Today's SCS challenge was to alter a tin--and after seeing all the wonderful creations, I am embarrassed to even submit my paltry little thing! My friend gave me a bunch of these clear-top tins and they were just sitting around, gathering dust.....you don't have anything in your craft room like that, right? So here we go:
I covered the side with some Manchester DP, and on the top added some Nestie-cut circles of Kraft and Always Artichoke, then stamped my little Trendy Tree on another circle of Manchester. I stamped the spiraly-leaf thing a few times with Artichoke on Confetti White and punched it out, then popped it up on the lid. I poked two holes on either side of the tree and added a hemp twine knot; the tag is also tied around the outside of the tin with twine as well. I added a silver eyelet for the twine to feed through.
I'll put some goodies in here for my Dad for Father's Day....maybe some M&Ms!
I was making some samples for my meeting, and after rooting through the scraps, die cuts, etc., that were littering my desk, I came up with this fun card:
Four layers of the Daisies #2 die cut in More Mustard form the flower; a big knot of Mellow Moss grosgrain forms the center. The lady bug and sentiment are stamped in Riding Hood Red--gotta use it up before it retires! Background paper is from the Hostess Patterns Pack.
And finally, I was experimenting again with stamping on SU's clear window sheets, and found a way to have the colors show up a little better. You can look here for my first attempt. This time, instead of letting the Stazon White ink dry, I applied the pastels immediately after stamping; they adhere to the ink and really stand out:
It's such a dreary day here, I hope you can see the effect in the first shot. I mounted the sheet on a piece of Tea Party, and stamped my sentiment on another coordinating piece, then punched it with the small oval punch. Funky Forest forms my monochromatic border on the Sage Shadow card. I love this!
