Autumn Sun…

Is there anything prettier than a sunflower?  We are so lucky that five minutes down the road there are acres of sunflowers blooming every late summer.  They are magical to see and for me a magnet to try to draw and paint.

Recently I ran down the road (not literally) and for $15 they gave you a large plastic bucket to fill with however many sunflowers you could fit inside!  They also provided a sharp knife to cut the taller than me stalks.  I was in heaven.  Here is a photo quickly snapped to give you an idea of the beauty.

So when the Holiday Catalog was released a couple of weeks ago, you would have laughed to see me jump up and do my “HaPpY” dance…it’s not a pretty sight!

The preorder arrived yesterday afternoon…and yes, that’s the first stamp to see ink from the box.  Here’s my first sunflower card…

…and the sentiment is perfect!  Many of you know Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday.  What’s not to love about a holiday with no gifts and amazing food!

This is a two-step stamp stamped on wet water color paper in contrasting color.

Used the new leaf punch for some textural effect…and of course, the Linen Bow!

and a peek inside.  This leaf is “fussy cut”.

So if you love sunflowers as much as I do and you’d like to make this card, here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Very Vanilla, Thick Whisper White and Early Espresso Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive, Early Espresso and Soft Suede
  • Stamps:  Painted Harvest
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Leaf Punch, water spritzer, Strip Adhesive

Digits

  • The Thick Very Vanilla base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Early Espresso layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ attached to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • The water color layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Spray the paper to moisten thoroughly (wet but not puddling).  Stamp solid sunflower in Daffodil Delight.  Let the paper work for you.  Stamp leaf in Lemon Lime Twist.  While the paper is still damp, stamp the second more detailed sunflower over the first stamping in Crushed Curry and the leaf in Old Olive.  On scrap water color paper, moisten then stamp a second leaf like the one on the card front and also the fernlike leaf with Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive.  If it’s too green, clean your detailed stamp and over stamp in Daffodil Delight.
  • Add punched leaf with “mini” dimensionals letting it fall off the right side a bit.
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black once the water color paper is dry.  Add Linen Thread cross at bottom of this layer with SNAIL.  Attach bow with glue dots.  Video on making this bow here.
  • Add this layer to card front over Early Espresso layer with Strip Adhesive.
  • Inside the Early Espresso layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ attached with SNAIL.
  • The Thick Very Vanilla layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ attached with SNAIL over the Early Espresso layer.
  • Fussy cut “fernlike” leaf and add with glue dots.

It’s Friday and “date night” at my house.  Hope you have great plans for the weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

today…just today.

Hope you are inky and HaPpY!

Autumn in Red…

Working in watercolors is something I do often.  There are stacks of watercolor paper with my favorite color combinations and techniques.

Sometimes I’ll take a whole morning or day and just work creating panels of color and then let them dry to be used later.

And that’s exactly what happened today.  The air felt different this morning.  I know it’s still August and summer, but there is change in the air.  Which prompted me to pull out this color panel and make this autumn card for you today…

This panel had water droplets and salt added while wet.

See the interesting patterns created?

The entire front panel is raised with Adhesive Strips.

And this beautiful leaf was cut with the framelit from Seasonal Layers and the same color panel.

If you have watercolors, I hope you will be inspired to get them out and play with them.  And if you don’t, try some of these techniques with your reinkers.

Either way, here are the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Water Color Paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Feathered Together (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Watercolors (or reinker), Stitched Shapes Framelits, Seasonal Layers Framelits, Water color brush, salt, Strip Adhesive

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Water Color paper layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Add sentiment at lower left corner in Archival Basic Black ink.  Then attach to card front with Strip Adhesive.
  • Color your water color paper panel with water to dampen, then drop colors and let them bloom and travel on your paper.  You can always add water to your brush and move the color more if you want.  While wet add clean drops of water then sprinkle with salt.  Let dry completely.
  • Decide on the size of your square and pick framelits to cut your “frame” from water color paper.  Cut square from dried color panel with largest square.  Add “frame” to color panel with multipurpose glue.  Add art piece to card front with multipurpose glue.
  • Cut leaf from same color panel and add to card front over frame with mini dimensional.
  • Inside a strip from same color panel is added with multipurpose glue.

Isn’t that easy?  And this is a dramatic card in person which is always hard to capture in a photo.

Many of you know that my daughter and son-in-love are stationed in South Korea and have been there for the last 2-1/2 years.  Sweetums and I will be picking her up at the Norfolk, VA, airport this time next week!  We will be relieved to have her home and will continue to wait for SIL until the end of September.  While she says this has been a wonderful cultural experience of a lifetime, the current uncertainty with North Korea and China have ended this trip on a sour note.  Pray for all those who will remain in this chaotic state that common sense and calm reasoning will prevail.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

me too!

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

A Rose for Patty…

Today’s post is not a stamping project…imagine that!

But it is connected to stamping by a friendship made over the years I’ve been a demonstrator with fellow demo, Patty Bennett.  A sweeter person you will not find.

Patty has been a demo over 20 years, a recently celebrated million dollar seller and has a gardening green thumb you wouldn’t believe.

So Patty shares with us her beautiful flowers from her garden from time to time and we all marvel.  Not too long ago she shared a single rose in full bloom and explained it was her mother’s favorite and the name of this rose was Whiskey Mac Rose.  When I saw it, I knew I had to try to draw and paint it.  Here’s her photo…

See what I mean?

So I did…draw and paint it and I’d like to share that with you today…

What a good time I had painting this, and even though Mother Nature just cannot be captured, it was fun trying.

Next week I will be traveling and taking a break from my blogging activities.  I will miss talking with you each day and sharing ideas, but hope to return with renewed energy and ideas.

The new Holiday Catalog was released to us yesterday and I couldn’t be more excited.

Hope your week is awesome…talk to you on the flip side!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Stay inky, be HaPpY…see you next week!

Enjoy Today…

Does your normal schedule just get whacked in the summertime?  There has been nothing normal about this summer so far.  And I don’t mean bad things are happening…just LOTS of things are happening.

Even with all the planning, planners and memory joggers there are times when it’s a struggle to keep up.  And you know what happens?  We forget to enjoy the day.

So today’s post is a reminder for me and maybe for you…

The Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder plays background for the Oh So Eclectic flowers.

And a closer look shows the Window Sheet and flowers on the inside too.

And a pretty Crinkled Night of Navy Seam Binding bow adds another dimension.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for today’s post…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White plus Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper
  • Ink:  Berry Burst, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Pear Pizazz, Smoky Slate and Archival Basic Black
  • Stamps:  Oh So Eclectic and Climbing Orchid (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Night of Navy Crinkled Seam Binding, Linen Thread, White Craft Ink, White Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Eclectic Layers Thinlets, Window Sheet

Digits

  • Using the Pinewood Plank EF with Smoky Slate ink rubbed on the raised edge (Sizzix logo side) place the card front inside and emboss.  Immediately clean your EF with wet wipe.
  • Cut at 2-1/4″ from the 5-1/2″ fold line.
  • Cut a piece of Window Sheet 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Add SNAIL underneath the top front 2-1/4″ fold over and slide the window sheet under this fold over.  Press to be sure it is attached well.
  • Cut a 1-1/2″ piece from the remaining embossed panel and add to bottom of Window Sheet using SNAIL.Wipe front of window sheet with your Embossing Buddy.  Stamp sentiment in Craft White Ink on Window Sheet.  Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder and heat using the low setting on your heat gun.  You can heat from back side too.
  • Cut a piece of the graduated navy DSP 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and attach to inside of card with SNAIL.
  • Stamp flowers on scrap Thick Whisper White.  You’ll need three of each size in Berry Burst, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight.  Stamp two leaf and stems in Pear Pizzaz.  Cut all out with Thinlets.  Add to top front with multipurpose glue, single dimensional and double dimensionals at top and multipurpose glue at bottom and inside card.
  • Make a bow with several loops, tying center with Linen Thread.  Add to top of card front with glue dots.

So my thought for the day to myself is to enjoy this day and I offer that to you too!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

life changers both.

Lemon Twist…

Friends are so important to me and I have several I have known for 60 years.  Our lives pull us in different directions, but we have maintained our close relationship all through the years.

One of these friends (and she knows who she is) and I have always said to each other at different times in our lives “If Life Hands You Lemons…”

So naturally when the page turned on the new catalog and there was the stamp set Lemon Zest!  Of course I had to have it.

On a trip to Italy I remember the beautiful dishes and pottery with lemons and a beautiful color of blue.

Can you see the curve to the fruit?

Maybe you can see it better here…

and a peek inside.

This card will now go into the mail to that special friend.  She will know the minute she opens it who sent it and why.

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

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock and water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Lemon Lime Twist
  • Stamps:  Lemon Zest

  • The first Whisper White layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″.

  • The green lemon was done with Lemon Lime Twist and Daffodil Delight as were the leaves.

I love the way this card turned out and now that I’ve shared it with all of you, it will be mailed today!

Birthday Background…

SU! has beautiful designer series paper, but sometimes it’s fun to create your own especially when a stamp set offers you the perfect stamp to make it with.  And that’s just what I’ve done today…

I love the background repeats not only the color but a smaller version of the focal point.

This close up shows details in the background and the main image.

A side view shows how the Adhesive Strips lift the water color and sentiment layers.

And a peek inside.

I’m loving working/playing with this stamp set.  The design is so intricate.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Berry Burst, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Archival Basic Black plus White Craft Ink
  • Stamps:  Graceful Garden
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Layered Square Framelits, 5/8″ Crinkled Berry Burst Seam Binding, Adhesive Strips, Small Round Brush, Embossing Buddy, White Embossing Powder

Digits

  • The Berry Burst base card is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Whisper White layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The Berry Burst layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Use the Embossing Buddy all over the surface before stamping in Craft White Ink and sprinkling with White Embossing Powder and heating.  Attach to card front over Thick Whisper White layer with SNAIL.
  • The next Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.
  • The Berry Burst layer is 3-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ attached to Whisper White layer with SNAIL.
  • The water color layer is 3″ x 4″.  Color the stamp image with Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive markers.  I general cover the whole flower with the lighter Flirty Flamingo first and go back and add the Berry Burst here and there.  Same with the stem and leaves and the greens.  When you stamp on the water color paper, huff your image and hold it in place on the water color paper longer than normal to give the ink time to seep into the porus paper.  Go over the image with a small round brush and water to “move” the ink and fill in the spaces.  It’s always nice to leave a sparkle of white here and there.  Add the splatters with the Berry Burst marker using the top of the marker and flicking the brush end out over your work.
  • Attach the water color layer to the other two layers with Tear Tape.  Tie a piece of Berry Burst ribbon around the bottom of these three layers.  Add Adhesive strip to back of all three layers and place on card front centered.
  • Cut a scalloped square from Berry Burst.  Stamp sentiment on scrap Thick Whisper White CS and cut with cooresponding stitched square framelit.  Attach  together with SNAIL.  Add single dimensional where the card covers the artwork and double dimensionals where it doesn’t and attach at lower left corner of card front.
  • Inside the Thick Whisper White layer is 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″attached with SNAIL.   Stamp the leaf using Lemon Lime Twist with Old Olive twice without reinking.

How much fun was that?  I hope you will be inspired to give these techniques a try.

Summer Day…

They say you never forget how to ride a bike…which is good as I have one and love to ride it.  Willis, my Yorkie, loves to ride in the basket but won’t walk on a lead…

Is he cute or what?  But you put a lead on him and he’ll sit down and refuse to move!

Finally my framelits arrived to the Bike Ride Stamp Set (which I won at OnStage Savannah)!  Here’s my first card using the whole bundle…
