Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Our team is a group of demonstrators who love to make beautiful things. Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy! If you hopped over from my amazing friend Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. For July, our theme is Pick a Bundle! The team is focusing on the amazing bundles in the annual catalog!!
I know it probably won’t come as a big surprise to those of you who follow my blog, but I chose the Floral Boutique bundle. I am obsessed with this die set and the stamp is equally gorgeous! Navy is the seems to be the wedding color of the season since I know of at least 2 brides (meaning that I know two brides, lol) who have chosen Navy as one of their colors. Stampin’ Up sure hit the trend spot on! I decided to use the dies to create a background for my stamped panel so I went with a tone on tone look. But cutting a Night of Navy panel to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and then cutting using the top and bottom dies from the Detailed Floral Thinlits, I had a perfect overlay for my card base (also in Night of Navy). I used the dies similarly in my tutorial here except to create a stencil. By attaching it directly to the base, it takes on almost an embossed look but with more detail. I stamped my flower from the coordinating stamp set, Floral Phrases, in Night of Navy onto watercolor paper. I took an paintbrush and moved the ink around a bit (and added some) to make it look a bit more hand painted. I added the sentiment from the set by stamping in Versamark and heat embossing with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. So pretty!! The image was cut with a Stitched Mat Circle Die and put up on Dimensionals. A few Gold Metallic Sequins are a nice touch to add a bit more gold.
I think you are going to LOVE all the inspiration from the hop this week! So many beautiful bundles!! You are sure to be totally wow’d by Erica at your next stop. Have fun on the hop!
