Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My 3D project for today’s Blog Hop is a Fall Pumpkin Wreath. I love decorating my wreath for the season! Years ago I purchased a silk wreath for the barn door that is the entry to my craft room. I hung it on the door and immediately realized that this wreath had to be decorated. Ever since that day I’ve kept decorating my wreath for every new season, and I use Stampin’ Up! products!
For my fall wreath I chose to decorate it with 3D pumpkins. The pumpkins are created with the Apple Builder Punch. For each pumpkin, I punched out 5 pumpkins from Mango Melody card stock. Fold each pumpkin in half and burnish with a bone folder. Taking the first folded pumpkin, adhere the outside right side to the outside left side of another folded pumpkin.
Continue adhering the outsides of the 5 pumpkins, stopping before you adhere the last one. The pumpkin is then flat on the back. Punch a stem from Soft Suede cardstock, using the Apple Builder Punch. Adhere to the center back of each pumpkin with Glue Dots. Using the smallest leaf die from the Stitched Leaves Dies, cut a leaf using Granny Apple Green card stock. Adhere also to the back of the pumpkin using Multipurpose Glue.
Create watercolored leaves using Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and ink refills. Cut open one of our Clear Translucent Medium Envelopes. Cut off one side and lay flat. Drop just a few dots of Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Rich Razzleberry ink from ink refill bottles. Spray lightly with a Stampin’ Spritzer and let the ink run – just slightly. Press the watercolor paper onto the spritzed ink over and over until you have the paper partially covered. Leave some areas white. Let dry and cut out leaves with Stitched Leaves Dies. Glue groupings of two and three leaves together with Multipurpose Glue.
Adhere the pumpkins and the leaf groupings to the wreath with tiny clothespins. (This way you can switch out the decor with each season.) Tie bows onto the wreath with the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon. ENJOY!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!
