I posted this Framed Sampler yesterday but didn't give the many details on each swap yet. That's for today's post.
This is a 12" sheet of Blackberry bliss card stock that I scored about 1 1/2" from each edge; twice. The 2 1/4" squares are mounted on an 8" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and that is on an 8 1/2" square of Crushed Curry card stock.
Here are the close ups of the squares:
From left to right - Laurel did the cute Indian Owl using the Owl Builder punch and Color Me Autumn dsp, Annette the center using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set with Cajun Craze ink and Marilyn the beautiful leaves on the right. They look so real! She cut the leaves using the Autumn Accents die and scored veins on each one, stamped on it using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp and then crumpled it up. Finally she sponged it. Beautiful!
Left to right - Lorrie did the left one with the Fall Fest bundle stamp set, coordinating dies and wood elements, Brandy did the cutest punch art Turkey using the owl, circles and scallop circle punches, and Karen did the 'I Love Fall' square. All very unique and I just love how they all work together so well when you have a common color theme.
Left is Candy's using the For All Things set in Crushed Curry & Soft Suede ink. Middle is mine using the Fall Fest bundle. I stamped the background using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp and made tendrils by cutting thin pieces of Mossy Meadow card stock and winding them around a thin paint brush. Hold them a few seconds tightly and they keep the shape pretty well. On the far right is Mary's using the For All Things set in Blackberry Bliss, Soft Suede, Color Me Autumn washi tape and a gold metal button.
Another amazing sampler we made by pooling our craftiness! I so love it!
