Epiphany Inspirations

Hello Bloggers!
Have you been keeping up with the Olympics?! I watched the Opening Ceremonies on Friday, and was blown away! What's your favorite event to watch? Mine is definitely gymnastics!

Well, now on a more crafty note, I am so pumped to share with you these Epiphany inspirations! I love seeing Epiphany products in projects because it always surprises me how many ways they can be used! Check them out-

Don't you love this technique from Jennifer Priest? Here's her instructions on how to recreate this: "The oval tool has a nice slim profile, making it fun to create a pseudo masked or window effect on cards. Stamp an image onto a blank card front. Then stamp the same image onto scraps of paper. Use the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio to create embellishments from parts of the colored image and then apply to the card front, matching them up to the plain stamped image on the card. This technique will work with any Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio but the oval is well-suited for narrow images."
Recreate this card:
 

How fun is this card?! I love adding in the glasses to accent the "seeing" aspect of the sentiment! Thienly Azim created this beauty!
Be Inspired:

Look at this pretty bloom from Sarah Hill! I would totally attach this to a stretchy headband or bobby-pin and wear in my hair! Show off the summer vibes!
Recreate:


These are so adorable and CUTE! I definitely think I know a few people who would squeal over seeing these are center pieces, or even strung together into a garland! We can thank Andrea Budjack for these photos of her creations!

  2. These projects are fascinating - I want to go back and look at them again! Even though I don't really care about sports, I love the Olympics and watched the swimming, biking, and gymnastics!!! Our athletes are doing beautifully and I am proud of all the athletes as they come together to compete and make new friends too!

  8. I love these ideas here and the Epiphany Craft, they have some cool stuff there, that´s for sure. I admit, I don´t like much sport, but have to see the ladies handball, as we have some of the best players in the world, and they have won sooo many championchips over the years, that you just have to watch, if you have just the slightest nationality feeeling LOL.
