DT Tips: Golden Leaf Placecards...

Today I have a little place card idea for you that you can replicate for your Thanksgiving table decor! These are quick, easy and so pretty and elegant. I've used Papertrey Ink's Enclosed: Leaf dies.

All of the leaves and veins were cut out of White Tag Stock, which is a really thick cardstock by Papertrey Ink, perfect for tags, so they don't bend and are nice and sturdy. Then I glued the veins onto the leaves and painted the entire thing with Liquid Leaf in gold by Plaid. It dries VERY quickly, so make sure you rinse your brush often...or just use a cheap foam brush that you can toss when you are done. The foam brush works great for dabbing the paint into all of the crevices.
To finish off the leaves, I cut the Tremendous Tags from Smokey Shadow cardstock and stamped them with Autumn Pumpkins sentiments and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. You could write your guests' names instead on these if you'd like, then tie them onto the gold leaf stems!

The ribbon I used to tie the little tags onto the leaves is a piece of seam binding from Zipperstop.com in Chalk White. When wet, it crinkles nicely!

The floral pick with the white pumpkin and other white/gold pumpkins in my photos were found at Walmart. Here is another leaf you can make with the Enclosed: Leaf dies with the basic leaf in the background and the grateful outline piece over the top. I adhered the leaf layers, then painted it with the gold gilding like the previous samples.

Thanksgiving is all about food, friends, and family...and what better way to make your guests feel welcome than a wonderful and pretty note to welcome them to the table. You could also frame these and use them for fall decor! I hope you enjoyed this post today! Have a great weekend!

Release day...

Today is release day at Papertrey Ink, and that means all of the new products we have been previewing this week will be available at 10pm EST tonight! I have a few more things to show you. First up is Fancy Pants Holiday. I used the scroll frame from this set and trimmed it apart to frame the sentiment here.



Next are the Gifts of the Season stamps and dies on a little gift tag...
This cute frame is made with the new Splits: Merry & Bright stamps and dies. It's layered over a Fancy Flake and Chicken Scratch Gingham paper in lavender.

Tinsel was wrapped around the frame for a bit of sparkle, and I used Copics to color in around the green stamping.

Last is Dress Up Dolls: Elves and Elf Sentiments.
