ESF Crackle - Coaster Pen Holder

ESF, Crackle, Chalk it up, Vishu's Creative Corner
Hello everybody! Today I am stopping by with this Coaster Pen Holder using ESF Crackle and Chalk it up paints. I had a lot of fun making this project and was pretty easy to put together too.

Products Used
So you need 5 coasters for this project. First I painted the Coasters with ESF Cherry Jubilee Chalk it up paint and then sponged 2 coats of ESF Crackle paint, you have to let the crackle layer dry before applying the next one. After the crackle paint was dry I added the chalk it up key lime pie paint and let it crackle. I then stamped an image using black ink.

Once my image was dry I painted the flowers in cherry jubilee and plum preserves.
Once that was dry i coated everying the ESF Acrylic Varnish. Then punched five holes on the sides the threaded with ribbon like a shoe lace. the bottom piece was hot glued.

So what do you all think and Thanks for stopping by..........

Another Faux Quilt Card

Hello All! looks like I cannot get enough of these faux quilted cards using Ann Butler Design Stamps. These stamps are just so perfect so without further chit chat here is the card I wanna share today.
I really liked the way this card turned out.

Products Used:

Ann Butler Crafter’s Ink by Clearsnap: Ocean Breeze, Canyon, limelight, Tangelo
Ann Butler 2″Faux Quilt Stamps by Unity Stamps
cardstock, glue, white embossing powder

First I stamped the faux quilt images on a white cardstock and then cut the image into 1/2″ strips

Now on a 4 by 5 inch cardstock I glued the strips horizontally and then again cut 1/2" strips on the 5" side. then on piece of 4 by 5 inch cardstock i staggered by strips came up with a quilted design.
Thanks for stopping by...........
