That’s the theme for my tag. I really had fun making this tag. I basically stayed with one color. And what made it so easy were all the products I had in my stash to get that monochromatic look.
(you can click on the photos to get a larger view)
What I did first was use some collage tissue paper by 7 Gypsies from the Journey Collection. I used mod podge to adhere the tissue to a piece of card stock. Then I used Glue N’ Seal by Inkssentials in a matte finish to protect the tissue paper from moisture. I cut several strips of the tissue to make the small flowers. The steampunk padlocks were made using a silicone mold and paper clay. I embossed the padlocks with Aged Ochre Embossing Powder by Stampendous. The memo pins in the flowers are from Tim Holtz’s idea-ology line. I covered one of the pins also with Aged Ochre Embossing Powder. The other memo pin holds the theme message created on the Silhouette. The wooden Key is by KaiserCrafts. I painted the key with three shades of *Distress Paints to get a patina look (pumice stone, rusty hinge, & peeled paint). Then I added some *Distress Glitter (tarnished brass).
*The Distress Paints and Distress Glitter were purchased through a club. Kim often sells products by offering her customers a chance to join clubs where you pay a reduced cost over a 6 month period.

My card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white Bazzill card stock. My pattern paper is from the Echo Park Holly Jolly 6" X 6" paper pad. My red pattern mat is cut at 4" X 5 1/4". I cut a piece of green card stock 3" x 5 1/4" and used a border punch on each side. The music paper is the back side to the red paper and I cut it so it would fit on the green punched mat but it too is 5 1/4" tall. My tree, is from the new Sizzix Framelits Dies and Stamps Tim Holtz Christmas Tree set. I love the versatility of these sets. For this card I opted to not use the stamps but just the dies. But I just as easily could have stamped and cut, or just stamped.
I used three different shades of green card stock one for each layer with each layer getting a bit lighter. The star is cut from some gold paper and then sprayed with some Gold Glitter Dust. ( Be sure to stock up on the Glitter Dust spray, it is a holiday must have). To decorate my tree I added some random pearls using a variety of colors of Liquid Pearls.
I stamped my sentiment on some white card stock using some Memento ink. This color is called Love Letters and is a gorgeous red.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Clean and Simple is what my card is all about. I dug out an old leaf image rubber stamp to use as my focal point. I used Memento Rich Cocoa Ink for the leaf. Then I colored it with a Spica pen in Melon Green. And added orange and clear glitter with my *Wink of Stella Brush. (I am so addicted to these glitter brushes). I added Aged Spice and Aged Hunter embossing powders by Stampendous called Fran-Tage. The Border paper is from my stash. The button was made using a silicone mold and some Martha Stewart paper clay. And I added more Aged Spice and Aged Hunter to the button. My card is 5-1/2” square. And the base of the card is Kraft card stock. Everything is held together using a Tombow Adhesive Tape Runner.
The following products can be purchased from the Cutters Creek Online Store:
*Note: Kim will be carrying the Wink and Stella Brushes in the near future.

I wanted to make a Thanksgiving Wreath for my house but wanted something a little different. So, I decided to make a Rosette Wreath! I love how it turned out.
For my wreath, I started with six sheets of 8 1/2" X 11" card stock. I chose to use two different colors for my rosette wreath. Using my Scoreboard I scored on the paper every 3/4" of an inch on the 11" inch side. Once I had all my paper scored, I folded it accordion style.
To adhere my rosette together I used some 1/2" Kool-Tak. It is very similar to scor-tape. I then cut two 6" circles and hot glued them to the front and back of the rosette to hold it in place.
My turkey is from the Silhouette Store and was cut using my Cameo and some brown card stock. I used the offset feature in the Design software to create a shadow for my turkey and cut that out of some light rusty orange paper. I sprayed the brown layer of my turkey with some Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist.
My letters were cut from the A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge at 4". I cut these out of the same card stock as the turkey's shadow. I applied some Glossy Glue and Seal to each letter and sprinkled them with some of the Rusty Hinge Distress Glitter. The distress glitter is a special order item, so just ask if you want some.
I finished the wreath with a bow at the bottom. I made a loop out of the ribbon and hot glued it to the top of the wreath so I could hang it.
The wreath actually went together really quickly so this is something you could put together for just about any occasion. You could also use patterned paper for an entirely different look. I thought these colors just gave the appearance of the turkey's tail all fanned out. Let me know what you think, I would love it if you left me a comment.

It is a little house that is about 11" wide, and the banner on top is the name of the person. I used all the paper I had at home. I made the houses in 2 different colors, light brown and a dark brown. The window and banner are out of white, and vellum was used for the window. The roof was some paper that had Thanksgiving colors I liked. The door paper was cut out of some paper that had turkeys on it. The door knob was a small rhinestone bronze.
The banner I used the mini glue dots to hold it in place on top of the roof. All others I used Scotch quick-dry adhesive. The opening in the back I put a small piece of candy, or you could put a tea-light(battery operated of course)it would look like some one is in the house.
Hope you liked this project for Thanksgiving. Have a great weekend all.
