So I have just noticed that I haven’t even posted everything that I’ve wanted to from Convention today. Please stay tuned for more things that I’ve learned from Convention. Today, I created a pin board that was inspired from the Stampin’ Up! Convention. It was demonstrated by the one and only, Donna Griffith! Here it is:
Ta Da! Isn’t it pretty??????? I’m not even 100% finished yet. I’m waiting for my very pretty black stripped grosgain ribbon to arrive… and I need to buy some shorter pins so that I can actually use it as a pin board! hahaha
I used the new and fabulous Timeless Portrait Fabric (122337), the 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon (120992), and on each corner a Filigree Designer Brad (112577).
Here’s a closer look at the little something I added at the bottom… Everything I used is current SU product, except for the ribbon that you see in this picture.
Sorry I forgot to take a whole picture of the piece! whoops… But here’s what I used for it, the top is a butterfly from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die (118138) – big shot needed, the new designer frames impressions folder (123130) – big shot needed, Forever Young Stamp Set (122570), and retired ribbon.
The new IN color Island Indigo is my NEW favourite colour!!! Well…may it’s still tied with Cherry Cobbler, which has been my number one since they’ve brought it back to be a regular colour last year with the huge colour renovation. You might be wondering why I haven’t used much of Cherry Cobbler in my cards? Because I tend to be stingy with the things I love most… LOL I like to hoard it all!!!!
Anywho…. i took a close up of this part of the board because there’s actually a lot going on here that gives it a much fancy effect. I first cut a strip of 2″ paper, stamped it with the largest image from the Best Friends Forever (122807) Stamp Set. I then embossed it with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder (120175). THEN I spritzed it with the gold smootch spritzer (118770)! I generally have to spray and wipe the nozzle if I don’t want big splotches on the paper. It came out very nice I must say….
WELL I HOPE YOU LOVED MY PIN BOARD PROJECT AS MUCH AS I LOVED MAKING IT! 🙂 Happy Saturday everyone!
