Stampin’ Up! Thankful Blog Hop

2015-Nov-badgeWelcome to the Pals November Blog Hop, we’re so thankful you stopped by.  This month we’re showcasing projects that feature Stampin’ Up! Thanksgiving and “Thank You” products.  We hope you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or you may have come from the previous blog on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you can enjoy each and every beautiful project.

Last week, my hubby was on the phone with someone when he asked me how to fix a computer wifi network.  You HAVE to know my husband (a carpenter) to know how strange this was of him to ask such a thing.  Turns out HE was giving computer advice to someone on the phone. LOL  Next thing I know he says “we will be right over”.  What?!?  “Who was that?” I asked.  Turns out it was the best man from our wedding, that we haven’t seen since the wedding, 25 years ago.  Well, I fixed his computer network and in return – he fixed my car!!

Bonus: He’s a veteran and I’m thanking him on my blog on Veterans Day!

My car has had it’s idiot light on for what seems like forever!  It needed a new part (for cleaner air emissions) and everywhere I called wanted more money than I had to fix it. So, in my mind – this was HUGE!  So, I made him a “thank you” card.  It needed to be masculine, so I brought out the hardwood background stamp and my leaf framelits – I loved the result!
fall-scene-in-leafThis card started with a Chocolate Chip card base (8.5″ x 5.5″, scored at 4.25″).  Then I used Chocolate Chip ink to stamp onto a 5.25″ x 4″ layer of Sahara Sand card stock with the Stampin’ Up! Hardwood background stamp.  I then used the maple leaf framelit to cut out the shape in the middle of the hardwood layer.  I then used the Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the fall scene from the Stampin’ Up! Happy Scenes stamp set, onto a 3.5″ x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla card stock and colored it with my Stampin’ Up! markers.

I adhered the Very Vanilla card stock to the card base with snail adhesive and the hardwood layer of that with dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment (from the same set), in Always Artichoke ink, onto a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with the oval punch and sponged some ink of that ink on the edges and adhered that to the card with snail adhesive. To finish it off I tied a little bit of linen thread into a bow and attached that with a glue dot.

Note: I’ve included links to all supplies used in this project at the bottom of this post.
