DT Project No 1 by Lucy - Featuring Teresa Collins' Save the Date

Hi, Lucy here, with my first make using the beautifully romantic 'Save the Date' kit by Teresa Collins. I decided to use the papier mache heart I had left from one of our previous Snazzys kits and painted it with Fresco Finish in Mermaid to match the duck egg blue of the papers. I then wrapped the silver and white ric rac from our goodies around the twine hanger. I covered the front of the heart with the paper called 'Ikat' which I stamped with the damask stamp from the clear stamp set using a peppermint ink pad. I then stamped 'Just Married' and 'Forever For Always Love' in Coffee Archival. They are lovely quality stamps!

Here's a view of the back where I stamped the paper all over with the 'Forever' wording, using some secondary stamping.

Returning to the design on the front, I wrapped the beautiful lace we were sent across the heart and glued it in place and threaded the end through the gorgeous diamante ribbon slider also in our kits. This provided a backdrop for the bride and groom wooden figures from the Prima 'Something Blue' icon set. You can just see in this sideways view that I have wrapped some 'Save the Date Decorative Tape' around the heart to neaten it off as I decided to get some of this too as I love this set so much!

I also bought a Teresa Collins clear stamp set called 'Tell your Story' which co-ordinates really well and stamped the butterfly in Coffee Archival onto a scrap of the Ikat paper, which I tucked behind the roses I made from Core-dinations cardstock and sanded. I popped the peppermint flowers from our kit in the centre, and tucked an arrow from the Ephemera Pack underneath.

I hope you enjoyed this, and I will be back on Wednesday with another make.
