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!

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:

Stamped Canvas Heart Valentines

Stamped Canvas Heart Valentines by Dana Tatar for Paper Wings Productions

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a quick Valentine tutorial. I used two craft materials that I love, canvas and mist, with Paper Wings Productions stamps to create this set of Valentines. I started this project with store-bought stitched canvas hearts, so all I needed to do to personalize these shapes was add color, stamp, and embellish.

Step 1: Prime the canvas hearts with a light spritzing of water. Wet canvas will readily absorb color. Next, spray the hearts with mist. I used several shades of red, orange, pink, and purple Tattered Angels mist. While the hearts were still wet, I stacked them and applied pressure to transfer colors from one heart to another. The results are similar to a tie dye effect with interesting spots of color.

Step 2: Stamp sentiments onto the canvas hearts with a permanent, waterproof ink. I used stamps from the Valentine Wishes Cling Stamp Set.

Step 3: Embellish! I finished my Valentines with some simple stitched buttons.

You can find the full selection of Valentine's Day stamp sets in the Holiday Section of the Paper Wings Productions Store. If you're looking to jumpstart your Valentines Day crafting, pick up the Valentine Mini Mixed Media Kit.

DT Post: Quick Christmas Cards

This is Veronica from  sharing with you some quick cards I made for a visit to a nunnery, where my daughter was going to do some Caroling.  

For this album, I used:

Inks: Saddle: Hero Stamps. 
My Mind  Eyes printed glittered papers
CTMH White Cardstock

I made this card using scraps from other projects and quickly stamped the sentiments and images from this amazingly beautiful stamp set. These images are so rich that don't need a lot to look complete. I made more than 10 cards in no time this way...

I hope you enjoyed my cards and visit my blog.

Have wonderful and blessed Happy New Year and stay nice and warm crafting along...

sending you warm wishes

Hello! Ashley here today I'm sending you warm wishes - because I need them myself. It's 5 degrees here today and it literally hurts to go outside.

For this "warm wishes" card, I used two stamp sets: Play with your Coffee and Winter Mix it Up. I adore this little border of coffee cups in the Play with your Coffee stamp set. So cute!

I used distress ink + watercoloring for the background. I heat embossed my stamp and my sentiment. Here is a close up of the stamping:

Thanks so much for looking! I hope you're all staying warm!

Stocking Stuffies

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a fun tutorial for stocking stuffer animals that I created for my daughters. My crafty time is definitely short this holiday season, so I started with a Craft-Tastic Design Your Own Stuffies kit from Ann Williams Group. I purchased this kit from Zulily, but you can find these kits in the craft sections of several major big box stores. These super-cute pre-sewn felt and plastic paper stuffies are ready to design and were a real time-saver.

Pre-Sewn Stuffie from Craft-Tastic DYO Stuffies Kit

Here are the two stuffies I started with. I know that with my limited sewing skills I could not have stitched these pieces together myself. I was happy to skip the assembly step and start designing with stamps!

I designed a cat on the larger stuffie. I used the product examples from the box as a guide to draw the nose with a black marker. Then I used stamps and black archival ink to finish the rest of the design. The Sacred Geometry Clear Stamp Set and the Single Dot Border Clear Stamp Set together made a great eye! I used the Scallop Border Clear Stamp Set and the holly from the Holiday Add-Ons Clear Stamp Set to add a festive pair of pants.

Next, I added color with Faber-Castell Gelatos, Pitt Artist Pens, and Stamper's Big Brush Pens. I added a small heart to the right side of this stuffie with the Easter Cling Stamp Set.

I used the Easter Cling Stamp Set again to stamp a rabbit face onto the second stuffie. The happy Band-Aid is part of the Under the Weather Cling Stamp Set. I created the striped pants with the Straight Journaling Lines Clear Stamp Set. Once both stuffies were stamped and colored, I filled them with the polyester stuffing that was included in the kit.
