Hydrangea



If you haven't used stencils, don't let them scare you.  They are so versital, you can paste emboss, dry emboss by running it through your die cut machine, sponge it, watercolor with it, spray it and that's what I did with this card, used spray.  Here is how it was made;

1.  Place DWLJ888 Hydrangea on a white paper panel in a large box.
2.  Spray with  purple and green sprays then place a Mixed Media White 3.  Paper panel over the top of the wet stencil and lightly rub.  Lift the panel and this is the on used for the card.  Let dry.
4.  Sponge the flower portion with pink ink and the leaves and stems with green.  
5.  Use colored pencils to shade the flowers, stems and leaves.
6.  Sprinkle randomly with Shabby White Embossing Enamel and heat from underneath so it doesn't blow off.
7.  Tie the bottom with ribbon and glue to a pink card.
8.  Stamp sentiment with black ink on a white oval, sponge with pink ink, layer onto a green oval and outline the word "Joy" with a pink pencil. 
9.  Pop up on card.

Birthday Smiles


This is a fabulous saying and my goal is to age gracefully, smile a lot and embrace every wrinkle that may bring.  We need to be proud of aging and not ashamed because really, what is the alternative?

1.  Color white paper with blue and green inks by rubbing them on your craft mat, spritz with water and tap your paper in it.  Let dry and stamp Birthday Wishes with black ink.  Color Smiles with a white pen.
2.  Paste emboss the right side of a black panel with Flower Lace stencil with Dreamweaver Stencils Embossing Paste and let dry.
3.  Replace the stencil over the image and stipple with metallic pearl paint.
4.  Glue sentiment to the black panel and layer onto a blue and black panel.

Hopping with Stampendous and Scrap Book Adhesives



We have been having are a great time in a collaboration happening all this week with the folks at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and their designers. We've been sharing creative ways to keep it together using Stampendous stamps, stencils, dies and the sticky nature of Scrapbook Adhesives products.

THREE prize packages that contain one each;

Deadline to comment is April 23 by 11:59 pm Pacific time.
Here is my project today;

Sailboat Cling Rubber Stamp Set
2.  The image was cut out using the matching Sailboats Die Cut Set and glued with 3 in 1 Glue, to a card that was stenciled with waves which comes with the Sailboats stamp set, using Denim ink and splattered using a wet brush and Denim ink.
Sailboat Die Set
3.  The waves were stamped on blue paper with Majestic Blue VersaFine ink and embossed with clear embossing powder and cut out using the matching die.  It was then popped up over the bottom of the boat with 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

4.  The sentiment is from the Ocean Wisdom Perfectly Clear Set, stamped on white paper with black ink.  It was then die cut with Fitted Frames A.  Some of the letters were cut off, so I stamped it again on blue paper, glued the white piece over the blue so it would match up, then die cut it again with the larger frame and it worked perfectly!!  This was then popped at the top of the card with 3D Foam Squares.

If you're looking for a great durable heat gun, Stampendous carries the Wagner Embossing Heat Tool which is made my Milwaukee. I've had my Milwaukee for about 10 years and it's still going strong!

Here is my project today;
For my project today I'm sharing a banner made using the Pennant Set from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. To make it I stenciled the flower from the Blossom Duo Set with Dreamweaver Stencils Embossing Paste I colored with yellow, orange and green re-inkers.   To do this I put some embossing paste on my craft mat, added a drop of re-inker and mixed, it's as easy as that.
Above I mixed in yellow re-inker, and below I show the stenil with green tinted embossing paste.


Once dry a button was glued to the center of each flower using 3 in 1 Glue.  

The banner pieces were attached to the rope with 3D Foam Squares.

Here's a closer up picture of the banner.  It has been gloomy and rainy her so I couldn't get a well lit picture and my walls are dark beige which doesn't help!
