AMAZING Inspiration from Susan M. Brown

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and all of the National Scrapbooking Day festivities. Susan here to bring you some creative inspiration today - because when I am creating with Amazing Crafting Products... the "SKY IS THE LIMIT"!

Even during my brief hiatus from this team, these products were a mainstay in my basic toolkit. I always keep a lookout for everyday things that can be transformed into something fun and creative.

When I get some creative inspiration...
I run with it - regardless of its origin.

Back on Valentine's Day I received a small gift bag of heart-shaped foil wrapped chocolates and a box of fun conversation hearts from my sweetie. Holy cow!!! I couldn't wait to break the hearts out of the box and turn them into a new piece of festive jewelry and the chocolate hearts would make perfect petals of a dimensional shamrock.

So with my chocolates, I arranged them into a shamrock shape; and the conversation hearts arranged into a circle to make a round pendant – both molded with Amazing Mold Putty and then cast in colored UTEE. Please click here to watch how I made the heart mold. For the heart pendant I brushed a few colors of Ranger alcohol inks into the mold which was transferred to the Ranger UTEE {ultra thick embossing enamel} when poured. For the shamrocks I added green mica pigment and emerald green color spray. And viola – two projects, each taking a little over an hour, both created from shaped candy. The shamrock adorns an altered glass block for seasonal holiday decor and I have a brand new necklace to wear for the spring season. You just gotta love this stuff!!

"Gumdrops of Love" Pendant

You won't believe what I did with my EASTER candy! I'd love to hear what fun things have inspired you to get creative with Amazing Crafting Products.
