Thanksgiving: Dressing the Bird and the Table

Happy KSS Monday!

Getting ready for Thanksgiving?

I have a fun (and quick) stamping idea for dressing up the holiday table, using

Turkey Napkin Rings stamping with 3 Step Turkey Trot.

You say you are feeding an army?

No worries, my next post will show you how to multi-step an entire gang (or rafter) of turkeys!

(update:  Multi Step Stamping 105 Tutorial – Digital Die Cutting & Mass Production)

The napkin ring is a simple  1-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ strip of cardstock with tabs at the end to interlock (see below for link for a pdf template). A few wraps around with raffia ribbon and tie a knot. Fray and crumple the ends and position off to one side. Adhere turkey with favorite strong adhesive (I used Score-Tape). – Done!

I stumbled across this 2 great sites for different napkin folds: Napkin FoldingGuide.com & 28 Creative Napkin Folding

With setting a decorative Thanksgiving table in mind, I stamped this 100% linen hot roll cover with Multi Step Big Leaves & Palette Inks.

After I pre-washed, air-dried and ironed the fabric, I placed the corner I was going to stamp, on top of a piece of chipboard/cardboard. The chipboard/cardboard absorbs any excess ink that soaks through the linen to the back and helps to prevent the ink from bleeding.

I did not bother to mask the overlapping leaves. I stamp the lightest leaf ( yellow) first and the darkest left (red) last. That way it wouldn’t show that I overlapped the images. 🙂

Overall, this project was quick and took about 15-20 mins. to stamp. After the ink completely dries, heat set both sides with a hot iron.  For more information about stamping on fabric, please see these two past posts – post 1 & post 2.

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Thanksgiving Day is wonderful & yummy!

Please check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you too!

Peter, Peter pumpkin eater?

Happy KSS Monday!!!

I will admit, I am happy how this pumpkin box turned out,  but it didn’t start out to be a box.

It all started with one pumpkin… and grew and grew! LOL! This box took on a life of its own. When I had finished stamping my grove of pumpkins… well, it seemed that the finished image was a bit too big for a card… hmmm?

Pumpkin-Box

As I scanned my craft room, searching (for what?… I had no clue!), I spotted an old box that was screaming out, “Alter ME!”  … so I did.

The box would need to be covered, but paper would be too thick to allow the box to still shut properly. How about painting it? Yup, this would be a good time to crack open a bottle of Ranger’s Distress Crackle Paint in Antique Linen color. I have been itching to try this paint but wasn’t sure on what.

Pumpkin-Box-CornerBefore I applied the crackle paint, I painted the box with a dark, contrasting color of paint. I used Mushroom Acrylic Paint from Folk Art. After the paint was completely dry (the heat gun sped up the process), I covered the painted box completely with the crackle paint. I just love the finished results form this paint with all the different size cracks. The thicker the paint, the bigger the cracks. I let this coat of paint dry overnight. Then it was just a matter of matting my stamped image, and the box was done. (Well, except for the bottom of the box! LOL!)

So, this is my story of a box that started out as one little pumpkin!  Happy Monday!

Please take a peek at what the rest of the KS Crew has cooked up for you today!
