Pink Paislee's Guest ~ Tool School 54

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, September 15, 2011 @ 11:35 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I'm very honored to have been invited by Rebecca Cross, Owner of Pink Paislee, to share a few projects during the months of September and October on the Pink Paislee blog! Today, I am sharing this project on the Pink Paislee site and would be tickled pink if you would visit me there as well and check out ALL the awesome DT inspiration! :)  I was assigned: Tool School category which is right up my crafty alley! I love using a variety of papercrafting tools while creating especially die templates. Using die templates along with various papers from the Vintage Vogue Collection and Mistables, I made this Painters Tray wall hanging for my sweet sister Tina featuring photos of her and a few of my brothers and sisters taken well before I was even born!
Starting with the upper left hand corner, using two different sized Spellbinders Blossom die templates, I made a layered flower embellishment, topped it off with a beautiful Vintage Vogue ~ Tin Tile and added a few leaves that were cut using three different sized Spellbinders Nested Leaves die templates. To create the pretty background panel, I sponged PTI Aqua Mist ink and Ranger Frayed Burlap ink onto a piece of patterned paper from the Mistable Collection, revealing the gorgeous embossed detail.
In the next panel, I made a fun little pennant banner using Spellbinders Nested Pennants die templates and a little scalloped heart embellishment. The word LOVE was cut from a piece of theVintage Vogue ~ Beauty Parlor patterned paper which is jam packed with words that may be easily used in any of your projects! To make the fun bottle cap embellishment, I used a Spellbinders Classic Circle Large die template to cut the 5 cent image from a piece of Vintage Vogue ~ Corner Boutique patterned paper. Worked like a charm ;) Notice the darling old-time ticket? That little beauty is from the Vintage Vogue ~ Ephemera pack which is jam packed of all sorts of goodies!
The next panel features one word that says it all "family"! Using letters from Wood Shop Alphabets ~ Timber and a bit of Ranger Spun Sugar Distress ink, I spelled out family. These wooden letters are so fun to work with! You can either leave them "raw" and use as is or easily add color by misting, painting, sponging, etc... I dotted the "i" using a pretty bejeweled button from Vintage Vogue ~ Jumbo Buttons then adhered it to an ornate layered label that was made using Labels Seventeen die templates and showcased it on a piece of sponged Mistable patterned paper.
Last up is the lower right hand side bottom panel and corner embellishments. The panel features a die cut spool embellishment which was made from Balsa wood using a die template from MFT Stamps. This coordinates wonderfully with the silhouette embellishment from Vintage Vogue ~ Chipboard Pops, the wooden spool top from Vintage Vogue ~ Spool Buttons and the Vintage sewing machine image from the Vintage Vogue ~ Ephemera pack. The background layered label was made using Spellbinders Grand Labels Four die templates. The corner has a sweet collection of layered flower embellishments made by combining patterned paper from both Vintage Vogue ~ Dress Shop and Vintage Vogue ~ Eau De Parfume. The two smaller flowers are held together with brads from Vintage Vogue ~ Brad Mix and the largest flower features a purple jewel button from Vintage Vogue ~ Jumbo Buttons. The Vintage Vogue ~ Jumbo Buttons are flat backed, making it super easy to adhere them to your project with ease. Using Papertrey Ink's Turing a New Leaf Collection die templates and vibrant Vintage Vogue ~ Taffeta  patterned paper, I made some foliage.
Shown in the photo below are the Spellbinders die templates I used to create the various embellishments:
some more,
and here is the spool die template from My Favorite Things and the Papertrey Ink:
Pink Paislee products used:
It's so fun to mix and match die templates from various manufacturers and may be cut using a variety of die cutting machines. I used a Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine but these die templates are also compatible with a Sizzix Vagabond, Big Shot and Provo Craft Cuttlebug to name a few. I hope you enjoyed my project today! Thanks so much for visiting and if you get a chance, please be sure to visit the Pink Paislee blog :) Be Sweet!
