Here’s a quick project I put together this week. And by quick I mean, an hour or less! It started out as a card, but I switched over to the frame and I like it a lot better!
I started with the Fancy Pants papers and little pre-printed card, added the transparency “Love”, then die cut the flowers with Bitty Blossoms and added the Nestabling.
The flowers were rolled and adhered with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Dodz™ adhesive dots. They’re so easy, I’ll have to put together a post on that soon.
These are my supplies:
SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L: MyStik™ Permanent Strips, MyStik™ Permanent Fine Adhesive, Dodz™ 3D, 3D Foam Squares, Photo Corners – Classic Style, Black
Fancy Pants Designs: It’s the Little Things Collection, papers and Glitter Cuts
Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur® Machine and S5-086 Bitty Blossoms
WorldWin Papers: Kraft Cardstock
Want2Scrap: Say it With Bling
Clearsnap: Colorbox Creamy Brown Fluid Chalk Ink

Today I have a 5 x 7 canvas with stamped tea cups, precariously stacked.
I had the idea in my head, loved the direction it was going in with the stamped and colored cups, but then it just seems like it needs something else…but I ran out of time and brain cells over the weekend. This is one of those things that I’ll set aside and most likely rework until I am happier with it.
On that note though, I like that it really looks like an elegant Victorian tea cup. I used embossing ink, carefully applying it to the rim only, by inking just that part of the die template, called reverse stenciling. I embossed in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine, then added embossing powder and heated.
The saucer is heat embossed the same way. I curled the cups to make them look rounded, and used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and Crafty Foam Tape to give the cups some lift.
