Dream……

Dream……

Dreaming of what I’d like to do one day……there are allot of things on my list.  One of my biggest dreams is to get to a point where I could apply and be accepted to join a Design Team.  I was on a Design Team for a local on-line scrapbooking supply store a few years ago and had a blast.  To get onto some of the big name DT’s you have to have a blog following, an active YouTube channel with followers…..all things I dream of making happen again one day.  I haven’t recorded a YouTube tutorial for a while now and need to get a tripod in order to produce them on a more professional basis…..another thing I dream of having happen.  🙂

Here’s a page I did this afternoon that I really love!!  There are a few of my pages and projects I create that I really love, and this is one of them.  I’m very happy with how it turned out.  I used a bunch of supplies from Limor Webber’s online store called Limor Webber Designs.  I LOVE her store and she carries the absolute coolest and versatile products!!  If you’ve never paid her a visit, you really need to. For this page, the background was created by first of all adhering random torn pieces from my old dictionary using my Matte Gel medium.  I then put on a layer of Gesso over it and wiped it back off the book pages for the most part.  I tool two of my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals called Tiffanylou’s Blue and Cotton Candy Pink. I used the blue first and I took a small amount and put it on my craft mat and spritzed it with water to make a water color.  I added more water and then allowed it to drip off my craft mat onto my page before the Gesso was dry.  I tipped it page up and added more spritz’s of water to make the color drip down the page. I added a bit more powder to my craft mat, more water and added brush strokes here and there to have more of the page covered in the color.  The rest of the mixture I again allowed to pour over the page and I added a bit more water to make it a bit more concentrated at the top of the page.  I heat set the page and then added the pink onto the page only using a brush to apply the color.  Once that was dry I took one of my new 6×6 Prima stencils (item #575946) called Stone Wall, my Faber Castell Gelato in Squid Ink, a stencil brush and applied the stencil to the page.  Loved the subtle pattern I obtained with this stencil.  I then took my new Indigo Blu Bubbles Background stamp and my Faber Castell PITT Big Brush pen in black and used that to ink a portion of the stamp and used it randomly around the page.  I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and dry brushed on some Gesso, heat set it….some of the blue and pink magicals that I once again mixed into a water color paint and dried it once again with the heat gun.  I had fussy cut three butterflies from a piece of designer paper I had from BoBunny and adhered the cardboard and the butterflies to the page. I added one of the Prima Junkyard Findings clock faces to the cardboard.  I took my Stabilo All pencil and traced around some of the bubbles, applied a small amount of water and created some depth and emphasis to some of the bubbles I’d stamped onto the page.  LOVE that pencil!!  I used the “dream’ sticker from my Heidi Swapp sticker package and outlined it with my Pilot PermaBall pen.  I distressed the edges of the page with my black Faber Castell Gelato and it was done!

Cards, cards and more cards!!

Standard

Hey there my blogging family!  I was at our cabin for a few days last week and decided it was time to make some cards again…..I had a blast!!  One of these days I’ll figure out how to do the delayed blog post thingy so a new post comes up every day or so……but ya, that’s not going to happen today, so I’ll just put them all into one post…..lol.  The paper and most of the embellishments used on these cards were all purchased from Leanne’s store called Scrapn’ With Flair…..check it out….she has great prices!!

Have I mentioned how much I love my I Am Roses roses???  I really like how this card turned out and love the shabbiness of it (is that even a word??  lol).  I used papers from the BoBunny Country Garden line and the Weathered design.  I love this paper line and had such a hard time cutting into it!!!  It’s so crazy, but I feel like I have this hoarding vault full of all my favorite stuff and I never want to use it…..soooo silly!!.  I used a strip off both sides of the paper for this card and covered the seam with a piece of lace I found at our local Thrift Store…….I LOVE that store!!  I’ve got so much stuff from there for just a few dollars, it’s crazy!!.  I distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distress tool and then inked the edges with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Weathered Wood…..one of my favorite inks.  I attached a butterfly from a package from Close To My Heart and then grabbed my Gesso and randomly applied some to give the card an old weathered look.  It doesn’t show in the picture, but I applied some of my Close To My Heart Liquid Glass to the two colored butterflies on the paper……I really love how that stuff just adds to the dimension on a card!

So…….how ’bout this one…..very mixed media…..I really like it.  It’s not for everyone, but  I’m really having fun with the whole mixed media world lately.  For this card I started with a Kraft cardstock base and then layered on paper from the BoBunny Timepiece line and the Country Garden line.  I tore the layers and then distressed the edges with my fingernail and inked them with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo…..another one of my go-to favorites!  I used my Stampin’ Up! Scallop Trim Border punch, some burlap pieces and some jute twine.  The butterfly is from the 12 x 12 Chipboard add-on to the BoBunny Country Garden line and it has a bunch of very cute elements to be used!  I took my texture paste and randomly smeared it over the card and burlap and then added a bit of white Gesso to the top of it to give it more of a white look.  Once I was all done with the card I grabbed my Tsukineko Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray and gave the whole front of the card a spritz with it……it leaves a very cool raised texture to the card front once dry.  Along the left side of the card there is also half a doily pasted on that’s been spritzed with some of my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Flat Fabios (sooooo love these spritz’s!!!) in Caribbean Blue, Luscious Lime and Mango Mania.

This is more of a traditional card I made for the Alphabet Challenge on SCS.  The letter for this week was C.  I used the BoBunny Timepiece paper and then took my stamps from a new set made by “darkroom door” called Tick Tock.  I stamped all three clocks onto cardstock using my Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distress tool and inking the edges with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  I also inked the entire edge of the card base with the Vintage Photo as well.  I added some of my Close To My Heart Liquid Glass to the edges of two of the clocks and to the swirls on the card front.  The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and the silver butterfly was from my stash as were the brown flat-back pearls. 

 

This is the last card I made….. 

 

The butterflies were stamped onto a piece of paper towel and then spritzed with my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Flat Fabios in Caribbean Blue, Luscious Lime and Mango Mania.  I also took the other half of the doily I’d already spritzed and used it on the side of this card.  I added some lace that I died using the spritz’s and a lace bow.  I took my texture past and smeared quite a bit of it on the front of the card and then spritzed it as well.  I added some stickles to the wings of the butterflies and then traced around them with my white pen to make them pop.  I distressed the edges of the card with my Distress Tool and then inked them with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Broken China.  I added three I Am Roses roses to the front.  These three roses were already inked with the black on the edges of the petals, so I took my spritz’s in the Caribbean Blue and the Mango Mania and gave them a couple of sprays to tie them into the card better.

That’s it for my very long post…….if you’ve stuck around this far, thank you!!!  As always I love to read your comments/feedback.  I’m off the see what else strikes my fancy……till next time!

Masculine

Standard

Hi blog friends.  I always have a time making a masculine card!  This is one that I think turned out pretty good and could work for a masculine card I think.

 

 

 

This card was made using two pieces of a sheet of embossed cardstock with what I believe is the Tim Holtz Postcard embossed image.  I cute two rectangles slightly larger than 1 3/4 ” x 4″.  I used my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Dried Marigold, Vintage Photo and Black Soot, my foam blending tool and distressed both pieces to give them an aged look, staggered them and attached them to the card front.

 

 

 

For my image, I started out by stamping my watch face with my BoBunny stamp set (and I have no idea what it’s called cause I didn’t keep that part of the packaging!!) in Tim Holtz Black Soot onto a piece of cream cardstock.  I fancy cut around the face of the clock and then too my script background stamp from my Hot Off The Press ‘Delicate Patterns’ set and stamped in onto the front of the clock face in Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink.  Next, I took a piece of Kraft cardstock and stamped the BoBunny watch onto it in Tim Holtz Black Soot.  I fancy cut around the outside of the image, and then glued the cream-colored clock face into the centre of it and attached a gear from my Tim Holtz idea-ology ‘Sprocket Gears’ set with a brass brad.  I then took some Kraft cardstock again and stamped the wings from my Hot Off The Press ‘Flights of Fancy’ set in Black Soot as well and fancy cut around each one.  I attached them to the back of the watch image and pop dotted it onto the front of the embossed panels.

 

 

So, there you have it.  The finished card…..could work quite well for a masculine card I think.   Thanks for peeking in….I’m off to post yet another card….
