Happy Thanksgiving - Fall Tag

I am a little late with my Thanksgiving wishes.  I developed a problem with a tooth just before the holiday and have been in a lot of pain.  I did get some pain medication, but it pretty much knocked me out so that didn’t help me to be very productive.  Oh well, I figure everyone was busy with cooking turkey (my hubby did ours), running around doing early shopping, or putting up their Christmas decorations.  Now that you are done, Happy Thanksgiving!!


Before I dive into the Christmas holidays I wanted to share a few more Thanksgiving creations.  I had a lot of fun creating this Fall Tag.   It started out with a layered base, cut out with Spellbinders’ Grand Labels Four.  I added some homemade washi tape (tutorial coming soon) but I think I covered most of it up.  The sentiment, from the Fall Harvest Set, is stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on another Spellbinders’ die.  I colored the stamped Pumpkin Patch image with alcohol markers, cut it out, and popped it up with Sticky Thumb Dimensionals.  


The leaves are created by die cutting glittered sticker paper and dry embossing. They are layered with a lovely Fanciful Flourish and a bow.  I also added some cute quilled flowers, created from another die. 

In the craziness of the Thanksgiving holiday, I hope everyone had time to be with family and friends.  That is what I am most thankful for this year.

Marie, this is amazing! Such gorgeous colors. I am sorry to hear about the tooth pain. When the teeth hurt, everything hurts. Looking forward to the tut - but in the meantime, you name goes into the drawing for the glitter paper made with velvet glitter!
