…Saving A Place At The Table

card_1485_FallDecorations

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  It’s time for another challenge brought to you by All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge Blog!  This week’s challenge was to create some sort of FALL DECORATION!  I chose to create some seating cards for our Thanksgiving dinner this year…here’s mine!  I used the C.C. Designs’ “Sunflower Emma” image from the stamp kit called, “Take A Seat”.  I printed the digital image in Black onto some White Cardstock, then colored her with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the colored image with some patterned papers from the Jackson Lodge paper pad from Collage Press.  I used some older Sizzix Alphabet Dies and my Big Shot to create my name with some scrap pieces of Chocolate Cardstock.  I ran the diecut letters through one of my Xyron Sticker Makers, then adhered the sticky letters to the patterned paper background.  I cut Emma out, then attached her to the upper left-hand corner of the place card with Dimensionals.  After adding some Stitching and Paper Piercing the card was complete.

Be sure to head over to the ATS Wednesdays Challenge Blog to play along with us!  Every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered…but in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store.Whether it is one of our wonderful in-house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm EST with only one entry per person please!

Check out what the other Challenge DT members came up with:

That’s it for now!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another Verve Day Thursday using some of the new October Release images!  Until then…
