Clubscrap "Constellations Kit" Blog Hop - Steampunk Keyrings

Club Scrap "Constellations" Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog today and the ClubScrap Blog Hop!!  So glad to have you here.  Well here in Montana, we have been bombared with snow and lots of cold cold COLD weather.  The one good thing about bad weather, keeps me indoors and what better to do than fire up the heater in my scrapshack and get to work.  Another thing about this time of year, the rest of the family is up at ski lessons, giving me an entire day of "me" crafting time - gotta love that!!  This month I was inspired by the two tags included in the Constellations kit along with a star cutout shape from a previous kit.

Steampunk Keyrings

 
Supplies:
Patterned paper (Clubscrap Constellations kit)
Tags/Cutouts
Rubberstamps
Ink pads
Modge Podge
Glossy accents
Embellishments (Charms, gems, etc)
Key Ring and Clasp
 Instructions:
Start with a matboard tag/cutout.  Apply modge podge to tag and adhere to pattern cardstock (Clubscrap).  Let dry.  

Trim cardstock to shape of tag.  

Repeat with other side of tag. Ink edges of tag.
Punch holes into tag/cutout for attaching key ring or hang other jump rings with embellishments from the final project. 

Stamp the sentiments that will be used on one side of the tags, onto a scrap piece of cardstock.  Trim out to fit project size and ink edges. 
Apply glossy accents over the entire area on one side of the tag. 
Now dig out all your fun charms and steampunkish goodies.
Carefully add charms, embellishments, and sentiments into the glossy accents.  Sit the project aside to dry, this will take a long time.

Once side one is completely dry, repeat with other side of tag.  You may need to put shims under tag to ensure tag lays flat while drying, check on it occasionally to make sure charms don't slide into the wrong spots.
 
Once project is completely dry, you can finish project by adding eyelets, key rings, jump rings with charms, etc.
Here is the final versions of each of the three key rings, front and back.

Club Scrap "Reunion" Blog Hop

 photo reunionbloghopbadge_zps50fef64f.jpg

Welcome to my blog today!!  So glad to have you here.  I have so been enjoying the holidays and taking time with my family and friends.  Anyways I have a co-worker who is retiring and today was her last day at work and so I made her a nice wall plaque and wished her congratulations on the next phase of her life.  

Supply List:
Blank canvas
Dylusions Spray ink
Reunion kit cardstock
Rubberstamps
Flowers
Pearl Pen
Gems

Instructions:

Spray blank canvas with pink spray ink.  Let dry.
Spray canvas with a bit of chocolate brown spray ink.  Let dry.
Ink edges of canvas with ink pad.
Grab a stencil and lay onto canvas.  Spritz with water.  Use papertowels to quick dry up the water.  Remove stencil and use paper towel to dry again.  This will remove some of the ink previously spritzed onto the canvas giving a ghosting effect.
Print the sentiment 2 times, once on cream cardstock and once on light blue cardstock.  Cut out the sentiments as shown and ink edges with light brown ink:

Stamp images onto cardstock, trim them out, and ink the edges:

Modge podge sentiments and images to the canvas.   Add flowers, gems, and pearl pen accents.
