Thanksgiving decorations...

I got some stamp blocks in the mail yesterday from one of the ladies on TwoPeas, and immediately I thought of my new Thanksgiving Hero Arts clear stamp set I got.








The stamp blocks had the stamps taken off of them already, and I peeled the sticker off of the other side. Then, I painted the stamp blocks (I used Making Memories Nutmeg). I took a green sheet of cardstock, stamped the leaf stamp from the Hero Arts set using VersaMark, and let dry. As it dried, I took a cream piece of cardstock and stamped the other stamps using Color Box Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan. I colored the pumpkin, the leaf, and the turkey, and cut them all out. I then inked the edges of all of them. I trimmed the green cardstock to fit each of the stamp blocks, inked the edges, adhered them using glue dots and a glue stick (I didn't want them to fall off!), and then put the cream cardstock images on using 3D dots. It turned out to be a quick, easy, and cute decoration!

How resourceful of you to re-use the wood blocks. These are terrific decorations.
