DCWV & Pink and Main Fall Blog Hop!



Can you believe Halloween is Monday? I'm still doing last minute costume shopping! I don't know about you, but I can't wait for these crisp Fall days. Speaking of Fall... Pink and Main teamed up with Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) to create and inspire some awesome Fall crafting. Let's dive right in...

For my project, I created a Fall themed centerpiece. I had a blast with this one. Not only was I using a fantastic Fall paper pad (lots of copper foiling!) from DCWV, but I used several stamps sets from Pink & Main. They paired awesome together. I will have a list of supplies used at the bottom. 


************************************
First, I started with the rosettes. If you haven't put one together, its just folded accordion paper strips. It's so cool and when you complete one, the rest will be a piece of cake! If you need some extra help, there are some awesome tutorials on YouTube and many websites have cut files for convenience. 

SHHHHH...I have a sneak peak....the layered dies on top of the rosettes (circle and flower) are Pink and Main's new large dies!! They are amazing and will be available soon!



I placed the wooden dowels to the back of the rosettes with hot glue. Those suckers weren't going anywhere! Then they were pushed through the floral foam. Next step was to place the "hay" around to cover up the foam and dowels.



The picture below is not showing how shiny and pretty the copper embossing is. I had a big dilemma with this one. What do you do when you can't get to the craft store and you need copper colored embossing powder....YOU MAKE YOUR OWN! I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink, sprinkled clear embossing powder and when I heated it with my heat tool, while it was still hot. rolled it in perfect pearls copper. Then I heat set it again and it baked into the embossing powder....voila!! I still can't believe it worked! 
WARNING: It made a mess :)
