Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue….
For our new challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut, we want to see you link up a project that contains a bell, church or cross and incorporates the color blue. Religious or non-religious, all your Blue Bell inspired projects are welcomed!
For this challenge, I decided to make a bell ornament that could be given to a couple who may be celebrating there first Christmas together. This could also be a little unique something attached to the outside of gift bag or pretty package.
This bell actually is something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new.
Borrowed- Silver Glitter Spray from my crafty neighbor (which unfortunately, doesn’t show up in photo really well)
Blue- Blue ribbon along with blue flowers and font cut from Art Philosophy cartridge.
Old- Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I made this bell 3D, by cutting the ghost from PDDU, 12 times at 3 inches, scored down center, folded and then glued them all together.
New- My project of course and Tim Holtz Distressed Clear Crackle Paint.
I added a pearl on the bottom of the bell to look like the clapper (Ok- I did google “what is the swingy thing inside of bell called”…lol) cut a pennant tag to incorporate the year, embossed the tag with dots and applied Tim Holtz Distressed Clear Crackle paint over the tag for a little stability.
I liked my bell ornament so much that I decided to make another one for myself with the year I married my husband. Our wedding anniversary is actually next week….13 years-Yikes!
Thanks for looking and we look forward to seeing your Blue Bell inspired projects atFCCB.
