Holiday Bingo

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! My Etsy shop is filled with holiday items, soldered pendants, soldered ornaments, felt ornaments, collages and ATC’s!

Here are a couple of collage wall hanging decorations on vintage Bingo Cards.

Too early??

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Is it too early for holiday projects? I just did a review over on Craft Gossip for the Silhouette Printable Canvas and thought it would be perfect for a tree ornament. I printed a digital stamp onto the canvas, coloring it with markers and adding some white puffy paint to his hat. I die cut the canvas twice with a label shape, since the canvas is sticky I was able to sandwich the pieces together with some batting in the middle to make a cute puffy fabric ornament.

Hocus Pocus

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

I love to incorporate stamping with my mixed media collages. Here’s some more info on how I made these fun Halloween wall decorations.

Witches Bingo Card

Using a vintage BINGO card as a base I stamped tiny stars all over in black ink. I made a copy of a vintage photo and tinted the girls clothes with alcohol markers, added witch hat brads to their heads and also some vintage book text. I layered this onto black cardstock trimmed with deckle edge scissors and adhered it to my bingo card. For the medallion I layered a plain punched circle from yellow cardstock onto a scalloped circle from black cardstock and on top of that I adhered a black cat which I stamped onto white cardstock, embossed using black embossing powder and cut out. To the top corners of the bingo card I added some large eyelets and tied some ribbon to hang it from.

Boo Bingo Card

For this card I did similar treatments on the photo, card and hanger but instead of the medallion I added some triangles cut from purple and yellow cardstocks and added stamped letters to each flag to spell out “BOO!”.

Both of these (and a few other Halloween themed collages) are currently available here in my Etsy shop.

I’m adding lots of fun Halloween items to my Etsy shop like these collages done on vintage Bingo cards.

Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

Instead of a black cat these young witches have a black dog.

Fabric Fiesta

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

I just did a review over on Craft Gossip using the Silhouette Fabric Interfacing material which allows you to cut out fabric with a Silhouette die cutting machine. I was amazed at how clean it cut! For my project I cut out some banners, a bird and the word “happy” and ironed them onto some unbleached muslin, sewed on some buttons, added some ribbon knots and put it in a wooden embroidery hoop. I love my blue bird of happiness wall hanging, I think it’s adorable!

Take Flight

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

A while ago a friend cleaned out her craft closet and gave me lots of cool stuff to play with. One of the things she gave me was a bag of angel wings she’d removed from some old ornaments. It took awhile to figure out what I wanted to do with them but I got the crazy idea to mount a small canvas on the front and I came up with…The Queen of Flight. There’s layers of vintage paper, felt, rhinestones, book text, a vintage button and a charm dangling from the bottom too. I think she’s ready to take flight!

Shabby Nest Collage

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Been working on some new collages on vintage BINGO cards. Here’s the first, it’s got a pretty bird and German scrap paper nest, vintage silver button, lace flower and layers of felt and music paper with white washed scrabble tiles. It hangs from pink grommets and wire.

Gears and Cogs and Watch Parts, Oh My!

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Here’s a couple of Steampunk themed collages I made recently. They both use a cool steampunk girl stamp from Sweet Pea stamps. The larger collage is on a vintage Bingo card with metal gears and cogs, move-able clock hands, it’s hanging from wire on metal grommets with a key charm.

The Art Card is on a reproduction small Bingo card that says Woman’s Auxiliary Air Force, it also has a metal gear.

They are both currently avilabe in my Etsy Shop.

Do Fairies Eat Jello?

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

Awhile ago at an antique shop I picked up a stack of vintage Jello mould tins and have been staring at them trying to figure out what to make. Here’s my first idea, I turned them on their sides and put captured fairies in them with a ribbon loop at the top to hang them from. I added some vintage paper at the back and some faux grass at their feet. I think they turned out pretty sweet.

I found these cool little metal bird cages at the craft store and thought they were fun. I turned this one into a captured fairy cage. I used a photocopy of a cute vintage girl and adhered her to chipboard and cut her out, then added some chipboard wings behind her and a rhinestone. I put faux grass in the bottom of the cage and set her inside. Pretty simple but pretty cute too :)
