COUNTRY HOME PITCHER

Before you go any further, PLEASE READ THIS:  WE WILL NOT BE RUNNING THE ART LAYER THRU THE SUBTLE EMBOSSING FOLDER AS SHOWN ON THE IMAGE BELOW.  The bouquet is not as distinctive because of the embossing folder I used.  However, I am out of time to make a second card and process the blog.  Today is my birthday and things have been busy-busy-busy.

WP_20181028_15_23_11_Pro (2)This picture simply does not do this card justice.  The galvanized metallic paper is gorgeous after embossing with the “Tin Tile” dynamic embossing folder. I have sponged the metallic paper with Basic Gray to make the embossing stand out.  However, the paper is beautiful without the sponging.  The chicken wire element is to the right of the card.  I adhered it by squirting some of my taking my favorite Tombo Adhesive Multipurpose glue on my silicone craft sheet, dipping a sponge dauber in the glue and running the dauber over the back of the chicken wire.  This worked perfectly.  The fall bouquet is stamped on Whisper White and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  By embossing the white cs, the bouquet is muted and doesn’t jump out the way it should – so no embossing the bouquet!.  The pitcher was cut with the Stamp’n’Cut, colored with Stampin’ Blends and adhered with glue dots.  Wink of Stella was brushed on the bouquet and areas of the pitcher. The art piece is mounted to black cs and adhered to the card front with dimensionals.   Finally, Braided Linen Trim is wrapped around the front with a simple shoestring bow. This Thanksgiving card I will be proud to send to friends and family!

November Stamp is right around the corner – Thursday, November 1 from 1 – 7 pm, Friday, November 2 from 2 – 7 pm, and Saturday, November 3 from 9 AM – 2 PM.  Please note the Saturday hours.  I hope you can come.  The class fee is the same – $12 for any 4 cards, and $2.50 for additional cards.  Please let me know if you will be attending and which cards you would like to make.  Looking forward to seeing you.
