Thankful for Nuvo Sparkle and Thanksgiving Blessings-Karen Hasheck

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and I am grateful for family, dear friends and the opportunity to design with Nuvo sparkle and Tonic Studios dies. I recently pulled out my Nuvo Glimmer Pastes, Sparkle Dust fine glitters, Pure Sheen Glitters, Embellishment Mousse and Crystal Drops to create some Thanksgiving sparkle.

 

I die cut four red maples leaves using a die from the September Harvest Die set. The two maple leaves on the left were die cut out of two sided tape paper from Sookang, and I applied Nuvo’s Hollywood Red Sparkle Dust fine glitter to one and Nuvo’s Pure Sheen Ruby Red glitter to the other.  I used an inexpensive large brush to add Golden Crystal and Garnet Red Glimmer Paste to the leaves on the right.

Next I die cut a multitude of different kinds of leaves from Tonic’s three Autumn Die Collections out of fall colored cardstock and two sided tape sheets. Then I colored them with Nuvo Glimmer Pastes, Sparkle Dust fine glitters and Pure Sheen glitters. I also die cut some acorns and colored those with brown Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I die cut my wreath card out of gold cardstock using several circular layering die sets from Tonic. Then I attached a fall harvest of sparkly leaves and a couple acorns all around the wreath front using my Nuvo and Tonic glue pens. Through the open center of the wreath, you can see a digital stamp of one of my favorite sayings “when I count my BLESSINGS, I count you twice” that I found shared here. I printed it on orange cardstock, cut it out with one of Tonic’s Scalloped Circle Layering Basics dies and added some English Mustard Crystal Drops.
