Good morning everyone! It’s the weekend and I couldn’t be happier! I have some projects to finish and peeps to see, it’s going to be a good time! Today’s post is a CASE from So Shelli. Last month there were a bunch of projects posted by Sara Douglass and I fell in love with this one. I thought it would be the perfect Wedding surprise for my brother and Erika on their special day. I only change some minor details but kept it mostly the same. You can see the original post here.
Where to begin! I cut out some First Edition Designer Series Paper with the Designer Rosette Bigz XL Die, I think it was three pieces all together. I used some Sticky Strip and a Jumbo Sticky round to form the rosette. A piece of Pool Party is cut out with the Oval Accents Bigz Clear Die and embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that are two of the scalloped pieces from the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die cut from Wisteria Wonder and stamped with the Distressed Dots Background Stam in Wisteria Wonder. I used the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlits Dies to cut out a piece of Elegant Eggplant and cut one in half and put that on top of the other pieces. A piece of Elegant Eggplant is flagged on both ends and mounted to that with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is stamped from the Forever With You Stamp Set in Elegant Eggplant on Pool Party. The butterfly is cut from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die in Pool Party and stamped in Pool Party with the Distressed Dots Background Stamp. I punched a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and pierced two holes in it and threaded some Pool Party Bakers Twine through it before adhered it to the butterfly. The greeting on the Very Vanilla flag is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and the “is” is stamped on a piece of Pool Party that is punched out with the Small Heart Punch. A piece of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon is tied just underneath it. The picture is backed with a piece of Pool Party and they are all adhered to dowels with Sticky Strip and hot glue. The jar has a piece of Pool Party that was cut out using the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die. I wrapped a piece of First Edition DSP around it, punched another piece os Silver Glimmer Paper out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and tied a piece of Linen Thread around it. To keep everything in place I filled the jar with small river rocks.
Erika and Jason both loved their little surprise waiting for them on their table and I hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you so much for spending some time with me today, I appreciate your visiting and love to read your comments! I hope that you all enjoy your Saturday! 🙂
