Inspiration! Using Dryer Sheets to make a Flower

Hi...Debbie here to share an inspirational post.
(I saw this on Splitcoast Stampers and really liked it.)
I am going to show how I make a flower using used dryer sheets, circle punches, spray paint, glitter glue & a brad to hold it all together.

To start, use your circle punch (it's best to try to use three different size punches if you have them...I only have two circle punches so I had to cut 4 of the bigger one and trim them down to make them smaller.)   
Punch out 6 circles on cardstock to use as your template to cut them out on the dryer sheet.
Note: Don't try punching just the dryer sheet, it does not work.  It will jam up your punch.
Use a scissors to cut around your template on the dryer sheet.
Next lay your cut out dryer sheet circles on paper towels to spray them with the paint.
Let them dry...the dryer sheets will dry a little lighter than it looks when wet.
After they are dry...lay them out on a sheet of wax paper and use your glitter glue to go around the edges of  3 of your circles.
Allow the glitter glue to dry completely.
Then stack your circles - using the biggest circle with the glitter glue on it as your bottom piece.
One glitter glue circle, on plain circle, one glitter circle, etc.
Then add a brad to the center to hold them all together, finishing your flower.
Now you have a flower to add to a card, scrapbook page, or any other project you want to.

I hope I have inspired you to try different things in your creativity!
Have fun!

Inspiration Post: Acetate and Alcohol inks

Hello again and today I am back with another inspiration post.  I find these the most difficult post of all.  Anyhow I hope you like what I came up with.

What you will need
Acetate template
Cardstock template
Acrylic paint and paintbrush
Alcohol inks  
Blending tool
Stamps of your choice


For this project I used Lots of Labels

  Apply a few drops of Alcohol inks to the stamp and then blend them together with your blending tool.

Now stamp onto the front of your acetate template. Let the ink dry.  (I used an old acetate gift box.  I never throw them away as you never know when you will need it.) For the purpose of this tutorial and photographing I stamped some  ink to get a clearer picture.

Once the ink has dried, turn your template over and paint the back with your paint.  You can go lighter or darker, it is really up to you.

While the paint is still wet, turn your template back to front side up and stick down onto your card stock.  The wet paint replaces having to use glue.

The end result on a card.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you all have a wonderful day

Inspiration post - DIY Enamel dots

Hi everyone, it's Valerie !


I've seen few times this trick on the web, and I did try it for you : DIY enamel dots.
You will need fusible beads, an oven and a cookie sheet with parchemin paper.


Place the fusible beads on the parchemin paper, and put it in the oven at maximum heat for few minutes.


Watch closely the beads, when they look like half pearls, they're ready :


Let them cool completely and you will have new enamel dots !


You can make bigger dots by melting several beads together.

Have fun !
Valerie
