Good morning everyone! It's time for another fun challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! This week we are being challenged with a sketch. Take a look!
I knew that I wanted to do a Thanksgiving card so here is what I came up with:
I did a search to see if I could find a tutorial for making a turkey from punches. I found one from Angie Kennedy Juda who said she got it from one of our Stampin' Success magazines (it was from a while ago). So I followed her instructions and this is what evolved! Isn't he the cutest? I was really happy with how he turned out. I did add the little "wobble" but it looks more like a mustache. I won't go into details about how I made the turkey but you can do a search and find the video (and many others) on how to make him. I took pieces of More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Old Olive and sponged them then mounted them to a piece of Early Espresso and ran it through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder. This is mounted onto a card base of Confetti Cream. The turkey is mounted a 3" circle of River Rock that was sponged then glued to the card. I added a strip of Confetti Cream with "Happy Thanksgiving" stamped in Early Espresso and a gold brad attached. This is glued onto the card. There you have it!
Be sure to visit the Create with Connie and Mary site to find even more inspiration from the rest of the team. Then create your own project using the sketch provided! Remember that we are Stampin' Up! only! I can't wait to see what you do! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
