Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz

It's time for another Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Hop!  This month the theme is Gratitude/Thanksgiving


I made a little autumn scene with A Cottage Home, and leaves and a sentiment from Peace and Plenty.  Colored the cottage with Copic markers, and then popped it up with dimensionals. 


The background is made with the Woodgrain Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink.  I then found a basket of scraps from old patterned paper lines that I loved, and paper-pieced the maple leaf from Peace and Plenty

I am anxious to waltz around and see all of the inspiration for this theme.  You can never have too many thank you cards on hand!  There is still time to play along.  Just add your blog post to the link list of waltz participants seen HERE on the forum!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:
Stamps:  A Cottage Home, Peace and Plenty, both Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  Vintage Cream, Fine Linen, Papertrey Ink
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa ink, Copic Markers, Tim Holtz Distress inks in Rusty Hinge, Antique Linen, and Walnut Stain
Other:  Woodgrain Impression plate, Papertrey Ink, circle nestie, cream satin ribbon

So pretty Kelly! I keep repeating myself, but I just love how that little cottage can be so versatile. And just when I thought that my WMS wish list was all caught up, now I have to go check out Peace and Plenty;)

Wow! Wow, wow, wow! Where do I start? Every little detail is perfect. The coloring of the cottage, your choice of sentiment, the woodgrain background. But the things that really stand out to me are those lovely little leaves - stamping them on patterned paper - divine!
