Welcome to the Cricut Card Fairy Blog Hop. This month we are practicing being thankful for all the blessings in our lives. What are you thankful for? Do you stop daily and thank those around you for blessing you? Do you appreciate the small things in life? I sure hope so! With that in mind the wonderful fairies have put together some awesome THANKSGIVING/THANKFUL themed crafty items. Along the way there will be opportunities for inspiration, and blog candy. So make sure you hop all the way through, leave comments on every blog, and then a comment here on my blog when finished. I will be giving away a BNIP (Brand New In Package)Hello Kitty Greetings cart to a person that comments on ALL the blogs and here too! Happy hopping!
You should have arrived from Shellie's Creations, if you didn't you may want to start in the beginning and work your way through!!!
Here is the order in case you get lost along the way.
GRKIDDO http://ginathorntonstamping.blogspot.com YOU ARE HERE!
Ok so here is what I am Thankful for:
My wonderful Children Cheyenne is 7, Cameron is 4:
These are my 4 favorite kids!
First is my daughter, Cheyenne, My niece Savanna, My nephew William, and my son, Cameron
My Family (Minus my hubby who couldn't be there):
My sister Ginnese (in Purple), Her daughter Savanna (teal), My Sister-in-Law Bonnie (Bride), My Brother Duane (groom), My daughter Cheyenne (white shirt in front), my sister's son William (blue striped shirt), My Mom Ginnie (Blue with flowers) and me (purple shirt)and the littlest guy, my son, Cameron.
I am also VERY Thankful for my good friend Terri!! We text back and forth every day, almost all day long. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't make it through the day! LOL. My children always say "it's Miss Terri" whenever I get a text (and usually it is!). Here is Terri (in the black) at our recent Crop Weekend in Hamburg, with her sister Sherri.
Ok I would be lying if I didn't say that I am thankful for this:
Oh and there is so many other things I am thankful for! All of my card making supplies, RUBBER STAMPS, my friends, and so much more!!!!
Ok so here we go, my thankful project. Now I realize that most of the wonderful Fairies that have showcased their creations before me, most likely made layouts, but I have to be different! (It wouldn't be me if I wasn't!) And I am hands down more of a card maker then a scrapper, so here is what I have to show.
It features the French Foliage stamp set, in Clear Mount, by Stampin' Up. The colors are Kraft, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede. The embossing is done with the Square Lattice embossing folder by Stampin' Up,I just flipped the already embossed cardstock over as I really like the Debossed image! Once it was embossed (debossed) I used my brayer and brayered some Pumpkin Pie Classic ink over it. The image was done using the "Bamming" technique. I saw this on a website, and sadly I can't remember who's idea it was. You ink up the whole image, with one color and then you take another color and bam an ink pad on it, one time only, which gives it some dimension. I love how the leaves look with this technique!! The great thing about using the Clear Mount is you can use a larger block, organize your smaller stamps on it in whatever pattern you'd like, and then you can make a larger image, or use it to make your own backgrounds! The sentiment is from Day of Gratitude, and it is matted using the Decorative Label punch by Stampin' Up. There is a way to layer the punches to make it look as though it is matted, and I do have a tutorial for that, but that is another project for another day!
When you are finished here, hop on over to Jamie's blog! And thanks for stopping by!!!!
