Hello! Welcome to my blog. I’ve been looking forward to using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies, and they were perfect for today’s project.
Inspiration came from two challenges: Fab Friday, for showing off Stampin’ Up’s five, new, In Colors.
And, TGIF for using the Ribbon Ruffles technique.
Since the word “hello” has five letters, it was the one I chose to use with the new colors: Terracotta Tile, Rococo Rose, Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, and Pretty Peacock.
The gingham pattern in the 6X6 Designer Series Paper adds interest to the pretty letters, which I triple layered for thickness.
The letters are glued toThick Whisper White Cardstock, which has a scalloped edge, made with a Be Mine Die. Organza Ribbon (retired) was used with Glue Dots for the Ribbon Ruffles Technique. I’m always reaching for my Carpet Pin, and it helped in placing the Glue Dots.
The card base is Thick Whisper White, embossed with the Button Button Embossing Folder. Right before I took the pictures, I added the three Pearls.
I’m so glad Stampin’ Up gave us these Hand-Lettered Prose Dies. If you missed out on the Large Letters Dies, no worries. You can say so much more with these medium sized letters, and they’re available today at a great price. Just click on the picture in my Product List to go shopping at my store. Thank you!
P.S. For the sake of accuracy, I should tell you, I mistakenly, used the “y” for the “h”. But, it does give an extra pretty loop!
