Ribbon Week: Serene Silhouettes
Two November Stampin' Up Specials

Guest Projects: Flower Arrangement and Frames

I've got some special guests today in my patch of blogland - two lovely ladies who have been customers and class regulars since way back when I first started with Stampin' Up in 2008.  Thanks Cecile and Claire for letting me share your gorgeous projects with the crew here in cyberspace.

First up is Cecile's beautiful flower arrangement.

Isn't it just gorgeous.  What a beautiful gift it would make for someone special.  Hmmm - for someone VERY special!!

Here's the materials Cecile has used for the project.  "The flowers and the leaves were all made by using the Big Shot Dies and the Large Scallop Circle punch with Stampin' Up cardstock.  Then large brads or some large self adhesive 'sparkly' buttons for the flower centres.   I used florists wire and tape, oasis floral foam, and a small round vase with shredded cellophane to cover the oasis."

And one more view ......

Just fabulous - and it'll last for ages without any water, bonus!!

Next up two terrific framed pieces of art from Claire - just perfect for popping in a child's bedroom. 

I love these owls .......

Materials include the owl builder punch, the leaves are from the bird builder punch and I think that is the background woodgrain stamp.  We've got the woodgrain embossing folder too now which would work well also. 

Here's another frame from Claire with a nautical theme using The Open Sea stamp set and some nautical DSP (retired.)

A big thanks again to Cecile and Claire for letting me share their projects.  (I knew you'd love them.)

Happy creating everyone,

Cheers, Sue

PS I am creating this week too = creating a BIG mess as I embark on attempt number 347 to clean out my study and transform it into an area a little more conducive to feeling artistic!  So far I've gotten to the "drag a whole heap of stuff out into the living areas and make a big mess" stage.  Wish me luck.  :-)

Good luck! Unfortunately, the trickier bit is keeping things neat and tidy rather than cleaning them up in the first place.

Wishing you luck!
Love the girls projects - TFS - the flowers especially are fantastic.
