Giving Thanks

I definitely have some fun project to share with you this month.  These projects venture in a different direction than what I normally do and they really are great for the Season of Giving Thanks!  The first project is a Clean and Simple Card featuring the For All Things Stamp Set from the Holiday Catalog.  The next 2 projects go together as a Table Setting featuring a Table Placard and Napkin Ring.  

Project #1 – Give Thanks Card


Give Thanks For All Things Handmade Card by Pam Staples. #stampinup #forallthings #pinworthy #greetingcard

The card base starts with Natural White Cardstock layered with Early Esspresso and a second layer of Natural White Cardstock which is stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink.  Next, I attached a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon then attached the top layer stamped with the images from the For All Things Stamp Set.  For the finishing touches I added the Ribbon Bow with the Very Vintage Designer Button and Linen Thread along with the Give Thanks Banner.  The GIve Thanks is stamped using the And Many More Stamp Set.

If you are wondering, I created the Cherry Cobbler bow by just wrapping it around my fingers then taking the Linen Thread and tying it around the Seam Binding.  To help finish off the look, I add the button which helps hold it together nice and tight.  To attach this type of bow, I like to use the Glue Dots or the Tombow Multi Liquid Glue.  Here is a close-up angled view for a different perspective on the bow.


Project #2 – Give Thanks Place Setting Placard


1411-PWH v008


This second project is actually very simple and so quick to make!  I cut out the leaves using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  The background Crushed Curry Maple Leaf was then embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impression embossing folder.  The folded placard is also stamped using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with Cherry Cobbler Classic ink.  The cluster of leaves were then accented with the Venetian Crochet Trim, a piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribon and Linen Thread tied together with a Very Vintage Designer Button.  The final touch was adding the two banners – Giving Thanks and the Guests Name which was handwritten using a Project Life marker.


Project #3 – Give Thanks Napkin RIng Holder


Give Thanks Napkin Ring Holder by Pam Staples. #Stampinup #sunnygirlscraps #remarkables


The final project that I'm featuring today is a Napkin Ring Holder that I created using a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock wrapped around part of a toilet paper tube then wrapped again with 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon then wrapped AGAIN with Linen Thread…  Lots of wrapping going on but I just love the look with the layers of texture!  Next, I created the cluster of leaves similar to what I did for the Place Setting Placard.  I also used the Very Vintage Designer Button again tied with a bow using the Linen Thread with a piece of the Venetian Crochet Trim added as an accent.  For the final touch, I added the Give Thanks banner but this time I added the Garden Green layer to the banner.


Here are both the Place Setting Placard with the Napkin Ring holder.  You'll see that they coordinate beautifully together.  I'm certain they'll look beautiful on my table at Thanksgiving even if it is only going to be a very small gathering this year!  My husband and 5 year old will probably not appreciate the extra touches I take to make Thanksgiving Special but I know I'll enjoy the look along with using my Fine China.
