Planter Overhaul with Chalking Inks.

Hello! Crystal here hosting the blog today to alter a planter with Powder Puff Chalking Inks.

I've had this old thing sitting in a closet and I thought I'd use the Powder Puff Chalking Ink to give the planter a vintage and retro look.

Here is the "before"
I started with Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Warm Sand on the Edges. Once that was dried I ran the PP Chalking ink in Latte to stamp some flowers. Using PP Chalking ink in Antique Linen I ran the ink pad over the edge again to give it a distress look.

The flowers you see are stamped in Powder Puff Chalking ink in Cherry Blossom and Antique Linen. The leafs are stamped in Seafoam and Evergreen.

Thank you card Inspiration

Hello there! Happy Monday, it's Crystal here to host the blog for you! Today we have some card inspiration featuring Quick Quotes Celebrate paper! This is a fun and simple card created using color combos provided by the paper!

To create this card I used Celebrate 200 and Celebrate 300. Layering this card was fun and was able to create this with only two sheets! The solid blue is Celebrate 200, then on top of that we have the other side of Celebrate 200. The ribbon was made using Celebrate 300.

The sentiment is stamped in PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Coral, and the border is stamped in PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Caribbean blue.

To finish this off, we have a coral button and a gorgeous butterfly from Petaloo.

Mother's Day Box

Hello there! Happy Friday! Crystal here for today on day 5 for the Petaloo Hop and I made a gorgeous box using Quick Quotes Catalina Island 300 and of course assorted Petaloo beauties.

I started by covering my card board box with Catalina Island 300. This is a square box so I cut (4) 4inx2in for the sides, and (1) 4in. x 4in.  for the top.

Next, I wrapped the sides with Fancy Trims in Burlap and the top with Fancy Trim Burlap in Teal.  Once the trimmings were glued, I made a big bow with Fancy Trim Burlap in Natural.

I began by decorating the bow using Teal Spring Dahilias, and Spice Dahilias. The leaves are from Spring Darjeeling collection and the tiny little white flowers are Petites in cream. 

Next I decorated the sides with the Spring Darjeeling collection in teal.

To finish it off, I added some pearls and created a tag from Quick Quotes Catalina Island Chipboard Die Cuts

My box turned out pretty cute and it was so simple to make!
