Rich Razzleberry

As you may be aware SU have a promotion running this month.

1-31 August, 2011

As if getting new Stampin’ Up! products wasn’t fun enough, when you place a £75 order, or host a £250 workshop, you’ll also receive a free gift from Stampin’ Up!

Your gift includes a beautiful, exclusively-designed cosmetic bag, along with Rich Razzleberry 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, and a 24-piece Clip Assortment

The ribbon is the wide striped ribbon which is gorgeous to work with so I tried to find a couple of way to use it today.

Here are my attempts.

The first is a basket using the Scallop Envelope die. I cut four envelopes and pieced them together. I got the idea whilst in Australia last year but we did not have the die in the UK at that time.

The colours are rich razzleberry and regal rose. The stamp set I used is Silhouette Sentiments, a level 1 hostess gift.

The cards are six very simple 3" x 3" note cards and envelopes.

The second is also made with the scallop envelope die. Only two this time . The colours are the same as previously but the stamp set is the little flower from the stamp set Funky Four.

The little sentiment is not in our current catalogue it is a set I obtained whilst overseas.

This box holds four, again very simple, 3" x 3" note cards.

I was looking at a blog hop this morning where the American demos were sharing new ideas with the products from their latest catalogue and was inspired to have a go at this. I stamped the En Francais background stamp first, then stamped the Medallion background stamp with Versamark and embossed using clear EMP. Sponged the edges of the medallion and then cleaned it off the clear image. I used naturals ivory, very vanilla and rich razzleberry card stock, the ribbon and very vanilla satin ribbon. The sentiment is from the stamp set Occasional Quotes.

Thanks so much for looking
