Saturday I’m going to Patty Bennett’s meeting and this is my swap card. I really love the new stamp set, Fifth Avenue Floral. Stamped one of the flowers with Versamark, and embossed with white embossing powder. Used the 1′ circle punch on bottom right side and attached to Whisper White c/s. Added the Congratulations and used the slit punch on the bottom right so I could slide the Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain ribbon thru it and tied it up with Linen Thread and a “button” from one of the Sizzix Sizzlits button die.
I found these on Linda Heller’s blog. I don’t usually make anything for St. Patrick’s Day, but thought these are so cute. And I love the fact that I didn’t have to buy another stamp set to make them. Can you guess which stamp set I used? Click on the photo to see it better. Still can’t guess? Love You Much stamp set & Heart to Heart punch. I stamped Green Galore on Green Galore c/s, using the scallop stamp, punched it out with the scallop punch, stamped it again on w/w using my marker to ink up only the Hugs & Kisses and the circles around the scallop stamp. Punched that out with my 1 1’4″ circle punch and mounted it with a dimensional onto the Green Galore Scallop. I stamped the 3 heart stamp in Green Galore three times and punched out with the Heart to Heart punch. Used mini glue dots to add them to the white circle. I didn’t have the right green ribbon so I used my re-inker and a little water to dye my white grosgrain ribbon. I used my Top Note die in Glorious Green for the topper. Stapled that to my bag of “money” added the ribbon and then the scallop on top of that. Simple & cute, my kind of project!
Here is another scallop bag, but this time I used the new DSP, Parisian Breeze Specialty. I know I’ve said it before, but I love this new DSP. I also used Lots of Tags, which is an exclusive die that you can only get from SU. The Chocolate Chip 1″ double stitched grosgrain ribbon goes so nice with this paper as well. For a finishing touch, I finally got to use some of the new Corduroy Buttons. The holes on the buttons are big enough to get the Whisper White Taffata ribbon through. You get 3 different sizes and a combination of buttons, and brads. These are so cool! In the upcoming mini catalog they are adding Baja Breeze Corduroy buttons too! Yeah! Those will look so nice with the Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP too.
