Lots of different uses I got out of these stamps.  I made a wreath, used it as a background  and also made border strips.  For a example of borders I created look at the first card I made on this post.

Alice Autumn Wreath 1

This is the card I created with the stamps.  I made a wreath and stamped partial spider wreaths for the background.

Alice Autumn Wreath 4

For this card I stamped the entire background to create my own paper.

Thanks for dropping by and I’ll be back with more from Anna Griffin!

Turn a folder into a working piece of art.

It’s that time again, “Back to School”.  I used to love back to school shopping. New school supplies were my guilty pleasure.  Maybe that’s where I found my love of crafting, who knows?

While shopping around for school supplies, I noticed all the supplies looked plain.  As a crafter I decided to dress them up!

IMG_7307

I purchased a plain pocket folder and filled it with note paper and used Core’dinations Neutrals 12×12 paper pad and Petaloo Floradoodles to decorate.

IMG_7296

I used Embossed flowers, Floradoodles to design the covers and used Jute string for the stems and adhered it with liquid glue.

IMG_7298

I like to add Petaloo Brads to the center of the flowers or layer the flowers and use the Brad to secure the flowers to a project.

I love these pockets that I created with Core’dinations paper to hold supplies.  Perfect paper quality from Core’dinations!

Different uses for Brads and Bling

My favorite time of year is about to start and I couldn’t be any more excited. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I wanted to share a fun idea with you.  Here’s a simple project to create with the kids by decorating an already made wood coffin I found at a local craft store.

Coffin

First use the wooden box as a template to cut out inserts for the coffin.  You will need one for the inside bottom of the coffin and another for the inside top of the coffin.  I used red card stock and stamped it with spider webs.  Then I used the NEW Mini Spider brads to finish the webbing I stamped.  Next, I used felt to line the inside bottom of the coffin and inked the edges black to give it a more custom look.

Coffin details

Coffin details 1

I also used 21 mm Red Jewel Brads to line the outside of the coffinNext, Line the top rim with Black Pearl strips. The pearls are on a strip which makes it easier to adhere on to your project.  After all is added your done!

Coffin details 2

For my next project I designed this card using flowers and jewel bling.

IMG_7417

I used Paper Flowers which I folded in half and added the star burst bling from the bulk bling pack.  For the center I used a black pearl to finish the detail of the flower.

IMG_7416

Hope you enjoyed the two different projects today and I’ll be back with more fun and innovative ways to design with brads and bling.

Have a great day!
