Anniversary 9: Pottery

This Anniversary is Pottery using Paperclay which I never heard of but was an easy and different medium. I used the 2 hearts from Choose Joy and the Limitless Layers Heart. The sentiment is Handwritten Sentiments from Simon Says. 

Anniversary 8: Bronze

Anniversary 8 : Bronze2. I used Tropic and Leave it be Leaves which I stamped in ripe avacado on ripe avacado and smeared perfect pearls in gold. I then I had a bright idea of clear embossing them- as you can see they are too dark but were used anyway. I used the Thanks from a big Basics Cutouts. 

Anniversary 8: Bronze

Anniversary 8: Bronze. Well I must not have many Bronze things in my stash so I used Bronze paper for my strips and sentiment. The Hello is from Ways to say Hello. 

Anniversary 7: Wool

 For the 7 th Anniversary I chose the Friendship Jar of cookies. I stamped a few cookies on the pink felt and added them at the bottom

Anniversary 7: Wool

For the 7 th Anniversary- Wool we used felt. I did not dig out my machine so I tried to hand sew but that failed also so I went back to glue! I used the same dies and stamps as Heather.  Cute idea though.

Anniversary: 6 Iron

So I had no luck mixing water with the embossing paste so I did  my best to make the frame look old. 
I used the Charmed Frame and the Sunflower Harvest. 

Anniversary 5 : Wood 2

This is Anniversary 5:Wood and I love Leaf Prints so this was an east one. I like smearing the ink on the cover plate as it made it very rich looking. Fun project. 

Anniversary 5:Wood
The 5th Anniversary is wood so I chose Phrase Play #6 cut from chocolate cardstock and wood. I inlaid the wood words. The background is the new Sunflower Harvest. I used the XOXO from MFT. 

Anniversary 4: Linen2
The Anniversary 4 -2 is also printing on Linen and make a card or tag. I chose the Noted scalloped square for a small card and the Simply Stitched sentiment and die. The roses are from The Sweet Life. I was surprised ar how realistic the roses turned out on the linen. 

Anniversary 4: Linen

Linen is the 4th Anniversary so I chose the new Sunflower Harvest to decorate my linen fabric square corner. This was a fun and easy project so I may have time for Lunch!! Cute idea Amy. 

Anniversary : Leather2

For The Anniversary 3 my second card was adding multiple layers of tissue paper over a cover plate or die.  I used Ivy and Bloom and the sentiment from Ways to Say Birthday. I think I might try less tissue next time for more definition. I like the look though for a masculine card.  

Anniversary 3: Leather

For Anniversary 3 the theme is Leather and this was a real joy to do. I think it's my favorite technique so far as it really looks like Leather and I'm always looking for good male looking cards. I used the sentiment from Stylish Sentiments and the Mix and Mat Postal and  Mix and Mat Pinked dies.

The 2nd Anniversary: Cotton 

Using cotton was a real challenge as I'm not sure it would mail very well but I chose clouds for my cotton balls setting a scene with The Life Is Beautiful die and the tree from Mighty Oak.

1st Anniversary : Paper

The idea was to use up your scraps which was easy Peary!  I used the mighty oak cover plate and Fall colors to make this Thank You card

Challenge one: Paper

The idea was to make embellishments for a card or gift. I made a bow from strips of paper and cut confetti in the little bag. Since it was festive I chose balloons but my dieting didn't t turn out so I shaded them  with an ink blending tool. I also could not find the tassel caps so used regular tassels. There were some interesting ideas in this challenge.

Warm Up Challenge for Stamp-a-Faire 2017

The challenge was to pick a card and duplicate it using your own stamps.
 I used a Bowl of Sunshine, Tea for Two and for the handles I use the screw driver from Handy Hardware and glued them on the back of the pots. What a fun start
