Taylored Expressions - Thankful for you - Die Foucus

Hi all! And a Very Happy Thursday to you! 8-) Well, today I'm back with a quick post, to share my latest Taylored Expressions creation inspired by TE's Awesome Mix & Match Bows Dies, TE's Sack It Pumpkin Dies & TE's Bushel & a Peck stamp set as well, to create these Fun Patchwork Pumpkin Thanksgiving cards!...;-)
I had lots of fun putting these Darling Fallicious cards together! 8-)  I just can't help it I love All things Fall and Fall colors especially, I was just having such a tough time deciding which patterned papers to use, that I took a hint from our heirloom style fall patchwork quilt  that I had just put out on our bed and thought, hmmm, wonder if I could do that with my pumpkins.. lol  So what do you think?  I kind of like them... ;-)
I started off by cutting my Sack It Pumpkins out of several different patterned papers, some older ones I've had in my stash forever and some Simple Stories Sweater Weather patterned papers as well. Next I cut my pumpkins up into various pieces, inked them all up with Vintage Photo Distress ink and fit them all back together like jig-saw puzzles on top of scratch paper BG Sack It Pumpkin Die cuts ( for guide purposes ) and popped them all up with a bit of foam tape... 8-) 
My Mats and BG layers were created with Bazzill CS, TE's Sugar Cube Premium CS & a touch of shading with Vintage Photo Distress ink. And to finish them all up I stamped my Bushel & a Peck Sentiment directly onto my Sweet patchwork pumpkins and topped them all off with some Yummy Taylored Felt bows created with the help of TE's Mix & Match Bows Dies... 8-)

Here are the items I used for my project today...

Hope you all have a Super day & Thanks so much for stopping by... 8-)
