Springtime Vintage Fabric Fun Flowers

The Springtime Vintage Fabric is just delicious and works
so well with the Big Shot dies.  

In this example, based on SU samples, I used the Fun Flowers
big shot die to cut 2 layers of the fabric and 1 of 
Always Artichoke.  The fabric was sprayed with Spray Starch
and "scrunched" in a paper towel. I sprayed too much, 
so be stingy with your starch.  It took a while for
the fabric to dry.

A loop of Rose Red seam binding was looped and
attached to River Rock card stock that had
been run through the Big Shot Finial Press 
Embossing Folder and then 
the card stock and (dried) fabric flowers were layered.
I threaded linen thread thru a Springtime Vintage
Designer button and attached.

The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was stamped
on Whisper White Card stock and punched with the
Modern Label Punch.  Pearls were added,
cause Pearls should ALWAYS be added!

Petal Cone with LetterPress

This is a little gift pouch made out of the 
Petal Cone Big Shot Die.  The LetterPress die,
inked with Versa Mark, was used to emboss
the pouch.  Springtime Vintage DP was used to
create the scallops that accent the Pouch.  Finally
Rose Red seam binding was added to form a handle. 

I made a small, 3 inch matching notecard
to go inside the pouch.  Always Artichoke seam binding
was added to coordinate with the Springtime Vintage DP.
