Hey bloggers...this is my month to guest design for Just Imagine Crafts and Kreaxions Punches. They have a fabulous line of 4 in 1 punches along with other cool tools for papercrafting.
With Father's Day just around the corner, I thought an altered project for dad was in order. I also wanted to show the versatility of the Just Imagine Kreaxion punches. So here is a fun beach chair gift!
I started with an unfinished wooden beach chair and gave it a coat of Gesso to seal the wood.
Then I gave it a coat of Nautical Blue to go along with the beach theme.
Using the Kreaxion's Punch #310 with the A plate, I made a border stencil. I found that if I lined up the flourish edge of the previous punched outline with the edge of the A plate, the spacing was perfect.
Next, I placed the stencil across the front of the chair. I used white acrylic paint and stenciled the punched design on the chair.
After the acrylic paint dried, I added some detail using a Zig marker.
A beach umbrella was the next accessory to go along with the chair. I found some fun MME paper in my stash and cut the pieces for the hood of the umbrella. Next, I punched each of the pieces with the Kreaxions #310 punch without any plates.
I cut an umbrella hood from Bazzill Bling and added the patterned pieces. To make the punched image pop, I added orange cardstock under it. Then I used the Zig marker again for some faux stitching and added a Queen & Co candy dot at the top.
A printed seat cover, some ornamental seashells and a "Happy Father's Day" sign to hang over the back, complete the chair!
Here's my completed project including an "Ocean's of Love" card to go along with it. I use the Kreaxion's #310 punch on the corner of the Rogue Redhead Design stamped image to represent the water current.
I hope I have inspired you to try these amazing punches on your cards and projects!
