Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop...Changing Seasons

AWOW hop header

Welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday blog hop!   This month our theme is Changing Seasons.  Join us as we hop around the world exploring what the theme means to us.  There are  20 stops on the hop so join us for lots of ideas and inspiration.

As summer slips into fall I think about all the fun celebrations ahead.  One of my favorites is Halloween.  I used to have so much fun creating my son's costumes.  He requested some challenging costumes and I would try and accommodate him.  He wanted to be a platypus one year, I think most people thought he was a beaver.  Another year he was a cockroach, now that was a tough one!


Here the Delivering Cheer woman is carrying her pumpkin home and getting ready for Halloween.  I paper pieced her skirt using the Cute Halloween DSP.  The pumpkin is 3 circles layered together along with some leaves and a stem.   The Layering Diorama dies were used to cut the Black Glitter Paper and another pattern from the Cute Halloween DSP pack.  I used the Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody Stampin' Blends to color in the candy  on the DSP.


The striped DSP is also from the Cute Halloween DSP.  The ribbon is the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon.   I am looking forward to carrying home my pumpkin to carve, just wish I had a Boo skirt too!

Now it is time for you to see what the Changing Seasons means to Teri West.

 September Stamp of the Month Projects… To Go!

The September stamp of the month is Nature’s Harvest (pg 54-56 of the Mini Catalog). The To Go projects use both the Nature’s Harvest stamp set and the Harvest Dies aka the bundle (156813).  Having the Harvest Dies will make it easier to complete the projects but not necessary for the projects. What comes in your To Go kit?  All the cardstock,  DSP, embellishments and a link to the tutorials to make your projects (3 cards and a box to hold your cards).  Watercolor pencils (asst 1), Early Espresso ink pad,  Bumblebee ink pad, Stazon ink pad, Tuxedo Black Memento pad, Blending Brush or sponge, Water Painter or paintbrush, and a Blender pen were also used on the projects. These items and adhesives are not included with the To Go projects. 

To register all you need to do is place an order for $40 using the Host Code 66Z9UMFU on my online store-place link here  before the15th of the month.  Your project kit will be mailed  to you on or before the 22nd of the month.  The Host Code is how I will know you want the Stamp of the Month Projects to go. You will need the stamp set to complete the projects.

What a great card. I had to look twice, but there is a beautiful lady. I didn't notice her right away, but I love that. It makes the card extra special.

Wendy Lee

So clever. Love how you brought in the pattern paper for the skirt. Love all the detailed layers.

Melissa Gifford

How clever are you? What a perfect way to use this stamp for Halloween!

Chris Smith

Wow! What a wonderful way to showcase the versatility of Delivering Cheer with the Halloween DSP! This is beautiful!

Jan Clothier

The spooky themed skirt is clever!

Teri West
