For my First Project, I will be starting with Fall. I made a video so that I may show you all of the details of this fun project.
I used the Creative Kuts File Falling For You. You can find it in the CK store by clicking Here. For the patterned papers I used the Fall Paper Kit from Oriental Trading CO, only the Papers were used from this kit. The Solid papers are all Bazzill. The Ribbon to make my bow and inside accents was from Recollections. The boys face is stamped with a peachy Keen face stamp from the everyday character face assoertment. The big leaves on the top of the box are embossed with D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and all of the small leaves are embossed with Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder. I used only the leaf accent spots on the folder so I could only emboss five or six at a time...lol. This ended up taking awhile!!! The Fonts I used were from Kates ABC's and the box itself is from svgcuts.
My Second Project today is one of my favorite things to make. This Bottle light is Beautiful either lit up or not.
|Pointsettia Bottle, Daylight - No Lights|
|Pointsettia Bottle, Daylight - Lights On|
|Pointsettia Bottle, Lit Up In the Dark|
I first used Armor etch over the stencil to etch the bottle. Now normally you would wash the etching cream off to remove when your etching time is up, but I wanted to try something new and so I carefully wiped off the cream with a wet paper towel until it was all off, so that I didn't raise the edges of the stencil. I then took my Tim Holtz alcohol inks and a small paint brush and began coloring the etching in. I used Red Pepper for the Petals, Oregano for the leaves and Mushroom for the center. I did several coats of each. After it was completly dry I removed the Pointsettia Etching stencil and then I added gold stickles to the center. The bottom part is simply a Holiday candle ring I bought at Michaels. The Bow is made with my Bowdabra mini. It is a wire edged ribbon by believe also bought from Michaels. I added in some Holiday red and white cording by Celebrate it and added some cute little jingle bells to the ends. Normally I make my bottle lights with a plug in style Christmas light strand but this time I used a strand of battery powered lights, which give off a softer glow. After adding the lights, I dropped in clear glass pebbles and it pushed the lights down and adds the perfect accent lighting and glow to the bottle when lit.
I also have some Blog candy for you today.
