July Blog Hop

I can't believe another month has come and gone. If this is one of many stops you've already made on the blog hop, I hope you are enjoying everyone's beautiful creations. If this is your first stop make sure to stop by each blog and leave a comment so all the ladies know you enjoy their hard work.

For my first project, I am sharing a card I made with some leftover material from a card class. I had the pre-cut card stock lying on my desk and it kept getting moved around and I kept having this nagging feeling like I needed to use the pieces before they just got swept into my scrap pile. So I put myself to the challenge to use the pieces for a new card.

This is what I came up with using the Blooming with Kindness stamp set. It is a great birthday card to have on hand.

Items Used:
Stamp Set- Blooming with Kindness
Card Stock: Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon, Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder
Other: Big Shot, Chevron Embossing Folder, Garden Green Marker

The second project I made is a project I've been wanting to make for a year. Last year at the SU! convention one of the presenters made an adorable cork board covered with our fabric. I don't remember what happened to my picture of it but this is my version.
I glued some cork board onto some chip board and then covered it with some Timeless Portrait Fabric, added the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding so that it could be hung. To add a little decorating I die cut the largest label from the Apothecary Accents die, a butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies die, and a couple small butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. I planned to glue some of the small butterflies onto some thumb tacts but I can't find mine. I guess we'll have to use our imagination for now.

Items Used:
Timeless Portrait Fabric, Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies Die, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Large Peals, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding

I made a cork board at one point, prior to SU fabric. Yours is so fun! :) Great job on the coloring for the card!

Tonya said...

Rose, great card. I really like the colors and stamp set. It isn't one that I own but is one that I have looked at a lot. Also great job on your cork board. Hope you find your tack soon. :-)

Rose, your projects are great! I love the card- Wisteria and Eggplant are so pretty together! The covered corkboard is awesome. I really should make a few of those for my stamp room!

That chevron is my new favorite EF. Love your use of it!

Shellie G. said...

Love both your projects Rose. the card is BEAUTIFuL!I love how you stamped the flower on the colored CS.It makes the image very striking. Covering cork with SU fabric is such a simple (yet practical) idea. Most people wouldn't think that an orginizational/display tool could be so pretty :-) TFS!

Kim Ryden said...

Annie Lee said...

Heather said...
