Fun Friday with Pam

These are my sweet Grandchildren a few years ago. Love these two of course.
I used Prima Wild + Free A4 paper pack to make this 12 x 12 layout. It really wasn't too difficult to stack two sheets and trim to size. I added the border along the lower edge and you really cannot tell I used the smaller sheets to make this. As the photo shows, adding in a real craft feather gives it just a little more interest. The die are dream catcher set and feathers.

Fun Friday with Pam

Winter Stag and Birch Trees.
Who doesn't love a stark birch tree in the winter time?. I have had my eye out for a birch stamp for a while now. I final found one that was not tiny and this is what I decided to make. They were a layering process. The first thing I did was to stamp the birch trees on many different types of paper and fussy cut the in between tree parts out {noted below each photo}  
This was initially stamped on an old gift bag that was silver white glitter. To prep the bag, I removed some of the paper backing using just water and rolling it off. Next I stamped using stazon black ink.I had to go back in and retouch most of it with a permanent fine tip pen. The glitter seems to absorb the ink.
Then I mounted it to my background which is just a Christmas wrap scrap secured to sturdy cardstock. Finally I added in a few torn pieces of gift bag and the diecut stag and deer
This one was stamped directly on background paper. Metallic white card stock paper. I defined the trees with a chalk marker and went over it with black liner

Add stag and deer cut from heavy weight shimmer paper as well
Above stamped onto blue cardstock, highlighted with chalk and touched up with black. Fussy cut out forest, mounted on more blue, and glitter scraps as well.
This background is Christmas wrap as well. One solid piece mounted to firm background. Fussy cut and add in more trees. Stag is a decorative ribbon cut out. Note: Glue the image from the ribbon to a card stock base before fussy cutting.

Fun Friday with Pam

Do you ever look at the bits and scraps you save and think...I should make something?. Well that was the inspiration for these 4 x 4 cards.
I tend to hang onto scraps and interesting things I find. Christmas wrapping paper is a difficult one for me. I love so many of those patterns.
Above is the backing from a fancy sticker. I used it as the template to spray, then Tucked the colored bits in the bottom layer of the cards.




I picked up the overspray with the edges of the card stock that will line the back of these cards.  They are for trading in our IO paper traders art group HERE
Some of the things and sources used on these cards:
