Stampendous Build a Bouquet Card and SALES!!!

Such fun! I can only hope that one day our 3 Hydrangea bushes that we planted last year will give me a jar full! lol  I see green coming up though, so there’s hope!

I had fun playing with this stamp and coordinating die set from Stampendous.

Inking/daubing directly on the stamp with Distress Stains in the MISTI, like I’ve seen others doing, pull the color around with a waterbrush and paint in some details with the same waterbrush. No two alike!  ***Just discovered this though while making the links for what I used.  Distress Stains aren’t available anymore…they are in spray form now.  So I linked to some dauber bottles to put the Distress Sprays in.  Sorry about this but easy fix!

I stamped the jar in Ranger Archival black ink….my go to black for everything other than Copic coloring right now.

I stamped the plaid background with a Concord and 9th set using coordinating Distress Oxide ink pads.  That was fun…a gal could make plaid all day! lol

I decided the jar needed to sit on something…so those ovals…they come in so handy for that!

I think I need to try some other techniques with this set too… so many flowers and even a butterfly in the set and another vase! Even a pop-up with the Stampendous pop up die!

It’s a flower time of year for sure!  YAY!

AND it’s SALE time!  Check these out! Copics on sale at Simon Says Stamp!

 

AND at Scrapbook.com it’s an EXTRA 10% off everything!  Coupon expires Sunday, May 6th at midnight, PST.  They have these stamps and dies!

Memory Box Stencils and Dies…

Hi everyone!  There is a Stencil Blog Blitz going on over on the Memory Box Blog, HERE.  Every day there is a chance to win a stencil,  just by leaving a comment on the blog post each day.

In today’s post, Laura is showing the Pop Dots Stencil.  I have a card made with it and the poppystamps Mod Flower Background die matches up with it perfectly!  I embossed the stencil by running a piece of card-stock through the big shot,  then laying the stencil back over the embossed piece as a mask,  I used several colors of Distress Stains to color the circles…Spun Sugar, Peeled Paint, Barn Door and Broken China.

Then I added a banner cut with poppystamps Classic Ribbons die,  I stamped on it with a Memory Box Washi Chevron stamp and  Wishing You a Happy Day stamps

PamSparksModFlowerClose
Some Doodlebug Sequins to embellish and then glued together with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

I posted a stencil card on the Memory Box Blog  for the Blog Blitz on Saturday, using the Texture, Line Up stencil, Delphinium and Stems mini stencils from the Garden collection.

I inked through the stencils with Distress Inks and the new Round Ink Blending Tools. (they are awesome by the way!)

Then I cut the Rhone Butterfly Wings die in the panel and layered Lagoon card-stock under it.

The Blooming Branch die is glued on behind the Classic Ribbons Banner and the word FLEUR is cut with the new Urban Uppercase Alphabet die set.

And I have found that I LOVE to spatter!  Two colors of spray mist spattered on the panel.  Shake the mists side to side to mix, unscrew the cap and tap with your finger to spatter the ink off the tube.  Works great!

I used my Perfect Layers mini Rulers  and Cutting mat to cut the mat for the floral scene.  Link over on the right… love these rulers!

I have more cards to post and photos and cards from the Great Yosemite Stamp Escape too!  I’ll be back soon!

Thanks for stopping by, it’s good to be back. I have missed you ALL!

p.s. I still haven’t been able to get Google to recover my You Tube Channel.  It’s so discouraging. This is for sure one time when technology is not my friend.  boo.

There is one video on my blog Facebook page though.  I wish I’d loaded them all to FB!  Who’d a thunk!

An ATC and two tags…

Merry Christmas to all!  Every year I’m more amazed at how fast time goes by!  ssssshhhh I don’t want to admit it’s because I’m older and just slower! pout!

Here’s an ATC (artist trading card) I just made for a “four for four” mail swap…had fun with the  In the Meadow stamps and dies from PTI (Papertrey Ink).  The Winter Town stamp is from Hero Arts.  I used Distress stains to ink up the stamp… can’t remember which two now…ugh!   Frosted Lace stickles for the glitter.

For stamping and die cutting the sledder, here’s what I did… I die cut the sledder,  tacked it down with a little tape to my craft mat.  Used the stamp a ma jig to stamp the image on the die cut.  I tried stamping it first and then cutting but I just couldn’t get it lined up good enough to suit me that way.  The partial silhouette of the snowman is an older Stampin Up punch. The sentiment is from PTI also.

A couple gift tags…

This was for our oldest daughter, Heather.  Her birthday is Christmas Day.  The nurses had sewn up flannel stockings for the Christmas Day babies…I have photos of her as a baby in that stocking.  When this Tilda image came out,  I had to have it!  Tilda is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers.  Hair E30, 15, 08. 17 and 18 or 19,  can’t remember at the moment.  Skin E000, 00, 21 and cheeks diluted R20.  Green BG93, 96, Red W3, R35, 37, 39 and 59.  Fluff E40,41, 42, 43 and a white gel pen.

I stamped this Hero Arts typewriter on kraft card-stock and on natural card-stock too.  I cut out the natural and adhered it to the typewriter after I stamped the message on it with the stamp a ma jig.  The two holly leaves are an EK Success punch and the bow is an old quickutz die.

I could go on creating for Christmas for months and still have new stuff to use!  Crazy!  My favorite time of year!  What a mess I have in my stamp room! EEK!  oh well,  I’m resting up today and enjoying the Christmas tree a little bit longer!

Here’s what 1800 lights on a 9 foot Christmas tree look like at night and it didn’t tip over once this year!  yea! lol  (my photo skills don’t do it justice!)

Merry Christmas and God bless you!  I appreciate your friendship and support through this blog!

Chill E. Pinebough and Wish U. Goodcheer…

Don’t you love cute, cute snowmen with awesome names?!  Four delightful new snowpeople from CC Designs Sweet November line, illustrated by Amy Young, in the store HERE.   Chill E. Pinebough is in for a freezin’ good time on this tag!

Snowman Wish U. Goodcheer is telling us to sparkle!  Both tags have sentiments on them from the new Amy R Stamps Snowman Sayings set.  So FUN! The November release is in the store HERE!

Here’s what I did…

I stamped the snowpeople with Spun Sugar Distress ink on this kraft card-stock.

I shook up the Picket Fence Distress Stain real good,  then dabbed it on in the areas you want to be white.

After the white distress stain was dry,  I inked up the snowman with Versafine Onyx black ink and with my stamp a ma jig, I stamped over the image again.

OK,  I cheated on  Chill E.’s stocking cap,  I painted the stain on those stripes.

The rest is color pencil.

For Wish U.’s hat and scarf, I stamped on another piece of kraft, cut them out and glued them on top, then colored with color pencils.

Tombow Mono Multi glue to hold the vintage glass shard glitter on.

Twig Distress ink on the edges of the tag, applied with the ink blending tool…then Picket Fence Distress Stain dabbed on.

Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  The ribbon is probably May Arts or American Crafts.

Click over to the ATS blog HERE, to see the other two snowpeople…Adorn D. Yard and Dazzle M. Nightly.  Don’t you just love the names… I know… I already said that!  Link up for a chance to win too!

CC Designs November stamps and mitten die will be in the store to purchase tonight at 10 p.m. HERE!

Thanks for coming over another day!!!  Whew!  a big week for blog posting… time for some R & R and a visit to your blog! hehe
