The Paper Players Blog Hop - Another MDS Hybrid for Me and Blog Candy
Happy Saturday everyone! If you have been to the Paper Players Blog, you will know we are having a blog hop today! Everyone on the team has created a Fall project! We are linking our projects up on our blogs this week, and some of us have blog candy to share! So be sure to check out each blog. Here is the Blog Hop list...click the names to visit their blogs.
My Project today is a somewhat simple Thanksgiving Decor Item. I get so annoyed with the department stores putting Christmas decorations up before it is even Halloween. They seem to skip Thanksgiving altogether - ACK! I love Thanksgiving. Don't get me wrong I am a Holly Jolly Girl through and through, but THERE IS A HOLIDAY BETWEEN HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS!! OK enough of my ranting.
I decorate my house for Thanksgiving and wanted to make a little something for my entryway . In order to get the scale a bit larger than the stamped image, I turned to my handy, dandy My Digital Studio to give the background a distressed look and to print out the Thanksgiving sentiment. I added a few hand made flowers and some pewter embossed leaves in a simple layout and I have a Thanksgiving decor item for my hall table. Yes Virginia, there is a Thanksgiving:)
I realized my center piece was crooked after I took this picture - I fixed that!
Paper - whisper white, very vanilla, old olive, early express more mustard card stock
Ink - soft suede for distressing, more mustard, early espresso, old olive, cajun craze, bravo burgundy
Stamps - My Digitial Studio - Autumn Spice Digital Kit
Accessories - 1 3/4", 1 3/8" , 1", 3/4" circle punches, scallop border trim punch, glimmer brad, small brads, frame
