Be You Display Stand

The Ton Stamps Power Pumps, Picket Fence Studios It's Peopley Out There sentiment, Erin Lee Creative Babe sentiment,Sizzix Scoreboards XL Display Stand die, acrylic paint 


Ok, so obviously I'm all about these display stands that fold flat and fit in an A9 envelope~

I'd probably ship this one in a bubble envelope, because of the bulky blossom pom pom.

I kinda wanna keep this one for myself. ;)

Shhhh Stand and Sign

I was asked to make a bigger "shhh" reminder stand (than the Scoreboards die).

 I die cut thin chipboard with a Spellbinder's Grand Dahlia die, and I layered it a few and mounted it on a stand.

I also made a matching sign for a doorknob, just with the dahlia die.

I washi blocked and acrylic painted, adding Glitterific Paint to the green section and Glitter Glue I found at Joann's for the purple.

Now the stand ended up being top heavy so I added an extra layer of thick chipboard on the base and didn't lock the back flap in. It basically stands straight up (stuck down with Scortape).

I wouldn't make a stand this tall in the future, just because I like to lock things in.

 It makes me a little twitchy that it's not locked in, but it's not going anywhere and shouldn't fall over since I ScorTaped it with a 1/8 inch strip.

I appreciate your sweet visit today!

I love to paint acrylic on cards!

I use a strip of washi for a clean line and coordinate a similar Glitterific shade.

You can't have a view without them eyes. ;)

Thanks for stopping by friend!

Daily Tracker Stand

 The original reason I bought this Scoreboards Display die, was so I could create a daily pill tracker.

I replaced this one I created in 2011; it broke a few months ago.

Honestly, it lasted longer than I thought it would.

The amazing border is from Uniko Stamps; I won it from The Male Room Challenge and their 8th Birthday Challenge.

(Thank you so much Bev and The Male Room ladies, I love it!!)

Thank you for your sweet visit today~

Hello Beautiful Display Stand

OBSESSED with this gorgeous Picket Fence Studios stamp set and Scoreboards die I've been messing with lately.

Picket Fence Studios Life Happens. Lashes Help, Sizzix Scoreboards XL Display Stand die, Aladine Seth Apter Pearly Pale Peach Paste, Glitter Glue

I used washi to get a clean line of Aladine Seth Apter Izink Pearly Pale Peach Paste. 

When it dried, I applied orange glitter glue I found in the kid's craft section.

I took pics of both angles so you can see how the color shifts in the light.



Have a good one friends!
