Happy Monday!  It's a new week and I hope it's starting off perfect for you!  I stamped the entire weekend and feel so refreshed.  It's good to just pull out random stamps and get busy.  Here in VA we are experiencing cooler temps so you can FEEL that Fall is just around the corner.  I'm sure we are not finished with the hot days but I'm going to enjoy the Fall teaser while I can.  

This morning's project was created for my Stamps in the Mail participants.  Each month I send them bonus ideas to show even more techniques and fun that they can use with the stamp set we are using.  This morning I wanted to show them an idea outside of just a card using the From My Heart stamp set.  

TIP: This little guy was created using LOTS of Hot Glue.  Do you have a Hot Glue Gun? It's really a big friend of mine.  I use it so often that I keep it on my desk all the time now.  When making Rosettes the Glue Gun is a handy dandy thing and it's doubtful your project will fall apart.  To make this I just did a lot of layering.  Starting with a circle punch to layer the Rosette onto and then adding the Orchard Harvest DSP and Seam Binding ribbon behind to flow from the bottom.  The tea bag is just wrapped around the back of the circle punch so whoever I give this to they can easily take it off and enjoy a cup of Tazo.  Isn't that fun?

Below you will see a list of products used for this project.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: From My Heart

Ink: Soft Suede, More Mustard

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla

Accessories: First Edition DSP, Orchard Harvest DSP,  Clear Buttons, Music Wheel, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Sponging, Hot Glue Gun, Vintage Trinkets, 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Circle #2 Die Cut, 2 1/2" Circle punch, Tazo Tea Bag

Tulle Ribbon

One of the things I'm pretty excited about in the Holiday Mini is the Tulle ribbon release.  It's so pretty and it even has a scallop edge to it.  It comes in three beautiful colors, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso.  Isn't that fantastic??

Here is a card made using the Tulle:

This card is just S-H-A-B-B-Y! I started this card using the From My Heart (#126557) stamp set that's new this catalog year. Fantastic stamp set and coordinates with our Labels Collection Framelits Dies found on page 191.  I stamped this at the top using Soft Suede ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.  I also used the new Jumbo Wheel from the Mini catalog Etruscan Elegance and embossed this across the Crumb Cake cardstock using the NEW Espresso Embossing Powder.  Oh golly that's exciting.  This was matted onto a piece of Fan Fair DSP.  Then I just wrapped that Tulle around to suit my fancy and tied in a bow.  Viola. Simple card but really shabby chic.  Oh, one last thing. In the new catalog you will find the coolest little spritzers.  Two come in a package.  You can find them on page 179.  Add a little 90% Rubbing Alcohol with a little Shimmer paint and a reinker of your choice and POW you have a really fun shimmered project. You can see a little pink shimmer at the top of my card.  I added the new Raspberry Ripple to my White Shimmer Paint and the mix was just a nice sweet pink.  I also squirted a little of my Spritzer Tool on it using a Crumb Cake marker. It's a gotta have type of tool. 

Here is the list of goodies I used:

Stamps: From My Heat

Ink: Soft Suede, VersaMark

Cardstock: Crumb Cake

Accessories: Etruscan Elegance Wheel, Espresso Embossing Powder, Spritzer Tool, Crumb Cake marker, Spritzer bottles, Fan Fair DSP, Pearls, Tulle Ribbon (Crumb Cake), Vintage Trinkets, Natural Buttons
