Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Wednesday, signaling that we’re cresting the hill and getting ready to slide on into another weekend! And – in the case of this Wednesday….is one week and a day from the kick-off of the 2016 Holiday Catalog ordering season. I’m thinking about putting my Christmas tree up, just in solidarity!
Just kidding. That would be crazy.
I do have a totally unrelated question? Does anyone know how many times a week Bachelor in Paradise is on? Appears to me to be on every night. And…how many Bachelor spin-offs are there these days? Bachelors of the Serengeti? Bachelor on the Orient Express? Bachelor VS Predator? Bachelor – The Bores Awaken?
Thank goodness for Big Bang Theory – no matter how many times I watch it – it’s just flat funny! 🙂 Perfect background noise for blog typing!
My card for today showcases another couple of stamp sets coming to you soon in the Holiday Catalog. Cookie Cutter Halloween and Basket of Wishes. As I’ve mentioned before – both Cookie Cutter Halloween and Cookie Cutter Christmas use the fun Cookie Cutter Builder punch – which you’ll be able to purchase as a bundle with Cookie Cutter Christmas! 🙂
I combined these with some Petals & Paisleys DSP and this is what I got. Take a look-see:
My layout came from the design sketch challenge #62 at Stamp Ink Paper.
I did a little something different with this card – I started with my Delightful Dijon card base and ran the front of it thru the Big Shot in the Petal Burst TIEF. It’s a pretty enough folder that the de-bossed side – visible when you open the card – looks just as good as the front! I wrapped a piece of the new-in-the-Annual-Catalog Mint Macaron 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon around the card – securing it in the front with a couple of Glue Dots. That way the inside of the card still looks pretty when you open it! 🙂
I SNAILd a piece of the Petals & Paisleys DSP to a Mint Macaron mat and SNAILd it directly to the card front. Then I went ahead and made my sentiment, stamping the words in Cajun Craze ink using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set. I snipped the word out and adhered them to the card front with Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.
I cut a circle of Very Vanilla and a mat of Mint Macaron with two dies from the Circles Layering Framelits. I used my Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Marker to add some faux stitches, then I SNAILd them together and popped them on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Using Crumb Cake ink, I stamped the basket and veggies images from Basket of Wishes on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I used Blender Pens to color the image – using Crumb Cake for the basket, and Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi for the vegetables. Then I fussy cut the whole thing. I did cut the leaves but I did not cut the little curly-do’s. I mean, I’m good, but come on! 🙂 Using my stylus, I rounded the basket a little and set it aside.
The little scarecrow dude from Cookie Cutter Halloween is also stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla. He’s colored with Blender Pens and Mint Macaron, Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry. I punched him out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch and then adhered him to the card with some Liquid Glue and a Stampin’ Dimensional under his head. Then I popped the basket over the top of him with Dimensionals. And I added a couple of curly-do’s with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker. And that was it for the front of the card.
On the inside, I added another little scarecrow – using the exact same coloring technique as the dude on the front – to the corner of a Very Vanilla Panel.
I SNAILd it to a Mint Macaron mat and then into my Delightful Dijon card base, and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got one more Cookie Cutter Halloween scarecrow on the front…
…and a custom envelope flap cover from another little bit of Petals & Paisleys DSP.
Et Voila! Yet another group of tempting goodies arriving soon in the Holiday Catalog! Hope you like!
