Gratitude Paper Pumpkin

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have an inspiration challenge.  I’ve been wanting to make these 3D paper strip pumpkins and today I did!  It was so easy!  These would make beautiful decorations for your Thanksgiving table.  Another option would be instead of the stamped sentiment you could do place cards.

I cut 14 strips  1 inch by 6 inch, of DSP then sponged the edges with Soft Suede.  I used my Crop-a-dile to make 1/8″ holes on each end of the strips.  If you use the Crop-a-dile you can make a hole all at one time.  What a time saver!  I then used two brads to make the pumpkin.  I die cut the leaves using the Leaves #2 die then I embossed them with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  I also used Gold Lame Smooch Pearlized Accent ink on the leaves and on the tendrils.  To add more dimension to the leaves I also sponged them with with Soft Suede.  The sentiment is from Day of Gratitude and I used the Decorative Label punch to die cut and frame it.

Voilà! Dinner is served

My friend held a dinner for all our friends to kick-off the holidays.  She had purchased the Voilà stamp set keeping in mind she wanted to use it to create menus and place cards.   For her holiday party I helped her create a menu holder and place cards for her dinner party.  This little guy is so cute and so versatile.   He can hold many different items on the platter in his hand.  He’ll add a touch of whimsy to your next dinner party.  This stamp set will make a great hostess holiday gift.
