This is the project we made at my, “Open House” on Friday. I used five of the new In-Colors to create a topiary, flower pot and a bird. I had these frames from some discount store and decided to create the project to fit the frame. Originally I wanted to paint the frames white but, after seeing the finished piece in the dark frame I thought it looked good. The frame works well with the Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and the gold frame detail ties in with the Crushed Curry Card Stock. I made a template for the flower pot and you can print it out in whatever size you might need.
This is the flower pot template:
And here are the pieces cut out of Melon Mambo Card Stock and Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper:
I did use the Scallop Edge Punch on one edge of the trim.
This is an enlargement of the flower pot. I adhered the Razzleberry Designer Series Paper onto Melon Mambo because there wasn’t enough contrast when I held it over the Whisper White background.
The rest of this framed topiary was layered with, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Crushed Curry Card Stock, A piece of Rich Razzleberry Ribbon was used as a base for the topiary. The frame itself measured 7″ x 14″. The leaves were cut using The Big Shot “Little Leaves” Sizzlet Die. The bird image from, Cheep Talk, was stamped in Bermuda Bay.
Thanks for lookin’!
Here is the Summertime Quilt, as if the title wasn’t clear enough. There was so much I wanted to include for summer I found it hard to omit some images. I tried to capture what was dear to me; flip flops, morning glories (A story I will tell you about soon), flowers, summer fruits, BBQ’s, flowers, honey bees and the 4th of July. I used Yo-Yo Yellow Card Stock for the background because it screams summer.
Below are some close ups of WHAT I DID:
For the title I used a piece Tempting Turquoise Card Stock and with Versa Mark I stamped the flip flops from the Just Beach Stamp Set. I covered the flip flops with White Embossing Powder and with a Heat Tool embossed the image. On a piece of Whisper White Card Stock I cut the word Summer using the Naturally Serif Decorative Strip and the Big Shot. I then mounted the letters on the Only Orange Card Stock strip. In the corner I placed an ice pop brad I had.
I stamped the Summer Soft, Morning Glory in Close to Cocoa Ink onto a piece of (3-3/4″ x 4″) Whisper White Card Stock, colored in the Morning Glory with Stampin’ Pastels and carefully tore around the image. I adhered the image onto the (3-3/4″ x 4″) Bashful Blue Card Stock and added four eyelets, one in each corner.
For the next close up I stamped the flowers from the stamp set Upsy Daisy in Regal Rose Ink on the (3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″) Blush Blossom Card Stock. I adhered the Blush Blossom stamped Card Stock onto the (4′ x 3″) piece of Green Galore Card Stock, added a Certainly Celery Ribbon knot, two Photo Corners, a Green Galore Brad and a rhinestone .
I love the set, Just Buzzin’ By so of course I had to incorporate it into the quilt. For this I used the new In-Color Melon Mambo Card Stock and Ink. On the (3-1/2″ x 3″) Melon Mambo Card Stock I stamped the flower from the Just Buzzin’ By Stamp Set in Melon Mambo Ink and highlighted each flower with a Signo Gel Pen. On a (3-1/2″ x 3″) piece of Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the bee hive and bees from the Just Buzzin’ By stamp set, colored in the images with Stampin’ Pastels and Stampin’ Up Write Markers and cut the images out. I used the Corner Rounder Punch on each corner, added a Whisper White Brads and put all the images together as shown below. I embellished the final piece with flowers and rhinestones. After all there would be no honey without flowers!
I tucked in other stamped images from the Tart & Tangy, A Flower for All Seasons and Only Ovals Stamp Sets. On the sunflowers from A Flower For All Seasons Stamp Set I added two small yellow pom-poms. The rest of the quilt I embellished with brads and an American flag, (not Stampin’ Up).
