"Today the Stamp Simply Designers were challenged to create a White on White project -- LOVE that look! But they were given some options -- their projects could be Ivory on Ivory or ANY super pastel shade as long as they kept the scheme monochromatic and light within the shade they chose. Personally, I can't WAIT to see what they came up with!!!"
As you know, I love a monochromatic look, so not as much of a challenge for me (wait until next week...hehe...it's a REAL challenge...shhh...).
As you can see, it's a little sign that I can hang from my china cabinet in my dining room. It was a bit difficult to get a good picture, so please bear with me.
I began with a piece of cardboard, similar to a spiral notebook backing. K and Company "Visions of Christmas" 12 X 12" pad worked perfectly for this project...the pad is mostly filled with wonderful, double-sided, traditional Christmas colored sheets, but I found one gorgeous creamy print with the word "Noel" running along the lower portion.
I layered my single sheet of creamy dp over the cardboard, making sure that my "sentiment" was correctly placed. I used a Copic marker to darken the sentiment a bit; then added chunky glitter to the sentiment and edges of the sign.
Then May Art's 5/8" lace, threaded through with May Art's Silk, was placed over a border of May Art's Pleated Satin Ribbon.
I picked up the idea for this "rosette" from a pin on Pinterest. I took strips of 5/8" x 8.5" cream cardstock, cut them in half to make them 4.25" long, glued the tips together to make single teardrop shapes, then glued the teardrops together to make the "rosette." I used a hot glue gun for quick gluing.
To finish the rosette, I added chunky glitter, and two layers snowflakes (Spellbinders Snowflake One, no longer available, but other Spellbinders Snowflake dies are HERE) and a vintage mother of pearl button to finish. Fun!
I really love how it turned out, and wish that I could have done it justice with a better picture. Anyhow... I have a quick and easy CAS white on white to show you as well...
Just one of those "husband needs a thank you card NOW please" designs...just a bit of CuttleBug embossing on shimmery cardstock, Spellbinder Petite Oval die layers (check with Sharon for availability), dimensional tape, and a JustRite "Thank You" sentiment from "Fancy Frames" (on sale!). Quick and easy!
