Now for more current things…

The New Occasions Mini and Sale-A-Bration are in full swing. I had a blast playing with some the products that I earned for free from the SAB catalog (every $50 order earns you a free product). I used the “Home Sweet Home Décor Elements” along with the “Every Day Enchantment” Designer Series Paper to make this cute wall hanging. I did not do to much planning and just went for it. The “Home Sweet Home” is on the glass and the art is behind giving it a nice 3D effect.

I used the small circle punch from the “Itty Bitty Punch Pack” to make the scallops around the door. I sponged Soft Sued on all the edges to give it the worn look.

 The tree was cut from Soft Sued Card Stock with a hobby blade and I added leaves for the “Bird Builder “ punch and flowers from the “Itty Bitty Punch Pack”  (Calypso Coral CS with Poppy Parade ink on the edges.)

The hills were done with DSP and CS and the edges were sponged with Luck Limeade then distressed with the distressing tool. The tree trunk covers the seam in the DSP.

The clouds turned out so cute! I traced the clouds from the  “On Board Merry Medley” pack then cut them out. I then embossed them with the “Swiss Dot” embossing folder and Big Shot. I rubber my white craft ink pad directly onto the paper to highlight the edges. Before adhering them down, I stamped the vine from the “Vintage Vogue” Stamp set to give the clouds that wispy look.
