Hello Dear Petaloo Lovers!
My name is Bibiana,
and I am thrilled to participate this week right here
as a Guest "Blogger" Designer
as part of Petaloo's Blog HOP
with "Core'dinations" papers and "Xyron" adhesives!
I am invited to participate twice this week
with a Fall and a Halloween projects!
Here it is the fall project...
a Double Center Step Fall card...
To make the base of the card, follow the instructions on how to make the shape for the double center step card
For the base of the card, I used "Coredinations" papers..these papers have the particularity that when sanded they reveal a second color underneath... in my case I first embossed the panels with a fall embossing folder, then sanded the paper and here is the result, a two tone background !
I discovered this NEW little clever tool that "Coredinations" papers carries... It is called the "Dust Buddy", and what it is, it's a somewhat "damped"/ "sticky" dust cleaner... It really picks up all the dust left from the sanding...I was quite happy with it...
So if you do not know it I advise you to check it out ...it comes in handy, when you work with fine particles at your desk, such as glitter, powders or sand...I really liked it! no more flying/floating particles!
As for "Petaloo's" flowers, I am in love!
As many of you that already know them, these flowers are incredible to work with, they add instant WOW to any project!
The tone on tone cream tea stained flowers are made in 100% recycled cotton, and they can be painted!..
They are so soft to the touch and great to alter them..but I left mine in their original color!
As for the details on the flowers, see the pistils!
each flower comes with different ones...all is in the details, right?
For this particular white flower on the corner...I used some natural burlap trim cord underneath..
I punched 2 circles, make them as stickers with the "Xyron" machine and looped the natural cord shaping it in a flower then placed it underneath the white flower
Some natural burlap was placed underneath the flowers and added a butterfly die cut.
This card can be given at any occasion during fall, for thanksgiving or just to say thanks to a special someone
At the bottom I added the word "Thankful", die cut in gold mirror paper.
I inserted the die cut onto the opening of the "Xyron"sticker machine to add adhesive to the back of the word, pull paper, burnish it really well, peel and stick it to the project!
Finished the card with some other die cuts!
Here it is a side view of the double center step fall card all done with the gorgeous "Petaloo" Flowers, "Core'dination" papers and "Xyron" adhesives!
I hope you liked this project...
I loved working with "Petaloo's" flowers and trims!
