Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Thankful, Grateful and Blessed

Celebration Tidings

You know I like a stamp set that can be used for lots of different occasions.  The Celebration Tidings set starts off with Halloween and will take you thru to Valentine's Day, at least.  I especially like the little pumpkin image in this set.  It is quick and easy to color and can be used with a sentiment or not.


I made this card for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0072.  


The Festive Friday Challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that features an Inspo aka Inspiration list that is based on festivities and holidays.  The Inspo list features 10 items and you need to use 3 of the items on your project.  Once you create your project you need to post it in the Festive Friday gallery.  It is fun and easy to play along.

For this challenge I chose the elements thankful theme, leaves, wood and pumpkins.  


Instead of a regular card base I created a simple pocket.   The card portion slips in and out of the pocket.  

  • Early Espresso CS  pocket 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2",  9-3/4", 3" x 4" (Scalloped Oval)
  • In Good Taste DSP 4-1/4" x 4"
  • Old Olive CS- 4-1/8" x 5-3/8", 3" x 4" (leaves)
  • Very Vanilla CS- 3-7/8" x 5-1/8",  3" x 4" (Stitched Shape Oval)

You can secure the sides of the pocket with a thin line of glue.  I used the Vanilla 1/2" Ribbon from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo pack to secure the pocket.  


I used the Detailed Trio punch to round all the corners.   The pumpkin image and the little greenery image were colored using Stampin' Blends.  The rhinestones were colored using Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blend.

I look forward to seeing what you create using the #FF0072 Inspo List for the Festive Friday Challenge.

Oh, Sharon! This is such a cute pocket card. I love the layout, with the green leaves peeking out behind the oval, and the sweet little bow and rhinestone accents. It's a perfect card for this challenge!

This is beautiful, Sharon. I love the pocket design, that luscious woodgrain paper and I especially love that tiny detail of leaves and buds in the top right corner of the insert. Beautiful creation, as always.

Helen Jennings

I love this pocket card. So much attention to details. I especially love how the rounded corners soften the look of the card.
