Just So Sporty Tin 2


I am looking forward to Thursdays now, because I get to showcase "Just So Sporty" for Melanie Muenchinger the designer of this stamp set and for Gina K Designs. Melanie is such a sweetie and asked me to be her Guest Designer for the a few weeks. This is week number two and for my project here I made a tin and earrings for my Mom, one of the biggest Denver Bronco fans here in Denver! She has been away for a week on vacation and I thought I would make her a little welcome home g
ift to wear when she gets home on Sunday, just in time for the game.
The tin is from Gina K as well as the stamp set "Whats In your Tin 2" which is also designed by Melanie. I used blue and orange, Bronco colors on the border. For the earrings I stamped the Jersey from "Just So Sporty" on Shrinkie Dink paper with Black Stazon ink, a blue and orange Sharpee markers. *Note the orange did run a little, will have to try something else next time. After I cut them out and baked them according to the manufacturers instructions I coated the jerseys with Crystal Effects to protect them. I took some earring hooks and put them through the hole I punched before baking. Voila! When she takes the earrings out she can put a chapstick, bandaids or other little treasures in the tin to keep in her purse, hence the "on the go"
Now go on over to Melanie's blog to see what else I have created!
Tomorrow another Friday Card Flick. This week I made a card to match the earring set here today for my Mom.

Thanks for stopping by!

OMG Pam!!!! These are too freaking adorable!!! You're going old school with the old jerseys. LOL! DH has his ears pierced from back in the day. LMAO! I'll be expecting these in the mail. ROFL!! Great job!

Pssst, try to sand the shrinky dink with a sanding block before coloring to see if it will stop the "bleeding". Maybe?

Actually the shrinky dink paper I bought is pre-sanded. The orange marker was a BIC brand type of Sharpee, so maybe that is the problem! Bummer!
