Thanksgiving Marathon, Part Twelve (and LAST!)

One more! This is what I made with those distressed panels and ribbon roses:

No, you are not lost. This is The Crooked Stamper blog. I just took a sideways step for a moment. I usually use this sentiment for guys and put it on fun, colorful DSP, but as soon as I decided to use black with the distressed vanilla, ergo vintage-y and old-looking, I knew the sentiment needed to be used here. In black.

The die is a Tim Holtz die I bought in a weak moment. I was probably still under some Jennifer McGuire spell after her class or something. It's a Movers & Shapers die, but I don't have any of the moving parts.

I sponged the sentiment panel with Crumb Cake, then sponged Basic Grey around the edges so it didn't blend into the background. I punched a hole on the left side of the sentiment panel and tied the ribbon through it. The sentiment panel is popped up on Dimensionals, and the ribbon rose is stuck on with a few glue dots.

This was pretty easy to put together, and it is certainly different than most of my stuff.

When I finish the last 3 of this card, I will have made 48 cards during this 4-day weekend, and most of them today. Yeah, I was a slug there for a few days.

Thus ends the weekend marathon. Thanks for sticking with me. If you have just arrived and your InBox is stuffed - sorry. ;( You are probably safe until next Thanksgiving. I don't think I could do this again any time soon.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You have been one busy, busy girl! If I could get 48 cards done in a MONTH I'd be thrilled! Good for you, I say! (And the slug-fest* is deserved every now and again, I'm also sayin'...)

    *as in being a slug, not punching someone...

  2. Tres' elegant!! Well, except for the "You are old" part. HAHHAHA!! That's just you being irreverent. I know. ;) But I love the look of the embossing folder with your BEAUTIFUL ribbon rose!! WOWEEE!! So pretty. I give this card....

    10 STARS!!


  3. I just popped in to see if you were around and posting anything about Thanksgiving and....
    WHAM !
    You hit us with a twelve part marathon ! I don't post that much in an entire month!
    I wish I had as much time to play as you do.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
