12 Days of Giving

Happy first day of Fall!  Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I’m excited to share my most favorite time of year… Fall!

I just got all my Sizzix dies to play with and I went for the Dashing Deer first knowing I was somehow going to create a fall project.  Well I usually have some idea of what I may create.  This one needed lots of leaves and burlap.

Onto the fun!

I decided to layer up the antlers with the mat board cut 2 times and a layer of Sizzix Leather Paper.  I cut the head and upper body with some scrap Core paper.  For the leaves I made my own paper using watercolor paper. I grabbed my Ranger Distress Spray Stains peeled paint, carved pumpkin and fossilized amber.  Spritz and spray.  Apply matching distress inks to intensify the colour.

Now that the paper is dry I can cut leaves using Layered Leaf and Tattered Leaves.

I used the texture fade for the layered leaf and also ran my tattered leaves through my Vagabond.

For added texture I love cutting burlap!  I used the wood plank from the Ink Splats & Wood Planks Set texture fade for another layer of texture.  I inked the burlap and burlap ribbon then stamped the Halloween Silhouettes with Ranger Ink Archival Jet Black.  Then add whatever embellishments you want.

I attached everything onto a burlap panel.  I used distress crayon set #2 with peeled paint for the wordband and token.  I inked up the FALL Letterpress blocks with distress paints carved pumpkin, peeled paint, twisted citron and fossilized amber.  Then I tucked a mini pumpkin on the stamped burlap bow.

I love all the fall leaves.  The NEW Mini Holiday Greens are AMAZING.

I wrapped the panel with jute and have hung it up in my breakfast nook.
