I dusted off my Watercolor Pencils and played with them today!

I’ve been a little under the weather, but have STILL been creating in my craft room! Here’s my video today, to help you create a fun Thanksgiving treat for your guests!

Thanksgiving Card – Labels to Love

My computer has been on the blink for 5 days now!!! I’m falling so far behind! It’s in the shop, hopefully next week I will have it back.

Here’s a simple Thanksgiving card for you!

To make the two-toned leaves,

  • Ink up the solid leaf stamp from the Colorful Seasons stamp set with Crushed Curry ink.
  • Take a sponge dauber and literally ink up just the edges of that same stamp with Pumpkin Pie ink, and then stamp on to Very Vanilla scrap piece of cardstock.
  • Ink up the same solid leaf stamp again with Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Take a sponge dauber and literally ink up just the edges of that same stamp with Cherry Cobbler ink, and stamp on to Very Vanilla scrap piece of cardstock.

You can hardly see it but there is a 1 3/4″ circle in Crumb Cake cardstock positioned under the pie to simulate the pie plate. ENJOY!

Thanksgiving Card

Here is a Thanksgiving card that we made at Stamp Club this month! I saw the turkey made out of the bird punch a year ago on Lynn Pratt’s blog HERE. I am amazed at her creativity!!! I was done with my Thanksgiving classes when I saw this last year, so I have waited all year to make this! Here’s my version:
Stamp Set: Grateful Greetings (inside sentiment is the Thanksgiving saying from that set)
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Soft Suede
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Bird Punch (see below), Owl Punch, Baker’s Twine, Dimensionals, 2 3/8″ Scallop Punch, Modern Label Punch, 1 3/8″ Square Punch, Striped Embossing Folder (Very Vanilla is done with this, it’s hard to see here), 5/8″ Early Espresso Grosgrain Ribbon

Here is a photo of how the bird is punched. Once you are done punching it out, ink the edges with Soft Suede. The leg bone of the turkey is the foot on the Owl Punch.

weSTAMP Get Together!

This month for our weSTAMP get together we brought in a guest speaker, Danielle Wurth! Danielle is a professional organizer and has even written a book! You can find her website HERE.

I noticed many of our weSTAMPERS voiced the same problem I have, and that was TRYING TO KEEP our stamping areas in order, and NOT look like a tornado had just ripped through it. Granted, the space DOES get messy when we are creating, but if it tends to stay like that, then we need help! Danielle shared with us many tips to keeping our crafting areas more organized and efficient, WITHOUT having to purchase more containers or furniture! What a BLESSING she was to our group! She even shared tips for other areas in our house that could use some work, too!

We had such a wonderful evening with Danielle, and I’m so thankful to her for coming to speak to our weSTAMPERS!

This is Danielle!

We also had our swap! The theme was a Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving card or 3-D item.

Maggie’s swap: (There is candy and a battery operated flickering light inside the luminary. She stamped on a window sheet in the hole.)

Kathy’s swap:

Linda B’s swap:

Eileen’s swap: (Tea holder, and below you can see it opened up.)

Melissa’s swap:

Terri’s swap: (This is the house from the Wizard of Oz. House turns on a brad. Each time you turn the house a bit, it reveals a different hidden sign on the floor. CLEVER!)

Karen K’s swap: (Mummy, and she had them all contained in a really cute handmade coffin!)

Linda R’s swap:

Stephanie’s swap:


Michelle’s swap: (Shaving cream technique used for the background, COOL!)


Glenda’s swap: (Background made using a dryer sheet! Tutorial can be found HERE.

Priscilla’s swap:

Dawn’s swap:

Patti’s swap:

Lorri’s swap: (Bookmarks! Idea came from Becky Roberts, who shared these at a recent Regional Conference AND it was also in Stampin’ Success magazine for Stampin’ Up demonstrators this month!) You can also find these in her 12 Days of Christmas 2010 tutorial found HERE.)

Last but not least, this adorable door prize was made by Maggie (She also made the luminary swap) and won by lucky Stephanie (pictured below). The pumpkin has a battery operated flickering tea light inside!

I hope you enjoyed the post today!
