How about starting off Monday with a WOW? Today's Mojo Monday Sketch (MOJO158) by Julee Tilman will get your wheels turning. Plus, I whipped up another 1 Minute to "Wow!" Video Tutorial (you told me liked the first one) to help busy stampers create pretty cards and details in a flash.
Something as simple as adding a rhinestone or threading a skinny piece of card stock through button holes can really zip up the "wow" factor on a paper project. DID YOU KNOW that the Stampin' Up! 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon slips neatly through the holes of most of our larger Designer Buttons?
I first discovered this delightful detail thru a card shared by one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals, Katy McGloin. Here's my 1 Minute to "Wow!" Video Tutorial to demonstrate this quick tip. Note: Stampin' Up! Taffeta Ribbon is my favorite for tying knots. Very "cooperative."
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- The clear mount version of the Aviary stamp set made popping this charming owl in his cage a snap. I find it easiest to stamp the cage first and then layer the bird.
- Black Flourish Designer Jewels bring on the bling for both the flowers and the top corner of the focal point. I use the sharp ends of my Paper Snips to remove stick-on jewels and slide them off right where I want them.
- My inspiration was this Ethan Allen advertisement. The striking mix of deep pink and black grabbed my attention.
