At my October stamp party with my team we did a Mystery Swap. I gave each person the same three items and they were to take it home and create something with it. Then we all post our creations to our group Facebook page.
Here are the three items I gave them:
The strip of designer paper is from the Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper Stack. A piece of Rope Trim for an accessory and a stamped image from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set finish out the three items.
Here is the card I made with these items.
You may be thinking that I did not use the designer paper at all, but in fact I just used the other side of the paper strip than the side shown in the photograph above. Got to love two sided paper!
I used the same paper stack to die cut the red heart. I love that it looks like a cozy sweater!
I used the largest heart in the Hearts Framelits set and wanted a larger white heart to layer it on. SO, I turned the heart upside down, so the cut side is up, on a piece of Whisper White card stock and traced the die. I cut it out and had the perfect layer for the die cut heart. This works because the cut edge on the die is on the inside edge. Next, I pierced some holes in the edge of the white heart and hand stitched it with some of the rope trim. You can see that I had deconstruct the rope trim to get such a thin piece to stitch with.
I used lots of dimensional to put this card together! I love the 3D feel of it.
Two kinds of embossing on this card! I embossed the Pool Party panel with the Brick Embossing Folder, giving it the look of an igloo. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment with White Embossing powder. The sentiment can be found it the Stitched with Cheer stamp set.
