Oh My!

Hello my friends!

TGIF!!! And is such a beautiful morning!

I have a card to share with you.
It is for The Shabby Tea Room

Here is my card...

Almost all products are from Kaisercraft. Except the pin which is Maya Road, the tiny white flowers which are my stash, ribbon, gems and glitter are from Michaels. The tag punch is Mc Gill. The sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse. 

How beautiful are those Kaisercraft papers and wood frame and silhouette. I covered the silhouette with coordinating KC paper. I also added a Kaisercraft rub-on to the bottom edge of the paper.
Well, I applied for the Kaisercraft DT call...keep your fingers crossed for me!

I made the burlap flower using a circle Spellbinders die. I folded each circle in half, glued, than in half again and glued, than layer each petal until you achieve the desired look.  The beautiful pin and leaves are Prima.
The seam binding ribbon is from Simple Treasures Etsy Shop. The button is from Papertrey Ink. The feathers and purple flower cluster are from Michaels.

Then I filled it with some yummy fresh candy from a local candy shop here in Staten Island, Phillips Candy of Coney Island ( yup, Coney Island is in Brooklyn!).

Shabby Frame

Hello my friends!

How are you on this beautiful day?  Yes, I am in great mood...the weather has been gorgeous and it just makes me smile!!!!

The project I am sharing with you today is for two challenges...

The Shabby Tea Room
Here we have to use aqua, pink, neutrals and flowers











and

 The Ribbon Reel


 Here we have to use something we recycled
on our project.










Here is what I made...


I painted the frame in a light cream.  Then I used Hero Arts flourish stamp in archival galaxy gold ink.

I cut the banner from Pink Paislee London Market paper. The buttons and twine are from Papertrey Ink. The lace trim is from HA. Flowers and gems are from Michaels.

The dressform die is TH Sizzix. Same papers were used.  I made the flowers using TH Sizzix die also.  I followed these instructions HERE....this lady is FABULOUS!!!  The flourish die is from Memory Box. The beautiful seam binding ribbon is from  Debs Simple Treasures.  I used shabby pink distress ink and Tea Rose glimmer mist to color the flower. The center was made with a Mc Gill punch and white leftover fillers. For the cream flower I used Vanill Breeze glimmer mist. The center gem is Recollections. The pins are from Joanns.












Now for The Ribbon Reel...
here is what I recycled...

Can you guess what they are?....
The metal stems to pre-made flowers.  When I use the flower blossom, I save the stem.
Then I can make my own flower buds. Here they are..


I use the TH Sizzix die Tattered Florals ( the same I used for the big pink and cream flowers). I sprayed them with Vanilla Breeze and Old Lace glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.
I'm sorry for the loooong post, but I hope I didn't leave anything out!
Any questions, just ask.

Thanks for stopping by!
