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.
Here is the list of the supplies I used in this Thanksgiving project:
