Vintage Vogue

This is the first card I have made using the new stamp sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog, the Vintage Vogue stamp set most reflects my style.  I went outside my comfort zone of Earth Elements with this card using so saffron, and not quite navy colors, making my background paper with  not quite navy stamped  on very vanilla card stock. I used the so saffron ribbon from the Ribbon Originals on page 182 IBC and the medium size twill tape from page 183 IBC that was stamped with the same pattern as my background paper.
The other items I used were a ribbon slide from the very vanilla hodgepodge hardware kit page 178 IBC,  the Finial Press Textured Impressions Folder page 195 IBC and Scallop Square bigz clear Big Shot die.

Thanks so much for looking Cindy

Fabric Flower Pins

These Fabric flower pins are a fun project you can make with your Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Flower Folds Die.  Back in September while at  Founders Circle with Stampin' Up! in St. George Utah several ladies were wearing flower pins like the one I made.  I went to a local craft store in St. George and purchased the supplies to make my own, I am the kind of person that needs to make thing as I see them while the idea is very fresh in my head.  My new friends and  I put our heads together and made one for ourselves.  Last week we made these at my downline meeting, it is great to see how each lady makes a few changes to make it their own.

1. choose at least 4 fabrics that coordinate and  sparkly tule

2. cut 4 flowers of 3 of the sizes

3. fold each flower in half and lay in a stack on top of each other moving two petals to the left each time, when they are alined correctly you will see 4 different colored heart shapes

4. Baste the 4 half flower folds together with thread so they are 1 layer, you now will need to do the same thing with all 3 sizes of flower folds. Place the largest flower layer on the bottom adding your tule in between each layer. 
Now you can sew the layers together permemently, add a small piece of tule and a button to finish off your flower pin.

This flower was made using the 3 smaller flower sizes, the one at the top was made using the 3 larger sizes.
I think I will wear the smaller one on my brown winter coat and the larger one attached to the cloth bag I carry.
