Seaside Spray for Daisy Lane

Hello Stampers ~ You have got to see my beautiful Seaside Spray for Daisy Lane creation today.

I got my errands completed and did work on the beginning of some projects yesterday.  I had some techniques I wanted to do but they involved embossing and some drying time.  I got the images embossed and the next step completed so they are drying and I will finish them today.  Today I need to clean my ceiling fans and baseboards and swiffer my floors.  After that I will be in my studio where I have to make my video for tomorrow as well as some cards for next week.  I am having some internet issues.  It is the company’s mistake but it is frustrating.  Hopefully they have fixed the problem and it won’t happen again.

One of my favorite new In Colors is Seaside Spray.  It is a pretty blue.  I decided to use some coloring on the back of vellum to create my card today.  The Daisy Lane is one of the first bundles I ordered.  I love daisies so I had to add this set to my collection.  I stamped the 2 daisies on vellum using Whisper White craft ink.  I repeated this step so I had 2 large and 2 smaller daisies.  I also stamped and embossed 2 ferns also.  Alcohol markers were used to color the back of each of the images.  Whisper White embossing powder was used to emboss all the daisies and the coordinating punches were used to cut them out.  The ferns were fussy cut.  A piece of Seaside Spray panel was embossed using the Basket Weave embossing folder.  To put my card together, I used a Seaside Spray card base.  The embossed Seaside Spray panel was added to a slightly larger Whisper White panel.  A bow of the Silver Metallic edged ribbon was added at the top using Tear & Tape.  This panel was then added to the card base.  Glue dots were used to add the ferns to the large daisy.  This daisy was then added to the lower left hand corner of the card front using dimensionals.  The smaller flower was added just above the larger one using glue dots.  Here is the completed Seaside Spray for Daisy Lane creation.

A pretty blue and daisies are the makings of a great card. You have got to get the details for my Seaside Spray for Daisy Lane creation by clicking through.

Pretty Floral Essence Creation

Happy Friday Everyone ~ wait until you see my Pretty Floral Essence Creation today!

It’s Friday!  I have some errands to run this morning and then I am going to play in my studio.  I have an appointment for my car this afternoon.  I am hoping it does not take long so I can spend more time in my craft room.  I have some bookmarks to make, thank you cards to make, and cards for my blog.  Good thing I don’t have plans for this weekend.  I am hoping to get a lot of projects completed in my studio so I have posts for the next week.

I have been watching you tuber that does a lot of watercoloring.  I can’t wait to try some of her ideas to see if I can make projects as pretty as hers as she is very talented.  I decided to try one of her ideas.  She had used a flower spray and created a card front.  I decided to use a flower image and create my own floral spray and watercolor the image.  Here is the video showing how I created my Pretty Floral Essence Creation.

 

 

 

Here is the photo of the card so your can see all the details.

I am on a watercoloring kick lately. To see my video for this Pretty Floral Essence Creation just click the photo.

Embossing Folder Technique

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July ~ ready for an Embossing Folder Technique today?

I had a relaxing day yesterday.  We did our water aerobics and then spent time floating around in the pool again.  I had lunch when I got home and then went to Lowe’s.  I needed to get some more firring strips to reinforce the bottom of my drawers.  I then rearranged my bins in my attic storage since it was cool.  I put my bins with my baskets in there also.  I have some baskets I need to put in bins and then put them in the storage also.  Then I played!  Today I am planning on getting my strips cut so I can reinforce a few of my drawers and then I will play!  I am going to Barb’s for a cook out but that will still give me lots of time to play.  I have a lot to get done over the next week.

I saw a new to me technique on Facebook that I wanted to try.  This technique used supplies from other companies so I went looking at our supplies to see if I could recreate it.  I began with a panel of Pretty Peacock card stock that I embossed using the Country Floral embossing folder.  Using the Encore Gold ink pad I swiped it across the embossed panel adding ink to the raised portion.  The heat gun needs to be used on this to dry the ink before the next step.  Once the ink was dried, I then used the Versamark pad and pushed it onto half of the panel to cover it with the sticky ink.  Iridescent Ice embossing powder was added to the half of the card with the sticky ink.  This was then heat set.  I repeated the procedure with the other half of the card to make it sparkly also.  A bow was added using the retired Tea Room ribbon combo and Tear & Tape.  This panel was then added to a Very Vanilla card base.  The sentiment was cut from Gold Foil and then attached to card front using Multipurpose Liquid glue.  This card is really sparkly but you can’t tell from the photo.  After this was finished I wonder if it would have been better if I had used a lighter color card stock and maybe mix the Iridescent Ice with some clean embossing powder.  Sounds like another play session for me!  🙂  Here is the completed Embossing Folder Technique creation.

A sparkly Embossing Folder Technique was used for the card today. Very sparkly which you can't see so click the photo to get the details.

How About a Pink Rhinoceros From Animal Outing

Hello Stampers ~ How About a Pink Rhinoceros From Animal Outing creation today?

Well all the laundry is finally done!  The bedrooms are back in order.  That means I have today to play!  We will spend a little time up at the pool after our Water Aerobics class and then when I get home I will play in my studio so that I have some cards to post for the next few days.  I do want to dust my baseboards and chair rail as well as clean my fans.  I will probably do that on Thursday or Friday.  I do have to get the book marks made for the book club meeting so I will try and make one or 2 ideas tomorrow.  I also need to work on my cards for my card class next week.  I have a few ladies coming so I need to get them made.

Are you ready for a Pink Rhinoceros?  I had Melon Mambo and Animal Outing and had no idea what to do.  I opted to make a Pink Rhinocerous.  Here is the video showing how I made my How About a Pink Rhinoceros From Animal Outing creation.

Clean and Simple Beautiful Friendship

Hello Everyone ~ want to see a Clean and Simple Beautiful Friendship creation?

Oh My Gosh!  I cannot believe I did not post yesterday.  I had a card but with all my cleaning I must have missed writing my post.  Not sure why but I am thinking between all the laundry and cleaning on Sunday I must have totally missed writing my post.  I did manage to get the bathrooms cleaned yesterday and more laundry done.  All my cleaning is done but I still have more laundry to do.  I am going to see if I can get that finished today.  Then I can relax a little and make some cards for my blog.  I am meeting a lady later this afternoon to see about the possibility of rooming with her on a Canadian Trip.  A similar trip is on my bucket list.  I have always wanted to do the train trip up through Canada and Banff National Park and then on up to Alaska.  This trip is a bus trip and I will get to see Banff and several other National Parks.  I will not get to Alaska but that is okay as I will see most of all the National Parks that I had wanted to see.  The trip is next August so that gives me plenty of time to save my money.  I am hoping it works out.

We have a color challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments Paper Crafting Challenges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was not thrilled with these colors.  I don’t use Petal Pink nor Calypso Coral much as the colors to me are not true to the pads.  The Petal Pink is very pretty on the ink lid but when you stamp it it comes out orange looking.  The Calypso Coral is very harsh to be a Subtle.  These are just my opinions.  Knowing I had to use these colors presented a challenge for me.  I thought I would use the bubbles from Beauty Abounds and the butterflies.  But I needed a sentiment so I went to a new stamp set for one.  I began by stamping the bubbles using Mint Macaron and Petal Pink across a Whisper White panel at a diagonal.  I then stamped the sentiment in the lower left hand corner of the panel.  I stamped the 2 butterflies using Calypso Coral on scrap paper and fussy cut them out.  I realized after I had them cut out that there were dies to match them.  To add some other interest I used vellum and the leaf die from Bouquet Bunch dies and cut out 2 of them.  I added them at the top right of the panel with the butterflies on top to hold them in place.  This panel was added to a Mint Macaron panel which was then adhered to a Whisper White card base.  Here is my completed Clean and Simple Beautiful Friendship creation.

A simple card that was quick to make. Check out the details for my Clean and Simple Beautiful Friendship creation.
