Quietfire and Walnut Hollow Blog Hop - Harvest Blessings!

HarvestBlessingsSide2

Good morning!  Sherry here and it’s my turn to welcome you to the Walnut Hollow & Quietfire Design 2014 Blog Hop!  We’re pleased you’re joining us and know you’ll find lots of creative inspiration for combining Quietfire stamps and/or digital cutting files with the beautiful Walnut Hollow wood products. 

QFD WH BlogHop 09 14

For my project, I chose to work with the Walnut Hollow Tabletop Sign (Item No. 40187)

40187

and Quietfire Design Silhouette Digital Cutting File Harvest Blessings.  

Image001

To begin, the Tabletop Sign was painted white, antiqued with different shades of browns and then sanded.  I love the distressed look achieved using my palm sander!

HBStep1

The Silhouette Cameo and vinyl were used to make a stencil of the sentiment, Harvest Blessings.  

HBStep2

The stencil was cut in two parts, covered with contact paper and then applied in stages to the sign.  

HBStep3

Using the same tan/brown paints used for the antiquing, the sentiment was painted onto the sign.  Blessings was painted first, allowed to dry and Harvest was painted last.  

HBStep4

While the paint was still wet, the vinyl was removed.

HBStep5

To finish the sign, I dug through my fall decoration boxes and found some loose flowers and pumpkins to glue to the sign.

Both sides of the sign were completed, so that it could sit on my dining room table as a centerpiece for the holidays.

  36. I like that you combined a simple yet elegant wording with the representations of some of those blessings. The narrow design allows it to be put many places.

  43. I love the vinyl templates and what a great idea to complete both sides. It is just the perfect centerpiece for the fall table reminding one of the rich bounty they have received and it is low enough to leave on the table, allowing folks to easily talk with each other.

  44. This is Beautiful! Great job Sherry!
