Sketch With A Twist #21-Win Stamp Set


How'd you like to win a beautiful stamp set?  
Click on over to MFP Speedy TV and enter this week's challenge on Sketch with a Twist.

Their stamp set are one of a kind and such good quality.  I love using them.
 My background paper is from Lost and Found.  I stamped the Christmas tree on the cardstock and again on a plain white piece of paper using black stazon.  That way when I popped up the tree it still shows a tiny bit of the outline on the paper.
 After coloring my trees with COLOURSOFT PENCILS - by Derwent.  I then took a paint brush and brushed some white opaque staz-on ink on the edges and sprinkled with glitter.  Turned out beautiful!

I made my own embellishments: punched two different sizes from the same paper line, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set. Stamped the tiny snowflake and punched it and glued in the middle of JOY.

My "stars" are actually the largest snowflake  stamped on vellum with the white opaque ink and then I sprinkled with glitter.

I LOVE this card and the stamp set.  I hope you'll join our challenge for a chance to win and so I can see your card!

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!

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.
