happy wednesday :) hows your week going so far? good i hope.this week over at WW we have a fun challenge for ya dealing with the word love. create a home decor project for valentines day or just for love in general. be sure to check out the super fabulous love shtuff ( sorry read my beloved morning mutts comics before i posted this ) the rest of the dt has revealed for us all :)
i created two projects so this is gonna be a lil pic heavy :)
im also entering these into the following challenges:
the pink elephant :photo inspired
anything goes: the one i love
cupcakecrafts: all you need is love
the first project is a vase i frou~froud up a tad
for the flowers i cut some circles out of shipping paper and tissue paper then spritzed them with homemade spun sugar distress ink glitzy spray
on the brown flower i added spun sugar distress stickles. i also added some crinkle ribbon around the top of the vase. i love crinkle ribbon.
these hearts are precut glitzed up chipboard.i took some wire and added random beads then wrapped it around the bottom part of the vase.the heart is another precut piece of chipboard from my stash. i made the hat pins using 2 heart shaped chunky beads.
the stamped sentiment is from stephs set "with love" which can be seen and purchased along with others just by clicking ~>here <~ these are really fun sets and stamp perfectly so be sure to go grab ya some up :)
so...now project #2
i made a pocket decoration out of aida cloth. you can use burlap (which i dont have but love the look much better)or any cloth you like. if using regular cloth add a piece of cardstock in there against the back for stability. im using mine for decor but this makes a really cute lil bag for a gift too.
i cut my cloth into a 6X6 square then brought two corners together then the bottom, like a diaper basically. then i hot glued where the three met.
i tucked in a paper doily that i inked with distress ink. i added some crinkle ribbon and tulle plus 2 heart pins a button and some prima flowers
i added a frame for a photo which i attached a key embelli to. and then some pretty crocheted butterflies that one of my old DT leaders leah made.
pretty lil things arent they :) i also added some pearls to the bottom.the sweet sentiment is from stephs set" with love" also. i cut the heart using my cricut and create a critter cartridgeusing ivory cardstock inked and dotted it up some.
finally done arent ya relieved :) you probably got through with your entire cup~a~whateva with this one eh :) thanks so much for sittin here so long i do appreciate your patience :) if ya havent checked out the rest of the dt reveal be sure to refill your cup cuz youre gonna spend a lot of time oohing and aaahing :)
