Happy Thanksgiving...October Friends of WMS Waltz 48

Mona Pendleton | Monday, October 17, 2011 @ 12:00 AM | ,

Hi there! Welcome to the October Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz! This month, the theme is Gratitude/Thanksgiving. You can find all the details in the Playroom of the WMS Forum ~ click HERE.
I made a little gift set for my sweet sister Tina. I stamped my own background paper by inking up various foliage from Blessed by You with from Rangers Autumn Collection of Distress inks along with one of the beautiful text images from Text - It. The treat bag was made using Claire's  FREEBIE Three Kings Boxes. After cutting the template, for a bit of variety, I used a die template from Classic Triple Scallop to create a pretty scalloped edge along the top replacing the original edge.
After watching Tim work his magic with these inks, I knew I needed them! LOL That man could sell me tar off a shingle!!!
As I was playing around with my stamps and inks creating my project, the light bulb went off! I pulled out some Spellbinders Craft Foil Jewel Tones only to discover that the purple and orange foil coordinates beautifully with the Autumn Collection Distress inks!
Love the detail revealed in the foliage when the foil is slightly sanded:
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you enjoyed my projects today. Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Blessed by You, Peace and Plenty, Text - It
Dies & Machine: Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop, Labels Eleven, Labels Eighteen, Assorted Leaves
Template: Waltzingmouse FREEBIE Three Kings Boxes
Other: Spellbinders Jewel Tone Premium Craft Foil

Ooo weee! I have been eyeing up those Distress Inks, and now my resolve is gone. Just gone...curses, Mona! What a gorgeous autumn gift set for your sister! I love how the purple just brings the other colors to life. Those leaves are absolutely SPECTACULAR! That Three Kings box isn't just for Christmas is it? Looks awesome here!

Cathy Weber said...

Wow. Too much to comment on it all, but that treat box is so cute, never saw that one before and I love it. Also, the foil leaves technique is so pretty. I love all the distressing on the paper edges of your cards. I am already working on my Nov waltz project and guess what...it is a CASE of one of your projects! Now, hopefully I have guessed the theme correctly! I will be totally messed up if I have guessed wrong! Love your project today.

Stamped background, sewing, stamped leaves on the background, foil leaves as a focal point. Sigh ..... I want to have your crafting talent when I grow up.
