Rustic Home Decor

This past weekend we had a bridal shower for my future daughter-in-law! They have chosen a rustic theme for their wedding so, naturally, the shower was all decked out in rustic style decor. I made a special little gift for them and it was all wrapped up in this pretty little package. The new Wood Textures Designer Series Paper was the perfect DSP to use for this shower. I mean, what can be more rustic looking than actual wood, right? 🙂

And of course, the gift was handcrafted with a variety of different rustic themed products from Stampin’ Up! I had so much fun creating this gift for them. It’s a little home decor piece that is personalized for the bride and groom. I was going to save it for their wedding but decided that I couldn’t wait! lol

Do you remember the herringbone pattern that I shared with you a few weeks ago! Well, that is the pattern I used to create the backdrop for this piece. The bride loved the gift! I really enjoy creating personalized gifts. This home decor piece is super simple to make too. You just need an alphabet stamp set with your favorite style of letters and some fun things to embellish it with. Oh, and you also need a frame. I actually used an old frame that I had lying around. Worked perfect! It will be a wonderful keepsake for them for years to come!

Grouted Herringbone Pattern

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  I hope you had an opportunity to join me for the Facebook LIVE session on this past weekend!  I showcased some fun ways to use the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) including how to create a herringbone pattern, like this one, on your cards.  If you were unable to join me, no worries…the video session was recorded so pop on over to my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/stamptasticdesigns/ and check it out!

This was one of seven different projects that I created with the herringbone pattern. And the pattern on this card is a bit different from the others. You will notice a slight gap in between the pieces of Wood Texture DSP. I wanted to achieve the look of grout in between the pieces of designer paper. I started with a piece of basic gray cardstock cut to 5-1/4 x 4 inches. Each piece of the Wood Textures DSP is 3/4 inch wide and varied in length. As I created the herringbone pattern, I left about a 1/4 inch gap in between the pieces as I adhered them to the cardstock. It created a fun look! Then I simply embellished the card with die cut images from the Seasonal Layers Thinlit set. Super fun and pretty easy to create!  Be sure to check out the video! Enjoy!

Thinking of You

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Today I have a fun project to share with you that showcases the use of scraps. As you know, I have been playing around with some scraps of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create a whole host of herringbone patterns and projects!  Well I ended up with very small triangular shaped pieces that, at first, I was just going to throw away. But I played around with the pieces and created these little squares with the Wood Texture DSP. This was definitely one of my favorite creations!

The card is super simple to create! It’s a little putzy to adhere all of the triangular shaped pieces to the squares but well worth it!  To make this card, start with a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of one of the light colored patterns of the Wood Textures DSP, stamp a sentiment on the bottom and tie a bit of linen thread around it before adhering it to your card front. Cut out three (3) squares of Cholocate Chip cardstock at 1-1/4 x 1-1/4 inches. Cut a few 1 x 1 inch squares of the Wood Textures DSP; then cut each square diagonally in half and then in half again. Create a pattern with 4 of the small pieces of DSP and adhere them to one of the Chocolate Chip squares. Once you have created 3 of them, layered them across the linen thread as shown and adhere them with a few dimensionals. For the finishing touch, I embellished them with a few flowers cut from some scraps of very vanilla cardstock. Enjoy!
