They are obviously not all Stamping' Up! products for the jute twine, the baubles and some of the ribbon and bling, but I was really happy to be able to use up quite a few retired SU items which I have been hoarding!!
And I am totally in love with pastels for my home this year but I did make some traditional coloured items and a few in fantastic copper!
The Mint Macaroon ribbon is just so lovely for tying. The Metal rim tags retired a long time ago but I still have quite a few, so I used some of these. The thread is individual strands from the wide Burlap ribbon (also retired) - it's a bit thicker than the linen thread. I used Soft Sky ink and alcohol and some shimmer paint (I wish we could still get this fabulous product) spritzed onto the tags. The letters are cut using the Typeset Alphabet big dies (yep, also retired) and layered up on a layer of coaster board (mm-mm also retired). The second set of these used Blushing Bride glimmer perp and another sneak peak, wooden hearts coming soon!
My next jar uses many more current products. The Flourish Thinlits are so delicate and gorgeous so these are 2 layers as well, and glued onto the jute jar, then wrapped with copper thread to add a little security. It' so fine it's just a gorgeous detail. The Stitched frailest oval is mounted on a vellum oval, the Merry is again a few layers. I have used the white jute ribbon for individual strands this time and the cute little embellishment is a sneak peak from the coming catalogue.
Delightful Dijon ribbon also goes with the copper- and that biscuit cutter is just so cute wrapped with copper metallic thread. And Rosemary not any smells fantastic, you can pretend it's a mini tree
The last samples fit with the colour Challenge at GDP this week.
