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.

My Favorite Things…

Finally home from our baseball tournament adventures…those who participate will relate.

And waiting for me here at home was my first demo order from the annual catalog!  There are so many products I couldn’t wait to get my hands on…but a girl has to start somewhere…

Combining the stencil paste (awesome!) with water coloring and that gorgeous crinkled seam binding is the first project off my desk.

A glamour close up of the Micron Pen doodling…

A side view hoping to show dimension of paste…

and inside with more paste and one of my favorite sentiments.

Workspace in the studio is covered with so much new product.  It’s hard to organize when you want to use everything at once.

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

Stuff

Paper:  Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Thick Whisper White Cardstock, plus water color paper.

Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake and Old Olive

Stamps:  Floral Phrases and Beautiful Bouquet (sentiments)

Tools ‘N Embellishments:  5/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding Berry Burst, Linen Thread, Embossing Paste, Pattern Party Decorative Masks, Palette Knives, Micron Pen, SU! Markers Powder Pink, Berry Burst, Old Olive and Lemon Lime Twist.

Digits

The Berry Burst 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 with SNAIL

The Thick Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Use a small amount of paste and a drop of Crumb Cake.  Work color in with palette knife.  Tape stencil over top of cardstock with Washi Tape.  Apply paste with knife and spread to cover the top half of paper.  Remove stencil and clean stencil and knife with water.  Let paper layer dry. It’s pretty fast. If you want to add some stenciling to the inside Thick Whisper White layer, now would be the best time.  Tip:  If you have paste left over, create a new layer to work on later. 

Cut a piece of water color paper 4″ x 2-1/4″.  Color rose stamp with marker starting with lightest color and adding darker shade last.  Spritz with water and stamp directly to water color paper.  Let dry.  Using a Micron Pen create details on stamped image and adding scribbles and dots.  Add this layer over the bottom of the stenciled layer.   Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black at bottom left corner of water color paper.

Add a piece of Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding around the place where the two layers meet using SNAIL.

Add combined layer to card front over Lemon Lime Twist.

Make a bow with several loops and tie center with Linen Thread.  Tie a piece of Linen Thread around seam binding on card and use this to tie bow to card front.  You can anchor the bow with glue dots.

Inside the Lemon Lime Twist layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Attach with SNAIL.

The Thick Whisper White layer is 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″.  Stamp sentiment at top right with Archival Basic Black.  Add this layer over Lemon Lime Twist layer.

Honestly the Stencil Paste is much easier to use than I thought.  Just be sure to rinse clean as soon as you have used it.  This paste opens up our deminsional creative opportunities to a whole new level.  And the seam binding has always been a favorite for me so I’m thrilled to have these new colors to work with.

I am thrilled to tell you the my Jameson’s baseball team coached by my son, Jeff, qualified to attend the State Championship Tournament in West Palm Beach in three weeks!!!  We had a grand time this past week and I thought I’d share a couple of the pictures…

A poster made by the tournament photographer showing several shots of Jameson playing.

Lyla is Jameson’s biggest cheerleader…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

it happens…

Hope you are inky and HaPpY today!

Guy Note…

Probably most of us make a lot of cards (I know I do!), and it’s a pretty good bet that the majority of the cards we make are for our feminine friends and family.

Why is that?

  1. It would be easy to list several reasons quickly…
  2. Girl cards are cuter so more fun to make
  3. We can use flowers which most of us love
  4. And sweet, soft colors…etc.

And while all that may be true, guys like getting cards too.  Today’s card post is definitely for a male…

Now that’s cute in a guy sort of way…note the camo pen!

Here’s a close up…

In this side view you can see the frame and pen are raised with dimensionals.

And a peek inside…

Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…

Stuff

  • Paper:  Very Vanilla cardstock, water color paper and Wood Texture Designer Series Paper Stack
  • Ink:  Archival Basic Black, Soft Suede
  • Stamps:  Crafting Forever, Background Bits, Gorgeous Grunge (splat) and Soft Sayings Stamp Kit (sentiment)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  5/8″ Burlap Ribbon, Stitched Square Framelits, sponge,  water color pencils and small round brush

Digits

  • The Very Vanilla base card is 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored, folded and burnished at 5-1/2″
  • The DSP layer is 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ attached to card front with SNAIL
  • The top Very Vanilla layer is 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Stamp sentiment in Archival Basic Black.  Add script and splats in Soft Suede stamped off first.  Add a piece of Burlap Ribbon around the top of this layer and then add layer to card front over DSP with multipurpose glue.  Weight this layer with acrylic blocks to set.
  • Using a couple of pieces of burlap, tie a knot around ribbon.
  • Cut a frame using DSP and Stitched Square Framelits.  I used Strip Adhesive to attach to card front framing the sentiment.
  • The pen was stamped in Archival Basic Black. Let dry.  Color with Gray, Black and Old Olive water color pens.  Use small round brush and some water to smooth colors.  Fussy cut pen and add to card front using Strip Adhesive on back leaving a space with no adhesive so that the pen will fit over the frame.
  • Inside the Very Vanilla layer is 3-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede.  Add splat stamp and script in Soft Suede that has been stamped off.  Cut a piece of DSP 1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and attach with SNAIL at bottom of layer.
  • The envelope isn’t pictured but I did add the script and splat stamps in Soft Suede to the lower left corner to coordinate with the card front.

So since this card sentiment says “just a note” this card would work for a birthday or thank you or just thinking of you.  Hope this helps you with ideas for the guys in your life.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

i’m smiling…

Stay inky…be HaPpY!

Daisy Bouquet…

Can you think of anything better than taking someone a daisy bouquet that will never die?  Me either!

So today I’m posting just that…

How sweet is that?

I used this arrangement today at my New Catalog Open House and added Baby’s Breath to fill it in.  I should have taken another pic for you, but I’m so tired right now, I can’t move.

Suffice it to say as cute as it looks here the Baby’s Breath did add to the overall look.

This little pail (which I got at Ikea) is about 5″ across and it took 15 daisies to make it look this full.  I made three taller ones, five medium and seven short ones.

There are three different colored flowers:

  • White with Daffodil Delight sponging
  • Pink Powder cardstock with Fresh Fig sponging
  • Pink Powder cardstock with Berry Burst stamping and sponging.

All have Daffodil Delight cardstock 1/2″ circle punched and stamped with detailed center stamp.

I curled one petals under on one layer and left the top layer flat.  Hot glued together alternating petals.

There is a Styrofoam ball cut in half hot glued inside the pail to hold the arrangement.  The top of the ball was covered in hot glue and shredded paper added on top.

Florist wire was twisted in a circle and bent flat.  The flowers were hot glued to this flat area.

The pail was decorated with Berry Burst 3/8″ Ribbon and a half flower (all hot glued) and the label was made with the Pretty Label Punch and stamp set.

This whole thing took me about 30 minutes to put together.  I think I’m going to keep it for a while on my desk.  It just makes me happy to look at it.

Hope you are having a great day and plan to stop back by tomorrow.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

today is one.

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!
