Stampin Friends 2020 Blog - OctoberThanks/Thankful
My Stampin Friends (ladies from around the world) and I welcome crafters to join us on the third Thursday of each month to see cards and 3-D projects that we have created to follow the monthly theme. Our theme this month is Thanks/Thankful. If you are following the blogs, you have come from Sue Vine's blog. At the bottom I have included a list of the bloggers. After mine, you will find a link to Steph Jandrow's blog.
The timing of the blog hop has caught me by surprise. I didn't realize that this week is the third week of the month! My internal calendar is still thinking this is the second week of the month! Anyway,here goes.....
Thanksgiving in the US is November 26, and I have created a Thanksgiving card to send to some loved ones in Seattle and some little treat boxes to place on my Thanksgiving table.
I dry embossed a 4 x 5 1/4 inch piece of very vanilla card stock (Falling Leaves, a retired embossing folder) and then ran it through my die cutting machine to create the Happy cutout. I used that same die to cut a cinnamon cider Happy cutout which I adhered on the back of the first one to create a shading effect. I sponged the falling leaves with various fall colors, attached the circle and leaves. Thanksgiving is a die cut in the Word Wishes set. I used the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch on the Thanksgiving banner.
The Treat Box:
I put two Hershey Nuggets in the box and closed it off with some Cinnamon Cider Ribbon and Linen Thread.
