This post was a stop on the Royal Blog Tour April 30-May 3 2010.
I am featuring projects made with the For All You do set, shown here in the catalog (p. 118):
And, following is what I did with it! This is a very versatile set with lots of options from the different elements. I tried to use the different elements so you can see the versatility! Make sure you make it all the way to the bottom for Blog Candy!! Click any of the pictures for a larger image so you can see all the details!!
First up is this bright Mothers Day card using Melon Mambo & Crushed Curry and featuring the flowers from the set. The card base is Melon Mambo textured cardstock. On the Whisper White Top Note, I stamped the large flowers first using the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get perfect placement. Then I added stems in Old Olive and the smaller flowers. Then, I stamped all the flowers again on another piece of cardstock so I could cut them out and layer over the original ones for dimension. I used a sponge dauber to add ink to the edges of the cut flowers for extra dimension. I sponged all the white edged, added Vintage Black brads to the flowers, tied a Melon Mambo ribbon around and added they saying from Well Scripted on Scallop Ovals.
Second we have this Elegant Eggplant creation featuring the flower block image. I embossed the blocks by stamping on Whisper White with Elegant Eggplant craft ink and embossing with Clear embossing powder. I cut the squares out and layered onto a strip of Basic Black. I tied a Black Gingham ribbon around the strip at the bottom and added Black Vintage Brads at the edge & between the squares. The background is textured with the Finial Press embossing folder. Saying is punched withe the Word Window punch and layered onto the Modern Label punch & die.
Third we have this Scallop Bag in Regal Rose-sorry the color isn't good. The sun doesn't shine here when I need to take a photograph! Anyway, this is a great die for the Big Shot! I just started using it and absolutely LOVE it! Regal Rose Cardstock, rolled first with the Kindness Jumbo Wheel in Regal Rose. Edges were sponged for accent. White Taffeta ribbon at the top. For the flowers and butterfly, I stamped first on Whisper White and cut out. I stamped over with the dot image in Craft Whisper White ink. Cut out and add Black Vintage brads to the flowers. The medium flowers were attached to the scallop flap with mini glue dots. The saying was stamped on Whisper White and punched with the 1-3/4" circle punch. Small flowers were stamped randomly around the edge. Others were cut out and attached. Edge is sponged. The decorated circle was attached with dimensionals. The large flower and butterfly were attached with a double (thick) dimensional so they would stand out further than the circle.
Fourth, we have this Top Note Quilt Card. I hadn't done one of these recently and thought this set would work perfectly! I think it did! Click the picture to see all the details close up!! Card base is Rich Razzleberry Textured cardstock. The quilt blocks are from the Cottage Wall DSP pack. After cutting the Top Note, I ran it through the Big Shot a 2nd time using the Petals a Plenty embossing folder. I sponged the edge of the Top Note with Rich Razzleberry ink. I tied a White Taffeta ribbon around the Top Note and layered the saying, this time punched with the Wide Oval punch, over the ribbon. The small flowers were stamped once in Rich Razzleberry, then again with Versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. The butterflies were stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White and cut out. I them stamped the dots image over them with Versamark and embossed with Iridescent Ice EP. Love it!! Butterflies were attached with a small piece of dimensional below the body.
