Cowboy Girl Birthday!







Happy Saturday!
I've designed a custom birthday card.
The request was for a 17 year old girl using cowboy boots.




I hand drew the boot on tan SU cardstock. Ran it thru Big Shot using Sizzix Flourish embossing folder. I inked up one side with SU Bravo Burgundy which created this cool two toned look.

 I used Zig Artist Sketching Pen to outline the boot and draw the heel.
 Next, I applied Metallic Lustre -Fab Fushia with my finger.
Shiny highlights!

                     I knew I wanted to show both boots standing up. I designed a Z-Fold.
                   Started with 10x7 white cardstock. Scored at 2 3/4 and 5 inches.
             Covered with designer paper.
             folded and attached the boots with SU dimensionals.

This is did dots using Liquid Pearl White Opal

Then I decorated with Flourish with a Bling pearls and 
Wild Orchid flowers. 
The sentiments were stamped on tan cardstock and punched the edges with scallop punch.


Thanks for stopping by. Have a terrific weekend!

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.
