Welcome Back

Today I would like to share with you some long overdue pictures of the Jacobs Ladder I made.

Here's the box I made for the ladder

Here is the box I made for the Jacob's Ladder

For anyone who would like to make their own version of a Jacob’s Ladder, the instructions I used to make this the first time were on TV Weekly. If you make the basic construction without the pictures in place it is fairly easy to put together. However the first few you make you are likely to want to wait till the family is at school or work, so you are not disturbed as you put it together ;)
Here are the long awaited pictures of my Jacob’s Ladder.

Here is the Ladder in the box

The pictures have come out much bluer than expected, the label is purple as is the tissue in the box! I made the box too ;) Well after all the work for the ladder, it needed a good looking box to store and display it.

Side one is all birds side two is floral themed.

These pictures make it look much bluer than it is in real life, it is blue (Stonewashed) and hot pink (Wild Plum) on one side and the floral side is blue (Stonewashed) and purple (Eggplant).
I used Rangers Adirondack dye inks applied using Ranger’s Cut n Dry foam. The stamps I used were from Crafty Individuals. For my ladder I sponged a background on to the mount board, I then edged the boards in silver metallic marker. 

I made life difficult for myself by attaching the stamped pieces to the mount board BEFORE I had assembled the ladder.  This meant that I couldn’t just put the boards together in any order as one side has a bird theme and the other has a different colour way and a floral theme.  After many attempts at assembly my dear husband came and had a look and between us we worked out what order and which way round the boards should be assembled to get the finished ladder to flow properly! Not for the novice! Assemble the boards and put your pictures/stamping in afterwards for a simpler and quicker finish.

If you join up to the site you can also download instructions, which is REALLY handy for the first couple of times you make a ladder.

Here is my Artist Trading Card that I made for August’s swap over on Stamping Mad Forum. The theme was Nature.

 

'Nature'

I used Katzelkraft rubber stamps from their Floral plate, Crafty Individuals stamps for the swirls and crackles, Ranger Adirondack dye inks, and Perfect pearls sprayed on using a mini Mister spray.

 

Best wishes and thanks for reading
