Get that “Pin It” button ready! We have some AH-mazing Thanksgiving/Fall inspired table decor for you today featuring our Tim Holtz Shattered cardstock.
First up Designer Ava Gavloski created this amazing tablescape. How cool will this look on your Thanksgiving Day Table?
Autumn is a bouquet of colors which truly is magical to watch as you stroll down the country side roads and city parks. The fresh cool air of autumn brings memories to warm everyone’s heart. Designing with the Core’dinations Tim Holtz Shattered collection during this sunny day of Autumn has set the ambiance for a thankful Thanksgiving.
Below you will see all the leaves that I distressed.
a) This line you see the green leaves cut out straight up from the paper. B) this side presents the harvest orange, crumbled and sanded leaves green leaves were made by first crumbling the cardstock, sanding and then die cutting the leaves out. C) this line of leaves shows the differences from inked and die cut to crumbled and sanded before die cutting the leaves. D) this sample is taking the cherry bright cardstock , crumbled, sanded before die cutting.
And some close ups:
Look at all that gorgeous Shattered cardstock!
And one more of the distressed, crumpled leaves:
Tim Holtz Shattered Collection Kraft Core, Sand It Set, Helmar, 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, Ranger Distress Ink, Ripe Persimmon , Procraft cuttlebug, Leaves die 37-1214, Thrift store: candle, tray and candle holder
Next a Fall themed topiary from Designer Shaunte Wadley! The large flower is just a scalloped shape piece of cardstock (you can use a die for this or a cutting machine) and then scored and folded. For a similar project that I did for Christmas check out Debbie’s Dares blog for more!
These are pretty easy to make. Just take 4 circles and cut off the bottoms to make a straight line (this is how they will stand up on their own). Scor down the middle and fold. Then adhere them back to back around a stick (I use kabob skewers that I cut down) to make the little pumpkings. Ink the edges so they really pop.
It is no surprise here that we love our Authentique papers! Today Jennifer Edwardson has whipped up some amazing cards for your inspiration. See what you can do with some David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system pieces and some gorgeous patterned paper? You can whip up TONS of cards is a short amount of time because all of the cardbases are premade, scored and folded for you. So make sure you check out Step 1 HERE.
This is a lovely gold pearl card base from the Pearls assorted pack.

Happy Tuesday! We had some website issues so we are redoing yesterday’s chalkboard post. Unfortunately, I deleted the information from my computer yesterday as well so we don’t have some of the supply lists for these projects. BUT the main thing you need to know is that creating Chalkboard projets is SO EASY with Black Magic Cardstock!
Not sure if you saw our Chalkboard Tips and Tricks post HERE. We did that in conjuction with one of our newsletters. If you don’t get our HCC emails SIGN UP HERE to get access to exclusive content like videos, downloadable project sheets and more!
First up we have Clare Buswell creating a Thanksgiving card for us. Clare combines some hand written details, stamping and chalks. Clare uses her The Cat’s Meow stamps for a lot of her projects and they are so amazing! This Autumn Borders looks so great stamped in the white embossing ink against the black. A neat break from traditional Thanksgiving and Fall cards.
And a close up of how cool the doodling, stamping and chalks look:
And now for some layouts. First up Kate Nolan-Denham working her chalkboard skills with a city scape. this really has a cool grungey feel to it. That is the great thing about distressing…anything goes!
Next up scor scor scor!!!!!!! Debbie Standard uses some random scored lines for her background and, of course, her signature hand made flowers from her Spellbinders dies.
