Home Decor Sweet Home

Get them now while they last.  The Decor Elements from Stampin' Up! are available until the end of May.  I have totally enjoyed creating home decor projects with the Decor Elements and will miss the line in the new catalog, but I am totally looking forward crafting with whatever SU! has coming!


This sweet sign was made with the Decor Element from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  While it's too late to get one of these cool vinyl pieces, you may have got one during SAB that you have not done anything with as of yet.  For mine I first painted a canvas with a soft red paint mixed with clear glaze.  I intentionally wanted brush strokes through the paint so I used a foam brush and worked the paint in one direction across the canvas.


Once the paint was totally dry I added the Decor Element.  The design also included a simple curled flourish on the bottom, but I cut it off so the sign would better fit my canvas.  Rubbing vinyl on a canvas can be tricky.  I find a hard cover book just the right thickness to fit under the framework of the canvas.  Then I rub the Decor Element very thoroughly and peel back the cover/transfer paper slowly.  To finish my canvas I lightly stenciled Smooch Paint and added a few jumbo pink bits of bling from the Blossom Builder kit.


Happy craftin, Elizabeth
