Bountiful Thanksgiving

For today's card, I combined two different Sparkle N Sprinkle new reveal stamp sets: Pilgrim Thanksgiving and Wisps of Autumn.

I stared out by stamping the images and sentiment onto a die cut frame by Creative Expressions (Spanish Collection - Granada) with Distress Ink (Black Soot) and then heat embossing them with Clear Detail embossing powder.  Copic markers were then used to color all of the images.

I used a variation of the Covered with Glitter technique to cover the entire piece.  Instead of glue or a Super Adhesive Sheet, I sprayed the piece with spray adhesive and then covered it with Lavender Iris glitter.  I thought this way would be easier considering all the little details in the die.

The Distressed Embossing technique was used on both of the patterned papers combining Distress Ink (Mustard Seed for the first panel and Vintage Photo on the card base) and Clear embossing powder.  As a finishing touch, I threaded a piece of ribbon through the side openings of the die cut before final assembly.

Anne, so sorry about the comment above. For some reason, blogger has done this to me a couple of times today. It looks like the comment doesn't go through and then it adds two (in this case) or 3 comments together. After that I get an error message code. I think I will stop with my comments for today and hope it will go better tomorrow :-)

Opps, another card I missed. What a fun Thanksgiving card Anne. I love this technique where you cover the panel and totally make it shine. I am going to try that this weekend! Super card. Hugz!
