Oh you are patient waiting for me to get the project I mentioned at the start of the month up online! We have had a lot of problems with the cold weather making our wireless internet antannae malfunction on more than one occasion - we know now that it doesn't like fog, snow, ice, freezing fog or negative temperatures! Just the kind of weather we have had since Christmas! So when the line is working we are like little beavers downloading orders ASAP!
So last time when I blogged, I put up this image of what you need to make this project....and the good news is that if you buy the current issue of Craft Stamper on sale now (February, CS105) , we are offerning a great deal for the following bundle of items:
- 5 stamps (Nature 1-4, At Home 6),
- twill tape,
- a picture pack image,
- mini jewellery tags, and
- a pack of Vintage papers, that's 5 different A5 size double sided papers which feature many PaperARtsy stamps on the designs of the papers.
In addition to the PA bundle you will need the following:
Square manila tags (5.5 “square) are the substrate, but you also could cut regular heavy card to this size. Sandpaper, inks, cut 'n' dry foam, gesso,Tim Holtz fragments, scissors and scratchy tool, acrylic blocks and stamps, glue stick and glossy accents, plus a craft sheet.
Use a glue-stick and stick a different Vintage Papers to each tag. Sand edges with sandpaper, add extra gouged lines with a Tim Holtz scratchy tool. Apply ink, one or two colours, to the edges with an applicator tool.
Apply a thin wash of gesso on each panel for the quote. Dry. Stamp a quote in black ink from each of the 4 Nature Stamp plates onto each panel.
Apply glossy accents glue to fragments and press in position. Leave to dry. Cut out each image. Sand the card edges from behind to soften the sharp bits.
Step Seven: Don't forget to put some eyelets at the top too so you can wire to the dead twig supplied by your garden or local park. I find it works well to wrap the wire 3 times through both holes, then the loose ends wrap in the centre and cinch together.
If you liked this project, then you'll also like the mini book (pictured at the top of this post). The full colour 2 page instructions with step outs for both projects will be sent with you order for this bundle offer from PaperArtsy.
Have a great weekend and don't forget that our January sale is on now!
