I love creating cards with snowmen and I have a huge collection of snow people! This stamp is one of my favorites! I added mini pom poms for the snowballs and of course lots of glitter for the sparkle for #alwaysplayingwithpaper The Challenge#79 Christmas Inspiration Challenge. This card makes me smile no matter what season it is.
I created this mixed media canvas board as I have been dabbling in the world of mixed media. I used a stamp from Impression Obsession to create the bird and then added a separate wing. The music accent paper is from the Tim Holtz speciality tissue paper. I added a paper nest and a few other mixed media accents. I liked it so much I created a few more! This is my submission for the weekly challenge for #simonsaysstamp.
I can’t believe I am already working on a few 2017 calendar projects. I was inspired by a post on Pinterest to create a perpetual calendar using a berry basket for the monthly index card pages. I created monthly divider pages with colorful printed paper and then added a scalloped circle punch for the months. Each index card has a date sticker. I will be teaching a class in October at Scrapbook Cove. love the way the project came out. Instead of strawberries, think calendar box.
I had a few birthday and anniversary cards to work today and this color combination was inspired by the #alwaysplayingwithpaper weekly color challenge #77 to use teal, coral and yellow. I painted some watercolor paper in the three colors. Then I die cut butterflies using a Sizzix die. I used a card sketch I have used before and like the simple layout using layered paper and shapes. I added some glittery accents to the butterflies and a tiny circle sentiment to the bottom. My anniversary card is complete!
I create several different types of calendars for the New Year to give to family members and friends. This year I was inspired by a Pinterest posting of using a paper berry basket to create a perpetual calendar. So the thinking began! First I had to find the right size index cards to cut in half to fit inside the basket. Then how to add a date for each card for each month. That would be a lot of date stamp stamping. My computer savvy husband printed out a tiny date label for each card-365! or 366 days! I found some bright printed paper for the dividers and then attached them to a piece of heavier card stock. I then printed out a tag for each month, punched them out and added a scallop circle to each divider. I supported the bottom of the basket with several heavy pieces of matt board and tucked them inside before I added index cards and dividers. I sponged on some distress ink in a light green to the white basket and added a white ribbon. I will be teaching this class as a project at Scrapbook Cove in October. Should be a fun class. I love the way it came out. The thinking and planning was the hardest part!
I created a deli paper gelli print background using paint, stencils and multi medium liquid to glue the pieces together. I love the unique background paper, in fact I made a few prints and several background pieces. Then I die cut a Memory Box Co tree and glued several pieces together for a sturdier base. Using Versamark ink I coated the tree with ink and then heat set silver embossing powder, several times. I added a word sentiment and tucked it behind the tree, die cut the background paper and added light gray paper behind it. I love the muted colors with the pop of silver. Submitting this before the deadline for the #vervestamps August challenge.
