PSC 34: Anything Goes!!

This week @ Perfect Sentiments we're opening it up for your creativity. 

The Challenge: Anything Goes with a sentiment on the front! Yep, you read that right! You can create anything you want as long as there is a sentiment on the front. Cards, ATC's, Tags, Altered Art, Home Decor Items, etc.

The Twist: I was going to say no scrapbook pages. However, if you create a scrapbook page that clearly has a stamped sentiment, scripture or quote on it you may enter it. It must be stamped, it cannot be digital and the Title of your scrapbook page does not count.

I was provided a digi image from our sponsor: Limited Run Stamps
 I went a little crazy with the embossing powders-but I love how it turned out!
The race car cupcake & the sentiment I coated in versa mark & embossed with clear powder.  Made them resemble a sticker. Has a shiny finish.
After putting the designer paper down the middle, I wanted something on the edges.  I embossed party hats in silver & the twirls in cherry cobbler.

I loved the digi image so much I decided to do another card!  I've learned a new technique using my embossing folders.  You layer 2-3 pieces of card stock and run them thru the folder and it totally meshes the 2 together and give you texture.


 I got this plastic Happy Birthday off a real cupcake! It's a Perfect Sentiment.

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.
