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.
