I decided to do another page in my journal to finish off the spread from the one I shared a few days ago… after all in the current circumstances it’s a good thing to share art and pretty things!
I decided to use similar colour scheme, but different mediums and used bits that were on my desk from other projects or gifts from various swaps.
The starting point was using stampin up ink pads to add colour to the background in a really loose way, just pressing them and the edges of the pads onto the background. I also used a few stamps to add some shape and variation in depth of colour (Happy Celebrations and Gummiapan).
I then decided to create a large panel using the leftover Art by Marlene paper and a doily. I added texture to this using a Badass artchick stamp and frantage embossing powder.
I found a stamped piece with similar colours to add along with a sticker and then the main sentiment panel which I had been gifted at some point and was certainly something I need to read at the moment. I added stamping on the edge of this and ink to add some framing. Then I added the fussy cut feather that was from a piece of wallpaper I had been gifted in a swap ages ago… I was saving it for the right moment… and it turned out it was this page!
Next I added lots of doodling round panels and the finishing touches of the embossed hearts. The wooden hearts I inked with distress oxide and then embossed with a pearl effect powder which gave them a beautiful finish.
Love how this page looks and how it complimented the other page.
I’m on catch up for a couple of projects I never got round to sharing on my blog… two bunting swaps… one themed Fireworks and the other themed Christmas.
So the fireworks one I used paints to create the background and then did lots of stamping using Paperartsy stamps and a few other random stamps that I thought looked a little like fireworks. For each of them I stamped in distress oxide and then heat embossed with clear.
I then stamped the celebrate in versamark and used a sparkly white powder to heat set that. I added the little banner with good times and then some dots of stickles to add more sparkle and shine.
For the Christmas bunting I went for a patchwork background with different papers…
I then cut it down and sewed each of the seams and round the edge.
I then stamped the Darcy snowflakes and heat embossed them and added the Tim Holtz tree die cuts (these were cut from an alcohol ink background)
Next I created the little hill and stamped the snowman and coloured him with water colours.
I added the snow by using some matt medium and then sprinkling on the embossing powder.
I finished off with a Tim Holtz sticker.
Super happy with these bunting… and how different they both are in style.
I made this card for a friend a few days ago using two of my favourite SU stamp sets… handcarved background and Happy Celebrations.
I used my stamp platform to get the variation in the colours on the background and then over stamped with black for the sentiment.
I added the smaller part of the sentiment by embossing in white on black cardstock.
I then thought it needed a little something else so punched some hearts from cardstock coloured with the same inks and added black pen doodles and then black splats using the stamp in Timeless Textures.
A fun and easy modern card.
P.S. it is also the hubbys birthday todtoday but his card is a design team project so I can’t share it yet. That will have to wait until later in the month
It’s another of the princess’ friends birthdays… how they are all becoming teenagers already is frightening… Anyway here is the card I made for Kizziya.
I used distress oxides to create the background and added a stencilled pattern using Versamark and some clear embossing. I also added some foil whilst the embossing was hot and this added a bit of a silver shine to the texture.
Next I created the star in the same way using a star stencil and then added some white pen to add edges to the star and the panel.
I then added the shrink plastic embellishment sentiments for the front using both the Happy Celebrations and alpha stamps for including Kizziya’s name.
I finished off with some glitter gems… cute!
Hoping Kizziya had a fab birthday and liked the card I made for her.
