Scrapbook Show Toys

Last Saturday I went to the Scrapbook show in Oaks Pa.  Of course I bought some Sizzix dies and I also got some bezels with glass pieces that fit in them.  I was playing with one and wanted to try a piece of water color paper I created on my Gelli Plate.  I colored the bezel with Gilders Paste.  Here are pics of the bezel and the parts.  First is on the paper with the completed bezel, second is the back so you can see what a difference the gilders paste makes!  I did paint the inside of the bezel and the top rim with Viva Decor Precious Gold Blackberry.

I also bought a Sizzix insert die (half price) for the Bigz XL pop-up card base.  I needed a card for a bridal shower, so made this.  Went together pretty quickly too!  The Forever is floating thanks to a piece of thick clear packaging plastic. I used purchased patterned paper which was perfect!  The flower print fell perfectly at the bottom front of the card.  I had to put the writing sideways inside, but I have since stamped and embossed Congratulations on the card bottom in the correct direction. The hearts and floral border are Martha Stewart punches.  Also used one of her flower punches for the flower layers, the tiny center flowers and the ones on the cover are from a Fiskars punch.  Lots of lovely little pearls in a very vintage beige I also got at the show.  Haven't had much creative time these days.  Been working on my Hoffman Doll.  Lots of sketches, none I'm loving.

Another Pop-Up Box Card

Made this for a friend who was ill, but by the time I finished it, she was well and back to work!  Oh well, will give it to her next weekend when we go to the Scrapbook show in Pa.  Used Double sided paper for the box part.  Had enough to cover the flaps, but decided to used a matching solid I embossed, inked, and rubbed with Inca Gold colors to panel the bottom.  Used lots of punches and dies. Very Springy!  Currently working on my Hoffman Challenge Doll but also have to fit in a Bridal Shower card.
