  3. Frilly & Funkie It’s A Small Small World

    17th August, 2016

    It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!

    This challenge is hosted by Cec (CW Card Creations), who has chosen the theme IT’S A SMALL, SMALL WORLD …CEC says, “Create or alter something small in a shabby chic or vintage style. Your finished project can be anything from the size of an inchie, matchbook or domino to the size of a playing card or note card, which means anything from 1 inch to 4 inches and it does not have to be flat. Be creative and let us know in your post just how small your project is.”

    You might think it’s a tad early for Halloween projects, but after the launch of Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Halloween stamps, there was no early! I picked up the mini Halloween #5 stamp set but I couldn’t decide how to incorporate all the stamps I wanted to use, (all of them), into one project, especially such a small small project. It was then that I spied the label frames stamp set and I had a crazy idea…

    Create lots of mini cards, each measuring 2 inches by 2.5 inches and play with all the stamps in the set…

    These cards would be perfect for mini Halloween party invitations, card toppers for larger invitations and gift bags or even dare cards for Halloween parties. I’ll be back on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog on Saturday with a step-by-step for these Halloween cards and the finished project. I hope you’ll join me then.

    In the meantime, I hope you will find time to join in the challenge and pop over to Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s projects. All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

     



  4. Frilly & Funkie By The Sea

    3rd August, 2016

    It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!

    This challenge is hosted by Kathy (Kathy by Design), who has chosen the theme BY THE SEA …Kathy says, “It’s summertime, and our minds turn toward the shore where we find sparkling sands, delicate shells and refreshing breezes. This sets the theme for our latest BY THE SEA challenge. Let’s take a virtual beach trip by creating any kind of vintage or shabby chic project that features a nautical or beach theme and color palette..”

    iGirlZoe: By The SeaThis is the perfect challenge to return to the Frilly and Funkie design team after taking a break for a few months to move.

    Our new harbour view inspired the tag I’ve made for this challenge.

    iGirlZoe: By The Sea
    This idea-ology photo booth photo reminded me of a summer tradition here in Denmark, where the graduating students ride around town on the back of a float wearing white graduation caps celebrating their success with their class.

    iGirlZoe: By The Sea
    I used a spritz and flick technique that I learned from taking Tim Holtz’s Creative Chemistry 101 online class for my tag base.

    iGirlZoe: By The Sea
    I love the versatility of this linen ribbon. By pulling and working it with your fingers you get this cool net look. Usually I would blend some distress ink over the top, but this time I left it natural to look like fishing net.

    iGirlZoe: By The Sea
    I added a word band, but it was begging to be distress crayoned!

    iGirlZoe: By The Sea
    It is SO much easier to add distress crayon than paint over the word bands, literally a 5 second job. I love how it makes the word bands pop and by rubbing gently with some kitchen paper you get this cool distressed look.

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will find time to join in the challenge and pop over to Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s projects. All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
