I won and Used some of my prizes!!


I love winning new goodies!!
I received two packages today and just had to break into them and make something!

I used Sizzix embossing folder on all the cards below.  I patted Lavendar ink on the top side of the folder and layed my white paper on top. Ran it thru my Big Shot. 
 LOVE the effect it gave. Almost a distressed/chalk look.
Then just add some Really Reasonable Ribbon to jazz it up!


 I used the Bow Easy ribbon maker from RRR. See below. Quick & easy.
 Make flowers with Heartfelt Creations die. Inked the edges with the same lavendar ink, dabbed some yellow distress paint in the center, to finish it-added some spots of bisque liquid pearls.

 Won all the above goodies from Dottie Seubert!  Very generous!  I used the Sizzix Embossing Folder on my cards.

The ribbon pack below I won from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  They carry top of the line ribbon/twine and other products. 

I'm entering RRR Challenge #112-Purple and Green with Ribbon/Twine

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!
