Guest Designer - Snip Tuck Design - Day 2

Hi again. This is Cathy at Snip Tuck Design, with my project for Day 2 of my guest designer week. Today is the Tuesday Challenge so I've made something based off the sketch provided.

There is also a twist to this challenge, in that you can paper piece your stamped image to give it a bit of dimension and flair. This was a project of firsts for me. It was the first time that I've ever done a project following a sketch and the first time I paper pieced a stamped image. I am still very new to using image stamps.

I wanted to make something for Thanksgiving, and PKS has the perfect stamp set for just that. I used CB-03 Tanner Turkey for my card.

It's not just a card though. The top folds back and it becomes a place setting name card for your Thanksgiving dinner. The sentiment included in the set, Gobble 'Til Ya Wobble!  was quite appropriate for something that will be sitting on the table with all that yummy food. 

I love how the stamp turned out on suede paper. The turkey stamp was so great to paper piece. I stamped three images in order to get the dimension.

How about another chance to win some blog candy? Peachy Keen has been so generous to let me give away a set of their stamps. For a chance to win the PK-450 Wide Eyed Kids Faces Assortment ($25 value) please leave me a comment here and then head over to www.sniptuckdesign.com and comment on my blog too. I'd also love to have you as a follower, but it's not required to win.

Check back every day this week to see another one of my projects and for another chance to win. One lucky winner will be announced on Saturday. Good luck!
