Happy Thanksgiving crafty friends! My house smells like pumpkin pie at the moment. Even though I am in Australia, I still love Thanksgiving. We are having our big feast this weekend because we don’t get the day off. I can’t wait!
While in America this summer, I treated myself to a few new crafty items. Well almost an entire suitcase of fun crafty things. One of them was the entire set of Tombow markers. I haven’t had a chance to play with them until this last week. If your on our Instagram page, you’ve seen a few sneak peeks of things I am working on.
I was inspired to make a Fall Tree but realized that we don’t have any fall branches (that will be remedied next year ) So I went looking for the closest stamp set we had, which is our Springtime Beauty set. You can purchase this set this weekend for $5 with the discount code!
I colored only part of the branch not including the berries with Tombow Markers 879 and stamped directly on it. LOVE how those markers can color clear stamps and give such a fabulous image! Eeek! I am so excited!
I then grabbed my Autumn Blessings set and stamped random maple leaves using kraft and burnt orange ink. For the sky, I used a dauber with SU! Pool Party ink.
Our All Year Wishes II stamp set is being retired this year and used it for my thanksgiving sentiment. I tried something new with using black string to stitch both the top and bottom of my card. What do you think? It’s a big contrast and very bold.
I hope you enjoyed today’s cards. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Don’t eat too much! LOL! I miss you all so much and my family especially. Sending you peace, love, cheer and lots of laughter this wonderful holiday weekend. xoxo
