Hi there CE fans, today I have a fun project using the new laser cut mirror acrylic stars in pink along with some chippies of course. Let me introduce you to Mdme Fairbanks, she is my nod to all things pink (I’m not a “pink” kinda gal) but you know, with poodles you have to have a little pink in your life! I made a very pink box and embellished it with chipboard and acrylic stars.
I diecut the box with Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix gift box die. Before diecutting I covered the matboard with pink card stock. Then I cut 5 panels, 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, of white mixed media paper and embossed them with the 3-D Kaleidoscope embossing folder. Next I inked the paper with several pink tone Distress Oxide inks. And because more is always better to me I decided that a bit of embossing powder would add to the mixed media mayhem I was creating! Sooo, I ramdomly sprinkled on a bit of embossing powder, using mostly white for some contrast. After I was satisfied with the panels I adhered them to the sides and top of the box.
On the front side of the box I’ve used a grunge star corner chipboard piece from Creative Embellishments and wrapped it around to the side. I painted it with Dylusions Bubblegum Pink paint and then added clear glass embossing powder. The star on the top of the box is also a grunge star corner but I cut it into pieces.
Creative Embellishments has added a great product to their lineup, laser cut acrylic mirrored stars. I topped the two grunge star corners with acrylic stars and added others all around the box.
For a final touch, I splashed some white paint all over the box. I needed a little something extra ’cause flowers just didn’t work! 😊
