Scrapbook Saturday-Peace, Love & Friends

Hey y'all & Happy Saturday!! It's Stephanie here and I have another layout to share for my guest design spot!
I have used again the September Mixed Media kit which is full of wonderful items, including My Minds Eye Market Street papers & diecuts, UmWow Studio chipboard and so much more!!
I started by splattering mist on my cardstock in black & gold. 
I love the papers in this collection & wanted to showcase some favorites here. The black & gold striped paper makes a great anchor & from there, I added other papers on top. 
The paper bow is adorable & works wonderfully on my feminine page! The resin flower on the top is from my stash. The mini alphas are from Tim Holtz & are also included in the kit, as is the acetate film strip.
Here you can see the chipboard glasses & crown from UmWow that I misted with green & gold mist. Love the way they look!
I used my scallop circle punch to add some half circles along the top & bottom of my page. Fringe scissors were used to add great dimension to the scrap tissue paper under all my paper layers! 

You can find this kit, along with so much more, in the Paper Wings shop.
Make it a crafty day!

Themed Thursday - Fathers Day Cards

Marie here and todayy theme is Fader´s Day cards. In Sweden we celebrate Fathers Day on November 9 so these cards was made for that occation. I used the same stamps, techniques and material on all four cards. I took photos trough the whole process so you get an idea on how to do quite similar cards that turn out totally different in the end.

 First of all I prepped my card bases with white gesso.

 I used different crayons for each card. Drawing a random pattern over the dried gesso.

 Looks like something my kid would have drawn.....

 To blend the creyons together i sprayed on water.

 After drying I couldn´t resist a bit of ink splattering....

After some more drying time I started to stamp with my Paper Wings Background stamps.
First I placed my cards side by side. Then I staped on two cards at the same time. The finishing toush was to stamp on the coffe ring and the grid pattern.

And this is what the cards look like after a bit of decorating.

Thank you for stepping by today!

Tutorial Tuesday - Natural Components December Daily Album

Hi Paper Wings fans! Dana here today sharing a quick and easy tutorial for a December Daily album that I put together using the November Natural Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit.

The versatility of this neutral kit is fantastic! By using Gelatos and Stamper's Big Brush Pens with some of my favorite stencils and stamps, I was able to transform the kit contents into a colorful, festive December Daily album.

A 5x7-inch Canvas Corp Canvas Portfolio is included in the kit! I spritzed the outer covers of the album with water, to help the canvas absorb the color, and then applied Gelatos to the canvas. I blended the color with a paintbrush and water.

I dried the portfolio with a heat gun and then added splatters of Tattered Angels Mist. I used Stamper's Big Brush Pens and stencils to add a pattern over the colored canvas. I finished the edge of the portfolio with some script using the Writing Cling Stamp and brown Archival Ink.

I wanted to be able to tie this album shut, so I hot glued a piece of canvas ribbon from my stash across the front and back covers. I then glued the prettier lace trim from the kit over that plain ribbon to dress it up a little. I still have the majority of the Vintage Christmas Nesting Components Kit leftover from last year and I pulled the chipboard deer from that kit to add a whimsical touch to the cover of my album.

The red and green flowers are from my personal stash. The white leaves, wood veneer leaves and game pieces (numbers will vary from kit to kit) are all from the November Natural Nesting Components Mixed Media Kit. I stamped the number 25 onto the cover using the Perfect Numbers Cling Stamp Set.

The mix of yuzen, petal, printed, natural fiber, and tissue papers included in this kit are so fun to touch and make each page of the album a little more interesting! I added a couple pieces of patterned paper and cardstock from my stash to add a pop of color to the inside of the album. I gathered the papers into a stack, folded them all in half, and then stitched the pages together along the crease with a piece of twine. I then secured the bundle of paper to the portfolio binding with a piece of hand-dyed ribbon. I stamped the date onto each page using the Perfect Numbers Cling Stamp Set. I'm looking forward to documenting the last month of the year!

We'd love to have you join our Monthly Challenge! You have until the 30th to link up your project for a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the Paper Wings Productions Store!

Featured Friday: Christmas Cards

Hello everyone! It's Amber here with this weeks Feature Friday post. I have two fun little Christmas cards to share today.

The first Christmas card I have to share features Paper Wings Productions Holiday Add Ons Clear Stamp Set. I have a few step by step pictures below showing how I put this colorful card together.

I started by stamping the cute little house onto a square piece of  patterned paper and  then I stamped the
"Home Is Where The Heart Is" sentiment onto a little tag.

Next I gathered all the little embellishments and the large acrylic die cut that I wanted to use for my card front and added them to my stamped pieces.

Above is a close up of my stamped and layered embellishments all put together. I also created a second little Christmas card to share today. You can check it out below. I used Paper Wing Productions Vintage Santa Cling stamp, a die cut tag from Studio Calico, a sentiment sticker, one acrylic snowflake, and two little snowflake buttons to create this one.

I hope you enjoyed my two Christmas cards today! Thanks for visiting! Don't forget we would love to see what you make with Paper Wings Productions Stamps so add your projects to our Flickr Group,to Pinterest, or leave a comment with a link to your project. You can also check out our Facebook Page and You Tube Page for daily inspiration.
