Yay!! It's 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time. Today's assignment was to make a banner. I decided on a Valentine theme since I'm still in 'hearts and love' mode! Be sure to click an image to see larger views of the photos. They really don't do the pretty papers justice as they are.
So, here is the full banner outstretched. I love the colors and patterns of this paper pad. It's Devoted by Carta Bella, 6x6 size.
Can you see the teensy little heart on the blue ticket that says "you"? I cut this from the smallest of the stitched layering heart dies from shrink film. I love how it fit perfectly over one of the printed hearts on the paper. On the second heart I used the adorable hot air balloon and a "Fly Away With Me" sentiment. Embellished with two more of the layering hearts and prettied up with glossy accents. The cloud is cut from felt and stamped on directly.
For this embellishment I used MCT rolled flower die, and the medium sized layered heart for another shrinky charm. Love the tulle bow with the heart charm in the center.
The largest of the hearts and the focal point of my banner. Love of course! :) Pink bling and pearls....so girlie and sweet. I love it.
Another fab embellishment using My Creative Time stamps and dies with shrink film. I used the stitched postage frame to make this bitsy little frame. You can barely see the tiny heart in the bottom right corner stamped with "xoxo". The flower is a new design I tried using the starburst die from the Build a Banner set. Cut in a spiral and rolled like the other flowers, it turned out so cute with the pointy petals.
Here I have used the banner die for my sentiment and tucked a pretty leafy flourish cut behind. I've added red bling to it but it's hard to see in this smaller version. The sweet little hearts on the banner are shiny with glossy accents. The last heart I stamped using more "xoxo" stamps from the newest release, in addition to more layered hearts. The shiny heart you see there is not bling but glossy accents.
Real quick, here is another treat container, and another use for the popular test tube box ... a lollipop holder! It's not very visible but for the "collar" on the lollipop I used the stitched scallop and circle dies.
This adorable heart shaped sucker stamp is from the January peachy release. So cute! It's the perfect addition to my lollipop box. There are so many great stamps in that one set.
