Happy Thanksgiving

This was one of the cards we created at my Big Shot class last week.....there is a lot going on with the card and a couple of fun techniques that I thought I would try and explain to those unable to attend!

The 2 Early Expresso pieces were run thought the Big Shot using the embossing folder delightful decorations.  Then we sanded the embossed side to give it a worn look!  The center Sweater Weather DSP piece was run through the big shot with the lattice square embossing folder.

The Maple Leaf stamp is done with a technique called Thumping....one that has been around for years and in my opinion is always a great technique for fall time.  With Thumping you'll use 3-4 markers.  Always start with the lightest marker first....in this case Crushed Curry we colored the entire stamp.  Then the next lightest color was Cajon Craze which we took the brush end of the maker and lightly tapped it around on top of the stamp.  Next we took the Chocolate Chip marker and tapped it around.  Now the next step is super important...before you stamp on your cardstock "HUFF" or breathe on your stamp.  The moisture from your breathe will remoisten the ink.  Stamp on your cardstock and yes we hand cut the leaf!  No one could believe we didn't have a framelit or punch to use!
