I made the box above for my niece who was gracious enough to host my first workshop a couple of weeks ago. It was my way of saying thanks.It is my version of a box that is on the front of the Stampin'Up! catalog. She admired it and said she'd like to make it. She wants to use it to keep her favorite Bible verses.
This one of my favorite cards that I made...as most of you know I've really been into pink since my go-round with breast cancer, and I gravitate toward shabby chic/vintage things.
I borrowed most of the stamps on this card from one of my Stampin'Up! friends. It is a retired stamp set which makes me very sad as I love it so much that I'd love to have it! Guess I'll just have to borrow it from her when I want to make more from the set. I used it a lot on my boxes.
This box top was made from a Dr. Pepper can and an embossing folder. I flattened out the cut out portion of the can. I painted it with pink and blue acrylic paint and antiqued it down with brown glaze. I also used some shimmer paint to bling it up a little, also. Then embossed it with gold and stamps. I used a Versamark pen to go over the embossed roses and then put on the embossing powder and heated it to set. Then I added some old clock embellishments and an old button.
This box is covered with old music , antiqued down with a brown glaze and gold embossing and some pearls. I used the Versamark pen on this one,also to do just the edges with gold embossing.
I'm doing another two small craft fairs on 12/3 and 12/7. So I've been making some additional things for them, plus I've been filling in a lot a work for one of the other nurses who's been having time off to diagnose her current health problems.
Sorry to have been gone so long I'll try to do better.
