Hello there again! It’s Amanda Fitterer and I’m back with another fun bunch of projects to share with you! I had so much fun guest designing with the June 2020 box! I couldn’t stop making things!!
My first project is these gorgeous earrings I made using Shrink Prink (by Dress My Craft). I stamped the images using Staz-On ink so it would dry quickly and not smear.
I colored the images with colored pencils on the matte (opposite) side.
I cut the images out with precision scissors and then used a 1/8″ hole punch on both leaves to create a whole for my earring wires.
I used my heat tool to shrink them down and then added the earring wires.
The 2nd project I created was an elephant keychain. I used the same steps as the earrings but used a 1/4″ hole punch instead.
The next project I created was this beautiful watercolor elephant card.
I stamped the image with Catherine Pooler Midnight Black ink. This ink pad is waterproof so I don’t have to worry about the watercolor smearing the ink.
I used Altenew watercolor markers and a water brush to color the image. I then splattered the watercolor all over the card front.
The last project I did was a fun light-up card using Pear Blossom Press’s EZ Lights.
I used some dies to create a “window” for my card front. I cut down a piece of vellum and folded it in half to make it thicker.
I stamped my image with Staz-On ink so that it would dry quickly and not smear.
I colored the backside of the image with Copic markers.
I taped my vellum to the backside of the window with tape. I also stamped my sentiments on black cardstock with VersaMark Watermark ink. I used white embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment with my heat gun. I used scissors to cut the sentiments down.
I added 3D foam strips to the back of my card and taped my EZ Lights onto my card. I used double-sided tape and 3D foam strips to assemble the card so that when you press the sentiment “kind”, the card lights up!
I had such a fun time guest designing with this box! Thank you so much for checking out my posts!
