Hello Everyone ~ I love my door with a Stampin’ Up Swirly Scribbles Wreath Idea!
Well I am off to Orlando today. This will be an experience as we have a small airport here in New Bern that I am flying out of. They have smaller planes which I will take to Atlanta and from there go to Orlando on a larger jet. This will be an adventure for me. I don’t leave until 2:00 so I don’t need to be at the airport until around 1:00 as they are so small. The best part is I am only 15 minutes maximum from the airport. I am so used to being 2 hours away and then allowing 2 hours to get through security. Will be interesting! This morning I will be finishing up my packing, cleaning my bathroom, and making sure all my blog posts are ready. It will be a busy morning!
It is that time of the month when we have our Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge. This time we have an inspiration challenge.
When I looked at the board, I was immediately drawn to the door. I decided to see if I could make my own door. I began with the wreath. To give my wreath some depth I used the large circle shape from the Swirly Scribble thinlits to cut out 2 of them ~ one in Crumb Cake and one in Early Espresso. I set both wreaths on top of each other and determined where I could intertwine them. I cut the Crumb Cake wreath up under the bow and pushed the cut part through one of the holes of the Early Espresso wreath. I glued the 2 pieces back together. Then I found an area underneath the bottom holly sprig and cut it apart. I wove it through the Early Espresso wreath and glued it back to together. I stamped my 2 holly sprigs using Shaded Spruce and used a blender pen to color the leaves. The berries were colored with the Lovely Lipstick marker. The bow was created using the Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon and attached over top the join of the wreath with a glue dot. I added the 2 sprigs with glue dots also making sure the bottom sprig was over top the join at the bottom. Now to do my door. I used a Very Vanilla card base and sponged the edges using Soft Suede. I cut you strips from Very Vanilla to mimic the panels on the door. I sponged the edges of those. These were attached with glue dots to give it just a little dimension. Next I took my sponge and swiped it across the card base to add some more weathering to the back of the door. To finish off my card I attached the wreath using glue dots. Here is my completed Stampin’ Up Swirly Scribbles Wreath Idea.
