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.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
