Thanksgiving Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's blog hop. I hope you have been enjoying all the inspiration so far and that you've made it hear from Tina Wardell's site.  Even better, there is so much more if you follow along to all the stops! Plus there is a chance to win some prizes.

I am hosting Thanksgiving for the first time at my house this year - and I am bit nervous.  While I love to cook and bake - I have never made a turkey! Thankfully my mom said she would make the turkey and I can just worry about everything else.. so any suggestions for a newbie will be welcomed! 

But enough about food - let me show you my entry in this month's hop.  I don't know about you but I love the Gather Together bundle - especially the dies and the designer series paper! 

Using the DSP wood grain paper as the background, stamp your sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set. Next, mount 4 squares - 1 3/4" x 1 3/4" on dimensionals (I love the new black dimensionals too!) Cut 4 leaves from 4 different colors of cardstock - Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzaz and Merry Merlot with the coordinating leaf die.  

A special trick is to place the die on the Versamark ink pad and then cut out the leaves.  It adds additional dimension and shadow to the leaves - and you can really see how on the detail photo.

Mount the leaves with your favorite adhesive the Early Espresso squares and add a few gems from the Holiday Rhinestones pack,

Tie a simple bow with the Cajun Craze twine from the Come to Gather Ribbon combo pack and you are all done!

Usando el papel de grano de madera DSP como fondo, estampe el sentimiento del conjunto de sellos Gather Together. A continuación, monte 4 cuadrados - 1 3/4 "x 1 3/4" en stampin dimensionals (me encantan las nuevas dimensionals negras también!) Corte 4 hojas de 4 diferentes colores de cartulina – Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, Pear Pizzaz y Merry Merlot con el die que coordina.

Un truco especial es colocar el troquel en la tinta de Versamark y luego cortar las hojas.  Añade dimensión y sombra adicionales a las hojas - y realmente se puede ver cómo en la foto de detalle. Monte las hojas con su adhesivo favorito en los cuadrados Early Espresso y agregue algunas gemas del paquete Holiday Rhinestones. ¡Ata un lazo sencillo con el cordel Cajun Craze del paquete combinado Come to Gather Ribbon y ya está!
