Polka Dots are us!

By | 1st April 2016

Hello Crafters ,

As you  may be able to tell this post is all about Polka Dots…

I hope you will like the images that I share with you and am very happy for you to CASE (copy and share everything) them. I would be grateful if you could credit me if you post them on Pinterest or your own blog.

Here is a bit about me: http://stampingwithfiona.com/about-me/

Well I’ve spent my Easter weekend stamping hundreds of polka dots! Why – do I hear you ask?

I was making ‘Save the Day’ cards for a friends daughter who is getting married in 2017 and she LOVES polka dots. I had made some templates for her and she chose the ones below. The colours of Night of Navy & Blushing Bride were her choice of colour scheme and all the products used are courtesy of Stampin’ Up!

The first photo is one of the samples that I made to show the ‘bride to be’, I had to move the wording around so that the ribbon didn’t cover any of the wording. The second and third photos show my desk whilst I was working on my production line. I set myself the goal of making a certain number a day so that the task wasn’t too daunting and Im very happy to say that I met my goal. I punched out a row of 1/2 inch holes on a pice of card and that became my working template for the polka dots.

I used the rubber on the end of a mechanical pencil and dipped it into ink and then stamped it onto a piece of card through the template. I stamped 1500 polka dots by the time I had completed them all! That and tying the little bows was probably the hardest part for me.

I would very much like to hear what you think about the colour combination and polka dot theme so please take the time to leave a comment.

Happy Crafting

    Well done you. It’s hard work but when you see the brides face it will all be worth it. C
