Awesome job!   I'm so jealous.   Stitch is my fave Disney character.

14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Papercuttings (IMG Heavyish) on: May 28, 2012 10:22:19 PM
I made a couple of things recently and wanted to show them off!

I made this girl/deer papercutting for sweetyetevil in the 4x6 Rd. 2 swap.   I used a template from http://papercutting.blogspot.com/ and altered it slightly since I am a novice at papercutting.   The entire piece is only 4x6, so the girl is small!    Cheesy   I'm kind of proud of it, since I had never attempted to paper cut before signing up for the swap.  I went through several practice pieces before this finished piece. 



You can't really tell in the photo, but the solid colored papers have a metallic sheen to them.  I layered all three papers you see on some cardstock and inked the edges to give it an aged look.

Also, I made this castle as a practice piece.  I used a template from this site:  http://www.papercutters.info/SA/Galleries/index.php?dir=./Back%20Street%20Designs%20Pattern%20Books and cut it out of a pattered paper in a creamy yellowish color. 



The castle hasn't been mounted on anything yet.   Everything was cut using Xacto knives and fine tipped paper scissors.   

C+C is more than welcome and encouraged!
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Gir Hoop! (IMG Heavyish) on: May 28, 2012 10:07:40 PM
I made this for my sister's birthday in April.   

Its Gir!   He is a favorite of hers.   Basically, I found a coloring page of him online, re-sized it, used my light box to trace the image onto white fabric, and stitched away.   He was a pretty quick stitch-up, about 4 hours or so.   



Closer.



This is how I finished the back.   I used a running stitch along the edge of the excess fabric and pulled it all in on itself.   Basically, it looked like a rosette inside the hoop.   Then I used some Aileen's fabric glue and smeared it on the edge of the "rosette" and hoop.  While the glue was still wet, I dropped the hoop backside down on some hounds tooth scrapbooking paper.  After the glue dried, I trimmed off the excess paper and viola!   All done! 

 


Oh, I also pained the hoop with a sharpie paint marker and added a lime green glittery ribbon to the edge. 

As always, C+C is welcome and encouraged!
