Simple Pleasures

 are teaming up over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration!
 Both companies are offering a sweet prize, so be sure to stop by and say "hi!"


 Oh boy do I love making some 3D projects!
I am definitely not a flat crafter so Therm O Web's 3D Foam Squares are a favorite friend of mine.
I was also very pleased with the outcome of their Gold Glitter Dust,
 which adds just the finest sprinkling of shimmer.  
For my project today I've combined pieces from the new Seasons: Summer collection, to create a little hanging for the door or wall.  Seasons: Summer is a petite collection and follow-up to Seasons: Winter and Spring.
To get started, I took a scallop chipboard sheet (from a Maya Road chipboard album set) and painted it in a warm yellow acrylic paint.  Next, I distressed the edges by dipping a sponge with ColorBox Mudslide ink and then wiping it across the edge.


 Shake the can of Glitter Dust well and then lightly spritz the chipboard.  I love that the sprinkles are random and not overly heavy...it's just right for a project such as this.

I used the larger 3D Foam Squares on the paper piecing, the round sticker, and the sentiment.  For the leaves and the small hexagon pieces, I used the small 3D Foam Squares. Yes, I believe in using a lot of foam!

Although you can't see it very well in the photos, I did lightly spray the hexagon cut-out shapes with the Glitter Dust before adhering them to the paper.


I like using a thin ZOTS for things like ribbon, bows and buttons...it sticks!

  Now it's all done and ready for hanging or gift-giving!
I also love to attach hangers like this to a plain grapevine wreath and hang on a door (covered and safe from the elements).  You will love Seasons: Summer...I can't wait for you to see it all!
