Star Spangled Day Year Round

I hope you have enjoyed all the fabulous projects the design team has shared this week using the star tool! For my project I made a red, white, and blue lantern set.

These would be fun to use as part of a table centerpiece (for this holiday or anytime of the year!) or you could add small electronic tealight candles and light up the night! I used the Lettering Delight Boom De Yada files and cut the lantern pieces with my Silhouette machine.

After the lanterns were assembled I punched three stars for each lantern using the star 25 tool, the star 25 bubble caps, and glitter paper. A row of stars and a few additional embellishments were added to each lantern.

Here is a closer look at each of the lanterns.

Fourth of July Hair Clips!

Hi, It’s Crystal here today to show you how I used a few Epiphany Craft Tools to create hair clips for my daughter for the Fourth of July!

To start I just grabbed some hair clips to use for the base of my hair clip. Then I gathered any ribbon or paper which had red, white, or blue on it.

I used the Shape Studio Round 25 with the Bubble Cap Round 25 for one of my hair clips. For this hair clip I folded the ribbon under the flower to try and make it look like it was a firework.

The second one was made using the Shape Studio Square 25 with the Bubble Cap Square 25. I wanted a simple hair clip so I just stuck to two different patterns of paper and alternated them.

My last hair clip was a small one which would be perfect for holding hair to the side. I used the Shape Studio Butterfly with the Bubble Caps Butterfly.

Thank for stopping by today hope I was able to give you some new ideas for using your Epiphany Craft Tools!

red, white and blue

epiphany crafts tools always give my projects the extra they need, the finishing touch.

as we celebrate our country’s independence i wanted to make something to decorate a bookshelf in my living room. so i grabbed a set of clipboards and decided i would try my hand at a mixed media project. i also wanted to keep each one in a single color family (as much as possible)

4th of july clipboards_10

the first clipboard i grabbed a piece of mixed media paper and used a texture paste and stencil to do the words. after that was dry i used a screen ink and screen for the stars. then i water colored over it and on the paper edges. final step a pinwheel with a bow and heart bubble cap top.

the next clipboard was the red one. i used a screen ink and screen. water colored lines on the scalloped ribbon. i cut a piece of paper to make it stand out from the floral paper i backed it with some dotted bazzill paper and used cardboard to make it pop. to finish it off i used the same dotted paper with glitter glued on to make the flag pennants with the pennant tool.

finally the white clipboard. i did a word screen and screen ink over the full page in white. then a whiteish texture paste star in the center, and added a glitter border.

then i used the minc pen to write my quote and minc’d it gold, cut it out and glued it on. i added some ribbon to the top and the final pop was the chevron pieces. to make these i used the chevron stamp set and the chevron tool. first i stamped the chevron stamp with embossing ink then used gold embossing powder. to finish them i used the chevron tool to cut them out and then glued them in place.

Kim Klinkovsky-Intro

Hi everybody! I’m, Kim Klinkovsky (pronounced klin-kov-ski). I’m a wife of a US Army Veteran for 20yrs and a stay at home mom of four kids: one daughter in college and three teenage sons 16, 13, and 13 (including a set of twins).  We live in beautiful Southern Colorado with a stunning view of the great Rocky Mountains.  I’ve been making handmade cards for about 14yrs, but I’ve been crafty all my life.  I love making cards, and documenting our lives, trips, and special moments through scrapbooking. I’m a collector of pretty paper, ribbon, and I love to play with tools and all the crafty stuff. Many of my cards have been published in several craft magazine publications and I’ve won several blog challenges too.  I enjoy interacting and learning from other artists, teaching others how to craft, and sharing ideas. I am so honored to be on the Epiphany Crafts Design Team and can’t wait to share my creations with you.  I hope you like what you see and want to follow my social networks to see more of my crafty adventures:
