VC Rocks Anything But A Card Blog Hop!

VC Rocks!


Welcome to the VC Rocks Anything But A Card Blog Hop!  You have just arrived from viewing Kristi Jaenisch's wonderful works of art, and you can link back to her blog HERE.  I hope you are  enjoying all of the fabulous projects you've seen so far; this is such a talented group of stampers!  I have prepared 3 projects for you, and hope you like them.


The first project is a very simple one.  I ran the Northern Frost Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die through my Big Shot using a piece of Brushed Silver cardstock.  I used red and green Rhinestone Brads to attach the snowflakes to the candle.  I did this by pushing the brads through the snowflake opening and directly into the candle.  Very simple, quick and easy - and you can change up the look for different occasions and holidays.




Supplies: Big Shot, Northern Frost Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die, Ice and Fire Circle Rhinestone Brads, Candle, Stand

My next project is a To Do/Calendar binder and matching post-it-note holder that I made for office.  I got the idea for the covers from a picture I saw in the Summer Mini Catalog on page 24.  The binder I used was a bigger than the sample shown, so I added a few more flowers to my cover.  I am so glad that the Beyond the Garden designer paper was carried over into the new catty; I love how bright and colorful it is!  I also like the look of the twisted ribbon and the dimension it gives to projects.  I have found that a strip of sticky strip is the best thing to use to keep the ribbon from coming off.  Here's the details:




Stamps: Fabulous Florets, Inspired by Nature (saying), Charming (saying)
Papers: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, Melon, Mambo, Beyond the Garden
Inks: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo
Accessories: Small Oval Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon, Pearls, White Baker's Twine, Sticky Strip Tape, Paper Piercing Tool, Dimensionals, Scissors, Sewing Machine, Thread, Coasters, Post-it-Note

For my last project I chose to do a bookmark.  This was another very simple and fun project to do.  I used the Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die and cut (5) of the large flowers, and (3) each of the medium and small flowers using Island Indigo cardstock.  I also cut (1) large flower using Whisper White cardstock.  I then layered the flowers together, added some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and then attached a large Whisper White brad.   I attached the flower to the bookmark using a dimensional.  Here's a front and side view of the flower.




Papers: Island Indigo, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, Daisies #2 Flower Bigz Die, Paper Piercing Tool, White Brad, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Large Paper Clip/Bookmark, Dimensional

Thanks again for stopping by; I hope you enjoyed my projects.  Please also be sure to check out the VC Rocks blog at this link: VC ROCKS BLOG.

Wonderful projects, and your candle is the bomb. So many great projects it is hard to pick just one, so I won't love them all.
