Welcome to our October Stampin Friends Blog Hop!!! I am super excited to share my projects. Our theme this month is 'Give Thanks'! I hope you follow and hop along with us.

Let's hop right in! I am just so excited about my projects...did I say that already??
Awhile back, when I still had in-home classes and tables at craft fairs, I had created a workshop for seasonal 12x12 Samplers! It was a big hit! I then continued on to make several holiday samplers (Valentine's, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween and Christmas, and most recently I was ask to make custom monthly samplers for wonderful customer, who wanted to be able to change her Sampler frame monthly!! Now after a few years of having my original ones displayed, I decided to update my fall one to a "thankful" one. I have included a copy of the samplers I have made at the very end of the blog post.
I create a Fun-Fold card to match. I will be giving this as a gift to my mother who just is now displaying a sampler I made.
I absolutely love fall, it's my favorite season, I truly enjoy when the weather gets cooler and the leaves change. I used the Stampin UP Harvest Meadow Suite and Pretty Pumpkins Bundle for my projects.
The card is a 'W' Fun-Fold Card. It looks like a W when the card is opened! It is SO easy to make.
You will need the following:
Cardbase: Misty Moonlight 8 1/2x11 cardstock, cut at 4 1/2x11 score on the 11' side at 5 1/2
Misty Moonlight 1 3/4x11 strip score on the 11' side at 2 3/4, 5 1/2 & 8 1/4
Misty Moonlight (4) at 2 1/4x2 3/4
Basic white (3) at 4 x 5 1/4 and (2) at 2x2 1/2
Harvest Meadow DSP 3 3/4x5 and (2) at 2x2 1/2
Cork Specialty Paper 3x 3/12
Attach the 3 3/4x5 piece of DSP to the Basic White layer, before adhering to the cardbase, be sure to wrap the Diamond Weave Ribbon and tie and bow on the side.
I used the Pretty Pumpkins set to stamp the pumpkins. I used the Pumpkin Pie and Just Jade Stampin Blends to color them and cut them out with the Dies. I added some loops of the Gold Cording in-between the pumpkin layers.
For the inside of the card, attach the 4 x 5 1/4 Basic White to each side of the cardbase. Fold the 1 3/4 strip, accordion fold, and attach at each edge of the basic white. See Photo Below. Attach the 2 smaller DSP pieces to the Misty Moonlight. Stamp on the Basic Whiteand then attach to the Misty Moonlight
I created a video below, to show how to assemble the card!
I hope you enjoyed the projects I have made for October's Stampin Friends Blog Hop!
