Good Sunday morning!!
Today I want to share some projects I made for CHG.
They send me some gorgeous stuff to create with.
First up is a tag on which I will explain how I did the background.
First I cut my tag and bookplate using Tim Holtz Die Tag & Bookplates
I used cArt-Us white cardstock for the base of my tag.
Then I made my own stencil, by using the smallest scalloped die,
from this awesome cArt-Us scalloped square die set:
And here's my home made stencil.
I simply placed the little, square die, over and over again and run it through the Vagabond. I know it isn't perfect, but I like it anyway.
So I placed this stencil over my tag and sprayed it with Rangers Perfect Pearl Mist in kiwi, and dried it with my heat gun.
For the top of my tag: I adorned it with some ribbons - crochetted flower -
Prima Marketing mini roses and some Ranger Diamond Stickles.
This GORGEOUS paper is from the cArt-Us paperpad Roses. So sweet!
I glued the lace and pearls down using Beacon's 3 in 1 Craft Glue.
The bookplate was treated with Tulip white Puffy Paint and some
Iridescent Medium by Windsor & Newton.
To highlight the sentiment spot, I used some Gesso.
The next card was a real quicky!
I always like to have a few cards on hand, so I used a sentiment that can be handy at all times.
The base of my card was cut form cArt-Us white cardstock, as well as the distressed piece behind
my center piece of paper. The papers are from the cArt-Us paperpad Roses.
I added some flat back pearls which I got over HERE
using Beacon's 3 in 1 Craft Glue.
I also placed some ribbon and eye-lashes trim along the sides.
I added a crochetted flower and hand made leaves.
This is how I created the center piece:
I cut out an oval shape using my craft knife. Then I wettened the paper and let it sit for 15 seconds.
The paper was now ready for shaping. I rolled and pinched the edges, until I was happy with the design. I then heat set it, using my heat gun.
and here's the last project for today:
I saved this plastic bottle for a while now and thought that it would be a great item to make a cute project. So..... save the trash ladies!!!! lol
I sanded the bottom part for a frosted look. Added 4 pieces of PP from the
cArt-Us paperpad Country Rose.
I punched some holes at the sides of each piece of paper and laced them together.
This little frame is originally a silver plastic frame.
I added white Gesso to it, and I covered the sides with Tulip white Puffy Paint.
On the lid I glued some pretty lace, using Beacon's 3 in 1 Craft Glue.
The little yellow roses are from Papermania, and the tiny leaves are from a faux plant.
The top of the lid was completely covered with lace. (cut in 3 pieces)
and adorned with some flowers and bling.
I hope you like these projects and picked up some idea's.
Ask your LSS for these products, cause they are so fun to work with.
I hope you all have a lovely sunday, and maybe you can get yourself some *creative* time.
