Autumn Greetings - Friends of SpeedyTV Challenge #8

Hello and welcome to another Monday.  Can you believe Christmas is in another month??  So with Thanksgiving this week, the Friends of SpeedyTV by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company is challenging you this week to make something based on the Thanksgiving theme.  For my project, I pulled out two of my favorite Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company fall sets (although one is now retired) along with the re-vamped Autumn Glory set to make my card.

I started out by stamping the scarecrow from the Fall Mini twice onto Corn Husk card stock in memento tuxedo black and the turkey/pumpkin from the now retired Country Thanksgiving set also in memento tuxedo black onto Corn Husk card stock.   Once all of my images were colored with prismacolor markers, and one of the scarecrows cut out, I decided to stamp an additional sunflower from the scarecrow's hat and color that one more time. 

Taking some Michael's Recollections Autumn designer paper, I layered it onto Stampin Up! pumpkin pie card stock that had been stamped with the maple leaf from the Autumn Glory set also in matching pumpkin pie ink.  Once I had added some silk maple leaves to the card, I took the layered turkey & pumpkin images, lightly stippled Stampin Up! pumpkin pie ink around the edges, and then added those over the leaves using pop up glue dots.  For the final touches, I took the cut out scarecrow face and popped that up using pop dots, then layered the additional sunflower using pop dots as well before adding some Ranger Crystal Accents to highlight the center of the sunflower. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Don't forget to stop by the Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company blog to check out the new November releases being showcased this week by the Senior Design Team.  Make sure to stop by and leave some love on all of the Design Team's blogs this week letting them know how much you appreciate the eye candy they've made with these new stamps.
