Wonderful Quick Wreath Tag

Wild West Paper Arts Wonderful Quick Wreath Tag - 1What did you do on World Card Making Day?  Did you got a head start on holiday greetings?  The Wild West Tack Room was bustling with preparations for our 2nd Annual Build-A-Tag Party. The Wonderful Quick Wreath Tag is one of the samples created this weekend.

Our Build-A-Tag Party is an annual event to help everyone get some of their holiday tags and doo-dads done before the hectic season is in full swing.  It’s a marathon of sorts.  We save scraps, embellishments, old greeting cards, ribbon, and the like during the year and serve them up to you buffet style.  You make as many tags as possible in four hours, a real win-win.  Feel a sense of accomplishment and while we clear out the old to get ready for the new.

The Wonderful Quick Wreath Tag started with a card donated for the event.  The original card had the words “Season’s Greetings” embossed in gold across the bottom. As my good friend Janell would say,  I “cannibalized” the card by cutting it apart making as many elements as possible for guests to use.

Do you see what I see? Doesn’t the image look like it could be die-cut with the Wonderful Wreath Framelit?

Well, would you look at that.  Perfect!

Not too shabby, eh?  The Die-Cut “Joy”, also a part of the Wonderful Wreath Framelits set, adds the finishing touch.

If you don’t already have this set of Wonderful Wreath Framelits (#135851), purchase the Wonderous Wreath Bundle (#137624) and save 15%.  You’ll definitely want the coordinating stamp set.  Do a quick check on Pinterest to find some fantastic projects made from this bundle.

It’s so much fun to use scraps and tools to re-purpose something instead of throwing it away.  Saves time too!

What will you do with your scraps, build a Wonderful Quick Wreath Tag?

This project, as well as many other ideas will be on display for inspiration at the Build-A-Tag Party on November 1, 2014. Join us for four hours of fun! Click here for more information.  You’ll have a great time!

Original Top Note Scarecrow Revisted

Original Top Note Scarecrow

While cruising through Pinterest recently, I was honored to see that my original top note scarecrow has been revisited and CASEd over and over since September 2012.  What a surprise that he’s still going strong, just like the Top Note Bigz Die (#113463).

While reminiscing I noticed that four out of five of these characters were made in the fall of 2012.  The sheriff was made in the fall of 2013.  Guess I’d better get with the program.

I’ve been asked lately for instructions for making the scarecrow.  Here’s the scoop.  The scarecrow tutorial is included as a bonus for those that donate to my “Stamp Out Alzheimer’s” campaign.  This year taking part in the walk wasn’t possible.  However, we have until October 31st to donate to the event.  If you missed out on what you need to do, please visit my original post by clicking here.  All the links for donating to my Alzheimer’s fundraising campaign as well as instructions on how to get the tutorials start on that post.

Thank you for joining me on this trip down memory lane with the original top note scarecrow and friends.

What will the next Top Not Character be?  Any ideas?

Thank you so much for helping me and

Grateful for You

Wild West Paper Arts Grateful for You PPA222

Grateful for You Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge PPA222 at Wild West Paper ArtsHappy Junior Friday!  You know what that means…. Challenge!  Today’s challenge is Color Challenge PPA222 from Pals Paper Arts Design Team 1.  Perfect combo for your fall gratitude cards.  Which brings me to another point.  This is post number 500!  I’m so grateful for you my loyal followers.

Wild West Paper Arts has had some stalls and restarts, ups and downs and inside outs the last couple of years and you’re still here.  Thank you!

Now, back to the challenge at hand.  This card was super fun to make.  It’s one of those projects that keeps growing.  Know what I mean?

Looking at the color palette, Early Espresso was the choice for a foundation to make Calypso Coral and So Saffron POP off the page. For a little texture the base was embossed with the new Filigree Frame Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#135818)

Next, a stamp that shows gratitude to celebrate the 500th blog post for Wild West Paper Arts.  Hmm, Merry Everything (#135071 clear, #135068 wood) will do just fine.  Especially when paired with the Note Tag Punch (#135860). I saved 15% on the bundle!  Wahoo!  You’ll find it on page 13 of the 2014 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! The “Grateful for You” image was heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder (#109129) then punched out.

The tag needed a bit of help from the other two colors and Fun Fall Framelits (#135856) to stand out.  Of course, this was also purchased in the bundle for the 15% savings. Click here to see another project created with the Fall Fest Stamp Set/Fun Fall Framelits Bundle (#137628).

Dimension was added to the leaves by embossing them with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#127821), then sponged with Calypso Coral and So Saffron Classic Ink.  FYI Classic Ink Pads are on sale through October 6th.  Click here to check out yesterday’s post for more information.

Last, a double bow made of Linen Thread (#104199) was added to the top and little dots of Gold Dazzling Details (#133755) were placed within the filigree edges.

There you have it.
