Our Creative Corner Fabulous Floss
A Great Good Saturday Morning to Everyone!
I am honored to announce that the Design Team at Our Creative Corner have chosen me to be Guest Designer for their challenge this week. Over the last couple of months I've won a Top 3 Award and Top Talent Award. I say this to encourage you all to hop over and participate in the fun challenge this week. All levels of expertise are welcome and the Design Team always have a wonderful array of samples to inspire you for the fun challenges they set each week.
When I read the email with the prompt for this week Fabulous Floss, Spirelli immediately came to my mind. I have been wanting to try my hand at this technique for quite some time but just couldn't decide what kind of a card to showcase it on.
Since Spring has sprung I decided on some pretty pink flowers. I used the 1 3/4" scallop from my Spellbinders scallop circle die, but most any scallop punch will do or you can even download some spirelli patterns and cut them out by hand if you search around on the internet. With all the neat tools around these days there aren't too many of us hand cutters left. I do love my Big Shot and dies, but the two smaller flowers and the little bees are hand cut.
I had a couple of colors of shiny pink embroidery floss which I split to one strand and wrapped between the scallops then added the brad for the center. After I ran the darker pink base through the tulip frame embossing folder and finished with all the french knots, I couldn't resist adding a couple of little visiting bees and a Happy Birthday sentiment. We've got quite a few family birthdays coming up in May so I'm getting a jump start on my birthday card stash.
It's been a pleasure bringing you my Guest Designer take on this fun challenge. I hope you all will hop over and join in so we can see what ideas you come up with to dazzle us with Fabulous Floss.
