Thanksgiving decorations

Hi there...happy Monday to you!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  I sure am.  It should be a wonderful time with lots of great company and yummy food.

I thought it would be fun to create some decorations for Thanksgiving, so I picked up a new Lifestyle Crafts die set I just bought recently and created a fun center piece sort or just decoration, period.  I really loved playing with the Pumpkins Dies.  I cut out three of the same dies in the same size and glued them together by the sides, to create a 3D element.  What you can do with these is that you can use them with candles, as you can put a candle in the middle of them.  I think that will be super fun!


The papers I used on my larger pumpkin are by Authentique Enchanted paper line...perfect for my pumpkin.  I also added a pretty Petaloo Vintage Thanksgiving Dazzlers, which I adore.  My sentiment is by Justrite Papercrafts called Autumn Words....another perfection for these pumpkins.  I also used a couple of other Lifestyle Crafts dies, the Feathers Dies and my pretty border is Pettite Petals Die.


For my small pumpkin I used Diecuts with the View cardstock I happened to have on hand and it was perfect as it has a white core in the middle, so I embossed it using Lifestyle Crafts Floral Embossing folder, than sanded it off to show off the beauty of the design.  I took the same steps to create my 3D pumpkin as I did for the large on.  Once it was put together, I stamped some leaves using the JustRite Papercrafts Autumn Words stamps and stamped my sentiment on a strip of paper and added all that to my pumpkin.  Cute, right????
