How exciting!! This is my first blog tour and I want to thank Patti for all her help! As a new demonstrator and member of SUDSOL I have to admit that I have learned so much!! There are so many benefits to being a member just in the business reference section alone and that doesn’t even include the wonderful resource that the gallery has! If you are not a member you need to check it out. There is a two week free tour - I know you will join after you see all the information and tools that you have access too!

I have three projects for you. The first is a punched turkey. I know this is not a new idea, however this little turkey only needs the scallop circle punch. The great thing is since we have a few different sizes of the scallop circle you can make it different sizes. I put mine on a bag of Turkey poop. I wasn’t too crazy about the poop poem but it was the best I could find at the time. The beak and feet are just scraps that I cut out and the body is also from the scallop punch.

The second project is a pair of tile coasters. This is made from the serene snowflake set. I know you can stamp on tile in many ways, this particular pair was stamped using paint. One was actually stamped with the paint, the other the paint was sponged on the background and the snowflake was stamped using stays on. After I baked them I sprayed them with clear lacquer paint.

The third project is a “manly” fall card. I used a technique called texture duet. I used two different embossing plates to create the double effect and then aged both pieces of cardstock by layering color. I used Lovely As A Tree on Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke card stock. The different colors that where sponged on included Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, and Early Espresso. I also used the black Raven Lace from the Mini Holiday Catalogue.

I hope you enjoyed my blog and your tour so far. Thanks for looking!!
