A Thanksgiving Welcome
The 3D Luminary can be a tricky die to play with. But once you get folding the end result is stunning. I couldn't imagine not having this die in my collection.
I have to say the Layered Leaf die is at the top of my list for all time favorite dies. This die comes with a texture fade folder really making this cut fantastic. I cut with water color paper, inked with distress inks peeled paint, mustard seed and rusty hinge. Then I blended the inks with my water color pen.
I cut the 3D Luminary with regular cream card stock and again I cut with Glassine. I glued the glassine to the card stock and stamped the script stamp from the Apothecary set in Black Archival.
I have a bunch of tattered pinecone flowers pre-made and stored in a jar. I inked up the binding ribbon with peeled paint and rusty hinge stain. Then made a big messy bow and hot glued the flower into place.
This is my pumpkin tucked into some Spanish moss. But I made it. In the spring the $1 Store had these purple flowers that look like little rustic pumpkins. I inked them up with rusty hinge distress paint and now they look like pumpkins.
For the cracked glass I cut pieces of clear packaging, stamped my mini blue prints with the black archival. To get the crackle to work you brush a thin layer of modge podge glue, dry then layer the clear rock candy crackle paint. Once dry ink with the honeycomb alcohol ink.
How adorable would these be as place settings. You could write the guests name on the leaf!
These Luminary's are stunning. Please be sure to use a battery operated tea light.
