Vintage Angel

Image
Background paper is my new Graphic 45.  My frame was cut with my cricut cartridge: Lacy Labels. My Angel was colored with pencils. A little highlighting with a marker.  I've used my distressing block to rough up the edges of everything.  Sponged some Tim Holtz antique ink.

Multi Media Mini Album Cover

I use school glue stick to glue my 5x6 chipboard to my paper.  This paper came from a kit I bought on my cruise.  I still like to add a lot of my own spin.
 I roll my brayer over top to make sure the glue is evenly distributed & make sure it's sticking.; Then cut each corner off because you are going to wrap the chipboard just like a present.
 I had used my digital image on regular white cardstock.  I printed two & masked the surfboards. I stamped my waves & colored them with my aqua painter.  Then I combined water to some acrylic blue paint & sponged the sky masking them with hand cut clouds.  I wanted a different blue than my marker.
 I stamped my boards & sand using black stazon.  I colored them using multi layers of colored pencils: light orange, dark orange, yellow, white, blue.  I usually finish them off scrubbing them with the white one -it really helps combine the colors. Then I go back with the darkest color & redefine the outline.
To give them …

PSC47 Anything Goes!

Are you ready to CREATE??  Anything goes this week @ The Perfect Sentiment!   This is always a favorite.  The only requirement is a sentiment has to be on the front of your creation.

Our sponsor this week is BUGABOO STAMPS

BE SURE AND CHECK THEM OUT FOR SOME WONDERFUL DIGITAL OR RUBBER STAMPS.


 I'm using a digi from our wonderful sponsor this week:  Bugaboo Digi Stamps. This is Ruby-she sassy isn't she?  I've colored her with my aqua painter & ink -added a little colored pencil. You can't tell it in the photo, but the 40 was coated in Stampin Up glitter gel. 

For the bottom strip I punched lots of flowers and glued them onto black cardstock & then ran it thru my Big Shot with the Swiss dots embossing folder.  I just LOVE that technique.  It mashes all the layers into one.  I did a little doodling with a white gel pen.
I did a new technique that I found on Splitcoaststampers Click Here called Center Step Card.  You definitely want to decorate the inside because you…

WAW 43: Prosper In All Things

Word Art Wednesday
Our verse this week is 3 John 1:2.   This is a prayer I wish on all people.  We could wish for no more: that our health & soul prospers. I immediately thought of a wedding.  When two people are starting their lives as one-I certainly would pray this prayer for them.  I cut the image with my cricut and then sponged around it to create the center. (I've saved the distressed image to use later!)  I outlined it with Stampin Up sparkle gel.  The background paper is SU.
 I cut the FREE Word Art with scissors & added the pearl embellishments.

The Flowers are Wild Orchid. 
Please go to our home site Word Art Wednesday to see our designers creations as well as our sponsor information.  This week: Fred She Said I hope you'll join us this week.   Have a blessed week!!

Easy Mini Album Tutorial

Image
Cut 5 1/8 x 7 inches. Score at every inch (1-2-3-4-5-6)

 You'll corner round your pages. Use red sticky tape to attach your pages to your folds. May need to rerun your bone folder over the creases.  Line the accordian page & using your crop-a-dile cut a hold in each end & attach a brad.


Now we build our post it note holder.  Cut a piece of cardstock @ 5x4. You'll score both short sides & one long side @ 1/2 inch & 1 inch.  You'll cut away 3 of the little boxes.  Add a tap opening at the top with a one inch punch.   Use red sticky tape to fold the box together & attach to the inside cover of your book.

Cinderella goes to the ball

I started my canvas by applying a thin coat of gesso so I could water wash the colors. I used a lot of water and painted blue on the top and green on the bottom.
 Next, I wanted clouds. I cut one out from DP-it was the wrong color.  I grabbed my handy sponge.
 I started sponging blue ink around the cut out & layered -staggered & repeated.
 I used a grass stamp & stamped some on the bottom of the canvas.
 I had bought some punch out sheets from my Stampin Up Demonstrator last year.  She didn't remember the name.  I punched everything out & started layering them on my table to get an idea of how I wanted to lay them on the canvas.
I distressed the carriage and horses so they'd show up better.  Aren't the trees cute? They were punched out too.
All the pieces were applied to the canvas with mod podge.
At the very end I sprinkled glitter onto the mod podge.
I love how it turned out.  My 8 month old Granddaughter is going to love it when she gets a little olde…

This is one of my favorite cards. It's fun, it's purple, it's sparkly! I love it!
I stamped my Market Street Stamp set: Grow with versa mark & embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin Up embossing powder.  The same stamp is my sentiment. I used Really Reasonable Ribbon In lavinder and my flower is from Wild Orchid flowers.  I added a couple of butterflies I fussy cut from K & Co Specialty paper. I Cut my sentiment using a spellbinder die.
I've entered my card in the following challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #54 Purple Pizazz & Ribbon Theme

PSC46: Missing Wings

Image
Missing Wings Our challenge is a missing you sentiment with wings! Fun-right? I'm featuring a cute image from our sponsor this week.   Pattie's Creation.  My sentiment is from Stampin Up. Three little words...
I wanted a close up shot of the wings showing the liquid glitter I used to high light my wings.
I used my aqua painter to color my image.  I just love the softness it brings.  I made a little flower spray with my Wild Orchid flowers and leaf. The beautiful pink ribbon is from SU.
