Lady Bug PPA135

I was rocking my granddaughter in her bedroom and noticed the lady bugs on her wall.  I realized how easy it would be to make them with punches. ( I'm sure others have been doing it a long time)

 Picked this pack of paper up @ Michael's for 80 cents!

I also used a new technique I learned from my Stampin Up demonstrator-Vicki Cobler.
First I glued a piece of green on the background & ran it thru an embossing folder.  It totally meshes the 2 papers together.

 I cut 2 circles using 1 1/4 inch circle for the lady bug body.  1/2 inch circle for it's head.
 This is one of 3 cards I designed.  I used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts.

The designer papers are worked well with the ribbon I picked up for $1.  As you can see it's very versatile.  Look up close at this last lady bug.  I pressed 3 layers of paper thru the embossing folder.

thanks for stopping by-hope you're inspired to punch some lady bugs!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

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.
