Projects Using Fabric

We had a good group at the Fun With Fabric class this morning.  We made two cards and a flower keychain, all of which used the beautiful Twitterpated Fabric from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  This fabric is only available until Monday, 4/30, so be sure to get yours before it's too late.  The projects also use several items from the Accessories retirement list, which are only available while supplies last.  Some of the items are even discounted!

I used the following retiring items on this card:  Scallop Circle #2 die, Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch (40% off), Circle Fire Rhinestone brads (25% off), and Finial Press embossing folder.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, which thankfully is NOT retiring.  Card stock colors are Baja Breeze and Whisper White.

 I used the Finial Press embossing folder on the flap of the envelope.  I just love how elegant this makes an envelope look!

 I used the retiring items Vintage Vogue stamp set and ticket corner punch on this card.  I also used one of the flower punches from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and a plain old hole punch for the flower center.  Card stock colors are Riding Hood Red, Pacific Point, and Whisper White.

 Here's a little bonus project using Vintage Vogue.  We didn't make this in the class, but I thought you might enjoy seeing it.  The bookmark was cut with the Two Tags Die and embossed with the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.

Here's the keychain we made.  I got the original idea from Erika Clark.  She posted instructions, too.  You can see her post here.  The big pearl in the center is available in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It's bigger than the ones in the big catalog.  The Pear Pizzazz ribbon is retiring (25% off).  There is felt on the back to help hold the flower together.  It looks cute when the felt backing is the big flower from Blossom Party die because the petals stick out a bit.  I used the Scallop Circle #2 die for this one, but have since bought the other die because the keychain looks much cuter with the petals.

Hope you've enjoyed these projects.  At the end of the class I shared a couple other tips, like how to layer the Blossom Punch and how to unmount a wheel so it can be used as a clear mount stamp.  You never know what you might learn at one of my classes.  The next one is May 22 (evening) and again on May 23 (morning).  If you're local to the Garner/Raleigh, NC area I hope you can make it.

You can get retiring items, Occasions Mini catalog items and any other Stampin' Up supplies that you need at my Online Store.  Thanks for your support!

I love all of your projects! The keychains turned out great, and I love the torn stripe fabric on the Friend card. As well as the embossed flap that matched your card. Super cute! Thanks so much for linking back to my blog, so glad you like the
keychain project! :) Erika

Hey, Sue. I never thought to emboss the flap of an envelope--clever thing, you!
