Give Thanks

I love new releases!!!  Today there’s a new release for JustRite Stamps called Give Thanks – Nested Frames.  I’m getting those fall stirrings and I almost think that the more I dream and reflect on my favorite fall things like cider and pie, Thanksgiving, russet leaves and the smell of a fire place, the quicker it will get here.  Well, I guess a gal can dream (sigh)!   It will be here soon enough right?  Well I love pulling out fall tones so that’s what I’ve done with this card.  All of the nested collections at JustRite lend themselves to stacking very well, so I really went with the layers today.  

To set this up I created a base with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen #5.  On top of the base I layered one of the square nested frames cut with Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles LG #4.  My next layer up is cut with Spellbinders Mega Ovals LG #2 and #4 followed by an additional rectangle cut with Long Classic Rectangles LG #2.  My center, the Give Thanks sentiment, was cut by hand (ahem, that cut by hand thing is a very rare occurrence in my life).  Along the left edge of the card I cut a border with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Border Petites

To finish off I tied a bow and added these fun flower filigree pieces.  They all bell caps for jewelry, but I flattened them with a wood block and they make a nice embellishment to draw your eye along the bottom edge of the card.

    Hey Becca,

    Another beauty of a card. You never cease to amaze me.

    BTW, I can smell wood burning from a neighbours house. The leaves are turning colour and it’s a crisp 9C, right now. Not sure what that is in Farenheit but it’s chilly, here in Ontario, Canada.

    You are welcome to come up for a cuppa. Fall is only days away but it is, surely, Fall now.

    Keep on keep on, my friend. Look forward, as always, to each day’s look at your blog.

    I have just recently discovered your beautiful creations. Truthfully, I was getting a little bored with my own ideas and somewhat in a rut with my cards. Your work has beauty and power in it. Thank you for sharing your creativity and your faith. I feel newly inspired.ReplyCancel

    I love the layered effect, Becca! I think you have a real knack of designing your cards so they ‘pull’ the viewer in. In other words your cards are not flat!

    Thank you for sharing with us.ReplyCancel

    I love your creativity Becca, it’s nice to see someone who is not afraid of a hammer and a woodblock to make something fit! Card it beautiful and the extra “flattened” out embellies are just the perfect touch! Thanks again for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Lovely card and also sweet thoughts about autumn. It seems to be a big thing your side of the pond to relish the fall coming on. To most of us in the UK, it just means more miserable weather to follow the misterable weather of summer!!!

    However, I love it that its harvest time and all natures foodstuff is ripe and ready. All the hardwork of the spring is coming to fruition and we’re enjoying, quite literally, the fruits of our labour.

    Looking forward to more home grown produce next year.
