My project today is my DT make for the
Challenge Blog

'Add Cardboard'
This month's fabulous prize sponsor is Emerald Creek and it's a whopper: $50 shopping spree!

I made this little bird house by first of all drawing a template...
Cut and assembled the box....


...sanded the edges and scraped a few areas and added some texture pastes.
The lid / roof had a shelf structure below to put bits and pieces in, also hold the roof to the box.
I just painted inside with white acrylic.

PRODUCTS USED

Cardboard
Texture pastes
Die cut leave swirl
I cast the bird and the leaves using DAS clay and used Oxide inks to paint.

I hope you like my project.

Herbarium hanging frame

Good afternoon everyone
I hope you are enjoying your day.
My post today is a DT project for 
'Craft Consortium'
using the GORGEOUS
Hackney&Co


For this project I used the MDF box frame from
Daisy's Jewels and Crafts...
I assembled, covered the base and the frame with one of the beautiful papers, sanded slightly in areas just to give it the distressed look.
For the panels I added some of the reverse of the paper I used for the frame, sanded in areas and also added distress inks to age it.
I tore the herb toppers from the paper pad, inked the edges to distress further then added them to the panels...
I used faux gems to makes it look they are pinned.
I added some hooks to the bottom of the frame and a wall mount bar on the back....useful for hanging your herbarium tools on maybe!
I added some black cord with some of the gorgeous Craft Consortium metal embellishments that a part of the 'Herbarium Collection'.

I used Ranger Oxide Sprays - 'Forest Moss' and 
'Brushed Corduroy' to colour the interior of the box as well as to distress the paper on the panels.

LaBlanche

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are enjoying your day.

My projects that I'm sharing with you today are a couple of cards that I created using the beautiful
toppers and laser cutouts by
I got this beautiful collection from 'HochandaTV'

I used one of the cards that came with the collection and mat and layered onto gold mirror card...


....I also used some of the mirror card and die cut a circle with a circle cut inside the size of the clock face, I cut the clock face out of the topper and attached it to the underneath of the circle of mirror card then used silicon glue to raise and give dimension.
I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments for both cards.


This one was created in more or less the same way as the one above, I added some of the laser cutouts on both just to embellish and give more dimension.
The die cut gold mirror card elements behind the toppers are both cut using Die'sire dies.

I hope you like them, I loved creating them, I think these cutouts are beautiful and are just perfect for a quick card that looks like you have spent ages creating.

Good evening everyone
I hope you have had a lovely day.

A quick post from me this evening to share a little project that I made today...


I cast from one of my own moulds that I made with resin for this project, I was quite pleased with how it casted.
I painted the frame and the cast with Stamperia Home Deco Paints.
I also added some Alchemy Waxes on the cast, gold and just a touch of Cobalt.
I used some of the gorgeous paper from the Craft Consortium Essential Crafts Paper Collection - 'Grunge - light tones' for behind the cast and the sides of the frame...
...I added cork sheet to the back and added a hanging bar.

I hope you like my project and much as I enjoyed creating it.

Owl on Canvas

Good evening everyone,
I hope you have had an awesome day.


The project I'm sharing with you this evening is something I have been working on for a bit....on and off...finally got it finished.
I've have this plaster Owl for a while, I got it from Powertex UK,
I thought it was about time I gave him a proper place instead of just sitting on the shelf...


I created this using a small canvas, approx 7"X 7"
and painted with Pentart Cracking Primer, dried then, using a pallette knife, applied the Pentart Cracking Paste...
both products are available from DaliArt.


I cast the leaves and the wood using Katy Sue moulds and DAS clay.
To add colour I used...
Ranger Oxide Sprays - 'Walnut Stain', 'Vintage Photo' and 'Peeled Paint'
Ranger Oxide Ink pads - "Gathered Twigs'
Ranger Distress ink - 'Brushed Corduroy'
Adirondack Ink - 'Espresso'
Enamel Accents - ' Black'
Liquid Pearls - 'White Opal'
Glossy Accents

I hope you like my project, I am quite pleased with him.

Herb Storage

Good afternoon everyone
I hope you are enjoying your day.
My post today is a DT project for 
'Craft Consortium'
using the GORGEOUS

Herb Jar Storage...
I bought this MDF box from The Works, it did have a thin lattice
design on the front but had broke, unfortunately it was glued to
the glass so all had to be removed. I dismantled the box, placed the box door in a bag a smashed
the glass and then carefully removed any remnants.
I replaced the glass with thick acetate after the box was decorated.


I used Ranger Oxide Sprays - 'Forest Moss' and 
'Brushed Corduroy' to colour the interior of the box.
I used the beautiful Herbarium papers to cover the box, except for the bottom...


...I used the Herbarium clear stamp set - 'Herbs' , Versamark and Tim Holtz 
Distress Powder - 'Shabby Shutters' to heat emboss around the edges of the box lid then used the Oxide inks to add colour and painted over with Imagination Crafts Crackle glaze.
Once all dry I attached the acetate to the reverse of the door, reassembled the box and added some metal embellishment corners.
I covered the base with cork sheet...


I took 6 seal jars and added the labels...
the labels are in 'The Herbarium' Paper pad...
I cut them out, backed onto some of the papers and coated with the Crackle Glaze.
