And Blog candy!
For this weeks project I wanted to do something a little different, I have been loving working with fabric, as I am a quilter too.. I love fabric, so anything to incorporate fabric into my stamping makes me happy!
To start this weeks Project I got out my Basket and Blooms XL die from Stampin' Up! and ran 2 pieces of felt ( I used off white) through at once. I knew I would want to make more than one, lol!
For this project I only needed the basket pieces. I put the others away for use on something else.
I folded a small piece of pink felt in half and placed it over the small butterfly on the Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die from Stampin' Up! and ran it through the Big Shot.
I placed a butterfly on the basket where I wanted it and stitched it in place using lavender floss ( 2 strands) Then I used a pen to lightly draw my antennae.
I used 3 small off white pearls from the Pretties kit from Stampin' Up! and stitched them on for the body, then stitched the antennae.
I used a bright pink floss to stitch up the basket. I did on side at a time, then I stitched the bottom on.
as you can see from this photo I added a butterfly to both sides of this basket... I will only add one the any others that I make... I was having so much fun that I wanted it to be pretty from both sides!
