out of order, please head to the SVG
Attic blog to start
at the beginning of the hop.
Here are the projects I created for this hop:
I’ve been experimenting with Dylussions Inks Sprays on watercolor paper so I used the watercolor paper to create the following cards.
The first card is from the Welcome Spring SVG Collection
. I cut out plain watercolor paper using my Cricut and then sprayed Heidi Swapp ink sprays on the base of the flower and the cut out flower shape, then I used the prepared watercolor paper to cut out the bird two times using my Cricut Expressions electronic cutter. I then added molding paste plus a small amount of black distress ink and applied it through Martha Stewart’s Angle Wings Stencil. This made the feathers on the bird appear more realistic, then on top of the feathers I added Heidi Swapp’s Tinsel ink spray with the sprayer. The eye is a mat pearl. The “Thinking of You – please know i care -” is a new sentiment from Unity Stamp Company.
For the second 6×6 card I used elements from the Give A Hoot SVG Collection
. I created the background by using an embossing pen to outline the branches and leaves on the designer card stock, then I added white embossing powder, heated it with the heat gun and when dry, I added green and yellow Gelatos, followed by spraying water and blending the colors together. I used the prepared watercolor paper and cut out the owl and the heart tree. The branch is cut out of a DCWV card stock. I also colored the leaves with Gelatos.
Then I stamped “miss you” with a $1 stamp I bought at Michael’s.
Here you can see the watercolor paper with the Dylussions in spray, I love the rich colors they produce.

Hello my crafty friends. For today’s post I made this 3D Mailbox from theLove Letters SVG File Isn’t this cute!! It’s the exact replica of a real mailbox. It’s very study and comes with a flag, front and back rims, and handle.
I used these colors because my niece chose them for her wedding and I really loved the combination
I also used the Full Split Monogram File
for the letter L for the front of the mailbox as well as the inside. You can purchase the whole alphabet set, or buy the letters individually. For the LUCERO I used the free font Typography Times Regular.
Here you can see the mailbox opened with the wedding guest cards inside.
The opening will accept card envelopes up to 5×7 inches
On the flag I stamped “Thank You” on both sides.
Be sure you account for the flag on the side panel when you add your own words, otherwise the flag will obstruct the Mr and Mrs, as in my case, but I also added it to the other side as you can see here:
For the name marquee, I cut out the 2015 using the same free font and added it to both sides as well.
Or you can add “Established” and the “Date” of the wedding.
And finally the back of the mailbox. Isn’t this fun? It has the same openings as a real mailbox. I added the a ribbon since the ribbon cannot be added to the front because of the handle.
I used the Spellbinders Mini Blooms and leaves to cut out the flowers and I attached them to the front and back rims.
So there you have it a 3D mailbox that can be used for many occasions – just let your imagination run wild.
This is where you can find the Tutorial
for this mailbox.
Until next time; happy craftying!!
I created this scarecrow card using the Anchors Aweigh step card from All at Sea SVG file. I resized the corn and the pumpkin from the Autumn Splendor Gift Bag as well as the scarecrow from the new Fall Ensemble SVG file. The background for the card was created by using a sunrise stencil and adding distress inks. The pumpkin closes up nicely so it can go in the envelope provided.
I’ve been admiring the die cut inlaid cards I’ve been seeing on different blogs so I created my own using my electronic cutter instead of dies. I used the Harvest Blessings Card Kit. From the Autumn Treasures card, from the same kit, I cut out the yellow layer then the sentiment in a green color then inlaid it on the negative cut out. The leaves are from the same kit and the Four Acorns Card. I embossed the acorns to give them a more realistic look.
These are just two ideas for using different kits and putting them together so you can make them your own creations.
