DIY Shabby Chic Altered Metal Envelope

I was given a set of Home Décor undecorated metal envelopes and immediately knew I wanted to make it into some kind of romantic, shabby chic piece for the month of February, since we all know it is the month of love! I wanted the piece to be warm, inviting, and full of textures. I had seen several versions of handmade fabric envelopes with stuffed fabric hearts on Pinterest and that was the inspiration that I drew from in creating my own version of a "Love Letter"!  I used 3 layers of chipboard hearts (instead of stuffing) covered with textured fabrics for my two largest hearts and for my center heart, I used a Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Lacy Heart Frame. I simply adore the scalloped border and its design allowed me to shape it a little to give it a 3-D effect. I loved the heart so much, I used it again in a smaller size on the envelope itself! I also used a few other of my Reneabouquet Beautiful Board favorites such as, the Quilling Flourishes (located on the larger cream heart), the Cherry Blossom Branches (located on the envelope base to the right side) and an art piece would not be complete without the Decorative Clock Hands! And these are just a few of my favorites on this piece! Who wouldn't love the Beautiful Board Love Locks and Key set hanging off the bow that is attached to the Lacy Heart Frame?   Did you also notice the super teeny tiny Beautiful Board Beautiful Bits Tiny Hearts scattered above the "I" in Bliss? There are several other quality products used in this project...I will list them with links below my You Tube Video which shows this entire project from start to finish.  Before you finish peeking at all the photos....take notice of the exquisite Reneabouquets Tiny Treasures Butterfly (called Ruby Slippers)...doesn't it add the perfect touch?

Reneabouquets Beeutiful You Mixed Media Card

Hello crafty friends! I have a mixed media card to share with you today. It's made with Reneabouquets items, starting with the Blue Fern Wanderlust Paper Collection.
Blue Fern has the pretties papers!

After cutting and sizing the Blue Fern Wanderlust Papers, I distressed the edges and then inked them with Tim Holtz distress ink.

I have been wanting to work with these Queen Bee with Glass Wings since Renea put them in the store. I am so excited to finally have the chance.

These Queen Bee with Glass Wings have so much detail. I love the added touch of glitter.

Reneabouquets has the perfect embellishments to go with the Queen Bees. The Beautiful Board Medium Honey Bee Chipboard is gorgeous. I colored it with distress inks and distress markers. I also added Beautiful Board Beautiful Bits Mini Bee Hive to the card. 

The sentiment is a stamp that I have in my stash. It fit the theme of my card perfectly.

I used the Honey Curly Roses Mulberry Paper Flower Set from Reneabouquets for the flower arrangements. 

I made the honey from a mixture of Glossy Accents, and yellow and brown acrylic paint. I used a toothpick to put drops all over the card.

Thank you for popping in for a visit. Hope you have a craftastic day!

Reneabouquets Ice Fairy - Warrior 3D project (A tribute to Warriors)

Hi crafty Friends!

I am excited to share this project with you.  It's something different and it was a concept that changed a few times before it came to be what you see here.   But once I saw Renea's Ice Fairy I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

 Renea's Ice Fairy, and her amazing strong warrior look inspired me to make this into a tribute to everyday warriors.  The strong warrior inside us all that step's up to do the hard things that need to be done.    
I have made a banner using a part of a quote I found on the internet  the entire quote reads...
Fate says to the warrior "You cannot with stand the storm".
The warrior whispers back "I am the storm" 
-   Jake Remington

 Renea also created Ice Fairy Butterflies!
I started with the trees. I twisted wire for several  Then I painted and glittered them with Reneabouquets Diamond  shard glitter.

 There is quilt batting and Spun glass angel hair inside for snow.  Also I glittered some Dusty Blue mulberry Roses. and put them inside. I sprinkled Silver Shard glitter on them.
This is Reneabouquets Haunted Castle Chipboard.  I painted it icy blue colors.  I ran thin beads of hot glue up the front for icy texture.  Then gave it a spritz with dylusions ink spray - white linen.  I backed the whole piece with velum so it looked like Icy windows. 

I accented with some acrylic Christmas icicles.  In this picture you can see some Reneabouquets Vintage snowflake beautiful board chipboard in there too.
The spiky white pieces at the front are cones I rolled from white paper.  They have been glittered too. 

 I lit it all up with a battery operated string of led fairy lights.  I created a space for the battery pack when I created the cardboard base.  I strategically placed some of the tiny fairy lights on the string under the acrylic icicles because they magically enhance the acrylic, it carrys the light right up through their centers.  Finished it all off with Reneabouquets Beautiful Bows Lace, Ivory Pleated Tulle and a garland of miniature acrylic icicles. (click the picture to enlarge)
There she is.  The Ice Warrior.
A reminder to embrace the warrior within.
Determined, Strong, Powerful.   There's nothing she can't handle. 
Just like the coldest and fiercest winter storm. 
Stand with her and your world will fill with unexpected beauty.

I'm "In Love" with this piece.  I keep stopping to look at it every time I pass by it. 
Thank you so much for stopping by to look! ❤️
