Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop: Changing Seasons


 Welcome to the October GSF Blog Hop!

We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who love what we do and share what we love. This months theme is Changing Seasons.

I spent last week in Steamboat Springs, Co with My husband and a friend of mine from California. We all have a love of photography and spent most of our days there on driving tours of the surrounding countryside and taking pictures of the glorious fall foliage. I love taking off on dirt roads that lead to some obscure pass in the mountains. We live in a beautiful state and I enjoy sharing it with friends and family.

This month I have combined a few of my favorite products to create a Thanksgiving card to share with you. 

I started with the Arrange A Wreath Bundle and the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. I die cut the Fern            Wreath using the Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock. Then die cut the Leaf Wreath on Early Espresso Cardstock.


 I punched out some of the leaves directly from the Gilded Autumn SDSP using the Autumn Punch Pack and added them to my Wreath. The Card Base is Cajun Craze Cardstock. The card Front is from the Gilded Autumn SDSP. I die cut the Inner Circle of the wreath from the Gilded Autumn SDSP using one of the Layering Circle dies. I adhered this to the Largest Very Vanilla Celebration Label that I die cut a little bit shorter to fit on my card. Then I layered up my Wreaths with dots of Liquid Glue on top of the Circle. I stamped the  sentiment with Cajun Craze Ink on Very Vanilla and Die cut it with the Stitched Shapes Oval Dies. I die cut a Scalloped Oval Mat for the sentiment on the Gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock. I Adhered the matted sentiment to the Wreath with Mini Dimensionals. Then I adhered the assembled Celebration Label to my Card Front with Stampin' Dimensionals. The Envelope Flap Cover has been die cut from the same SDSP using the Envelope Dies.

I hope you like my take on our Changing Seasons theme. Now it is time to see what Changing Seasons inspiration has for you. Just click on the arrow below.

  2. Lol, I was telling myself I didn't need the punch pack, because I was sure I would then have to buy the coordinating stamp set. And now you go and point out that I can punch the images from the DSP! You are such an enabler. ;-) Thanks for sharing!
