Fire and Ice Blog Hop

This hop is based on the famous poem "Fire and Ice" by Robert Frost. Even though the poem is of the humankind's demise, Jearise, our hostess, still loves it. She says every time she hears the title she thinks of blues and reds so she thought why not have a blog hop based on those colors?

Our wonderful crafters have created projects using either shades of red or shades of blue or they have jumped right in and combined the two colors. You'll have to hop along to see which way they went. Don't you just love playing the guessing game while hopping.

Jearise in Lorby's World, who is our hostess, will have blog candy so make sure you start hopping from her blog so you know how to qualify.

I chose to use Blue and white on my projects. 

I made two 6" x 6" mini Scrapbook pages. The flowers are punched out using 3 different sizes Recollections daisy punches.

The first page I used papers by Georgia Pacific- white and blue, Recollections medium and dark blue, and print, Stampin Up blue-green.
The Second page I used papers by Georgia Pacific- white and small blue flower, Recollections- the medium and dark blue. The print is by DCWV.

The pearls are From Miriam's Crafting supplies. You can find her store here- https://www.facebook.com/MiriamsCraftingSupplies

The journal lines and vine for flowers are done using blue Gelly Roll pen.

I curled the flowers before putting them together. I used Scothch Quick dry glue to put the flowers together. a pop dot to attach the pearls.

The second page I added iridescent glitter to the flowers.


Now please continue on to Lucy


In this blog hop you will create anything that has shades of blue or shades of red.

Robyn's Fetish Challenge #145 must have 3 hearts


   Hello, Today at Robyn's Fetish our challenge is to have 3  hearts on our project not counting the digi. Robyn's Fetish is the sponsor of our challenge today. I am using "Pretty Flowers" by Robyn's Fetish. The winner gets their choice of 3 digital images from the Robyn's Fetish store. You can find the store here http://robynsfetish.com/

   Copics used are RV00, RV02, RV04, RV09- pinks, BV00, BV02, BV04, BV08- purples, Y13, Y17- center of flowers, YG01, Yg06, G07- leaves, G07- stems.

   The hearts are punched out using Martha Steward Heart Confetti punch. Once punched out I added glitter glue to the hearts and the center of the flowers.

   The sentiment is by Clear Dollar Stamps.

   The ribbon is by Paper Temptress.

   The tissue paper around the flowers is some white I had salvaged from being thrown away at Christmas. I straighten it out as much as possible. Then folded it so i could cut out 4 four inch circles. Next i took 2 circles and folded them in half then did the same with the other 2. You should have 2 half circles. I placed them on a piece of white cardstock. I then spritzed the half circles with Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist- kiwi. When dry turn over and spray with English Ivy Glimmer Mist. It will bleed through some. that is okay. When dry fold to a cone shape loosely.Undo add adhesive to the inside. place a layer of the tissue circle above the back a little like it would appear wrapped around the back of a bouquet. now add the flowers with glue on the stems to hold in place. Now wrap all the half circles back up into a cone. Tie the bottom with a tiny ribbon. You have your bouquet for your card or project.

   The trim on my bouquet is the top strip of another piece of the ribbon I used on my card. I tied it and then separated the threads. I then glued a heart to the center of the bow.

   I pop dotted the purple flowers up.

  The papers are by DCWV- shimmer purple, Bazzill- lavender, Georgia Pacific- white.

   The card is 4 1/4' x 5 1/2".

   Thanks for dropping by. Flowers are better shared with a friend. Edwina

Robyn's Fetish Guest tutorial ,Explosion Box


        Hello, Today I am doing a guest spot tutorial on Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog. You can find the blog here http://robynsfetishchallengeblog.blogspot.com/  come join us every other week on Friday as Sue and guests share how to make special items.  
      
                         How to make an Explosion Box

      Supplies Needed:
       Cardstock, printed paper, adhesive, Copics or other coloring medium, Scoring board of choice, scissors, Embellishments of choice, Adhesive permanent runner, Scotch Quick Dry Glue

Chose 8 digis and a sentiment or 9 digis. Make them 3 ¼” high and no wider. I am using Robyn's Fetish digis Bee Mine, Flower and Hearts, It’s Bearly Love, I Have a Crush on You, Bunny With Parasol, Tommy Valentines Toad, Tilly Valentines Toad, Love Bear. You can find these in the Robyn's Fetish store here http://robynsfetish.com/  Print them off on white cardstock.

                       Color with your choice of medium. I used Copic markers.

                         Cut out the images. Set them aside while you make the box.


Score a 12” x 12” piece of  cardstock on the 4” and 8” score lines on both sides. Do not use the thinner papers for this. The heavier the cardstock the better. I used an ivory piece of Recollections. Bazzill would be better as it is heavier.


                 Cut along the score lines 4”.As shown in the photo. To cut out the corners.

                                                  You will be left with this

Now cut a piece of cardstock to 5 1/8” x 5 1/8” Score at ½” on all 4 sides.

Cut to make flaps on each end as shown. Cut notches so the corners fit together easier. Do that by cutting at an angle to form a triangle shape . See in the photo.

Fold alone the score lines and glue the corners together using a strong glue. I used Scotch Quick Dry Glue.

Now cut ten 3 ¾’ x 3 ¾” squares of  cardstock-(I used red) and ten 3 12’ x 3 ½” squares of designer paper-(prints) These are for each section of the box and top of the lid. I used 2 Recollections 6” x 6’pads With Love, and Love

Glue digis and sentiment on the 3 ½’ squares. Then glue the 31/2” squares to the red squares

Glue squares onto the box and lid. Decorate with embellishments as desired. Finish folding the box and put your box lid on it.  
                                                            Inside of box.                                                    

                                                            Outside of box.

                                                                 Lid of box.


I used gems by Recollections. The Be Mine ribbon is The Valentine collection from Michales Celebrate It.
   
The Explosion box can be for a small gift if you desire. Place it inside a sturdier box to gift wrap. It can also be used as a decoration or even as a card.

I am entering this in the 3 Girl Jam 3-D Valentine challenge here http://3girljamchallenge.blogspot.com/

   I hope you enjoyed mt tutorial and will give this a try. Have a very happy day. Edwina
