Hazel and Ruby Stencil Masks

My blog has been neglected for such a long time...

I'm posting a project that I made using the Hazel and Ruby Stencil Masks....loooove these! If you aren't familiar with their masks, check them out HERE.

I used white paint daubers and pounced over the stencils on this clear lucite box, and then placed some Hazel and Ruby 'Chalk it Up' paper collection behind to show through.  I intend to put some short flowers that are all the same size but made some quick whimsical flowers with the same Chalk it Up collection, till then.  The flowers are masks that I spritzed with gold and then cut them out leaving the edge with a little of the gold.  The butterfly (so cute)  is on a mini canvas, and the rows of white flowers are also from Hazel and Ruby.



This is the back view...at least I covered the backs of my flowers!

In case you are interested...they really are all about 'homemade'...and are the nicest people.

Have a 'happy day'!

It's GIU Thursday!

Doesn't time fly when you are having fun?

My share for Growing in Unity today are two mini bags that can hold gift cards:

I used my "Sweet Thoughts of Spring" set that you can find at Unity HERE.  I wanted some sparkle, and just had to pull out my Stickles, which I haven't had in my hand in a looong time!  

psssst....my photo's may be a little too dark, but I had to get the Stickles to shine on camera.

 I really love these little chevron bags!

Not sure about the 'green' bunny, but hey, we're all different right? =)
 And I really love these little chocolate bags that remind me of ding dongs (the swirl)!
I bought these bags from Kim's Endless Inkabilities on Etsy.

Add in: Thanks to Julie Odil @ Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers, I'm also including this in the
I didn't know there was a 'stickles' challenge blog!!!  Thanks Julie!

I appreciate that you came by today!
Don't forget to leave comments on this weeks' posts, and for every comment I will put you in the drawing on Saturday to win some Unity itty bitty stamps!

Have a beautiful day!
Jen

GIU for Tuesday~

So you know how you have a few camera cards...and all of a sudden you can't find any of them...you know where I'm going with this right?  Due to not having the ability to take a photo right now (yea, right now right now, this evening) for my Unity Stamp Co GIU Tuesday...I'm flashing back to a card that I really enjoyed making.



I looove this Unity stamp....Everlasting Romance!  I stamped it with black Staz-On ink on a TENseconds Studio periwinkle metal foil sheet. After it dried I decided to hand emboss (outline) the entire stamp with a stylus to give it some dimension.   Then I used my sanding block and sanded the top a little...to give it some interest.  Added some ribbon, and a sentiment and frame w/bird from a 'used to be ippity' set called Just Wanted to Say.  I love these colors together!

Thank you for coming by today, even with this being a flashback.  I'm so glad that I already have my Wednesday project picture done already! *wink*

Have a fantastic day and enjoy!
Jen
