I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving today! This year is a little different for sure! I hope you are able to visit virtually with your friends and family. My family is getting together on Zoom. We are quite the crowd as I am the oldest of eight!
I made this card for the Cardz4guyz Challenge # 258- Thank You/Thanksgiving. I just love the Cajun Craze card stock from Stampin’ Up!® for my fall projects. The Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper just looks so handsome next to the Cajun Craze card stock.
The wreath is made using the Gold Hoop Embellishment with some of the Forever Gold Laser-cut leaves for the background. The Very Vanilla foiled leaves are cut from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. The Gold Twine from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack compliments the copper Acorn Trinkets. The sentiment is from a retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Pleasant Pheasants and is stamped in Cajun Craze ink.
Please have a nice day of Thanks. Remember to be thankful for all the joy you bring to the world. You are a very special and unique person.
Have a most wonderful day and a crafty week! Stop by Cardz4guyz.blogspot.com and see everyone’s cards for Challenge #258-Thank You/Thanksgiving.
Even though it is still in the lower 90’s (degrees F) I am anxiously anticipating the cooler weather–soon I hope! I am in the mood for Autumn so I have been making cards with that theme.
The Autumn Punch Pack consists of two leaf punches which I used for the wreath on this lovely autumn card. There is also an acorn punch in the Punch Pack. The sentiment is from an awesome stamp set called Country Home. I have made many cards with this sentiment.
Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS): 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch card base with a score line at 4 1/4 inches and 3/4 x 3 inches; Bumble Bee CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper: one panel; scraps that measure at least 1 1/2 x 3 inches in Mango Melody CS, Cajun Craze CS, Pumpkin Pie CS and the Brushed Metal 12 x 12 inch CS in the copper and the gold. You will also need one of the Gold Hoops Embellishments and two of the Acorn Trinkets (not shown).
Stamp the sentiment “Happy harvest Blessings” in Cajun Craze ink onto the 3/4 x 3 inch Very Vanilla CS.
Punch the leaves out with the Autumn Punch Pack leaf punches. I punched out 3 of each of the colors of scrap CS with a mixture of the two leaf types.
The easiest way to adhere the leaves to the card is with the Mini Glue Dots. I stick the end of the leaf onto the Mini Glue Dot right on the roll. When I am ready to use the leaf, I just carefully peel it off of the sheet.
Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the Very Vanilla CS card base. Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Bumble Bee CS and then the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper panel. To adhere the gold panel, I applied the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue around the perimeter very sparingly. Adhere the Gold Hoop Embellishment by applying the Liquid Glue to the back sparingly. Put in place on the card front and apply pressure by placing something like a large punch on top to weight it down for 5 minutes.
Start by applying two Gold Brushed Metallic CS oak leaves slightly to the left of center on the Gold Hoop.
Add one leaf at a time behind the oak leaves. Use a mixture of the colors and different leaf types. Go as far as is pleasing to you.
Cut a banner end on the sentiment card piece. Apply the sentiment to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a leaf if desired on the end of the sentiment.
This is a little difficult to see. I used the gold twine in the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack to make two bows. The twine was tied onto the two Acorn Trinkets before tying the bow.
To adhere the Acorn Trinkets and bows, use the Mini Glue Dots. Transfer two Mini Glue Dots with the Take Your Pick Tool and place them at the base of the gold oak leaves. Adhere the bow with the Acorn Trinkets, then apply another Mini Glue Dot and adhere the second gold twine bow. NOTE: This card will not be able to be mailed in a standard envelope because the trinkets are too large. You will need to mail it in a bubble envelope.
Now for the Bling! I added the Mango Melody sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins. They are very subtle but do add a little more sparkle to the card. Tip: Use the Take Your Pick tool to transfer the sequins-much easier. If you do not yet have the Take Your Pick tool, you can use a toothpick.
Viola! There you have a shiny golden leaf wreath for Autumn!

I just wanted to pop on today and share this awesome masculine thank you card made with the Beautiful World stamp set.
I created this masculine thank you card with Cajun Craze Card Stock (CS) for the background on a Very Vanilla CS card base. The second layer is the Forever Gold Laser Cut paper.
I covered the Gold Hoop with leaves punched from the Brushed Metallic 12 x 12 inch CS with the Sprig Punch. The more granular gold leaf is made by applying Versamark to Crumb Cake CS and embossing with the Gold Emboss Powder. The globe and “Thank You” sentiment are also embossed with the Gold Emboss Powder. The gold twine comes from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and the sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequins.
Viola! You have an awesome masculine thank you Card!

Hi! Welcome to Theresa’s Treasures! I am Theresa McEntee and I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Bisbee, Arizona USA. I am so excited to be taking part in the last Blog Hop for this Demonstrator Training year. I have really enjoyed sharing my projects on the Blog Hop, and seeing all the fabulous projects on blogs from around the world. I am calling this card “World of Thanks”. Thanks to all of you who have been such a wonderful source of support and inspiration this year! Thanks to Kylie and Bruno for all of your positivity, support, training–everything!
Here’s my card for today:
Measurements: Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches scored at 4 1/4 inches, 1 x 3 inches for the sentiment and two 3 x 4 inches; Gold Brushed Metallic CS: 3 x 4 inches; Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty Paper: Chevron background; Cajun Craze CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
On one of the 3 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS pieces, I dragged the Versamark ink pad across it and embossed with the Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I then punched it with the Sprig Punch. I also punched the 3 x 4 inch Gold Brushed Metallic CS with the Sprig Punch. I cut the sprigs apart and used them as the base of my world. The world and the sentiment are from the Beautiful World stamp set. The world is stamped on the second 3 x 4 inch Very Vanilla CS. The world and sentiment are stamped in Versamark and embossed with the Gold Emboss Powder. The world was punched out with the 2-inch Circle Punch. I used the Gold Hoops Embellishments and Acorn Trinkets. The gold twine is from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack. The sequins are from the Artistry Blooms Sequin pack.
Viola! A nice “World of Thanks” card for all of you! Again, thank you for everything this year! Thank you Kylie and Bruno!
