And now for my projects.... I used the adorable turkey stamps and a sentiment from the Let's Get Stuffed set and made a feminine and a masculine version of a Fall themed card.

I decided to try my hand at making a rocker card. I've seen them on Pinterest and I just can't get over how easy they are! You just cut a circle and fold it in half! I used my Cricut CTMH Artiste cartridge to cut the circles. To keep with a Fall theme I made wreaths out of autumn leaves. I love how these cards rock side to side. It's so cool!

 The papers are all from DCWV Fall themed stacks. The tags are cut with my Cricut Small Talk Frames & Tags cartridge. 

I used my Cuttlebug on half of the card to give it a bit of texture and embossed a few of the leaves. I heat embossed the sentiment with gold on the first card and added some bling. 

I had so much fun coloring these turkeys with my Spectrum Noir pens. I went over the turkey feathers with my Wink of Stella pen and it gave them just a perfect amount of shimmer. This is such an awesome Fall stamp set! You can even use this rocker template to do place cards for your Thanksgiving dinner table! Easy peasy!

I hope you liked my projects. Thanks for hopping by!
