Hello! Well...here goes - I decided to be brave and take on the Use 10 Embellishments Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I just started raiding around in my stash - and instead of using 10 of the same things, I wanted to challenge myself to use 10 DIFFERENT embellishments. It feels a little crazy, but I figured I might as well go for it! Since I had many of my elements extend off the card edge, and I used several different Papertrey Ink products, I decided to also enter this into this weeks PTI Made it Monday Challenge - Oversize Embellishments Packaging as well. So, in all it's wild and crazy glory, here is what I made:
So...my map paper and yellow stripe paper are from a Studio Calico 6x6 paper pad. Sentiment and hearts are from 2 different PTI stamp sets - both stamped with PTI ink.
I used a doily die cut from My Craft Spot, the cloud and mustache are from My Creative Time, and the heart is a Fiskars punch.
I tied some jute twine around, tied on a button, and added a stick pin.
The bottom banner is attached with adhesive, but also with a tiny Tim Holtz paper clip. I also added some black bling, and some wiggly eyes over the mustache on the heart.
And here is the matching oversize envelope:
So my 10 different embellishments are: Doily Die Cut, Cloud Die Cut, Heart Die Cut, Mustache Die Cut, Wiggly Eyes, jute twine, stick pin, button, bling, and paper clip. There are more than one of several of the items, but 10 different and distinct items!
So...what do you think? I'm still not sure if it is fun, or just plain crazy!
