Me and 15 other demonstrators in Julie Kettlewell's team (Julie's Jems) are taking part. We have each created special and unique projects using new Stampin' Up! products and will be sharing them today on our blogs.
All you have to do is hop from one blog to the next using the buttons at the bottom of this post and enjoy the crafty loveliness! (If you've hopped here from Jane's page, you'll have seen some fabulous creations already!)
I really love the More Amore product suite in the new Spring/Summer catalogue so I was inspired to create something with a love theme - especially as it's coming up to Valentine's Day. I decided to make a 'Love' wall hanging.
I started with some old coasters and I covered these in the More Amore designer series papers.
I cut out the letters with the typeset alphabet dies and my Big Shot and then just went crazy embellishing each coaster with hearts, flowers, butterflies, pearls and and rhinestones! I think you can get away with going a teeny bit over the top for Valentine's!!
The bunting behind the 'L' was made with a stamp from the Hearts a Flutter set and matching framelit die. The hearts are punched from the More Amore papers with the small heart punch.
I punched out two flowers with the Blossom Punch and added an Itty Bitty punched flower in the centre with a large pearl on top (you can find these in the annual catalogue!).
The butterflies - a stamp from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Bloomin' Marvellous - were punched out with the brand new Bitty Butterfly punch.
I couldn't resist making a couple of spiral flowers too, and some small flowers punched with the Itty Bitty Punches. The red heart is cut from a sheet of the More Amore papers and the newsprint heart is the First Edition designer papers punched out with the Full Heart punch.
The colours are Primrose Petals, Pool Party, Real Red and Very Vanilla.
I hope you like my project - please leave a comment before you hop onto to the next blog, which is Sharon's!
