At the South Pacific Stampin' Up!® Convention in May, all attendees were given a pack of Bohemian DSP, and I couldn't have been happier, because it was top of my wish list.
I tried one of the bold patterns first of all, but my Deco Label covered too much of that pattern. It was easy enough to turn the sheets of paper over and use the 'quieter' patterns, allowing the rich colours to show to greater effect. I've also used the second smallest Banner Framelit to make pennants from more paper in the Bohemian DSP, still the smaller patterned ones. I just altered the length of each banner to be able to show them off to best advantage.
I was planning to adorn the inside with more DSP, but then I had an 'oopsie' and smudged some Rich Razzleberry ink onto the Very Vanilla insert. Instead of ditching that piece and starting over, I followed the rules of card making, "When you smudge your work - embellish!" Because I am aiming more for a masculine card today, it wasn't suitable to add a tiny flower, the mark was a bit big for a candy dot, and so I broke out Stake Your Claim for the first time. What do you think of the linen thread tied around the base? Just a bit like tying plants to a stake with twine perhaps?
I was determined to use Oh My Goodies, because it uses the deco Label Framelits which are on special on the Weekly Deals in Australia this week, for $30.75. If you're in the market for Framelits, the other great deal this week are the Banners Framelits, 6 sizes at $33.75. It doesn't show the 'special' price in the product list that follows but rest assured that it does show in my Online shop. They have 200 of each available and it is 'while stocks last".
I'm on holiday from my regular daytime job and I'm loving a chance to relax (and not get up at 6.30am!). It seems to allow a bit more crafting time too.
