Mary here with a few quilt-inspired cards that are rocking some cute chip embellies.
I've always been a fan of the home-spun look of quilts, but haven't been able to make the jump to actual quilting. So what's a girl to do when you're itching to make something stitched and fabulous? Quilted cards, of course!
The Button Shape Set from Gina's Designs provides the perfect finishing touch for my mini quilts.
I've simply given them two coats of white embossing powder...
...and tied a bit of twine through.
Thanks so much for joining me today and I'll see ya next time!
I'm such a fan of creating environmentally friendly projects---up-cycling and more. Anytime I can make something awesome from an object that was destined for the trash pile, I'm a happy girl! So, in honor of Earth Day, I've created a fun tote bag all dolled up with May Arts ribbon. If you wanna hear a bit more about how it was put together, hop on over to the Ribbon Resource blog and check it out!!
Not familiar with Ribbon Resource?? It's the May Arts retail site! Why not get your ribbon straight from the horses mouth? Or site?? Eh, you get me!!
Hello! Mary here with a quick way to jazz up your chip. These tags are perfect for tying onto packages, labeling storage bins or creating jewelry!
How cute would they be to label your veggies in a Spring garden??
The first couple tags I created are covered in a paper clay, stamped into and covered with a coat of white paint. This is one of my favorite ways to use my chip pieces. Stamp a name or a background stamp for a textured embellishment!
The second set is rockin' a chalkboard look! A quick coat of black paint and a handwritten name with a white gel pen and they were set.
With some of the tags, I just tied my trim around a handle but with others I chose to punch a hole.
Ok guys, that's it for me. I can't wait to tie these cuties on gift packages and give them to a few scrappy sisters at our National Scrapbooking Day festivities!
Thanks so much for joining me and I'll see you next time!!
Today, I have a fun and simple set of canvases rockin' a serious pop of color :-)
I began by gluing down one of the pieces from the Birds On A Wire 2 set and the largest feather in the Feathers Shape Set with a small amount of tacky glue. A quick coat of white acrylic paint and a little Mod Podge to seal it in and it's ready for color!
I've outlined the pieces with a water-soluble graphite pencil to make them stand out more.
I finished my canvases off with a few white circles drawn on with a white PITT pen...
...and a sprinkling of glass microbeads for a little sparkle!
If you'd like to see how this project came together, check out my video (COMING SOON!). Gina's Designs supplies used:
Today, I have a simple project with a big meaning...
This picture frame features puzzle pieces and a wash of blue---both of which are used to help raise awareness for Autism.
When asked if I wanted to create a project for World Autism Awareness Day, I took it as an opportunity to learn a bit about something I knew very little about---and support our very own Ribbon Lady!!
To create the lovely texture for this picture frame, I've glued several lengths of the 4 inch Burlap/Wired Ribbon in Light Naturaldown with Mod Podge. I then covered it with a layer of white paint before adding a wash of Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.
