Vroooom Keyring

I have a fun project to share today!

I used patterned paper from The Stamps of Life to make a fun keychain! All jewelry supplies at be found at Craft Fantastic. I love this one! Wouldn’t this be super cute for a new driver or even someone with a brand new car?Vroom Keychain Jeanne_Streiff

Add a generous amount of Fantastic Glaze & Glue to the back of the glass (Large Circle) and position glass over sentiment. After it sets a couple minutes wipe of any extra glue around edges. Let dry completely.Vroom Keychain 1 Jeanne_Streiff

Once dry cut off the excess paper and add to your with Fantastic Jewelers Dots.

You will do the same steps with the little heart charm. I used an Large Silver Round tray for the car charm and a Silver Mini Dotty tray (and Mini round glass) for the heart. Assemble both charms to a Silver Keyring w/ClipsVroom Keychain 2 Jeanne_Streiff

 Acckkk… I’m in love with the Bird Crazy Stamp Set and matching Bird Crazy Framelits Die Set! I decided to make a spattered background for my birdy Halloween card. Frightened bird jeanne_Streiff

I splattered the background with Island IndigoPumpkin Pie, and Elegant Eggplant Ink (the same colors I used to watercolor my bird). Then I embossed with Texture Fades Cobwebs. I sponged the raised areas and edge of the panel with Soft Suede Ink. I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to trace over over the spider webs.  Crazy Birds 4  jeanne.streiff

Next I die cut the phrase (Thinlits Handwritten Halloween). I used my Sizzix Die Brush & Foam Pad to pop the phrase out. Crazy Birds 3  jeanne.streiff

I stamped the bird with Jet Black Stazon (and my MISTI… best stamping tool ever!) on Watercolor Paper. I left my stamp in the MISTI.. I’ll tell you why in a minute. I used an Aqua Painter and Island IndigoPumpkin Pie, and Elegant Eggplant Ink to watercolor my bird. Let dry completely and then put the colored image back in the MISTI and stamp a 2nd time for a perfect outline. No more washed out looking lines when you color… love that! Crazy Birds jeanne.streiff

Die cut the bird with the Bird Crazy Framelits Die Set . Take a look at how tightly these dies cut to the stamped image. Very cool!Crazy Birds 2 jeanne.streiff

I added a little spider to the corner made from a black brad. I added legs with a marker and teeny white eyes with a toothpick and some white acrylic paint.Crazy Birds 6  jeanne.streiff

 We have some new faces!
