Construction "Left overs" Continued

Here are a couple more of my "creations"

Autumn Blessings was made using some leftover lumber. First I sanded the edges to take off the sharp parts, then I painted with acrylic paint (beige)...then....I stamped!  Yes you know me "curious".  I decided I would try stamping.  I used the Fall Harvest stamp set, the Always Grateful stamp set, and the Urban alphabet stamp set. Can't remember what tree I used :(.  I used CTMH ink pads; Chocolate, gypsy, olive, autumn terracotta, sunset and barn red. After stamping I let it dry for awhile & then I heat set it. Then I inked the edges. Let it dry & heat set it.  I sealed it with a spray matte wood sealer. It turned out great. I Love It!

This is another leftover of base board.  Guess what I used on this.  A napkin from Wal-Mart. I decided to try decoupage the napkin because it was so pretty. I cut out some leaves with my cricut & did some embossing & inking to the leaves. Cut the tag on my cricut using olive & terracotta paper.  Used the Always Grateful stamp set, some burlap at the top & some strings from the burlap to attach to my tag. I used liquid glass to adhere everything.  I love the winkled look.
So far that's the end of my "leftover" creations.  Hope you find something you can recreate.  Feel free to post your "creations" in the comments section below.  Would love to see what you come up with.
