So, I was out and about stalking some of my favorite blogs when I came across this awesome bracelet, HERE. I cannot tell you how excited I was to see what she had made. I'm always looking for creative ways to use my stuff. Check out Claudia's Blog, her bracelet and the link to the tutorial on how to make one for yourself!
I used Rangers Shrink Paper, Picket Fence Distress Stain, Black Stays On Ink and my Paris Memoir stamps. I used this set because I loved my time in Paris!
I picked up the jewelry bits at Michaels. I also used a "Word Band". I textured the word band with my TH uber cool textured hammer. A little heat with your heat gun and pliers to bend it.
The jumpers easily attach the stamps after they have shrunk. Just be sure you punch the small hole before you shrink. When it shrinks it is a perfect size for your jump rings.
I have been playing around with paints and I have had many failed attempts. I'm not sure if it's the paint or maybe my oven cooks to hot? I also painted picket fence on both sides and it worked. After it's dry I stamped the back with the background stamp from Paris Memoir. If you don't do that you'll see the image on the back, like the gentleman here.
The Vintage Balloon is not apart of the set but I LOVE it so I used it.
I also added some hardware including the Enamel Tag with the rubs.
These little label stamps are adorable. I used my 2 Paris ones.
With a small paint brush I painted the shrunken stamps with various distress stains.
You can paint the sides of each image if you like.
Use whatever hardware you have on hand. I added a plane and some gears.
You can use any stamps you have. Mix them up of create a theme! Fun for you or as a gift.
It is official... I am addicted to Journaling. This is an inspiration post... why? I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas. I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.
Well what a fun year it has been. Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one. Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker. This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters. A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.
To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock! I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.
I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.
Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily. I add them all one after another pull. So quick and easy!
I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters. Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.
With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.
Peel and stick. It's hard to pick one Xyron product. I often …
We are always looking for last minute card ideas. Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time. A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker. How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.
With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments. Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.
Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker. I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes. I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.
Check out this simple quick card.
Look how pretty my stamp looks here.
