Hearts Come Home…

Blog winner announcement!!!  The winner of the new stamp set used in my OnStage presentation is…

Amy Sabol

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!  Amy, email me @brm643@comcast.net and I will get that stamp set in the mail to you!

This will be a special Christmas in my little family because little Henry will experience his first Christmas and we get to share that sweet memory.  He has just recently learned to crawl so he is a busy little guy.  Oh what fun!

He and his little family will be here for Thanksgiving next week.  In addition it will also be his mommy’s birthday!  So I made this framed piece for her to decorate for the holidays.  I even put her name on the Bakery as she hopes to open one some day…

The art space measures 5″ x 10″.

In this close up you can see her name on the bakery awning…

The lettering is much more prominent when viewed from this angle.

In this shot you can see the Dazzling Diamonds in the trees.  I would have used Wink of Stella but went through two pens finishing my swaps for OnStage and haven’t ordered replacements yet.

Do you have someone on your gift list that might enjoy a similar framed holiday piece?  This town scene took some planning and masking to keep certain objects in front of others, but it was so much fun to build this little town scene!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits just in case you’d like to build a town too!

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock
  • Ink:  Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Archival Basic Black, Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Tranquil Tide
  • Stamps:  Joy to the World (sentiment & Santa) and In the City
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Dazzling Diamonds, Large Letters Framelits, Aqua Painter, Fun Foam, Masking or Post It Notes, Card Front Builder Framelits (trees), a frame of your choice.  The one used here is from Hobby Lobby and the opening is 5″ x10″.

Digits

  • I stamped everything that would need a mask first and cut them out.  I used masking sheets, but you could substitute Post It Notes.
  • Cut your Thick Whisper White Cardstock the size of your frame.
  • Plan your stamping so you know what will be held out for masking.  For instance in this piece the little truck was the first thing stamped and then masked.
  • Secondly the buildings were stamped then masked.
  • The third layer was the trees.  The trees were cut out of Fun Foam using the Card Front Builder Framelits and used as stamps to create the background.  One line of trees were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and the second line was stamped off before stamping.  We made a forest!
  • And the last stamping was the sentiment and Santa.
  • Once all your stamping is done, add Adhesive Sheet to back of this stamped piece before cutting out letters.  Line letters on piece and cut with Large Letters Framelits.
  • Add Adhesive Sheets to back of Fun Foam and cut all letters you need.  Add stamped letter to top of Fun Foam Letter by removing protective sheet.
  • Add a piece of cardstock to the back of your stamped piece in a color that coordinates with what you have stamped.  It does show through a little when finished.  Now add your Fun Foam/stamped letters to the stamped piece and then add the finished stamped piece to a frame.

Is it gorgeous?  I bet it is!

What a fun project this was and this Eclipse Technique is really easy to do.  Give it a try!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

this makes me smile.

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!

Framing Christmas…

The Eclipse technique really caught on this year even though it is making a return visit to the stamping world.

But with the total eclipse we had earlier this year, it just seems right to end the year with an eclipse Christmas.

Several of these framed Christmas home décor pieces will find their way into friends and loved ones homes during the holidays…

Everyone will want to know where the frame came from…Hobby Lobby.  And the opening is 5″ x 10″.

The raised letters were done with Fun Foam.

Had to get a shot with the Dazzling Diamonds doing its thing.

I just love this technique!

Now I’ve made these with the letters spelling “joy” and “Noel” too.  You’re only limited by the opening in the frame.  This frame did have glass, but that was discarded.

If you find a frame you can’t resist, here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this technique…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstick
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Powder Pink, Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive
  • Stamps:  Good Tidings
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Dazzling Diamonds Powder, Large Letters Framelits, Fun Foam (1/8″ thick), Self Adhesive Sheets

Digits

  • The opening to this frame is 5″ x 10″.  Cut your Thick Whisper White to the dimensions of your frame opening.
  • Stamp all your holly and berry stamps after positioning where you want your sentiment to be.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Give it a few minutes to dry or it might smudge.
  • Add a piece of Self Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Fun Foam.  Cut your letters from this section so that all the letters have Adhesive Sheet on the back.
  • Draw a light pencil line across the stamped piece where you want the bottom of the letters to be.  Add Adhesive Sheet to the back of this stamped piece where the letters will be cut.  Lay this piece on your Magnetic Board and place your Framelits for each letter for spacing.  In the case where you might have double letters like I did here, add the Fun Foam just for placement and remove before cutting letters.  Cut letters out.
  • Add the stamped letter to the Fun Foam letter by removing the protective sheet.  You will need a backing sheet attached to the back of your stamped piece.  Removed protective covering from Fun Foam letters and add back into place on the stamped piece.  Because the center of my “R” letter had stamping on it, I included them.  If the centers of your letters do not have stamping on them, make your backing piece the cardstock color your are using and it can show through where letters have openings.  Like an “O” or “B” for example.
  • Once you have all the letters placed, add some water to a blob of multipurpose glue and apply where your want the Dazzling Diamonds Powder.  Sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds.
  • Add to frame and you are done!

This would make the perfect hostess gift!

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe all the comments!  I WILL answer all of them, but not until we pick a winner tomorrow so that all will be included.  I plan to number each one and let Sweetums pick a number then announce the winner in tomorrow’s post!  Good Luck!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

all of these things…

Roomie Frames…

There is a group coming together in Salt Lake City this week who keep in touch with each other, lift and encourage each other, but only see one another maybe once a year if we are lucky.  And this is the week!

There will be laughter and there will be no sleep.  We will catch up with each other’s lives and share our own.  This will be a magical week of friendships.

So I’ve made this sweet little framed Christmas ornament for “the group” and hope they will hang it on their tree each year and remember all the fun we’ve had together.

The opening measures 2″ x 3″ (about a business card size)

A little Wink of Stella adds bling.

See that tiny little snowman?

I’ll tell you right up front I found these frames at Hobby Lobby and scooped them up knowing exactly what I would do with them.

The background is done on watercolor paper using the same technique as was explained here.

Here’s the rest of the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Watercolor Paper, Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, plus Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
  • Ink:  Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Tranquil Tide
  • Stamps:  I made the tree stamp using the trees from Card Front Builder Framelits Dies.  I cut two sets from Fun Foam and glued them together with multipurpose glue.
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  3/8″ Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon, Linen Thread, Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments, Duo Banner Punch, Card Front Builder Framelit Dies, Hometown Greetings Framelit Dies, Silver Sparkle Ribbon (retired)

Digits

  • The watercolor paper measurement will depend on your specific frame.  Mine were 2-1/4″ x 3-1/4″.  Stamp trees using method referred to earlier here.
  • Cut the snow scene from Thick Whisper White CS using the Hometown Greetings Framelits Dies and trim to fit your frame.  Color your trees, house and door using reinker.
  • Add pieces inside your frame.
  • Make a bow with Lemon Lime Twist ribbon tying center with Linen Thread.  Cut Boxwood Wreaths in two pieces then add at bottom of frame with hot glue.  Add bow with hot glue over these boxwoods.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black on scrap Thick Whisper White then punch with Due Banner Punch.  Also Punch a banner from Lemon Lime Twist CS and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.  Attach all three together with multipurpose glue and add to top corner of frame with hot glue.
  • Add a loop of ribbon at the top center back with hot glue for tree hanging.

My wish is “the group” will enjoy these little mementos for years to come and they will bring a smile to their faces remembering how much fun we had together.

Hope your Thursday is awesome!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

I’ll need this when I get home!

Get inky…Be HaPpY!

OnStage SLC Swaps…

The tradition of swapping handmade cards at a Stampin’ Up! convention is a treasured ritual of those attending.  You can make as many or few as you want, but you don’t want to miss joining in on the fun.

This year I have 100 swaps to share (remember, I do not like to make multiples of anything!) and I will come home with 100 new ideas to share with my peeps.

Here is my swap for this 2017 OnStage Convention…

And my Wink of Stella is showing up…yay!

I doubt there will be another like it since I made the stamp using a die and fun foam.

Stamping and spritzing on watercolor paper is magic…just sayin’

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for this piece…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, plus watercolor paper
  • Ink:  Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Tranquil Tide and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Merry Patterns
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  3/8″ Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon, Wink of Stella, Fun Foam, MISTI or Stamp Positioner, Water Spritzer

Digits

The Thick Whisper White base is 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″

The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 5-1/4″ x 4″ attached to base with SNAIL

To make your own stamp, cut two layers of fun foam for each die and glue together with multipurpose glue.

Cut watercolor paper 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Load your stamp with ink and spritz with water before stamping.  Using your spritzer add water to your image on the paper to promote “blooming” of color.  Set aside to dry.  You can soak up large drips with a tissue.

Once dry add Tranquil Tide ink to stamp, spritz with water and stamp just to the side of the previous trees.  Add a small amount of water to encourage the colors to move and mingle.  Let dry.

Add Old Olive ink to your stamp.  Do not spritz.  Stamp over your first Lemon Lime Twist trees.  Add Wink of Stella to just this tree after the ink drys.

Stamp sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist and Archival Basic Black.

Add ribbon/bow under sentiment and attach in back with SNAIL.

Glue watercolor paper to base with multipurpose glue and weight down the layers until dried.

I hope you will give this technique a try and let me know how you like it!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

I am so grateful to be where I am today…hope you are too!

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

  • The top Basic Black layer is 3-5/8″ square attached with dimensionals

Snowflakes ‘n Gingham?

Mixing snowflakes and gingham?  Sure!  Why not?

This reminds me of wearing cowboy boots with lace…always a good look!

Glamour close up shot…

That snowflakes are just gorgeous.

and a peek inside.

Actually this card is very easy to make and would make a good choice for multiples…not that I like making multiples!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Smoky Slate Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black and VersaMark Ink

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″.  Score at 4-1/4″, fold and burnish with a Bone Folder.
  • Cut the lower edge of the base card and at the same time add the line of dots.
  • Cut one set of Thick Whisper White snowflakes.  I laid these flakes upside down on my Silicon Craft Sheet and ran SNAIL on the back.  You could also add a strip of Adhesive Paper to the back of the cardstock before cutting out the flakes. Trim at sides.  Add flakes over the bottom of the card front..
  • Use Embossing Buddy before applying VersaMark Ink for sentiment. Sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat.
  • Add a band of Smoky Slate Gingham just below the line of dots using SNAIL.
  • Make several loops with the gingham ribbon and tie center with Linen Thread then add over band at left side with glue dots.  I have a video on YouTube here showing steps to make a bow like this.
  • Inside the Smoky Slate layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp sentiment and attach over Smoky Slate with SNAIL.

See?  This really is a very simple card.
