Good morning!!! Today I have some more gorgeousness from design team member Heidi Blankenship to oogle at 🙂 This is Heidi’s project for my September challenge, which was to choose one item from the ButterBeeScraps shop and use it in three different ways. Heidi chose to use Silver Flower Metal Filigree Embellishments (#182-P) to complete this challenge, and created a beautiful gift tag and birthday card.
Heidi created the background for the card and tag by first embossing white cardstock using the Rosalyn embossing folder, and adding Lavender Gelatos by Faber Castele to the raised image to add a bit of texture. She then created a border near the top of the card front using white lace trim and evenly spacing petals cut from the Silver Flower Metal Filigree Embellishment (#282-P) along the top of the lace (…number 1). She also used Lumiere Pearl Magenta and Martha Stewart Antique Silk paint to create a pink shimmer at the base of the flower petals.
Heidi also created a 3-dimensional flower by bending and layering several of the Silver Flower Metal Filigree Embellishments (#282-P) (…number 2). She completed the card by adding white pearl stamens to the center of her flower, and white flat back pearls to the border and corners of the card. Heidi also used Momento black ink to stamp the sentiment from the “Birthday Blessings” stamp set by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.
Heidi created the tag using the I Miss You Topper Inner Die Set 173E, A4 by Tonic Studios. She then cut the center from three Silver Flower Metal Filigree Embellishments (#282-P) and glued them to the background (…number 3). I think these little “stars” would create perfect snowflakes for Christmas cards and tags, too 🙂 The sentiment is also from the “Birthday Blessings” stamp set, and was stamped using Momento black ink.
For detailed pictures of how Heidi cut and bent her chosen filigree, please hop on over to her blog. …she’d really love it if you showed her some love while you are there. Speaking of which…I’d love a little love, too 😉 Thank you so much for popping on by! I hope you liked Heidi’s project and that you find inspiration to participate in the challenge this month.
