Bloggers Challenge - Alter It

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Easter Challenge last week.  The challenge this week is Alter It.

Needing a basket for Easter goodies, I dug into my alterable stash of products and found some plain silver pails that I bought from Target some time ago. I gave them a facelift using the Gelli Plate, DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint, Punchanella and a stencil from Just a Trace.

Do More of What Makes you Happy


I think we could all use a little more time in our day to do more of what makes us happy!  My mixed media piece uses stamps from Prima and Artistic Outpost.

The cowgirl image is stamped multiple times on Prima pattern paper and paper pieced.  The background panel is the coordinating paper from the same pad, to distress the panel, I applied some DecoArt American Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Poppy over White Gesso then sponged Rose ink over the Jacks stencil from Just a Trace.

The banner is from the Artistic Outpost Cowgirl Strength plate, paper pieced with scraps of the pattern paper pad.  The sentiment from Typography plate is stamped in Espresso ink on a scrap of pattern paper and adhered to background panel using DecoArt Decou-Page.

Bloggers Challenge - Easter

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Stencils Challenge last week.  The challenge this week is Easter.

I created my card using Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies and ODBD Custom Ornamental Crosses Die.  I added a verse from the He is Risen stamp set to the inside of my card.



When die cutting the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern (background), I placed the largest center die in the middle so that it would die cut the center panel out.  This die cut panel is popped up on dimensionals for added depth.  The ODBD Custom Ornament Crosses Die was cut from White and Black card stock, I traced the largest cross on Brushed Silver and hand cut that, then layered the cross die cuts as shown.  I added a Silver Gem to the center of the cross, and a few around the center opening.  I stamped a verse from the He is Risen stamp set on the inside of my card in Ranger Black Archival.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs He is Risen (stamped inside)
Card Stock - White, Black, Brushed Silver
Ink - Ranger Black Archival
Other - Big Shot, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Silver Gems, ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, ODBD Custom Ornamental Crosses Die
