Boy do I have a ton of projects going on right now! Hopefully I will be able to photograph them all soon so I can share them with you! Not too much time to post tonight, but wanted to pop on and let everyone know that I am hosting this weeks challenge over at the Paper Crafts Message Board this week. You can join us here.
My first challenge to all of us it to make a Christmas card or tag for a gift that has a vintage feel to it. For some reason, these tags feel very vintage to me, and it is what inspired this challenge.
The second part of my challenge is to do a technique that you have always thought about trying but just never got around to it. For me, that’s going to be making a “shaker” element for my card.
Here is a photo of my shaker flowers for the first challenge.
To make them I punched a circle from the top scallop circle, then taped a transparency square to the back. I then made a circle out of OTC pop up squares to hold the beads in. I placed the beads inside, and then put another colored scallop circle on the back!
Materials Used: SU scallop punch, SU 1" circle punch, transparency, pink beads, MM rub-on (heidi font), OTC popup squares, misc - stems and kraft cardstock
I hope you will come join us if you have time! I'll be back a little later to show you my vintage tags!
