CCDT Blog Hop - ThankfulNess


Hello and welcome! It is time for another Creative Circle Blog Hop. The theme is Thankfulness! I have a lot to be thankful for:
  • Family
  • Health
  • Friends
  • Creative Circle Design Team
  • Downlines
  • and Everyone who surrounds me through my crafting circle - mainly Stampin' Up!
I am pretty much thankful for everything. Life is too short to worry about so I try not to worry or be stressed.

Our Thanksgiving was in October. I made this card for the in-laws who hosted the Holloway's family dinner. Although I was not able to attend, I sent her this card to let her know I care and thank her for inviting us.

Copper is in, and I had to play with the Seasonal Layer and the Copper foil. I die cut (2) maple leafs from the Seasonal Layer, and left the intricate cuts in. I wanted show that you don't have to remove every single cuts. It actually adds character to the card.

The foil maple leafs are stacked, and before laying the leafs down, I wrapped copper thread around the fingers, and then set it on the layered pieces. It is layered onto Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White and then Copper Foil. Then this gets added to the embossed Petal Burst Whisper White cs.

My PopUp Twist Insert is going viral, and you probably will see more!

So rather than Happy Birthday insert, I created the Thankful Twist. I die cut (3) branches from Bouquet Bunch Framelits, and piled them on top of each other to make it look like hay.

Then stamped and colored each pumpkin and attached to my insert. Here are all the measurements.

Details: (1) 4-1/4" x 11" Crushed Curry, scored at 5-1/2"
(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White, embossed in Petal Burst EF
(1) 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" Copper Foil
(1) 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" Whisper White
(1) 2" x 2" Pear Pizzazz
Remnant Copper Foil

Stamps: Seasonal Chum

Papers: Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Copper Foil, Basic Black
Accessories: Big Shot, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Petal Burst EF, Copper Metallic Thread, Bouquet Bunch Framelits
LHD: PoPuP Twist Insert, Vertical Thankful
