PTT Anything Goes!! Birthday Card

 
Today is Anything goes at Party Time Tuesday!!
 
I love making my own flowers!
Heartfelt Creations has a wonderful flower die that enables you to make the most awesome looking flowers!  You can use plain cardstock and add some sprays and inks and before your very eyes-
Beautiful flowers!
The purple ones I used a left over piece of packaging.  One side had a slick side. I sprayed Lindy's Stamp Gang inks, shaped the petals and allowed them to dry good before layering them together.
I die cut some of them from vintage sheet music paper in my stash.
The centers in the large flowers are loose beads glued in the center.  The small flowers have
a single flat back pearl from Wild Orchid Flowers.
 The paper line is from Heartfelt Creations.  I took advantage of the sentiments that are included in the package.  A piece of white seam binding completed the front.

We have lots more inspiration over at Party Time Tuesday.  You could win a prize-so hop on over there and enter the challenge today!!

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.

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!
