Paper Crafting Blog Hop Cottage Wreaths


Welcome to the Paper Crafting Blog Hop! Our September 2022 blog hop includes Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrators from around the world...including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia!  Get ready to be wowed by a variety of creative projects and design styles!  You may have arrived from Annettes's Blog...what a great project!

Our projects this month focus on items from the July-December Mini Catalog.  I chose the Cottage Wreaths because it is a great bundle to use during the fall through the end of the year!  Below is the card that I created using the Cottage Wreaths Bundle.  The Designer Series Paper comes from the Annual's called Happy Forest Friends DSP.  My card base is Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock...I always forget that we have the Thick Cardstock in VANILLA too!

To get the autumnal look to the leaves I inked up the wreath in Crushed Curry Ink and then added some Cajun Craze ink with a Sponge Dauber. The wide ribbon is the Natural Finish 7/8" Ribbon and the bow is Linen Thread.  And of course, I had to add my FAVORITE embellishment...some of the gold Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins from the July-December Mini Catalog!

Thanks for following our blog hop this month!  Next up is Tracy's project!  Enjoy hopping around!
