Pals Blog Hop – Pleasant Pheasants represents my favorite season

Welcome to the Pals September, 2018 Blog Hop. The 2018 Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! is out and the Pals are excited! Sit back while we share creations from “Our Favorite Holiday”.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Pleasant Pheasants stamp set brings to mind all of the wonderful Autumn memories I have had over the years. Autumn is definitely my favorite season. The cool breezes and colorful leaves are like a breath of fresh air after the heat and humidity of summer!  This stamp set has several wonderful images for our coloring pleasure.  I started with the pheasants and with several different coloring mediums.  In the end, I prefer the colored pencil by itself or colored pencil added to a blender pen colored base. Perhaps with enough practice I can appreciate my alcohol pen coloring attempts, but it is pitiful thus far.

Pleasant Pheasants Card #1

This first card is an easel style featuring the sentiment in Pleasant Pheasants.  This image was colored only with Prismacolor pencils.  The card colors are Blueberry Bush, Old Olive and Sahara Sand.  Stitched Seasons thinlits were utilized for the shapes associated with the sentiment.  I feel certain you noticed the Tin Tile dynamic textured embossing used with the galvanized metallic paper… it is so lovely when combined with metallic foil papers!!  The button is from my stash (a retired Stampin’ Up! accessory) but the 3/16″ braided linen trim is new in our holiday catalog.

Pleasant Pheasants Card #2

This Pleasant Pheasants birthday card is for my Dad.  The pheasants image was colored using blender pens with various SU ink colors.  Honestly, neither card has any degree of “good” coloring.  I will definitely be coloring the images in this stamp set again.  Such good practice!!  I had to show that the sentiments in the Perennial Birthday  stamp set do not have to be paired with pretty flowers.  Primary color Blueberry Bushel is combined with Gray Granite, Cajun Craze and Mango Melody.  The die cuts utilized Thinlits/Framelits from Stitched Labels, Foliage Frame and the retired Starburst dies.  The galvanized buttons are available in this year’s holiday catalog.  I love their hammered appearance!
