morning I went to the hairdressers to get my hair done ready for the
weekend, and this morning I’m off to get my nails done!
isn’t only stamp sets I buy and don’t get round to
using……………it’s also embellishments!
Yesterday I decided to
have a play with the Mini Embroidery Hoops that are in the Spring/Summer
Catalogue (page 14).
The size of the hoops co-ordinate with the A Happy
Day Stamp Set, as well as the two New Scallop Circle Punches – 1 1/8″
and 1 3/8″.
The only projects I’ve seen made with the hoops are with
stamped images from the stamp set inside the hoops, and (I imagine)
popped up on Dimensionals.
have made mine a little bit differently, in as much I have tied mine to
the smallest Mini Embroidery Hoop, with the little deer suspended on a
piece of Linen Thread.
Without recording a video, the only way I could
think of photographing the hoop hanging lose is by tilting the card
forward – see the last photograph.
used three stamp sets for this card:-
A Good Day for the
Touches of Textures for the background behind the deer and behind
Confetti Celebration for the sentiment.
also used five different punches!
Banner triple punch to
fishtail the end of the banner
Ticket Tear Border Punch for the
decorative strips down both sides of the banner
1″ circle punch for the
1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to layer the deer onto
Label Punch for the sentiment, which I stamped with Basic Black Archival
colour scheme of my card is Berry Burst, and I chose the brick wall
design from the Painted with Love Designer Series Paper (DSP).
top Whisper White layer, I dry-embossed it using the Brick Wall
Embossing Folder but I didn’t like the look – it looked crowded.
dry-embossed another sheet, but this time I used the Simple Stripes
Embossing Folder, from the Spring/Summer Catalogue, with the stripes
finish decorating the front of the card, I added five self-adhesive
sequins in Berry Burst, and then popped a small Rhinestone in the center
of each – it’s amazing how much of a pop they give the sequins!
the card I adhered a layer of Whisper White CS, on a layer of Berry
When I first started my card, I was going to use a die cut of the deer, but it was too big for my needs, so I adhered it inside the
That’s about it from me today, so I hope you have a great day, and until tomorrow, happy crafting!

What a sweet card!! I haven't used the brick side of the painted with love DOS because I guess I just couldn't think of what to do with it. I really like how you used it, Jan. Same with the wooden hoops which I'm going to try to get. In all, just a very beautiful card!! Thank you for sharing. God bless and have a beautiful day!
Hi, Jan. I found using the hoops a bigger challenge than the DSP. I'm also playing with the other wooden elements we have – definitely somethng different to work with! God bless you too, Jan. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

What a great idea Jan, I tend not to purchase the embellishments (1) because I am not so keen on these on cards and (2) when I do I forget I even have them to use! LOL
Hi, Lorraine. I know exactly what you mean! When I first saw them, I thought it was a strange idea, but I like a challenge and decided to go for it! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
