Sunshiny DAY

Good Day! I am back to show you a Heartfelt Creation I made over at Amazing Crafting Products. I don't know how many times I've said it, but I truly LOVE the Amazing Crafting Products we get to play with over there. I've been so lucky to have gotten to be a part of such a great team leader and fellow designers. Daily I become more inspired and cannot wait to see what's next. 

So with that I made some Love Projects. I love decorating and celebrating Valentine's day and this is what I did back then. This year I decided on creating a suncatcher and a magnet to symbolize the day.

I started out with some Amazing Clear Cast Resin and both Alumilite Fluorescent "Flo" Red Dye and Alumilite Black Dye. Once I poured my mold I let it set up a little bit. Using a wooden skewer I dipped it into the red dye and gently dragged it through the resin in the mold. I did this a few times. Cleaning the skewer each time I dipped it back into the dye. I repeated the process with the black dye dragging it through the red and let it cure for 24 hours.

I love how some of the areas became almost feathery looking. Once it set up, I added a bit more of the  Amazing Clear Cast Resin the front of the "suncatcher" and let that dry. I added a ribbon and there it is...

For my second project I started with the Amazing Casting Resin,
which doesn't take but 5 to 10 minutes to set up. 

I painted it red right away. I've found if you paint your molded piece immediately, it takes the paint better. I just used regular red acrylic paint. 

Once the paint was completely dry I used my StazOn Jet Black ink pad
and inked up one of my favorite stamps and stamped the image directly onto the heart. 

Because I used StazOn I was able to add some Amazing Clear Cast Resin
to the top immediately to make it all nice and shiny. 

I added a magnet to the back and now I will always have
a beautiful remembrance of when Valentine's day is.

What kind of handmade crafts
did you making for Valentine's Day?

I hope I've inspired you to use some of these wonderful products and create your own suncatcher or magnet, or both.  Be sure to hear over to the Amazing Crafting Products blog later today and check or my project for this month.
If you have any questions please leave a comment below and I will get them answered as soon as possible.

As always, have a great day and God Bless.
