Playing with Chippies in a new way!

Hi everyone!!! Stopping by to share a little quick thought with ya! Ok so I had a thought.. Ya scary me thinking huh?! LOL I have thought on many occasions about how would I turn a chippy into a stamp... Not only could you use it for dimension on your creations but you could actually use it as a stamp. How about getting more bang for your buck! I think I have figured it out.. Just a couple of items ya need actually.. Cardboard, foam sheet (this protects the cardboard and gives a little cushion to the chippy), a chippy you would like to use as a stamp, and some gel medium, and glue.

Here are a couple of pictures for visuals..

The Flying Unicorn store can hook ya up with chippies and Gel Medium if you are in need of those things.. Foam sheets can be found at wally world.. Cardboard is pretty easy to comeby. 

Now to prep the chippy for use you will need to coat it with Gel Medium. Be sure your application is smooth and no excess in areas not needed or shown. Glue your foam to the cardboard and then the chippy to it. Ta Da! Ready made stamp.. Now grab some paint or ink and play! 

Oooo this is gonna be FUN!!

Seeeee I told ya!! Hummm needs more!

Yup I think it is pretty complete now ;) 

Just think of all those excess chippy pieces just waiting to be made into a stamp!

Got those wheels a turning now huh! :) Have a great day all!

Springtime Play with Petaloo

Hello all of you Petaloo fans out there in cyber world!! I am here today to share a little project I made using some little Wal-mart finds. My mom found them for me to use. Well they wasn't that pretty.. Nice.. But not that pretty.. So what is a girl to do?! PETALOO!! Yup! Petaloo makes every project wonderful and come to life. From the flowers to the trims and everything in between!! I enjoyed playing sooo much! Here is the project...

The little arrangement was just eggs and a few sprigs of plastic foliage. The base was just burlap.. Ahhh Burlap! Well Petaloo has gorgeous Burlap Blooms!! Oh and trims too!! I added a little bit of the cream Burlap trims with some of the Crochet Lace and trims in cream as well. This made the base look soooo much better! Love the delicate antique feel it has now. I also use the Lace trims in taupe on the top of the little bird house. This tied in well with the base. All that was left to do was remove those plastic sprigs and a egg and add my bird house. I did rearrange the burlap that was already in the arrangement, this was a perfect bed for my birdhouse to go on top of.. Next was the super fun part of adding in the gorgeous Burlap and Canvas blooms!! I couldn't forget the sweet little butterfly either! He was the cherry on top of a sweet spring arrangement! Here are a few close ups of the details..
