PWP stamp review - Wings and Things

Hi y'all

I'm taking an opportunity to share some card samples I've made in the last few months for paper wings productions. I realized that I never got a chance to share them here on my blog.  So - here is the first installment -- Wings and Things!  Hope you enjoy them!


I embossed the Butterfly Panel onto watercolor paper with clear EP, and then used various sprays to create the colorful background. The stampset also includes a sentiment, but I only wanted half of it, so I cut the stamp in half to get more use out of it.  It will be simple enough to put back together on a clear block.  This is also embossed, but using white EP.

Stamps: Butterfly Panel 
Ink: Versa Mark by Tsukineko
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!, Watercolor Paper
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Other: Ink Sprays - various companies, silver flat back beeds, embossing powder in Crystal Clear and Whishper White from Stampin' Up!


I liked the look of the previous card so much that I think the "feel" of it carried over a little to this card.  The crane was stamped and watercolored, and matted with black and then again with the textured gold paper. I also came across this pretty paper from Memory Box (few years old - I'm a big time hoarder of my pretty papers).  I like the flourish (of course) but also the paper's slight wood grain appearance. 

Stamps: Crane Panel
Ink: Versafine (black) by Tsukineko
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!, Watercolor Paper, Gold textured paper (stash)
Patterned Paper: Memory Box
Other: Caran d'Ache watercolor crayons, black grosgrain ribbon, black gemstones

This Wings n' Things card was a result of playing with supplies and the layout just seemed to evolve.  I knew I wanted to use this Home Tweet Home set, but wasn't quite sure how to put it all together.  I used my watercolor crayons again, and found this very sweet Memory Box paper, and the scale of it made it look like the birdhouse was really in a garden setting.  That tiny heart is a Marvy punch and I love using it, but sometimes forget it is in my drawer.  So sweet with the love birds.
