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!!
