Burlap and HOOT! ~ Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop


Thank you so much for joining us for the October Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad  Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on the Fall season. It’s the time of year when fireplaces start crackling with warmth and we dig out our sweaters. This month’s blog hop will showcase many of the Stampin’ Up! products that are available to make  Autumn themed creations. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the products to create our projects and feel inspired to come up with some great projects of your own.

You should have just left stop number 13 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop –Heidi of Stuck on Stampin'.  If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. 

I've been on a wreath kick the past few weeks, so I have a fun fall wreath to share with you today!
My cute little owl (which survived a little play time with my new puppy) was made using MDS and my that machine!  I created an svg file in MDS with an enlarged Owl Punch, transferred it over to my Silhouette library and cut him out!  The colorful layers were made with the Large Scallop Edgelit.  And the flowers...oh how I love the Burlap Ribbon and Cotton Ribbon Flowers!  I may not like using the spritzers on the banners, but they are AWESOME for dying the ribbon.  I embossed some of the Antique Brads and In Color Boutique Details with gold embossing powder for the center of the flowers, added a few leaves cut out with the Autumn Accents Die and voila! 
Here is a close up of the burlap ribbon flowers... 
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Garden Green, Gold Foil Paper, Early Espresso, Island Indigo, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink ~ Island Indigo, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie
Other Supplies ~ Burlap Ribbon, Cotton Ribbon, Antique Brads, In Color Boutique Details, Gold Embossing Powder, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Circle Punches, Large Scallop Edgelit
While I was cutting out the bigger owl for the wreath, I decided it would be fun to cut out a smaller card size owl too...
My house is now fall ready and this cute little owl happily greets all my guests at the front door!
Happy Fall and Happy Stamping!
Next stop in the hop is Anastasia.
