Hey Friends! It’s Ek, and today I am totally embracing all things fall. I am not gonna lie, my favorite two holidays to craft for are Halloween and Christmas, but Thanksgiving is hands down my actual most favorite calendar holiday. The idea of stoping and joining hands with the people you love and giving thanks for all that you have is something that each year always makes my heart warm. But crafting for this holiday has not always been easy. However, with the release of Joset’s die collection this fall, creating for my favorite holiday has gotten so much easier. Today I am playing with the Turkey die set, and falling right into autumn.
Step One: Die set the Turkey die set from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Using Distress Ink, blend color onto the Turkey body parts. I used Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo.
Step Three: Blend ink over the leaves and the rest of the Turkey accessories. I used Black Soot, Barn Door, Crackling Campfire, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint.
Step Four: Using a liquid adhesive, such as Kids Choice Glue, adhere the Turkey pieces together.
Step Five: Using a black and white gel pen, fill in the eyes and add highlights.
Step Six: Die cut a background out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Splatter Distress Ink in the colors of the leaves onto the background die cut. Using a piece of printed paper, such as one found in the Worn Wood paper collection, die cut it with the Stitched Rounded Square die set. Adhere both the background and the square die cut to a 6×6 inch card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Seven: Using a liquid adhesive, such as Kids Choice Glue, adhere the Turkey to the card frame.
Step Eight: Adhere the leaves around the Turkey with a liquid adhesive. Add a sentiment to the card by stamping fall themed sentiment from the Autumn Words stamp set. Finally add some Craft Drops to the card by adding fall colored Drops in Pearl Olive, Pearl Rose, and Metallic Gold.
I am so happy to have some crafting supplies that coordinate with Thanksgiving.
