So Grateful ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card and Try Stampin' on Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the last challenge for October over at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday.  This month we've been focusing on Holiday themed cards and projects.  I've been posting Christmas cards, but decided to do more of a Fall/Thanksgiving card this time around.  Plus it's a Blog Hop too!  I love going from blog to blog in a blog hop and I hope you have as much fun as I do checking out everyone's cards.  When you're done checking out my post make sure you head over to the talented Sharon Burkert's Blog HERE so you can see what she created!  I'll have more news below about prizes, so make sure you keep reading...

I created a couple of different cards with this week's sketch and I love how the cards turned out!

I used Pan Pastels to create the color on my leaves (yes, again! lol) and spritzed them with Journey Shimmer Gold Color Splash and also added the speckled look with Gold Silk.  So excited that I finally got some!!

This is the second card I created.  Love the multi-colored leaves on both of the cards!

This Oak leaf got a big dobber of gold silk! lol

Ok...I said there would be prizes, right?  Well in order to be able to be eligible to win a prize you just need to comment on every blog post of this blog hop.  Yup, that's it, and one of you will be the lucky winner!  Remember you need to head over to Sharon's blog HERE after you're done with mine.  If you  missed the previous post in the blog hop head back to the lovely LeAnne's blog HERE.  I hope you enjoyed hopping with us!

  1. Very pretty! I'm a sucker for fall cards (especially leaves) - the colors make me happy. :)

    1. Thank you, "Dandydo"! I love fall cards too! :)

  2. Oh Sara, they are all so beautiful. I also have some of this spray but I never use it. Now you have inspired me. It really adds a lot - great job! Anyone will LOVE to receive anyone of these beautiful cards. Great job!
    Hugs, Sarah T

    1. Thank you, Sarah! I love FJS color splashes! Have fun using yours! :)

  3. I really like your take on the sketch. I was sort of expecting Christmas but love the fall colours. I moved into a new place this summer with two huge Maple trees in the yard and have so enjoyed watching them change to vibrant yellows and oranges and reds and gently fall to the ground. Not so keen about raking them - cards don't need raking! Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Lori! I was thinking Christmas too until I needed some thank yous. I double checked to make sure our blog creator didn't mind a Fall/Thanksgiving card and she said, "Go for it!" so I did. :) Glad you're enjoying the changes in your Maple trees! We have a few and so does our neighbor. They usually just turn yellow and drop, but this year we've had reds and oranges too...loving it!

  4. Awww the beautiful fall colors of those beautiful leaves!
    Great job, TFS,

  5. I love fall cards! The colors and simplicity are fantastic!

  6. This is a really nice card, love the colors.

  7. Interesting take on the sketch. Love the colours!

  8. amazing card. Those leaves are so life like!

    1. Thank you, Diana! I do love making leaves for my cards in the fall. :)


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
