Pyramid Thanksgiving Centerpiece - SUO Challenges Challenge #158

The Pyramid Christmas card I made a couple of days ago inspired this Thanksgiving centerpiece.  My intent is to use it to decorate my craft table Thanksgiving Weekend.
Instead of using  4 by 4" pieces of cardstock, I used 8 by 8" pieces, and ended up with a centerpiece that was 8" tall.



Four pieces of 8 by 8" pieces of Kraft cardstock were  used to create the base of this pyramid centerpiece.  Irresistibly Yours DSP (retired) , sponged with Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Suede was adhered to the Kraft Cardstock.

The Pyramid centerpiece was kept closed with a large brad at the back.

Earlier in the day I had made fall leaves using the Leaf thinlets and a watercolored background. Some leaves were also die cut using the Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper. These leaves were used to decorate this centerpiece.

First I die cut a large Whisper White Label, matted with Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper .This was distressed using the Timeless Texture stamp set. A cluster of leaves and an acorn were adhered to the top left.





At the bottom I arranged some pumpkins, and more leaves.

The word "Thanks" was die cut from Hello You Thinlets in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.  The two were adhered off setting each other.



Supplies Used: 
Stamps:Acorny Thank you, Gorgeous Grunge, Fall Fest (retired)
Inks: Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso
Papers:Kraft Cardstock, Irresistibly Yours DSP (retired), Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Accessories: Hello You thinlets, Leaf Thinlets, Fall Fest thinlets, dimensionals, glue dots, Acorn builder punch, Bow Builder Punch. Labels Thinlets

Cable Knit Sweater Card

At my class last Wednesday my students could not keep their eyes off the Cable Knit Sweater card that I had made earlier in the day.
I used the video tutorial by Tami White here to help me make the sweater.
Then, at the team meeting, I showed everyone how to make the sweater card using the Cable Knit embossing folder and the metal rimmed pearls. And   the sweater will be made at the next class as well.
