Welcome! This week Wendy Sue Anderson challenged the Cosmo Cricket DT to create something inspired by the Pottery Barn catalog picture shown below. While I loved the picture, I was really challenged--for instance, what Cosmo Cricket papers could I use for all of those neutral tones?
Hmmmmm. I thought I'd go the leafy-wreath and window route next. Luckily I had picked up a perfect punch for the job when I was in Milwaukee last week at the Artist and Display store, a Punch Bunch Dusty Miller punch.
I punched the dusty miller shapes (which reminded me of oak leaves) from papers in the Earth Love Mini Deck. The wreath base was cut with two Spellbinders dies, a Scalloped Circle and a Plain Circle. I attached the leaves with Ranger's Matte Accents.
The Window shape was cut with a Fiskars paper cutter. Each pane is 1-1/4" square, with 1/4" in between panes. I embossed it after I finished with a Papertrey Ink Wood Grain Impression Plate, but I would suggest that you consider embossing before you cut the panes since the panes stretched a bit while I was embossing them.
There are some lovely projects on the Cosmo Cricket blog here, all using the same inspiration photograph. I hope you get a chance to visit!
