Big Blooms Post-it and Clippie



Another Post-It note desk top cover. You can find the instructions here, or at SUDSOL if you are a demonstrator. This is all made with the Au Chocolat Designer Series paper from the Stampin'Up! Spring mini. Thanks to a great tip by demonstrator Linda Heller, I learned that you can brayer any color right over the paper to make custom colors! So, the polka-dotted paper is all brayered with pretty in pink classic ink. The big flower from Big Blooms is embossed with pink embossing powder on the same paper, although not brayered. The center is punched out of the same paper again (brayered). I added vintage brads to all the dots. That is layered on another piece of the designer paper, sponged with chocolate chip ink and attached to the top lid of the cover. The inside is chocolate chip card stock. Of course the Post-It Notes are pink inside. :)

Okay... the clippie is made with the new flower dies for the Cuttlebug. You can get them here. The center part is done with the tiny bubbles embossing folder, then gently rubbed over the top of my creamy caramel ink pad. You run the chipboard coasters through, then the card stock, then glue them together. Sandwich them with a giant clip in the middle with E6000. Let them dry overnight or for several hours. The ribbon is my all time favorite (a gift from Mounds) which she got from Cindy... our ribbon "dealer".

I can't wait to make more clippies with my new dies!!! Have a great day girls.... or guys.... people... EVERYONE, hope it's great. Thanks for stopping by!!

I do not need that choc designer paper. I do not need that choc designer paper. I do not need cuttle bug dies. I do not need cuttle bug dies. I do need to visit you so I can learn to make cool projects like that!

I almost choked on my coffee. Girl, those are so cute. I swear our minds totally think alike. It scares me sometimes. I just did a card the other day... the one that I said I had to go back downstairs in the middle of the night to stamp... to brayer over the choc. paper. It really turns out nice. Love it.

Where does one get these giant clippies (paperclips) and how long are they inch-wise. I am trying to find them for a stampcamp. I love the color you chose..but I hate that the cuttlebug keeps calling my name. I ditto pjbstamper!! Janet in NC

So very cute! Can you explain how you did the brayer over the paper without covering up the whole paper? I am a visual person and I just love what the result was but want to know how you got there! Thanks! Alex

And no more making Kimberly choke on her coffee - she got me into this stampin' business and I need her around *grin*

Cambria Turnbow said...

You just cut your paper to whatever length you need it, ink up your brayer with a light color and roll over it back and forth. The chocolate stays chocolate and the creamy color turns whatever color you are brayering on... try it... it's SO cool! :)

Thanks girls.... sorry for the coffee choke Kimberly! SNORT
