It is a Fall/Outdoor/Halloween kind of month!
I LOVE FALL! Finally getting some relief in our 90 degree temperatures - and I'm loving that too. So for a recent class we made a beautiful peek-a-boo wreath card using the Beautiful Autumn Bundle of products from page 45 of the August-December Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog. Let me tell you - this is only two of many projects you are going to see me make with this suite - as it is just simply amazing! In fact, check out yesterday's post HERE. Then continue down in this post and you'll see a lovely 3D item using this bundle.
I had stamped and cut out many different elements for this wreath - five maple leaves stamped with Soft Sea Foam on Soft Sea Foam cardstock; five Oak Leaves stamped with Cinnamon Cider on Very Vanilla Cardstock and five acorns stamped with Soft Suede on Crumb Cake cardstock. These were all punched out with the three punches in this bundle. Next I stamped five of the elm outlines and inside with Cajun Craze and fussy cut them.
But, I love this bundle sooooo much and the beautiful DSP that coordinates with it - Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper - that I decided to alter a cute little stand up frame that I found at the local .99 Store.
I traced around the clip at the top with lightweight paper. Then cut out four strips of the DSP. On the top one, I cut out the traced opening to fit around the clip.
After adhering all four strips in the pattern I wanted, with Tombow Liquid Glue - I added this wonderful sentiment from the bundle, some braided trim; and a cute little punched out acorn. Just loving how it turned out.
I hope you like it too and found some inspiration - altering wooden 3D items is so easy and has so much impact.
