Good Morning all,
How are we all today, keeping well and warm I hope?
It seems a long time since I have posted here and I hope everyone had a great Christmas……
My make today is a canvas that I made for Jenny at the end of last year for Create and Craft, however jenny forgot to take it with her, bless her she has so much to remember to take…. I know the feeling!!
Anyway I thought that I would give you a good look at it today. I used the gorgeous Falling Leaves Stamp set and Sunny Day Greetings Stamp set……
I really enjoyed getting inky and messy creating this, it made me feel like a child again when my mum used to let me loose with paints!!!
So let’s take a look…….
I used acrylic paints on the canvas background…….
A closer look at the detail…….
I combined Distress inks on the leaves to get a real autumnal look and added a touch of embossing powder….
Well I do hope you like my make today and hope that it has given you some inspiration…..
Until next time…
Hugs Lisa B xx
Bad Girl Bernie I missed a blog post on the 12th Jan so sorry peeps but in my defence I have been unwell …I wont bore you with all the details but to make up for it I have not one …not two but three projects to share with you .
The first is using a rubber silhouette stamp which is of an oriental poppy.
You will need 4 circles of card 2 white and two red the 2 white cards need to be cut at 4 inches and 4 1/2 inches the red need to be cut at 4 1/4 inches and 4 3/4 inches so when you layer them up you will have a graduating circle ….
Next ink your stamp in black onyx versafine and heat emboss in clear embossing powder. Then cut through the middle and make an asymmetric cut on both sides of the card as shown in the photo layer onto smallest red circle then onto white and last onto red again and tape to card. add verse as required
The next project I would like to share is a tag well two tags using the same stamp but two very different looks …The first is clean and simple a white tag using the Silhouette Grasses which is a grey rubber stamp. How I did this is I inked in Antique Linen distress inks and then taking distress markers using the brush end tap the marker over the already inked stamp I used a selection of different greens for the stem’s of the grasses and then tapped lightly over the tops of the flowers in Peacock Feathers stamped and heated with a heat tool to set and popped a Happy Birthday sentiment on the side .
This is a tag using the Fleather effect with the Silhouette grasses on one side and the Butterfly’s from the Butterfly set on the other all the colours are gilding wax I hope you like them xxxxx
Heidi here to share another project with you today.
I have made a little frame using the gorgeously versatile set ‘Butterflies’, along with some turquoise card pieces and a wonderful die set ‘Hexagon Stax’ from Die-Namics.
Firstly, I started by die-cutting all of the elements out. I have stamped the small butterfly all over the frame with Versafine ‘Vintage Sepia’ ink and cut out the butterflies and attached with strong glue.
Onto white card, I have stamped the sentiment in the set and edged with ink. Then sticking all of the elements together using sticky pads to raise the frame elements.
Lastly, adding some pearls to the butterflies and frame corners.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
It’s my turn to post something on the Hobby Art blog, so I chose a card that I made with one of Jenny’s wonderful new stamps CS086D Falling Leaves.
It is always exciting when I get a parcel with the new designs in.
I love leaves so this has become a firm favourite as soon as I saw it. So many ideas, so little time, mores the pity.
I stamped and embossed the Horse Chestnut leaf randomly onto a piece of handmade background paper.
If I remember rightly it was a piece of copy paper that I had cleaned my brayer on after using actylic paint on my Gelli Plate. I told you I never seem to throw anything away lol.
I masked the leaves and then stamped randomly over the panel with another of the new stamps CS087D Sunny Day Greetings.
I coloured the leaves in using a Brown Wink of Stella brush and then trimmed the panel and cut it into three.
I also fussy cut out several other leaves which I added to the card using silicon having first shaped them on a padded mat.
The main card has also been stamped, embossed and coloured with more of the leaves and then I added some faux stitching around the edge.
Why not check out the Gallery where there are loads of fabulous samples to inspire you.
Have a great weekend. Happy Crafting.
Hi Everyone!!! I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and I hope that you all have a wonderful new year, late I know but this is my very first blog post of the year.
For my first blog post and my first non Christmas card for quite a while, I had to use this beautiful Open Flower stamp.
What I did is stamped them onto craft card and then coloured the flowers in with my clear Wink of stella (that is in the winter sale at a amazing price!) by picking up some red from my red wink of stella to give it a more subtle colour.
I have then used a sentiment from the very lovely Friend set to go with the flowers.
Hope you’ve enjoyed todays make ill be back soon
Do you ever make a card for a friend just because….I was asked to participate in a R.A.K . For those who don’t know what this is it stands for Random Act Of Kindness. A lovely lady I chat to on Facebook and I have also had the pleasure of meeting is Doreen Sympson. So on my travels one day a spied a small card easel which I thought would be a good little thing to send light useful and small enough to pop into a Padded envelope ….. Ideal so now needed a card to go with it. I decided to make a bright and cheery easel card to match it!
I chose the Sunflower set to help banish the winter blues. And a sentiment from the Sunny day Greetings the other sentiment on the topper is from Friends Sentiments ….Small Butterflies are from the Butterfly set.
Stamped then with Versafine onyx black the quickly heat embossed in clear embossing powder. ….This allows me to use pro-markers to colour the images without the ink bleeding….the colours used for the sunflowers were lemon, summer sun , and sunflower,and the greens are Apple Cider. Pear Green and Lime Twist.the Blue is Tumbled Glass distress ink with my home made cloud mask ( I cover how to make this in a previous post) and the green ink was Bundled Sage Distress ink which you can buy from Hobby Art the black line at the back of the sunflowers is draw in with a Black pro-marker using a fine nib….Well I hope you enjoy looking at this card and much as I enjoyed making it for Doreen …..go on you don’t need a reason to tell someone you are thinking of them make one …..Just because.
