I've got just a few things going on today~just got back from a trip for my Mother's 90th birthday ( can you believe it?!?!) and that was so much fun. Want to know what's not much fun? Having a crew here since yesterday morning replacing ALL the pipes in our house. It's a long story that you don't want to hear but the gist of it is that stamping something new to share with you has NOT been possible.
But I have a treat for you anyway - here's a 12 x 12 page I did for the display boards at Convention 09 - (don't think I've shared it yet? keeping my fingers crossed) using the Tree Trimmings set.
I love the versatility of these images because they can be elegant or trendy; reflect a retro or even a boho style. I went with elegant here, to match the photo from last year's Christmas tree. It was a bit of a challenge last May to make this sample because we could only use designer papers that were current and the Christmas choices were very limited. So I chose my color scheme and plugged in this pattern from the Flock Together series. Don't ever let yourself be limited by what a stamp or paper was designed for - that's the fun of creative stamping!
Here's just a bit more info about my page~
- I love the way the Organza ribbon dresses up the whole page and mirrors the pattern in the ornament in the photo. This ribbon easily wraps up any project beautifully!
- The ornaments from the Tree Trimmings set are embellished with glitter, square rhinestone brads, and silver elastic cord. These images are perfect to use to make your own embellishments.
- The title was cut with Stampin' Up!'s Join in the Cheer die. I trimmed it to use only the words that I wanted. Super easy!
I will not post supplies today - got to keep this quick, but if you have any questions about what I used, don't hesitate to ask me in the comments section. Hope that you'll be inspired to get out your stamps paper and ink and make something beautiful! I'm going to do the same and I'll be back tomorrow to show you what I made..
