Floating Feathers

Hi. Hello.

I wanted to share a card with you today.  The inspiration came from two challenges.  Simon Says Stamp Monday Paste challenge and the W plus 9 stretch it challenge.  I think I did try to stretch my creativity a bit here.  I started out with white 110lb cardstock from Michaels.  I used a cloud background printed on vellum from my silhouette machine.  I used winter and ocean from Mama Elephant to dab the colors to the cloud.  I then flipped over the vellum (after i wiped off some of the color on a scratch sheet of paper, do not use a baby wipe!… speaking from experience) and put on a paste of pearl modeling cream from viva and clear rock candy distress stickles.  I don’t own a palette knife, so I dug into my fondant kit from Duff and got some tools there.  It was hard to smooth out the clouds because the vellum was so thin.  That is okay.  Who wants smooth clouds? Chunky is the way to go.  I though I add some more texture, because two wasn’t enough and stuck on the vellum cloud pieces that was cut from the stencil.  I just smushed it into the modeling paste to stick on.  I finally got the fanciful feathers die that I been wanting for a while.  Did you know that it is always sold out?  Freaking popular…. I took the sentiment from fresh cut florals and clear embossed it with morocco ink from Memento luxe and stamped out the feathers with morocco and dandelion.  To finish the card, I added some wink of stella and icicle stickles.

That’s it folks.

This card was inspired with a Hero Arts background stamp I got.  I wanted to combine the multicolors of the rainbow onto my background.  I used a sponge daubers to ink up my background stamp with pigment ink.  I sprayed the stamp water and inked up the paper.  After I took it off, I looked at the stamp and it looked like it has some more life to it.  I remisted it with water and used another piece of paper.  This gave me a more softer look and I decided to go with this panel instead.  The sentiment is from a hero arts and basic grey stamp set.  I added a touch of sparkle with the Pretty pink posh sequins in sparkling clear.

Congrats with hearts

This card was inspired from the Lawnscaping Challenge Dust ’em off.  Using stamp sets that hasn’t been untouch recently.  I bought these heart dies from Lawn Fawn and I never used them o.O  I used some H20 paints onto watercolor and cut them out with my cuttlebug.  I used the sentiment from So much to say.

congrats

Cameo glass frame

I went a little cameo crazy.

Funny story.  My sister bought this frame from Hobby Lobby for $1.59, because some of the jewels were missing.  We were going to throw the whole frame away… but my sister started to use some gold and green acrylic on the kraft cardboard from the base of the frame.  I got an idea to draw a cameo of a person and this is how it turned out!  The jewel of the frame broke off, so I glued the bottom half as like a necklace and put a prima flower in her hair.  It was hard taking a picture of it because of the reflection.  Next time.. no glass!

Cameo

This is a card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  My first cameo piece.  I printed the cameo from my silhouette and use the negative to ink up with my black brilliance ink with clear embossing powder.  I also used the negative from the scallop border that was cut out from my silhouette and used vintage photo to make a frame on the card.  I distress the edges with some old paper distress ink and the finished product.
