Walnut Hollow & Quietfire Design - Tabletop Sign - Thankful


Hello!!!  I'm Wanda and welcome to Day 1 of 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 on the beautiful Walnut Hollow wood products. 



I am using Walnut Hollow's tabletop sign, narrow (item #40189) 


and one of the stamps from Quietfire Design's set Give Thanks - set of 2 stamps mounted.


With Autumn upon us I had soooooooo much fun putting this little scene together.  I started with a brick stencil and Ranger's Archival Inks (russet/sienna & watering can) applying the ink through the stencil with a mini ink blending tool on the tall part of the sign.  I then added russet on the ledge and all the edges.  Oh, I should mention that I did do just a little bit of sanding first on the front of the ledge area and on some of the edges and corners.

The sentiment is stamped onto white cardstock with jet black Archival Ink and cut out with Spellbinders lacy squares.  This is layered onto a another piece of white cardstock cut with Spellbinders fleur de lis squares, embossed with an embossing folder, and colored with Distress Ink mowed lawn.  I also rubbed a little bit of white fire Treasure Gold on the edges of both panels.  They are attached both together and onto the sign with foam mounting tape.  

All the foliage and butterflies are die cut (a variety of different Tim Holtz dies) from either manila cardstock or gungepaper and colored with Distress products (inks, stains, markers).  Any stamping on the foliage is done with Archival inks.  The speckling on the foliage is done using markers and a spritzer tool.  The bird is from my stash.

Oh my goodness! This is a glorious scene!!! I love all the little details that make this such a spectacular work of art!! I am definitely going to need to get the goodies to make one of these for my husband using deer scenery. Thank you so much for the wonderful inspiration! He is so hard to make things for because he doesn't like lots of "stuff" but I know he will LOVE one of these!! Thanks again for the inspiration!
