Today I decorated 2 notepads, both very different from each other.
The first I used card stock and used Apothecary accents and ribbons to keep the note pad closed. The second I decorated a DVD case (SU stamp case) and then decorated the note pad. Enclosed in that is a bead covered pen.
Here is the first:
The cardstock is Rich Razelberry with Sweet Taffy DSP. I used the same measurements I used in yesterday's blog here But instead of using tags to keep the note pad cover closed, I die cut 2 Apothecary accents in Rich Razellberry, and cut off the tips. They were both embossed with the Polka dot embossing folder. For each die cut I punched a 1" white circle and a 3/4" Rich Razzelberry circle, adhered then together and attached them to the die cut. Then I punched a hole in the middle of this. White taffeta ribbon was thread through these holes and tied in a bow to keep the note pad closed.
Stamp: Kinda Eclectic
Inks: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzelberry
Papers: Rich Razzelberry, Sweet Taffy DSP, Whisper White
Accessories: Apothecary Accents framelit, 1" circle punch, 3/4" circle punch, hand held punch, white taffeta ribbon, Polka dot embossing folder, rhinestones
The second one is in a DVD case?
I coloured the image using a combination of blendabilities and watercolour pencils.
I then decorated an RSVP pen by wrapping sticky tape around the pen in a spiral pattern and rolled it in red microbeads. The beads stay on really well.
