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:

  • 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.

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

I have a coworker that lost her father and our department is getting a fruit basket.  This card is going to be wrapped up with the fruit and I think it will brighten their day.

Hooray it’s your birthday

Hello folks, I recently went to a Stampn Up cardmaking party and this is one of the cards we made.  It went to a very special cousin on her 50th birthday.  We celebrated at the Keg and went back to party at her house.  It was a lot of fun.

Have a nice weekend.

Love What You Do

Hello folks!  Yipee, it’s the weekend.  This card was made at a Stampin Up! class, and the sentiment is fitting for me today because I am going wedding dress shopping for myself with three of my best friends.  We are road tripping 100 km away and I’m so excited.  I have no idea what style of dress I will buy.  After looking on the website of the store I want to go to, I’m more confused, but I’m sure my friends will point me in the right direction.  Oddly enough, the dress I really want is on sale on-line and is the same colour as the light beige in the background of my card.  What’s stopping me from buying it you ask?  Well, I don’t buy much on-line and certainly not clothes because they might not fit and I don’t want the hassle of returning it.  If I buy on-line, it’s stamp related–LOL.

08-18-18 isn’t far away, so I better act fast.  Wedding reception invitations have been sent out and thank you cards are made.  Meal is figured out and will be made by friends and myself.  Vera, the hostess of my wedding reception is a fabulous cook and has everything under control.  I’m a wreck and a worrier and she’s as cool as a cucumber as hosting parties for 40 people is nothing to her as she does it several times a year.

So, wish me luck today–I’ll need it.
