A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Back in Plaid

If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Jennifer Hills Blog - I think we all have to SQUEAL!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 15 of us in this hop - 13 different cards and 3-d projects!!! WHOO HOO!

 

6a0120a5bac552970c01b7c91a9726970b-400wi

  

I'm super excited to show you what I made with the November BACK IN PLAID PAPER PUMPKIN KIT - those little stockings are soooo adorable! 

Here's the kit:

 

S-l640

And this adorable stamp set:

S-l640 (1)

And here's what I made with it! I added the SOFTLY FALLING embossing folder and some GOLD FOIL PAPER to the kit with some cardstock and came up with this pretty card. I cut the GOLD FOIL PAPER 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" and just cut it on the bottom to match the banner with the tree on it.

Then I got out my LAYERING SQUARES FRAMELITS and a little GOLD RIBBON to make this cutie. I cut the banners with the gold snowflakes on them to 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" and then used the scalloped square framelit that's 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" for the Elegant Eggplant layer behind each one.

The first thing that popped into my head with the stocking was to stamp directly on it! I used ELEGANT EGGPLANT ink with the snowflake image and I pulled my WHITE BAKER'S TWINE through the same ink pad to dye it purple to match:

I'm going to put a gift card in the stocking with some candy - I can't hardly wait for Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!

In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.

Whatever you may be doing today - where ever you may be - may your day be filled with friends and family and laughter and a great feast! And be thankful - I know I am!

Joke

A Cabbie picks up a Nun. She gets into the cab, and notices that the
VERY handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her.
She asks him why he is staring. He replies:
"I have a question to ask, but I don't want to offend you"

She answers, "My son, you cannot offend me. When you're as old as I am
and have been a nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and
hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could
say or ask that I would find offensive."


"Well, I've always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me."
She responds, "Well, let's see what we can do about that: #1, you have
to be single and #2, you must be Catholic."


The cab driver is very excited and says, "Yes, I'm single and
Catholic!
"OK" the nun says. "Pull into the next alley."


The nun fulfills his fantasy with a kiss that would make a hooker
blush.
But when they get back on the road, the cab driver starts crying.
"My dear child," said the nun, "Why are you crying?"


"Forgive me but I've sinned. I lied and I must confess; I'm married
and I'm Jewish."


The nun says, "That's OK. My name is Kevin and I'm going to a
Halloween party."

Control Freaks November 2017

CF

Happy Holidays!!! That's the theme for our blog hop this month. I'm super excited to show a couple Christmas cards I created with the Carols of Christmas bundle!!!

You might be arriving from the fabulous Melissa Davies or you might be starting right here with my blog...either way...make sure you go to the bottom and look for the NEXT button and continue on the hop with us! There are 8 blogs in this Happy Holidays hop to share with you.

DSCN9495w

This is one of the best bundles in the Holiday Mini Catalog - I love the Carols of Christmas bundle - the stamp set has fabulous fonts for the large greetings and an amazing set of thinlits called Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies. 

DSCN9493w

I thought the nutcrackers were a perfect print for this card - they come from the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper - aren't they fun? This card base is Night of Navy and the front is embossed with the Quilt Top embossing folder (144687). The addition of the Gold Glimmer Paper (133719) was perfect to add that bit of glitz to my card - don't you think?

DSCN9487w

The card below also uses the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper (144629) with Vellum Cardstock (101856) as the overlay. Such a subtle look - right? I used Real Red, Garden Green and Soft Suede ink with a Real Red cad base and Garden Green for the trees. The framelit design really makes this card spectacular. I added a little Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the trees - it's hard to see in the photo but in real life it's so pretty!

DSCN9491w

Here's a photo of the bundle - LOVE IT!

Some main ingredients:

  • Stamps - Carols of Christmas (144801 Wood, 144804 Clear Mount) Bundle - (146036 Wood, 146037 Clear Mount)
