There's a good reason I'm showing you this, since it's something cool I learned while I was there. The beads are affixed using a staple... super easy but a pretty neat way to use them on a card!
I absolutely love the "Bali Breezes" patterned paper and that's where the orange piece came from, as well as the large flower I cut out as a main accent. Some Iridescent Iced Tempting Turquoise punched paper, a Pretties flower and a Fire Rhinestone Brad round it all out.
Carrie Cudney demo'd a version of this card on the Main Stage when she showed us some "Eastern Eclectic" ideas to go with that new Style Watch from the Spring/Summer 2008 Collection.
Her card used a white Rub-On but we'll be stamping a birthday greeting in Purely Pomegranate instead. Don't worry -- I have a whole weeks worth of Rub-on projects I'll be showing you in February. I've been stamping up a storm and saving them for you, plus all the cool ones I took pictures of in Palm Springs.
On to the Leadership displays....
Here's a cool project she demo'd that uses a piece of wood that's been altered with some of the Designer Paper, and those larger black office clips that have been decorated as well. You could use this to hang cards from or use in some alternate home décor way as well -- the applications were endless!
Now here's a card where she altered HAIR CLIPS and then added them to a card; wouldn't that be a cute gift for some little girl you know? I know my little niece Sarah is addicted to all things hair-related right now, so you had better bet I'll be making her some cute spring-themed ones for Easter.
And this yet another accented clip incorporated into a card. See what I mean about how fun and easy these could be to make??? Use your punches, brads, flowers and your imagination to come up with your own applications!
I'll leave you with this final project, and yet another way to use one of those office clips, but this time using our new Felt Flowers. Ain't it purdyyyy?
Please leave me a comment if you'd like to see more... as I have loads of Leadership pictures I'd love to share.
Thanks for sharing - you are always so generous with your ideas and samples. On the "staple" card how were the beads attached? Do you thread them on the staple once it's on the edge...yikes..having a moment here. LOL
I will be in the TO area in March.
I would love to get together with you.
