Jillibean Soup Projects – I Gave It A Try!
Hello all. How are things? It’s nice and sunny here which is cheering me up!
Today I have some projects to show you that I made for a Jillibean Soup Design Team Application. Unfortunately I did not make the team, but at least I get to share my projects here with you!
This page shows the damage to my lovely brown boots – and the shoes of my sister, niece, and daughter – when we’d been camping for a rainy few days. My boots never fully recovered! My favourite bit of this page is the multicoloured lights, which I made by masking off different parts of a Cold Avocado Soup stamp and using a variety of embossing powders:
What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’?:
I made this card using one of the Jillibean Soup Placemats, which I cut down for the front of my card. I used a stencil with some embossing paste and glitter to fill one circle with sparkly dots!
My Grandad Is Magic:
This photo is of my Grandad dressed as Dumbledore, for a Harry Potter themed birthday party that my friends threw for me last year (it was awesome!). I made the hat for him from grey felt, gold ribbon, and some bakers twine – it took me about 20 minutes – thank goodness for all the stash I can use for costume emergencies!
I had fun layering up the bits and pieces on this card, especially having the sentiment inside a frame – I rarely use frame embellishments for actual photos as they are so small, so I like to use them for sentiments, journaling, or embellishment clusters instead!
Gift Wrap and Tag:
I used some Cold Avocado Soup stamps on light brown packaging paper, stamping in blue and yellow acrylic paints (making sure to wash the stamps before the paint dried) and also sprinkling some glitter on while the paint was wet so it stuck to the image. Nice and sparkly!
Well, I tried my best, I will give it another go next year!
If you want to try out for a team don’t forget to check out the DTCalls.com site that I manage, I’ve just posted the calls that finish this week!
