Grateful using Lawn Fawn stitched leaves

I went to a scrapbooking convention and picked up the new Stitched Leaves Lawn Fawn set and made 11 various Thanksgiving cards. Inked the edges to give them dimension against different embossing folders.

Single layer card set

I have to say I am pleased how these turned out.
Single layers cards for a craft fair I am doing next month at my church, we were to donate an item to a raffle basket so I came up with these.
 Above card, I cut out a window from a scrap piece of card stock and sponge in some green ink. Took the Stampin Up tree and stamped three trees for the backgroung. Took a darker green, removed the mask and stamped the tree full size as well as sentiment.
 above card I masked off a portion of top and bottom and sponged blue and green ink. Inked the French script from Stampin Up. Removed the two masked pieces and stamped the large branch and sentiment.
Similar directions as the top card. This one my favorite.

Peace on Earth

Saw this layout on Pinterest however I added piercing in the lower right corner and mounted 3 of my cards on red textured card stock.

Repurposed wine bottle for Christmas season

You've may have seen my other wine bottle post, however today I decorated the center with snowflaks felt trim from Martha Stewart in addition to gluing twine and flat back pearls. Getting ready for gift giving and craft fairs.

Reclaimed wood laundry sign

I was given a pile of old house siding /shingles and I think they are a perfect size for signs.
I picked this one from the pile as it still had a nail in it and it had a knot hole.
Bleached the sign and let it dried in the sun (didn't take long as yesterday was nearing 90°)
Spray paint in red
Using white acrylic paint and 2" stencils stamped the words
Added two very old clothes pins to twine
Edges the sign with white paint
Sprayed a protective layer of Mod Podge
