Finally I was able to spend 45 min in my craft room. I have been cooking a baking a lot for my family over the past few weeks which has cut into my crafty time. Honestly, after all the holiday crafting I just needed something else to focus on.
I got some new goodies and wanted to play. I picked up Tim Holtz "Umbrella Man" die and a vintage stamp set with amusement park images. I really like this die. I'm not too sure why I do, it just feels so retro UK to me. It's one of those dies I look at and think how much I like the look of it. So I grabbed it.
This vintage stamp set is by Glitz called Afternoon Muse. I stamped the corner stamp at opposite corners in versamark and then clear embossed to create a resist. This inks are all TH Distress inks, layered for this pretty Valentine look. I attached a vintage lock to a hook clip as an added layer.
The Umbrella Man is cut 3 times. I cut him first with a cereal box, then layered pattern paper and touched him off with a cork Umbrella. I usually see him in black. Every time I saw this die all I could think of was using pattern paper.
Save everything...I have been holding onto these blue "TICKET"...tickets since December! I know...how cool am I! The "LUCKY IN LOVE" ticket is stamped from my new SMS Crazy for You stamp set, just in time for Valentines. I attached the Tickets with my Tiny Attacher...love this tool!
Use Diamond Glaze and coat your gear for a glossy look.
I distressed some TH Gears, metal clip and the definition of "LOVE AFFAIR". Here's a TIP, if you haven't already thought of it. Use a dictionary and cut out the word and definition to add a unique layer to your project.
YEP, I made this one! It's been almost 2 weeks since I was in my craft room. I guess everyone needs a wee break now and then! HEY, GUESS WHAT! I'm going out of town this weekend....NO KIDS! Seriously, that never happens. My husband has a work function and the rest of the time we'll be slumming it in a fancy A$$ Spa!
***It's my BIRTHDAY next week.***
