Dress Up with Apothecary Art Framelit

Well, the Dress Up Framelit series will continue!
I can't stop creating mini designer dresses.
This project uses the Twitterpated DSP for the dress,
a different pattern for the background layer and 
Riding Hood Red card stock for the jacket.

To make the jacket,  cut 2 pieces/copies
of the dress, in a color that coordinates with the base.
The picture below shows how I positioned the 
Apothecary Art Framelit to produce the 
the jacket front.

"Trim" 2 jacket fronts with the Apothecary Art framelit
 positioned as shown (reverse framelit position for the 
right jacket side).  Glue them together
and use the Adorning Accents Border Edgelit
to trim the bottomAdhere the jacket to the
dress, accent with Rhinestone buttons and your
dress is complete.

The sentiment is from Ciao Baby, punched out with
the SAB Petite Curly Label Punch.
the Marina Mist card base was embossed with
the Framed Tulips Folder and the card was assembled.

I hope that you enjoy!

Llama Spring Hop 2013!

Welcome to another Llama Hop!!
Baby, it's a good one.  Don't you love the new
Spring Mini and SAB items!

You've likely arrived here from Buffy's Blog
and enjoyed her wonderful projects!

Here are my contributions:

Ok, this fish just cracks me up.  I used to enjoy
fishing, so had to make a fish card for this hop.
The International Bazaar DSP banners are intended
to look like some kind of underwater growth 
attracting fishy attention. 

Sets:  By the Tide (Spring Mini), SAB Vintage Verses

Colors:  International Bazaar DSP, 
Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White

Other:  Markers, Rhinestone eye, dimensionals

This card is my version of a "formal"
invitation.  The Dress Up Framelits enable so
many cute cards and projects.
Set:  That's the Ticket (Spring Mini)

Colors:  Perfect Plum, Basic Black,
Whisper White, Velum Cardstock

Accessories: Dress Up Framelit Dies (Spring Mini)
Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder,
Ticket Duo Builder Punch (page 183 main catty)  
Black 1/8 inch Taffeta Ribbon, Rhinestone, Dimensionals

Here is one more project made with the
Dress Up Framelits.  Depending on what DSP
you use, you can get a modern looking dress,
or retro style. 

Set:  Bring on the Cake

Colors:  Sycamore SAB Designer Series Paper,
Soft Suede, Pacific Point

Accessories: Dress Up Framelit Dies
Framed Tulips Embossing Folder,
Bitty Banners Framelits (main catty p 191)
5/8 inch Flower Trim (Spring Mini p 5)

That's it for me.  Now hop on over to
Debbie Martin's blog, so see her delightful ideas!
