I mentioned that I had heaps of entries in the February Paper Belles Stampin' Up! Team challenge. The team had to use Basic Grey, Crisp Cantaloupe and Gold along with a stamped image, texture and at least one brad on any type of project. I have shared some of the entries here on my blog. Some I was unable to capture to a good standard on photo so I haven't included them but I wanted to share two entries which I thought were beautiful.
Karen's entry was a clean and simple card
The image is stamped with a stamp from the You're Lovely set from the Sale-a-Bration range, coloured with a light touch of gold ink and cut out using the Deco Labels Framelit dies. The Champagne Glimmer Paper behind the sentiment is cut with the same framelits.
I love the glamorous texture added by the ribbon behind the image and sentiment although it is has discontinued. The shot black and grey satin sheen adds luxury and texture to any project. The brad ties it all together.
Nicole's project was so cute too
Nic has also used the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper along the top of the stamped image (and around the whole box) and punched the edge with the Scallop trim Border Punch. She has textured the negative cut off part of the card with the Petals a Plenty TIEF and stuck that beneath a strip of Champagne Glimmer Paper around the top of the box.
Additional texture has been added with the Antique Brad and the Natural Trim and Linen Thread bow at the bottom.
The Fancy Favour Die has been retired but is still a popular and versatile tool to most paper crafters.
Love it! Hope you do too!
