Ways with embellishments…

     Posted by Norine on September 27, 2017

Hi, hello!

Recently I taught a class at the store in Winkler for DIY embellishments and we made a dozen different types of embellies and one of the most fun, was when I put out an assortment of die cut papers and bits of things in muffin tins and the students were invited to select pieces and layer them up to create a cute embellishment.

Well, since you couldn’t all be there to attend the class, and since I had a few pieces left over afterwards, I made a variety of embellishments that will now be available in the store for purchase.  They look something like this.

Because of the nature of the supplies, there are no two embellishments exactly alike.  Each package contains a variety of 6 different pieces, small, medium and large.

To give you an idea of how they can be used, I made a couple of cards and a tag.

The cards were made by inking up a portion of a larger background stamp, using black ink and heat embossing it.  Then I layered one of the finished embellishments on top, added some Nuvo drops and just that quickly the card was finished.

Since that was so much fun, I made a tag too.  I stamped the tag first with a polka dot stamp and gold heat embossed that before adhering another embellishment.

These embellishments are perfect for scrapbook pages as well…and I would have loved to show you that as well, but y’know, a day still only has 24 hours in it.  *sad face.  The next thing I want to try though, is making these kinds of layered embellishments with the variety of die cuts that accompany a whole paper line.  Added to chipboard, corrugated cardboard or cork, I’m sure you could create some very cute combinations!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great rest of your day!
