Love To Scrap Challenge #42- Say it in Color

Hello Everyone!
Time for  new challenge on the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog!!  We have a fun new theme for the next two weeks:

Say It In Color

Stamp, Print, or die cut a sentiment in any other color except black or white.
Make any project with some stamping on it and link up on the challenge blog.

There are two fabulous sponsors for the challenge:

Prize: $10 gift certificate

Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet

Prize: $10 gift certificate

For my design team project, I used a fun digi set from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet and made Thanksgiving cards to send to my family.  I made two versions using the same image. And to  "Say It In Color", I stamped my sentiment in different colors of ink.


Materials List:
Stamps: Turkey Talk digi set from Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet; Alpha Dots from My Sentiments Exactly!
CS: Solar white Neenah; Orange, Ruby Red, and Pumpkin Pie from Stampin' Up
DP: Orange - Stampin' Up; Plaid - K & Company
Copic Markers
Dye Ink: orange and brown
Spellbinders dies- Circles and Rectangles
3/8" Circle Punch
Orange Ribbons
Liquid Pearls-white


  • Make cards from orange and Ruby Red card stock 
  • Layer with DP's
  • Print out the turkeys on Solar White CS--Let the ink dry
  • Color images with Copic Markers
  • Die cut images with Spellbinders and add a layer beneath
  • Add to card with dimensional adhesive

  • Stamp the Alpha Dots to spell out the words "Turkey Time" 
  • Punch out each letter with the 3/8" circle punch--or cut by hand
  • Add to the card with dimensional adhesive
  • Add ribbon bows


  • Card #2 is made the same way
  • Add Liquid Pearls to the background paper

Really fun image!!  I stamped Happy Thanksgiving on the inside.  The cards will be sent out to my family.
