Season of Gratitude

I wanted to share a couple of cards I recently made using stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy.  My 6 month term of being on the SNSS Design Team is drawing to a close and I have greatly enjoyed using Korin's lovely stamps and sentiments on my creations.

This card was made using a recent Split Coast Stampers sketch.   The stamps are from Forest Silhouettes and Autumn Bounty.
 I used the Square Lattice embossing folder from SU on both cards. I love the texture it gives to the cards.

I made my second card for a recent SCS Inspiration challenge.  This was my inspiration - a wall hanging from the  Handscapes Gallery web site.
and here is the card I created using Serene Silhouettes and Seeing Spots.  The background strips are pieces of weathered wood grain patterned paper by Fancy Pants.

Hope you are having a happy stamping day!

Oh - and just looking ahead -   The Waltzingmouse Design Team will be having a Stamp of Approval Parade Nov 1-4 using prior release Christmas stamp sets -  so please stop back then for lots of holiday inspiration!!

Julia,
Both are wonderful! I love the first one for all the rich texture, and the second one for the way it really looks like an old wood fence! Awesome!

Hugs!
