Creating my own floral swags and borders kind of feels like placing that last piece of a puzzle, so satisfying. I created this corner arrangement by stamping the banner (kit) on Neenah 80# cardstock with Intense Black ink. I then masked the banner and began stamping flowers (kit). Now, there is precise masking and then there is what I did…. I just tore my Full Stick Post It in pieces and covered the areas that I needed to. I was not about to fussy cut all those flowers. Crafting can be time consuming, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. I finished off the swag with Copic markers and Clear Ultra Fine embossed the Blanket Pattern Bold Prints (add-on) on Blush Mix Layering paper.

Señor and Señorita mouse (kit) haven’t quite found a home yet, but I wanted to show them to you anyhow. I can’t decide if I want to adhere them near the interior sentiment or if they deserve a card all their own. Or better yet, both!

Okay, so this is my favorite add-on of the release! I am obsessed with this chihuahua. I combined a few elements from both It’s Fiesta Time (add-on) and Cinco de Meow (add-on) to come up with this boozy inspired card. Hot sauce bottles can be beer too, right?

I captured the texture of a tortilla shell by coloring with Copic markers, dampening a terrycloth towel with isopropyl alcohol and pressing it to the shell. Just press and lift for the amount of time it takes for you to say each step – press it and then lift it. It’s that easy. After adding the texture I colored the remaining image. Taco ’bout awesome!

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

I’m loving the pink and black color scheme as of late. This card was created with the cake and sentiments from the kit. The black and white strip between the sentiments is the Blanket Pattern Bold Prints and the background cover plate die is the Paper Picado Confetti die.

I adhered the black confetti die cut over the top of a Smooth Bristol panel that I watercolored with Arteza markers. The cake is stamped in Intense Black and colored with Copics. I iced the cake with clear Wink of Stella and a Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen.

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

This card was created with the main kit. Yep, that floral frame die, it’s included! This card was featured a few days ago over on a Hero Arts Countdown to Creativity blog post. If you missed it, you can find all the details HERE.

This card would have been even more awesome had I used the new Reactive Fiesta Inks that are also included in the kit! I didn’t quite have my hands on them at the time, but oh boy, when I do… Ay, Chihuahua!

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

Love Letters, Just Because

Love Letters, Just Because

Die D-Lites by Spellbinders are the cutest! They tend to be smaller sets of etched dies that go together to create adorbs vignettes for papercrafting. I’m playing with the Lover Letter dies today. This set includes 5 dies: a foldable envelope, embossed letter and three nesting hearts for about $15. Of course my Littles couldn’t get enough of them so I die cut handfuls of tiny hearts, envelopes and letters. I’ve found them in all sorts of places around the house now! Good for more than just cardmaking, apparently. Perfect for Barbies, or so it seems!

I created this card by first masking off the lower portion of an A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) Bristol Smooth panel. I then ink blended Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber and Evergreen Bough Distress Oxides (if you haven’t tried these inks yet, you are missing out!). I then die cut the Love Letter dies from the Echo Park Summer Dreams paper pad. I stamped “I just feel like giving you a card” from Hand Drawn Everyday Messages in Hero Arts Intense Black ink. Then, I adhered all the fun little die cut pieces and sparkling clear sequins.

A happy little card created quickly and easily. It’s headed to the post office on Mail it Monday, just because! Carve out some time just for you this weekend, doctors orders! And by doctor, I mean me!

Single Stamp Multicolor Stamping

Single Stamp Multicolor Stamping

You guys, I whipped together a couple of quick cards with what might be my favorite Hero Arts February Add-On, Come Fly with Me. Life is too short to work with products I don’t like, so you won’t find any of that here. What you will find today is 2 cards created in under 40 minutes total. Come Fly with Me is an encouragement clear stamp set with sentiments like Be Free, Dream, With Brave Wings She Flies, Let Your Dreams Take Flight and more. Awesome stamps sets don’t require a ton of time, just a few simple techniques to allow the image and sentiments to take center stage.

This first card was created easily thanks to the Misti Precision Stamp Tool. I used antistatic powder over the Bristol panel, masked the fly aways, and inked the feather with Versamark. After gold heat embossing the feather only, I left the stamp in place on the lid of the Misti and cleaned it throughly with Hero Arts Ultra Clean (the best stamp cleaner on the market, in my opinion!), swiped it with a damp absorber and blotted it dry. With one color at a time I used a rainbow of Tombow Dual Brush Markers to color each of the fly aways and stamped them each 2x. I finished the Bristol framing mat by coloring with each of the same markers, in rainbow order, diagonally across the areas of the panel that would show. I then quickly ran a water brush over them to meld the colors together. I ran the damp panel through my Minc to flatten and speed the drying process. I stamped the sentiment in crisp Hero Arts black dye ink. To finish up I mounted the feather panel to the mat and adhered the combination to an A2 folded card base.

This, the quicker of the two cards, was created by masking the top portion of the Bristol card panel, leaving about and inch and a half exposed at the bottom. I then used Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress ink to blend left to right, leaving the far right white. I spattered a bit of water, removed the masking and speed dried the panel with my heat tool. Then I stamped the dandelion in black dye ink. To finish up this quickie, I heat embossed a sentiment on a black scrap, adhered it across the panel and applied the panel to an A2 folded card base.

We don’t always, and maybe not even often, have a ton of time to craft. Don’t let that keep you out of your craft therapy sessions. Quickies are treat here and there too! 😉

The Ton’s Fall 2017 Release – Day 4

The Ton’s Fall 2017 Release – Day 4

Day 4 is the final day of new product reveal by The Ton Stamps for the Fall 2017 Release. I’ve created a cozy card combining multiple stamp sets with the Scenes: Fireplace backdrop and another blended card with City Girls: Winter Edition. Don’t think the fun stops here though. Tomorrow brings a spectacular blog hop with Tons of talent!

The Ton Stamps Fall 2017 Release is available now!

For The Ton’s Fall 2017, Effie has released 24 new stamp designs, coordinating dies and 6 new couture mixes! There are three new gifts with purchases that you can obtain with this new release. You can find the details to this promotion here.

View the other talented design team member daily release posts by following the links at the bottom of this post!

Masking, masking, masking is what I have to say about this! Fortunately, that is easy to do by stamping the images onto full stick post paper or Eclipse masking paper and fussy cutting them. I like to store my masks with my stamp set for later use. (There are dies available that you can use to create a similar look by having multiple layers, but you will have a small border around each image)

1. Plan scene out by stamping elements onto scrap paper with no masks. I used Fireplace Holiday Accessories, City Girls: Snow Day, Fireplace Accessories and Scenes: Fireplace.

2. Stamp final images onto Neenah 110# solar white Classic Crest cardstock in The Ton’s Caviar Hybrid Couture Color ink. Stamp pine bough mantle piece in The Ton’s Everglade Moss ink. Use masks as necessary. Remember to stamp the image you want to appear to be in front FIRST and work toward the back.

3. Stamp the final backdrop scene in Memento London Fog, a grey tone, to give the appearance of depth

4. Color scene with Copic markers.

5. To create the stone look I used the tip to tip technique. I held a light-ish grey in my hand and touched the tip to a similarly valued brown tip. Say a C3 and an E53. Don’t get to hung up on the actual color numbers. So many Copics will give you the same look. It isn’t about using exactly what someone else used, but using what you have to create a similar look or feel. When you go to color on your paper the marker will drop the brown first and blend into the grey. It is super fun and gives great effects!

6. Stamp Christmas on the mantle in Versamark and emboss in Gold.

7. Trim card and mount to 4.5″ x 5.5″ folded heavyweight cardstock.

8. Adhere Deck the Halls Couture Color sequins to tree.

1. Stamp City GIrls: Winter Edition onto Bristol Smooth paper in Caviar Hybrid Couture Color ink.

2. Color with Copic markers and die cut.

3. Heat emboss gold sentiments onto thin black cardstock strips.

4. Using Mini Ink Blending tool, start at top and blend down to white with Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink.

5. Adhere sentiment strips to blended panel.

6. Pop Copic-ed girl with dimensional adhesive and apply over strips.

7. Adhere panel to A2 folded card base.

8. Adhere Deck the Halls Couture Color sequins.
