Thank You God for my Mom



This week at  Inspired Stamps the verse for our challenge is
Psalm 92:4

I'm so thankful for my Mom.  She's been a rock for our whole family at one time or another.
I was diagnosed with cancer January 2005. for the next year my Mom was there for me.
She spent the night in the hospital with me during my week of surgery, took me & picked me up every week for my chemo treatments, she encouraged me when I was down, brought me food when I couldn't cook, cleaned me up when I was sick all over myself, held me on the commode when I didn't have the strength, asked questions of the doctors when I couldn't think straight, best of all-she prayed for me-day and night. 
I could have never had a better caregiver in the world.

Both our birthdays is in January.  The picture on my layout is this past weekend at Outback Steak house celebrating my birthday.  I can't wait till 1/31/13-that's when we'll celebrate her birthday!
 
The paper is from stampin up. Presto pattern. It started off white with embossed words.  I rubbed a couple of different distress inks over it so the embossed words would show up.  I stamped and stenciled on top of that. 
Added a few embellishments and was done. I love how it turned out.
Most of all-I love my Mom!

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.
