Fringed Flower-Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop

Welcome back to another Sizzix blog hop!  I’ve been participating in these hops since the beginning, and I’m always excited to see all the different ideas designers have for the dies.  Today’s hop features the Scoreboards Fringed Flower die by Eileen Hull. Plus, anyone leaving a comment on the Oh My Crafts Blog is entered to win their Flower Layers #9 die giveaway.

fringed flower scoreboards die project by carla schauerThere are so many opportunities for creativity in this die!  Since it cuts all types of materials, including matboard, chipboard, and fabric easily, I had a hard time deciding which materials to use.  Along with the paper from the Tradewinds Collection that DCWV sent along for me to use, I opted for some printed duckcloth and solid cotton fabric I’ve had in my stash that coordinated nicely to create a fall feel to my flowers.

I started by cutting out lots and lots of the Fringed Flowers in all the different solids, patterns, and materials.  When I had a big pile to choose from, I started mixing and matching all the pieces, layering until I had 15 variations of the Fringed Flowers.   All the flowers together remind me of fall garden mums, which I love!

I used a variety of random brads for the flower centers, some of which I altered with stamping ink or Clearsnap Smooch to match the project colors.  The brads also served as the method of attaching the flowers to the twill ribbon I used to make a banner from the single elements.  I also hung inked chipboard letters from large copper jump rings in the photograph above.  The letters can be taken off easily if I decide I’d like to hang the banner on the mantel, or on a cabinet that needs to be opened often.
