Dress Up Framelits Wedding Collection

The Dress Up Framelits are so much fun to play with, makes me go back to when I was a little girl playing with paper dolls.
I've used everything Stampin' Up! & all current product. There's to much to write so if you have any questions please leave a comment or email me & I will be happy to provide more information. The one thing I would like to mention is that I cut up the beautiful Lace from the Artisan Embellishment Kit for the daisy Flowers & bodice of the left dress. The freestanding wedding dress I used 2 Paper Doilies, 1 is left whole & folded & the other is cut in 1x 1/2 & 2 x 1/4" & those are added underneath for a full long skirt.

Owl Occasions PJ party invite

Teya's Birthday invites for a PJ Slumber Party. Colours are Calypso Coral, Baja Breeze & Daffodil Delight -it's the Creative Combo in the Color Coach, I used Early Espresso & Wild Wasabi for the stem & leaves. Sadly "Owl Occasions" stamp set has retired for now, fingers crossed it's in the next catalogue. I love this versatile set.

Tea For Two DSP dream

I finally covered this wooden word dream for Teya that I purchased some time ago with the oh so pretty "Tea For Two Designer Series Paper" (129311).
I painted the wood except the front with an acrylic paint I have in my paint stash called Pink Petal.
I also used to embellish the Ribbon & Buttons from SAB, a Tea Time Trinket (129326), Bitty Butterfly (129406) & Elegant Butterfly (127526) punches, a little thread of Calypso Coral Bakers Twine (125573) & some Basic Rhinestone & Pearl Jewels. It measures over 12" long which is why the m has the polka dot paper on it & the pearls hide the join, same with the d, the join is covered with the ribbon. It needed little added as the paper I chose had lots of interest & colour.

Heart Framelits Double Easel Card

 I saw this idea & tutorial with the Hearts Collection Framelits (125599) over at the stamp doc & loved it so had a play & this is what I came up with using some gorgeous new products.
I do quite like them as individual easel cards though but the double easel is a big wow!
I dyed the flower (cut 1) from the Flower Trim (126869) with Crumb Cake re-inker & Aqua Painter -I like this technique best but using a dauber & ink pad works nicely as well.

Pretty Petites gift card holder

This cute little gift card holder uses 1/2 sheet of  A4 CS & 2 pieces of DSP that measure 7 x 10cm to decorate the front & inside.
Fold your CS in 1/2 as you would a std card then open & fold in 1/2 again the other way so you end up with 4 rectagles.

Fold the card in half (folded edge is along the bottom) & cut a triangle 2 layers of CS at once as shown in pic.


Place cut off triangle piece folded in the embossing folder, & run through the bigshot with no tabs.
Tip: Trim the longest edge of the triangle a little prior to embossing or you will have to trim all 3 points to fit nicely as pockets in the holder later.
Apply sticky strip to the 2 edges shown in pic below & adhere the triangle embossed piece so it is in place on the sticky strip then fold up the card holder & adhere to form the 2 pockets.

Adhere the DSP to the front, cut the other piece in half diagonally & adhere those to the inside.

Tie some ribbon/twine around the entire front piece to keep the middle triangle piece in place as it is only adhered with a small amount of sticky strip, it will also keep your gift card from falling out.

Decorate as desired. Holds a tea bag & note card nicely.
