I am so lucky to be on the guest DT for Tattered Inspirations. Every parcel you receive from Carol’s etsy store is like getting an amazing gift no matter how small your order is. It is packaged with a lot of love and care.
I was so happy to have two kits to work with a blossoms and a valentines kit. Here is what I got including the extras and wrapping:
(pic to come)
The first thing in my mind that I wanted to try was Claudine Helmouths techniques with Multi Medium and transfering images onto fabric.
I love how the images turned out and the addition of the burnt edges gave them a more romantic old world charm.
Inspired by Donna Salazar’s work with Corrugated cardboard and my love of recycling I turned a box flap into an album. (you paint one side of the flap with water let it seep in and peel back to reveal some or all of the corrugated card underneath), I painted it white and then used matt multi medium and glittered each piece before sticking the flat sides together.
Then it was just a matter of choosing quotes and assembling my wee album with some jump rings. I then pulled out my score board and made a lovely red box for the Album to sit in and viola a valentines day gift of a lovely romantic sort for someone very special (it could easily with the changing of a few quotes make a lovely mothers day gift or friendship gift.)
So here are the pics
and with a little cranberry colour wash and some leftovers here is a card I made as well
If you have already signed up for the newsletter you would have seen both of these things featured in it.
Yes another Cybercrop Challenge. This we 2″ square box was my starting point it was a halloween themed mini otp challenge
I created this box and made a flower using Donna Salazar’s Rose Creations Dies (yep one of my fav things to enter my stash this year)
Then after I had embossed the box and added the flower and watch parts I had an idea how awesome would a flower look with watch parts in its center so that is what I did. I have to say I love how this turned out though embossing the box was the hardest part.
Recently I participated in Two swaps (though was lucky enough to get the same partner for both which was a great blessing to my budget),
The theme for both was Shabby Chic, one was a card box filled with 5 cards in set themes. The other was a box swap (I tried everywhere to find a box the right size but just could not find one so I added in another small box and a small tag album to make up for the size as well as a few extra goodies for my swap partner)
So now that they have arrived I can share the pics with you all.
Here is the card box and cards:
and here is the two boxes and matching mini Tag Album
I of course had to gold leaf a little, and one of the cards is also on Jellybean Scrappers for a monthly Inspiration Challenge.
Happy Mothers Day to all the Wonderful Mothers out there. Being the wonderful and incredibly slack Daughter I am I had almost forgotten about Mothers Day. Now before you all go horrible horrible Daughter, my Mother always tells me she does not want me to buy her gifts and such.
I had picked out a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers (The tutorials on this sight are AMAZING and for the most part very user friendly)
