May Scrappers Delight Challenge

Today I am sharing with you a New Project I did for Mothers Day, the Idea was taken from the Challenge we were doing on our Facebook Page Scrappers Delight. Please join us on our next online even may it be a Challenge or a Swap. The May Challenge was to take two different brands of stamps and bring them together to create a new.

So here it is, I been doing quite a lot of sewing here lately instead of scrapbooking and all I decided to make myself something to hang on the wall or door to my crafting room. I had this old handing sign laying around that I used when I had my old business Amber’s Paw Stop and I thought it was about time I stared to recycle it. I painted it white I don’t remember how many coats I had to put on to cover the old paint that we had on it. Then I attempted to do the technique where you use Mod Pudge to transfer printed Images onto a serface this kept going wrong and I finally gave up my attempt to transfer the Mom’s Creative Corner onto the wood.

So I decided I would make a trip to Hobby Lobby and see what they had out for Mother’s Day and well, I didn’t find anything that interested me till I found the Tim Holtz section! WOW that was inspiring for sure this was a NEW section at my Hobby Lobby! I purchased his stamps with sewing and his Die Cute for the Cuttlebug, witch by the way I still love using! I finally had some creative flowing coming through. I originally purchased the little flowers I used for my daughters Fairy Costume I was making to match her American Girl Doll costume I made. I thought they seemed to fit nicely in this project too!

For images I used Magnolia Tilda Sweet Rainbow Coll. - Sweetie Tilda along with Shery K Designs vintage-furniture 006 and I merged GraphicFairy sewing printable vintage image all together to create the right side. I colored the image using a few different copic markers. For the background I just stamped right onto the wood using Tim Holtz stamps and his distress inks with his new spray. I found the spool of thread already decorated in my mix of things I had from when I was a little girl (been trying to clean house too.) Well I hope this projected inspired you to go out and try new things even if they don’t come out the way you intend you can make something else out of it and it can still be beautiful!

Happy Crafting,
