2018-08-06; 1-on-1 craft day with Jan, stamped watercolor & review

2018/08/06

The last card was this stamped watercolor card.  I was pleased to find out that Jan had never tried one of these style of cards before.

The mountains and clouds were free-handed.  All of the other images are stamped designs.  I think the detailing that we added to the barn really made a difference in the finished look.

Even though this is a relatively flat card, it has 6 layers counting the base and popped up banner.

And finally, the review.  There is one card we did not get to finish.  I’m saving that design for the next time we get together!

2018-08-05; 1-on-1 craft day with Jan, Cricut inch worm

2018/08/05

Today’s sample is a Cricut cut card.  The card on the left is the original design and the card on the right is where the extra banners from the chicken card was put to use.  I like the one with the banner a little better.

The Cricut cartridge used was Walk in my Garden.  I just got this a few weeks ago.  Since Jan was the person who really got me going with the Cricut I wanted to be sure to include a Cricut designed card in our card making day.

Here is a close up of the inch worm.  He didn’t have any detailing so we added chalk and drew on a face.  The card base was cut at 4.25″.

The sentiment is by CardzTV and went with our inch worm design perfectly!  The mat is a no-brand set of dies that I bought on-line.

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for the full wrap up of all of the cards we made last Monday along with a review in case you missed any of them.

2018-08-04; 1-on-1 craft day with Jan, rummage sale find at Jan’s house

2018/08/04

There is a background story to this card.  Last Saturday I went to a rummage sale that my friend Jan was having.  She is the same person that I had over for the 1-on-1 craft day.  When I was visiting with her I picked up a couple of craft items.  One of them was a rubber stamp set.  I thought it would be fun to make a card for our 1-on-1 craft day using what I’d bought from her.  Here is the quick design I put together.

Here is a close up.  We used chalk to color the image, dotted the center with glitter glue and then sprayed over-all with a mixture of hairspray and PearlEx pigment powder to seal.

We used a large Martha Stewart boarder punch; a dollar store acrylic frame, chalk, baker’s twine and a foil sticker.  To make these super fast, I had the Scan-n-Cut cut the flowers and leaves out for us.

2018-08-03; 1-on-1 craft day with Jan, designing with chickens

2018/08/03

This post will show my preparations for a 1-on-1 craft day with a stamping friend.  Here’s the craft table waiting for us to get started.

2018-07-30 1-0n-1 craft day with Jan (4)

All the projects are ready and laid out….

2018-07-30 1-0n-1 craft day with Jan (5)

Here I was designing a layout.

2018-07-30 1-0n-1 craft day with Jan (2)

Then the images were cut out the easy way.  This is the Brother Scan-n-Cut 2 cutting out all of the chickens.

The card on the left is the one I brought to the table.  The card on the right is what we decided on when we put the cards together.  This gave us extra banners and you will see them in one of the other projects we worked on.  Watch for them in a few days.

Here is the improved design.

The stamped wood grain and popped up windows.  Wood grain is a large background stamp by Stampin’ Up and the the windows were cut using the Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges at 2″.

The banner were die cut with a no-brand die.  The openings in the die were backed with orange holographic paper from the dollar store.

Last week I saw this card on a stamping friends blog. I have dies like that and gave it a try.

Here is my version of the card
2018-08-01 (2)

sentiment by Hero Arts, stamped medallion by Fiskars (Cameo Ovet set), flowers by Stampin Up and punched leaves by Martha Stewart.

Here is a view of the card open.  I cut away about 1/3 of the front panel and replaced with the scrolled die cut.

2018-08-01; August 2018 Calendar

2018/08/01

This year the calendar project was made up of a team of two players. We each made 6 pages (duplicating one to keep for ourselves) and then mailing it to the other. So that the pages would vary we each took every other month. This month the calendar page was created by Alice.

2018-07-31; Beauty is Everywhere

2018/07/31

I’ve been outta touch…vacation and then prepping for a 1-0n-1 craft day.  I didn’t want to share my efforts ahead of time because I know my friend checks out my blog daily.

The card I’m sharing today is very similar to one that I showed my girlfriend how to do at our 1-on-1 day.  You will see the project day items in the next few days.

I call this stamped water coloring.  The ladies of YouTube make it look so easy.  Assuredly, it is not.   Everything is rubber stamped except the clouds, mountains and gravel path.  I did add a few extra grass blades with a brush as well.

This plain flat card is a whopping 5 layers including the base.

2018-07-27 (1)

The sentiment is from a set I bought on line–no brand name.  I bought it only because it was $1.  It was stamped on water color paper and hand cut into the banner.

And one last look at the card before you go on about your day…

The trees are by Stampin’ Up.

The grass, foliage and building are by art impressions.

All of the dies used were from non-branded  sets.
