Hydrangea Lawns Fussy Cut Layout!

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday! I have a brand new post today to share with all of you! 
I'm sure by now you all have tried the Gorgeous oh soo Beautiful paper pad by Dress my Craft- Hydrangea lawns! And the latest collection to the Hydrangea lawns collection are the Motif sheets! 
Such pretty coordinating images that you can fussy cut and add to your projects! 
I just love them! So I thought why not create something with them to Inspire you all! 
Here's a sneak peek of the project! You'll see the complete layout at the end of the post!

So without much ado lets get started!

I've taken this print from the paper pad trimmed it down a lil and adhered it to a white chipboard sheet. Next ligtly cover the base with clear gesso. This will protect the print and prime the surface so that one can use paints and sprays on top without the base print disappearing. 

Next I created the photo mats and fussy cut all the elements! See how beautiful they look! 

Here's a close up of some flowers!

They are soo Gorgeous! 

Next I've added the photo mats and a small fussy cut piece from the paper pad so it fills up all the gaps my fussy cut pcs will leave, I've also added some metallique wax to the base. The sheen is gives can only be seen in person! The camera doesn't capture it at all!

Next I've added some stone effect paste- Pumice to the base to create some texture!

Arranged and adhered all the die cuts! It looks so beautiful! And its so easy and quick!

Lastly for finishing touches I've used some watercolour paints, Glitter flakes and some more fussy cutting pieces from the Motif sheets! 

Hope you all enjoyed todays post! 
Please feel free to ask any questions!

Cuppa LOVE!

Helloo...Rupa here and on this Thursday I am sharing DIY home decor/utility project for your kitchen!
It's no surprise that I would be upcycling something and this time it's the empty liquor carton! I am always in awe of these packaging boxes, so sturdy and wonder always that if it can keep a bottle secure inside, it can pretty well keep anything else, what say???

...And so, I cut the carton in half and made it into this!

 I decided to make it Vintage and used my new Graphic 45 French Country Stack papers! I love the country style patterns in lovely fall colors and it has a vintage feel to it.

The papers speak for themselves! I inked them all with Walnut stain DI.
I chose 2 coordinating papers from the stack to cover the outside and for the inside used a green PP from DCWV.

The base and the lid was made using heavy chipboard and adhered some bottle caps here as feet. I painted them using chalk paints from Plaid(Imperial) and have inked the edges with Archival black ink.

Around the base is a lovely grass hedge. I have used IO dies for this. This gives a closed garden feel!

I have embellished the lid again in fall colors, (well, its bright and sunny here! I decided to pick the sun flowers from the PP and made them using CLD sunflower die. The leaves are using CLD tropical leaves set.

The cups are stamped on text paper using Hot off the Press stamps and the sentiment too. The cups along with the flowers lend warmth to this project and definitely cheers you up first thing in the morning when you reach out to make your tea...right???

As you turn the box around, I have clipped an Ideology paper clip using a brad. Some paper scraps with inked edges hang on the back side for those eureka moments after sipping your favorite cuppa! I din't want to waste any space in this box, lol!

As you open the lid, you can stack up the tea sachets and then pull them out one at a time, from the base! Why would you buy a dispenser when you can make one now to your taste...Cheers to that!

Well, that's as easy as it can get...I am an avid recycler and I urge you look around your house to see what you can work on!

I will see you soon with an another interesting diy.

Until my next creative journey,
Happy crafting and recycling.
