Staying Put

It was brought to my attention that I mentioned travelling to my daughter’s for a week in yesterday’s post.  That was written, and posted to go live, four to five weeks ago.  I never thought to check what I wrote in older posts.  Please note, I’m staying home as we are not allowed to travel.  It’s a disappointment, but will get through this.

Stay safe!

Steampunk or is it Altered Art?

How about some masculine cards today?  I love a little steampunk and altered art in my life.  My introduction to stamping was back in 1999, when I moved from Canada’s east coast, to central Canada.  I started making altered books where I found a love for the distressed and antique look.  Heavens, I’m all over the map with design, aren’t I!?

My cards started out as gold cardstock, from Stampn’ Up! and the rest  of the items were things I had lying around my studio.

I started by embossing the gold cardstock in my Big Shot (alas, my Cuttlebug has given out), and cutting and embossing miniature tags.  Then distressed the tags with SU Soft Suede and Early Espresso.

Next, I added bronze metallic gilding polish and black Stazon over the gold cardstock.  Over the drywall tape, I smudged on some waxy paste in green.  There isn’t a name on the packaging which was purchased back in 2000.  (how do I know when it was purchased?  It was one of my first major purchased for my new hobby)

As a child I collected stamps, and as I grew up I no longer wanted to stay with that hobby, so I took my book apart and kept the stamps, because I knew one day I would have a use for them in my art.  Cogs were found in the jewellery making section at Hobby Lobby.  They are perfect for gluing to flat surfaces.

Inspired!?  Get creative!

Get Well Soon

Hello fellow stampers!  Enjoying this summer heat?  I sure am!

My mojo has found it’s way back to me, after a long hiatus, and I got six cards made over the weekend.

Today, my card used A Colorful Life Stencils paired with Summer Bouquet and Get Well Soon.

I started out placing my stencil over 110 lb white cardstock and misting it with Thulian Pink Shimmering Bliss.  The shimmer that shows up is so awesome. Next, I added my flowers and sentiment.

These stamps, stencils, and any other product you choose to purchase (excluding clearance rack) are subject to 10% off simply by using my code TJ10Beth.

It won’t be long now before our August 1st release is upon us.  I’m so excited!

Cheers!

Be a Pineapple

Stand tall and wear a crown.  Be yourself.  This inspirational stamp is called Be a Pineapple and can be purchased at 10% off, along with the rest of your shopping cart (excludes clearance items) if you used the code TJ10Beth.

These are the steps to make this card:

 

  • Take a large pieces of cardstock and cut a triangle in the centre.
  • Cut a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of cardstock and holding the cardstock up to the window, or light, centre your card and with painter’s tape or Washi tape, tape to ends to the large cardstock
  • Using the lighter colour (here I used Daffodil Delight) blend the centre, going close to the edges.
  • Using a darker colour (here I used Pumpkin Pie) and holding down the cardstock good and tight, ink up your edges, blending into the centre.  Be sure you leave lots of lighter colour visible.
  • Place the large cardstock into your Misti and stamp until you achieve results that make you happy.
  • Carefully remove all tape and whalaa, you now have this beautiful one-layer card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Let’s Pawty

Hello folks!  Ready for spring?  Today as I type this out, it is still freezing outside, but I have my window open in my studio and am listening to the beautiful song of the birds.  It cries, “spring is around the corner.”  I live in an apartment where it is 25 degrees C so an open window is welcome.

As you can see, I’ve been busy pounding out the cards and made a birthday set using Technique Junkie’s Let’s Pawty stamp set.  On the inside of my card I have, “Let’s Party” stamped out.  Cute for the dog-lover.

You can receive this stamp at 10% off if you use my code.

As a little surprise, Pat is offering a free stamp called, “wildly capable” with any  $30 purchase before taxes and delivery.

Paper colours used:

Blackberry Bliss, Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twise, Early Espresso, Island Indigo
