First 2010 Sewn Together Blog Hop


Welcome to the First 2010 Sewn Together Blog Hop.

Each one of us on the team will be showcasing a project using one of Angela’s new January images!!
So which image am I showing? It’s Hershey Crafting!
First, I colored Hershey with my Crayola color pencils. I chose Mahogany and Brown to make him a chololate colored dog as his name suggests. Next, I cut it out and ran a blue cat’s eye inkpad around the edge. Then, I went looking for some challenges to combine. I found my color inspiration on Color Create and then I saw that I could use Pile it On’s challenge to use a digital image (like that would be a challenge to me LOL). Last week, I was cleaning out a craft storage shelf and found a door hanger template. I decided that this image would be perfect to make a door hanger for my craft room.
I traced the template a little larger than actual size so I could have a border then I traced it actual width but longer to take advantage of a full size of a sheet of cardstock. Then I cut it out by hand. This template would be a great one to make a Sure Cuts a Lot file for (maybe someday). Next, I got my Cuttlebug and my new Daisy folder and embossed the yellow cardstock. I used the Martha Stewart wasabi ink pad to color the daisies green. Then, while cleaning out that shelf, I found a bunch of little rectangles that was the negative space of a fence row. I decided to use them like letter tiles. I colored each edge a different color with my Rubber Stampede ink pads and put one letter of my message on it. Then I ran them thru my xyron sticker maker. (See this post to see xyron in action) Finally, I stuck them down in a “chaotic” style (I don’t know what this really is called – it’s just the name I came up with ) All that ink I used can be applied to Frosted Designs challenge to use ink.

I hope you like what I came up with. If you love this digital stamp of Hershey, remember to leave a comment at the end of my post to be in a drawing for this image. You also have to visit and leave a comment on EVERY design team blog for a chance to win the grand prize package offered by Doodle Bean Stamps. Doodle Bean Stamps is sponsoring our January grand prize package, which will be a $10 Gift Certificate to Doodle Beans Stamps and a $15 Amazon.com Gift Certificate! WOW!!! What a prize! Winner will be announced on the 13th.
