Burned Cork Gift Card Tins

Burned Cork Gift Card Tins

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a fun way to alter metal tins. As both the sports season and school year come to a close, I find myself giving a lot of gift cards to the teachers and coaches that have helped my daughters over the year. Instead of tucking the gift cards into an envelope, I decided to upcycle some metal tins. I used some of my favorite Paper Wings Productions stamp sets and a wood burning tool to embellish pieces of cork. I love using my wood burning tool on soft materials like cork and leather.

Hello Kitty Metal Cookie Tins Before Altering

Here's what my metal tins looked like before I started this project. The bottom half of the tins are a solid color, so I chose to leave that portion of the tin untouched and focus my efforts on covering the top of the tin.

How to Apply Fabric Tape to Metal Tins

Metal can be tricky to cover with paint, so instead I applied a strip of fabric tape around edge of the lid.

How to Stamp on Cork with Archival Ink

Next, I cut pieces of cork to size and stamped designs onto them using archival ink.

How to Use a Wood Burning Tool on Cork

Once I was happy with the designs, I used a wood burning tool to trace over the stamped images.

How to Attach a Burned Cork Piece to a Metal Tin

Finally, I simply used hot glue to attached the burned cork pieces to the top of the metal tins. I love the look of burned cork. I plan to wrap a piece of colorful ribbon around each tin before I give them away. Markers work great on cork, and would be a great way to add color to the burned designs.

There's Hope Card

Hello friends. Larissa here today with a fun technique card.  It is a very easy technique as well.

I started off stamping the flower stamp on the card along with the sentiment in VersaMark Ink and Heat Embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. It was hard to get on camera since is was clear on white cardstock. You can kind of see the flower below.


I picked several colors of Distress Inks out and grabbed some sponges.
I sponged the color across the card in rainbow order.


I continued down the piece of cardstock making sure to blend each other color into each other. I also used a tiny strip of felt I had laying on my desk to hold the card stock down so I would not smudge it with my fingers. 


Once I was done blending the colors I dropped some water drops on it and wiped them off with a paper towel. 

I adhered the card front onto a mat then on to the card base. To finish off my card I added a few clear drops around the card. Again hard to see.

Other Products:White and Black Cardstock

Bless Your Heart

Hello friends. Larissa here with you today. I created a card today using one of my favorite sayings. 
So lets get started. 


For this card I used: 


Other Products Used:
White Cardstock
Versafine Onxy Black Ink
Copic Markers
Black Gel Pen
Blue Ribbon 
Pattern Paper from my stash

I stamped the saying and the blue bonnets on a piece of cardstock and colored the images using Copic markers. 
I then went around the image with a black gel pen making little stitch marks. 


I adhered the images on a piece of pattern paper and then onto a white card base. 


To finish off the card I added a piece of blue ribbon I tied in a bow. 

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to check back to see what inspiration the DT team has for you this month. 



Have a wonderful day friends.

DT post: Bluebonnets and Butterflies Canvas

Hi Scrappers,

This is Veronica from www.vickyscrappingpassion.blogspot.com  sharing with you a Canvas I modified with wings-cling-stamp-setflowers-cling-stamp-set, and  the wildflowers-cling-stamp-set:




I used:
wings-cling-stamp-setflowers-cling-stamp-set PWP

Moments like this, Canvas Kit, Quick Quote


In short, I distressed the die cuts using the powder puffs mocha mama. I added some pearl watercoloring in shades of blue. Then, I added some stamped sentiments to the flourish die cuts and to the heart cut outs using powder puffs or distress oxide inks. For the butterfly die cuts, I stamped the wings using distress oxide. I also inked the edges of the canvas. The rest, I just followed the instructions of the kit.  For more details, here is the SnapGuide with more instructions.


Here some closeups:




I love the details the butterfly wings stamps add to these die cuts.





I also added some blue watercoloring to the big butterfly overlay. It blends everything together with bluebonnets in the pictures.

I hope you enjoyed my canvas and visit my blog:  www.vickyscrappingpassion.blogspot.com.
