Canvas and Ribbon Pumpkin Wall Hanging

Hi everyone! I’m back with day two with a wall hanging I created for the Gwen Studios Design Team call! Yesterday I shared a wedding frame and if you would to see that project you can find it HERE.

Since Autumn is right around the corner I decided I wanted to create a pumpkin wall hanging.

I had a banner that I had created a few years ago for a booth at Creativation and doesn’t really go with the decor in my home so I decided I would up-cycle one of the canvas banners and create a pumpkin out of it. This is what it looked like after I pulled off all the decorations.

But I’ll be using the backside of the banner for my project.

I started by mixing a little white acrylic paint to some orange acrylic paint and painting the whole banner.

Once dry I placed and taped the Handcut Blossom Stencil to the banner and applied Extra Heavy Gel over the stenciled area.

I removed the stencil and let the banner dry.

Next I cut approximately 2 inches off of a shim (you can find these at a hardware store) to create a stem for the pumpkin. You can also use a popsicle stick or whatever you have on hand.

I applied a stain to the stem and let dry. You can also speed up the process by using a Heat Gun if you have one handy.

While that was drying I cut three 5 inches of each 7/8″ Faux Cow Print Leather Ribbon and 3/8″ Gray Faux Leather Snake Skin Ribbon. I also cut seven 5 inches and one 20 inches of the of the 3/8″ Black Ribbon.

I laid all of the ribbons on top of one of the black ribbons.

I forgot to mention that I cut a “v” in the larger ribbon and the rest I cut at a angle after I tied all together to create a bow.

I adhered the wooden stem, the 20 inches of black ribbon to the pumpkin and lightly inked over the stenciled image with chalk ink.

I glued the bow to the top of the pumpkin to finish off the hanging. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Have a Happy Heart Tag

Hi everyone! Sorry to be missing in action so to speak but I have been preparing for my trip to Creativation again this year. I’ve been working on “Top Secret” projects for the show.😉 I do have my second project of the month that I created for Momenta that I would like to share with y’all.


I always have an extra tag laying around that I have sopped up the leftover ink from past projects that I always have on my glass tray.  So I grabbed one of those tags from my stash, extra heavy gel, palette knife and the Floral stencil out of the Floral Stencil Value 4 Sheet Pack

I placed the floral stencil on top of the tag and loaded the palette knife with extra heavy gel and applied over the stencil. I didn’t completely cover the tag with heavy gel. Only in random spots on the tag.

While letting the heavy gel dry…which doesn’t take that long… I inked the Love Birds Rubber Stamp with Pink to Orange Ombre Pigment Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock. I kinda cleaned the orange ink off of the stamp and inked it with the pink ink and again stamped onto a piece of cardstock. Since the ink is “juicy” I let it dry before fussy cutting the image.


I raided my scraps of patterned cardstock and adhered midway and at the bottom of the tag. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the stamped image and placed on the tag. Before cutting out the words “Happy” and Heart” from the Hope/Dream/Believe Diecuts I applied an Adhesive Sheet to the back of the an piece of gold metallic cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. Once I cut out the word diecuts I removed the backing from the diecuts and placed midway of the tag.

From the Romance Pack Diecuts I cut the decorative heart bracket with heart out and adhered to the tag.

I finished the tag by adding lace, Ric Rac and gold trim to the bottom of the tag along with three glossy dots. I also added a seam binding bow to the top of the tag.


As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.  If you aren’t following Momenta on their different social medias you can find them at: FacebookInstagram, twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.

Flower Baby Layout

Hi everyone! I’m back today after being gone on vacation! My husband and I spent an extra long weekend at the beach. It was fun but I have to admit that it was as hot if not hotter there in Panama City than at home. All we wanted to do was stay either in the ocean or pool the whole time we were outside…not that was a bad thing to do.😎
I want to share a layout I created from a photo of “Little Miss” when she was around a year old. 

I started by inking my glass tray with Melon and Sunshine Blends Inks , adding water to each ink and placing a 8″x8″ piece of Watercolor Paper ( that I cut down to size) into the ink mixture. Once I had the paper covered I removed and let dry.
I adhered a paper doily with adhesive to the watercolor paper. 
I then placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen onto the watercolor paper and applied Matte Extra Heavy Gel with a Spatula . I removed the art screen and let dry. I inked three scraps of leftover watercolor paper with a mix of water and Sunshine Blends Ink (2 scraps of paper) and Leaf Blends Ink (1 scrap of paper). Once all were dry I adhered two of the watercolor papers horizontally to layout.
 Next I inked the glass tray with Wildberry Blends Ink, added water to the ink, loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture and splattered the watercolor paper. Also I added a piece of ric rac to the watercolor paper.
I inked the Botanical Mini Molding Mat with Leaf Blends Ink and stamped onto the inked Sunshine Blends scrap of watercolor paper. 

Once dry I adhered to the back corner of photo and glued both slightly off center of watercolor paper. 
I placed Crinoline Fabric on the flowers and leaves diecuts from the Book Mark, Tag and PocketJournaling Card, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and Bookplate, Hinges and Label Diecuts and cut out one set of flowers and a leaf. I inked the glass tray with Wildberry, Frog and Sunshine Blends Inks, added water and placed the flowers in Wildberry and the leaf in Frog and one small flower into the Sunshine ink mixtures. Once completely covered I removed and let dry.

I add a brad to center of the flowers, adhered the leaf to back of the flower and to the lower corner of photo. Next I added several loops of green metallic thread to flower. I also added another flower to the top corner of the photo and adhered sequin to center of the flower. 
I inked a chipboard letter “B” with Sunshine Blends Ink an let dry. Next I inked the letter completely with Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad Clear, applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to letter and set with a Heat Tool. I added a Foam Dots to back of letter and placed on the corner of the photo.
Even though the quality wasn’t the greatest when I printed out this photo ( I just couldn’t throw it away) I still think the layout turned out pretty cute! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
