Hope canvas (Picture Tutorial)

Hello friends!  Hope you are having a fantastic day, I have been a bit quite around here, sorry about that. I am behind the scenes working on some new projects you will see very soon.
Today, I want to show you another picture tutorial I created for eclectic Paperie. I forgot to take few pictures and some didn't turn out good, but I hope you like this one and inspire you to create.

Here are the details (Sorry, I forgot to take few pictures)
 
  •  Paint all the circles with Ginger Peach Twinkling H2O, set aside to dry, it will take few minutes. (Ohhh, I love this color!)
 
 
  • Add your circles, leaves, stems to your canvas with seal glue. Take your Faber Castell Black Big Brush pen and define all edges, then add a button to each center flower, Iwent ahead and wrote "hope" with my black marker.
 
 
This is final product!  I added Gold 3D Stamp Paint to some of the borders, I used my finger since I wanted a rough look.  

Hope you like it! I would love to read what do you think about this project.
Have a fantastic day!

This is the project I have for you, on Sunday, I found out about the birthday to a sweet lady who doesn't like to celebrate or even mention about her birthday, so since I didn't have my project all done, I decided to make a birthday card for her, ad although her birthday is on the 31st, I will be giving her this card today since I will be teaching at church, craft night are always fun!!

  • Adhere ribbon and lace (from this kit). Stamp the flower center from the Dahlia Bouquet set in Pink ink.
  • Stamp Small Tattered Blossoms flowers on patterned paper, die-cut flowers using coordinated dies. Ink all edges with red ink, mount flowers together and add a red dewdrop on each center.
  • Die-cut a couple of vines from Sweet Juliet Set, adhere them behind the flowers.
  • Stamp sentiment from Bold Vintage Floret in Jet Black Archival. (I stamped only half of the sentiment)

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello friends! Today I have a very cute Valentine card using my new "Valentine Critters" set! Anytime I look at this set,  I smile :) I think all the images in this set are adorable.

This card is super clean and simple, yet cute! I stamped the elephant image on a piece of White Cardstock and colored it with Spectrum Noir Markers: DGR1,3,6; GG1,2,3,5; BGR1,2,3; FS5. Then I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black Archival ink and added a piece of chevron patterned paper, added zig-zag stitches. Die-cut a tiny heart and added it with dimensionals. Finally I added Crystal lacquer to the heart balloons and sprinkle clear glitter. After that was dried, I added the panel to a red card base.



I am submitting this card to:


Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Hello there (Picture tutorial)

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great day! The germs have visited this residence and we are feeling a bit sick, so since I don't have anything new, I want to share a tutorial I made few weeks ago for eclectic Paperie. This technique is fun!!

Let's get started!

Start with a piece of Distress Watercolor, stamp Joy image (by Catherine Scanlon) in Versamark Watermark ink, apply Seafoam White embossing powder over image and heat set.



Add Blood Orange Gelato over flowers and spread them with the tip of your finger (or sponge)



Mix Acqua Dolce & Banana Gelatos to create a green color, spread all over the leaves, color the center of the image with Banana Gelato. With the help of a baby wipe, remove excess.



Add Gold Gelatos to all the image edges. After that, spray the whole piece with  Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mists, set to dry, your piece will shimmer beautifully!



Create a dot background, apply White embossing paste using Fancy Pants Dots Stencil.



This is a very fun part! I wanted a match ribbon for my project, but any of the ribbon I own matched this project, so I decided to create my own!! Super easy!

You need Seam binding ribbon, Blood Orange Gelato and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mists


Color your ribbon with your Blood Orange Gelato, as much or as little you want, then spray your ribbon with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mist!


Click on the picture so you can see all the beautiful shimmery ribbon!!


This is the final result, I put all the pieces together, created a triple bow and added pearls to the flowers! I really love how vibrant these colors are together!

Mixed media inserts

Hello friends!! Hope you all are having a great day! Today, I want to show you another mixed media project I created yesterday, this time they are inserts for my Z Becky Brown bag. For this bag I used Ziva Windsor Blue inserts, added Gold Ferro Metallic Effect Paint randomly, set aside to dry, After few minutes I painted the inserts withPool Acrylic Paint (Ranger) and Twinkling H2O -Olive Vine, then masked the inserts with a Ranger Swirl Mask. Finally I stenciled flowers using Embossing Paste, colored the flowers with paint and let it dry.

These inserts were made in about 2 hours, so if I can do it, you can too!! Did I mention that mixed media/coloring/painting is so relaxing? I love it!!

I am submitting this project to:



Hope you like it as well!!
Have a fantastic day!

  • Dies coordinate with the Majestic Monarchs Clear Stamp Set
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
  • Die set - $14.75
This is a mini canvas, size 3" x 3"! I enjoyed creating this little piece of mixed media. Actually, this mini canvas was a "bad piece" I made few months ago, I was getting ready to toss it, glad I didn't.

  • Cover your canvas with a layer or two of gesso.
  • After it dried, paint it with Pool Acrylic Paint (Ranger), set aside to dry.
  • Stamp butterflies in Coffee and Sepia Archival ink.

  • Die-cut butterflies, stamp coordinated butterflies in Coffee Archival Ink, stamp sayings from Vintage Seed Packet set in Sepia Archival Ink, then sponge butterflies with Distress Inks (Antique Linen,  Mustard Seed, Wild Honey).
  • Cover your butterflies with VersaMark Ink, and add at least 3 layers of UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel), you are going to get a very nice glossy and smooth result. Love it!!
  • Add butterflies to canvas (I used my heat glue gun).
  • Stamp sentiment from "God is Bigger" set, cut sides, ink all edges and adhere it to canvas.
