Madison is our youngest Design Team member but SUPER talented! I have enjoyed her work for some time. She creates card sets that would be the PERFECT gift. She does this to provide financing for her volleyball endeavors. She is a super talented and super all around girl!  Please be sure to check out and support her ECRAFT show…You can GO HERE to see all the marvelous things she makes and sells. 

Up for grabs this week is this super adorable set of all occasion cards. 
These would make the perfect hostess, teacher, friend gifts for Christmas!

So on to our Design Team’s Inspiration

Here is a close up of the Cornucopia. The Cornucopia is from Everyday Paper Dolls and the Giving title and apple are from Plantin Schoolbook. The leaves are those fabric-type pre glittered in a package decorations and the rest are die cuts I designed. 
The mat the Pie is on actually opens up to reveal a hidden journaling spot.

I used the Gobble ‘til u wobble turkey set (coming soon) from papercraftingworld.com

Here is a close up of the “stuffed turkey” holding his tummy.

I used leaves and acorns cuts (coming soon) from papercraftingworld.com and the give thanks and flourishes are Quickutz dies.

Here are a couple of close up shots of the leaves. I inked them with orange, red and green inks and then went over them with Dark brown and chestnut roan chalk ink. I then added Stickles for the veins. It really does look a lot prettier in person.
