This week on the Spellbinders blog it was all about Gift ideas. I had some 7Gypsies 6″ x 6″ Shadowboxes for quite a while and thought it would be great to alter one. I hope you have time to check out my post with step by step instructions HERE. I used a picture of my kids from 10 years ago. They were so cute when they were little.  Altering items is definitely out of my comfort zone. Let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

I created this card last week for the CAS challenge on Spitcoast, the CAS-ual Friday challenge and that week’s CAS(E) this Sketch!. I started by cutting three leaves with the new MFT Falling Leaves Die-namic dies out of 7 Gypsies Conservatory paper. The edges of the leaves were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, layered together with foam adhesive squares and tied on top with black embroidery thread.

The bottom right and top left of a  3″ x 5″ piece of Teresa Collins Spring Fling patterned paper were rounded, the edges were sanded and the paper was stitched to a 1/8″ bigger piece of black cardstock. The layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half.

A sentiment from the new Falling Leaves stamp set was stamped in Jet Black Archival ink on the bottom right of the card. The leaves were adhered to the upper right hand side of the card. Black Baby Bling Rhinestones were adhered above and underneath the leaves to finish off that card.

Thanks so much for looking! Have a wonderful day!
