Thankful Colors for Friday Mashup

Its time for another Friday Mashup and it's my turn to host the challenge. With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away I tried to think of some colors that remind me of that holiday, and this is what I came up with. I just love the earthy richness of these three tones, don't you? For the 2nd part of the mashup let's see some 3D items....I'm really bad about taking the easy route and not venturing away from cards so I thought it would be nice to branch out and try something outside of my comfort zone!

I don't have a lot of Thanksgiving decorations so I decided to make something I could put up in the living room. It completely morphed into something different than what I originally envisioned but I still like how it came out, and my husband liked it too, so it worked out okay!

It was really hard to photograph but I used some Sweater Weather DSP around the matte and the middle piece is Baked Brown Sugar DSP. I stamped the Magnificent Maple stamp in Crushed Curry and sponged the edges with the Baked Brown Sugar. The 'thankful' was cut out using the Expressions Thinlet die and some older Always Artichoke DSP I had.  The acorns are from the set Truly Grateful.

Make sure you come by The Friday Mashup and check out the great projects from the DT!
  1. Create a project with a "Baked Brown Sugar, Always Artichoke & Crushed Curry."
  2. Create a "3-D project."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "3-D Project with the above Color Combo."



  1. This is beautiful, Lisa! Definitely a great piece for the walls/table side this thanksgiving. Great challenge this week - thanks :)

  2. Lovely, Lisa. Such a great project to give as a gift or use year after year as a decorative item in the fall. Heck, so nice to look at every day. The Curry really stands out as a great background with the design you created!
