October 2019 - Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the October Joyful Stars Blog Hop. 

If you've come here from Stephanie Huber's Page then you are on the right track. If you've just happened upon my blog, just keep hoping until you get right back here.

It's October already. Fall is in the air and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Not to mention that it's the last month to order from the CTMH September/October Seasonal Catalog. If you'd like to see what's ending this month, you can view any of our catalogs Right Here.

My Card today uses a combination of the Gobble Til You Wobble Stamp Set as well as the October Stamp of the Month, Autumn Air.
The Sentiment was stamped with Paprika Ink.

The Kraft CS was Stamped with Toffee Ink using the Leaves and Acorn from the Autumn Air SOTM. 

The main images were colored using the Tri Blend Alcohol Markers then fussy cut out. 

As well as using the stamps from the Seasonal Catalog, I used the Stitched Rectangle Frames from the yearly Core Catalog,  to cut the Kraft and Fern Cardstock.
From this same Core catalog, I used the Strokes of an Artist Stamp Set to ground the Turkey. 

The Bow was made by pulling apart some discontinued Burlap Ribbon and making a bow with it. 

Now Hop on over to Joyce's Blog, where you may have started, or to get the entire list in case you got lost.
