Pink Persimmon Christmas Banner

Hello stamper's!!  Today I'm excited to share this little Christmas Banner.  I LOVE Pink Persimmon's "Big Banner with Rosettes" set and have used it in the past to create a Fall Banner and Baby Shower Banner as well.  Each flag measures 3 1/8" across x 3 5/8" top to bottom.  As soon as I seen the images in the Antiquated Collection "Winter Girl" by Lisa M. Pace ... I this set would be the perfect embellishments for a banner! 

Long post today .... but 

if you have never altered chipboard letters ... then make sure you don't miss the tips near the bottom of the post.

I posted a tutorial on how to create these textured leaves for this banner HERE.

You can find more inspiration using this set on  Lisa's blog and the Pink Persimmon Blog.
I used patterned paper from a 6 x 6 Christmas themed paper pad and chipboard letters I pick up at Hobby Lobby.   And that yummy lace in the background is from either Hobby Lobby, or Joann's.  Sorry I'm blanking out on the supplies today.  I'm almost certain it's from Hobby Lobby though.

Tips for altering the chipboard letters :

2 options for staring out for the first step ...
1. Place letter on back of patterned paper, trace around edges with a pencil, trim around pencil lines and adhere to letter.
2. Adhere chipboard letter to back of paper, after dry, trim around edges of chipboard letter with an exacto knife.

Either way is fine.  But the most important step to finishes off the edges so nicely is to file any excess paper using a Basic Grey Precision File tool.   I think you can get these at Hobby Lobby. Notice they have different shapes.  One is great for flat edges and others for tight corners.  Then just ink the edges with an eye shadow applicator and ink.

If you like mini banners then this set is a must have!!!

Baby Shower Gift Set and Banner

Hello friends.  I know it is really such a little thing in life, but I'm a little sad because our Neighborhood Association says I have to get rid of my bird bath and possible my bird feeder (gotta give them a call about that one, not sure if it's the bird feeder or the bird feeder stand they have a problem with) in my front yard.  Both are partially hidden behind the shrubs just outside my studio window and I love seeing my little bird friends stop by to visit.  : (   What's the world coming to if you can't have a bird feeder in your front yard!  teehee.   

Has anyone been watching The Voice or Survivor???  Who are your favorites.  I don't watch a lot of tv but I do enjoy the talent oriented shows.  And yes it does take a lot of talent to be on Survivor, teehee.  I'm really upset Malcolm got voted off.  And I honestly love everyone who is left except Sherry.  

How do you even pick a winner for The Voice??   Soooooo many talented singers.  I have to say I just LOVE geek Michelle and I did take time to vote for her this week.  So glad Usher slowed her down a little and showcased that she can sing well!  I'm pulling for 16 yr old Danielle on Blake's team.  I'm having a problem picking a fav on Adam's team.  I think Amber and Judith are the best.  AND WOW!!! Shakira has the BEST team in my opinion!!   I'd have to go with Sasha or Chris if I had to choose.  Will see who stays tonight!!

Well I guess I should share a little about tonight's post, teehee!  I made this set last year and hadn't got around to posting it yet.  I LOVE Pink Persimmon's "Baby Clothesline" and "Baby Greetings" so I decided to create a little shower set.

Check out all Pink Persimmons stamp images HERE.

I also LOVE their banner sets.   They make creating your own banner really easy!

Here are a few other projects I have created using "Baby Clothesline"

Have a great night!!  I'm off to get ready for bed.  I have to be up at 4am, grrrr!  But so very thankful to have a job!

Fall Banner / Textured Leaf Tutorial

Hello paper crafters.   Today I want to share a fall banner I designed using  Pink Persimmon's "Big Banner with Rosettes" and "ATC Sized Background - Fairy Tale".    I'm also sharing a tutorial on how I created the leaf embellishments.  This little banner could easily be turned into a "Give Thanks" banner as well.  And .... for a casual dinner table, I think the leaf / button embellishments I made could be converted into a napkin ring holder.  

This "Big Banner" set is so awesome!!  With this set you could create a banner for every holiday.  I didn't use the rosettes this time, so you have to hop over and check them out.

I love the texture and variation of color I was able to create on my die cut leaves with an embossing folder and acrylic paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
If you create a banner using "Big Banner", I'd love to see your idea's.  I will need some inspiration for future holidays!
hugs,  Melisa

The oak leaf was a dark brown.  Create more depth by layering on acrylic paint with your fingers.  I used a dark orange color here.

Add more paint. I used a cream on this one.

Here I lightly sprayed with Sunset Orange spray ink and then used a paper towel to soak some of it up.  It changed the color of the cream paint to a yellowish orange color.  

I went back over with a dark brown here and there and then ink the edges brown.  Just keep layering until you get lots of different shades.

The maple leaf was a bright orange.  I started layering paint again beginning with a dark brown and then tan. Sprayed with the Sunset Orange and blotted off with paper towel.  Then added more paint and inked the edges.

Cut smaller leaves from patterned paper and ink edges.  Paint wooden buttons with cream paint and add twine bows.  Layer leaves and buttons.  Punch holes in each end of each flag.  Thread seam binding through.  Adhere leaf embellishments.

Shabby Chic "CREATE" Banner

Hello paper crafters.  Today I'm sharing a banner I created using a chipboard banner kit by Maya Road  .  I purchased mine from Hobby Lobby.

I purchased the chipboard letters from Hobby Lobby as well.  

I covered the inner, triangular pieces with tissue paper and dry brushed on white paint.  After painting the letters and scalloped part of the banner, I covered them with Aleene's Tachy Glue and then sprinkled with glitter.

Hope you are inspired to make a banner of your own!!
Have a great day!

Rejoice / Easter Banner

Last month I shared a valentine banner you could hang across a mantel.  But you can also create table top banners.  This one was created using a chipboard bi-fold album I had in my stash from years ago.  I'm not sure if anyone still makes these, but you could make your own. 

A lot of the supplies I used are old, so I'm not going to include a detailed list this time.  But I will tell you that the beautiful cross is made by Rubber Stampede and it's called Elegant Cross.  I'm pretty sure I bought it at Hobby Lobby last year, so it may still be available.  The butterfly is Layer's of Color. "Rejoice in the miracle of Easter" is a digital image from DeeDee's digi's.

The backgrounds are all patterned paper in pastel colors and then I distressed here an there using the same cream acrylic paint I used on the chipboard letters.

"For God so loved the world ..." is also a digital image.  Most of the time, when I purchase digital images, I make the name of the shop I bought it from part of the file name.  Unfortunately I didn't with this one : ( . 

Hope you are inspired to create your own Easter banner!  I'd love to see it.

And I want to share that I am thrilled to be the guest designer for Sweet N Sassy this month!  Their April new release blog hop is this Thursday and I hope you will join us!  There will also be a party over at SCS on this thread HERE.  You will be able to participate in challenges and possibly win some stamps!!  There are some real cutie patootie's being released this month and I can't wait to share what I have designed with 2 of the new release sets!

Video Tutorial - Valentine Banner

Hello paper crafters!  Today I'm sharing a video tutorial on how to create this vintage style valentine banner.   I will be teaching you how to create the letters for the banner using a mirrow image on your computer.  You will also learn how to create the rosettes and everything else you need to know to create a valentine banner of your own!


I hope you like the video.  I'm still REALLY frustrated with learning how to edit.  I did the video once and then accidently erased it  : (  .  But I'm not going to give up.  I did learn a few new things this time .... like how easy it is to post the video on my blog.  I have another valentine project in the works to share with you soon.  It will be an altered heart shaped paper mache box.  I've also been working on my valentine ATC's.  Thanks so much for all your support and for checking out the video!

Have a great day!

Hear comes Peter Cottentail !

Easter is right around the corner, so I thought I had better get some cards done and in the mail.  

Tip : Stamping on Ribbon
Well not much of an explanation needed.  But my tip is to use a juicy pigment ink.  I used Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate on the pink ribbon above.  I love the Brilliance line of inks for a pigment ink.  I also use VersaMagic.

Here is an Easter tin I made last year.

Tip : Altering a vegtable can
So inexpensive to make.  It's actually a vegtable can.  Squeeze the sides together slightly to make it longer at the top.  I sprayed it with this yummy brown texture spray paint.  Then smeared on a little pink acrylic paint.  I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes in the side.  I painted wooden beads and threaded them on some brown craft wire.  I twisted the wire down both sides of the beads and attached through the holes on the sides.   It would be even cuter if you added some wooden balls at the bottom to create feet!
Here is an Easter Banner I made last year and posted over on my TAC blog.

Tip : Cardboard Art
The entire project is acrylic paints, stamps, punches and ink.  I used cardboard, tore off parts of the front to reveal the riples. I painted the backgrounds of each panel with layers of acrylic paints. Messy and fun!!
The Easter set I used on the tin and the banner  is No Bunny Like You by TAC.  All the florals are various TAC sets as well.  The font is Big Timber by Technique Tuesday.  This has always been one of my favorite TT sets because it's open.  So you can stamp it on any type of pattered paper and you have a perfect match for a layout.  Or stamp a pattern and then the letter over that. 
I hope this gets you in the mood to create something fun for Easter!
