“Thanks” Scarecrow…

Now that my normal stamping classes are done this month and my BIG birthday has passed into the sunset…I’ve got lots of “thanking” to do!

Here’s a start to my thank you cards…

Isn’t this little cookie cutter scarecrow just the cutest?  I thought he would look nice on my fall thank you notes…and it gave me a chance to make some woodgrain background in fall colors…

Here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  3-1/2″ x 5″ Crumb Cake Note Card, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Basic Black Ink Pads and Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride markers.  I used my Blush Blendability Pen, but if you don’t have that try crumb cake and add the color with a Blender Pen to keep it light so the Blushing Bride cheeks will show.
  • Stamps:  Cookie Cutter Christmas, Thoughtful Banners (sentiment), Woodgrain (background) and Timeless Textures
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies, Duet Banner, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

Digits

  • Cut the Soft Suede layer 3-1/4″ x 4-3/4″ attached to 3-1/2″ x 5″ Crumb Cake Notecard with SNAIL
  • Cut the Crushed Curry layer 3″ x 4-1/2″.  Stamp Woodgrain background stamp with Early Espresso.  Add border using Timeless Textures and Early Espresso ink.  Distress edges with distressing tool, scissors held in “v” shape or finger nails.  Don’t be afraid to add tears here and there.
  • Stamp and punch banner.  Add Pumpkin Pie marker to flagged ends.  Add to card front top with dimensionals.
  • Cut one large Swirly from Soft Suede.  Attach to bottom of card front with Thin Tipped Glue or Multirpurpose Glue.
  • Stamp, color and punch scarecrow.  Add several dimensionals to back.  Loop Linen Thread several times on back of scarecrow then attach at an angle over Swirly.

This cute little guy is going to help me let everyone know how much I appreciate them this month.

  1. This is a really cute card that will definitely convey your message. I love how you distress the Crushed Curry using the woodgrain stamp in Early Espresso and working the edges. You are having a blast using that technique. I can tell. It was overcast here last night and we couldn’t see the beautiful Harvest Moon, but we did see it the night before and it was lovely. Glad the VOLS made your day!! Have a great Sunday.

    • Yes, I need to move on from the distressing…so many ideas and so little time! The win yesterday was identical to the first two…not pretty, but a “W”! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend…B!
