Hello Paper Parade Fans !!
It’s Crystal here and today I have to projects for my anything goes , I make one and then just before the new challenge another one pops in my head , so I must let it out lol…Our Challenge #3 is “Anything Goes “
My second creation is a picture frame and I used papers from the Authentique Cherish Collection , these papers are so lush and thick perfect for making my flowers and it cut like a dream , this was from The Paper Parade
My daughter Zoe went to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese and she went in the photo booth and made some picture sketches of herself , and trust me this is the true Zoe ( she will be 8 soon ) , full of spunk and silliness ….
to create this I used Heartfelt Creation Sun Kissed Fleur stamp set and matching dies
first I stamp my flowers in brown ink
next I used my magnetic platform and lay down my paper next lay down die and line up , this magnetic platform is a dream for die cutting , my dies no longer slide around , dont need to tape them either
next I ink all my die cuts with a shimmer brilliance ink ( gives color and shimmer )
next i put my flower face down on my molding mat and run my ball end stylus in a horse shoe stroke around the edge of the petals and it will curl them up at you
next flip flower over and in the middle do a circle stroke and it will indent the flower now they are taking shape , do this to all of them and then layer in graduating in size glue together with glue dots
I add glossy accents and then add glitter to all flower centers ( the glitter mix is one I made with a scrappy friend Rhonda and we used all kinds of glitter for our mix , balls , tinsel ect ) this mix has black silver and clear in it
next I make a bow with seam binding ribbon and glut it down to the frame
next I randomly add my flowers , I used my own homemade glue dots to adhere
I love how this turned out and now it is sitting on my husbands desk at the office , he has gotten lots of compliments on it , we all need a picture in our work space of our family , they are the reason we work so hard ..
