I also have some nature inspired picture frames to share with you today.
I made each of these frames as part of an ongoing online class I am taking called VerDay. The class is completely online and is being taught by the owners of Ten Seconds Studio, Cheryl and Megan Darrow. The class has been so much fun! Out of respect for us that are taking the class, I will not provide technique details, but I will provide details about the finishing touches following each picture frame. Click here for class information.
Picture frame purchased unfinished from Michael’s. Dragonfly is rustic tin from my stash and the bottle cap and letter type embellishments are from Darice . Image is a piece of decorative card stock from stash.
Picture frame purchased unfinished from Michael’s. Faucet knobs/handles are from Tim Holtz’s Ideaology line. Rain boot image is a decorative piece of card stock from scrap stash. Stamped sentiment is from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous. Sentiment was embossed with Versamark and Ranger Superfine Detail black embossing powder.
Picture frame purchased from Michael’s. Songbird image and sentiment are both from Stampendous. Songbird is colored with Distress Ink markers from Ranger. Dogwood twigs are from my garden. Bird nest and eggs are from Michael’s. Eggs were colored blue with Alcohol Ink Fillable Pen and Stream Alcohol Ink, both products are from Ranger Ink.
Picture frame purchased unfinished from Michael’s. Watering can is rusted tin shape is from my stash. I punched a hole using a Crop O Dile in the watering can and attached via a jump ring a Teresa Collins facet. I used Sail Boat Blue Alcohol ink by Ranger Ink to custom color the facet.

Picture frame purchased unfinished from Michael’s. Butterfly embellishments are Vintaj brass blanks. Butterflies were embossed with a Vintaj Deco Etch embossing folder and painted afterwards with Vintaj Patina paint. Once dry, butterflies were sanded and painted with an acrylic brown paint and rubbed off before dry to create an aged appearance. Butterfly bodies are made from dark annealed stove pipe wire from stash and adhered with E6000 adhesive purchased from Michael’s. Focal image is a Tim Holtz stamp from his Stampers Anonymous line. Image is stamp onto Kraft card stock with Sepia Archival ink from Ranger.
I hope you enjoyed today’s picture frames. They were so much fun to make. I would highly recommend Ten Seconds Studio to anyone interested in creating patina finishes for their art. The possibilities are endless. Have a great weekend.

Good morning blog friends. How are you? The weather remains bone chilling here in Minnesota. Temperatures dropped below zero Sunday and have yet to rebound. Low temperatures combined with sustained winds has created dangerous windchill’s. Today’s featured tag includes warm thoughts of Spring which I truly believe really is just around the corner. The tag’s feature dragonfly image is from Stampers Anonymous Classics #1 stamp set.
Background of manila tag was first lightly inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger.
Background of tag was then stamped with Ranger Collage Glue Stick and heat set afterwards till no longer tacky. Stamp used is Stampers Anonymous Wallpaper & Wood by Tim Holtz.
Next, I lightly applied Walnut Stain Distress Ink by Ranger to further enhance the wood grain background.
I then used Versamark Embossing ink and Ranger’s Black Superfine Detail Embossing Powder to stamp background sentiments from Stampers Anonymous Just Thoughts stamp set by Tim Holtz.
Next, I used Versamark Embossing ink and Ranger’s Black Superfine Detail Embossing Powder to stamp the dragonfly from Stampers Anonymous Classics #1 stamp set by Tim Holtz onto a scrap of Kraft card stock.
I then applied various Distress Inks by Ranger for Tim Holtz: Peeled Paint, Salty Ocean, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain.
Next, I used a Tonic Distresser tool to distress the edges of both the tag and the dragonfly. I enhanced the distressed edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink by Ranger.
Applied dragonfly image to tag using pop dots.
Attached Ideaology findings for interest: philosophy tag, mini pin, paper clip, file tab, and plaquette. Plaquette was colored with Adirondack Alcohol Inks: Lettuce, Ginger, and Sailboat Blue.
Lastly, used a length of Stampin’ Up seam binding ribbon colored with Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress Stains by Ranger. Attached to tag along with a length of coarse jute string.
Hope you enjoyed today’s tag. Thank you for stopping by. Please stop back again as I have a special blog feature in store for February (the reason why I have been a bit quiet here in posting). Have a great day and please feel free to leave me a comment about your thoughts on today’s featured tag.
Good evening everyone. I am back tonight with a couple more cards to share. Today’s featured holiday cards are from previous years before I had a blog.
This card was inspired after one of Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of Christmas.
This card was one of my first pop up cards using the 3D Sleigh Die from Karen Burniston by Sizzix. Cardinal is a Martha Stewart Punch. Sentiment, Reindeer, wiener dogs, and jingle bells were cut with my Cricut.
Thanks for stopping by today. I invite you to stop by tomorrow as I will feature a Paperie In Bloom Bonus project. Have a great night!
Good evening blog friends. How was your Monday? I had the day off today from work today and am recovering from our recent 24 snowfall of 18 inches that fell from late Saturday evening through Sunday. Apparently, this snowfall was the Twin Cities 3rd largest snowfall total on record. In between shoveling, I made a batch of cookies to send to my dad and made a few holidays cards pictured below.

Good evening everyone. I feel like it has been forever since my last post, 6 days! Yikes!!!!. I sincerely apologize, for my attention has been focused on our design and finishes for our lower level. We are meeting with a few more contractors later this week and hopefully afterwards, we can begin to move forward and implement our design. Once construction resumes and remaining finishes are selected…..I will then resume my regular posting schedule of 2-3 posts per week. I have so many fun things planned for the upcoming holiday season. In the meantime, I have a few more metal embossed Christmas cards to share. They were very easy to create and assembled in under 30 minutes.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I am going to try real hard to wrap up my planned Paperie In Bloom projects this weekend, so I can return to my regular posting schedule next week. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Good evening everyone. I hope your week is going well so far. Today, I have a couple of metal embossed Christmas cards to share with you.
I love to work with metal and love the WOW factor that metal provides. Today’s featured cards are super simple to make using a piece of metal and an embossing folder.
For the first card, I used Brrr Blue Ten Seconds Studio Art Metal. I embossed a metal sheet using Tim Holtz’s Vintage Holiday Sizzix embossing folder. Once embossed, I used a Ten Seconds Studio burnishing block to reveal the silver metal core and wiped sanding dust away with a damp cloth. I followed the same steps for the second card, except I used Golden Nugget Ten Seconds Studio metal and added a gold bow and 2 silver jingle bells for accent. I literally made both these cards in about 20 minutes. These cards would be great if you needed to make a large number. Exclude the bow and bells and both cards would be suitable for stand postage.
Thank you so much for stopping by. Please stop back again soon for more inspiring ideas. I am in the midst of planning and prepping my homemade Christmas gifts to make list. Have a great day!
Good afternoon everyone. How is your week going? Today, I have my version of Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2012 for November to share with you.
Click here to see and read Tim Holtz’s tutorial in order to make this month’s tag.
My tag above includes a few variations from Tim’s. In lieu of the the fall foliage he used in the lower right hand corner, I included a small pumpkin instead. Pumpkin was die cut out of Kraft Core card stock using Tim’s mini pumpkin Movers & Shapers die. I distressed the pumpkin and added Orange Marmalade Distress Ink to enhance the pumpkin’s color. I tied a small piece of jute string to the pumpkin’s stem and added a Vintaj leaf cluster. I applied a small amount of Moss Vintaj Patina paint to the pumpkin’s leaves for added color.
Tim’s tag did not include any ribbon tie embellishments. I instead chose to add a Vintaj trinket leaf cluster and an Ideaology type charm to the tag’s ribbon tie. I attached the embellishments with a Ideaology trinket pin.
This tag was a lot of fun and as usual was chocked full of new ideas and techniques to try. Come join the fun. Upload your entry to his site for a chance to win some great goodies.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I will be back on Friday with another inspiring project idea. Have a great week.
