We’re excited, once again, to be partnering with Spellbinders for a Spring mini blog hop! As Spellbinders design partners this year, Stampendous has been blessed to use many of their exciting products and they are using ours. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week the Stampendous Design Team will be sharing fun projects made with the Spellbinders products we’ve received. Wednesday Stampendous will be a featured company on their blog and two of our designers will be posting tutorials focused on the newest Spellbinders products.
1. I painted this wooden box with acrylic paint from DecoArt Americana in Sky Blue and Cottonball. When dry randomly stamp Vintage Contract using Tuxedo Black Memento and swirl from Frantage Flowers Perfectly Clear Stamp Set with Beige Brilliance.
2. A white octagon was randomly stamped with a flower from the Frantage Flowers Set repeatedly with Beige Brilliance and set aside.
3. Stamp Beautiful Life on a smaller blue octagon with VersaMark ink and emboss with black. Sprinkle edges with Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel and heat from underneath so the powder doesn't blow off and set aside.
4. Die cut Spellbinders Grateful Lattice from light blue cardstock, sponge with Stonewashed Adirondack ink and sprinkle with Shabby White Embossing Enamel again heating from the bottom, set aside.
5. Die Cut Dreamweaver Stencils DD003 Leafy Branch stencil from light green paper and sponge with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
6. Now to assemble. Brush the box with Americana Decou-Page from DecoArt. Lay the white octagon on the wet Decou-Page. I let it dry a bit then brushed the top again with Decou-Page, laid down the blue octagon, let dry a bit. Repeat this process with the Grateful Lattice and the Leafy Branch and end with one final coat of Decou-Page.
7. Using Faber-Castell Pitt Pens in Cold Grey III and Black 199, trace around the octagons and leaves, blending with your finger.
8. The flowers are made with Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One. Place die on decorative papers and run through your die cut machine. Sponge edges with Tea Dye Distress Inks to give them an antique look, then tightly roll the flowers starting from the center. Glue the bottom of the flowers with 3 in 1 Glue from Beacon Adhesives, it dries pretty fast. Glue flowers to the box using 3 in 1 Glue.
Here's a closer look at the box.
