For our Potluck Friday Challenge on Stamp TV this week, I would like you to incorporate a photo on your project! (I don't consider this a "scrapping challenge", because no journalling is required and there is no format for size. The intent is to think about how a great picture can be your focal point, (and perfect for cards you send, not just at the holidays!) Please upload your creation sometime this week to the STV gallery with the keyword STVPF25 for a chance to win!
NOW! Separate from THAT challenge, I also made a altered pencil can to match (so figured I 'd share it today!)...
...for Donna's August 3D Challenge on StampTV, this used to be can of beans! (Beans to be-autiful!) I don't how many cans we go through a week here, but I know I could always use more holders for my many stamping accessories, why go to the store for special containers when you have everything you need on hand?
I washed out the can (after taking the lid off with a can opener I got from Pampered Chef, it uncrimped the lid so you have a perfectly smooth, safe opening without a cut edge) and stamped the "Inspiration Mosaic" back to back on a piece of Pure Luxury, size will vary depending on your can. The bean can left room for the black mat (a Campbell's soup can is a perfect fit without the mat for the mosaic stamp leaving that nice 1/8 " border around.) TIP: Use a really "stay put" adhesive like Scor-Tape for the can rap and added photo so it doesn't peel up over time. I chose different sections for my gray shades, being sure to leave some white space, and then applied my photo in a spot where the different shapes would frame it nicely with an open space below it large enough to fit the "laughter" senitment (also from "Many Wishes").
