Welcome to our October CTMH Festive Friday Blog Hop. The hop is organized by Diane Tuggle and starts at her blog The Happy Scrapbooker. This is a circular hop so it does not matter where you start - just keep hopping until you reach the post where you started.
You should have arrived at my blog from The Sassy Scrapper - Theresa Miller.
I made a Thanksgiving card for this month's hop.
Here is a closeup of some of the elements on the card:
I started with a card from the 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" Colonial White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack (X1410). I stamped the corn stalk from Count Your Blessings (C1555) directly on the card base using the Archival Black Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad (44751). Then I stamped the pumpkin on a piece of scrap Colonial White cardstock (1388). I colored both in with Watercolor Pencils (3505) and used a water brush to blend (I would have used a Blending Pen (3174), but mine was en route to Utah for the Album Retreat). I fuzzy cut around the pumpkin after coloring it.
Using the technique I posted on Saturday, October 12, I cut dove tails into a scrap strip of Kraft cardstock (Z1375). Then I used the Stitch Guide (Z1852), Foam Mat (Z1859) and Piercing Tool Kit (Z1114) to create the border and center design on the banner. I used some of my mother's decorative thread and a needle to stitch.
I stamped "Blessed" using the swipe technique (if this is a new-to-you technique, you will find a video on my September 13, 2012 post) and an Autumn Terracotta Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad (Z2101) on a piece of scrap Colonial White cardstock (1388) and cut a dove tail on one end.
I cut a piece of Sarita paper (X7171B) to fit the height of the card and then tore one edge. I used the chocolate Distressing Inks (Z1296) on the torn edge.
I used Tombow® Adhesive (1514) to attach the Sarita paper and stamped "Blessed". I use 3-D Foam Tape (Z1151) to attach the pumpkin and banner to the card to give it some dimension.
Thanks for visiting today. I would love to hear your thoughts about my card. I hope that you are enjoying the hop.
