Thankful and RAC

Hi Again...

Two more cards this afternoon.  They'll be visiting the galleries over at Time Out Challenges and Tic Tac Toe Challenge.


One more try with the print making technique from my last post, but a better die cut shape.  It to had its oh heck moment...the gold embossed sentiment did not show well, so I overstamped it with black.  Happy result, a nice shadow and it gives the big solid letters almost a filigree type look.

This on is going to visit at Tic Tac Toe with the diagonal of Heat Embossing, Big Sentiment, and Yellow.

My second card(s) are for Thanksgiving, and will be visiting Time Out Challenges - Season.

I bought this CTMH set last year but never got it out to play.  I cut the frame out of stencil material, and  used it as a guide for placing my letters and images on the card panel in my misti.  Took a lot of the guess work out of placement.


   

Thanks much for visiting.

More loveliness, Cat ... what a gorgeous, rich colour combo on your first card ... with just the right touch of softness in the background 'printing'! What a serendipitous find for your filigree sentiment ... it's fabulous ... the 'cardness' had me smiling! Your lettered alpha cards are fresh and graphic ... and so fun with those warm autumn images! Hugs, Anita :)

Aren't you glad you tried the print making again - your card is lovely. I think that is a wonderful way to make a background. That is a fun Thanksgiving card.
