Club Scrap Celebrate Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog today!!

Today I am working with Club Scrap's Celebrate kit and I made a set of Faux Washer Necklaces.  They are made of Glossy cardstock and mat board with alcohol inks.

Faux Washer Necklace

Supplies:
Glossy Paper
Alcohol inks
Embossing Ink
Embossing Powder
Dies

Instructions:
Apply alcohol inks onto glossy paper. I made some in shades of red, brown, and green.

 Rubberstamp images with versamark ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
 Die cut out the images with a circle diecut.

 Diecut circles of the same size as the diecut images from mat board.
 Adhere the circle images to the mat board circles.
Use cropadile and punch out circles, some I punched in center, others I offset them, so they'd lay nicer, as shown:

Use glossy accents and cover the front of the each of the circles, and let dry.

January Artist Team Challenge Blog hop

Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop

Hi and Welcome to my blog this beautiful winter day!!  We have lots of gorgeous snow here in Montana and I am loving it!!

So this months challenge given to the Club Scrap Artist Team is to find interesting or unique ways to incorporate circles or other round elements into your project.

Supplies:
Mat board
Patterned cardstock
Diecuts
Modge Podge

Instructions:
Cut 6-4" circles from some mat board.  I just grabbed some cardboard from the recycle bin and used it, since I needed fairly thin mat board to work with my diecuts.
Cut 3 slider panels - these will fit inside the circle when closed, so just cut to fit.  I also cut some circular pieces to act as a spacer on the top and bottom on the circle, allowing space for the slider to easily slide in and out of the enclosure.
 Cut 6 circles from patterned cardstock.  I used ClubScrap Moroccan Spice kit.  Adhere these to the matboard circles using modge podge.
Cut cardstock to cover the sliders:

Flip over and mark the back side of each circle using these dimensions:
Since I do not like to measure much, I just created a template to these measurements and then traced around it on the rest of the circles:
 Next I cut the slider "handle" that is an oval-ish shape from all 6 pieces:
Ink all the edges:
Glue 'spacers to top and bottom on the backside of the circles.  Glue the two circles together.  Let dry.
Insert the slider and determine where its placement is just right to fit within the circle and adhere the 'handle' onto the slides:


Once all three circles are done, then punch 3 holes using cropodile as shown:
 Insert rings into the 3 holes.
Here is a photo of the 3 circles with the sliders partially coming out of their pockets:
Add ribbon to the the split rings and the handles:
Embellish the front of the book and inside it:
Here is the some photo mats on the inside of the booklet:

Here is the final:

Etched Wine Glasses

So I made a set of these for my hubby a number of years ago - but almost all of them have been broken since then and he is down to just 1 left and has been asking me to make him more...Well his birthday is coming up, so we decided to make some more for him.  So don't tell him...

Supplies:
Wine glasses
Armour etch cream (hobby store)
Paint brush
Vinyl 'sticky' stencil

Instructions:
You can purchase sticky stencils, but I chose to create my own.  I used my cricut to cut my designs out of vinyl sticky sticker paper...or - but I personally don't like this as much - you can use sticky drawer liner paper.  The reason I don't like it as well is, this stuff doesn't stick as well, especially for real detailed designs, the etching cream can work its way under the stencil if it doesn't stick as well.  If the cream gets under it, it will mess up the design.  I did try it on 2 of these glasses and it did work out alright - but they took more work to get just right.

Put the sticky stencil onto the glass.  There needs to be NO bubbles that cream can go under (it will ruin design).  This will take patience and an exacto knife.  If there are bubbles you need to cut through the center of the bubble to the edge of the stencil.  Peel up the stencil and overlay the two pieces so there is no bubble.  I did this in probably 6 or so different spots around the stencil on each glass.

Add blue painters tape to cover more of the glass, so if the etching cream drips or flows anywhere, it won't have a chance to etch glass in the wrong spots.

Use a small paint brush to apply etching cream - do a thick layer.  The Armour Etch cream folks say you only have to wait 30 seconds for the cream to work.  Mine sits for probably 5 to 10 minutes because I am making doing a batch at a time.  Either way should work.


Once the time is up, then I used the paint brush and wipe up some of the cream and put it back in the jar, to reuse.  I am cheap what can I say!  Rinse the rest of the cream off the glasses.

Remove tape and stencils, wash glass completely and let dry.
