Today's project uses three of the new singles: Fall Scarecrow, Fall Sunflower and Simply Fall. All three are must haves! There are lots of pics for this project so kick back and enjoy! My buddy Cami gave me the idea of doing a tissue box cover. I found this tutorial on SCS and couldn't wait to give it a try. OMGosh...it was so much fun! I know I say that a lot, but come on, look at it...FUN!
I recently bought some new dies from My Favorite Things and Papertrey Ink and couldn't wait to try them out. The grass is from MFT and the clouds and fence are PTI. I've been looking for a fence die for a while and haven't really found the right one. Most I've seen are just too small or too big, but not this one! In fact, all three dies are the perfect size for card making, or in this case, tissue box making! *grin*
All of the images were stamped on white card stock and colored with Copic markers before being cut out. The fence panels were cut out then embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder before being lightly sponged with brown ink. The sunflowers, fence, grass, pumpkins...uh, pretty much everything...were all layered.
The leaves were all shaped before they were attached. Before the clouds were adhered, they were Sparkly Fluffed. If you haven't used this fluff before, it's awesome! It's fuzzy to the touch and has little pieces of glittery stuff in there so it really sparkles. The best part...it comes in a couple dozen different colors!
I left the box itself pretty basic because I wanted my focal point(s) to be the images and not the box. There are a couple little clouds on the top of the box too.
