Thinking of You Dimensional Card

i

Had some free time today. Made some Thinking of You cards.

I started by dry embossing the yellow cardstock with a Stampin Up embossing folder.  Then I die cut a butterfly from the center.  Put some designer paper behind the cut out with some dimensionals to pop it up.

Most of the work was done!

I then embellished it with some Really Reasonable green ribbon. If you could see if up close-it has some shimmers in it!! 

The sentiment (Stampin Up) is stamped with black archival ink. Punched with stampin up punches and added with dimensionals to add dimension to the card.

I added some designer paper to the die cut butterfly. Punched the butterflies from a Stampin Up die cut folder and added pearls to the centers.  

I love the feel of this card.  Has a lot of interest in the cut out section show casing the designer paper.

DecoArt products rock! Mixed media Birthday card.


I love to combine paint and stencils to make Mixed Media cards. DecoArt products make it easy and fun to do!


I started the card base as a gelli print because I love the consistency you get on the cardstock from paint being applied to it. Then I used stencils and distress inks to add interest to the background.

The flowers and leaves were cut out with my cricut cartridge and then I rolled the paint onto them so the colors would match my background. I stenciled on those as well.  Left a few smaller flowers white and then started layering them getting spread out to the edges toward the bottom of the card.  

The finishing touch was spreading glitter blue with my finger!  Love how it turned out.

Check out DecoArt products for your paintings, cards or mixed media.  Wide variety of Americana paints and a huge selection of stencils!!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking



I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking
I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Gelli plate Valentines


I started by making about 10 different backgrounds with my gelli plate and a handful of Americana Acrylic paints. 

I also used the leftover paint on the roller on some die cut tags and hearts.

I have a stash of ribbon, lace, pearl trim, and flowers thanks to Really Reasonable Ribbon and Wild Orchid flowers!!

You can see my DecoArt stencil coming thru on this first card.


 Wish you could see the sparkle on this adorable troll card!! The background was sealed with DecoArt glitter decoupage!
 This last card is a pocket card.  That way the 11 year old girl that gets this can use the tag for a bookmark. .

Bohemian Elephant with DecoArt


 

 Happy Thursday!

Do you love the bohemian pictures like I do?  I decided to put it on canvas! 

Of course, Using my Mandala stencil from DecoArt had to be incorporated.


The purple paint tones is perfect for the base coat to show off the stencil which was painted in using a pink color.  Then I used my Posca pens in black and white to add the dots.  To finish it off, I added pearls!  It's much more beautiful in person being able to see the dimension of the the pearls!
