Remnant Bracelet


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.

  2. Oh wow... super cute! You should have posted one with it on your wrist. :) Looks like a lot of work went into that. I just bought a pack of the shrink plastic, never used it before and I thought it might be cool to try it somewhere, somehow.

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
