Give Thanks, a stray Halloween card & a new stamp set!

I have a couple projects to share with you today.  The first one is a fall card we made at our workshops last month.  It uses the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and dies.

The words are from the For All Things stamp set.

We made our own ink pad from baby wipes.  See instructions below.
This card uses a technique where we make our own stamp pad with a baby wipe.  You put the baby wipe in a clear case or on a styrofoam plate, then put several drops of reinkers on the wipe, making sure to not leave any clear areas where you'll be inking your stamp.  For this wreath, we used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive.  If your wipe starts to get a little dry, lightly mist with water.  Don't add too much water or your colors will get muddy.  

Supplies used:
Wondrous Wreath and For All Things stamp sets, Wonderful Wreath Framelits
Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Old Olive Ink Refills
Elegant Eggplant ink pad
Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant & Very Vanilla Card Stock

What would Christmas be like without a wreath? Well, there's no need to wonder, because the Wondrous Wreath set has you covered, with two-step photopolymer stamps to add some dimension to your creation. Set quantity: 9.

I also found a stray Halloween card I had forgotten to post, so here's an idea for next year.

This card uses the Holiday Home stamp set.

This is a great set for different holidays.  There's a good selection to build any scene you want.  I'm loving the little ghost and bats with the bare trees.  We colored in the whole house (except for the windows) with a black sharpie after stamping with Black StazOn ink.  

We even stamped "happy halloween" on some Pumpkin Pie ribbon and added a pumpkin face on the knot.  
Supplies used:

Holiday Home stamp set, Ovals Collection Framelits
Black StazOn ink, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie ink (for sponging)
Basic Black, Crushed Curry and Whisper White card stock
1/4" Pumpkin Pie Cotton Ribbon, Stampin' Sponges
