What inspires you to create something? If you're like me, it's pretty much anything, ha-ha….back in May, I had a 12 x 12 canvas sitting on one of my worktables, and my pre-order from Stampin Up arrived. Of course, everything stopped, stuff got pushed out of the way, that box got plunked up on my table, and I spent a couple of hours opening everything and oohing and awing over it all….I love any box that arrives from Stampin Up, but let me tell you, Demo pre-orders are the BEST – because you know you are one of the first to be playing with new product, LOL…
ANYWAY….I FELL IN LOVE with the FLORAL DISTRICT DESIGNER PAPER…I had it all spread out, and there was that canvas sitting there!………and look what happened!.
DId I have fun or what? ha-ha….I got out the FUN FLOWERS BIGZ DIE, my Big Shot, a couple of other goodies, and went to town.
I glued chipboard to the back of one of the pieces of designer paper to create the "create" word in the bottom corner. a tip for you, once you get them cut out, use a emery board to sand the edges.
I also used the new FANCY FAN EMBOSSING FOLDER to emboss the leaves, and those pretty little blue flowers, are punched with the Boho Blossoms punch.
Stampin Up has the most amazing FLAWLESS FABRIC ( pages 170-171), and ESSENTIALS DESIGNER FABRIC and I sewed strips together to make the hanger.
I love the frayed edges, and to decorate each corner, I added Designer Buttons and bows created with Whisper White Bakers Twine.
and here is a close up of some of the flowers for you….the smaller ones were also created with the FLORAL FUSION SIZZLITS DIE
