Hello sweet friends and welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. Today we are making projects using fall colors and a homemade embellishment. I made a card and tried some 'new' things for me. I always like to try different techniques and ideas.
First of all I wanted to mention the ribbon that I used. We were given some to use and it is BEAUTIFUL. The colors are rich and the there is just this shine and shimmer to the ribbon. It is hand died crinkle ribbon from Patsy's Prairie Bird Boutique. It is has a fun shabby chic look and crinkle to it and yet it can also be ironed flat as well for a whole different look. I love the versatility. For this card I was going for a flatter look so I ironed some but I'm excited to try it in its fun crinkly form as well.
My handmade embellishments are my rolled flowers. I hand cut the spiral shape and rolled these up. Pretty simple and easy but it is the first time I've actually done it and I love the way they turned out. I inked them a little and added some glimmer mist.
The beautiful sentiment and the die it is stamped on are by Emma at My Creative Time. They are the Mixed Holiday Greetings and the Stitched Oval Die.
All the cuts came from the Martha Stewart's Seasonal Cake Cricut cartridge. I made the leaf border into a frame by welding it in my Gypsy. The pumpkin is also from this cartridge. I stamped and heat embossed the pumpkin with a background stamp by Market Street Stamps. The background stamp is called Paisley. Other than that I just did a little inking with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
Creative Inspiration Paints will be our sponsor for this week. One random winner will get to pick out five colors of their gorgeous paint. HERE is the link to their store.
