Sassy Crafts DT

So I made it into round two of applying for the Sassy Crafts DT!!! Out of the 5 ladies that were picked only two will get onto the DT. So the final challenge for us was...we had to make something without any ready made embellies. So we had to make our own embellies. After a long think this is what I came up with...


Here is my card
All the papers are by Cosmo Cricket and they are called Fleuriste. Gorgeous papers! I've stitched around the edges with a grey thread and in a zigzag stitch. The image is a House Mouse stamp and is called Wreath Love. I have coloured it with promarkers.

Now onto the embellies.

The blooms have been made with handmade papers which I punched with two different sized flower punches. To decorate them I stamped onto them with black stazon using a Stampin Up stamp from the "Simply Said" set. I then adhered the smaller one to the centre of the larger one and then added a little gem to each one. I used 3D foam pads to attach them to the card. The little bow at the top right has been made with a scrap of material. I stitched around the edges to tidy it up a bit. I then tied it in the middle. We were not allowed to use ribbon so I made this to look like a ribbon. Finally I made the two hearts with shrink plastic. I used the same SU set "Simply Said" to stamp onto the shrink plastic. I coloured in the image with a sakura gelly roll gold pen and a sakura clear star pen. I cut around the images and punched a hole in the top of each of them. I then shrunk them down. To "hang" them I threaded a gold thread through each of them and hung them from another handmade paper bloom.

So fingers crossed now!!
