Happy Stampers Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Blog Hop
Welcome to our Blog Hop, thanks for stopping by.
I have two fall projects (and a bonus) created with the Wondrous Wreath stamp set. I wanted to show you that this set is versatile. You can use it for more than Christmas projects. It just takes a little switching out of the colors.
In this case I chose to use the baby wipe technique because it allows me to add spots of color quickly without coloring in each individual leaf. You can view a You Tube video of this technique here. I like to make multiple cards at one time when I am using this technique so that I get the best use of my supplies.
I stamped the kraft paper background with the acorn trio from the "For All Things" stamp set. I used VersaMark watermark ink.
For the banner I used the banner and sentiment from the "For All Things" stamp set. I used Hello Honey ink and stamped off once before stamping the banner onto Whisper White card stock. I used Rich Razzleberry ink for the sentiment, also for the ribbon and Rich Razzleberry card stock for the small pennant.The ribbon is 1/8" Crushed Curry Taffeta.
The second project is a bag topper. I used a cellophane bag, but the kraft paper bags in the catalog would be cute too! Do you like the foggy effect on the bag? That is what happens when the room temperature is over 90 degrees and the cookies come out of the freezer and straight into the bag! It's a frosty effect, just for fall ☺.
I used the Tangelo Twist ink for the ribbon on this wreath. I punched a circle of Rich Razzleberry card stock and attached it behind the wreath so that it would 'pop'. For this project I chose the gold Baker's twine as the ribbon. I attached it to a base created with Kraft paper and the Window Frames collection framelit which is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink and the swirl stamp from Everything Eleanor.
For the bonus project I created a place card holder that is also a treat box.I used kraft paper, my pre-made wreath (remember, I stamped all the wreaths at once to get the most out of my supplies), and Hello Honey 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon. Here's the video tutorial that I followed to create this box.
It is quite easy and would really look cute on a Thanksgiving table next to each place setting.
