Harvest Home

Awhile back I told you our team finally had a name. Since then my up-line has informed me that we couldn't have that name because it was to close to someone else's. We now are official with the name of ATT-Always Thumpin' and Thwackin'. Today I decided to start living up to our team name so I went all out on this card thumpin' and thwackin'. I love the look it gives and it's fun to do.

I also was on Create with Connie and Mary's site and decided to enter this in their current ccmc 117 inspiration challenge. The cake colors inspired my color choices for this card and then I chose the stamp set. Thanks girls for another great challenge. You all should try it at least once. Challenges are so fun and inspiring.

This is my first card for the fall season other than Halloween. I wanted this set for so long and finally purchased it last month. It will be used a lot in the coming months. I hope you get inspired by it.

Stamp set: Harvest Home

Ink: Early Expresso, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive also these 3 markers.

Cardstock: Early Expresso Card, layers are 2 3/4 x 3, 1 1/8 x 3, 1 1/4 x 4, Old Olive layer is 4 x 5 1/4, Pumpkin Layer is 3 3/4 x 5 and Very Vanilla layers are 2 5/8 x 2 3/4, 7/8 x 2 3/4, 1 x 4. I ran the Pumpkin Pie and all 3 layers of Very Vanilla through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice folder after I stamped them. I then thwacked everything with all 3 colors. "WOW". I love it. Only other accessory was the dimensionals.

You really need the Big Shot, you can do so much with it and it totally changes the look of your cardstock. You can purchase it here.

Thanks for stoppin in!

Have a blessed day!
