MIO Compadres November Thanksgiving/Fall Autumn Breeze Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to the MIO Compadres November Autumn Breeze Hop.  This month is all about Thanksgiving and Fall. We have lots of great projects to get you in a creative mood!  You should have arrived here from Jasmine's blog, if not, please click the Previous Button below and check out her great creations.

For my first card I used Fun Stampers Journey stamps, dies, and splashes.

I started with a white piece of card stock that is 3 3/4 inches by 5 inches.  I placed the paper in a box and then sprayed it with FSJ Journey Splashes Sweet Berry, Pineapple Smoothie, Citrus Cooler, and Shimmer Gold.  I used my heat gun to dry the paper faster.  I cut the turkey using FSJ Holiday Box Window Plates Die set and the  leaves using the FSJ Thxgiving Die set from gold glitter paper.  I placed these on my card stock and used a pop dot on one of the leaves to make it pop. I used a brown marker to color in the turkey.  I stamped the sentiment from FSJ Thanksgiving Medley stamp set with black ink. I adhered my stamped paper to a black piece of card stock measuring 4 inches by 5 1/4 inches.  I then placed this on a decorative piece of paper that was just smaller then the card base.  The card base is an A2 base from craft card stock.  I glued some copper colored sequins to finish the card.  I love the watercolor effect that you get from the splashes.  Make sure you spray in a confined area or it can get all over.

My second project is a tag using Julie Nutting's doll stamp "Collette" and some leaves I picked up at Dollar Tree.  

I stamped the "Collette" stamp onto white card stock with black Memento Ink and colored it with my Copic Markers.  I stamped the doll coat on a piece of gold swirled decorative paper.  I fancy cut the doll and jacket out.  I glued the jacket to the doll.  I cut an 8 inch tag out of heavy card stock and then covered the front and back with decorative paper.  I punched a hole in the top for the ribbon.  I used VersaMark Ink on the sentiment and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the stamping bella
"Casey has a cornucopia" stamp set.  I adhered the doll to the tag and layered leaves  with a liquid adhesive into a skirt.  I used pop dots on the sentiment.  I placed a gold piece of string through the top and the tag was completed.  I used this card for a tag swap and the recipient loved it!!!!
