Trying to branch out.

Hello, friends! Emily here with you today with a very traditional watercolored cornucopia… I tried to be a little trendier with my release project using the Thankful Cornucopia stamps, and so for today’s project I went totally traditional. I wanted to show off the lovely detail in the cornucopia stamp, so I decided to simply color the images the way they should be colored. 🙂

I started by heat embossing that gorgeous large cornucopia image on a piece of watercolor paper using white detail embossing powder. I then used my Zig markers and a wet paintbrush to color the abundance of autumn fruits and veggies. I die cut the panel using the Stitched Rectangle dies, then created a frame using the same dies so as to ensure that they were exactly the same size. The frame was cut from some of the fantastic adhesive-backed orange foil that is stocked in the shop; I simply adhered some of it to a piece of scrap card stock before die cutting it, then popped it up around the edge of my cornucopia panel using dimensional adhesive. Looks like some Thanksgiving decor with that shiny foil frame, right?

Next, I heat embossed and watercolored the pretty banner and sentiment that are included in Thankful Cornucopia and fussy cut it out, but you could easily use the coordinating dies for this. I adhered it to the top of the frame using some Scor Tape, because I didn’t want any liquid adhesive smooshed out on the sides of the super shiny foil frame. The last step was to stamp the Geometric Lattice background stamp on the cream colored card base using some Amber Citrine dye ink.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my project! I can’t wait to dig even further into the new goodies that we released last week… so very many fun new things to play with. Have a fantastic day, friends!
