Creation Tips: (This is a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2) card.
- I knew from the start, that I wanted to make the vegetables look like they were sitting on a table. So, when I stamped the corn/pottery, I made sure I had enough blank space to place the pumpkins and have "wall space".
- I stamped the corn and jug (one stamp) in Timberland StazOn and then I took my Pacific Point Blue Marker and on the stamp, I went back over the design on the pottery.
- I used the Basic Grey Stampin' Up marker and a blender pen to provide shadowing on the pottery.
- I used Old Olive and Garden Green along with some Soft Suede on the husk. I used So Saffron and Daffodil Delight on the corn. I left some blank areas to make it look like the white kernels.
-I then stamped the pumpkins colored them with Peach Parfait, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight and some Pumpkin Pie. I cut out the pumpkins.
- I cut out DSP about two inches deep for my tablecloth.
- With scissors, I had to cut out the bottom of the corn and up the sides, so that it would "sit" level on the tablecloth. I then glued the corn/pottery and "walls" to the tablecloth. I then glued the pumpkins next to the corn. You can trim the sides and top to make the size card that you would like.
- The "Give Thanks" stamp, I hope looks like it may be a cross stitch piece in a frame. I hope!! This was actually a mistake that I think turned out pretty good. I stamped the Give Thanks as just a sentiment and I didn't like the placement or the way it looked. I thought of using the Sizzix labels die to make the frame and I that's when I thought it looked like a frame on a wall! I think it turned out pretty good! What do you think???
Here is the recipe:
