So if you are a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.
I hope you enjoyed Pauline Bennets wonderful creations.....here are a few of my own
This turned out pretty cool considering it was made from mostly recycled materials...This candle centrpiece would look pretty on wedding tables...I started with a base made from a cardboard circle from an empty ribbon spool which I covered with alfoil..The leaves were cut from coke cans with the Leaves #2 die . I have embossed some of them with the Elegant Lines embossing folder. I used a hot glue gun to arrange the leaves over the base...the actual candle holder part is the bottom of a coke can and I added a bit of bling. The butterflies are Wonderful Wings embosselits and I used Vellum cardstock for those and added some bling to their centres
Those butterflies are soooo pretty...love em!
Sticking with the wedding theme, I made this bride card using a template I found on Jan Tinks blog. The Elegant Lines Embossing folder reminds me of beautiful bridal fabric.Her bouquet is made with a scalloped circle punched from vellum cardstock. The roses are actually quite small...I punched some 1 3/8 circles. I just cut them into spirals and rolled them up...I didn't use the whole circle, I just cut off the excess when the roses were as big as I needed.
I have to thank Jane Norrish for teaching me this wonderful technique..it's called double embossing and it looks so effective. The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder was brayered with versamark, then the designer paper was placed in the folder and run through the Bigshot...It was then heat embossed with Black embossing powder..I then added the Wonderful Wings butterflies.
Last of all a simple dress up job..I got this memo block at the junk shop for $1...what a bargain...I added a few butterflies and leaves just to tizzy it uop a bit..that's what I love about the Bigshot, it's so vesatile..not only for cards but to make everyday items look a bit special!
