Rad Dad…

Did you miss me yesterday?  That’s the first post I’ve missed in over a year…but it was for a good reason.  Look at this little bean…

I drove my daughter Kelly back to Nashville to stay a few more days before she has to head home to Seoul.  We took a little shopping trip to a majestic yarn store and “little bean” went with us!  How cute are he and my g’daughter Kendall?

By the time I got home (the traffic was unbelievable) it was too late to post.  But what I have to show you today is worth the wait!

Combining a couple of stamp sets…

A little close up…

For Dad…

Yesterday I said wedding season is coming and we need to be prepared…but Father’s Day will also be here before you know it.

And the Nailed It stamp set comes to the rescue with all those cut tools…so today’s post is a pair of jeans with some tools attached and a message on the pocket…

Check out the close up…

A retired background stamp called Netting was used to give texture to the jeans.  And how about that tag on the pocket?

and here you can peek a bit inside.

Easter Flowers…

Today’s post is the opposite technique that I used on Monday to make this card…

So today I’ll show you how to spritz your inked stamp before stamping the water color paper for an entirely different look and you can decide which you like better…

Here’s the same stamp set using the opposite stamping technique (and different colors, of course)

a close up…

a little peek inside…

So what do you think?  This one is certainly crisper looking but still not fussy and exact.  Where the first one looks sort of dreamy to me.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Soft Sky Cardstock, plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Soft Sky, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizazz
  • Stamps:  Penned & Painted, Suite Sentiments
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Window Sheet, water spritzer, journaling or micron pen

Digits

  • The Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The Soft Sky layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL
  • The Water color layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Using the solid stamp for each flower and leaf, ink up each stamp and spritz with water before stamping.  Stamp shading stamp for each flower and leaves.  Add outline stamp with Archival Basic Black.
  • Add sentiment with Archival Basic Black.
  • Cut your window sheet 3-3/4″ x 5″, place a small amount of SNAIL in center and take most of the sticky off with your fingers then place centered on this top layer.
  • With your journaling pen or micron pen draw a border on the card front skipping where the art interrupts the line.

Do you like this technique better?  Give them both a try and see the difference.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

like today.

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!

Friend Flowers…

Life would be so much less without friends.  We depend on our friends during difficult times and love sharing life’s joys with them.

I am so grateful to have really “old” friends (like grammar school!) and really “new” friends too.

So today’s post celebrates friendship…

A water color technique which I will reverse in another post this week…

a close up…

there’s a mistake here I will confess to “liking”…

The technique requires water color paper which I love working with because it does most of the work for you…and better!

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits (including the confession)…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Thick Whisper White and Rich Razzleberry Cardstock plus water color paper
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Perfect Plum, Soft Sky, Pear Pizazz
  • Stamps:  Penned & Painted and Suite Sentiments
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Water Spritzer

Digits

  • The Thick Whisper White base card is 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored, folded and burnished at 4-1/4″
  • The Rich Razzleberry layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached with SNAIL
  • The water color layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Spritz paper with water.  The more you want your color to “work” the more water.  Ink up the solid flower and leaf stamps and stamp wet water color paper.  Let the paper do its job for you then dry with heat gun if you don’t have the patience to wait (I never can)
  • Using the solid shading stamps for leaves and flowers stamp over dried ink.
  • Stamp Archival Basic Black outline over each flower and leaf.  Let dry or heat…you know what I do!
  • Stamp sentiment in Archival Black and mount water color paper over Rich Razzleberry layer with multipurpose glue.

Did you find the oopsie?  After spritzing my water color paper and stamping the first flowers which I wanted across just the bottom of the card, I realized I had set the spritzer bottle half way on the top of the water color paper.  The bottle had residue from working with Ken Oliver’s Color Burst dry pigment on the bottom.  Ugh!  Just for the heck of it I spritzed the half circle of color and you can see the result…I loved it!

Just another example of how “mistakes” can sometimes be the beautiful opportunity you didn’t expect.  This card and technique are really fun.  I hope you will give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Sweetums is driving to Nashville today to pick up my daughter, Kelly.  She is coming to visit for a couple of days before she returns to Seoul, South Korea…and maybe catch up on her sleep.  I don’t know if he will be able to pry little Henry loose from her snuggles!  I’m so looking forward to our time together!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

always a good forecast…

Keep those fingers inky…you’ll be HaPpY!

Easter Dogwood…

Recently cute bunnies were posted to celebrate the upcoming Easter season, but today’s post features spring dogwood blooms.

Have your dogwoods bloomed yet?  Mind are buds but will be in bloom before Easter.

Here’s today’s card…

and a close up…

peeking inside…

This is my first time using the water color pencils on Kraft Paper…I learned a few things and hope to do more this week, but thought this one turned out well.  I’m not sure if this is a dogwood bloom but it was close enough for me.

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits

Stuff

  1. Paper:  Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Kraft Cardstock
  2. Ink:  Archival Basic Black
  3. Stamps:  Penned & Painted, Suite Sayings (sentiment) and Birthday Blooms (dots)
  4. Tools ‘n Embellishments:  Water Color Pencils, Blender Pen, Window Sheet

Digits

  1. The Thick Whisper White base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  2. The Kraft Cardstock layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Stamp leaves and flowers with outline stamp in Archival Basic Black.  Be sure to let this ink dry…it takes a bit.  Or you can heat it (like me!)  I have no patience…
  3. Color all images with White Water Color Pencil (your colors will be brighter).  Add Old OLive to leaves, Daffodil Delight to flower centers and Melon Mambo to shade from centers of flower petals out.  Smooth colors with Blender Pen.  Be sure to clean tip between each color change.
  4. Cut a window sheet 3-3/4″ x 5″ to use as a template to draw border skipping when you meet the leaves or flowers.  Add dots wherever you like them.
  5. Inside the card the border was drawn again and dots were added to coordinate with card front.

I’ve been playing around with this same set and water color paper.  If it turns out, I’ll post it next week.

  • I would be a poor SU! Demo if I didn’t tell you that until March 31st the best deal SU! makes is still effective.  You can become a demo (with absolutely no obligations to host parties or sell anything) and get $125 worth of product (anything in the catalog!) and only pay $99!  Whoa!  And not only that great deal, but you can pick out two additional stamp sets (anything in the catalog) for FREE!  Sounds like a “no brainer” right?  But the “cherry on top”?  You can be a Rambling Rose “BUD”, meet people all over the world and attend amazing SU! events.  Seriously, there are even more perks I can tell you about…we need to talk!  Remember, this is only available until this coming Friday.

When I posted the Flower Truck earlier this week, I might have mentioned how much I love that old truck.  So today here’s another “old truck” just for us “vintage” girls…

Isn’t that fun?  I know several girl friends who would love this birthday card.  Maybe I need to make more!

Yesterday was so exciting to see my daughter who is visiting from Seoul, South Korea, and my granddaughter who just became a mommie…  And, of course, Little Henry, (they call him Hank).  You just forget how little a newborn is.  But no matter, he felt wonderful, snuggly and sweet!

You are looking at “love at first sight!”  As time passes, I will try not to bore you with baby pics…but it will be hard!

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

never happens.

But I do know if your fingers are inky…you are HaPpY!

Spring Flower Truck…

And Spring is really here!  Every thing is popping out of the ground and pollen is everywhere….

But this little truck has a load of spring flowers to share…

lots of posies to share…

  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Pool Party

  • Remove background mask and stamp sentiment in top left corner.
  • Punch small flowers in Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party and Calypso Coral.  Add dimension by pushing your blunt end of the Piercing Tool into the back of the flowers while lying on Piercing Mat.  Add to back of truck using Glue Dots.  Add small dots to centers of flowers with Basic Black Marker or Journaling Pen.
  • Inside the Pool Party layer is 3-3/8″ x 4-3/8″ with a 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White layer on top.  Add inside card with SNAIL.  Stamp sentiment with Archival Basic Black Ink.
