Vintage Rose Mixed Media Card

Today I have a mixed media card I made using a bit of this and a bit of that for a lovely vintage feel.

I started off by stamping the gothic stone case window onto a piece of white cardstock.

I then applied DecoArt Modeling Paste through the stencil over the lower left and upper right quarters of the card panel; carefully removed the stencil and let it dry. 

The upper left and lower right quadrants were coated with a layer of  DecoArt Media Crackle Paste.

Once the paste had dried and crackled I applied a layer of watercolor to the "stone".

The Roses image was stamped several times, colored, fussy cut and paper pieced back together then affixed around the window.

The panel was them mounted onto a black card base.

This is the final day to enter the Hard as Stone challenge on the LCS/CV Blog!

More Hoot-y Owl Fun

Today I wanted to share a card I made just for the fun of it using several stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry...  I started off by stamping the tree image from the Budding Spring set using Acorn VersaFine Clair ink.  Next I stamped the owl image from Hoo Ray with Pinecone VF Clair.  Then I went a little crazy with the little dot branch and stamped the foliage on the tree. 

I used another shade of green VF ink to stamp the grass then added flowers in both yellow for the tiny trio of flowers and Tulip Red for the 5 petal flower. 

Finally I stamped the sentiment to the panel; trimmed, corner rounded and mounted it to a red card blank.

Stencil Crazy!

Yes I have gone stencil crazy with this fun and unique piece of wall art!
Stencils were a focus point for the Imagine team this month and I just went a bit wild with them.  I couldn't decide on one particular technique or design so I went with all of them.

Check out the Imagine blog for more details...

Butterfly Kisses Princess Pocket Letter

Hello my friends....This month on the Rinea blog we are partnering with Joy Clair Stamps to bring you some fantastic combos!  Today on the Rinea Blog I am sharing how I made this fun 

Most of the butterflies are hand cut but there are a couple like the one on the left that is a die-cut from Spellbinders.

I stamped a few sentiments on vellum and ran them through my Xyron to get good adhesive coverage.  

I also die cut a few words from Ebony/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to really make them pop.

Hope you take a peek at the tutorial and get inspired to make your own!

Whooo Loves Ya?

Hello Friends...

Sorry it's been a while - life has been taking over art.
I wanted to take a moment to share a card I made for my dh...
Our 32 anniversary is coming up tomorrow and I thought this would be a fun card to give to him.

It was made using one of the newest stamps sets from 
Rubber Stamp Tapestry - Hoo-Ray, sentiments from Hootin' Sentiments plus the branch stamp.

All of the images were stamped using a combination of  Versafine Clair and VersaMagic inks. After I was finished stamping I die-cut the image and mounted it on a red scallop circle. Mounted it on my card and ta-da! All finished.  I hope he likes it :)s

Hard as Stone - LCD Challenge

Hello Everyone!

It's the 15th and you know what that means...
a new challenge over at Lost Coast Designs!

This challenge is all about items as hard as stone and for some reason this made me think of masculine themed cards so I went with it.  I wanted to do something a bit sophisticated so I went with a minimal color scheme keeping things fairly neutral.  It all actually started with the blue/grey ribbon I found in my stash. It has a slight pattern which is also smooth and shiny at the same time which reminded me of stone.

I stamped the Architecture Square image on white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Morning Mist which is a charcoal grey color. I inked the edges with a bit of Memento London Fog and added Sky Blue highlights on all of the lines and arrows.

The square was then cut out and matted on black cardstock. A vintage book page was mounted onto a black card panel then wrapped with the inspiration ribbon. I adhered the image to the card using double stick foam tape and finished it off with several little black brads.
