Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Thanksgiving Blessings Swap

   It has been quite some time since I hosted an ATC swap. I thought that Thanksgiving would be a great theme for a swap. I thought that Thanksgiving Blessings would make it even broader. That way it could be so many things to so many people.

My Thanksgiving Blessings ATC

   This card started with an image that I received in the mail from an advertizement. I thought it was perfect so I saved it until the time was right to use it. Using my sticker maker I ran a piece of scrapbook paper through it and then pressed a piece of lace over the top of the scrapbook paper. I then trimmed it with platinum acrylic paint. While that was drying I stamped three images of the silverware onto white card stock and cut them out and glued one on top of the other layering them. I then stamped and heat embossed one set of silverware using silver embossing powder. I cut them out and glued them on top of the other layers. I then cut out a white circle to use as the plate. I dry embossed the edge to give it a rim like a plate would have. Now all of my pieces were done. I glued down the picture of Thanksgiving dinner. I laid the other parts in place and glued them down.

   This time of year people start getting ready for winter and the holidays. So there aren't as many in this swap as usual but...all of these artists really put their selves out there. They are all so beautiful. Thanks you ladies for joining this swap.
