an ornament and a recipe

soft-summer-ornament-diane-zechman.jpgDon’t ask me what these two things have in common.  Nothing really.  They are just two projects left from the gatherings I recently attended that I haven’t shared yet.

This first one was a tutorial on Splitcoast a few weeks ago.  It is rare that I try a tutorial right away, but I thought this was cool and tried it the day the newsletter went out!  You can find the directions here

I didn’t use markers on my project, though.  I never seemed to have good luck with regular markers on shrink plastic.  Instead, I stamped the outline with Stazon ink and colored the image with colored pencils.  This way it doesn’t smear when you roll it up to insert it into the glass ball.  This was a fun project to try and it is kinda cool to see it shrink inside the ball.  

The shrink plastic was cut with my Nestabilities and then I outlined the edges with faux stitches using a fine point permanent marker.

stamps- Warm Words, Soft Summer; ink- Stazon Black; accessories- colored pencils, thread, glue dots, hole punch, shrink plastic, Labels 3 Nestabilities, clear glass ornament. 

6x6-pie-crust-diane-zechman.jpgThe second project is another 6×6 recipe card.  This time I decided to scrap the pie crust recipe my MIL used to make.  It makes the best pie crust, IMO!

This is a very simple page but I was short on time (and mojo!) LOL.  I love the decorative paper, though, with the rolling pins on it!

The Whipper Snapper pie was stamped twice…once on the recipe layer and again on a piece of silver cardstock.  Then the pie pan was cut out of the silver paper and paper pieced on the first one. 

stamps- Whipper Snapper Homemade Pie, SU! It’s All Good, Karen Foster Snap Stamps; paper- Red, White, Black, Silver, dp- Creative Imaginations; ink- Memento Black, Real Red; accessories- Copic markers, Photo Corner punch, Scallop Circle punch, Flower punch, button. 

Have a great day!

  7. The ornament is very pretty I really like the recipe card. I’ve never used the Nestabilities. I’ve seen them at Hobby lobby they are expensive so what makes them worth the money and how do you use them?
