Reject Blog Hop

Oh, the sting of rejection...  Thankfully, Amber at Damask Love is taking some of the pain away by having a Papercraft Magazine rejection blog hop.  Submissions were for the Dec/Nov issue.  I entered the "So much to be Thankful for" category.


I made a hostess gift - thinking that the woman who braves everyone at Thanksgiving will need this when we leave!  This wine topper was super simple to make. 

I cut a 4x6 piece of craft and ran it through the cuttlebug with the PTI woodgrain impression plate that was inked in SU basic brown.  Next, I made the fold and cut a hole in the center to slip over the bottle neck.  The leaves were cut from PTI dies and Coordinations cardstock then ruffed up with sand paper.  I stamp the veining in Brilliance copper and gold to add the shimmer.  A label, sentiment, twine, and button finished it off.



So, I am going to make a confession.  It is hard to make blind submissions of my work.  There is no feedback and I'm never sure if I'm on trend.  Obviously, this wasn't what they were looking for but I was so happy when Papertrey Ink's release night came around.  On the stores home page this month what did I see...

Thanks for stopping by~

I love it and think you did a great job on it, Rebecca! The twine and wood button are a great touch and I love the woodgrain embossing on the paper too.

Rebecca.......This is just beautiful!!! I love the leaf prints surround the mat stack! And that woodgrain IP is what pulls it all together!
