Club Scrap Paris Flea Market Blog Hop

Welcome to the February Club Scrap Blog Hop featuring this month's kit, Paris Flea Market. If you arrived here from Inkstained Roni's blog then you are in the right place. If not, be sure to check out Karen's post over at Club Scrap for a complete list of participating blogs.

Inspired by the popular fabric ribbon pin boards, I created my own version featuring a cardboard base (Club Scrap Pizza boxes) and paper from the Paris Flea Market Deluxe kit.

*Scroll to the bottom of this post for a photo tutorial.

I have added some projects to my ribbon pin board as well.

The paper lace mat dress was inspired by this sweet napkin fold. Click HERE for details.

I designed a tag featuring the Jumbo UM Paris collage stamp and a shabby chic technique I learned HERE.

The ATC (artist trading card) is painted with Tattered Rose Distress Crackle paint. I added a fussy cut Paper Lace basket (distressed with Onyx ink rubbed over the raised surface) and added flowers to create dimension.

The white flowers (Sizzix Tiny Tattered Florals Thinlits Dies) and butterflies (Sizzix Detailed Butterflies Thinlits Dies) were die cut from the Paper Lace Mats.

I used Victorian Velvet Distress stain over the Paper Lace Mat to create the pattern on the card panel. The quote is from the Jumbo UM Rubber stamp set.

The next stop on the hop is Anne Marie's Artfully Balanced Blog!

Photo Tutorial for Ribbon Pin Board

Two pieces of 12x12 cardboard glued together, several varying lengths of black ribbon (Paris Flea Market Fiber pack) 12x12 Pink Deluxe Print trimmed to 11.75" square and Washi Tape.
Use washi tap to cover the exposed corrugated edges. 
Adhere the print to the top front of the board.

Lay the ribbons over the board. 

Use acrylic paint to alter nail heads.

An extra layer of card board was needed to cover the exposed nail heads. Using a hammer, I flattened any exposed sharp points. 
Enjoy your finished project! 

Thanks for joining us on the Hop!

Paris Flea Market Color Burst Card

Today on the Club Scrap Blog, Kay Williamson shared four ideas on how to use this lovely Paris Flea Market collage image from the Jumbo UM stamp collection.

Last week I was playing with some of my Caribbean Color Burst pigment powders and used this same stamp. Instead of randomly sprinkling the powders across the embossed image, like in the Stained Glass Technique, I decided to take a different approach.

I sprinkled each color in the Caribbean set into specific sections of the collage image.

I had fun experimenting with other collage stamps from my collection.

Here is the finished card using the Paris Flea Market image. I added some Sizzix die cut flowers along with a sentiment to complete the card.

Hope you will give this technique a try.

Paris Flea Market Card

This card features a variety of techniques.

The flowers are punched mixed media paper altered with Color Burst pigment powders and Liquid Metals. The centers are punched from Paris Flea Market Pink paper. A dot of Liquid Pearls Silver Pearl adds a final touch to each center.

The panels are created using my 6x6" Gelli Arts Printing Plate. Click HERE for details on creating your own paper lace mat art panels.

The largest panel was also created using the Gelli Plate. I ran a piece of black paper though a Darice Damask embossing folder. I laid the panel into the paint on my Gelli Plate to create a negative image for printing.

I also used a scrap of painted paper lace mat as an embellishment. I added dots of Liquid Pearls Silver Pearl along the edge.

Paris Flea Market Corset Card

I created this card using elements from my Paris Flea Market Club Scrap kit.

The paper lace mat is transformed into a corset with the addition of pale pink ribbon.

The 4.25x5.5" white card base is layered with a master board panel and the beautiful shimmer pink paper from the kit.

Color Burst Spin Art card

I love using unique techniques to create art.

On Club Scrap's blog I shared the step by step instructions for creating this style of card using a kid's spin art machine.

I used a slightly different technique when creating this card.

Here's how:

Emboss mixed media paper panel using swirls folder. Rub the side of a white crayon across the raised edges of the panel.

Place panel in spinner and spritz heavily with water. Turn on spinner and tap in small amounts of different Color Bursts powder to areas of the panel. 

Turn on spinner and spritz with more water until desired effect is reached.

Now it it's your turn to take this technique for a spin!

Take a Leap of Faith into the Unknown

I was inspired to join the Take a Leap of Faith Monday challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog by my good friend Hetty. She made some fun cards using a technique she had never tried before and I wanted to join in the fun too!

I took the challenge and made this card using Club Scrap's Paris Flea Market kit.

The technique I decided to try was a tutorial featured on Split Coast Stampers, called the Pleated Skirt Fold. Visit them HERE for details.

Thanks for stopping by!
