Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...The World Around Us

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!  We have a total of 23 stops on this hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators  here to share some ideas and inspiration.   Our theme this month is the World Around Us.  This can mean many things and each of us will have a different take on what that means.  So hop along with us and share in the fun.

Today  is a very blustery day here in the Pacific Northwest and there are leaves falling and swirling all around.  This was my inspiration for my card and what is happening in the World Around Me.


I used the Gilded Autumn  Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Autumn Punch Pack for the leaves.  All the leaves are from the DSP and except for the 2 small leaves were punched out using the leaf punches in the Autumn Punch Pack.   The 2 small leaves were fussy cut out from the DSP.  The leaves that have foil accents were colored using the Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends (Light).  

The Very Vanilla CS was embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder.  This folder like the Subtle 3D folder adds texture but isn't distracting.  It reminds me of the texture of watercolor paper.  


The Playful Alphabet Dies and four different patterns of DSP were used to cut out FALL.  The DSP was put on a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet and cut out using the dies.  The Foam Adhesive Sheet is roughly the thickness of Stampin' Dimensionals.  One of the nice things about the Playful Alphabet Dies is there are multiple dies for some of the letters. 

Inside of the card I added a strip of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and  a leaf and an acorn from the DSP and punched out using the Autumn Punch Pack. 

Now it is time for you to hop on and see what the talented Teri West has made for you.  I wonder what is happening in the World Around Her?
