Sunday's Wall Art 7/31/11

Good morning What's Scrapping?

It's Jessica here with a new wall art.

Here's what you'll need:

1 12x12 canvas
Patterned paper or cardstock (I used 4 sheets from Basic Grey Out of Print)
Tim Holtz Distress Stain (I used Vintage Photo)
Mod Podge (I used glossy finish)
Sewing Floss (I used WRMK Sew Easy Floss)

1. I cut out 4 3" inch squares from each of my patterned papers (I used the back side for my squares)
2. I used my Tim Holtz Distress stain around all of the edges of the squares
3. I attached each square to the canvas with Mod Podge, and when it was dry, I added my top coat of Mod Podge
4. I cut out 8 2" hearts from each of my patterned papers (I used the main side of the same papers that I used for the squares)
5. I used my Tim Holtz Distress stain around all of the edges of the hearts
6. I attached 1 (coordinating) heart to each square with Mod Podge and when they were dry I added my top coat of Mod Podge
7. I applied a small strip of glue to the hearts (down the middle) and attached them to each of the bottom hearts
8. I then used my floss to do some stitching down the middle of each heart
9. To finish it up, I added 3 light coats of Mod Podge to each of the top hearts

Thanks for letting me share with you today!

Patriotic Bingo Card Album

I wanted to create an album for a Patriotic Presentation my son performed in at his school. When I saw the Patriotic Bingo cards by Jenni Bowlin, I had to have them. They are 5x7 and are sold individually or in a pack of 5. For this album, I only used 3 cards but could have easily used more. I printed 4x6 and wallet sized photos to use within the album. I bought all of the emebellishments from Michaels Craft Store (some of them were even on clearance!). Red and blue Bazzill papers were the perfect addition to the back of each bingo card. I used my zutter to punch and bind the bingo cards with white wires. Thank you for looking, Simply Create Designs by Denise.

Baby Shower Favor Tags

It seems like it's that time of year when we are all invited to a lot of baby showers, wedding and parties. I recently was asked to create favor tags for a friends upcoming baby shower. I selected a blue damask digital paper that matched her theme and using photoshop I arranged the digital DREAM definition image onto the paper. Then I printed out onto 8 1/2 x 11" paper. I used a punch by Marvy to create the tag. I tied brown crinkle seam binding to each tags. You can write a simple Thank You on the back of each tag before attaching them to your party favors. They can even be tossed onto the tables as decorations and that's it, simple yet decorative! Thank you, Denise.

Glitter Pom Garland and Cupcake Toppers

This Glitter Pom Garland is made from pink sparkle tulle. I wrapped the tulle around my hand around 6 times. Then I slipped it off my fingers and tied a small knot on the center of the tulle. I I cut each side with scissors and fluff up the sides. Then I used clear twine and a needle to thread each pom. I left about 12 inches on each side to hang the garland with. For the cupcake toppers, the poms are made in the exact same way. Instead of stringing the poms, they are attached to 4 inch candy sticks to create adorable matching cupcake toppers. Thank you for looking! Denise

sunday wall art 7/10/11

Good afternoon What's Scrapping!
It's Sunday which means it's time for some new wall art....
Today I'd like to share a painting of Hello Kitty that I did for my daughter.....

Here's what you'll need:
a projector
one sheet of transparency film
fine tip sharpie
a canvas

First, you'll need to find the image that you want to paint and trace the picture onto the transparency film with your sharpie. Then place the transparency onto the projector and line it up to your canvas. Trace the image onto the canvas with a pencil. Last but not least, go to town and get it painted!!!!!

Crafty Tuesday Mini Bird Cage Album

Hello, this Tuesday at What Scrapping is a Mini Bird Cage Album. I bought this bird cage at the dollar store. I decided to decorate it and use it to house my mini bird album. I used my Big Shot and the Bird with Wing die by Sizzix. I used chipboard to create the album. This I used Basic Grey papers I had to cover the album. I used some jewels, and fairy dust to embellish the album. On the bird cage, I used Tim Holtz chain to hang the cage and turqoise frilly trims around the bottom of the cage. I used Jenni Bowlin butterflies on the top of the cage along with a pearl jewel. And thats it, simple and enexpensive to create! Thank you for looking! Simply Create by Denise
