Mini Canvas Pictures

Hello there! I’m excited to show you my latest project for Ewe-N-Me Printables. It’s so much fun to try out new projects and today I’ll be featuring little canvas pictures using Ewe-N-Me Printables Collage Sheet –Roses

This lovely downloadable includes 6 different images of gorgeous vintage roses, in two different sizes, for a total of 12 printable images.

Today I'm using four of the small sizes that measure 1.5 x 2.5.

This project was very easy and lots of fun. I used four mini canvases (2.5 x 3.5) and painted them with pastel pink and celery acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I embellished the canvases with scraps of ribbon and burlap. I cut out the 4 rose images I wanted to use and adhered them to the canvas. To finish, I added pearls and decorative beads. 

So simple! And so lovely!

There are so many creative possibilities with the variety of downloadable collage sheets and these little canvases. They are so sweet and make a nice addition to any rustic or vintage home d├ęcor. They really look great on a little easel or bookshelf!

I've found a home for mine on a table next to an antique wooden box.

Have fun and try out this project! So glad you stopped by today!

Birthday Card with Matching Gift Tag

Hello again everyone!

My post today features the Altered Cupcakes Hang Tags from Ewe-N-Me Printables that are SO cute and colorful. I thought they would be perfect for a child's birthday so I created both a birthday card and matching gift tag.

With these printables you will get 6 tags (three different images).

After printing the page of tags, I cut out two of the same images. I used pink card stock and brown ink that coordinated perfectly with the tags I selected.

The card features Happy Birthday stamped in brown ink, a chip board piece also edged in brown ink and strip of colorful rickrack. The rickrack was a perfect embellishment because it matches the image on the tag. Before I adhered the tag to the card, I tied a piece of twine through the top added a sparkly gemstone to the to top of the cupcake. These embellishments really add a festive flair!

For the gift tag I glued it to piece of of the same pink card stock that I used on the card. I punched a hole at the top of the tag and tied a piece of twine through it. As I did with the card, I added a gemstone and tiny pearls. I think it makes a fun presentation!

There are so many possibilities with hang tags and I hope you enjoyed the idea I showed you today. For more great hang tags from Ewe-N-Me Printables be sure to visit here.

See you soon.

Pretty Kitty Cards

Hello again and happy July!  Summer is moving along so quickly and I hope everyone is having fun. And, speaking of -- I had so much fun creating these cards!!.

This adorable image is from Ewe-N-Printables Instant Download - French Country Pretty Kitty. This darling feline has such a sweet face and is featured atop a French script background. The vintage French look is so popular right now and a look I’ve really taken to.

I downloaded and printed two images – one with a white background and the other with an aged background. I adhered both to a chocolate brown panel which I then attached to an ivory card. I like the brown background because it really makes this image pop and it’s not as harsh as black.

In keeping with the French theme, I hand stamped “Mon Amie” on a paper scrap and placed it slightly off center. I added black buttons and a black and white gingham ribbon which add both a charming touch and country flair.

My final touch was to add the blue gemstones – I like them because they are playful and bring out the blue in kitty’s collar!

Be sure to check out more downloadable images at Ewe-N-Me Printables. Have some fun!!

Thanks for visiting – please stop by again soon.
