Today I made for you an ornament/wall hanging from...you guessed it, another rusty old candy tin.  This time I only used the inside base of the tin.  I stamped and cut out the image from the Waves Magic stamp set.  I colored the image with colored pencils and trimmed it to fit inside the tin.  


Next, I glittered the snowy portion of the image and around the edge of the inside of the tin.  I put in a little bottle brush tree I made (I had to cut off the back side of the tree in order for it to fit!).  


I cut a sheet of mica to fit the front of the tin and adhered it into place.  I glittered the edge of the mica and front edge of the tin.



To make it hang, I ran ribbon under the little tabs that normally hold the lid on the tin.  I used some glue to keep it in place.


This project was super fast and fun.  I love the results!  Even if you don't have rusty old tins laying around, you could get similar results by using the bottom of a white jewelry box or really any box.

November blog hop with Paper Wings Productions

WELCOME to Paper Wing Productions' Thankful Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway! If you've arrived here from Norma's Blog, then you're in the right place.  If you're just stopping by for a visit, please CLICK HERE to start from the beginning.


This month we’re taking a moment to give thanks for all of the wonderful things in our lives and showcasing them in our Thankful blog hop.  So grab some coffee, tea or whatever works for you, get comfortable and enjoy the hop. 



The main prize is a $25.00 gift certificate to the New Paper Wings Production’s online store.

For a chance to win all you need to do is:
  • be a follower of the Paper Wings Productions blog
  • visit each of the participating designer's blogs and leave a comment
  • come back and leave us a comment telling us you completed the hop.
To increase your chances of winning: like our Facebook page and/or invite your friends to the hop.  Be sure to leave a separate comment for each of your additional entries. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Nov 5th, 2013 on the Paper Wings Productions blog.

I came up with lots of ideas for our theme of Thankful.  There are so many things in life to be thankful of.  Ideas were flowing more freely than time.  At one point I had 3 different projects started.  I decided to go with a format that I love and I find myself gravitating to over and over...bookbinding.




I started out with blank 7 gypsies book covers.  I stamped the Paper Wings Productions leaf stamp using markers to get multiple colors on the image on a piece of paper.  I then carefully stamped the "giving thanks" phrase over the leaf.  I glued that paper to the inside of the cover.  I embellished the cover with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, fusible webbing and embossing powders.  


I bound the book using a Coptic with long stitch binding (I'm teaching this sewing method at Stamp Antonio this month).

After it was bound, I filled the opening of the cover and the paper flower and leaves with resin.  It leaves such a cool glass like finish!


I used a lot of pieces from the September Nesting Components Mixed Media kit.  The ribbon, paper leaves and flowers, fusible webbing, and embossing powder all came from the kit.




I am thinking of offering online classes and tutorials.  Let me know what you'd like to see offered.  Bookbinding, of course, is top on my list.  Thanks for joining me today!

September Blog Hop with Paper Wings Productions

Friday, September 6, 2013

WELCOME our Autumn themed Paper Wing Production's Design Team Blog Hop & Giveaway!  If you've arrived here from Shay's Blog, then you're in the right place.  If you’re just stopping by for a visit, please CLICK HERE to start from the beginning.

...

This month we’re sharing gorgeous autumn themed projects full of warm rich colors.  So get comfortable and prepare to be inspired!!  This month’s main prize is a gift certificate to the New Paper Wings Production’s online store.



For a chance to win all you need to do is:
  • be a follower of the Paper Wings Productions blog
  • visit each of the participating designer's blogs and leave a comment
  • come back and leave us a comment telling us you completed the hop.
To increase your chances of winning: like our Facebook page and/or invite your friends to the hop.  Be sure to leave a separate comment for each of your additional entries.

The winner will be announced on Tuesday, Sept 9th, 2013 on the Paper Wings Productions blog.

Today I am sharing two of my favorite fall projects using the Paper Wings Productions stamps.

First up is a card.  I started with a page from an old book.  I stamped and embossed the book page with the leaf image with clear embossing ink and clear embossing powder.  Next I inked over the embossed images with Distress Inks.  When you apply the ink, the embossed areas resist the ink and the stamped image stays the same color as the paper was before you inked.

Next I stamped a small piece of brown paper with the saying "Every leaf speaks bliss to me fluttering from the autumn tree."  I applied Ranger's Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint and allowed to dry.  When assembling the card, I wrapped the card front with raffia and layered the stamped pieces onto the orange cardstock.  




My next project is an upcycled book project.  I started with an old Reader's Digest book.  These books usually have gorgeous printed covers.  I carefully took out the text block of pages (I always save and use for another project...see above).  I punched holes in the cover, cut inside pages of extra paper (a great way to destash your scrapbook paper you have TONS of!) to fit inside the book and bound the whole thing with the big 2" binder's ring.



I filled the inside with scrapbook paper, cardstock, burlap, fabric, basically anything that was sturdy enough for me to punch holes in.
For the cover, I used the Circle Frame stamp and stamped the phrase "Thanks is for giving" in the middle.  I layered it onto the cover of the book and added paper leaves, a stick from my yard and raffia.

I hope you enjoyed my projects!

Now be sure and go back to the Paper Wings Productions Blog and let them know you finished the hop!

When I think of "vintage", I think of old rusty metal objects. This month's theme inspired me to work with some rusty candy tins I've been saving. We all know how much I love old candy tins! One day during an artsy mama playdate, my friend Robin showed me how to stamp into molten solder (when it's still liquid). This technique proves once again just how durable red rubber stamps are! Stamps are such great tools, don't you think?

 I used bits and pieces from the August Nesting components Mixed Media kit to embellish the tins. I used the clip art sheets, pearl embellishments, rub ons, paper from the envelopes and the circles background stamp from the kit.


 I adhered everything to the tin and coated the entire tin in Ice Resin.


I stamped the sides and bottom of the tin with the Writings Background stamp and Staz On ink.



Here's the second tin.


 I can't believe how clear the stamped image comes out in the solder!



Here's a bonus piece I made since I had the resin out. A simple pendant. I stamped the birds on old book paper, adhered it to the bezel and filled with resin.


I hope you enjoyed my projects! I also hope that I have inspired you to think beyond the paper and create something unique with your rubber stamps!
