Spirelli Card

I thought I had posted this card long ago but I don't see it on here anywhere so I guess I didn't. :-)

This is created using the Sweet Pea DSP from the Occaisions Mini catalogue that is now retired.
I used the small and medium Spirelli punches that I've had forever and the large scalloped circle from the scallop circle #2 Big Shot die.
The cardstock I used is Chocolate chip, So Saffron and Old Olive. Whisper White for the card base.
The ribbon is a satin chocolate chip that is also retired.
I used regular quilting/sewing thread in a similar color to the old olive and in a metallic copper on the chocolate chip Spirelli flower.
I then put them all together with a 5/8 inch chocolate chip jumbo brad. To finish the Spirelli embellishment I used some left over copper peel off sticker negatives that have been sitting around begging to be used.
Next I used the Tiny Tags stamp set and Chocolate Chip Classic ink to create the tags which were punched out with the Medium Jewelery Tag punch. (These both can be found in the new Idea Book and Catalogue).
They were then attached to the embellishment on the card.

I'm pleased with the card. It is different!

Thanks for stopping by.

Decor Elements Fun

I can't believe that it has been so long since I have posted....I apologize to all who have checked in and there was nothing new. We were away on our awesome Alaskan Cruise tour for the rest of June and first of July and then I have been trying to catch up.

I thought I would share the pictures of my grand daughter's room that she and I had fun with. These Stampin'Up Decor Elements called Ginormous Flowers are retired but they look great on her walls. I had purchased them for her and sent them to her earlier in the year but her mother was a bit intimidated by them so we put them on the walls while we were there in July on out way home from Alaska. I was amazed at how easy they went onto the walls.

Thanks for stopping by and I will have some new things to share soon. Sharri
