"Carefree" and Epiphany!


Authentique Paper and Epiphany Crafts are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Epiphany Crafts products!

After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Epiphany Crafts blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today! 


********** 

Shellye here with a couple of projects combining the beauty of the two companies...what a treat!

First up is a super, super quick and easy project that literally took a few minutes to put together.  Now mind you, the bracelet is one that I all ready had...but it was plain, so what better way to dress it up than
with a cute little bauble!



To create the charm, I used Epiphany Round #14 Circle Punch, Charm and Bubble Cap
and a little "peek" of  an upcoming collection, "LIVELY," with the adorable bird motif.  Using a bit of jewelry wire, I looped the charm together along with a couple of spare mushroom caps and pearl from another old bracelet.  That's it!  Hangs just beautifully and is just the right amount of blingage!

Next is a card of Carefree enjoyment!
I love layering...I don't make a card that's flat, so you will notice that I've layered several different patterns from Carefree onto this card. I've used a scalloped punch, a circle punch and created a little pleating for the ribbon of paper that sits under the focal point.




After hand-cutting one of the Carefree butterflies, I embellished it and the sides with three of the Epiphany Bubble Caps that I applied to bits of patterned paper.  I use my sewing machine on almost everything, but I also added a hand-stitched X and two dashes in black to help establish that visual triangle that I'm so fond of.
