Ladybug Ink Blog Hop: Thanksgiving Style

We are heading to the holidays! And this month, the Ladybugs decided to skip Halloween and focus our blog hop on Thanksgiving. I'll be honest, I don't do much for Thanksgiving. We do make it a point to be with family, that is important to us, but other than hanging out with la familia, stuffing my face, and watching football, there's not much more to Thanksgiving. So Thanksgiving craft projects are a little hard for me. But after watching Mary Fish's tutorial on how to make a card using the Floral Framelits, I was inspired for this blog hop.

Stampin' Tips:

  • Disclaimer: Remember that Stampin' Up! recommends cutting only one piece of cardstock with the framelits, and this card will require you to cut through two pieces at one time. I haven't had any issues with cutting two pieces of cardstock with the framelits, but I wanted to make you aware that my framelit usage goes against recommendations. 
  • Colors: Pumpkin Pie, Baked Brown Sugar, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip, and Daffodil Delight
  • Stamp set: Tags 4 You 
  • Designer Series Paper: Epic Day This and That and 2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Accessories: Floral Framelits, Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Label Bracket Punch 
  • When cutting the Epic Day and In-Color DSP with the floral framelit, position the DSP on top of each other and run both pieces through the Big Shot at the same time. This will allow you to perfectly line up the pieces. 
  • Cut a piece of the Always Artichoke with the Label Bracket Punch, cut it in half, and then layer it to the back of the "Happy Thanksgiving" tag. 
Thanks for stopping by! Hop on over to Cassie's blog.
