Welcome to Septembers Stampin Friends blog hop! This month were saying it with sentiments. Sometimes the words say it all so this month we are letting them shine. I hope you’re joining me from Maureen. Rauchfuss’s blog! Her projects were great weren’t they? Be sure to continue onto Joe Blackman‘s blog and leave us a comment. We love to hear your thoughts on our projects.
For my projects! I did something I normally don’t do and that was because I didn’t have a sentiment for exactly what I wanted. I just grabbed my computer typed up the greeting and printed it out on my printer. Then I took the Stitched with the Whimsy dyes framed it around the greeting and cut it out! I sponge coordinating colors around the words to just give it a little bit of a pop. I used the Bewitching Bundle, stamped and punched out 2 hats with the coordinating punch! I used the second one on the bag below, I colored it in using an Orchid Oasis, Pumpkin Pie, and Parakeet Party, markers stamped the boots and fussy cut them out, I finished the hat off with a bow using the Metallic Mesh ribbon.and finished off with a few rhinestones colored with the same ink!
Next I made this little treat bag out 6x12 sheet of gingham cottage DSP paper. On the 12” side on the top, score at 2 5 3/4 7 3/4 and 11 1/2 and turn on 6” side and score at 2. Cut up on your score lines io to the 2” making sure your 12 inch side of the paper on top. I cut a 2 x 3 3/4 strip again using the gingham cottage DSP and this time I chose the pumpkin pie plaid. I flagged the ends and stapled it to the side of the bag. I took my hole punch and punched out to little holes and added some bakers twine in black to hold the bag shut. I also printed out the greeting and trimmed it to 1 1/2x 2 added some rhinestones.
I hope you enjoy my projects, be sure to leave a comment and visit Jo Blackman’s Blog next.
