Here is, as promised, a Holiday Catalog Sneak peak. This is a Thanksgiving placecard. I used the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set on page 45 of the new catalog. I also used it’s coordinating Acorn Builder Punch. This stamp set is one of our photopolymer sets and the acorns are in two pieces, several tops and bottoms, that you can mix and match plus some Thanksgiving or Thankful sentiments. The fact that the stamps are photopolymer makes it very easy to match the top to the bottom if you want to just stamp and not punch out the acorns. In the catalog Stampin’ Up! has pictured a Square Pillow Box (another new item in the catalog – one I’m very, very excited about) decorated with Acorns. That would be very cute on your Thanksgiving Table paired with this placecard holder for a little gift for your guests.
The green plaid piece is from the Farmer’s Market DSP. I just love this DSP. There are so many different patterns in the package that can be used for so many different occasions. I used two pieces of Watermelon Wonder (a 2015-17 In-Color) on the placecard and stamped the “Grateful for You” sentiment in this color too. The Wild Wasabi leaves are cut from a retired leaf die. The Acorn tops were stamped with Always Artichoke and Tangerine Tango. I just love these colors together. I’m in Florida and at Thanksgiving we are usually wearing shorts and outside hanging by the grill as we smoke our turkey so these lighter fall colors are just perfect. A couple of pearls finish off the placecard.
Remember, we are only a little over two weeks away from you being able to order from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. You can purchase this stamp set and the Acorn Builder Punch for a 15% discount (item # 140841 $28.00) and lots of other Holiday goodies like Black Glimmer paper for Halloween, Red Foil Paper for Christmas, dies for Christmas Ornaments, oh such fun!
I’m going to make several more of these for my Thanksgiving table this year. I’ll add my guest names to the a banner and attach it with a glue dot. If you like what you see why don’t you go to my on-line store and pick up a few new stamps or inks for you to make something. If you have any questions about what I’ve made or something you are making, drop me a line and I’ll be glad to help. Now go and create something sweet for somebody!
