SUDSOL BLOG TOUR STARTS TODAY

I hope you really enjoyed the last blog, weren’t they awesome projects!  I hope you enjoy mine!  I really went out of my comfort zone when I made these and this time two out of the three projects I used tutorials that were provided on Sudsol for FREE when you become a member.  You can try a FREE 2 week trial if you are a demo by clicking on the banner!


Here are my projects!

The common theme between all of my projects happens to be using the new Stitched Felt Winter Wishes product out of our current holiday mini.  This first project I took the tutorial out of our SUDSOL patterns for the Diorama card.  Honest to goodness I thought the measurements were wrong because it does actually fit into our medium envelopes and it was too easy.  That's my problem, when I think a project is too hard I get intimidated but when I make the attempt and discover how easy it is--I go into shock--LOL

The supplies for this project are:
  • Stiched Felt Winter Wishes
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set
  • 2.5" circle punch, Decorative Label punch
  • Silver Glimmer paper
  • Mini glue dots
  • Very Vanilla CS
  • Holly Berry Bouquet DSP
  • Wild Wasabi Classic Ink Pad
  • Dimensionals
  • Sticky Strip
Now for my next project I also used a pattern from SUDSOL.  It's called the Center Step Card, once again I used the Stiched Felt Winter Wishes.  Take a look...


I apologize for the light difference on these pictures but here is the list of supplies I used:
  • Whisper White CS
  • Holly Berry Bouquet DSP
  • Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Wild Wasabi classic ink pad
  • Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Dimensionals
  • Snail
  • 3/8" Velvet Stitched Ribbon
  • Simply Scored Tool
  • Fiskars Paper Cutter
  • 2.5" circle punch, 1 3/4" circle punch
  • Word Window Punch
Last but not least this one is by far my favorite as I like to do punch art.  Now you might see this one is similar to others that are out there but the use of our Stitched Felt Winter Wishes and the Velvet stitched ribbon might just make the difference.  Who knew that the Builder Bird Punch could be so useful.  Take a look!

Here are the supplies for this project:

  • Cherry Cobbler CS 8.5 x 5.5"
  • Whisper White CS 5.25 x 4"
  • Daffodil Yellow CS 2 x 6"
  • Basic Black CS 3 x 3"
  • Wild Wasabi CS 8.5 x 11" (you will go through that when you punch out the branches)
  • Stitched Felt Winter Wishes
  • Wild Wasabi Classic Ink pad
  • Calypso Coral Classic Ink pad
  • Bird Builder, Stocking Builder punch
  • Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in Stripes
  • paper snips
  • Stitched Stockings Stamp set
  • 3/8" Velvet Stitched Ribbon Very Vanilla
  • Mini Clothespins embellishments
How to information:

  1. This step is easy, fold over your Cherry Cobbler CS in the landscape side.
  2. Grab your Stripes folder and your Whisper White CS and put it through your big shot.  Now cut out the middle section by 2.75" on both sides and leave approx 1.5" from the top.  Sort of making a window here.
  3. Attach your Basic Black CS to that with your snail.
  4. Grab your Bird Builder Punch and punch out 3 birds in daffodil yellow.  Cut the beak off and sponge the edges with your Calypso Coral Classic Ink.  Place them together with snail then put it into the middle of your fireplace.
  5. While your at it grab your Wild Wasabi classic ink and stamp your stocking.  Punch it out with your Stocking builder punch.  Set it aside.
  6. Now sit back, relax, grab your Bird builder punch and your Wild Wasabi CS and punch away the branch section lots and lots (Love the wording here, LOL).  When you are done that, cut off the excess of the stem and start attaching them to the top of your fireplace.  Play with it here, there is no right or wrong, just try to make it full.
  7. After you have zoned from doing that, grab your 3/8" Velvet Stitched Ribbon and place it across your stems and attach with either snail or sticky strip to the back.
  8. Grab your mini clothes pins to attach your stocking and your mitts around the flame (not too close you don't want them to catch fire ha ha).  I found that I had to add a couple of mini glue dots to the mitts to keep them in place.
  9. Then attach that whole piece to your base using dimensonials.
Because this one is a little time intensive I would recommend that you make two since you will be cutting the Cherry Cobbler into two pieces out of the 8.5 x 11 and when you cut out the Whisper White.  I hope that little tidbit helps you out.  Now my next dilemma, which lucky family member is going to get these little beauties this year.  Ha ha! Please leave a comment and tell me what YOU think?

Again I have to thank SUDSOL and all the members within, who without their support and inspiration, I would not have been able to do these projects on my own.  If you haven't yet, be sure to at least give it a try with the 2 WEEK FREE trial by clicking HERE

Now on to the rest of the tour by clicking the 'next button' and may the fun continue!  Thanks for stopping by.  :)
