The Cutest Turkey Table Treat

Do you need something cute for your Thanksgiving dinner table?  This little guy is going to be the perfect solution.  Use him at each place setting on the table.  If you need to assign seats then put a name where I stamped the “Happy Thanksgiving”.

This was a really fun project that my Stamper’s club got to make this month at our meeting.  And today I shared it on my weekly FB Live.  I’ll be uploading it to Youtube as well – and then adding that link here too. 

Make these in a variety of patterns from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series paper.  The paper is part of the sale this month so grab a pack now.  You can get two turkey’s from each sheet of the 6×6 paper.  Clip them on to a fork, or a napkin to dress up each place setting for Thanksgiving.  If you need assigned seats – then write a name on the banner instead of stamping the Happy Thanksgiving.

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop Hello Pumpkin

Hello my friends.  It’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. This month our kit is – Hello Pumpkin – a fun kit for all things fall!

This kit makes adorable treat holders that can be decorated for any fall occasion – Halloween, Thanksgiving, or just fall colors. There a ton of die cut pieces to mix and match.  The cracker box style treats are double sided so you can choose to show the plaid or the striped side.  I’m planning to make mine to use at Thanksgiving this year – I’ll put one on every spot at the table – fill them with something yummy – maybe caramels! Yum!

With my left over pieces I decided to make some fun fall note cards.  The great thing about the Note Cards & Envelopes – is that they are quick because your card base is cut and scored.  All you have to do is decorate the front and add your note on the inside. 

Fall Note Cards – Cornucopia

The first thing I thought of was to take the witch hat and turn it into a cornucopia. To do that, flip it over and add lines to the back with a Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends.  Use both the dark and light blends and leave some open spots so it looks like a basket or straw and not solid.  To give it some texture I ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folder.  To give it more of a cone look I trimmed off part of the brim.  

I thought the scalloped edge of the cracker box would be a fun edge on my note card.  To do that trim off 1/4″ from the front of the note card.  Trim one end off the cracker box.  Then glue that to the front lining the bottom edge up with the base of the card back.  Stamp Give Thanks.  Add flowers, leaves, curly bits, and a little bow to complete the look.

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends
  • Paper Snips
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing folder
  • Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker

 

Fall Note Cards – Hello Tiles

The die cut tile pieces were pretty all on their own just added to the front of a note card.  Stamp Hello across a strip of Whisper White card stock to add over the front.  I actually cut the stamp apart so I could just use the Hello.  When I want to use the full phrase I’ll just mount both pieces on the block together again. The coordinating colors of flowers were from the kit.  This turned out to be such a clean and simple look.

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes, Whisper White card stock
  • Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker

 

Fall Note Cards – Hello Pumpkin

Trim down the center panel of the cracker box and use it as a layer on a card like I did for this third idea.  It has the scored lines to give it just a little extra interest.  This card is quick and easy to finish with the pumpkin element and a banner from the kit.

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes

I hope you like this trio of note cards.  Adding a pack of Whisper White Note cards & envelopes makes it easy to get creative with the left over elements and pieces from your monthly kit. Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop World’s Greatest

Are you ready for some alternate ideas with the August Paper Pumpkin Kit?   It’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. This month our kit is – World’s Greatest.  A kit with some fun cards to celebrate some everyday hero’s in our lives like teachers, coaches, kids and our friends. 

This kit makes 3 different cards with fun matching envelopes – that’s always one of my favorites!  One card style is a shaker card. 

I decided to mix up the pieces and cut up the card bases for the two cards that were not the shaker card.  By cutting each of those card bases into 4 pieces I can create 8 cards instead of just 2.  Here are two new cards that I made.

Blue card

For this card I wanted a little bit more of a feminine feel to it. Cutting up the blue card base into four pieces allows me to make 4 new cards.  Each piece is 2-3/4 x 4″.  I added Thick White Whisper White card stock for a new card base.  You’ll also want some more medium sized envelopes.  The yellow water-colored rectangle was also cut in half and used on this card. I trimmed down one of the white rectangles to fit the words.  For the little touch of ribbon use paper snips to cut a 3-1/2″ piece into small strips and then tie in a knot.

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Thick Whisper White
  • Whisper White envelopes
  • Paper Snips

Green card

For this second card I used the green card base and also cut it into 4 pieces.  Trim one of the white rectangles to be 3/4″ wide and then I stamped the medal ribbon image twice so the end of it met in the middle – that part will be covered up.  Use one of the vellum leaf pieces and cut it into two so one part can go on each side.  To add a bit of contrast I did pull out a piece of Bumblebee card stock to layer behind that argyle piece.

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Thick Whisper White, Bumble Bee
  • Whisper White envelopes
  • Paper Snips

I hope you liked this alternate idea for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit. Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.

Christmas Card Stamp a Stack: In The Pines

It’s time to get started on Christmas Cards (if you haven’t already).  The time consuming part is the design, cutting and prepping. This class has that part done for you. You will complete the fun part – the stamping, assembling, and writing notes and sending to family and friends. My plan is to offer several of these classes between now and December.  And the best part – we will do this with safe social distancing. This is an at home class and available for porch pickup or in the mail.

Christmas Card Stamp A Stack – In the Pines

This first Stamp a Stack class will feature the In The Pines stamp set on page 43 for the Aug-Dec Mini Catalog.  If you remember my 12 cards of Christmas challenge – this is going to be card 4 & 5. I’ve already completed one set of 12 and will complete another set as part of this class. 

Class supplies will include all the cut card stock, paper, envelopes, ribbon, and die cut, and embossed pieces. You will supply your own stamps, ink and adhesive. A written tutorial with photos will be emailed to you and a link to a video showing you how to make the card. Each class kit will include supplies to make 12 of the same card. I will also schedule a zoom for us to gather virtually to make our cards together. Date to be determined after everything is mailed.

Options:

  • Christmas Card Stamp a Stack: $25 (porch pick up price)
  • #1 Add On for mailing to you: $8 (mailed to your house)
  • #2 Add On In The Pines stamp set: $21
