New Home Embriodery Hoop

As promised I am back with another embriodery hoop project.
This time the occasion was a new home. The stamps that I have used are from lavina.  I have cut around the mushroom houses and put one in the background and stuck the other to the front of the hoop to create dimension.

Again I have followed the same recipe as before with a sentiment and stamping in the background, lavinia's fairy washing line, then decorated the ring with butterflies using glitter card and the die beautiful wings from Stampin up.
As the family have two little dogs, one a black pentland terrier and the other a dauchund I thought it appropriate to add the puppies from Richard Addams.  I loved the 'together' die from sizzix.

Flowers and a ribbon finsh this perfectly, with a small key charm just hanaging in the centre.

I have shown you the back view too as I think the little verse from lavina stamps is perfect.

I hope you love this as much as I do.

 Thank you for popping by, I will be back with a couple of shaker cards I have made soon X x

New baby embroidery hoop

Hi to you on a wet and rainy Monday morning.  But here to make you smile is a new baby project that I have recently completed for our friends who have become very proud grandparents of a little baby girl.

I got the idea from crafty Lou when I was at sir stampalot in Peterborough for our crafty get together before Christmas.

Instead of using a card blank as the base for your stamps and embellishments we have used an embroidery hoop.

You start with a 4 inch hoop, I have used a spellbinders scalloped circle die to cut the right size of background paper and card.
Then stick the embroidery hoop on top of the paper - really sticky white glue will hold this firm.
I have used many different embellishments to decorate, tiny alphabet beads spell out 'baby girl' the pink teddies were braid left over in my stash.

I made the rosette from the same background paper using a sizzix die  - the kind that you cut out straight then concertina and stick into a circle. The wooden embellishments I have covered with versamark and then embossed them with sparkly wow embossing powders.  The baby, washing line and words were from a lily of the valley stamp coloured using pro markers.                                                              
A little bit of ribbon and a sliver charm finish the project.

This is the back of the ring, as I said the pink card is just the right size to cover the edges of the embroidery hoop nicely.

I hope that you have enjoyed looking at my photos and that this might give you an idea to use for your next project.

I will be back soon with another hoop idea..... this time it is for a new home :)
Enjoy your week and thank you for popping by.
