InStyle Stamps Blog Hop



Yay!  It’s time for another Instyle Stamps Blog Hop  AND time to start thinking about Thanksgiving!   

Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday …  LOTS of food & friends AND NO gifts required!   We always have LOTS of guests for Thanksgiving dinner – the more the merrier.   I buy a HUGE turkey and make all the trimmings, especially desserts ~ my favorite!

I’m sure you all have heard of, or experienced the infamous “kids” table!  I usually try to make some type of fun goodies for those destined for this table.   This year, InStyle Stamps made my job a little easier!   

Meet William and Virgina!  The newest ISS images … Mr. & Mrs. Pilgrim!   






I thought it would be fun to use these adorable pilgrim images as placecards for the kids’ table for Thanksgiving!  

Each image was colored with Copics, cut out and attached to my pre-made placecard.   The placecards are made with Bo Bunny burnt orange dot dp for the background, with a piece of Reminisce Turkey Trot dp.  The name tags are cut out with Spellbinders Nestability Labels Six dies (my new favorite dies!!) and have been highlighted with Distress inks in vintage photo and dried marigold.  I also added some self-adhesive “nail heads” to the name tag.  

And,  now on to all the details of this month’s Blog Hop ~
