It’s The Little Things…

As stampers, when we give a gift (large or small), more is expected.  I mean a wine bottle in a bag just doesn’t measure up!

Recently I wanted to thank a fellow stamper and neighbor/friend who had babysat my furbabies while we visited family in California.  While wine from California was a treat, the packaging needed to be special.

It’s such a small thing, but adds so much…

Lots of background and texture interest.

Love the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle…

Wish I were organized enough to keep these on hand, but no, flying by the seat of my pants is usually what happens around here.  But if you’d like to keep some tags on hand, here is the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Marina Mist, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay
  • Stamps:  Beautiful Bouquet
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies, 1-1/4″ and 1-1/2″ Circle Punch, Linen Thread, Scallop Topped Tag Punch, Navy Gingham Ribbon

Digits

  • Cut the Thick Whisper White CS 2″ x 4-1/4″.  Trim with Scallop Topped Tag Punch.
  • Wet a piece of water color paper and drop Daffodil Delight and Marina Mist Reinker with an Aqua Painter letting the paper do its work.  You can encourage movement with the Aqua Painter.  Let dry completely.  Cut a piece 1-7/8″ x 4-1/8″.  Cut with Scallop Topped Tag Punch.  Attach to Thick Whisper White CS with multipurpose glue.
  • On scrap Thick Whisper White CS stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Punch out with 1-1/4″ Circle Punch.  Punch out 1-1/2″ piece of Lemon Lime Twist.  Add to back of sentiment with multipurpose glue.  Punch hole in to for Linen Thread bow.
  • Cut stems from Lemon Lime Twist with framelit.  Lay a piece of Linen Thread behind the stems before gluing to tag to be able to tie bow on top with the sentiment tag.  Add stems to tag with dots of multipurpose glue.
  • Stamp small group of flowers stamp using Pool Party marker over everything and then adding Bermuda Bay with marker using “thumping Technique”.  Huff before stamping.  Make three images.  Cut with framelit without lining up.  You just want those bits of color to show.  Add flowers to end of stems with dots of multipurpose glue.
  • Using Navy Gingham ribbon to tie to bag or bottle.

It is such a little thing, but it does let my friend know how much I appreciated her taking care of my furbabies…

We had temperatures in the high 40’s this morning!  And this day has been glorious.  Hope yours has been too.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

always.

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!

Peace Wreath…

Today’s post uses a hand drawn border and another drippy water color…

There’s also some splattering, embossing and of course, that Linen Thread bow for good measure!

A glamour close up shows off the details…

The Linen Thread bow is the natural embellishment.

And inside…

Now I’m just gonna admit up front that the slight orange tinge you see on the card front was washed off the masking tape.  I was reusing the tape.  Not a bad look, but just keep that in mind if you are reusing your masking tape.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy, Old Olive and VersaMark
  • Stamps:  Painted Harvest
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread, Silver Embossing Powder, .005 Black Micron Pen or Black Journal Pen, Small Brush

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL.
  • The water color paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Tape a border on water color paper to a hard surface.  Wet the water color paper with a spritzer or brush.  Stamp base of wreath with Lemon Lime Twist and tilt the paper so the wreath runs down card front.  Let dry naturally.  Really…just go away and do something else for a bit.
  • Over stamp the wreath with the base stamp in Lemon Lime Twist.  Stamp detailed wreath in Emerald Envy once and again without lining up or reinking.  Add VersaMark dots around the wreath and sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat.
  • Stamp center of wreath in Old Olive or any of the green colors a couple of times…do not line up points.
  • Stamp sentiment in VersaMark and sprinkle with Silver Embossing Powder and heat.
  • Add splatters in color of your choice.
  • Remove masking and doodle a border with Micron Pen or Journaling Pen.
  • Make Linen Bow and add at top with glue dots.  For video on making the bow go here.
  • Inside the Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-3/4″ x 4-3/4″ add with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″.  Stamp wreath several times in different colors of green at lower left corner.  Add to card with SNAIL.
  • You could also add this wreath to your envelope front to coordinate with the card front.

This was so much fun to make and I can see myself mass producing this one.

Hope you and your family are enjoying a peaceful Labor Day.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

and I’ll need it as we’re flying in today from California on a “red eye”!

Hope you are inky and HaPpY!

Merry Cheer…

So yesterday we talked about making a tree stamp from the Build A Border Thinlits Dies with fun foam.  If you didn’t see yesterday’s post, you can see it here.

Today I’ve created a forest of Christmas trees in the snow made from Embossing Paste mixed with Dazzling Diamonds…Oh boy is this ever pretty in person!

Here’s the fun foam stamp again on water color paper all moody and drippy.

In this close up you get an idea of the dimension of the snow with the Embossing Paste.  The “snow” was made with Craft White Ink and a stylus.

I love this card, but truthfully if I were to remake it, I’d leave off the suggestions of the sun.  If you make this card, see what you think before adding the sun.

Alright, let’s get to those Stuff ‘N Digits so you can get started…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Marina Mist, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Mossy Meadow (retired) you could substitute Always Artichoke
  • Stamps:  Lovely As A Tree, fun foam trees and Seasonal Lantern (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Craft White Ink, Round brush or Aqua Painter, masking or painter’s tape

Digits

  • The Lemon Lime Twist base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The water color paper is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Tape water color paper border onto a flat surface.  Wet the surface of the water color paper with a spritzer or brush.  Stamp a set of trees across the paper in Lemon Lime Twist.  Tilt paper so that color can “bloom” toward the bottom.  Let dry naturally and completely.
  • Stamp over trees again in Lemon Lime Twist with evergreen tree from Lovely As A Tree.  Over stamp again in Old Olive and then Mossy Meadow or any darker green.
  • Using brush, wet water color paper between trees and all of sky area.  Drop Marina Mist reinker in space between trees and tilt paper to let the color run toward the sky area.  You can encourage movement with a wet brush and add more color if you need it.  You can also create clouds with a smooshed tissue absorbing color here and there.  Let dry completely and naturally.
  • Add sentiment in Archival Basic Black ink
  • Mix a small amount of Embossing Paste with a bit of Dazzling Diamonds.  Add to tree limbs with the Piercing Tool or anything you feel comfortable working with.  Let dry.
  • Add snow in the sky and on trees with White Craft Ink refill.  This does take overnight to dry at least!
  • Add water color art to card front with multipurpose glue.

These are so much fun to make…but I wouldn’t want to mass produce them…no way!

We are expecting rain from Texas and Louisana this afternoon and tomorrow.  Nothing like what the folks in those states have experienced though.  What a tragedy.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

nothing.

Stay inky…Be HaPpY!

Pumpkin Spice…

Not too much longer and it will be pumpkin spice kind of weather and hopefully beautiful gold fall colors and cool temperatures…

Today’s post is a card for just those type of days…

Do you love the fall colors?  And that sentiment from Painted Harvest is my favorite!

I tried a torn edge on the watercolor paper and decided I liked it…

And in the close up you can see the Cajun Craze splatters.

Here’s how this all started…well, actually it started with a crazy idea I had one night when sleep wouldn’t come.  You’ll be proud of me for NOT getting up to immediately make this idea.

First I made my own stamp from the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies (because I forgot to order the bundle!…EEEEK).  Here’s what the stamp looks like…

Three layers of fun foam cut with the thinlits dies glued together to create a stamp.  Next step was this…

a piece of water color paper with taped borders, dampen with lots of water then stamp with Crushed Curry to create this row of trees.  Let dry naturally.

Now you’re ready for the Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff

  • Paper:  Marine Mist Cardstock, plus water color paper with torn edges
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Marina Mist
  • Stamps:  Painted Harvest (sentiment), Lovely As A Tree
  • Tools:  Small round brush or Aqua Painter, fun foam, Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies, Artist or Painter’s tape, water spritzer

Digits

  • The Marina Mist base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The water color paper is 5-1/4″ x 4″ (approximately after tearing).
  • Tape water color paper to a non porous board, tape borders with painter’s or masking tape.  Mist the water color paper with spritzer then stamp trees with Crushed Curry ink.  You can also spritz stamp after inking.  Tilt the water color paper so the color can run and “bloom”.  Let dry naturally.  Just go do something else for a bit.  It should be thoroughly dry before continuing.
  • Paint the sky area with water to dampen entire sky surface.  Drop Marina Mist Reinker with your brush in between trees and move the color by tilting your piece upside down.  The color should only go where you have dampened the water color paper.  You can add more color or move the color with you brush.  You can create clouds with a smooshed up tissue and picking up color while the sky is still damp.  Let dry.
  • The Lovely As A Tree Stamp was inked three different times.  Once with Crushed Curry, then Pumpkin Pie and last with Cajun Craze.  Before stamping each color on each tree, spritz the stamp with water.  It does not need to dry completely in between stamping these colors.  They should mingle.
  • Add the greeting in Early Espresso.
  • Add splatters with your brush and Cajun Craze reinker.
  • Let the piece dry completely before removing border tape.
  • Add this piece to card front with multipurpose glue.

This technique was so much fun, I decided to make a winter scene with snow.  I’ll post that later this week.  Hope you’ll give this a try!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Yep.  You best be moving…

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

Flabulous Flamingo…

My Stampin’ Up! friend Lisa Curcio posted recently she had earned the Thailand dream trip but ended up not being able to go.  Can you imagine?

On the day she made this announcement she posted a card using the new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set which inspired my post today for you…

A landscape created with post it note, sponge and ink.

a glamour close up…

Even though the masking makes it look like there are layers here, this card will mail flat.

Many times I’ve mentioned masking is my favorite stamping technique.  The card demonstrates an entire scene made with the masking technique.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Lemon Lime Twist, Thick Whisper White and Basic Black Cardstock
  • Ink:  Marina Mist, Peek A Boo Peach, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Fabulous Flamingo and Colorful Seasons (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  large post it note, 1-1/4″ circle punch, Sponge cut into four wedges

  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Tear the edge of maybe two Post It notes that will cover the width of the card front.  Punch a circle from sticky part of Post It Note and place where you want the sun/moon to be then add the first horizontal mask.  Sponge with Marina Mist, then Peek A Boo  Peach, Berry Burst and last Lemon Lime Twist.  While the moon/sun is still masked, sponge edge with Daffodil Delight.  Remove masks.
  • Stamp leaves in top two corners and grass/water and flamingo at bottom of card front in Archival Basic Black.

Nature’s Post…

You just can beat Mother Nature when it comes to beauty.  That’s why I’ve encouraged so many to give this Duoprinting technique a try…

Today’s post is an interesting negative effect I was able to get with this plant in one of my hanging baskets…

How sweet is that little plant?

This close up shows how moisture from the plant effected the water color paper when pressed through the Big Shot.

A side view…

and a peek inside.

So go out and seek interesting plants and give this a try.  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Fresh Fig Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Fresh Fig…Mother Nature supplies the rest!
  • Stamps:  Beautiful Bouquet (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Linen Thread and a Big Shot

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Fresh Fig layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to base card with multipurpose glue
  • The water color layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″ (cut two).  Stamp sentiment in upper right corner with Fresh Fig.  Fold a piece of copy paper in half and sandwich your plant between two pieces of water color paper and place inside the copy paper.  Run through Big Shot.  You will have a positive and negative print for two card fronts.
  • Crisscross Linen Thread at the bottom of this layer and attach with SNAIL.  Make bow and attach with glue dots.  YouTube video on bow here.  Add this layer to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Inside there is a layer of Fresh Fig 5-1/4″ x 4″ with a layer of Thick Whisper White 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Stamped with sentiment and attached with SNAIL.

There is a stack of these nature duoprints in my studio that should last me for a while.  Give it a try…you’ll be addicted like me!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

 

You’ll already be wet…might as well get inky and be HaPpY!

Thinking of You…

“Thinking of You” I consider the perfect sentiment for what I call an “all occasion” card.

So today’s post along with this sentiment is also one more of my favorite “pressing” of nature cards (I have many now thanks to Lydia Fiedler!)…

These are very young and tender Japanese Maple leaves.  They turn green as they mature.

Look at all that intricate veining…

The water color paper had to be trimmed so the piece was used inside the card.

If you haven’t already, you need to try this technique with your Big Shot and any nature plant you want…it’s addictive!

Here’s your “Stuff ‘N Digits” for this post…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Old Olive, Basic Black and water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black (Mother Nature did all the rest!)
  • Stamps:  Colorful Seasons (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Old Olive layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with multipurpose glue
  • The Basic Black layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ attached to card front with multipurpose glue
  • The water color paper layer is 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Sandwich your nature clipping between two pieces of water color paper.  Fold a piece of copy paper and add your water color “sandwich” inside.  Run through Big Shot between two cutting plates.  You will have a positive and negative image for your card making…both equally beautiful!  Add your sentiment in Archival Basic Black at lower left corner.
  • Layer the water color paper to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Inside I have a layer of Old Olive 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ and a piece of water color art 1-1/8″ x 5-1/8″ attached with multipurpose glue to each other and to inside of card.

You are going to love making these impressions and then creating the most beautiful all occasion cards.  What a great stash to have on hand.

Hope your day is awesome…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

smiling.

If you want to be HaPpY…try getting those fingers inky!

Nature’s Palette…

Do you subscribe to Splitcoaststampers?  This week Lydia Fiedler was a guest there and showed a method to capture nature’s beauty and palette.

Her instructions were to find interesting plants or favorite ones and press them between water color paper or cardstock to achieve a positive and negative images.

I had to try it.  I mean Lydia is a hoot and always open for new techniques.  Her blog is Understandblue.com if you’d like to check it out.

Here’s the first image and card I made (there are many!)…

Ferns are a favorite for me and this one is a Japanese Painted Fern.  If you look closely you’ll see some reds and purples.

In this glamour close up you can see the colors better and of course, one of those pretty Linen Thread bows.

and a side view.

I got on a roll and made several of these.  I’ll share one or two next week that are interesting…especially the Dancing Fern!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you….

Stuff

  • Paper:  Crumb Cake, Thick Whisper White and Fresh Fig Cardstock, plus water color paper.
  • Ink:  Archival Ink
  • Stamps:  Climbing Orchids (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Plant of your choice, Linen Thread

Digits

  • The Crumb Cake base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Fresh Fig layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • The water color paper layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Place your plant on one piece of water color paper and cover it with another piece of paper.  Fold a piece of copy paper in half and place the water color “sandwich” inside.  With one cutting pad down on Big Shot base add the “sandwich” and another cutting pad and run through Big Shot.  All Big Shots have their own tension.  If needed, add a shim for more pressure.
  • Remove “sandwich” from copy paper and plant from water color paper.  You may need to let it dry before removing if the color is smudging.  How much fun is that?  Instant beauty!  You will never get two alike.
  • Mount your water color paper with multipurpose glue or tear tape to the Fresh Fig layer.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.
  • Tie the Linen Thread bow and add all layers to the card front with multipurpose glue or tear tape.  If you need directions for bow, I have a video on YouTube here.
  • Inside there is a layer of Fresh Fig 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ with a layer of Thick Whisper White 3″ x 4″.

Another plant that came out well with this technique was a Japanese Maple.  I used new leaves that were red.  I have to show you that one next week.

Hope you are inspired to raid your garden and make some of the cards!

Have a great weekend…

Standout HB…

The different techniques you can use with this framelit interested me…and I plan to use all of them!

This first technique where the words are popped out of the stamped art was somewhat (not too bad, I’ve done lots worse) was the first technique I tried…

And I had been waiting for a project using this stamp set…this seemed perfect!

This card gave me the perfect opportunity to use the newly available Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets.

Is that a standout happy birthday or what?

And a peek inside…

Not to long ago I used this method with the Rose Wonder stamp set and framelits.  It turned out gorgeous, but I lost my mind placing all those little pieces back inside.  This one really wasn’t bad at all and I do love the effect.

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

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock
  • Ink:  Powder Pink, Real Red, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake and Old Olive.
  • Stamps:  Graceful Garden
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Happy Birthday Thinlits,  Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, small round brush or Blender Pen, ribbon (your choice, this Seam Binding is retired)

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-1/4″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The top Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp rose image by “painting” stamp with markers.  Color all the rose Powder Pink first and all the leaves Lemon Lime Twist.  Then go back with Real Red and Old Olive and paint half of the image over the lighter color.  Use a small round brush with water or a Blender Pen to pull the color into the white spaces of the image.  I made a mask of the rose with post it note paper, covered the image and stamped the background with Crumb Cake stamped off once.
  • Cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet as big as the HB Thinlit.  Attach this sheet to back of stamped image.  Run through Big Shot with HB Thinlit on top.  Attach another piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to back of a piece of white fun foam and run through Big Shot.  Remove stamped HB image carefully from stamped layer keeping all background pieces.  Attach stamped piece to card front with SNAIL.  Attach fun foam inside cut out on card front.  Attach stamped HB over fun foam.  Add background pieces back in their place.  How pretty is that?
  • Now inside the Lemon Lime Twist layer is 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ attached with SNAIL
  • The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ attach over Lemon Lime Twist layer with SNAIL
  • Using the small rose stamp image and coloring with marker in the same way as the larger image, stamp in lower right corner and blend colors with small round brush or Blender Pen.
  • Forget to show the envelope, but the smaller rose was stamped again in the lower left corner to coordinate with the card front.

Right now I’m looking for a masculine image to repeat this technique.  I’ll be sure to share that with you too.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Color Pencil Rose…

Yesterday I confessed the stencil paste was one of my favorite new products.  The first card I made after my order arrived, I used the paste.

Today’s post uses the new stencils and paste again along with the colored pencils and the Birthday Blooms stamp set.

The paste was colored using the Crumb Cake reinker…

This glamour close up shows the “dew” made with fine tipped glue applicator…

And a side view.  Do you love this ombré Lemon Lime Ribbon?

And a peek inside where I used the framelit sets to Colorful Season (branch) and Beautiful Bouquet (flowers)

So I’m in a REAL pickle…my electricity abruptly went off yesterday for two hours.  When I came into the studio to begin posting, my computer was blank!  I’ve tried everything I know to fix it with no success.

So for now I’ll have to try to post with my IPad and hope it goes well until we get this computer thing figured out…UGH!

Here’s the StuffN Digits for today’s card…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Cardstock
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Crumb Cake
  • Stamps:  Birthday Blooms, Beautiful Bouquet (sentiments)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1/4″ Lemon Lime Twist Ombré Ribbon, Embossing Paste, Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives, Linen Thread, Seasonal Layers Framelits (branch) and Bouquet Bunch Framelits (flowers)

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
  • The Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Crumb Cake layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  The rose was stamped in lower left corner with Crumb Cake ink.  Mix a small amount of paste with Crumb Cake reinker.  Lay the stencil diagonally at top right corner and apply paste with knife.  Let dry.  Be sure to clean your stencil and knife right away.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black at lower right corner.
  • Using a white colored pencil, color all of the rose image.  This will keep your colors bright.  I used a light and dark shade of pink and the same for the green.  I left some of the white pencil showing,  Use two tones of a pretty blue to shadow the rose.
  • Before adding this layer over the Lemon Lime Twist, attach a band of the Ombré Lemon Lime Ribbon at the top attached at back with SNAIL.  Make several looped bow and tie center with Linen Thread.  Attach with glue dots.
  • Inside the Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″ attached with SNAIL
  • The Whisper White layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black at top left.  Cut branch from Colorful Seasons Set in Lemon Lime Twist and add with multipurpose glue at an angle from mid left to lower right.  Cut two sets of flowers from Calypso Coral CS.  Cut one set in half and add to branch with multipurpose glue.

I hope you’ll give this paste a try.  It’s priced reasonably for all the fun you can have with it.
