Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

I’m sharing a Thanksgiving card in gold for today’s Team Stamp It’s October 2020 Blog Hop.

Welcome to our monthly blog hop where members of Tami White’s Stampin’ Up! talented team share a collection of cards and projects. This month’s theme is Thanksgiving and fall.

Happy Thanksgiving in Gold

Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Cards and Envelopes provided the inspiration for my card today. Find them on page 51 of the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. You receive a package of 10 cards and coordinating metallic gold envelopes for $10. These Very Vanilla bases feature gold detailing around the edges, perfect to frame a photo or stamped image. They help you create quick and easy cards that are beautiful, too!

To make the leaf accents, I grabbed the leaf from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. I heat embossed the leaf with Gold Embossing Powder. With the sponge daubers, I then added different colors of ink to the embossed image. The colors used include: Crushed Curry, Blackberry Bliss, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. I wiped away any excess ink with a paper towel.

With the coordinating leaf die from the Nature’s Roots Dies, I die cut with the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine and adhered three leaves to the card with Glue Dots.

The sentiment comes from the Banner Year stamp set and is stamped with Blackberry Bliss. The Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels add some blingy accents.

Stampin’ Friends Fall Card

Welcome to the Stampin’ Friends Fall Card Blog Hop for October 2020 A group of talented stampers is sharing cards and projects revolving around a thankfulness theme.

Stampin' Friends Fall Card

Be sure to visit all of the blogs for inspiration and leave a comment. See the end of this post for the list of participating stampers.

Stampin’ Friends Fall Card Sample

What do you love most about fall? The cooler temperatures? The taste and smell of pumpkin spice? The brilliant fall colors and the changing of the seasons?

For me, it’s the fall foliage. That’s what I miss most about living in the Midwest. You can see some color change here in Arizona, but not as much as the brilliant maples of Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Nebraska. (I won’t, however, miss the snow when it falls in the Midwest!)

Today’s card and 3D treat package reflect some of that beautiful fall color.

Stampin' Friends Fall Card

This card uses:

  • A Blackberry Bliss card stock base
  • Gold Foil layer measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Very Vanilla layer measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″ embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder
  • Gold Foil cut with largest scallop circle from Layering Circles Dies
  • Blackberry Bliss — largest stitched circle from Stitched Shapes Dies
  • Leaf from Gathered Leaves Dies cut out of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (Guess what? The Plaid Tidings 6 x 6 paper is on sale–15 percent off through October 31, 2020!)
  • Two leaves cut in Mango Melody and Cajun Craze card stock
  • Sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and punched with Classic Label Punch
  • Bow created with Gold Cord (part of the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack)

And, I made a matching treat box with one of Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Mini Pizza Boxes, using many of the same ingredients as the card above. Lots of fun treats fit in this gorgeous box.
