Give Thanks - Stamp Simply #159

It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge. Today, Sharon wants us to think in 3's. Here's what she says:

Oct. 1 – ssnotime159 – Three is the Number – Today’s challenge calls for us to think in 3’s.  Your project should incorporate 3 panels (as in background panels) OR 3 images (as in the focal point).  Things always look pleasing to the eye when grouped in 3’s, so let’s see what kind of eye-pleasing trios we can come up with today!

I thought this would be a perfect time to break out my new Take Three: Fall set by PTI. I stamped the three pumpkins on an MFT Cream Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic markers. Then I cut them out and matted them. I ran the Rustic Cream layer through my Cuttlebug with the Woodgrain Impression plate, and finished up by adding some ribbon and the sentiment tied onto a button with some twine.

So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime159 if you upload to a public forum. Don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also I'm sure you'll be seeing some fabulous examples of how this technique *should* look from the design team, including our Guest Designer for October, Jerri Kay of A Touch Of Grace.
