Third Thursdays Hello Holiday Blog Hop

Can you believe that it is already Thursday!? We are off to a watch Wesley play Football in Holyoke this afternoon. He came home from practice the other day telling me that he has decided to play Basketball as well... So it seems that the busy mom schedule will not have a lull after football is over!
Today I am back with the 3rd Thursday Blog Hop team designing cards with goodies from our new Holiday Catalog! I actually have two card classes this weekend using products from the new catalog so it was perfect timing! 

This amazing fall themed card is created using the Gather Together and Coming to Gather Designer Series Paper. Would you believe that I designed this TODAY! After seeing a card one of our concept artists made, I asked her how she colored the pumpkins. Needless to say, this may be my new favorite technique! I simply stamped onto our Shimmery White cardstock and used my Aquapainter to move the ink around! My leaf was done with Early Espresso and the pumpkins were done in Cajun Craze, Gray Granite and Mint Macaron. This layered onto a gingham stitched oval with a few Cajun Craze thread loops. I adhered this over a Gray Granite Birch stamped background that is accented with the polka dot burlap designer series paper. A nice big bow and Pretty Peacock sentiment was perfect touch. This is nicely matted on Early Espresso card stock with a base of Mint Macaron! 

I am so glad that you stopped in today to see my creation! I can't wait to show you what my friend Kimberley Morris has made for you today! You can get to her by clicking the next button below!


  1. Sooo Pretty! I just ordered this suite. Looking forward to making my Thanksgiving cards with it. The Birch Background Stamp is perfect here.

  2. Beautiful Andrea! I'll have to try that fun technique!

  3. Oh wow! Love all the colors and how you colored the pumpkins.

  4. That's a fun technique coloring the pumpkins and I bet the shimmery white looks even better in person. Fabulous card!
