Thanksgiving Hostess Gift

It is Day 3 of October's MFTeaser!! And today it is all about FIVE new Pure Innocence Stamp Sets!! Stop by Kim's blog at 11:00 am EST for the list of designers sharing projects today.

My sister-in-law usually hosts Thanksgiving for my husband's side of the family and this year I will have my hostess gift ready to go ahead of time! I am using the new stamp set, Little Pumpkin for my project.
I used the new Die-namic die Polka Dot Greeting die and stamp set for my center sentiment.

I used one of the polka dot stamps and used a sentiment from the Little Pumpkin stamp set in the middle. I used a Thanksgiving graphic I had in my stash, and added some stitching, pearls, and ribbon.
On the inside I stamped the outline of Little Pumkin and left room for a thank you note.

I had purchased a Pumpkin Spiced Jar Candle at Michael's when they were on sale, along with a fall candle holder. My image is colored with Copics and her dress is paper pieced and I stamped another sentiment from the set. Then I sewed her to my background paper, add lace to the top edge, and adhered the image to the candle jar.

I hope you will join us at the release party on Wednesday night at 8:00 EST.

Be sure to leave comments on the designers blog today. Kim is giving away stamps each day of teasers.
