Happy Wednesday! Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
Our theme this week is "Anything But a Card", and we're highlighting My Favorite Things products. I tried something new and made a fall home decor project.
One of my very favorite stamp sets from MFT is their Harvest Mouse set. It took me forever to finally bring it home, and I love playing with it every year! This year I used it to make an embelishment to add to a candle surrounded by cinnamon sticks.
supplies: orange candle, 3" cinnamon sticks, Glossy Accents as glue, cream and Burnt Orange card stock, My Favorite Things Harvest Mouse, Zig markers to color, text background from Newton's Nook Fall-ing for You, Simon's Stitched Circle die, twine
I started by gluing the cinnamon sticks around the orange candle. I secured them with 3 wide rubber bands for a few hours afterwards to make sure that they were good and stable and stuck. Meanwhile, I stamped my mouse and some extra pumpkins and leaves, colored them with Zig markers and cut them out. Then they were affixed to my stitched circle on which I had stamped a text background and after punching some holes to pass my twine through, I backed the circle with a larger framed one, then tied the whole thing to the covered candle. Here's a little closer shot:
