Guest Star Stamper Entry

Trinket tray

I made 2 projects for the Guest Star Stamper using the Little Lady Stamp set by PTI

The trinket tray was made from a CD case I baked it in the oven until it was soft enough to mould making sure I wore oven gloves to do this, once I had the shape I wanted I stamped the lady bug on the bottom of the tray on the outside, I cover the outside with a layer of voila glue and spinkled it with glitter then added a layer of crumpled tissue, then added some H2O colour and another layer of tissue and one more layer of the glue and allowed this to dry. Once dry I edged the tray with a gold permanant pen and tied a ribbon through a hole in the tray where one of the tabs used to be, I finished by adding a leaf and the baby size stamped little lady.


Below is shots taken at different angles the 1st showing a top view of the tinket tray and the 2nd showing it filled with a pearl jewelry set inside.

Just click on the images for a closer view.







Little Lady Spinner Card
The Lady Bug spins around the card until it gets to the flowers, it is mounted on 2 coins with foam pads between the coins these fit between the outer and innner circle of the apature. I wish I could show the spinning in action it is so cute.


Below is other shots taken to try to show you the movement in the ladybird spinner card
