NOVEMBER 2022 DIY: Flowers of Home


This month it’s more die cuts and less stamping. When you’re only making one of something, all that cranking of the Big Boss isn’t such a big deal:

  • Stamps: Peaceful Deer (sentiment)
  • Color Palette: Basic White, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Pear Pizazz, Pumpkin Pie
  • Accessories: Big Boss, Flowers of Home dies, Textural Elements, Stampin’ Write markers, Linen Thread, Stampin’ Dimensionals

I colored the Textural Elements (currently unavailable, expected this week) with Stampin’ Write markers. I used Pumpkin Pie for the “berries” and added just a touch of Cajun Craze to them at the stem. The stems themselves are Old Olive (as much as I love so many other greens, Old Olive is my go-to green!)

I cut a BUNCH of these little branch-bits and started playing. It’s a good thing I cut a lot: I accidentally adhered the first round to the wrong calendar. It looked great, but nope. Calendar so nice, I made it twice.

It’s hard to believe today is November 1st. That means the official end of hurricane season (yay!), but we’re still waiting for the weather to turn a little cooler. Soon the humpback whales will arrive from Alaska, and we’ll watch – and listen – for them. Did you know if you go into the ocean during whale season and put your head underwater you’re likely to hear them sing? Well, now you do.
