Love Letter DSP and Top Note Die

A little project that I put together to show how pretty these papers are - it's a fact, until you get these stunning papers in your hand it is hard to appreciate their quality and simply how gorgeous they are - I'm sure all of papers will be changing in the new catalogue and already I am excited to see what will be on offer - I have already promised myself that I will be using them so much more over the coming months and I'll be putting them into your hands as often as I can - and hopefully you'll fall in love with them too.

The colours for the project are Riding Hood Red, Black and Very Vanilla - the amazingly useful swirl from the Season of Joy - buttersoft striped grosgrain ribbon in the black and vanilla colourway - not forgetting the use of one of our jumbo brads - effortlessly put in position using the cropodile.

The embellishment is put together using the Oval All stamp set, Four Frames stamp set - and punching out with the matching oval and frame punches - can't beat Stampin' Up! for that - love the combination of stamp and punch for real mileage from your crafting items.  Cute little metallic brads complete this element with just a touch of Riding Hood Red cardstock peeping from behind - pretty!

The versatile Top Note Die - exclusive to Stampin' Up! - along with the Bigshot, is used to create the project - cut from mountboard, Designer Series Paper and then the inner pages cut from an artist's paperstack - all held together with an 'O' ring - sorry the proper name escapes me - decorated with a little ribbon.
