Stamp It Blog Hop — Country Home Thanksgiving Holiday

Hello everyone and welcome to our October Stamp It Bog Hop.  I'm super excited to share a card focusing on this month's theme — Thanksgiving Holiday.  I can't believe that I'm going to say this, but I'm getting hungry for the traditional Thanksgiving feast...turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and, let's not forget...pumpkin pie!  YUM!!  Since I know I won't be eating any of those foods soon, let's take a peek at what I have to share with you today!


If you have been traveling along the Stamp It Group Blog Hop, or, if this is your very first stop, I want to thank you so much for stopping to visit me Lori Mueller, Stampin' Dreams. If you like to skip and hop and happen to get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.


When I was preparing another card using this Country Home stamp set, I had stamped a couple of the images so that I could practice coloring with the Stampin' Blends.  With the philosophy of 'waste not, want not', I thought I would use one of them for this card.


It's typical that I use Designer Series Paper on my projects, but this time, the colored image gave me direction for a stamped background and color combinations.  Can you believe that this card is the first time that my Buffalo Check Background stamp has seen ink?  GASP!  I inked it with Basic Gray ink and stamped onto a layer of Mango Melody.  Both the background and focal image are matted onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock to help accentuate the artichoke in the floral image.


One of my ultimate favorite things to do is add more than one color to the sentiment.  Since there is more than one font featured, it just seemed fitting to ink with Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.  Love the added character.


To bring in a little bit of country, the Linen Braided Trim is the perfect touch.  I love the softness...and, it ties beautifully into a little bow.


For more Thanksgiving inspiration, make sure you hop on over to the next Stamp It Group members' blogs to see what projects they have to share.  Thank you so much for stopping by....stop back again real soon.
