It's that time again...time for another Blog Hop from the Wacky Watercooler gang. This month it's all about the holidays! From Halloween through New Year's, let's see what our friends have come up with to help get you in the spirit! You may have just hopped over from the ever-awesome Heidi Weaver--she never fails to WOW me! And if you've just joined us now, don't neglect to make your way around and see what everyone has created.
I couldn't choose just one holiday, so I chose three--let's start off with Halloween. I simply couldn't resist the adorable Howl-o-Ween stamp set and matching Boo To You framelits dies.
This Cascading Card uses nearly every stamp in the set. My owl is getting ready to Trick or Treat--see his little pumpkin candy holder?
Next up (for us Americans) is Thanksgiving (our Canadian friends celebrated earlier this week--Happy Thanksgiving!). This is a holiday that goes hand in hand with beautiful autumn colors, and I SO love seeing the leaves turn. So what could be better than seeing the trees through your window?
I then took a piece of Whisper White, adhered Envelope Paper "wallpaper" to the top half and cut a rectangular opening. A "chair rail" of Tip Top Taupe was scored and glued down. The window was cut out with the Hearth and Home Thinlits die and a piece of Window Sheet was added to the back; this was adhered to my "wall". Then this layer was popped up with Dimensionals to make it look like you are looking through a window.
And of course, every window needs a little "dressing"--Tip Top Taupe 1" Dotted Lace Trim made a perfect valance!
And finally, let's have a little Christmas spirit.
But I'm not done:
OK that's it for me. Come back next week for directions on my samples here.
And now on to Buffy Cooper, who has something fantastic to show you!
Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the Hop!
