Oops I forgot to mention the ink too! Sorry for the quality of the video. Hollywood studios called and said they needed their cameras back, so what's a girl to do? Thank you for watching and go see Kimberly and say hello!
I had a little trouble with my computer not wanting to get all my pics uploaded :( but here are a couple of the ones I was able to get of this lil' thank you card I made for a sweet friend. It's a punny card, but that's what I was going for. The die cut is the Oven from From My Kitchen. I also used the Cuttlebug and embossed the "HOT" as well as Glaze medium for dimension. The edges are all inked with Tim Holtz ink asn Chalk ink. The paper is My Minds eye, and scraps. I love comments!
I was blog-surfing yesterday and came across a beautiful site: http://egenblogg-rantho.blogspot.com. I was so inspired that I had a try at making this pretty little basket. Now my question is what to put in it. Perhaps it will be a place to store ephemera, since it has that look to it. I recycled cardboard as the base, painted it in white acrylic, and since I was going for the shabby-chic look, I dried it with my heat gun. This worked out perfectly and really cut down on time. All the paper is Heidi Grace, and the embellies are assorted. The butterfly is from K& Co. I also used stickles and inked the edges to give it a mossy look. I'd love to know what you think!
