DT: Spring Burlap Pannel

Hi Scrappers,

This is Veronica from  sharing with you a burlap panel I made using the indian-blanket-cling-stamp and the wildflowers-cling-stamp-set sentiment

I used:

Indian Blanket stamp set, PWP 
the wildflowers-cling-stamp-set sentiment 
Burlap Panel, TH, Ranger 
Distress Crayons, TH, Ranger 
Water Brush, TH, Ranger 
Stencil, Michael 
Gold Chalk Marker 
Archival ink, Ranger 

See my SnapGuide here, for steps by steps. In short, I stamped the Indian Blanket image using archival ink on tissue paper. I diluted some distress crayons with ModPodge instead of water and added to the burlap panel using a stencil for a colorful background. Then, I diluted some golden chalk also with ModPodge and added a faint border around the panel. When it was died, I added the stamped tissue paper to the panel using ModPodge and let it dry. Finally, colored the stamped image using the diluted crayons with ModPodge and a brush. To finish the look, I used a previously stamped specialty paper with the wildflowers sentiment and inked the edges of the fussy cut paper with golden chalk. I attached the sentiment to the panel using 3D zots.

Some closer looks:

I hope you enjoyed my burlap panel and visit my blog:

Alcohol Ink Resist Cards

Press for Progress Alcohol Ink Resist Card by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

Hi! Dana here today sharing a set of cards that I created for Women's History Month. Annually during the month of March, the contributions of women to historical events, both in the past and in contemporary society, are highlighted. I thought a resist technique was suitable for cards supporting this movement. I used a tutorial by Carrie to create these cards in which alcohol ink is removed from acetate using Archival ink. You can find her tutorial and inspirational designs HERE.

I chose patterned acetate sheets for the base of both of my cards. I had to dig deep into my Hambly Screen Prints stash for this, and it was totally worth it! The International Women's Day theme this year is "Press for Progress." I love the theme and the imagery of hands used in the campaign so I used both hand stamps from the Handmade Clear Stamp Set on this card.

I changed the color palette for this second card, but used circles in the design again. I stamped over alcohol ink with the circles stamp from the Big Art Textures Cling Stamp Set and then rubbed away the ink with a paper towel to create the white circles.

I used my Dymo tape label maker to create the sentiments for both cards.

I hope I have inspired you to try this technique!

She took a leap and built her wings on the way down

Hi friends! Ashley here today sharing a card I made with the Fairies stamp set. This little fairy is adorable and could be colored so many ways! I heat embossed her with gold and then used mostly pink Copics to color her. Then I fussy cut her and adhered her to my card base with foam adhesive.

My card base was made using the packaging technique and misting. I added some flicks of gold and pink shimmer mist too.

My sentiment is from the Brave Girls stamp set. I heat embossed it with the same fine gold detail embossing powder that I used my on fairy girl. Fairies seem like they need gold in their life - am I right?

DT post: Happy February Always Shadow Box

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica from  sharing with you a quick gift I made for my father's birthday:

I used:
Graphic 45 papers:

Some hear stickers,
A wooden shadow box from Hobby Lobby
Heart outline and happy photo frame dies, Teresa Collins for Craftwell:

DecoFoil in red and DecoFoil glue pen

First, I stamped the flaming heart images around the outer sides of the box using DecoFoil glue pen and added some red foil more or less successfully.

 I added a border from the seller stamp set around the frame, with less success 😜

I cut some frames for cuts using the Graphic 45 papers and the heart outline shape. I glued the frames to my pictures using scorch tape.

 I made two paper rossetes from paper border strips leftover from a previous project and added the hearts.

 I stamped 2 veneer shapes with the little heart stamp and DecoFoiled too. 

I added a piece of clear packaging material to a foam outline heart die cut and glued the heart outline from paper on the other side of the clear acrylic to make the heart shaker with some shaped sequins inside.

I made this shadow box for my father’s birthday, and wanted to make it special highlighting my children’s love for him.

I hope you enjoyed my shadow box and visit my blog.

Stamped Mini Book

Stamped Mini Book by Dana Tatar

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a super fun mini book of colorful stamped art. I recently finished up Nathalie Kalbach's Creative JumpStart Online Workshop. I created this project with instructions from the lesson taught by Birgit Koopsen. I am a huge fan of mini books and albums and this is a great design! I often times have a hard time choosing stamps. This project allowed be to use a lot of my favorites!
Stamped Mini Book with Clip Art Cover by Dana Tatar

I chose to use a clip art image on the front of this book, rather than create a stamped cover similar in design to the inner pages. This cute photo of a girl and her bird caught my eye. I kept the cover simple, adding only a red vellum heart and ribbon closure. I think this plain, mostly black and white cover, makes the colorful pages of the book more of a surprise upon opening.

Here is the full list of stamp sets I used on this book:
