Grateful for You - Stampin' Friends Blog Hop 2017



Welcome to Stampin' Friends Blog Hop for October. This month we are creating giving thanks or Thanksgiving cards and projects.


I created this card by embossing some Early Espresso Cardstock with a fall leaf embossing folder, adding a small border at the bottom using a borders die, and making a pumpkin using several layered ovals cut with stitched dies. I added some die cut leaves, the "grateful" word die, and stamped "for you" onto a small hand cut white banner. For the picket fencce, I cut some strips from wood textures paper, dog-eared the tops, and laid them out in a picket fence pattern.

Supplies Used:
Early Espresso Cardstock - Stampin' Up
Crumb Cake Cardstock - Stampin' Up
Wood Textures DSP Stack - Stampin' Up
Embossing Folder - Paper Studio
Hello Fall Paper Pad - Carta Bella
"Grateful" die cut - Taylored Expressions
Leaf Diecuts - Lawn Fawn
Stitched Hillside Borders - Lawn Fawn
Stitched  Shapes Framelits - Stampin Up

I also made a little "wooden crate" to go along with my card. These would make perfect table favors for Thanksgiving!


I made the same oval layered pumpkin, added some die cut leaves and a "thankful" banner. I added some crinkle paper to the inside of the crate, and tied some twine around it. You can use a die cut for the crate or hand make one with a 6 x 6 piece of wood textures paper, scored at 1-1/2" and 4-1/2" on one side and at 2" and 4" on the other side. Either way, it creates a darling little "wooden crate".

Supplies Used:
Wood Textures DSP Stack - Stampin' Up
Hello Fall Paper Pad - Carta Bella
Leaf Diecuts - Lawn Fawn
Endless Thanks Stamp Set (retired) - Stampin' Up
Stitched  Shapes Framelits - Stampin Up
