Kylie's Demonstrator Training Program Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to this month's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop.  It's Fall still even with the temperature that has dropped to a cool Winter chill.  But sometimes it happens that it starts getting colder during Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving in the States is only three weeks away, and we all have a lot to be thankful for.  During this time of the year in the US we celebrate Thanksgiving a time to be thankful for everything in your life.  Over the last year there has been a lot of ups and downs good and bad that have happened.  I am thankful for so much during this season of thanks.  I am thankful for the time that my Baby brother had to stay with us during his recovery before his untimely passing, I am thankful for my supportive customers and friends.  I am thankful for being part of this training program again this year.  I am thankful for so many things so with all that in mind I wanted to create a card to represent these and all the other things I am Thankful for this season.  Let's have a look at my card. 

Basically for my card I used scraps of the Come Together Designer Series Paper and puzzle pieced these scraps into a design that was pleasing to the eye.  I like to refer to this as the Puzzle Piecing or Patchwork technique.  This is a fun way to create especially if you have hit a brick wall in the creative process.  By working in this technique you free up your mind to get past the blocks that could be keeping you from creating.  Once I had the design figured out I added mats to the designer series paper.  Some of the layers were popped up on dimensionals, some where just glued down using liquid glue.   After stamping the pumpkins I used my Wink of Stella to create a watercolor look on the pumpkins.  I cut them out using the matching dies, and added them to my card.
