Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #16

Hi!
I am excited to share with you from Craft Hoarders Anonymous today.
 
Most paper crafters also love school and office supplies. We love crayons, markers, shaped paperclips, notepads, folders, and more! If you hoard school and office products, get them out! Use them up! Use at least one item that is really a school or office supply on your project. 
Our Sponsors: Heartfelt Creations, Crafty Secrets, Lindy's Stamp Gang
 
This challenge came at the perfect moment -I just started college classes.
I couldn't just carry a plain ole notebook-could I??
 
I altered a composition book using Heartfelt Creations Designer Paper.
I love fussy cutting their paper.  I really didn't want a lot of bulk on top since I will be using it a lot, I fussy cut flowers.  To add some WOW-I distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink and added Bisque liquid pearls
to the centers.  When adding them to your project, put some flat and add dimensionals to some to overlap and add depth.
The pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
 

Now-you've got to head over the Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog and enter Challenge #16 yourself!!  You could win some fabulous prizes!!

Thanks to Gloria for allowing me to guest design with her and her fabulous Design Team!!

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.
