Third Thursday Blog Hop: November Gratitude & Gatherings



Welcome to the 3rd Thursdays Blog Hop! Our theme for this month is Gratitude & Gatherings. This is so appropriate with Thanksgiving only a week away. Our gathering will be on the small side this year. Just my husband, myself and our Daughter April and her husband, Ryan. But I always enjoy their company and am looking forward to having them over for the day.

I am sharing a Grateful card today. I stated with the All-Around Wreath Dies, which is a part of the Tidings All Around Bundle (purchasing the bundles will save you 10%). I cut 2 of the leaf wreaths. One in Garden Green and one in Pear Pizzazz. I then cut some of the Branches in Soft Suede and several of the leaf sprigs in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. I stamped just the Grateful from the Grateful for Your Kindness (from the Seasonal Wreaths stamp set) in Soft Suede Ink on a 5/8" strip of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I trimmed the ends with the Tailored Tag Punch.


To assemble the card I started with a Stitched Rectangle from the Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper. I cut a Stitched Shapes Square of Very Vanilla that I matted onto a Soft Suede Scalloped Layering Square. I adhered these together with some Multipurpose Glue. This became the base for my Wreaths. I adhered 1st the Garden Green Wreath to the Squares with Liquid Glue and then adhered the Pear Pizzaz Wreath with some Mini Glue Dots. To add some dimension to the wreaths I finger curled some of the leaves on the Pear Pizzaz Wreath. Then I added the Branches & Leaf Sprigs to the wreath. After curling the Grateful Banner with my Bone Folder I adhered it to the wreath opening with a Glue Dot. I adhered the Completed wreath to the Stitched Rectangle with Dimensionals. I stamped the For Your Kindness with Soft Suede Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and die Cut this with a retired die from the Farmhouse Framelits. I matted this with Soft Suede Scalloped Square that I cut down to fit my sentiment. I popped this up on the Card Front with Dimensionals too. I adhered the completed Card Front to a Cajun Craze Card Base.

Here's hoping you enjoyed my take on this month's theme and now it is time to travel on to the next blog on our Hop.

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop: Plaid Theme



Welcome to the GSF October Blog Hop! Our theme for this month is Plaid. I of course took this to mean the gorgeous new Stampin' Up! Wrapped In Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Pine Tree Punch. I have used this suite of products quite a lot lately. This time I decided to use the Tags Tags Tags bundle with the Wrapped In Plaid SDSP.

This bundle allows you to create Tags for 3 different holidays. Halloween, Christmas and Valentines Day. You can stamp 3 different tags at once and then die cut the tags all at once. Pretty darn clever.

But I am using the Season's Greetings Stamp & Die on a Christmas card & a Treat Holder.

I started with a Gold Foil Stitched Nested Label. Then I layered a Cherry Cobbler Label (I used a Die from the Ornate Frames Die set) on top of that.The Season's Greeting Tag is stamped with Shaded Spruce Ink and then die cut with the coordinating Trio of tags Die. I covered the hole with a Cherry Cobbler Rhinestone and added another one at the bottom of the tag. The card has a Shaded Spruce Base, 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4". The Card Front Mat is Cherry Cobbler, 3 3/4" x 5" that I embossed with the Winter Knit 3D Embossing folder. The Card Front is from the Wrapped In Plaid SDSP, 3 1/4" x 4 1/2". the Inside Layer is Whisper White Cardstock, 3 3/4" x 5". I stamped a sentiment from Merry Christmas To All with Shaded Spruce Ink.


The little Treat Holder is 3 1/4" long, 1 1/2" wide, and 1 1/4" deep. It will hold 2 fun size Kit Kat bars or 2 Biscoff Belgium cookie pkgs.  Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, 6 3/4" x 8 1/4". Score the Short side at 1 1/4", 2 3/4",4", 5 1/2". Score the Long side at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 5 3/4",7". Fold and burnish all scored lines. Trim according to the photo below. I did round the corners on the Box Flap ( not shown here).

This box is based on The Paper Pixie's box. I just adjusted it to fit my needs.

The Belly Band is a 2" x 6" piece of Wrapped In Plaid SDSP.Scored at 1', 2 1/4" turn it around and score from the other end at 7/8" and 2 1/8". Fold this gently around the box and glue in place loosely to allow the band to slide off.

The Tag and labels are the same size as the one on the card above.

I hope you have enjoyed my Plaid take on our theme this month and I know you will want to continue on to the next blog on our list.
