Hello stampers! Welcome to another fabulous Creation Station Blog Hop. This month's hop is all about giving thanks. Something everyone should do more often, including myself. I am anxiously awaiting the changing colors of the leaves. In the mean time, I decided to use that as my inspiration for my projects.
Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso are all the colors I am anticipating to see soon. I used the large leaf die from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets and die cut out three leaves in a row from a piece of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the splatter from the Swirly Bird stamp set all over the card stock in Crumb Cake ink. I took pieces of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crushed Curry and adhered them behind the opening of each leaf. Using the vein leaf die from that same thinlet set, I embossed it with gold embossing powder and tucked it behind the piece of Whisper White card stock with the words stamped on it. The words are from the Country Home set that I absolutely adore! I stepped it up a notch and stamped the "thankful" again on a piece of card stock this time in Cherry Cobbler ink, and cut it out. I popped it up on mini dimensionals to give it more visual interest.
To coordinate with my card, I created a triangle box and filled it with sweets! With a little scoring and folding, it was easy to make. I took a 4" x 7" piece of Whisper White card stock and stamped all over it. Then I folded it in half at 3 1/2" and opened it back up again. I then scored from the 2" spot on the 4" side to each of the corners that the initial fold created. I did that on both sides. Then simply fold each crease and punch a hole on each side, fill with sweets and tie shut with a ribbon! Absolutely no adhesive needed! Woo hoo!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope these inspired you to do a little giving thanks of your own. To see even more inspiration, hop along to the wonderfully sweet and talented, Kathy Kartak. Happy Stamping!
