Believe Shadow Box For Therm O Web

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by.  I wanted to share a shadow box with you that I made for Therm O Web's booth at Creativation 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona with Gina K. Designs brand new StampnFoil line of products and her new Dazzling Orange Fancy Foil (releasing March 2018).

Here's a ScrapTime video of Gina demoing her StampnFoil line at Creativation:

For my Believe shadow box I used Eileen Hull's new Book Club Trinket Box die and cut it from Gina's Vibrant Vines Foil Mates covered with Sweet Mango Fancy Foil.  The foiled design was then inked with Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters Distress inks.

The foiled and inked die cut was backed with Gina K. Designs Premium White Cardstock that I coloured with the same colours of Distress inks and stamped with a fine script stamp and Ground Espresso Distress Archival ink.  I used an old bracelet for my closure, taking the floral design links apart, colouring them with alcohol inks and then adhering them to the front and back of the shadow box with a brad.  A length of chain and a lobster claw clasp were used to attach the two link closures.

For the back of the shadow box, I inked a piece of Premium White cardstock with the same colours of Distress inks and then covered it with Deco Foil Transfer Gel.  Once the Transfer Gel had dried, I applied the negative design left over on the Sweet Mango Fancy Foil (from when I foiled the Vibrant Vines Foil Mate for the front and sides of the shadow box) and ran it through my laminator.

I used Gina's new Where Flowers Bloom and Butterfly Kisses StampnFoil sets, foiling the Detail Sheets with her new Dazzling Orange Fancy Foil and then stamping the foiled images with the Clear Stamps from the set using Distress inks.  The foiled and stamped images were then die cut with the coordinating dies from the StampnFoil system.

The small flower in the center was die cut from a scrap I had left over from the foiled paper I had used on the back of the shadow box, using one of the dies from the Where Flowers Bloom set.  Each of the die cuts was mounted onto some twisted wire and inserted into the top of the shadow box and the 'Believe' quote from Gina's Butterfly Kisses Clear Stamps was stamped onto inked cardstock, clear embossed and then edged with some Stickles Glitter glue.

The back panel on the inside of the shadow box was stamped with leaves and flowers from the Where Flowers Bloom Clear Stamp set.  One of Tim Holtz's Salvaged Dolls was coloured with alcohol inks and a set of wings from the Butterfly Kisses Detail Sheets was foiled with Dazzling Orange Fancy Foil and then inked.  I fussy cut these wings rather than die cutting them and adhered them to the back of the Salvaged Doll, curling the edges slightly to shape them.  More flowers and leaves from the Where Flowers Bloom StampnFoil system were foiled and/or stamped and die cut to place around the Salvaged Doll, along with some Bouquet Findings flowers that were coloured with alcohol inks.  The little butterfly fairy is standing on a bottle cap that was covered with some Design Tape.

Some buttons from my stash were added to the bottom so the shadow box would stand up straight, some Glitter glue was added around the inside and here and there on the die cut flowers and my Believe shadow box was complete.

A big thanks to Therm O Web for asking me to design some projects for their booth at Creativation this year (click here to see my notecard holder and cards that I also made for the booth), it was an honour to be asked and to have my creations on display, thank you so much for the opportunity.  I hope that you've enjoyed seeing what I made and that you will give Gina's StampnFoil line a try when it's released in March, the possibilities are endless!  Thanks as always for stopping by today and happy creating,
