Yeah! I get to stamp today! I have the whole day set aside…well, I may run to the store real quick, too. I’m also going to need to spend some time photographing cards! I’m running out of photos to show you! I know I’ve spent a lot of time creating them, just not the details of photographing!
I haven’t shared this with you before. I sent it in for a Stampin’ Up! monthly contest, but didn’t win…bummer! I’m disappointed because I thought it was very original. However, you just never know what competition you are facing when you send things in!
I made the little manly tool chest from two #2 Boxes die cuts from Real Red cardstock and adhered them together on top of each other. I ran the Brushed Silver cardstock thru the Big Shot with the diamond pattern Texturz plate and covered the front and back. I added small strips of black folded in half for the long drawer handles on the front. The sides, I took a silver Small Grommet and cut it in half, then placed it in the Basic Black cardstock along each side. I watercolored the tools and cut them out, randomly adhering them inside the tool box. I used an elongated Word Window for the words. You can’t see from these pictures, but the bottom has four Silver Jumbo Brads for the "feet".
Unfortunately, I sent the only one I had in for the contest, so I don’t have the measurements or anything. Leave me a comment and tell me what YOU think about this project!!! I thought it looked pretty realistic!
Reminder that the Control Freaks Tour de Freaks Blog Hop is coming up on August 20th! Mark your calendar so you can tour the 13 Blogs on that day! I know I always get AWESOME inspiration from these gals. I was happy that I got to meet up with several of them at Convention this year! Fun to put faces with names!
