Time to Give Thanks

As promised, here are some more cards using stamps from the JustRite set called "Antique Autumn Tags One" that are designed to be cut out with their "Antique Tags One" dies. As before, they serve as a part of a focal that was created by layering cuts from other die sets. 

Though it looks elaborate, this first card was really quick and easy because everything except the layered stamped focal was already printed on the scrapbook paper I chose for the background.  It is called "Grateful Multi-Stripe" made by KI Memories.  You can't really tell it in the picture, but the oval mat piece is a copper metallic paper that is really glimmers and shines when you see it in person.  The die used to cut it is a part of Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles set.  The gold piece on top of that was cut and embossed  using a die from their Gold Labels Four set.  The tag focal was stamped in brown ink and colored with metallic chalks.

This card again uses papers from the DCWV "Harvest Gathering" 4.5 x 6.5 Matstack.  The background is a piece that has been inked around the edges.  The focal is once again layered die cuts using Spellbinder's dies.  The largest one (brown) is from the 5X7 Elegant Labels Four set, and the yellow and rust-colored ones are all cut with dies from their Gold Labels Four set. The focal was stamped in brown ink and colored with chalks.
