As I type up my post on Saturday, it’s raining!! Lovely, heavy rain filling up my water tanks!! Just the sort of rain we need. And of course, a rainy day makes for the perfect crafting day!
We are casing the Festive Farmhouse section, pages 12-17, of the 2018 Holiday Catalogue.
As you may have noticed, I love use Stampin’ Blends! And there are 6 new combo packs in the Holiday Catalogue. And yes, I already have them all!!
I was drawn to the sample on page 15 so that I can use my blends and the Joy & Noel stamp set!
Now don’t you just love the chicken wire elements in the background. Well, I don’t have it yet (but I think I might need to get it soon!) so I decided to use the Subtles Textured embossing folder instead.
I stamped the image twice and cut out one using the largest oval from the Stitched Shape framelits. I then coloured both with the Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Mango Meloday Stampin’ Blends (all are new colours). I then fussy cut out some of the leaves and flowers and popped them up using dimensionals. To make the word a little darker, I coloured with the basic black Stampin’ Blend.
I added Poppy Parade Textured Weave ribbon behind the sentiment oval and popped it up using dimensionals.
Next up is the lovely Julia.
