Stampin' Up Celebrate Today Slate Heart Gift

























Hey everyone, hope you are well! I am here with a present I made for my uncle's special birthday-and after visiting today I was very pleased to see it has pride of place in their lounge!
I used a real slate heart and stampin' up stamp which I embossed with white embossing powder. A very simple but effective way to decorate plain slate-although it does get hot so careful not to touch for a while!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

  4. What an absolutely clever idea for a gift! I would've never in a million years thought to stamp and emboss onto slate! But I love the way the sentiment pops and how the slate has that wonderful rough-hewn look. This would make a perfect gift for so many different occasions and it definitely deserves that place of honor in your uncle's lounge! Thanks for sharing your inspiring creation with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
