Lady Bug PPA135

I was rocking my granddaughter in her bedroom and noticed the lady bugs on her wall.  I realized how easy it would be to make them with punches. ( I'm sure others have been doing it a long time)

 Picked this pack of paper up @ Michael's for 80 cents!

I also used a new technique I learned from my Stampin Up demonstrator-Vicki Cobler.
First I glued a piece of green on the background & ran it thru an embossing folder.  It totally meshes the 2 papers together.

 I cut 2 circles using 1 1/4 inch circle for the lady bug body.  1/2 inch circle for it's head.
 This is one of 3 cards I designed.  I used the sketch from Pals Paper Arts.

The designer papers are worked well with the ribbon I picked up for $1.  As you can see it's very versatile.  Look up close at this last lady bug.  I pressed 3 layers of paper thru the embossing folder.

thanks for stopping by-hope you're inspired to punch some lady bugs!

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

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!!!
