Just wanted to share the project that we did in the Spellbinders class that I teach monthly at All About Pictures in Cedar Rapids, IA. All three panels were strung together to make a wall hanging. The base of each page was Grand Scalloped Squares, new large format dies from Spellbinders. (Please scroll through all the photos, as the close-ups show the project in a better light.)
A look at one of the pages. The photo is 4x6, to give you an idea of the size of the project.
Flowers and leaves created from Spellbinders Blossom Three, Foliage, and circles. The center of the flowers was made by die cutting cork and stamping upon it. Cork takes ink beautifully. The stamp is from Hero Arts set, Type. Its a typewriter key. Isn’t that cute?
The banner from the middle panel. This was made using Spellbinders Nested and Lacey Pennants. Plus more cork stamped with a typewriter key.
A closer look at the stamped cork. Give it a few minutes to dry. I used Memento ink.
Each page also had words stamped onto it. The sentiments are from Hero Arts set, Thank You for Being my Friend. This sentiment was masked to get the saying. This was an easy spot to mask a sentiment, because the photo let me line up the words.
How perfect! :)
And again, couldn’t have found a more perfect set of words!
And one final look at the butterflies on this project. They were made by splitting a die cut square in half, on the diagonal. Glue two of the corners together and add a button. Kind of fun and different. :)
Busy, busy, busy here! Spring fever has hit full-force in our house, as they opened the golf course yesterday!! Can you guess what we are doing tonight? :) Will I be able to wash my hair tomorrow? My back and shoulders could be very sore after a bucket or two of balls. Oh well, it will be worth it! :) Have a super day! thanks for stopping by!
