Today was a whirlwind! I planned and cut paper for the technique class tomorrow, and then I wanted to work on the Victorian Pennants project before I started on a project for Mike. (I always think “Victorian Penance” when I write that.) Pennants are really big right now, but I wanted something a little more elegant and grown up. I always think of Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla when I think “Victorian,” and, of course the new Delicate Doilies set that will be in the 2011-12 Idea Book & Catalog.
Stamp sets: Pennant Parade, Delicate Doilies, Fabulous Phrases, Tiny Tags; Ink: Very Vanilla craft, Blushing Bride classic; Blushing Bride stampin’ write marker; Paper: Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride, Sahara Sand, Vellum card stock; Other: Clear embossing powder, heat tool, pennant punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Itty Bitty punch pack (scallop), brads – metallic and subtles, stampin’ dimensionals, mini glue dots, scallop trim border punch, small oval punch, Whisper White baker’s twine, basic pearls, decorative label punch
I was really happy with the way it turned out. After I finished, I remembered the heart & pearl brads I bought last week. They would have looked really nice on the little flowers attached to the sentiment tag. It was fun deciding which embellishments to use, and I really like the little flowers I made with the Boho Blossoms punch.
Don’t forget you only have a couple more days to order from the 2010-11 Idea Book & Catalog. Lots of stamp sets and embellishments are retiring, so don’t miss out on the chance to own them! Visit my web site to see the lists and place your order today!
