A Thanksgiving Ship and a Strawberry B'day

I promised to share with you the projects I taught at my class at the Paper Tree this weekend. We made this great Mayflower ship and two clean and simple Thanksgiving cards. The sail is made using the Labels Eight Nestabilities. I inked all over them with a Chai ink cube. The paper for the ships is woodgrain by Amuse.

The template for this super ship was made by Qbee and can be found on Split Coast here. It's the perfect size to place at each guests seat at your Thanksgiving table filled with nuts or candys. Last year I made some and stamped everyone's name on the sail as place markers.
The cards are each 4x4 size with score lines at top and bottom. The cute turkey wagon stamp is by Amuse. (may be retired). The sentiment is Just Rite Stamps - Brayton Font 50 pt

This fun pilgrim hat is by Inkadinkado (may be retired) and the sentiment is by Hero Arts. I colored both images with Copics.

On this Mayflower the stamps are Stampin up - Hello from All Occasions Sayings and Happy Thanksgiving from All Year Cheer III (I think both sets are retired)

I love how cute these are! And they go together really easily - I'm making them for everyone this year!

Next up is my card for the challenge on Split Coast today.

Dawn (treasureoiler) was the featured stamper . I needed to make a b'day card for my 4 year old God-Daughter, Eden and I knew I'd find a wonderful card to CASE because Dawn uses lots of cute little girl stamps on her cards!

Sure enough I found this adorable card to CASE.

I changed the image, the colors and added a lacey punched edge as well as the number 4.

Eden loves Strawberry Shortcake - so I found an image on line and printed it on card stock. I colored it with Copics and framed it with circle Nestabilities. I added a couple of gemstones for a touch of glitter! I'll be giving her this tomorrow night along with a few gifts - we're getting together for a little tea party!
Thanks so much for coming by!
