Artisan Wednesday Wow


Well welcome back to our Artisan Wednesday Wow Blog Hop! I hope you have been truly inspired and enjoying parading through all our projects each week! Aren't these gals uber talented?!
Ok so like most of you I was inspired by last weeks projects so I had to get my Trick or Treat on...

I also needed something fun to teach my Technique Tuesday gals so they made this little sweet treat box. Hopefully they didn't fill it with tricks...LOL! I know you have seen that fun ribbon trick before but it worked perfectly with this project so I went with it. If anyone has not seen this please leave a comment & I will elaborate.
Ok just in case you find you have some left over Halloween DSP & Washi tape I put together a fun card with matching envelope using the FABULOUS new Envelope Punch Board!
Ok time to hop over to see what fun Alanna has cooked up for us...

Welcome Back! Wasn't Jen's project FUN!
We got a bunch of great stuff this month but I especially loved that our box contained this beautiful butterfly stamp set! Here is the card I created for this month's Stampin Up Facebook post...

I know everyone else went with an Autumn or Halloween thing so I went with a little something different.
But just for good measure how about a Thanksgiving card! Yep It's almost time to start thinking about that...YIKES!!

OK... Lets go visit Alanna!

Holy Cow I can't believe how fast Wednesday rolls around! Hope you were dazzled by Jen's adorable project! If not just keep hoppin around until you get to it! I was pretty sure the other gals would have you loaded up on great Halloween ideas so I went a different route.
First off let me just say the Build a Banner kit Totally ROCKS!
Did you see Cathy's project last week? Squeally Cute!
Anyway as most of you know I love the vintage look so that's the direction I took with my banner...Let's take a look!

First I stamped the pieces with Black Staz On. Then I filled my spritzer with 25 drops of Baked Brown Sugar re-inker & spritzed the whole banner then I mixed up 40 drops of the same color & added the stripes. TIP: When using the stencils you don't want to spray to heavily or when you lift the stencil it all runs together & looks like a hot mess. So hold your spritzer above your project & spritz a few times...stop before it looks dark enough. TRUST ME. Resist the urge to add "just a little bit more".  If your colors are not dark enough add more re inker don't spritz more. Test it out on scratch paper before starting. Also make sure your banner & stencil are laying flat before you start spritzing.
Ok enough reliving my banner nightmare for your learning pleasure. LOL. On to the matching card! Again stop BEFORE its enough when spritzing the cardstock as well.

Hope you enjoyed my projects!
Lets go visit Alanna!
