Gift Bag Punch Board Turkey

Hi Stampers,

I wanted to share with you what I made to put on the table at Thanksgiving. Little bags of roasted peanuts made with the gift bag punch board. I used the gorgeous foil doilies for the turkey tail. I then used the retired Snow Friends framelit dies for the front of the body of the turkey, the hat which I trimmed a little to look more "pilgrim-y" and the feet. The  2-1/4" Starburst punch I used for the back of the body. The DSP is from the Merry Little Christmas DSP which I colored with Cajun Craze! 


My card guts for my Thanksgiving cards:


All put together!!!


A fellow DOStamper Star, Mackenzie Fuchs designed this Thanksgiving card which I CASED (Copy and Share Everything). Isn't it just gorgeous? Thank you Mackenzie!!!


Don't forget!!--Online Extravaganza is going on this week or until supplies last!!! Be sure to place your order today!!!


Happy Stamping!!!



DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #249-I am Thankful for You


Hi Stampers,

This week's sketch is all about home to me. At this time of the year, I always feel like "nesting". Don't you? Cooking, baking, decorating your home for comfort and what not. Well my card this week shows the beautiful fall colors showing in my neighborhood. Such a vibrant pallet and just plain gorgeous. I used sponge daubers in Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to get the colors of my leaves. I then used the leaf framelit from Colorful Season to cut them out. Some of the leaves I "popped" up on dimensionals to give even more dimension. I also punched out some leaves from the new leaf punch. The wood textures paper  worked great for my background. I then cut out a wreath from the Swirly Scribbles and embossed the sentiment from Painted Harvest in gold. 




Would you like to recreate this card for your own stash? Remember you can order everything from my website.  Thanks for visiting!!!

Hi Stampers,

For this week's challenge, the colors look like all about Fall!!! Naturally, I reached for my new stamp set that has not left my desk yet--you guessed it-Painted Harvest!!! The sunflowers look great in these colors and the sheen of the Basic Black ribbon is beautiful!!! I also used my new Pretty Label punch.




After stamping for how many years and I am finally remembering to stamp on the inside of the card and envelope? Geez.....

 This bundle is a must-have for any card maker.  You'll find LOTS of uses for theLeaf Punch.  The Painted Harvest stamp set can be used all year-long as well.  Be sure to add the Painted Harvest Bundle #146021  (bundle and save 10%) to your shopping bag!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #247-Painted Harvest Acorns


Hi Stampers,

Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

One of the first stamp sets I ordered from the new catalog was Painted Harvest. I just love it!!! It gives a watercolor look to the flowers. The best thing---there is no wrong way to stamp it. It is a 2 step stamp set.  I stamped the solid stamp first and then the detailed stamp. It also is bundled with a new leaf punch. I will probably make you sick of it as I have been stamping my heart out with this set. You can find it in the new Christmas catalog.








Remember from Sept.1-Oct.31 there is a hostess promotion going on!!!

Go order your set today!!!

Thank you for stopping by!!!


Make A Wish with Turkey Wishbone

Hi Stampers,

Growing up, my brother Tom and I used to fight over who got the wishbone at Thanksgiving. Did you too? I was playing with my new set Paisleys and Posies and look what I came up with.  I think it is cute. Don't you? I really like it because it is a different take on the other Thanksgiving cards I see and ones I create. I also used one of my Paper Pumpkin kit stamps to stamp the pumpkin background. Those little stamp sets are gems!!! I wish I would remember to use them more. And, did you see the circle framelits? They are the new stitched framelit which in my book ARE THE BOMB!!! I have wanted those FOREVER!!! I am so glad Stampin' Up! brought these out AND they are offering them to all of us, demos and customers early from the annual catalog which doesn't come out until next year!!! Isn't that great? I also like using the sentiment "Make A Wish" from a Birthday Set called Party with Cake. I love finding other ways to further my supplies.




Of course, don't forget to stamp the inside!!


This is the framelit I used to make the "wishbone". Just die cut it and cut it down with scissors.

Pilgrim Hat Clothespins

Hi Stampers,

I had some leftover black glimmer paper and mini clothespins so I made some pilgrim hat clips. Perfect for clipping to little snacks for your Thanksgiving table. I made two different ones. One uses the Artisan punch, 1" circle punch and  2" circle punch. The other uses the Artisan punch and small oval punch.



I also used some retired punches as well--Artisan Label and oval punch. I also used retired white satin ribbon.



I hope you will give this a try. The glue dots work MUCH better than the green glue (ask me how I know *wink*)

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #206-Turkey Table Favors



We are having a product spotlight challenge this week. We were to use one of Stampin' Up's packaging dies. I haven't used my Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit like in, forever so I chose to use this for the challenge. I wasn't quite sure what to make to WOW you with but with the upcoming holidays this idea popped into my head. I thought they would make the cutest table favors for Thanksgiving!!!! What do you think? I bought a pack of 7 of the dry roasted almonds  and placed one inside.




I made 4 "drumsticks" and 4 "bones". I adhered 2 of each together and then adhered them with dimensionals to each side. I sponged Soft Suede around the die cutouts before putting together. I cut the "drumsticks" out of the leaf framelits from the Flower Fair framelits set. I think the thick Baker's twine looks like the basting string you tie up your turkey with.







Stamp Set: None

Ink: Soft Suede

Paper: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Big Shot, magnetic platform, Flower Fair Framelits, white doily, dimensionals, tear and tape, Curvy Keepsake Box thinlits, YUM from Baker's Box thinlits, heart framelits, decorative label punch,Very Vanilla thick baker's twine
