Wings Embellishments

Hi all, Erin here today.  I have just fallen in love with the Wings stamps by Paper Wings Productions so much that I decided to make some fun little embellishments out of Styrofoam, paint, and the stamps!

The Wings stamps are just so cute!!  Perfect for any little project you may want to use wings!

Here is a couple of video tutorials ( I was having so much fun I made second video with a ton more of these fun little butterflies and wings) on how I made these fun wings using the Paper Wings stamps, Styrofoam, Glimmer Glaze from Tattered Angels, Beacon Glue, and then lots of little found objects around my craft studio.

Here is the second video with even more made!!

You can use these fun little butterflies for all kinds of uses, on tags, cards, as tops of bookmarks, magnets, clip toppers, and more!!  The possibilities are endless!!

Now go out and make your own wings!!!

Mixed Media Mini Junk Journals W/ Video Tutorials

I love the freedom of just playing with my craft materials.  Getting out some paper and glue, throwing down some paint and seeing what happened.  That is what these journals are all about.  I made 2 fun little journals complete with some amazing Paper Wings Stamps to give a pop on each each page. 

I used these 2 amazing stamps sets on these books.

A Sparkly Tiara

Hello friends. I am so excited to have this stamp set in my hands right now. It has been on my list for awhile and I finally got it. :) It is called With Some Sparkle

I started off with a piece of watercolor paper and did my favorite smooshing technique with some Peerless Watercolors. I then heat embossed the sentiment using Ultra Fine Antique Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamps.

To finish it off I matted the piece of watercolor paper onto a piece of Stampin Up Melon Mambo Cardstock and then added a few hot pink sequins to finish it off. I adhered the card front to a white card base. 

I think this has to be my favorite sentiment and I think I will be stamping it in my planner a few times. 

Hope you enjoyed my post today.
Have a wonderful day friends.

Planner Tag

Hello Friends. Larissa here today with a little something different.
 I have had this clear stamp set for awhile. And while I have inked it up several times and colored the images nothing has come to play. I couldn't figure out what to do with a card. So I took it out today and I was determined to have a finished project.
Then it hit me.
I took a kraft colored tag and stamped the St Francis image towards the bottom of the tag. I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I then took my white gelly roll pen and wrote the entire Prayer of St Francis on the tag around the image. I colored the image in lightly with Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with a dry stump.

And now I use it as a marker in my planner. 

The stamp set I used is the Santos Clear Stamp set 

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Have a wonderful day friends.

Hello friends. This summer there seems to be a new craze at the expensive coffee shop. The "Pink" drink. It is actually their Strawberry Acai refresher and they add coconut milk instead of water and some fresh strawberries. It actually is something pretty amazing. A super refreshing summer drink.
My card today is my take on the Pink Drink.

I stamped the cup from Frothy Concoctions Clear Stamps  twice on a piece of white cardstock and then stamped the lids and straws. I used the cherry and stamped it all on the inside of one cup and the heart at the bottom of the other. (There is not a strawberry in the set)
I then colored the images with Copic markers. I used RV13, RV14, and RV02 for the drink,
To finish the card off I used my little spritz tool and spritzed pink all over the card. It might be a little hard to see it in the picture.
I matted the card front onto a piece of SU Pink Pirouette cardstock and then adhered it to a white card base.

I know you see me use this stamp set a lot but you can do so much with it and it is one of my favorites.

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday friends.

Happy Crafting,
Larissa Pittman
