Happy Birthday to Perfect Sentiments!!!!


We are celebrating our Birthday/Anniversary today!  Thank you for joining us.  We have A LOT planned this week.  So are you ready to get going?

Not only are we celebrating our blog being around for 1 year with wonderful designers, but we're celebrating our generous sponsors! Without them, entering our challenges wouldn't be as fun. Knowing you are eligible for prize makes it sweeter to create doesn't it?

Our Blog Hop begins with a Birthday/Anniversary card.   You pick which style you want-just remember you need the sentiment on the front!

My image is from Stitchy Bear Designs.  I colored her with pencils.  The background paper is from Bella Bella.  I've framed her with a spellbinder.  I wanted a present so I wrapped a piece of cardboard with purple seam binding, added tiny butterflies & pearls to jazz it up.  The rick rack is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Hop along to the following blogs to see what our Perfect Sentiments Team has created to inspire you.

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!

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.
