We made this pretties at class last week. Everyone was so taken, as I was, with the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and the intricate die cut from the So Detailed Thinlits.
I love how you can place the die cut in so many different ways…on top, on bottom, and even on the side vertically as you have probably seen on Pinterest. Such a pretty die that was super easy to cut out. And, oh my, what about those beautiful Falling in Love Embellishments…swoon.
So many sentiments from the So In Love stamp set fit in the Stitched Shapes oval die as seen below, and you can put them inside as well since each is a “a day to celebrate.”
I love how Stampin’ Up has incorporated sentiment fonts from various stamp sets
into a suite like they did with this one from SU Suite Sentiments.
My daughter is in wedding mode for October 2017…save the dates, invitations, bridesmaids invites, and even groomsman invites. While preparing for her brother’s wedding a couple months ago where she was the Maid of Honor, her fiance mentioned how HE wanted to make invites for his groomsmen like she did with her “champagne cheers” invites for her bridesmaids.
So she surprised him with these tuxedo cards with some help
from Australian SU demonstrator Diane Barnes:
It was so fun to have her in my stamping room figuring everything out as she made them especially the cute bow ties made with the SU Bow Builder Punch. I love how she made the cumberbund or cummerbund (the second being the correct spelling and the first being a variant we Americans seem to use) check out WordLady’s take on it HERE.
I think she is a natural crafter who just won’t admit it!!!
BTW, she had to make 11 of these…no, that is not a typo- 11 attendants on each side…
Have you seen this beauty floating through cyberspace? It was created by a German demonstrator,
Danny Hikade, using the Thoughtful Branches Bundle.
I was so taken by it that I made one myself! I used the actual branches from the Thinlits, stamped the leaves on the Very Vanilla cardstock before I ran it through the Big Shot with the Brickwall embossing folder, and tied on a twine bow. I used Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip, and Garden Green (LOVE that color) as my palette.
To make that cute little middle, just stamp the leaf foliage image and die cut. Then punch out a 1 1/2″ circle out of the leaves and mount it on another solid circle the same size. Easy peasy!
LOCAL STAMPERS…the Thoughtful Branches Bundle ends on August 31…I am still accepting spots for classes on Wednesday evening, Sept.14 and Thursday afternoon and evening, Sept. 15. Let me know if you want to come so I can order you the bundle!
And I decided to really challenge myself and use only what was in the scrap box on my desk. See, I have this box I “file” things in that don’t get used…it could be a scrap of ribbon or an image I did not use on a card or sometimes a die cut or shape of paper I did not use. So, I dug into my box to see what I could find…
I am not kidding you…I did not stamp anything…I just put stuff together from my scrap box using the sketch. I did have to punch a 2″ circle of Blushing Bride cardstock for the small border on my For You flower. I even added some enamel dots that matched a piece of DSP in my box. They were on my desk because I was packaging them for an event so I technically could use them!
The largest scribble flower is Peek-a-boo Peach, the medium flower on the upper right is Sweet Sugarplum, the smallest flower on the lower left is Flirty Flamingo, and the leaves are Emerald Envy. I stamped the splatter from the Swirly Bird stamp set and the sentiment from Watercolor Words using the new Dapper Denim ink which ties everything together on the Dapper Denim card base:) Don’t overlook the Watercolor Words stamp set- it is a larger one that sometimes scares crafters off but it is super cute with a lot of fun and versatile words to use! And it creates quick and easy cards when paired with the images in the set:)
Cleaning up and organizing my stamp room the last few days…so I was happy to stop and just create a card for a few minutes!
