Tool Extravaganza - Rhonda


Rhonda Van Ginkel is sharing her work with us today.
She used the d-stress tool on her fabulous projects.
For my first project, I used a plaque as the inspiration for my project. If you look at the design of it closely, you'll notice the inverted bevel edge makes creating the perfect cover for it a little tricky. What to do? I put the d-Stress tool to work for me!

I coated the top of the sign with a layer of Modge Podge, then applied a trimmed rectangle piece of Bon Voyage paper on top (right side up). Once I smoothed it out and allowed to dry a bit I then used my sanding tip to sand off the paper for the perfect custom fit!

Ingredients:
Bon Voyage Papers, Sticker Stackers and Die Cuts
Sign, KaiserCraft
Liquid Glue, Modge Podge
Chipboard Alphas, Colorbok
Inks, PowderPuff Chalk Inks, Quick Quotes
Diamond Stickles, Ranger


Project #2 is a layout inspired by Diana's awesome sketch for this month's challenge! I love the Hello Cupcake line and had the perfect Core'dinations cardstock that coordinates with the colors in the line.

Using that as my background paper, I debossed some lines into the cardstock using my scoreboard, my d-Stress tool and etching tip. You don't want to press hard for this technique, just let the tool guide you slowly to gently touch the top of the cardstock.

I then switched tips to my white sanding tip and ran it along the outside edges of my page. Finishing touches were some gem accents on my balloon, the cherry in the Happy Birthday chipboard and along the left edge and my circle using the template.

Ingredients:
Hello Cupcake pattern papers, sticker stackers and die cuts, Imaginisce
d-Stress Tool, Imaginisce
i-Rock, Imaginisce
i-Rock Frames Stencil, Imaginisce
Hot Rocks Compact - Crystal, Imaginisce
Hot Rocks Compact - Jewel, Imaginisce
Foam Tape, Imaginisce
Cardstock, Core'dinations
Black Cardstock, American Crafts
Round "seven" diecut, Jillibean Soup
PowderPuff Chalk Inks, Quick Quotes
Smooch Spritz
Twine, The Twinery
Other: Sewing Machine, Thread and Ribbon

I hope I've inspired you with a few different ways to use your d-Stress tool. I absolutely love it for my mini albums and altered projects!!!

Thanks!
