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!

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #253-Tootsie Pop Pumpkin Holders

#253

Hi Stampers,

Welcome back to this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. We are having a Home Sweet Home challenge. I drew inspiration from the pumpkins on the pillows. I immediately turned to the Christmas catalog drooling over the Pick A Pumpkin bundle. Since I do not own that set (yet--will be ordered this weekend!!!) Isn't it great that Stampin' Up! offers these in a bundle to save you 10%?

I decided to CASE a project I saw on Pinterest. I know they are simple but I am keeping with the theme of Halloween treat holders on my blog. It is this cute little tootsie pop sucker holder. All you need to do is cut out 6 of the "pumpkins" from the oval and circle layering framelits, fold in half and glue. When you come to your last pair to adhere, slip in your tootsie pop. I then measured the "stick" or "stem" and cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock and glued this around the stem. I cut two punched leaves from the new leaf punch and adhered onto the stem. You could run these through an embossing folder or stamp some great images but I didn't really feel the necessity because basically a child is just going to rip this open. LOL

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

#249

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.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #237-Window Box Thinlits Lantern

#237

Hi Stampers,

I really like the patriotic colors in the above photo. In staying with the theme, I chose to make a paper lantern out of the window box thinlits. The first one I made I also cut Whisper White pieces to go on the lantern and it made it a little heavy. It would be great to be hung up but not sitting on a table.

This is the second one and I only made one window box "frame" for the bottom. I also didn't attach a second layer of cardstock. You could attach string to the top to hang it or just use as a table decoration.

These are the cute little battery operated tealights I found at Dollar Tree.
