and one of the newest Quietfire Design Rubber stamp releases

The sentiment is stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed
with  copper embossing powder on Spellbinders Decorative Labels 28 layered on Spellbinders Floral Oval.

The leaves are cut from Spellbinders Assorted Leaves, Kraft Glassine paper, crinkled and colored. The ink needs to be heat set into the paper.

The flowers are constructed from Silhouette Cut files,
Here is how they look on the mat.

First I tried the Harvest Blessings cut file to make my sentiment embellishment and for some creative reason, Thankful stole the show!
On the mat:
I've always been an Italic kind of girl, and Suzanne has won me over to Blackletter!

Cut five layers out of card stock, glue them together and thermal emboss gold.

The whole thing is held together with a lot of glue dots. I cut many of them up into tiny pieces to hide them and if you run your scissor through perfect medium or VersaMark they won't stick.
The adhesive of choice is Glue Dots! They held well to both paper and wood, are almost invisible, and I could move them around a bit it needed.
***Tip***
Put all your elements in place, take a photo, then you can take it apart and glue it, with the photo for reference.

I hope you are inspired by my project, and be sure to scroll over to Yvonnes post, and the Walnut Hollow post to see what more is in store for you today.

In addition to a garden ornament, I'm going to be using this as a floral offering when it is my turn in our Church Guild!

Evelyn said...

Robyn, I really like the yellow flowers you used.

Teri's Alter Ego said...

A great way to brighten up a corner of your garden on a sunny autumn day, but equally pretty to use in a fairly large potted plant on the patio or in the home or a sun room. The sentiment is perfect for the season!

Colleen said...
