Deflecto Finale


Hello! Today is the finale of the Deflecto and Stampendous Hop! Deflecto shared some amazing products with the Stampendous team, and I know that we have all been very excited to share our creations with you. There are prizes to win from both Deflecto and Stampendous, so be sure to stop by their blogs to get all of the details. Today's project from me features the Rotating Carousel Craft Organizer.

This is such a great product. I love how many different containers are in one, small area, and that it's on a Lazy Susan. I also love that it's clear. So when I found out I was going to be decorating this piece, I knew I didn't want to lose the fact that I could see what was inside each of the triangles.

Our theme this week is Spring, so I decided to work with the Cling Daisy Mix Stamps and Dies sets. Then I had to decide what to stamp these daisies on....again, I wanted to try to maintain the clarity of the carousel, so  broke out some Vertigo from Imagine Crafts. I used Rattlesnake because I like the varied pattern in the sheet. This is what the original sheet looks like:

It has nice, reflective qualities, plus it's translucent. And I knew my daisies would look really cool. So I stamped the daisies with StazOn, and then used the coordinating die to cut them out. I ran them through my Big Shot twice, because the Vertigo didn't cut all the way through in one pass. Then, I played with some color.


I used some Encore Ultimate Metallic inks, along with Delicatas, as they both stick well to the Vertigo. I colored the side that I did not use the StazOn, so that the black outline was still clear when I mounted the pieces on to the plastic. I applied the ink directly from the pads. 


Since I will be using this piece for organization, I didn't want to put too much on each container. I like the random look I got from using the different daisies and leaves too. Gluing was something I needed to experiment with, but I finally found that Beacon Adhesive's 3 in 1 glue worked great! It is totally clear, dries quick, and holds on to the plastic really well.


They look so pretty when the light hits them, and the effect the vertigo gives is really cool. It's tough to photograph!


And here is the carousel filled with some of my crafty goodies. I can easily see what's inside, but it's not so utilitarian because of the flowers. Thank you so much to Deflecto, for providing the Stampendous team with such amazing products. Below are the folks that have projects to share with you today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Oh yes!! I definitely need a few of these Carousel Rotating Craft Storage pieces!! So many things to wrangle into shape and these will be the perfect way to do it!!
I never thought to use the Vertigo film to make flowers! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration!
That is definitely a cool effect. I love that they are translucent so you can see through them. Of course I went opaque on my organizer, tee-hee.

Such fun and I love flowers.
Mary Holshouser said…
Just a little goes a long way - you don't need
to fill in the entire front. And it will
be easier to see what is inside.
I love these canisters.
Have them on my shopping list.
thanks for sharing such pretty flowers.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
