a few projects

over the weekend, i decided to make a couple of things just for me. no challenges or set themes. i just sat down as i used to & just started to create....

supplies: i used the tim holtz sewing stamp set & die set. i added some of his tape, punched out some butterflies out of mme paper with my ms punch, & used scraps of materials left over from some sewing projects. i also added some stickles & liquid pearls & a few heart buttons. i then used my cricut for the sew. oh, the tape measure is yellow ribbon that i made into a tape measure. on the dress form i used a sizzix embossing folder & chalk inks. finally i used some embroidery floss in the buttons & on the spool. i also used some distress stains & gesso.

i actually stamped something into the gesso in the upper right corner, but the camera didn't pick it up.

for this card i used mme paper in the back. then on sticky back canvas i used distress stains & paint dabbers. then i stamped a hero arts stamp & colored the butterfly & dragon fly with copics & stickles. then on acetate i stamped the butterfly & dragon fly & colored them with my copics & added more stickles. then layered the acetate critters on top of those on the canvas. finally added some button brads from making memories.

it was definitely nice to just sit & create for just me. i am going to have to do this more often. thanks for stopping by. & please leave a comment & let me know what you think. hugs.
