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 gift 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!
