All in a Twitter (CCMC213)



Found a few minutes to play and I ran my little fingers over to Create with Connie and Mary to see what their sketch was for the week. I loved it so I decided to play along!


I decided I’d use products from the Twitterpated variety (designer paper and fabric) and I just got the new stamp set From my Heart so I was off to the races.


I used the colours from the Twitterpated Suite (Basic Gray, Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Island Indigo and Riding Hood Red). You’ll notice the back vertical panel…I used Morning Cup images embossed with clear embossing powder, sponged and then faux stitched to keep with the teapot theme in the main image.



I first used my Big Shot and cut a partial Top Note out of the designer paper. I then tore a strip of fabric, ruffled it a little and tied a bow with some Baker’s Twine. Lastly, I used a small torn and embossed (with Stripes) piece of Certainly Celery to complete the three strips as indicated in the sketch.


Next, I punched a large scallop circle in Island Indigo, roughed it up and affixed the stamped image (stamped in Basic Gray). I actually used the second largest circle from the Circles Big Shot die and it worked perfectly with this image.


I stamped the image again on Baja Breeze and cut it out and for a bit of extra colour, I added a partial flower from the Boho Blossoms punch in Riding Hood Red on the bottom with a little rhinestone.


Thanks for stopping by!
