Thanksgiving Inspirations...

It's time for our first group post over at Papertrey Ink.  We have lots of fun fall and thanksgiving inspiration up today.  The first card I have today used the new Color Pop: Autumn Mini Kit and dies....

I used the dies to create the popped up sentiment and then also used the dies to cut out those gorgeous leaves and acorns from the coordinating pattern paper.

This next card showcases the new Splits: Giving Thanks...

I used the Cover Plate: Horizontal Stripes in the background and then added in the die cut image to the front of the card.  I heat embossed the image and did a little watercoloring to color in each little leaf.

The last project I have is perfect for a hostess.  This set called Give Thanks, has sentiments included perfect for hostess gifts.

I used PTI's Wine Tag die to create this kraft thank you.  I added some masked color along the bottom and the sentiments in white.  I popped up the acorns from the set with foam tape.

I aslo die cut some leaves and added them to the wine bottle with some twine ribbon.
