Background Paper and Cardstock - Close To My Heart
I stamped this little sweetie out and colored her with Spectrum Noir pencils and Gamsol then fussy cut her out. That's what we did before there were dies to match our stamps! Inside, I stamped her again, kind of double stamping, and colored her very lightly.
The sentiment is from another set. I used my leftover curved scrap from the front to make the rainbow, just scribbling a little line and blending with Gamsol.
Two strands of hemp, and a Latte Button with four holes will work best. Bring the ends up through the bottom of the button. This creates a loop underneath.
Put the ends through that loop and your button is secured. Repeat on the opposite side.
To make the bracelet adjustable, you’ll wrap one set of ends around the other and create a loop, pulling that same set of ends back through to make a knot. I like to put little knots in each end to prevent accidentally pulling them all the way through when taking your bracelet off. Flip the bracelet over and repeat the same looped knot.
Now, when you tug on the ends, the bracelet tightens. To loosen, gently push on the knots.
To add beads, I took a third piece of hemp and ran it through the loops I created to secure the button, then through the beads. I took the ends of the pieces securing the button and went around the beads, holding them in place, then making knots.
Make your other knots the same way as above – they’ll just be a bit larger.
These are so simple, easy and affordable, and also great fun to make with kids.
A co-worker is leaving to begin studies to become a police officer. I wanted to make him a good bye gift. I created the box with Outdoor Denim cardstock, and accented with colors of our local county sheriff's office.
I was inspired by a card on Pinterest. I followed the links to Blue Jelly So n So. What a cute blog! See the post here. Isn't it an adorable card?
I wanted to make a set of cards to give as a gift, so I made five of these tonight. It's been a while since I fussy cut a bunch of flowers, but I think it was worth it! What do you think?
Here's my take.
I didn't use any colored cardstock. The Lagoon layer is inked with a sponge. The flowers were stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Once they were cool I sponged on the various colors of ink and cut them out.
I created the score lines with the Score Board and stamped the sentiment, then adhered the flowers.
