The Crayon Box

Hello! I know it has been forever and a day since I posted on here but I had so much fun with this latest project that I just had to share!

I found these adorable ceramic crayons in the dollar section of Target! I fell in love with them right away and knew that I wanted to make a crayon box to hold them!

targetcrayonsadj

So I got out some chipboard and measured the crayons and starting cutting. The measurements I used are –

sides – 5 1/2″ by 1 3/8″

bottom – 8″ by 1 3/8″

front  – 8″ by 5 1/2″

back – 8″ by 5 1/2″

I used a product called Tear Mender to adhere the pieces to each other and after it had dried I used wide clear packing tape on all the edges.

Using an oval die cut as a guide I drew the semi circled line for the front of the crayon box.

Next I covered the box with BumbleBee Gingham/Linen paper from Doodlebug.

I used Darice’s wood glue, sponged it on with a foam brush and then smoothed the papers over the area of the box.

Using washi tape from WRMK I added the green lines typically found on a crayon box.

To make the label – I cut out an oval from black paper, stamped and embossed the word “crayons” and “6” using the fantastic Crayon Alphabet from Stampin’ Up! I then doodled some lines on there and wrote the word count under the number six!

Now my box was ready to hold the crayons!!

Day 1 – GLITZY GLITTER

~Sweet As Can Bee Card ~

sweetascanbeeadj

I love this cute bee girl that is sadly a retired stamp set from MFT – it is a big favorite with me, so I hope it is ok that I used her for this card. I stamped her in Versafine black ink on watercolor paper, embossed with clear embossing powder and used my “Ziggy“s to color her in. How I added my Doodlebug glitter: I put down two strips of crafty power tape from Scrapbook Adhesives and poured my Beetle Black glitter onto them and rubbed my finger over it to press it in to the tape. For the yellow glitter-y triangles I used an SU! set called Little Shapes and stamped them with YoYo Yellow craft (pigment) ink and then put the Bumblebee glitter on while still wet – It did not stick horribly well but there is some shimmer there! Some Doodlebug Sequins added another touch of glitz and my card is done!

~ Hi, Honey card ~

hihoneyadj

This card was made up of scrap papers – I used MFT‘s BluePrints # 1 to do all the layers for my card. My main image (yes, I am using the adorable Bee girl again) was stamped on watercolor paper with Versafine black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and then I water colored her using my “Ziggy“s and a wet paintbrush.

Such a fun image to color – I love it.

DAY 4 – DELIGHTFUL DIE-CUTTING

~ You’re Brilliant card ~

brilliantadj

My lightbulb card was die cut using Lightbulb Die-namics from MFT.  Scrap paper was used for all pieces, including the vellum and shiny silver paper, except for the cool chevron paper – that was part of a prize from MFT. One of their paper pads – I die cut the panel using Vertical Stitched Rectangles. Sentiment (from this set) was stamped on it with Versamark Ink and embossed with white powder. For the rays I used two post-it notes and placed them and then sponged Daffodil Delight ink in between where I placed the papers. After all the rays were sponged I added Wink of Stella to each of the rays and the vellum layer of the lightbulb.

Soak Up the Sun

I got up bright and early this morning – Up with the Sun and I hid out in my craft room for awhile making this card!!! SO much fun!!

~ Soak Up the Sun ~

flamingosadj

I dug into my Doodlebug stash and used two Designer papers from the Sunkissed collection. I layered them on my card. Cut a Stitched Rectangle (Lawn Fawn) from white card stock and then added a skinny layer to it of Tempting Turquoise card stock (SU!). Now I could create my scene, I sponged and dotted some sand using Creamy Caramel ink and a marker, then I used Bliss Blue to sponge my sky. I set this aside and started working on my images.

I stamped with Black Versafine ink onto watercolor paper the flamingos, flower, and leaf from the Sunny Studios stamp set called Tropical Paradise. Embossed each image using clear embossing powder. I used my “Ziggy“s to color and then a wet paintbrush to blend. Using the Tropical Paradise die set also from Sunny Studio I cut the images out using my Big shot! My beautiful friend Mendi Yoshikawa gave this stamp set with dies to me for my birthday!! Thank you so much, Mendi!!

Now I just assembled my scene and used foam squares to adhere the pieces. Then I stamped the Soak Up the Sun sentiment in Memento black ink!

Birthday Cards – Another Twofer

Here are the other two cards I made during some play time this past weekend!

~Card # 1 Purple Flowers~

purplefloweradj

For this card I used a top folding piece of Lavender Lace cardstock and a 4 1/8″ by 5 3/8″ piece of thick vellum. First thing I did was use a circle die from MFT to cut out a circle from the vellum. I put the panel minus the circle into a Tim Holtz Notebook embossing folder. Used a 1/8″ hole punch to attach the vellum with ribbon to the card front. For the circle I die cut out I stamped some flowers from Heartfelt Thanks stamp set from Stampin’ Up! The ink colors used were Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Certainly Celery, and Garden Green – all from SU! I carefully laid the circle back in and put adhesive behind the flowers to secure it there!

Hello, ALL you BEAUTIFUL people!! SO glad you are here!!

Monday brought me a little more creative time in my craft room!!

I made this card:

triplescoopadj

This card needed to be CAS so I started out with a blank white cardstock that I layered on Positively Pink cardstock (SU!). I took the Here’s The Scoop set from Lawn Fawn and stamped a trio of ice cream scoops on various Doodlebug Glitter papers in Lily White, Cupcake, and Tangerine. The shiny metal paper I used for the scoop was a scrap in my scrap box! Embossed using Onyx Black Versafine Ink and Clear Embossing powder on a vellum banner. It was stapled on using a mini stapler.

The inside of my card says – You are SO COOL!!

I am so excited to be linking this card up to these challenges:
