The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Christmas Candle and Matching Card Set

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have an altered candle and matching card set that is perfect for gift giving.


I know we all need quick and inexpensive gifts during the holiday season and these candles with a matching card are easy to make and very inexpensive.  I used some gold foil pattern paper from the Kaisercraft Yuletide 6 1/2'' Paper Pad to make a belly band around the candle and then I added some gorgeous Venise Lace.  I used a lot of the same products on both the candle and card.


I used some of the May Arts Satin Holly Leaves and I brushed Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue on the leaves and sprinkled with Tim Holtz Distress Glitter-Antique Linen.  I also added some glitter to the Glitter Jingle Bells - Gold Assorted.  Now these bells already come with gold glitter on them but I wanted to glitter to match the holly leaves so that is why I added more glitter.


After I added the holly leaves and bells then I added a pretty gold bow made with May Arts Metallic Gold String and the finish it off I added a few Kaisercraft Sparklets-Rouge to look like holly berries.


Here is a look at the matching card.  I used more pattern papers from the Kaisercraft Yuletide 6 1/2'' Paper Pad.  I created two die cuts using S2-120 Spellbinders Die D-Lites - Peace SentimentS4-418 Labels Thirty-Six.  I also used Bazzill Gold Mirror Cardstock on one of the die cuts.


Here is a close up of the card.  I fussy cut the center image with the sentiment from one of the sheets of paper in the same paper pad.  I love using little images like this.

ButterBeeScraps Enjoy the Journey Vintage/Shabby 8 x 10 Altered Canvas

Hello everyone!  Today, I have an altered 8 x 10 canvas to share with you.  


I used several metal filigree pieces from ButterBeeScraps to embellish the canvas.  I started by painting the edges of the canvas with ivory acrylic paint and then I added some Faded Jeans Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain.  The Faded Jeans color was the perfect match for the flowers in the DCWV The Primrose pattern paper.  Next, I added a piece of the pattern paper to the background on the canvas.  I used a tiny dot stencil and a doily stencil with some homemade texture paste to add some interest and dimension to the background paper.  After the texture paste was dry I added some ivory acrylic paint and Antique Linen Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on top of the stencils.  Next, I fussy cut the postcards, ticket and banner pieces.  I distressed the edges on the postcards and ticket and added them to the center of the canvas.


I added Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B) across the top of the canvas and then I added the banner pieces.  To decorate the banner pieces I added lace, Bronze Filigree 409-B, flat back pearls, and Pink Resin Roses.


Here is a close up of the banner.


On each side of the banner I left the chain longer to add some pearl dangles.  I used Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze Filigree Bead Caps (Item #CAP052-B) and pearls to create the dangles.


In the lower left corner I added a doily and then I used one of the  Large Bronze Cameo Frames (Item #F623-B) with a  Large Oval Glass Cabochons (Item #CAB017) to create the sentiment.  The paper is from the same collection and I dry brushed some of the ivory paint on to the frame.  Then I added some WOC Flowers.


I create a couple more small flowers clusters on the other side of the canvas.  Then I added a Bronze Decorative Key and a Bronze Filigree Flower 124-B with a 6 mm flat back pearl on top.


I love how vintage and shabby this canvas turned out!  Don't forget you can click on all of the picture to enlarge them and see all the details.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Picture Perfect Christmas Card with Tutorial

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a sparkling Christmas card and a short tutorial to share with you.


Here is the card that I designed.  I love all of the layers, texture and sparkle with this card.


To start I taped down a piece of green snowflake pattern paper from the Graphic 45 Twas the Night before Christmas 6 x 6 paper pad and then I taped the Prima Bubbles Stencil on top and added Studio 490 Embossing Paste - White.  


Carefully remove the stencil and then I added Stampendous Crystal Glitter - Ultra-Fine Translucent on top of the embossing paste while it was still wet.


Next I used S4-435 Picture Perfect die template to create the die cut.  To add the color I used   Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.


I used an acrylic block to scribble some of the color from the markers and then I picked up the color with the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and used it the same way you would a watercolor brush and added the color to the image.


Here is a close up of the image.  Look at all the shimmer!


Here is a close up of the embossing paste with the glitter.  Even more sparkle lol!

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - A Merry Little Christmas Card

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a quick and easy Christmas card to share with you.  


For my card I used some of the gorgeous Christmas papers from the Kaisercraft 6.5 Paper Pad Yuletide.  I love it when paper pads have images that can be fussy cut and used to make quick and easy cards.  To create the holly leaf background I used JustRite® Papercraft CL-02068 Holly Swirls Background Cling Stamp along with Memento Olive Groove ink.  The base of the card is red cardstock.  After I stamped the background and cut out the mats and the image the card came together so easily.


Here is a close up of the image I fussy cut.  I layered the image on top of a piece of the gold foil paper and added 3D Foam Squares for a little dimension.  Then I added the beautiful May Arts 7/8" Adhesive Fleur de Lis Scroll - Gold ribbon.  The ribbon adheres wonderfully to the paper and adds a touch of elegance.  To finish off the card I added one of the Petaloo Botanica Sugared Berry Clusters - Red.  The berry clusters have a clear chunky glitter on them so they look like they have little ice crystals and it was a perfect match to the beautiful paper.


I also wanted to add a little more shimmer to the card so I went over the holly leaves and berries in the background with the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.  


So how are you coming along with your Christmas cards?  I would love to hear from you and how many cards you make each year.

Caring Thoughts Sentiments Clear Stamps - In My Thoughts Card - Day Two November New Release for JustRite Papercraft

Hello everyone!  It's Day Two of the November New Release for JustRite® Papercraft.  Today we are featuring the  CR-02148 Caring Thoughts Sentiments Clear Stamps.


This is a beautiful stamp set with a couple of floral and butterfly images and wonderful sentiments.


This is the card I designed using the CR-02148 Caring Thoughts Sentiments Clear Stamps.  I stamped the floral images and sentiment using VersaMark ink.  Then I used Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.  


To create my card I used the Idyllics Embossing Folder & Die – Jasmine Dream from Tonic Studio.  This is a beautiful die set with 10 dies and it also includes the embossing folder.


To color the floral image I used Evergreen Bough, Bundled Sage Distress Markers.  I scribbled the colors on to an acrylic block and then I used the Zig Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to pick up the color and and color the images.  Doing this adds so much sparkle and shimmer to the image.  Just be sure to scribble of on a piece of scratch paper in between colors.


Here is a close up so you can see the shimmer.


I think the topper for this card is so gorgeous and I love the details.  I added some May Arts Green Wrinkled Ribbon behind the die cut for some interest and added color.  I used a cotton ball and applied Delicata Golden Glitz ink around the edges of the label die cut and also on the lower portion of the card going over the embossing.  Doing this really makes the embossed area pop.


To finish off the card I added pearl button to the center of the bow. I used Teal Silk Ribbon to create the bow.  Then I added a few more white pearls.

8 x 8 Mixed Media Canvas with Hometown Craft Papers by Ken Oliver

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a Happy Halloween and a wonderful weekend.  Our youngest son (12 yrs old) was really on the fence about going trick-or-treating this year.  He decided he wasn't going to go and then at the last minute (which I figured would happen) he changed his mind LOL.  So he threw a costume together really quick with some part from other costumes we have used in the past.  


Here is a picture collage I shared on FB over the weekend.  I think through the years this chopped off arm has been a favorite with my husband and the boys--they have all used it at one point in time.  My husband made this a few years ago after going to a Halloween party and seeing one the a friend had made.  It is fun but kinda creepy and freaks people out when you move your fingers but it's all in good fun LOL!

This weekend I also had a little bit of fun creative time just for me--I have to remind myself to just play and have fun sometimes just for the sake of doing it.  Love getting my fingers all inky!


If you follow me on Facebook then you saw the little sneak peek of this canvas that I shared yesterday.  This is a 8 x 8 canvas and I had SO much fun creating it!!  


Here is a quick look at the original sheet of paper.


To start I sprayed the sides and edges of the canvas with  Distress Spray Stain-Vintage Photo, Peacock Feathers, and Picket Fence until I achieved a look I liked.  Then I added the main image from the paper.  I cut the lower left portion of the paper to a 7.5 x 7.5 square.  I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain and then I used Plaid® Mod Podge® Matte to adhere that paper to the canvas and I added a layer of Plaid® Mod Podge® Matte on top of the paper.  


Then I used a stencil with some Liquitex® Light Modeling Paste to add some interest and texture to the canvas.  After the modeling paste was dry I went over it with Mod Podge.  Next I went over the textures areas with Folk Art Vintage White Acrylic Paint just rubbing it on with my fingers.  


Next I added some color to the script texture and the bike using  Faber-Castell PITT Big Brush Pens-Light Cobalt Blue Turquoise.  For the bike I colored directly on the image (in small sections) and rubbed with my fingers to blend the ink before it dried.  On the script texture I added some of the color to my finger and then gently rubber over the top of the text.  I wanted to add a little shimmer too so I used some of the Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain and rubbed that on top of the text too.


Here you can see a close up of some of the shimmer.


I fussy cut the image of the clock and added a little color using Tim Holtz Distress Inks-Peacock FeathersWalnut Stain.  Then I laid the clock on top of the canvas and traced around it with a sharpie marker.  I went around the outline for the clock using Faber-Castell PITT Big Brush Pen in Black and blended the color with my fingers before the ink was dry.


I added some dimension to the clock by adding 3D Foam Squares and then since this is a home decor piece I added some hot glue to the foam just to make sure it wouldn't pop off of the canvas.


I love working with the Hometown Craft Papers by Ken Oliver.  They are great for mixed media because inks blend really well and they hold up to the sprays, mod podge and texture paste!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi
