Stampin Friends Thanksgiving Hop


Welcome to the Stampin Friends Thanksgiving 2017 Hop!

You have arrived at Kathie’s (that’s me!) blog.  If you have arrived from Lana Staab’s amazing blog … I’m glad you came for a visit!  Be sure to continue on though the hop until you get back to where you started.  I hope you find lots of inspiration as you hop on through!  The list of participants is at the bottom of this post.

Be sure to read to the end … there is another amazing GIVEAWAY this month … details below!

Here are my projects for our October hop … Thanksgiving.  I chose to use the  Stampin’ Up!’s  Sheltering Tree  stamp set (137163) for this project.
My class wanted to do an Eclipse card, so I came up with this one.  I like to teach/show a different technique every month.  There are a number of techniques used on this one card: Eclipse, Baby Wipe and masking.

 Look closely and you may notice that the stamped sentiment says “thankful for”.  The stamp actually says “thankful for you“.   Because I wanted to use “YOU” as my Eclipse technique, I masked the “you” on the stamp with washi tape.  Just be sure to remove the washi tape after inking up your stamp in Early Espresso ink.  I also stamped the tree in Early Espresso.

I used Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Peek A Boo Peach and Lemon Lime Twist re-inkers on the baby wipe to make my “ink pad”.  I inked up the full tree leaves image and stamped it over my tree.  I chose those colors because I wanted to coordinate with the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper (144613) I have layered on the card

After my stamping was complete, I used the Large Letter Framelits  (141712) to cut out YOU using the magnetic platform and Bigshot.  The letters are popped up on our adhesive strips.  The strips are thicker than dimensionals and I like the higher “pop” for this.

As always, I carry the theme from the card front to the inside.

Don’t you think the little rake leaning on the tree is a nice touch?  Don’t forget to add a few fallen leaves using the baby wipe you already have inked up!

Here is my 3-D project … RSVP pens that I bought at Staples …  I rolled up a small piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper and inserted it into the pen’s barrel.  Then I made a simple box that holds the pen perfectly.  Thank you to Ann Melvin’s YouTube tutorial for the box!
