Welcome to another Artisan Blended Season blog hop for lots more inspiration and ideas. The Blended Season Bundle is available for the month of August and is an exclusive ‘out of publication’ bundle, meaning August is the time to get your hands on this beautiful stamp set and dies as they are not in the main catalogue and will not be appearing in the Autumn/Winter catalogue. The Stamp Set has images for all seasons so you will get plenty of use from this set.
For this month I was focusing Autumn or Fall (depending on where you are in the world). I have use the Stamparatus to create this wreath, stamping in versamark and then embossing in gold. I have created two of the wreaths, one as the front panel for the card and a second which I have fussy cut out to layer on to the pillow box.
I have used the Kraft Pillow Box (page 193) as a template for drawing around to create this pillow box from the Broadway Bound Speciality Papers. I have then cut out the different leaves from the Stitched Season Framelits in various foil sheets (Gold, Cooper & Champagne), and layered these together with the Leaves Trinkets to create the wreath.
The sentiment has been stamped out and cut using the Stitched Shape Framelits (such a staple item in my craft room & the winner of most used dies!) which has been added to the box with a swoosh of the gold cord.
For the card I have layered up the same pieces from the foil sheets and the dies with the Leaves Trinkets and added the centre piece with the Gold Cord
