great gifts & a GIGANTIC SALE!


just in time for Mother's Day, 
graduations or any gift giving occasion...

kits for art are back in stock &
ON SALE...
with the discount code
each kit is less than $6.00...

we've had lots of requests for kits...
so we introduced 2 new "kits for art" at CHA in January...

 kits include complete instructions, step out photos, and the art parts & Blossom Bucket metal corners needed to complete the container...

this little cutie is called "create a container"...

the only thing you'll need to add is a flower center...


I like this kit because you can customize it to fit in with any decor...

choose any colors & any background stamps & it will be perfect!

the container can hang via the hole in the base, or it will sit on a shelf...

art parts work well with distress inks, distress stains, distress paints or you can cover the pieces with patterned paper...

for this sample I used distress stains...
jet black archival for my stamping...
and added an extra clearly for art flower...

I added the flower/leaves at the top, so this will sit on a shelf...



this next sample was done with the new distress paints...

I wanted this one to hang,
 so this time the flower/leaves are at the bottom 
& they can hang off the edge of the container...

the lines are this background stamp...
I just turned it 90 degrees to make the lines vertical...


here's another sample done with distress stains, 
the lines again...


if mom loves to quilt or sew...
here's another variation...

I saved the flower/leaves for another project & instead, I added the  Blossom Bucket sewing machine, spool, scissors & ruler...
this container will hold a small pair of scissors...



art parts are also awesome when embossed...

this time I stamped the stripes and 
the houndstooth with jet black archival, 
then clear embossed...

LOVE the bee...


the container was designed to hold a gift card or an assemblage...

you can see the opening below...


the opening is easily created by glueing 
the 3 art parts U shaped pieces together...
(they're in the kit...)

use any paper adhesive...
I like multi medium or glossy accents...


the second new kit is

this too contains instructions, step out photos, tim's mirrored material, that we die cut to make the perfect mirror...

you just need to add the flower center of your choice...


the instructions include how to use my black embossing paste to age the mirror & create a cool texture...

you'll also learn how to use alcohol ink to make an authentic looking old mirror...

this looks cute sitting on a dresser or vanity...
or you can also hang it...

don't forget to stamp the back too...




the embossing pastes are ON SALE TOO...



both kits work well with the daisy art  stamps...

the container uses the flower/leaves at the bottom & the mirror uses the daisy at the top left...

YES! 
it's ON SALE TOO!
