Thailand Trip Achievers Blog Hop- Inspired By Nature

Hello everyone and welcome to this month's Thailand Achievers Blog Hop. We were formally known as the Mediterranean Trip Achievers, but that's in the past now. We have all earned the next incentive trip and are counting the days! 

This month's theme is Inspired By Nature. So, I decided I was inspired by the fall pumpkins and gourds that are everywhere right now! I grabbed my Basket of Wishes stamp set and got to work. 

First, I wanted to use my Seasonal Decorative Masks. I spritzed this one with Soft Suede ink and love the way it bled out a bit. 

Next, I focused on watercolor the basket and veggies. I used Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Crumb Cake. 

Did you notice the twine? That's the Halloween Night Twine! I pulled the Pumpkin Pie strands out and tied a bow with them. I love the texture of the twine when this is done. 

And, the sentiment inside is for a birthday of a friend that is coming up. I this it's perfect for a birthday, even through it doesn't actually say "Happy Birthday!"

Ok, here is the complete list of everyone participating. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to hop along to these other wonderful demos! 

Supply list for this card: 

Candy Cane Lane Wreath Class To Go
Deadline to purchase Class To Go Kit: October 26th
Class Kits will ship on or before Nov. 2nd. 

The Candy Cane Designer Series Paper is so beautiful, I designed a project to show it off! 
The kit also features the adorable Cookie Cutter Punch 
and precious Home Sweet Home Thinlit.

Your class kit will include half a pack of Candy Cane DSP, a pack of Candy Cane Lane Twine as well as the ring used as the wreath's base. You will also be provided with all the supplies needed to create this wreath (including punched and die cut images) and a step by step PDF tutorial showing you how to create the project. There is only one stamp used for this project (peppermint) so the stamp set is not included in the class fee. 

Shipping cost on this class is a bit higher because of the size of the craft ring and the DSP. If you would like to provide your own ring, I have created a class fee for that option (I will provide you with specifics on how to find a craft ring online.)

Class To Go Kit: $29 with $9 shipping
Class Kit without the ring: $25 with $7 shipping
Add on Candy Cane Lane Stamp for $18
