Dress it up with Ribbon and Flowers!



Happy Wednesday!

Have been working on my stash of cards. I like to keep some nice ones to grab in a hurry. I can add the sentiment once I know what I need it for. 
When I'm doing this, I also pull out stamps that I don't use on a regular basis.
Anytime I'm making cards, I love to include ribbon and flowers! Really dresses the card up and gives you a WOW factor!
Today's card is no exception!

I've used a Unity Stamp -colored with Stampin UP markers.
The paper pad is Teresa Collins Travel. Using scissors I roughed the edges of the background pages and then inked them up with vintage photo.
I glue all the components down until I get to the ribbon and flowers.  Then I use my hot glue gun.

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!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
