Mini Album with Ruler Binding

Mixed Media Patterned Paper abd Fabric Mini Album with Ruler Binding

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a mixed media mini album that I put together. I usually struggle with album binding, so this Tim Holtz Ruler Binding set was a quick and easy way for me to hold my album together. The only tool necessary was a standard hole punch. (The metal screws, washers, and wing nuts are included with the rulers.)

Patterned Paper and Fabric Scraps Cut to Size for a Mini Album

I started this album by cutting up pieces of scrap patterned papers, clip art sheets, acetate, and fabric, to measure 3.25 x 5 inches. To add strength to the album, and to help keep the paper pages from tearing, I used acetate for the front and back covers.

Colorful Mixed Media Mini Album Pages with Stamping and Embellishments

I'm still working on embellishing all the pages in this album. I added handwritten song lyrics, stamping, chipboard stickers, and words cut from patterned papers, to the pages shown above. The fabric pages add fun texture to this album. I used a safety pin to attach a silver foil bird to a fabric page. Stitched beads or charms, or iron-on patches, would also make great embellishments for the fabric pages.

I gathered the punched pages together and placed them onto the screws to bind them together. The album is held together by wing nuts that twist onto the screws. I have 40 pages in this album and still have about 1/4 inch of space on the screws if I decide to add more pages at a later date.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

San Antonio's Missions

Hi Scrappers,

This is Veronica from www.vickyscrappingpassion.blogspot.com  sharing with you a Picture frame, which I modified with san-antonio-missions-clear-stamp-set and  Building a Shrine cling stamps:




 This was a very easy project to do. I bought this frame a long time ago thinking about these pictures, we took when we traveled to San Antonio in 2006. The frame was a bargain i got in one of the discount stores. Thus, when I saw the Missions stamps from PWP, I immediately thought about this project.

In short, I cleaned the cobwebs and dust from the frame, and stamped the three corresponding missions on top of the glass using StanzOn. I distressed some chippies using a metallic paste to add some extra interest to the frame. I cut some squares of watercoloring paper to mat the pictures and stamped a border using the Building a Shrine cling stamps and some bronze ColorBox inks. Since, I can't stamp straight for the life of me, I used WeRMemmories stamping tool. To finish the images, I glued the mats to the existing images, added some titles using sharpies, and assembled the frames. And voila, the frame is more personalize and ready to be hung in one of my walls, finally.

Some other views:





The metallic paste gives the sentiments an amazing shine.



My stamping wasn't perfect, but good enough. barely noticeable once hung. 

BTW, I finished my mixed media painting: Yeah... Here, I wanted to share it with you:


the red lines bled through three more times, hopefully after sealing, gessoing them, paint again, it should be fine...




I used:
san-antonio-missions-clear-stamp-set, and Building a Shrine cling stamps
PWP

Shadow Box Frame,
Stanz On Ink, black
Bronze ink, ColorBox
Metallic Paste
Sentiment chippies, Blue Fern Studios

Burned Cork Gift Card Tins

Burned Cork Gift Card Tins

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a fun way to alter metal tins. As both the sports season and school year come to a close, I find myself giving a lot of gift cards to the teachers and coaches that have helped my daughters over the year. Instead of tucking the gift cards into an envelope, I decided to upcycle some metal tins. I used some of my favorite Paper Wings Productions stamp sets and a wood burning tool to embellish pieces of cork. I love using my wood burning tool on soft materials like cork and leather.

Hello Kitty Metal Cookie Tins Before Altering

Here's what my metal tins looked like before I started this project. The bottom half of the tins are a solid color, so I chose to leave that portion of the tin untouched and focus my efforts on covering the top of the tin.

How to Apply Fabric Tape to Metal Tins

Metal can be tricky to cover with paint, so instead I applied a strip of fabric tape around edge of the lid.

How to Stamp on Cork with Archival Ink

Next, I cut pieces of cork to size and stamped designs onto them using archival ink.

How to Use a Wood Burning Tool on Cork

Once I was happy with the designs, I used a wood burning tool to trace over the stamped images.

How to Attach a Burned Cork Piece to a Metal Tin

Finally, I simply used hot glue to attached the burned cork pieces to the top of the metal tins. I love the look of burned cork. I plan to wrap a piece of colorful ribbon around each tin before I give them away. Markers work great on cork, and would be a great way to add color to the burned designs.

There's Hope Card

Hello friends. Larissa here today with a fun technique card.  It is a very easy technique as well.

I started off stamping the flower stamp on the card along with the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and Heat Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. It was hard to get on camera since is was clear on white cardstock. You can kind of see the flower below.


I picked several colors of Distress Inks out and grabbed some sponges.
I sponged the color across the card in rainbow order.


I continued down the piece of cardstock making sure to blend each other color into each other. I also used a tiny strip of felt I had laying on my desk to hold the card stock down so I would not smudge it with my fingers. 


Once I was done blending the colors I dropped some water drops on it and wiped them off with a paper towel. 

I adhered the card front onto a mat then on to the card base. To finish off my card I added a few clear drops around the card. Again hard to see. 


Products used for this card: 
Paper Wings Productions Stamp Sets
Always Hope 
Half Flower

Other Products:White and Black Cardstock
VersaMark Ink
Clear Embossing Powder
Heat Tool
Sponges (One for each color)
Distress Inks:
Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Lemonade Squeeze,
 Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Dusty Concord
ATG
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Clear

I hope you enjoyed by post today.

Bless Your Heart

Hello friends. Larissa here with you today. I created a card today using one of my favorite sayings. 
So lets get started. 


For this card I used: 


Other Products Used:
White Cardstock
Versafine Onxy Black Ink
Copic Markers
Black Gel Pen
Blue Ribbon 
Pattern Paper from my stash

I stamped the saying and the blue bonnets on a piece of cardstock and colored the images using Copic markers. 
I then went around the image with a black gel pen making little stitch marks. 


I adhered the images on a piece of pattern paper and then onto a white card base. 


To finish off the card I added a piece of blue ribbon I tied in a bow. 

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to check back to see what inspiration the DT team has for you this month. 



Have a wonderful day friends.

DT post: Bluebonnets and Butterflies Canvas

Hi Scrappers,

This is Veronica from www.vickyscrappingpassion.blogspot.com  sharing with you a Canvas I modified with wings-cling-stamp-setflowers-cling-stamp-set, and  the wildflowers-cling-stamp-set:




I used:
wings-cling-stamp-setflowers-cling-stamp-set PWP

Moments like this, Canvas Kit, Quick Quote


In short, I distressed the die cuts using the powder puffs mocha mama. I added some pearl watercoloring in shades of blue. Then, I added some stamped sentiments to the flourish die cuts and to the heart cut outs using powder puffs or distress oxide inks. For the butterfly die cuts, I stamped the wings using distress oxide. I also inked the edges of the canvas. The rest, I just followed the instructions of the kit.  For more details, here is the SnapGuide with more instructions.


Here some closeups:




I love the details the butterfly wings stamps add to these die cuts.





I also added some blue watercoloring to the big butterfly overlay. It blends everything together with bluebonnets in the pictures.

I hope you enjoyed my canvas and visit my blog:  www.vickyscrappingpassion.blogspot.com.

Stamped Mail Art Envelopes for National Letter Writing Month


Stamped Mail Art Envelopes

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a set of mail art envelopes that I stamped up for National Letter Writing Month. I have a thing for handwriting, so I really appreciate it when I receive a letter or card in the mail. I have a box full of handwritten letters and cards that I have saved over the years. This is all that I have left from some of my relatives. I thought it would be fun to celebrate National Letter Writing Month by sending some love through the mail in a pretty stamped envelope. The selection of stamps in the Paper Wings Productions Store is amazing, and you're sure to find a great design for any recipient. I chose some of my favorite stamp sets for this project.

Colofully Colored Stamped Fibonacci Sprial Mail Art Envelope

Whenever I get stuck with design, I like to go back to the basics. The Sacred Geometry 2 Clear Stamp Set has classic patterns that are super fun to work with. I chose the Fibonacci Spiral stamp for this envelope. I stamped up the left side of the envelope using black archival ink and then colored in the shapes with Distress Markers. I added a bit of decoration to the edge of the geometric design with the Lace Border Outline Clear Stamp.

Stamped Globe with White Clouds on Kraft Mail Art Envelope

I wanted to use a kraft envelope specifically with a white gel pen. I just love how the white ink really pops off the paper for a 3D-like effect. I used the Earth and Sky Mélange Cling Stamp Set to decorate the top half of this envelope. I added an address box using the inner frame of the polaroid stamp from the Snapshot Framer Clear Stamp Set.

Colorful Stamped Bird Panel Mail Art Envelope

I had to use a stamp featuring something with wings for my last design. The Bird Panel Clear Stamp Set is so beautiful and is an easy way to add a pretty scene using just one stamp. I used the Snapshot Framer Clear Stamp Set again to add an address spot, but this time I used the larger outer frame. After inking up the entire stamp, I removed the ink from the smaller frame using a wet wipe, and then stamped only the larger frame onto the envelope.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to send a friend or loved one some happy mail this month.
