Life is a Journey wall hanging

Hello, crafty friends! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a funky mixed media piece created with the Art Textures, Big Art Textures, Writing Backgrounds and Kind Words stamp sets. This is my last post for Paper Wings Productions and I wanted to create something really neat! Life is definitely a journey and we need to make the most of it! I'd like to thank Carrie and the rest of the design team for having me along this term. I've thoroughly enjoyed myself!

I started with a 5x5 Gessobord and then added a torn piece of corrugated paper, a piece of fabric mesh and a rusted metal heart attached to a swivel clasp. I applied some crackle paste as well as some distress grit paste with a stencil. From there, I added an assortment of gears, charms, a book clip, buttons, beads, flowers,  and sea glass, and then covered everything in white gesso. Several of the items were repurposed- the fabric mesh, a pop-top and a hard plastic ring. Then came the fun part of inking it up with red, pink, orange and yellow India inks, spritzing with water and letting it run. I rubbed gold acrylic paint over all the surfaces and then I did some random stamping with black StazOn ink. I splattered watered-down white Gesso over the entire piece with a fan brush.

The final step was adding the pieces of paper straws, the sentiment and the twine for hanging. I'm really happy with how this turned out!

Hello friends. Larissa here with you today. I wanted to make sort of a vintage looking card using this stamp. I am always using the bright colors and bling so this was a little challenging.

Products Used:
Paper Wings Productions Vintage Santa Stamp 
Kraft Cardstock
Cocoa Ink
Prismacolor Pencils
White GellyRoll Pen
Autumn Red Nuvo Drops

I cut the piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped the image on it using cocoa ink. I then colored the image very lightly using my Prismacolor pencils. Once I was done coloring I took a white eraser and rubbed over the color to fade it a little more.
Once I was done this was the hard part for me.. to leave it alone! No rhinestones no sequins no glitter. NOTHING..

I rounded the corners off and matted it on a piece of white cardstock then onto a kraft card base. I did end up adding a Nuvo drop in each corner. I also took my Gelly Roll pen and made little snow dots around the image. I love the way white looks on the Kraft cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed my post today. Have a wonderful Holiday season.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you.

cocoa warms the heart

Hi everyone! Ashley here today sharing a cup of warm cocoa! 

I made this card using the Play with your Coffee and Frothy Concoctions stamp sets. 

The first thing I did was run my background through my Grand Calibur. I chose this layered heart embossing folder because I knew my sentiment would be 'cocoa warms the heart' from the Frothy Concoctions stamp set and I wanted a play on words. Next I watercolored the background with distress inks.

I stamped my coffee cup from the Play with Your Coffe stamp set onto patterned paper and fussy cut it. I stamped some marshmallows on white cardstock and fussy cut those before adding them to my cup with foam adhesive.

Then I used foam adhesive to place my cup of cocoa on my embossed heart background.

Thanks for looking!

Stamped Clip Art Christmas Ornaments


Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a fun Christmas ornament tutorial featuring Clip Art Sheets. All the Clip Art Sheets from the Paper Wings Productions Store are laser printed on high quality paper, which makes them great for image transfer techniques. I used pieces from the Itty Bitty Christmas Clip Art Sheet more simply for this project. I cut them out and sealed them with a layer of glaze for a festive focal point on some stamped snowflake ornaments.


Step One: Prepare Masonite snowflake ornament blanks for stamping by applying a layer of white spray primer. Note: I chose a spray primer to quickly color the inside of the detailed cutouts on my snowflake ornaments. Gesso, acrylic paint, or embossing powder would also work for this step.


Step Two: Use the Writing Backgrounds Cling Stamp Set with red archival ink to add a script print to the snowflake ornaments bases.


Step Three: Select several images from the clip art sheet and cut them down to size. Glue the clip art into the top layer of the ornaments.


Step Four: Cover the clip art images with a layer of glaze. Glue the clip art rounds onto the center of the snowflake bases.


Step Five: Cut several lengths of wire. Bend and twist the wire into hangers and attach to the ornaments.


Step Six: Embellish the ornaments.

These ornaments look great on the tree, but they would also look fantastic as gift toppers. Be sure to visit the Paper Wings Productions Store to see the wonderful range of Christmas, Holiday, and Seasonal stamp sets.


Thanks for stopping by today and let your creativity take flight!

hello Gorgeous

Hi everyone! Leslie here to share a DT inspiration project with you today, a fun accordion birthday book with a twine bow closure. I used the Vintage Domino Melange, Vintage Melange and Sayings and Sentiments stamp sets. All of these are just amazing!

I cut the accordion base from kraft cardstock. I cut the cover pieces with a stitched rectangle die and stamped the large flourish from the Vintage Melange stamp set on the front and back covers in brown ink. I heat embossed the front sentiment in gold, cut the words apart and affixed them to the front cover just above and below the twine line.

I stamped all nine domino-sized images from the Vintage Domino Melange stamp set on kraft cardstock and colored them in a very basic fashion with Spectrum Noir markers. I cut the images with a slightly smaller stitched rectangle die and layered them on brown die cuts. The birthday sentiment on the last panel is also from the Sayings and Sentiments stamp set.

For more details and additional photos, please see my blog post at Love To Scrap 2.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project! Be sure to check out all the fun stamps and other goodies at Paper Wings Productions! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time!
