1  Re: 2019 Annual DeStashAlong! in Craftalongs by TheMistressT on: May 22, 2019 01:17:56 PM
Redheadwiththread, what a magical creature! Love the hair!

Delia and I made this box card for her papa (The ManFlesh) for Father's Day next month using all stash papers, ink, etc. I did have to buy the stamps. It has it's own thread on the Father's Day board.

Look! Green papers!

2  6-pack Box Card in Father's Day by TheMistressT on: May 21, 2019 08:16:51 AM

I got ahead of my game and helped Delia make her papa a Fathers' Day card!

I didn't rewatch the assembly video before stamping this banner piece and probably should have put it on the other side with the hand-written part on the back of the card. But Delia is not even 8 yet, so it's pretty good!

Because, you know how the kids like to suck up to their parents.

The cut files are from svgcuts.com. All the papers came from stash! YEY! I did pick up the Fathers' Day stamps, they came in set of 4.

Delia is pretty proud of the card, as you can see.

This taco truck box card I made for The ManFlesh is mostly stash, too! I did buy the metallic paper and the embossing folder I used to get the diamond plate texture.

4  Lavender-honey Cheese Cake in Dessert by TheMistressT on: May 15, 2019 09:47:25 AM

The ManFlesh's birthday is today and he's not much of a cake person, but he is a cheese cake person. So.

Purple is his favorite color, he likes lavender-flavored thing, and his aunt grew the lavender flowers that form the "e" on top!

You can tell by the crust's height that this is the first cheese cake I've made ever in my life! I did follow directions closely/literally, but should have stopped to have another look at the pictures in the recipe to understand what was meant.  Roll Eyes

I made a, "e" jpg in Photoshop, then uploaded it to the Cricut Design Space to cut the stencil for decorating the top.

5  Taco Truck Box Card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: May 14, 2019 10:09:13 AM

When I saw this project on svgcuts.com I knew I had to make it for The ManFlesh for his birthday!

Boy is it crammed with details! I spent a good hour and 45 minutes just cutting it. I bet I spent an hour choosing papers before that. Regardless, I hope you're sitting down, because I took A LOT of photos.

That wee taco is about 3/4" (<2cm) wide!

I used a Cuttlebug brand basket weave embossing folder to give this silver metallic paper the ol' diamond plate treatment and I love how it turned out SO MUCH. Eep!

I know I took a photo of the front, but h*ck if I can find it. But here it is going into the envelope.

6  "Tattooed" Wooden Hand in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by TheMistressT on: May 14, 2019 09:39:08 AM

The ManFlesh has a birthday coming up. He's a self-proclaimed Book Nerd.

Since his birthday is May 15, he refers to it as the Ides of May.

I did a wrap around bit to give a nod to his book writing.

And his initial on the inside wrist using a typewriter key-looking font.

Delia is always very curious about what we're up to, so I let her have a sniff after all the various chemicals has done their off-gassing. I did not try to pet her with it, but now I wish I had before I wrapped it.

To transfer the images to the hand I used laser printed images and Xylene. I wish the results had been a bit more consistent, but oh well! The knuck letters are my fave.

I don't know where exactly I stumbled up the inspiration pieces, but I restumbled upon them on my pinterest board set aside for gift ideas for the aforementioned The ManFlesh. The originals are sooooo cool. They are hand-painted and original art! They are in an etsy store, ahem.

I made this matryoshka doll card for my mom for Mothers Day. The files came from the Cricut Design Space, I added the dotted texture using my Sizzix Big Shot.

I took photos before I bought a "Happy Mothers Day" stamp, which I accidentally stamped upside down! Luckily, Mom found that part especially charming.  Kiss

Oh, boy! I actually accomplished some of the challenges for May! I think green and floral (well, leafy)!

A friend had this great vintage bark cloth as a curtain over a storage niche in her bathroom. I noticed that it wasn't really hemmed or seamed other than the original hem which she was using as a channel for the tension rod that holds it up. So I offered to do the sewing for her. When I got it home, I decided there would be less coverage loss if I used some  curtain lining I stash to line it. This also meant that it could now be hung with the pattern right side up. YEY! I did it over the last week and took it to her this morning. It hangs so nicely now and won't fray away.

I was able to set up my machine to make a couple quick collar cozies for Delia! Jo-Ann had a 70% fat quarters sale, so I picked up four of them to update her springtime lewk!  Cheesy

The back of the green leopard print has bone & heart shaped dog biscuits in watercolor rainbow colors on a black background.
