Cards Galore 2

Fall is here!  Wanted to make some card to reflect the beautiful colors our Lord provides during this season.  Chocolate Chip has become one of my favorite colors.  It goes with so many other colors.  Been tring to figure out what to do with all my scraps???  Do you have a millon like me?  I took out one of my scrap boxes & went to town!  Most everything you see here had already been cut-embossed-stamped.  I'm in love with distressing -so I did distress alot of it while working on them.

This stampin up stamp set is one of my favorites.  I used colored pencils & blender to fill it in.

Doesn't this antique lace make this card?  I so love it!

Extremely simple

I distressed a pale yellow ribbon on this one to match the distress look.

I had a small scrap of Tim Holtz paper that I added to this one.  I forgot to mention the chocolate chip paper I embossed with the swiss dot from stampin up.

Love, love, love vintage buttons!  Founds a little store uptown Rocky Mount that has them in jars for a nickle a piece!

DecoArt Americana Paint is best for Gelli Prints

I love making gelli prints.  I've used a variety of types of paints.  The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints.  The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate. 
 On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose, Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting them on the plate. This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.  New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.

 This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!!  Except you created it yourself! The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes. I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
Entering the following challenges:Mojo Monday challenge 464-last card is usi…

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!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
