Morning everyone! I'm sneaking in an early post because we can now show you a new product that Crafty Secrets is debuting at CHA next week! Sandy came up with cool vintage postcard kits that you can create postcards with, or doorknob hangings, or mini albums, or garlands! The design team girlies have been busy all weekend creating postcards, so stop by and check them out on the Crafty Blog HERE! I'm amazed at the creativity that this design team cranks out~ every single one has unique and fun details!
I've been having so much fun playing with the kits & making samples for the trade show booth; I'll have more samples to show you all week! I lucked out and got a ton of the Halloween images (MY FAVE!) For this one, I cut out some of the typed words that came on the image sheets to add a sentiment to the front. The little wooden scrabble letters are old, but come on a sheet and are self-adhesive. I used them to spell 'eek' out on the front of my postcard. I also used silver pipecleaners for the handle on this hanging; I just wound 2 pipecleaners together and then spiraled them around my finger to get the corkscrews.
For this little hanging, I used some gold wired tinsel I had from Christmas trims, and added orange bows to the top. I also used Tim Holtz Linen crackle paint to paint the edges of the postcard, and sprinkled in a little black glitter for shimmer. I also used black glitter on the pompoms, and the cat's body. The kits come with little stamps that you can use to stamp the postcard back. All of the little chipboard embellishments come with the kit, like these little 2.cent stamp images hanging off the bottom. I hope you'll all be in Orlando next week, I'd LOVE to show these off to you in person! I'll have more of my creations this week, but in the meantime, make sure to stop by the Crafty Blog, as they are doing a give-away for postcard kits!
