September Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop

Don't you just love the Wacky Watercooler Hop?!
Kath's hop projects were wonderful.  If you missed
her blog, click to go back.

This month, we are creating projects for 
Fall, including Halloween or Thanksgiving.

 My first project is a Fall Banner.
I love the ease with which banner components can be
created with the Party Pennants Die (p 232).  These
pennants can be used for cards, banners or gift tags.
The other thing that I am having a ball with is the 
Wondrous Wreath set with coordinating Framelits 
(p 9 of the Holiday Mini).  These wreaths
can be used for almost any season or event, by simply
changing the color combinations. 

I used the Little Letters Framelits (p 228) to create
the "FALL" letters, which fit perfectly within the wreaths.

The Fall Fest set (p 46 of the Holiday Mini), with coordinating
framelits enabled a scattering of leaves that accented the wreaths.  
Woodgrain texture was added to the banners, as well as sentiments
from the Good Greetings (Hostess special offer) set.
This is really a pretty simple project, once you organize the "bits".

My second project is just a simple, elegant way to wish friends
a Happy Thanksgiving!
I paired an old favorite, Lovely As A Tree with
Work of Art to create a fall watercolor impression.  
The sentiment comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes (p 18).

I hope that you have enjoyed my projects.
Now hop on over to Terri's blog to see her wonderful creations!

Snowflake Card Thinlit Die

The Snowflake Card Thinlit on page 22 of the Holiday
catalog is a very cheery option, with a snowflake that
swings as you open the card.
Stampin' Up! has provided a video for this product:

SU demonstrates a technique for creating a snowflake backdrop.

For this project, I used Brushed Silver card stock for
the snowflake (p 193 in main catty), with sequins from
the Frosted Sequins kit on page 22 of the Holiday Mini.
Add a little Designer Series Paper and Silver Ribbon and
you are set!

Get Your Santa On Green

This is another Get Your Santa On sample.
I like this set because you can do just a little bit
of coloring with your Blendabilities!
 The colors included on this card are Garden Green,
Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and the
Trim the Tree DSP pack.
