Silver Embossed Elegance

Our focal image today will be an uncolored outline sticker.

Supplies needed:

  • 5 x 6 1/2″ white base card
  • Silver mirror board pieces:  6 ½ x5, 5 5/8 x4 1/8, 3 3/8×3 3/8, 2 3/8 x 2 3/8″, a strip measuring 1 x 6 for your band
  •  White card stock pieces: 6 3/8×4 7/8″ , 5 ½x 4, 3 ¼ x 3 ¼, 2 3/8×2 3/8

For assembly, I cut all of my pieces first. I embossed all of my white card stock and then mounted them onto my mirror board. The smallest square I did not emboss to showcase my outline sticker.

Great card for an outdoor wedding, shower, birthday or friendship.

Polka Dot Bunny

IMG_2291

This colorful card screams Spring! The best part of Spring is all of the beautiful colors and flowers.

I started my card with a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2″ turquoise base. My green layer measures 5 3/8 x 7 3/8″. My polka dot paper layer measures 5 1/4 x 7 1/4″ and is wrapped with a pink ribbon. I die cut a large oval in a darker turquoise card stock and embossed it with the Darice folder called Polka Dot. I die cut a smaller oval in white card stock using the Decorative Ovals by Spellbinders.

I stamped the bunny, sentiment and butterfly from the Happy Spring stamp set by Rubber Cafe and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. I used GB8,GB10,PP1,DG3,DG4,OR1,LV1,PL2.

For my flowers, I stamped the Large Classic Petunia smaller flowers with black Staz On ink. I inked the edges of my Petunia petals Victorian Velvet and the centers with Dusty Concord and Barn Door by Ranger. I shaped the base of the petals with my bone folder and the tips of the petals with my Flowers Shaping Tool kit by Heartfelt Creations. I centered the flowers with white prills.

To assemble the card, I used craft foam to layer the focal image. I glued the flowers and leaves to the left of the oval. I accented the flowers with a white Stickles and the oval with pink pearls.

This card, or any of your creations, will surely brighten someone’s day. Share your sunshine and creativity with those who need a little “pick me up”.

Classic Petunia Clip Board

IMG_2282

I keep a clip board in my craft room that holds my brainstorming ideas.  It was an old clip board that my son had scribbled on years ago. I decided it needed a face lift!

I took the 12 x 12 paper with the wishing well on it from the Classic Petunia Collection by Heartfelt Creations. I attached the paper with Modge Podge to the clip board. I applied a top coat also. I added a small border to the top of the clip board and trimmed the excess with my Exacto knife. I covered the seam with a lilac lace and embellished with pearls.

For my floral embellishments, I stamped the Large and Small Petunia Collection flowers with black Staz On ink. I inked the flowers with Purple Passion and Very Berry chalk inks and Barn Door Distress Ink by Ranger. I inked the leaves with Feather Gray and Limeade chalk inks and Cracked Pistacio Distress Ink. For the centers of the flowers, I used white prills. I finished the flowers with a light dusting of Frosted Lace Stickles.

I attached the floral vine first to the left side of the clip board and then the different sized flowers. I tucked the leaves in between the flowers. I then attached some flowers to the top part of the clip board to complete my project.

Now my clip board will brighten up my craft room with the beautiful Petunias and Wishing Well.

I hope that you will brighten someone’s day and share your hand made treasures!

Bicycle Cart

This week I thought I would do some mixed media.

IMG_2331

I found this adorable bicycle cart in the SaCrafters (www.SaCrafters.com)  booth at the Anaheim ScrapExpo. All of the pieces come in a package and a youtube reference is on the packing for assembly instructions.

For my cart, I stained the wood with a dark blue alcohol ink. To decorate it, I used patterned paper, pearls, diamond gems, lace, buttons, ribbon and flowers.

This is the perfect size for a gift. The cart would hold a bag of treats, a bottle of lotion or gift cards. What a unique way to present a gift.

Stay tuned to see my Cinderella carriage by SaCreafters!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you were kind to someone today.
