Hammered Metal Bunny

Well, it's almost Easter and I wanted to make something.  I was inspired by this new embossing powder Emerald Creek Crafts Supplies just released... Hammered Metal.  So of course that means Easter!  
Or in this case Hammered Metal Bunny Bags.

I started with a bunch of my dies, movers and shapers, thinlits and magnetic plate.


I cut the bunnies out with mat board then inked with seedless preserves distress spray.  Then I added my Hammered Metal powder.  I added 2 coats of powder.


I really wanted to play with the new Hammered Metal embossing powder.  Look how yummy this is... so thick!!!



I cut the In the Bag bags using Kraft Paper then stamped with the Graph background stamp.  Check out these metal bunnies!


Once the bags are built I inked the edges with ground espresso distress ink.  The handwritten celebrate words are cut with Sizzix Watercolor pattern paper and inked with wilted violet.


I wanted to try my distress crayon seedless preserve on ribbon and see the effect.  I added a strip of colour down the center.  To get it to feather out I used a baby wipe and rubbed.


Check out how cute these are and simple.


By stamping the bag it helps break us the colour and adds a layer.


When you add 2 it gets super thick!  You can see the little pops of seedless preserves coming through.  This little guy looks almost like liquid.


Stuff with Easter treats and tie it off.


Check out Hammered Metal HERE at Emerald Creek.

I hope this quick project gives you some ideas for whipping something fun up.

Lets play...

Frilly and Funkie- Hip to be Square (bright colours)
A Vintage Journey- (Mat Board, purple, metal effect)
Anything But Cute- Crazy for Colour- (purples)
Creative Carte Blanche- Triple Trouble (metal bunny, graph stamp, sentiment)

  5. Aw, these are so cute!! I think you might have gotten a little confused for Creative Carte Blanche - our challenge was corrugated, metal and lace. But these little bunnies are fun anyway. :-)

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
