Teacher Gift, Part 2

Here's the second installment of the teacher's birthday gift. Looks like I will have to make it a triple play to get the last of the pictures in. The post-it-note holder is made from chipboard coasters covered with DSP and bound together with the Bind-It -All and of course there is a matching pen. I had to use the 1" O-wire as I was out of the 3/4" which would have been much better and the only local store that carries it was out as well. I have been hoarding my Hodgepodge Hardware so I decided to step up the cover with Jenny's monogram and the HH.

This card was actually posted earlier, but as I have a habit of doing, I embellished a little more after the initial picture was taken. The center of the Filagree Flower Designer brad uses a Circle Ice Rhinestone Brad.

Jenny's favorite color is purple so I am sure you have noticed the "theme" going on here. I tried something a little different by stamping in Craft white and then mixing together SU! White EP, Iridescent Ice EP and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter then heat embossing. The glitter efffect does not quite come through in the picture.

Nothing fancy here except a rather blurry picture, sorry. This is a second stamping after coloring with markers and misting then stamping on watercolor paper. Around the edge is faux stitching and then double matted on circles using the wonderful Circle Scissor Plus. Another piece of HH was used but I mixed together some Crystal Effects with a little reinker to color the inside of the ribbon slide. The background is the En Francais stamp. I also removed the Circle Ice Rhinestones from the brad part and adhered with glue dots. I will get the last installment out in a little bit and then we'll put this project to bed! Thanks for looking.
