Winged Vintage Labels Two & Three

Hello Friends,

Thanks for letting me join in on the JustRite Blog Hop! I have been very nervous to join in with the talented Design Team. They are gracious to let me play too. Each month I test stamp all my stamps to make sure that they were manufactured to the way I designed them. This month I stamped them so I could even die cut them! That was fun.

Here is my project for Winged Vintage Labels Two & Three. I wanted to give the impression that the butterfly had just flitted over to the flower. My Winged Wonder Spellbinder Dies are on order. Since they hadn't arrived I cut the butterfly by hand. I used what was in my craft room. The wire is from an old spool of silver craft wire. I slid four beads on and crimped them in place at both ends. Then I gently curled the wire. I used hot glue to glue the beads in place. I used foam tape to mount the butterfly.

For my flower I used bits and pieces. The iridescent glitter toile was secured by green polka dot ribbon scraps with two buttons. The buttons are from my large collection of recycled buttons. My grandma used to cut the buttons off old garments that were no longer wearable. I have continued her collection. Some of the buttons were hers. Below you can see the variety that I found in my button box. I really love the ones with the green patina. I do not know how old those are. Do you use any recycled crafting objects? I'd love to hear what you have found to be useful.

Here is another view to show how the purple flower hovers over the background. Once the project got this far I thought it needed a little more bling and focus. I slipped a silver Wilton doily behind the flower. I was glad that I hadn't firmly secured the foam tape yet. This second photo shows the colors better. (The purples really do match! I didn't have time to go back and take better photos.)

The papers are from my paper hoard. I regularly scour the craft section at Big Lots. Occasionally they will have packs of decorative paper at extremely reasonable prices. The purple is from there. I think the green swirls was from Hobby Lobby. It was in the single sheets.

This was a fun set to stamp with both large and small label shapes as well as words.

Thanks for stopping by. Here is the list to keep going on the fabulous JustRite Blog Hop!

Grace & Peace,
