This was not who I was envisioning! But hey! Inspiration is all around us right!
To be honest, I really did like the pattern on Pee-wee's jacket and I wanted to replicate it. After analyzing my stash of stamps, I eventually decided to use the striped stamp from the hostess set "Basket for You". You can earn this set for free by hosting an online, in home, or catalogue workshop. If you are interested, just contact me for more details. Check out all of the images in the stamp set below.
I decided to ink up the striped stamp in the Smokey Slate Ink and stamped it in both directions on the Smokey Slate cardstock to achieve the look shown on my card. As far as creating the vest itself, I used a few of my Stampin' Up framelit dies. By die cutting with my stars and ovals, I was able to create the vest. I even have a template to share with you today so that you can visualize how easy this is! You're welcome!
Simple hey? I also have a template for you explaining how to create the dress shirt.
As for the bow tie, well I used the Stampin' Up Bow Builder Punch of course! Check out the video tutorial below if you haven't tried using this baby before!
After all of these steps, I just added a few of the Urban Underground Embellishments to make the vest buttons, and applied some Wink of Stella to finish off my project. These items make this project go from simple to wow!
