Good afternoon friends,
I've still been making samples for our workshops using the Tonic window die, but I wanted to show that it can be so much more than a window, so for my Sunday Stampers project this week, I have turned it into a sewing cupboard!
This week Hels set the theme of using green in our projects - for full deets of the challenge and to see Hels' wonderful work just click here
First of all I covered the front of a card blank with a pretty sheet of card from a Tilda set and inked all around the edge with Bunded Sage distress ink.
I die cut the window using some green polka dot paper from the 'Tell Your Story' 6x6 pad by Teresa Collins. (I may be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure this was free with a magazine).
Then I used the rest of the paper to cut out a rectangle for base and legs.
The little squares for the drawers are waste from the die cut window layered on white squares, which I inked around the edges with bundled sage. Before I put the layers together on the drawers I added two green brads for the handles.
The cupboard is finished off by sticking to the backing paper (again from Tilda) with 3D foam pads, I cut out the bottom central divider so the machine looks like it is sitting on a shelf.
The coat-hanger, sewing machine, mannequin and sentiment are all from a set called 'Sew Pretty', which was also free with a magazine some time ago. To finish off the card I added some border strips cut from the dotty paper, two tiny embellishment reels (from stash), which I wrapped with cotton, a lace oddment and I made a 'little' jar from acetate and filled it with 'buttons' made with some paper remnants and my hole punch..as well a ribbon bow to the coat hanger and one of the buttons I made with my melt pot for my last Sunday Stampers card!
Thank you so much for visiting, I really do appreciate it - as I do the comments that you leave.
Love and Hugs...and happy crafting!
