I’ve had this idea in my head and it just HAD to come out! I really didn’t have time to spare to work on it today, but made it anyway! I’ve been working on getting ready for my big Rubber Stamp and Craft Sale this Saturday (if you are in the Columbus/Dublin, Ohio area…see the details below! Would love for you to stop by!)
I love the Cookie Cutter Christmas and Halloween sets…and the coordinating punch! I’m sure I’ll be using them a LOT!
I really was trying to work out how I could make a bale of straw for my scarecrow. I think it worked…what do you think?
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Delightful Dijon, folded in half.
- On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Early Espresso.
- At the bottom of the 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Whisper White, the image from Timeless Textures was stamped with Always Artichoke Ink for the ground.
- For the bale of straw, a rectangle of Crushed Curry was cut, then embossed with the Seaside Embossing folder BOTH ways. The edges were cut with paper snips and Delightful Dijon Ink was sponged on top. A couple pieces of Linen Thread were wrapped around the bale. It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The sky in the background was from one of the other images in Timeless Textures with Soft Sky Ink.
- The scarecrow from Cookie Cutter Halloween was stamped with Black Stazon on scrap Whisper White and watercolored with Dapper Denim, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake, Real Red Stampin’ Write Markers, then punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.
- A 1/8″ strip of Early Espresso was placed behind the scarecrow for the stick, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the bale of straw.
- The crow was stamped with Black Stazon on Whisper White and hand cut, then added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The small flowers were punch with the Blossom Builder Punch and Cajun Craze cardstock, with Perfect White Accent in the center.
- Happy Fall letters from Labeler Alphabet were stamped with Early Espresso Ink on scrap Whisper White, trimmed and added to the front.
So…what do you think? It turned out how I pictured in my head, so I was happy!
