Idaho Custom Creations June Tiered Tray Kit & New Signs

It is time to reveal the June Tiered Tray kit and this month is 4th of July theme!
It was fun to only get out 3 colors for a change!


This month I am using my new risers instead of one of my tiered trays.  I really like these, they're beautiful and require a lot less fluff and filler.  I feel like I can see the pieces better.
The risers are from Felt Creative Home Goods (as are my trays) and can be found HERE.

The red, white and blue knitted hat is from Vin Van Knits and my marshmallow cups are this brand and out of stock, but these are similar. 
As a reminder, the kit comes unfinished and with everything you need to complete it, including paint.  It is a monthly subscription through Idaho Custom Creations.  Michelle owns the company, I just paint for her and enjoy all her products!
She offers the subscription kit as well as regular products for sale in her shop, and she takes custom orders. 

I often use my own paint so I can coordinate it with my home decor, and this month is no exception.  The kit will have red, white and blue paint in it, but I used my own.
I will link my colors here in case you want the exact same.

Deco Art Americana Brand
(It is a bright navy, it looks darker in the photos).
Believe it or not, I didn't antique the front of any of the pieces!  However, I did finish the backs and the stands with Folk Art Antiquing Wax.  I had to use it somewhere!


Pieces in the June kit.
Individual close up photos of each piece are below.







Two new Interchangeable Sign choices this month. 
Also available with this link is the starter kit in case you want to get a sign this month.


Double sided jar filler stars.  Stars on one side, stripes on the other.


This month's extra is a larger set of stars.  
Michelle has named them Star Leaners because you need to lean them again something so they stand up.  I glued my small star to the large star so now they are wide enough to stand up on their own.

My felt balls are from Etsy.  They are the 3cm larger balls and I purchased them from CutestLittleGarlands.

Artful Tulip Cards

Have you seen this new Paint Your World Collection from Spellbinders?  It's a big collection full of all things painting and art.  I've been having so much fun creating with it!


I mainly used the Artful Tulip Die set but I wanted to have two different paintbrush handles, so I used the handle that is in the Butterfly Burst Die set, another in this collection.  
I cut the flowers and leaves from Copic friendly cardstock and colored them completely with Copic markers.
The background is stenciled with the Bubble Bubble Stencil which apparently is now discontinued. 😡
I tied the paintbrushes together with twine before adhering them to the card.

Happy Birthday Cake Shaped Card

I love this card shaped like a slice of cake.  
There are so many ways to decorate it and it's just a fun card to send...and receive!

The die set comes with the candles and flame, frosting or whip cream and sprinkles.  The companion stamp set has those same things as stamps as well as different patterns for cake layers and this sentiment used here.


I stamped the cake layer patterns in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is embossed with black embossing powder.

The flowers and leaves are from the die set Whimsical Spring Flowers Dies.

The dots are my own and not included in this set.
