2018-12-09; Double easel card with monoprint

2018/12/09

Today’s sample is my sample #4 of the Distress Ink Monoprints.   I don’t have all of the fabulous dies that interchanged and were perfect frames as Jennifer McGuire’s samples of 25 cards using this technique.  I used what I did have on hand.  To make these backgrounds shine, that is just what I used them; for the wonderful backgrounds that they are.

Here I created a double easel card.  The 1st generation print is on the larger rear panel.  The 2nd generation is on the small front panel, which is lighter colored but the same print.

The background was made using a Stampin’ Up (SU) large background stamp of bamboo.

The 2nd side; and you can see peaking out the interior of the card, which I lined and is just as pretty as the front of the design.

The sentiment by TAC (The Angel Company) was stamped onto a Cricut die cut from Elegant Edges cut at 3″.  I also cut a border to match at 1″ and can be seen in the photo above as the scallop edge behind the medallion.

I went into my stash and added a couple of butterfly’s.  This is the upper butterfly made of pearly mint green and vellum stamped with silver metallic ink.

The lower butterfly in shades of green is a dollar store sticker.

A close look at the pine cone & layers.  The layers were sponged with distress ink. The base layer of the tag was stamped with a texture cube by Stampendous.  The pine cone and branches were colored with Prisma Pencils.

2018-12-07; Distress Ink Monoprint #3; You make me so happy

2018/12/07

I created the background print (Distress Ink Monoprint)  using this stamp; picked up at a rummage sale a few years ago.  It is by JRL Design V122 Leafy Print.

After having created the monoprint background I made the card & used these dollar store stickers to help decorate.

The card is a mini sized one measuring 3.5×4.75″.  I made it this size as I found an envelope in my drawer and made the card to fit.

Here is a close look at those awesome stickers.  Yup, gonna use more of these!

The stamp & die cut set is by Hero Arts  DC150 Happy Stamp & Cut.  Notice the frame in the background?  Cut with the Cricut from Elegant Edges at 3.75″.  I stacked 4 of the frames and embossed the top one with a Sizzix leaf embossing folder before adding it to the top of the stack.  I also die cut the happy 4 times, stacking and then topping with crystal glaze.  The picture makes it look black, but it is actually navy blue as is the stamped sentiment.

Here are the layers.  I helped to support the dollar store sticker by adding a few more pieces of 3-d mounting tape.  I also added some Nuvo pearl drops.

2018-12-05; Stockings for Christmas

2018/12/05

A stamping friend sent me stocking & glitter DP with my last note from her. So I went looking for what I might have to go with it.

2018-11-21 (1)

Create a Critter 2 & Elegant Edges were the two cartridges that I used to assemble this card. The stockings were cut at 3″, 2-3/4″ and 1-3/4″.

2018-11-21 (3)

The sentiment is from a mini gift set I received some years ago by Hampton Art called Mini Flip Flops (SC0459 Holiday Tag). I lined it up so the stocking sentiment was front & center.

Here you can see the layers that have been popped up.

Tag #2.

The base of the tag is the planner scrapbook paper.  I added a piece of glossy card stock that I had sponged, then stamped with a texture cube by Stampendous.  The rectangle sentiment is by Hero Arts.

A close look at the layers…base + 3 more layers and gems.

The bottom of the tag where the gems are, is stamped with an image from Waltzing Mouse.  I bought this from a rummage sale at the same time the scrapbook papers were given to me.  You will see additional tags using this set.

2018-12-03; Christmas Wreath; Cricut Winter Wonderland

2018/12/03

I’ve brought out the Cricut to play again.  It makes for a nice change of pace in my card making.

Today’s sample was made using the cartridge Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland.  The wreath was cut at 3.5″.  I added some pine branches (Impression Obsession), velvet ribbon, glitter glue and an embossing folder.

Here is a close look at the wreath.

And a view of the layers; mostly flat except for the bow.  I wasn’t able to tie a normal bow using the velvet ribbon; I pieced it together, much like a paper bow.
