A Berry Merry Light Up Easel from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We're showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin' Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping! 

Hello and welcome to the Isle of Wight for my little contribution to today's Autumn Winter creativity. Thank you for joining me from Janneke's blog.

I was at a loss with where to start to create a project for today's hop. I love so much in this catalogue (my all time favourite catalogue in my 5 years with Stampin' Up!). But I settled on the gorgeous Berry Merry (anyone else think Bake Off when they hear this name?). I love all the little elements in this stamp set for embellishing your beautiful swirly script sentiments.

I wanted to make a piece of home decor to display in my home through December so I came up with this festive easel.

I purchased the little canvas and easel from my local Works. I stamped my elements in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Garden Green, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. I had a few left over light strings from my big Christmas Craft Days so I used one of these to light up my canvas. I simply poked a small hole through my canvas and then secured my LED lights behind each.

When I stamped my main image on to the canvas the stamping was patterned with the bobbles of the canvas. To get this softer watercolour effect for my completed project I used a blender pen over my ink to blend it seamlessly.

Thank you for joining my today. I hope you've enjoyed the hop so far. To continue please click onwards to Catherine's blog to see what she has been making.
