‘Whole Lot Of Awesome’ October 2021 Release Instagram hop and prizes to be won!

Hello and welcome to our October 2021 Instagram Hop celebrating our latest release "Whole Lot Of Awesome". If you don’t follow me on Instagram, please do so here. I would love to welcome you in our little tribe. We do share lots more inspiration (and entertainment) over there, than we do here on the blog alone. It’s a fun place to be and yes, every month we have giveaways too :)

I created this pretty little door hanger for a pretty little girl in my life. :) She is in elementary school and has been into redecorating her room lately. Her birthday is coming up next month, so when I thought of creating a non-card project for this month's hop, I immediately thought of her and made this one:

I used our 'You Are The One' stamp set for this one. After sizing and printing it on Canson's multi media paper, I cut it out using my Brother Scan N Cut machine. For coloring I used Studio 71 watercolor pencils. I also added the centers using fine liner pen.

For the banner I used Altenew Party Banner die and cut it out of the darkest blue color cardstock from Blues paper pad. I traced the same die on a thick cardstock and cut it out leaving a slight border so that the cardboard banner is smaller than the blue one on all side. (The cardboard I used was from the cover of one of Canson's watercolor paper pad. #wastenotwantnot !)

Before adhering the blue banner on top of the cardboard one, I added dry embossing details on top with Simon Says Stamp Circular Lace embossing folder. After adhering both the banners together, I added couple eyelets at the top and used a beaded string to create a handle. The pink of those tiny beads matches perfectly with the color of my flower.

Her name starts with a J, so I used glitter gold paper to cut out a J using Altenew Mega Alphabet die for J.

Lastly I assembled everything and sprinkled a few gold confetti and tiny stars to finish it off. I hope she loves this as much as I loved creating it :) And hope you give a try to make something like this with your digital stamps.
