Hello friends of ODBD! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful week! Today it is our privilege to spend time with our own talented and so sweet Angie! I know she will inspire you with her creative project! So here's Angie!
Hi everyone!! Angie here to share another project which began in the Target $1 Spot! I was super excited to see these silver frames a few months ago for a dollar each, so I bought three of them......I wish now that I would have grabbed more!
Here are some of the products I will be using:
"Faith, Hope, & Love" stamp set by Our Daily Bread designs;
Bo Bunny "Welcome Home" 6x6 designer paper pad;
Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles cutting die;
Spellbinders Mega Oval die;
Xyron Sticker Maker (not shown);Three frames purchased at Target.
Each of the three words from the "Faith, Hope, & Love" stamp set were stamped onto one piece of white vellum, with enough space in between for the oval die to fit.
Since most inks do not dry fast on vellum, I was able to stamp each one and then pour Ranger Clear Embossing Powder over the ink.
After adding clear embossing powder, each image was heated with my heat tool to turn the powder to a rubber-like, permanent finish.
Once each image was stamped and clear embossed, I place the Mega Oval die over them one at a time, centered the die, added scotch tape to the outside to hold it in place, then ran it through my die cut machine.
After all three ovals were cut, I trimmed the edges of the vellum by hand (on the embossed line from the die), I used my Xyron Sticker Maker to create a solid sticky backing for each. When using vellum, I don't like the adhesive marks to show through, even if you use vellum adhesive, so making a sticker out of each piece is my preference.
Each "sticker" was peeled off of the backing sheet and adhered to the ovals cut from the designer paper. The same sized die was used for the designer paper and the vellum, which is why I trimmed the vellum ovals by hand, to create a matted look.
This is a close-up view of one of the finished frames. I wasn't able to get quality photos for the finished pieces, due to the glare on the silver frame and glass, but you can click on the photo for a closer look if you like.
Here are all three together. These will likely find a home on the walls in my bedroom since it's mostly light blue.
Thanks for hanging out with me today! Make sure you stop by the $1 Spot at your local Target store....you never know what gems you might find!! :)
Thanks so much Angie! What a beautiful set to hang on the wall... and a great reminder of God's priorities as well! I know this will inspire our guests to try some home decor pieces themselves!!!
Please leave Angie some love here, and then visit her blog to see some incredible work from our sweetheart herself!
Thanks for spending some time with us today, and be blessed!
