Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.
Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
The die used to make the township silhouette will be in the Holiday catalog which will debut next month. This will be the first of many Christmas cards that I will make for my loved one’s this Christmas, my favorite time of year. To give the yellow illumination in the windows and doors, I used my Aqua Painters with a little bit of Daffodil Delight ink and barely dabbed it on the cardstock. It doesn’t have to be perfect and messy is even better. =) Our Fine Tip glue is perfect for the miniature cut-outs, especially the edges of the roof tops.
The moon is not perfectly round and I used a Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight very lightly to give it a kind of dirty look. I stamped it off to the side to remove a little bit of the ink. Santa and his reindeer are from the Hearts Come Home stamp set, which will also debut next month in the Holiday catalog. The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig came in so handy when stamping Santa and his Reindeer.
Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below.
