I’m starting off the Hop with two projects for each of today’s sets – Brick Wall and Bells on Bobtail.
My first project is a flap card, using MFP Groovin’ Grape, Snow Storm Smooth; and Basic Grey Wisteria DP. The images were stamped with Palette Jardin Moss, clear embossed and colored with Copic markers. The bow is not really tied, just folded at strategic points, tied a with a little string, and decorated with a square brad. I wrapped it around the flap and attached with sticky tape.
In looking for a 3-D project for today, I came across the tutorial for the laced luminaria on SCS. Not having the Sizzix scallop circle die, I used my Spellbinders scallop circle die – using cardboard rather than the coaster for the base, and covered it with some MFP Hurricane Gray cardstock, stamped with the Brick Wall image. I stamped the flowering vine on the vellum before running it through the crimper, and then laced up the four pieces with some narrow red and white ribbon.
I found the layout for this card at Page Maps. The small jingle bells from Bells on Bobtail are stamped with ColorBox silver pigment ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder. The two red bows are colored with Copic markers, but the green one is paper-pieced using a scrap of green plaid DP. The various smaller circles are punched from several different papers from Basic Grey Jovial DP.
I have been wanting to do a stage card for quite some time. Following the directions I found online, I cut out several trees and the horse and sleigh; and then I placed them strategically on the “stage.” Because the inside of the card was so “busy,” the front is relatively simple. The only stamping on the front is the sentiment.
I thought this salt & pepper couple might have been out in the woods with that horse and sleigh and cut down a couple of Christmas trees.
Be sure to visit the rest of the team to see what they did with this set. And remember, you have a chance to win one of the stamp sets to be released next month.
