Club Scrap Blog Hop - Take Wing


Hello, and welcome to the September edition of the Club Scrap blog hop! This month we're playing with Club Scrap's Take Wing collection. I'm going to show you how to make handmade embellishments for your pages and cards with the stamps and stencil in this month's kit.

If you found your way here from Lisa's blog then you're making your way around the hop! If you're lost or just want to see all of the links in one place, then check out the Club Scrap Creates blog for all your inspiration needs.

I chose to add on the Club Scrap kit to my Lite kit this month because I loved the paper, the stencil, and the stamps so much.  I knew I could get a lot of different uses out of the feather stencil and stamp, so I decided to make my own embellishments to use on my layouts and cards.


I'm sure there are more combinations you could get out of the stencil and the stamp, but I used the stencil and:
  • Traced the feather shape onto the Lime plain paper, cut out, adhered microbeads using Glossy Accents
  • Traced the feather shape onto the Blue Patterned paper and cut out
  • Used ink applicators and the Club Scrap Hybrid inks on the White plain paper and cut out
  • Adhered the washi tape from the Lite kit to the White plain paper and cut out
The feather stamp from the Take Wing Collection Unmounted Rubber is equally as versatile - I used this to:
  • Stamp on vellum using the Club Scrap Ruby ink and cut out
  • Stamp on acetate (I used cheap overhead projector sheets) with StazOn ink in Cotton White
  • Stamp on the Red Translucent paper with VersaMark and heat emboss with silver embossing powder
  • Stamp on the White plain paper with the Club Scrap Peridot, Lagoon, and Sapphire inks to create an ombre effect
I combined these different types of feathers into embellishment clusters and used these on my layout:



and my card:


With both the layout and the card, I combined different pre-made feathers into clusters.  In my layout, I tried to make a visual triangle around the photos and journaling with my feather clusters.  I also made a little tab for my date to live using my Envelope Punch Board - check out my post here on how to make this.


For my card, I let that feather embellished with the microbeads be front and center.  I loved the colors in the patterned paper, but didn't want it to compete too much with the feather embellishments, so I toned it down a bit by layering vellum over it - you can still see the great paper, but it's just a bit more subdued.  I used embossing powder for the main sentiment just to give it a little more impact.  I also let the feathers hang outside the "canvas" of the card because I really liked how that looked - this will probably be a hand delivered card, instead of one I send in the mail.


Try your hand at making your own embellishments with this awesome kit!  I would love to see what you come up with.
