It all started when I came across a blog called PagePeople- Stampin', Scrappin' and Gifts and a post about using up old DSP (Designer Series Paper). Hmmm, I have a bit of that myself. So I went to my stash and pulled out some Old Olive Prints Pattern paper. I printed out her very well done directions and proceeded to make a few wallets.
That was in June.
Fast forward to August and these wallets have been on my work table for a while now. What shall I do with them? I was mounting one of my new stamp sets - Herb Expressions and had a thought about how I could use that. There are four herb images with their names and what they are representative of. And there are four sentiments that go along with these representations. All of them deal with friendship, so I thought I would create this Friendship Wallet.
All the herb images were stamped in Basic Gray on Confetti White and either colored with markers directly or with an aquapainter.
All the sentiments were stamped in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla cardstock. The images were mounted on one side of the Confetti Cream card, and the sentiments on the other.
All embellishments are done with SU papers, punches, and ribbons. I believe one of the ribbons I used is retired, but you can substitute something current for that or use one of them twice. And of course, you can use current DSP instead of using up your retired paper, but what are you saving it for!?!
