Today, I am sharing with you a Sampler that I found from Joanne Mulligan…..changed it up a LITTLE, but still wanted to give her credit!
Here is her piece:
First, I changed the background to black, changed up some of the sentiments, did the flower in right corner and Eiffel Tower different, Then I changed the background layer to some of the pieces.
Secondly, for the Eiffel Tower and the right top corner flower I stamped them on White then colored them with a Smoky Slate Combo Blends. I also added a BUNCH of Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems that I have been hoarding (I’m not the only one that does that, am I?) plus some Champagne Rhinestones……can’t have too much bling, right? MOST of the bottom layer is Champagne Foil for all but the small Blue squares.
To make lining this up MUCH easier, I first put the pieces already done onto a piece of 11 1/2″ sq piece of black cardstock, each outside piece goes to the edge of the black. then this was put onto a piece of 12 x 12 black. It really takes away the guesswork and stress of getting them in the proper position. Stampin’ Up! has retired the Black 12 x 12, thankfully I have some left over.
Measurements for this are: ***
Top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right are 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
All square small pieces are 2 3/4″ sq
Middle piece is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
*** this is for the Base pieces only, take off 1/8″ – 1/4″ for layers over the base.
I hope you like my take of Joanne’s great sampler! There will be a Special class either this month, or next month. The cost will be either $30.00 for my team members or $35.00 for those who aren’t. Of course everything will be pre-cut for you to complete this! To be expected, you will be doing your own stamping! What’s a Stampin’ Up! class without stamping?!
Below, you will find all the product that I used for this Sampler, click on any of the images to be taken to my OnLine store! If you shop with me, I will be sending you a file with over 30 tutorials for you to use!
