Denim brooch using Boquet Bigz L die

I love it when I can use my Stampin’ Up supplies for more than paper crafting. It makes me feel not so guilty of my crafting hoard. Anyone else there too? I have 3 teenage boys that go through clothes like there is no tomorrow. I try to upcycle them when possible. I used the Boquet Bigz L die to cut the solid flower out using my Big Shot and stacked them alternating the petals. I then just tacked them in place with a needle and thread using an X stitch. I then attached the rhinestone monogram using the button loop on the back. I love the way the upcycled denim ruffled. This lovely brooch went fabulous with my blue denim striped maxi dress and white cardigan!

“Crazy About You” gift set in Bermuda Bay

I’m back after a long hiatus and can’t wait to get back into the swing of things in the blogging world. I live in rural Arkansas and have been having lots of trouble with our ISP and that makes it hard to blog with no ISP and spotty cell service. I guess that’s the price I pay to get away from the rat  race. 


Today I want to share a trio of cards I made for a good friend using the Crazy about You stamp set by Stampin’ Up. I bought this set because of the sentiments that come with it but I wanted to find more uses for the artwork. The sentiments I used are from the Trust God stamp set. The color palette feels so fresh and springy with Bermuda Bay, Pool Party and Wild Wasabi. I used the splatter stamp from the Gorgeous Grunge set to give the cards a little texture. The Wild Wasabi makes me think of the tender green leaves that are just exploding on the trees around my house right now. Everything seems to be green or yellow at the moment. Can you say pollen? Ugh 

 
I hope you enjoyed today’s trio and thanks for looking.
