Easter Challenge @ Perfect Sentiments

I am so ready for spring!  Many things happen-trees & flowers start blooming, colors start appearing in our scenery, and best of all:  we celebrate Jesus rising from the grave! 

So this weeks challenge @ Perfect Sentiments our challenge is to feature an Easter sentiment.  The twist?  To use 3 colors from this inspiration photo:


Look at those spring colors!!

 If you participate you will be entered to either win a FREE Digital Image from Shelly's Images or be picked for Perfect Sentiments Top 3.  There are tons of very inspiring entrants-hope you'll be one of them!



 Here's my card:

Started with the blue textured paper from Stampin Up. Punched the edging with Martha Stewart punch. Then  I stamp versa mark and embossed with dazzling diamonds embossing powder from SU. (you can't really see the shimmer-but it's there!)  I printed my Easter Sentiment on my computer & using decorative scissors to cut around it-after I lightly sponged pink around the edge of the white cardstock.  The butterflies are from SU diecut.

I love how it turned out.  Looks like spring to me!

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.
