We have been making cards this month using Stampin’ Up!’s Dress Up Framelets from the Spring catalog. I have to admit that I didn’t plan on getting any of the dress up product but when I kept seeing such cute things made with the framelets I just had to get them. Making these cards just reminded me so much of playing paper dolls as a child.
The framelets include two dress styles and a dress form and sell for $24.95 My stampers had a choice of making their dress with a little sweater, a dress with a sash, or a dress with a flower at the waist.
To make the pearl necklace use the pearls that are connected. Snip between them so you have 5 pearls and gently lift them from the paper backing. They will stay connected and you can curve them around the neck of the dress form.
To color the flower trim use the edge of a marker. There are 100 flowers in the package and with 40 different Stampin’ Up! colors (neutrals not included) imagine the possibilities for flower colors.
To create the sweater cut out a short piece of card stock using the dress framelet so that it comes just below the waist on the dress. Cut this piece in half down the center and then cut a little off each side creating an opening to see the dress under the sweater. Lay both pieces on a paper piercing mat so that they are next to each other. Place 3 of the smallest pearls down one side of the sweater and with the paper piercing tool punch holes on the other side corresponding to the pearl buttons.

In today’s class Donna Harold had a bit of a slip when she was cutting out her dress. She used that as an opportunity to be creative and came up with the cutest dress with a peplum, something I have been noticing is back in fashion. Donna, you are right in style with your dress
There is also a very cute stamp set that coordinates with the Dress Framelets and is called All Dressed Up.
Now I’m off to clean up from today’s class and start working on projects for next week. Thanks for stopping by.
