happy wednesday :) my favorite time of the year, autumn is here YES! i hope you've been enjoying our projects over at the cardztv gallery . it sure is a lot of fun creating and using mary's awesome fun stamps. for today i made 4 projects i hope at least one will give you some inspiration :)
my first project i made is a wreath
i used an old sizzix embossing folder for the scarecrow. i just embossed him onto cardstock then cut him out and colored in. the leaves are cuttlebug. the pumpkins are just round unfinished wood circles that i colored broke a craft pick and used that for the stems. added buttons and a birdhouse some beads and dried floral stuff i have in my house. i also made a little ribbon flower out of crinkle ribbon. i got this from 3 girls jam
i used this cute lil sentiment from the set "country at heart"
for my next project i altered a lunch sack
i punched along the top with a martha punch , the leaves are cuttlebug i used felt for these. added some ribbons and a couple little things. easy peasy but i think sweet. i havent added anything inside yet but will come up with a baked goodie when the time comes for me to use it. i used "happy days" for this sentiment.
my next project is an altered mini pringles can
i took off the outer paper and then first covered it in some mulberry paper. you could use tissue paper or just ink or paint this instead. do whatever your creative mind tells ya to ;) i then covered that in some fall paper, tore it and bent it so the mulberry paper showed through. i added some lace ribbon to the top and bottom. then i added some dried floral stuff, leaves i cut from felt using my cuttlebug and some pins. the cute angle one i purchased from pinque peacock .sorry i didnt get an upclose of that, but i already gave this to a friend so i can't ask for it back ;) i think if you ckick on the picture it makes it huge so you should be able to make it out better. anyway.....
for the fun sentiment i used "brew ha ha "
and for my last project for today....
i altered a burlap sack.
again for the pumpkins i just colored in some unfinished wood then broke some craft picks for the stems and added some bendable covered wirey stuff. geesh i forget what this is called.. i hate that! lol i found it by the cross stitching stuff at hobby lobby. i added some cute lil flower pins. the leaves are leftovers from my cricut. i filled it up with some candy pumpkins and pumpkin seeds. YUM!
