Hey crafty friends! We are back with day 3 of home décor projects! We hope that you have enjoyed this week’s inspirations! Are they just fantastic! Lots of inspirations from our talented ladies!
We begin with Vicki’s project. I adore her butterfly coasters! What a great idea. Here’s Vicki with her project.
“Hi all, Vicki here. Today we are showcasing Home Decor projects. The timing on this was perfect – I needed what I made!
Here is my finished project;
I made a couple of coasters for my desk! These are so easy to make [and] very cheap. I picked these up at Home Depot for 5¢ each!
Step 1 – Using the script stamp from IBS Background Basics III I stamped the coaster using Black Staz On ink.
Step 2 – Sand over the stamped script to minimize the starkness of the black.
Step 3 – I stamped the butterfly using the Butterflies set, and dabbed on color using yellow, green,and purple Staz on
Step 4 – Here is a close up of the 2nd one I made.
I love that once these dry [in minutes] they are ready to use! No additional covering is needed – that’s why using Staz On is important.
See you at the end of the month with the new [fabulous] release!
Next up we have Lisa with an amazing door hanging project! This is so amazing! I just adore the pinks and blacks together! Here’s Lisa with her project.
Hi everyone! I trust you are enjoying our Home Decor week here on the Inspired by Stamping Blog. Today I have a door (or wall) hanging for my craft room using the Fancy Alphabet and Butterflies stamp sets along with Fancy Label Dies 2.
Here is a picture of my project hanging on the door to my craft room:
Of course, my project could be hung on a wall rather than a door.
Let’s take a closer look and get on to the details:
The chalkboard décor piece was a Dollar Spot find! After stamping the letters from the Fancy Alphabet stamp set, I die-cut them with the smallest of the Fancy Label Dies 2 and sponged while still inside the die. Baker’s twine was perfect for turning the letters into a banner. Some trim and rolled roses made for pretty embellishing.
Here’s a close-up of the butterflies:
The vellum butterflies were cut on my Portrait with the Butterflies Cut File. I used Versamark to stamp the smallest detail butterfly, from the Butterflies stamp set, then embossed in white and black. A few pearls completed the pretty butterflies.
I hope you enjoyed my home décor project. I certainly enjoy seeing it as I enter my craft room.
Until next time…
A very special thank you to Vicki and Lisa. Both projects were out of this world gorgeous! I am so thankful to my designers for all their designs. They lift me up and I hope that they inspire you too.
We will be away tomorrow. A few of my designers have had to take some time away because of personal reasons. One of the fundamental core beliefs in my business, is that family and ourselves are the most important. What we do is for fun and it is also a spiritual time for each of us to share, to grow and also to create. At times life throws us curve balls and we must do the best for us and sometimes that is to take time away to recharge, rest and heal. My designers are part of my family. And sometimes we must put down our craft, to tend to family and ourselves. And this month a couple of them needed that. Don’t worry, they will be back soon.
I hope that each one of you have a wonderful weekend. Happy Mother’s Day to each of you. May you be spoilt rotten and have a moment to spend doing something that brings you joy. May the children and hubbies in your life honor you and shower you with love.
I look forward to seeing all the photos on Instagram this weekend. With love and crafty hugs, Joanna xx
