I have for you a sweet card that would be perfect for a bridal sower, wedding, or anniversary.
For this project, I started my background piece on watercolor paper using Brilliant Red Colourcraft Crystals. After that dried, I added some Gesso using the Mandala Stencil across the center. I also used some Versamark ink and the same stencil to add some superfine silver glitter from the ‘Silver Fiesta’ bling pack.
I used a sticker from the ‘Marriage Bells’ sticker pack for the cake image and the little flower and heart images. I added one of the super cute butterflies that I painted with cream coloured chalk paint and more of the fine glitter.
The large flower needed some silver glitter as well so I added that to change the colour of the center from the original shade.
For the Love Story greeting, I used a piece of the primed chipboard “Wedding Bells” and coloured it using walnut cream chalk paint. Before adhering it to my card, I added some of the silver metallic wax for contrast.
Lastly, I added some embellishments using some of the bright silver mirror pieces from the ‘Bling Fiesta’ pack and also some Pearl Drops in both – Dew Drop and Candy Glaze.
All of this was mounted to a light grey card base.
I hope you enjoyed my love story card and perhaps try some of these ideas on a project of your own. Thank you for reading! Enjoy!
Hi everyone, Tamara here with another great use for the ‘Boho Dreams’
paper pack, Little Birdie chalk paints and handmade flowers!
I realized recently that I had somehow gathered quite a collection of bakers twine and that I needed a better place to store it all. I found this little wooden box at the thrift store and knew that with a little work, it could be the perfect solution!
The first thing I did was paint the whole thing, inside and out with the pretty pink chalk paint from the Muted collection (newly restocked!). Then I created a new window by painting some sparkle decoupage glue right onto a laminating folder and then just ran it through my laminator.
I liked the sparkle effect so much that once I covered the box with the pretty papers from the Boho Dreams collection that I coated it all with a layer (or two) of that same decoupage glue.
Then I used the Color Splash inks to dye my paper doilies to match the beautiful handmade flowers. I added a few coloured rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.
And look at that…. it seems that I have room for a few more spools!!
I hope this fun little project helps you to see your craft storage in a new way and maybe you can give an old box a new life.
