I am SOOOO excited to present to you our very last Collection of the year. If you ‘ve been hopping along with us, and came from Kerry Urbatch’s blog, you have reached the end of the hop. If not, then, head on over to Cristena Bagne’s blog and the start of the hop.
It’s been so much fun designing this years stamps, dies and stencilz. I think this one has been the most fun, and the most difficult. For November, I wanted to design a collection that you could use for the upcoming Holidays and for Valentine’s Day.
It’s the time of year that we all love to craft. Whether it be cards or gifts or home decor, I wanted you to be able to use this collection for that too. I hope that I’ve succeeded. As a “test,” I created this little mailbox that can be hung from a doorknob or on the inside of a door. 😉
You can also use it as a home decor piece to place on your table or mantle.
The mailbox base came from the Dollar Tree. I painted it black and used Crackle Medium on top. Once the medium was dry, I painted a coat of white chalk paint on and the crackling began.
I painted the flag red and sponged the edges of the mailbox black for that enameled look. Then, I fussy cut a poinsettia napkin and used Mod Podge to decoupage it on the mailbox.
To finish off the mailbox I used a black Sharpie Marker and the Skinny Alphabet Stencilz to add the word “Noel”. Then, I thinned out black paint and flicked a spatter on the mailbox, and touched up any edges with black.
Finally, I filled it with picks and flowers from the Dollar Tree and a Buffalo Checked Bow.
TA DA! I hope you like it. I’ve been having so much fun with this release I plan on playing a lot more in the coming weeks. ’Tis the season, after all.
