Wednesday Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge #8, Belli Challenge #41, and Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply #59

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! The election is over an now we can get on with our lives....stamping and challenges, to be specific!!! Today's Rubbernecker Bloggers Challenge #8 (RNBC9), brought to us by Bev Gerard, is to make a card with two or more folds. You can check it out on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog. I decided to make a two fold card using the gorgeous Rubbernecker cornucopia image. I know I used it last week but I can't help myself!! I did change the design so that's gotta count for something!!

The Belli Challenge #41 found on Chrissy's (chrissyd723) blog is to make table decorations with a Thanksgiving or Christmas Theme. Since Sharon Johnson's (notimetostamp) Stamp Simple Challenge #59 is to make an Autumn card and
incorporate a button into the design, I decided to go with the Thanksgiving theme.

I made the Thanksgiving thank you card for my DD Holly (hbrown) since she is having our family over for Thanksgiving dinner.

The image was stamped twice with Memento Brown and one was colored with copics. The colored image was cutout and attached to the other stamped image with dimensionals. Crystal Effects was applied to some of the vegetables and dusted with Dazzling Diamonds. All the layers were distressed and the image layer was sponged with Ranger Distress Ink Scattered Straw and Lavender Lace. The sentiment, by Rubbernecker Stamps, was stamped with Memento Brown, too. Distressing and sewing was done around the background panels, they were attached to the folded sides, and then the image layers were attached to the left panel only so the card opens from the center. The ribbon is is from Strano Designs.

I also made matching placecards using the same Rubbernecker Cornucopia Stamp.

The images were stamped with Memento Brown and colored with Copic Markers.
I used the ticket corner punch on the corners, backed the vanilla layer with Chocolate Chip, tied on a ribbon, and added the kick stand. I used a piece of vanilla cs 4 x 1/2 inches. The bottom end of the piece was scored at 1" and then at 2". Adhesive was applied to both ends, the ends were attached to the back side as shown in the photo. fold at the scoring marks to form the stand.

Such a beautiful set Joan and a lovely idea for your Thanks giving Dinner, you're DD is going to love them. I'm not surprised that you want to keep using the stamp, it's very beautiful and so is your colouring and design. I love how the little place cards all have a different coloured ribbon. A wonderful idea. Hugs, Chris
