Let it Snow Decorative Stand

 


I've got display stands cut out of chipboard that are begging to be decorated!


I washi-blocked and acrylic painted the focal panel, and the deer and sentiment seemed to fit well.

This folds flat into an A9 envelope (but I'd mail it in a bubble envelope just to make sure it gets where it needs to be-it may be too thick for normal postal sorting).

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!




View Duo



I love to paint acrylic on cards!


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

Daily Tracker Stand



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




Uniko Background Builders: Squared stamp Hero Arts Flag Stamp & Cut, Sizzix Scoreboards XL Display Stand die, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Circles




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!!)

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.



 

OBSESSED.


Have a good one friends!

I Try to Hide My Thoughts


My gosh this sentiment is accurate ;).


Picket Fence Studios Life Happens. Lashes Help, Sizzix Scoreboards XL Display Stand die, My Favorite Things Stitched Oval Word Windows, Acrylic Paint



Here's a 3D interactive stand and it folds flat to fit in an A9 envelope.


This Sizzix die cuts chipboard like a dream!


I happened upon it at a Tuesday Morning and I've been having so much fun with it.



 


I used washi to block off a clean line when I painted blue acrylic straight to this white chipboard.

INkspirational DT Retro


It's time for another challenge at INkspirational!




Kindred Stamps Sew Special Kit Stencil (button markings), Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Essentials 1 die, Brutus Monroe Circle Dies, Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Wafer dies Thankful 2, Pink & Main Sweater Weather Paper Pad



This time the prompt is Retro~




 

This sweater weather paper pattern feels retro to me (the reddish orange married with bold colors reminds me of the 70's and the bold carpet I grew up with).

I added chunky buttons which were created with a special limited edition stencil that makes any circle a button, and layered over a bigger pop of color.
