3 Special Lady Cards for Simons Wednesday Challenge


Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge is to do a Lady/Girly project.
It just so happens I had an order for 3 girl cards. 

This first one was for a lady turning 70.  I found my inspiration on Pinterest.
I normally don't do white. I feel like I can't stay clean enough. I usually have ink/paint on me. But the card on Pinterest (found at docrafts.com) really intrigued me. Used my Silhouette, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Stampin Up flower punch, Wild Orchid silver pearls and a Stampin Up stamp sentiment.
 This second card was for a 16 yr old who likes camo and trucks. This was the hardest one!  I printed some camo print (by Shelia Reid at pixelscrap.com) onto red cardstock for the background.  The truck and sentiment is an old Stampin Up set.  I white embossed the sentiment.  Colored the truck with Stampin Up watercolor pencils. Punched the flowers (SU) and edged them with Ranger Picket Fence distress paint.
 This 3rd card is for an eleven year old that loves Paris, American Girls and her favorite color is purple.  This was the easiest one!! I love using my Wild Orchid Flower stash.
My background was created digitally using pages from pixelscrapper.com and Photoshop.  The sentiment is stamped from Glitz Stamps.  The girl is Prima.

 Is that enough inspiration for one day??  I hope you liked at least one of them!!
Have a blessed day!

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.
