Harvest Blessing Mini Lantern

Harvest Blessing Mini Lantern

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! That means it’s time for another challenge at PDE Linky Party. The challenge this week is Anything But a Card! I got a new die set designed by Lori Whitlock for Sizzix and wanted to use it for my project this week. It’s a really cute 3D mini lantern. Here’s my project.


I die cut the lantern with some brown cardstock and then used another new die set I had from Lawn Fawn to cut the leaves. I used the Stampin Up Acorn punch for the little acorn and then added some May Arts twine. I used the CardzTv stamp set Thankful for Fall for the sentiment across the front.


I think that’s my new favorite die set for leaves. The little lantern will fit a small battery operated tea light through the top. I used some mini brads to attach the little handle.


That my project for this weeks challenge. I hope you will decide to play along! Here’s a quick photo of the die and stamp sets that I used in my project.

Have a great weekend!

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today is my day to post on the Miss Kate Blog. Here’s the project I created.

so very thankful box

My little box will hold three small cards with envelopes. My cards measure 3-1/2 x 3-1/2. I used my fabulous envelope punch board to create the envelopes.

I used solid kraft cardstock to create the box then matted it with some really cute papers from the 6×6 paper pad DIY Shop by American Crafts. I picked this up at Hobby Lobby on sale of course!

Hello everyone! Today I have a card to share with you. I created this card using the Create A Critter 2 Cartridge.

Happy Harvest Card 1

My kraft colored card base measures 5×5. The dark brown mat measures 4-3/4 x 4-3/4 inches. I layered a piece of acorn paper from the Authentique Thankful Collection on top of the brown. The acorn paper measures 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inches.

I then added another brown mat which is 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches. Next is another piece of plaid paper from the Authentique Thankful collection. It measures 3×3.

Happy Harvest Card 3

I cut my cute little Indian bear at 3 inches. I added some black gems for the bears’ nose and eyes to make them sparkle. I added four little acrylic maple leaves to each corner and stamped my sentiment, “Happy Harvest” in the bottom right corner.

Happy Harvest Card 2

The sentiment is from the “Thankful For You” stamp set by CardzTv.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Today I have a quick little card to share with you. The card base measures 4×4. The design paper on the front measures 3-1/2 x 3-1/2 and is from the Authentique Thankful Collection.

Give Thanks Turkey Card 1

The cute little turkey on the front is created out of ribbon. I learned how to make this from one of the design team members at my local scrapbook store. Don’t you just love the google eyes?

Give Thanks Turkey Card 2

I stamped the sentiment on cream Cardstock and punched it out and layered it onto another larger circle using dimensional adhesive.

That’s it. I hope you like it!
