To create the mini purse, I used another Spellbinders die set with Lavender Starstruck Foiled Paper and Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper. The flowers were stamped on Arctic/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and die cut.
I created a tassel from Violet/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. So much fun with the foiled paper!!!
Faux tissue paper was created from Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper and placed inside the mini purse. Another leaf spray was added to the front and flowers placed on top. Finally, congratulations was stamped, die cut and added to the front.
This purse is the perfect size for a gift card or check. What a great way to celebrate a special wedding day!
I used the Gears Stencil with assorted inks to create backgrounds for my cards.
My first gears background uses Old Paper Distress Ink for a light effect.
My second background uses Aged Mahogany Distress Ink for a rich effect.
My third card uses Forest Moss Distress Ink for a darker effect.
Mix up the colors to create any number of backgrounds. Using Lawn Fawn dies, I then die cut the panels to fit my cards. Using the Tape Runner, I adhered the stenciled panels to coordinating cardstock panels, then added them to cards.
For card #1, I used Heartfelt Creations stamps to create a masculine card, fussy cutting the stamped image and adhering it to the background with brads. Going for a birthday theme, I added Happy Birthday to the center of the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
Card #2 uses the same gears stamp and a different sentiment. It was also added to the card with brads. The sentiment gives you a reason to look inside the card doesn't it?
In this current environment, I thought this interior sentiment says it all, don't you?
My final card is a little different as I wanted a friendship card. I just added a few brads to the gears background, then added the sentiment across a piece of corrugated cardstock.
Happy Father's Day was stamped on cardstock, die cut and added to the card. Finally, several wood gear embellishments were then added to the card.
My second card was created the same way, except the background used a different Lawn Fawn die with Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. The gears panel was added on top, then the panel was adhered to a black card.
This time, I used a birthday sentiment and also scattered wood gears about the card.
I've been having fun creating backgrounds using watercolor paper and spray inks. You never know what will happen when you play with your products. Once of my background was created with 3 different colors of blue spray inks. I stamped the Fairy Bridge in VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink directly on the background.
Using an oval die, I die cut the Fairy Bridge. Placing it aside, I then stamped the Fairy Words using Nocturne Ink on the die cut panel.
A card was created from black cardstock and the wordy panel was added to the card. The Fairy Bridge oval was inked with VersaFine Clair Warm Breeze Ink then matted with white cardstock. The oval was then added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
Feeling my card needed a little something more, I added a metal word sticker.
My next card uses another background I created with spray inks. I used several shades of pink and green sprays.
I stamped Bria Rose on the background using Nocturne Ink so she appears to be walking on grass. Then I stamped the Fairy Words to the right of the fairy.
I cut the panel to size, then corner rounded the edges before mounting it on a darker pink panel.
I stamped the Flower Miniatures using VersaFine Clair Inks in Fantasia, Paradise, and Tulip Red along the bottom of the card, then added Nuvo Drops to the flower centers as well as her wings. The panel was then added to a black card.

I also painted the Beach Chair chipboard embellishment with brown paint and the umbrella with beige paint. I used glue to create veins on the umbrella and sprinkled on gold glitter. The chipboard pieces were adhered to the pallet.
To finish, I created shells from Makin's Clay, painted them with gold ink and adhered them to the panel.
Use a pallet knife to add etching creme to the stencil. Let sit for 15 minutes, then remove the etching crème and place it back in it's original container. Remember that etchall is reusable and can be used on many upcoming projects. Remove the stencil and clean it immediately. Now watch the magic happen! The etching creme removed some of the porcelain yet kept the panel smooth.
Spritz assorted spray inks on the porcelain panel, turning the panel so the colors run.
Once it was colored to my satisfaction, I tied rope to the panel.
Then I decorated the panel with a summer theme. I placed mesh along the edge. Using Rinea Silver/Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper, I die cut an anchor, placing it atop the mesh. A stamped and colored Prima doll stamp was placed next. Assorted shells created with Makin's Clay push mold and clay were added about the panel.
