Ribbons and Bows

Happy Wednesday stamping friends!  Today I decided to make a 3-D item using Stampin’ Up! product.  The picture below shows you a close up of all of the ribbons that I used to transform an embroidery hoop into Halloween decor.

Notice that the Peekaboo Peach ribbon is crinkled.  The crinkle in this seam binding ribbon adds a touch of vintage to any project.  Another thing you will want to know about this ribbon is that it comes in all of the NEW IN-COLORS too.

The Berry Burst ribbon is a 1/2″ wide and woven.  It’s gorgeous.  The thick Jute Twine, oh my gosh, I’m so excited that Stampin’ Up! has jute in the Holiday catalog.  This hoop can securely hang anywhere from this Jute.

Embellishing the inside metal ring of the embroidery hoop was easy, I used multipurpose glue to secure the 7/8″ wide Striped Ribbon to it.  Then I tucked the inside ring  into the outer ring.  Because the Striped ribbon is much wider than the width of the rings it hangs over nicely.  Next, I embellished the outside ring with the Victorian Lace Trim.  The trim is so pretty and feminine. It also was secured with multipurpose glue.  You are going to love all of the ribbons, they truly are beautiful.  A variety of Stampin’ Up! ribbon transformed the embroidery hoop into a festive ring of holiday color.

Now, about the focal point.  A  3 x 3 square of polka dot Designer Series Paper holds a smaller stitched square of Peekaboo Peach card stock and a circle of Berry Burst card stock.  All of those items back the black cat. I sponged the circle just to add a bit of interest and texture.

You will find this black cat in the same Designer Series Pack as the polka dot paper.  Yes, there are a couple of 12×12 sheets of paper patterned with these cat images.  The cats were printed to coordinate with the cat punch.  All we have to do is punch the cats out,  Awesome huh?

The cat shimmers because I colored him with Wink of Stella.  Black Rhinestones, Bitty Bows and spider webs all contributed to the finished product.

3-D items are fun to make.  You can decorate your home with them or give them as gifts.

Thanks for stopping in, I hope you enjoyed visiting.

By the way, I love the comments I’ve been receiving lately.  Thank you for using the comment section to tell me how you feel and for asking questions.

Christine’s Gift

Yesterday was my first day of training with my new recruit Christine.  I wanted to welcome Christine to my team with a gift so I made her this necklace.  I must tell you how I came across this idea.  One of my dear friends Liz Isa gave me a ton of vintage wooden spools, then she sent me an email with a Pinterest idea on what to do with them.  Liz  sure knows me, I loved the spools and I definitely loved the necklace idea.

So the other day I made this necklace using Stamping Up’s ” Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper” and one of the spools that Liz gave me.   This Designer Series paper pack includes 24 sheets of  lightweight sheets of paper printed with traditional Christmas carols: 4 each of 6 double sided designs. The paper is 12 x 12 acid free, lignin free, Basic Black and Whisper White in color.

Christine loved her necklace, I was so glad.  She loved the idea of wearing a necklace made with Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper.  Liz and I need a necklace too so I will making more necklaces hopefully today.

Have a great weekend my friends,

Happy Independence Day

Hello my friends and Happy 4th of July ( well tomorrow).  I just had to share with you a brooch that my friends/customers JoNell made to give to her friends and co-workers.  Can you image getting this beautiful brooch just in time to wear tomorrow?  I think I would have squealed out loud.

Here is the how to information.

JoNell used burlap as the medium for her brooches.  She cut the burlap into heart shapes using SU framelits (cool huh?). JoNell then applied Versa Mark ink directly onto the burlap and then sprinkled clear embossing powder onto the hearts, shook off the excess powder and then heated it with the heat tool. Embossing the burlap makes it stiff, YES!!!!.  The last step is to select ribbons and embellishments and then hot glue then onto the hearts.  Some of the embellishments JoNell used have been discontinued but I listed the other items you can still order as a good substitute.

GREAT job JoNell your friends must have loved their  gifts.  Especially since these brooches are made from the heart.
