Welcome to The September Mix Up Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop. As you make your rounds through the blog tour you will see fabulous projects from the Holiday and Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogs.
Before I share my projects with you, I want to remind you this is a circular Blog Hop. That means that wherever you begin, if you continue to go to the “next” blog on the list, you will eventually wind up right where you first started. You will find the “next” button (and the “previous” button – if you want to go backwards) at the end of this post. The “home” button will give you a listing of all participating blogs.
I know you’ll enjoy seeing all the other blogs too. Happy hopping!
For this first card I used the bird stamp from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set which is found in the Annual Catalog. Can’t you image the birds talking?
The Basic Gray piece of card stock is dry embossed using the Woodland Textured Impressions EF which is from the Holiday Catalog.
I stamped the tree from Sheltering Tree set on the Calypso Coral. This set is also in the Annual Catalog.
Let’s shake things up a bit! To create this shaker card I used a set from the Holiday Catalog, Happy Scenes. The opening is cut using the large leaf die from the Leaflets Framelits Dies.
I embossed the image with Black Embossing Powder prior to water coloring the sky and ground. When I was done water coloring I colored in the pumpkins and leaves with markers.
My biggest challenge with this card was the beads, they kept sticking to the acetate sheet – static clean!!
Wonderland is a fabulous set found in the Holiday Catalog. The trees stamp alone make a beautiful card or can be used with so many other stamps. I posted a “Walk Down Memory Lane” card earlier this week using a retired set and the Wonderland set. You can check it out here, it is the second card of the post.
I wish I could have capture the elegance of this card with my camera.
I first embossed the trees with White Embossing Powder, stamped again (offsetting a bit) with VersaMark, and then embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I used a Silver Foil Sheet for the layer behind the stamped image.
Thank you for stopping by My Tanglewood Cottage. I hope you were inspired!
