Victorian “Be My Valentine” Hand…

Rouching on Wrist

Hello there Lakeside Stamper Friends!

As I write this we are, yet again, getting slammed with another snow-storm. Will the snow ever stop? As a result of the snow, I had to cancel my Valentine’s Day Class and since I have all my other classes planned already, I’ve decided to do my posts on the projects for the cancelled class on my blog. This way, all of you hoping to attend the class can stay at home and make them while the snow falls.

Although, I love the way this victorian hand came out,  I would not have embossed the hand with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder on the Blushing Bride Card Stock. I used the Blushing Bride to resemble skin tone and now it looks weird to me. When I make the next one I’ll use only the Blushing Bride Card Stock without embossing the hand part or I’ll use another card stock color to look like a glove. Get it??

Victorian %22Be My Valentine%22 Hand

I began by  drawing a simple hand shape.  An easy way to do this is trace off a  hand onto a piece of cardboard, cut it out, making sure you cut in between the fingers. Make sure you also extend the wrist a bit to accmoidate the red ruffle.

Once I had my hand template I traced it onto Blushing Bride Card Stock, cut it out and ran it through my Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

I then punched a large Scallop Circle out of eal Red Card Stock, ran it through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder and cut it in half. I then adhered it to the hand at the wrist and trimmed the sides with Paper Snipes.

On a piece od Whisper White Card Stock I stamped the Be My Valentine Heart in Real Red Ink and cut it out leaving a bit of white edge around the heart. On one of the flowers on the heart, I added a Basic Rhinestone.

Detail Of Rouching Along the wrist, I did some rouching or pleating with White Organza Ribbon. There are several ways to “Rouch Ribbon.” For this project I simply laid a strip of Sticky Tape and folded the ribbon back in loops along the tape. I placed a glue dot on each fold to hold them down. I ran one end of ribbon around the back of the wrist and knotted it. On the top of the knot I glued a  Marina Mist Designer Button with a Glue Dot.

Detail Of I placed and adhered the heart between the thumb and index finger, On the ring finger I poked a Flower Brad through and on top of the flower Brad I placed a Basic Rhinestone.

I think this “Victorian Hand” could be made in many different colors such as Pretty-In-Pink, Concord Grape, Very Vanilla and Real Red for the hand. Switch up the colors for the scallop circle, heart, and ring as well. Just have fun with this. Send Me what you make and I’ll post it on my blog. Of corse it has to be made with Stampin’ Up! Products.
