Season to Season Wreath for the Pals Blog Hop

2015badge-4Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for September.  This month we are showing off our favorite new products from the new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  We hope you enjoy our projects!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from   Jennifer Spiller at Westside Paper Creations stop number 19 on the Pals Hop.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects.

One of my favorite items in the Holiday catalog was this new Season to Season Wreath Kit.  You make the wreath one time, the form and the printed leaf shapes are all included.  Then you create a banner or other decor for the wreath, changing it throughout the fall months.  I opted  not to purchase the coordinating stamp set and instead used the pieces included as well as some of my own creations to make my banners.

Stampin Up Season to Season Wreath Kit

For Fall, I created my own leaves using the Vintage Leaf stamp set and the coordinating framelit from the annual catalog.  I love making realistic leaves in the fall.  Stamp and cut out the leaves in yellow or green or light brown card stock.  I used crumb cake,  crushed curry and old olive. Then spritz with alcohol and crumple it up then open it back up again. When it is dry, sponge reds, greens, yellows, browns and oranges onto the leaf until it looks natural.

For the Halloween banner, I colored the bat shaped pieces with elegant eggplant and black.  I used paper doilys coated with black ink and crumpled around to make rosettes.

The final version is for Christmas.  I used the Christmas Tree punch outs that came with the kit and stamped them using the Festival of Trees garland and ornament stamps.  I also had some metallic frosted elements left over from 2014 and placed them on some of the trees.  The final touch was using the Real Red Pom Pom trim as the banner string.

I’m excited about this wreath.  I’m going to display it in my office at work and jazz up the place a little.

The next stop is Pamela Sadler at Stampin Pink Rose  number 21 on the Pals Blog Hop!  Thanks for visiting; I hope to see you on next month’s Pals Hop!
