The Cutting Cafe-Thankful Inspiration!


Welcome to some Cutting Cafe Inspiration!  Today we're using a couple Printable Stamp Sets from the Cutting Cafe, the So Thankful Circle Word Set and the Thanksgiving Day Huge Word Circle Set.  I'm using the So Thankful set today!

I started with some more printable paper from Cute N Crafty Mommy shop on Etsy.  Love the texture that burlap print paper gives!  I combined it with some pretty patterned paper from Prima.  Love the contrast of the two papers together!  I printed one of the circle sentiment pages from the set and cut out my favorite sentiment with a scalloped circle die and then two more circles to fit in the center of the large circle.


Then I cut a bunch of leaves from the 3D Pumpkin File... love these leaves because they have stitching on them.  It takes a while for my Cricut to cut out a bunch, but I just set them to cut and went about my business until it was done.  After they were cut, I spritzed them with water and then added some watercolors using Prima Metallic Accents and set them aside to dry.  And don't think I made enough so I'd have extras to use on other projects!


And I've been participating in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge!  I have colored every day, but missed sharing one day because I had what I was coloring on a card that I couldn't share yet before I remembered to take a photo...lol!  These cuties from the From Owl of Us clear stamp set from The Cutting Cafe Shop were colored with Copics the other day and today I added some shading and detail with my Prisma colored pencils... a page from Kathy's book and I've fallen in love with this technique!  She said it was addicting and it is!!  So I'm linking this one up over at Kathy's blog for today's coloring.


Look at the shimmer on those leaves... love it!

I'm also playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 457!  It's a beautiful inspiration photo:




Just love this fun way to add a beautiful sentiment to a card!  You should definitely try out these printable sets and there are lots of other cool printables in the CC shop that have circle sentiments too!
