Today I have three projects to share with you, using a variety of stamp sets and dies.
My first project features the Circle Embroidery Hoop Die. When I first saw this fun die set, I knew I wanted to create a tag with it. I love the shape and the clever design.
I started by cutting two circles, one out of patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection, and the other from heavy-weight cardstock. I adhered them back to back to make the base of my tag sturdy and durable. I then heat-embossed my sentiment, which is from the new Life Is Awesome Stamp Set, with Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. Once that was ready, I cut the embroidery hoop using one layer of patterned paper and three of 80lbs white cardstock, and glue them together to make the tag even thicker. To decorate it, I stamped my images from the Embroidered Bloom Stamp Set in a variety of colors and adhered them down with foam dots for dimension.
I then went over them with a shimmer pen to make them shiny.
My second project is a gift wrapping idea, and uses the Life Is Awesome Stamp Set.
This little box was very simple to put together. The flower arrangement is what stands out, and truly adds a special and personalized touch that is sure to impress the recipient.
I started by assembling the box, for which I used a beautiful patterned paper from the Our Family Collection, and arranged the flowers in a diagonal design. A simple white ribbon finished the box.
My third and last project for today is a layout featuring the Beautiful Heart Stamp Set, with its big and detailed images that are just gorgeous.
I decided to use only the leaves for my page, as they fit perfectly the photos I had chosen and were just the right embellishments. I cut the huge layered flower with my die-cutting machine out of different patterned papers from both the Reflection and Our Family Scrapbook Collections. All the petals were adhered down with foam squares, which added lots of dimension.
I backed my photos with papers in coordinating colors, and placed them in the center of the layout – again, I used foam adhesive to lift them up a little. I arranged the tiny stamped leaves all around the first layer of the flower, while the bigger ones were used to frame the photos.
I knew I wanted to use some stamped flowers as well, but instead of going with the one in the Beautiful Heart Stamp Set, which is gorgeous but a little too big for what I needed here, I opted to use more of the Embroidered Blooms images.
I completed the layout with sentiments and a wood veneer button from the Reflection Collection.
