Thinking of You Dimensional Card


Had some free time today. Made some Thinking of You cards.

I started by dry embossing the yellow cardstock with a Stampin Up embossing folder.  Then I die cut a butterfly from the center.  Put some designer paper behind the cut out with some dimensionals to pop it up.

Most of the work was done!

I then embellished it with some Really Reasonable green ribbon. If you could see if up close-it has some shimmers in it!! 

The sentiment (Stampin Up) is stamped with black archival ink. Punched with stampin up punches and added with dimensionals to add dimension to the card.

I added some designer paper to the die cut butterfly. Punched the butterflies from a Stampin Up die cut folder and added pearls to the centers.  

I love the feel of this card.  Has a lot of interest in the cut out section show casing the designer paper.

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
