Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is written by Susie Nelson. She shows us how to create Spirelli – String Art. For my sample I used two different strings: Caribbean Twine from the Twinery and 20 count pink thread from Lizbeth (Hobby Lobby). I cut and embossed Neenah Solar White cardstock with the second and third smallest die from the Beaded Circle Nestabilities dies and wrapped my string around the scallops.
I first thought to use the Spirelli circles as flowers, but I can’t help myself. I am in LOVE with Echo Parks Holly Jolly Christmas paper and thought I could use them as funky snowflakes. I added a button in each snowflake center with Linen Thread.
A sentiment from Verve’s Frosty Flakes was stamped in Frayed Burlap Distress ink on a 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ strip of Holly Jolly Paper. It was adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ paper from the same paper pack. Both pieces were stitched to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Solar White cardstock. White Organdy Ribbon was tied above the horizontal strip. A button was tied over the bow with Silver Iridescent Ribbon and the layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. Parts of a Rhinestone Finesse Swirl next to the Spirelli circle finish off the card front.
