Kraft Butterfly Birthday

  • Stamps –
    • Stampendous Laurel Burch “Cling Flutterbye”
    • The Cat’s Pajamas “Simply Said”
  • Embossing folder – Elizabeth Crafts “Damask”
  • White embossing powder – Stampendous
  • Pentel Sparkle Pop pens
  • Sakura Gelly Roll pens
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Bling cardstock

This was a fun card to make. I started by heat embossing the butterfly stamp with white embossing powder onto Kraft cardstock. Then I colored it with metallic gel pens for a nice shine. Once completed, I fussy cut the butterfly out and popped it up on the embossed kraft panel with dimensional adhesive. I heat embossed the sentiment with white powder onto black. I matted the kraft panel and the sentiment onto shiny blue panels and then mounted the whole thing onto a white card base. Thanks for visiting today.

Smiling Laurel Burch Cat

  • Stamps –
    • Stampendous Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats”
    • Justrite Papercraft, Inc. “Winged Vintage Labels Two & Three”
  • Stencil – from Stampendous Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats” set
  • Dies – Stampendous Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats”
  • Ranger Texture paste – transparent matte
  • Ranger Distress Oxide inks: Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Broken China
  • Ranger Wendy Vecchi Mica ink spray – Buttercup
  • Copic markers
  • Sequins – Doodlebug Designs
  • Bristol and Cardstock

This is a card I entered in the Oregon State Fair Paper Arts competition and it won a first place in the mixed media category. Yay, me! I spent a lot of time layering the Distress Oxide inks and texture paste. The stamp set comes with a stencil that I used, that matches the geometric shapes in the cat stamps. I added the mica spray ink for some shine and contrast.  I colored the cat and butterflies with Copic markers, attached them to the background and finished if off with sequins to repeat the yellow from the spray. I really enjoyed making this card and playing with such a variety of media. Thanks for visiting.

Mixed Media Kitty Card

  • Stamps – Stampendous- Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats”
  • Dies – Stampendous- Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats”
  • Copic markers
  • Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Golden Sleigh Bells, Tibetan Poppy Teal, and Witch’s Potion Purple
  • Art Basics Light Texture Paste
  • Stencil – Stampendous – included in Laurel Burch “Indigo Cats” stamp set
  • Ranger – Dina Wakley Media Mica Spray – Lapis
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents

I began this card by coloring the stamped cat and butterflies with Copic markers and then die cut the images. I created the background by starting with clear gesso, and then applying the texture paste through the matching stencil.

I liked the idea of repeating the triangles in the background that are featured on the cat. I then sprinkled Magicals and sprayed with water and mica spray, spattering more Magicals to create the effect I was aiming for.

I continued to play, moving the color around, but finally left it alone and let it dry! I adhered the images and layered it onto matching cardstock.

I am posting this card to Craft Stamper Magazine’s May Anything Goes Stamping ChallengeHappy Little Stampers May Mixed Media Challenge is “Splats,” so I think this works! I’m also linking back to My Colorful Scoop’s Color May Inspiration Challenge. And one more time, Mom, Happy Birthday! Thanks for stopping by.

Above is a detail showing some of the texture and colors.


Snowy New Year Canvas

  • 6 X 8″ Canvas panel
  • Dies –
    • Simon Says Stamp – “Abby Snowflake”
    • Simon Says stamp – “Melody Snowflake”
    • Memory Box – “New Castle Snowflake”
    • Sizzix – Tim Holtz Alterations -“Mixed Media”
  • Stencil – Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous – “Snowflakes”
  • Stamps – Judikins “Happy New Year” and Stampendous “Snowflake”
  • Faber Castell Whipped Spackle
  • Viva Decor Modellier-Creme – Mother of Pearl
  • Embossing Powder – Stampendous – “Blue Magic”
  • Cyrstal Stickers – Mark Richards Ltd. – Light Blue 5mm
  • Glitter – Stampendous – Crystal Snow, Gold Ultrafine, and Frantage silver crushed glass glitter
  • Ranger Dina Wakley Media Gel Medium – Lots!
  • Ranger Dina Wakley acrylic paints – Turquoise, Sky, Lapis, and White

I used a whole bunch of stuff in order to create the layers for this little canvas! And I used glitter and other shiny stuff that I don’t often use. The Mixed Media Mojo Challenge for January 2016 is to create something with a Winter theme and you can add a glitter twist. new_year_canvas_detail

I layered a lot of different products after the gesso to create a snowflakey, snowy feeling. The pearlescent modeling creme also gave off a nice sheen, as did the glitter and the embossing powder for the sentiment. The whipped spackle also give the impression of snow. I have a lot of snowflake stamps, dies and even a stencil, so it is nice to use them for something other than Christmas cards!

I like the size of this small canvas. It isn’t overwhelming and I am thinking that if I create these for each of the seasons that might be a fun little home decor item.

  • Patterned paper – Bella Blvd. “Color Chaos: Pickle Juice Strandz”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill Basics and BoBunny “Boysenberry Dot”
  • Dies – Spellbinder Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”

‘Tis the season to begin creating all things Halloween! This card features a happy pumpkin with a mouse friend. I colored the stamped iUnderYourSpell-closemage with Copic markers and then layered papers to bring out the various colors in the image. This is also fits the challenge right now at Crafts Galore for a Halloween themed card. This card took me way longer than it should have to construct! I’ve been kind of in a creative slump lately and just not had time to complete a card, so it was a relief to get this put together! Thanks for visiting!

 

 

 


Daisy Birthday for Today

daisybirthday

  • Stamps – Penny Black “Flower Festival” and Hero Arts “Happy Stamp & Cut”
  • Die – Hero Arts “Happy Stamp & Cut”
  • Patterned Paper – Echo Park “Easter Floral” (both sides)
  • Embossing Powder – Stampendous “Sapphire Pearl”
  • Enamel Dots – Bella Blvd. “Punch”
  • Cardstock – Paper Accents

This is a Spring-y Happy card. I tried something different by using a colored embossing powder as an outline for the Copic coloring I did. I had to be careful, because since Copic ink is alcohol based, the color from the embossing wanted to mix in which could cause some muddy colors. Watercolor would have been a smarter route to take. But I made it work! I used the new Hero Arts set for the sentiment die cut and stamp, which I really like a lot! Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by.

 


Little bird for you

gelatobird

  • Dies – Memory Box “Perched Reed Bird” and “Woodland Branch”
  • Stamp – Avery Elle “Oh Happy Day”
  • Patterned paper – Crate Paper “The Pier: Surf Shop” (both sides)
  • Brads – Creative Impressions
  • Embossing Powder – Stampendous – Aqua
  • Faber Castell Gelatos
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

For this clean and simple card, I used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (#153). I die cut the bird from cardstock on which I’d blended several colors of Gelatos with a baby wipe. After it was cut, I added a little more color with Gelatos and blended the colors together until I was happy with the look. I was able to match the color of the bird with my embossing powder, which I was pretty pleased about! I picked up the green in the bird and the patterned paper with the brads.

On another note, as far as I know, I don’t have a chicken stamp! The Shopping Our Stash challenge for this week is to create a card with a chicken image (because it is Chicken Month), or to use another type of bird image. So I opted for this little bird. Thanks for visiting today.
