Stampin’ Up! Give Thanks Blog Hop

Today marks a new Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge.  Be sure to play along this week!

This is a beautiful fall theme challenge and I thought it worked perfectly with this month’s Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop theme which is “Giving Thanks.”

My card starts off with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I then took a panel of Mango Melody cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Using the Layering Circles Framelits I cut out a circle first from the Mango Melody cardstock.  I traced the cut circle on a panel of Whisper White cardstock and on the Pumpkin Pie card front.  I then lined up the circle framelit over and cut them out.

I stamped the sunflower image from the Many Blessings stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock to be adhered inside the card.  I also stamped the wreath on a separate panel of Whisper White cardstock in Memento Black ink.

I used Dark Mango Melody (inside of sunflower and highlight on leaf), Light Daffodil Delight (edge of sunflower), Dark & Light Granny Apple Green (leaves), Smokey Slate (jar), Light Pumpkin Pie (highlight on leaf), and Light Crumb Cake (inside of sunflower) Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the images in.

I used the wreath from the Many Blessings Stamp Set, but made it a complete circle by using the masking technique.  I stamped the wreath first in Memento Black ink.  I then covered the two ends with a piece of scrap paper.  I very carefully only inked up a bit of the wreath again and stamped the image, connecting the two ends.

I then fussy cut the wreath out and adhered it over the cicle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Many Blessings Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to cut the ends and the hole for the tag.  I wove through some Linen Thread and tied a Braided Linen ribbon over it.

Enjoy!

  1. Ah, so this is why you fussy cut the wreath! Lovely. I also wondered at the time how you got it to go full circle. Now I know. It was kind of a sneak peek!

  2. My first thought was I don’t remember a die cut for that wreath! You are the fussy-cutting queen! I love the way it frames the sweet sunflower bouquet. it makes a beautiful card.
