OSAT October Blog Hop Halloween or Fall Theme


Welcome to our October OSAT Blog Hop! If you got here by way of Marisa Gunn I can't believe the amazing creations she did! She ALWAYS makes me say "Wow" and sometimes it is hard to do!! The lovely Tenia Nelson is also guest hopping with us this month! I am hoping she will want to say!!

Well as you can see this month's hop is Fall or Halloween theme! I have started creating for a local craft fair so it was hard for me to take a step back so to speak from making Christmas stuff to making Fall stuff again!  I hope you love my creations this month! I'll give you the scoop...


As you can see, I broke out my retired Sweater Weather DSP. Would you believe I somehow had an unopened pack?


So my lovely card color scheme was made with the Sweater Weather DSP colors. I started with a rich base of Chocolate Chip Card Stock. The second layer is Crushed Curry. The Very Vanilla Card Stock was stamped with Chocolate Chip using Lovely As A Tree. The banner at the top was layered on 1" Strip of the Sweater Weather DSP you will see why I used this in just a moment. I then took about 3/4" Strip of Very Vanilla and used the Banner Triple punch on both ends. I took the Very Vintage Designer Buttons and use a gold Sharpie! YES!!! A SHARPIE!!! I thought they didn't really look right plain! The cute little bows were using linen thread... 
Now for the best thing ever!! I am going to be honest when I woke up Wednesday morning with NOTHING done for this hop, I was thinking Halloween... Thank heavens for emails from Splitcoast Stampers because they gave me my A-HA moment!!


Is this not totes adorbs!?!?!? You can get the tutorial here !! I'll tell you what I used! The DSP is Sweater Weather. Instead of the spools in the tutorial I used a wine cork! I used Old Olive Card stock to wrap the cork and make the leaves with retired Blossom Builder Punch. The "Vines" were made using 1/4" strips of Old Olive curled using a pencil. The bow was made using our retired Hemp Twine and I hot glued the button to the front of it. "Thanks" is from the Expressions Natural Elements. I used the Stampin' Up Doily on bottom over a burlap circle I cut with Circle collection framelit after using modge podge... 

Phew!! All in a days work!!! I am so glad you stopped by! I can't wait for you to see our Guest Hoppers Tenia Nelson's goodies! She gave me a sneak peak! 
Have a great rest of your week!

    4. Oh my gosh, these are such sweet projects!!! The cork is genius (However, my favorite wine is a screw-top, what will I do????) That may be good otherwise I could have a serious collection of corks and my house would be filled with decoratvie paper pumpkins! :) But seriously--these are delightful projects and I really want to make the card--LOVE that you used a sharpie!! TOTES ADORBS is right!
