Hello everyone! Today, I have three new necklaces to share with you. I have been busy designing a bunch of jewelry so be prepared to see a few more jewelry posts lol. I created three necklaces using the same base piece but they all have totally different looks. I hope you like them! :)
Here is the second necklace I designed and I think this one might be my favorite. :) Golden Magenta Rose Assemblage Necklace. On this necklace I used a few colors of Lumiere Paints and a flat white paint. I love how it looks! After the paint was dry I buffed all of the pieces with steel wool to give it more of a shabby look. I used the same Bronze Necklace Base J368-B but I added some Pearl Turquoise Lumiere Paint. Then I added some Gun Metal Roses 7005-GM, Bronze Filigree Embellishment (Item #150-B) leaves. I used Pearl Magenta, Halo Pink Gold, and Pearl Emerald Lumiere Paints on the roses and leaves. Once the paint was dry I buffed them with steel wool.
Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a fun little card with a few layers of embellishments to share with you.
This card is very quick and easy to make. For the background I used CL-02157 Script Background Cling Stamp from JustRite Papercraft. I inked up the stamp with Memento Espresso Truffle and then I blotted off some of the ink ink random spots so it would be more faded and give the background and aged look. Then I inked the edges of the card base.
I don't have a full tutorial for the canvas but I did snap a couple of pictures of the background from when I started working on it. I actually used a piece of Strathmore Mixed Media paper and then the finished piece was adhered to a hard canvas board. I misted the paper with water and then I sprinkled on some of the Pthalo Green and Ultramarine BlueKen Oliver Crafts-Color Burst . I let the colors and the water kind of do their magic on their own. I misted a little more water and then just moved the paper around a little. Then I used a heat tool to dry the paper and set the colors. Next I misted more water on to the craft mat where there was still color burst and then I gently tapped the paper into the mix picking up more color. I did this a few times until I was happy with the look and then I heat set and dried the paper again. Doing this will add layers and depth to your paper.
Next I did a combination of lightly misting the paper and also spraying some water in to my hands and letting it drop on the paper. I let the water sit on the paper for a minute or so and then I put a paper towel on top of the paper and blotted to remove the water. Doing this also removes some of the watercolor wherever the water was. It creates a fun textured look.
Once I had all of the color added to the background then I sprayed a couple layers of Krylon Clear Satin Sealer on to the paper. Doing this will seal the colors so you can add layers of other paints, mediums or whatever you would like on top of the background without messing up the background. Next I used Stazon Jet Black ink and randomly stamped the CL-02157 Script Background Cling Stamp. When the ink was dry I dry brushed over most of the paper with white gesso. The gesso does help to tone the colors down just a bit and it covers up some of the script stamping in the background. Once the gesso was dry then I applied some Golden Glass Bead Gel. I mixed some of the Ultramarine BlueColor Burst in with the gel. You can see the beaded gel at the top of this picture (you can click to enlarge the picture for more detail).
The gel does take a little time to dry so while I was waiting on that I stamped and fussy cut the little bird, wing, and flowers, For the banner I used a EK Success punch. Once the gel was dry then I started stamping on to the paper. I stamped all of the images using StazOn Jet Black ink. Then I wanted to add some shading so I went over the bird and flowers with a Spectrum Aqua Marker Black working in just small areas and then I rubbed and blended out the color with my finger. Once the shading was done then I added all of the paper piecing.
All of the pattern paper is from the Simple Stories I AM 6 x 6 Paper Pad Collection. I added 3D Foam Squares to all of the pattern paper pieces except for the body of the bird.
To finish off the piece I added a few pearls.
The Sing Out Loud Clear Stamps is perfect for mixed media, art journaling and card making. I had a lot of fun playing with the new set and creating the canvas.

Hello blogging friends! It's day two of the JustRite Papercraft May New Release. I have to say I am loving this stamp set!! I love the dainty little vines and flowers along with the sweet sentiments.
Gold foil and gold embossing is so on trend right now and I think it just adds a touch of elegance to any project. For the background on my card I used a gold foil cardstock and then layered it with a beautiful die cut. I wanted to keep this card simple but still have the wow factor and I love the white and gold combination. I used S6-025 6 x 6 Matting Basics A and S6-019 Lovin' Diamonds die templates from Spellbinders to create both of the die cuts. On the smaller square die cut I stamped the heart shaped wreath image along with one of the sentiments from CR-02184 Choose Joy Clear Stamps using VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
Here is a close up of the stamped image. I added a few white pearls around the wreath and in the diamonds at the top and bottom of the card. For the bow I used baby pink seam binding. I finished the card off by adding a few roses from Wild Orchid Craft Flowers.

Hello everyone! Today, is the first day of the May New Release from JustRite Papercraft. The Design Team has been busy creating some beautiful projects to share with you!
Here is the card that I designed using the new CR-02181 Multi-Step Lilac Bouquet Clear Stamps from JustRite Papercraft. If you love multi-step stamping then you are going to love this beautiful lilac stamp set! Lilacs are one of my favorite flowers so I know this is going to be a stamp set that I will use over and over again.
I haven't made a shaker card in years but they are back on trend and hotter than ever so I thought this would be a fun and pretty stamp set to create a shaker card with. I used the S4-489 Labels Forty Seven die template from Spellbinders to create the frame for the shaker. I started with a piece of white fun foam and I covered the front and back with Ken Oliver Crafts Stick It Adhesive Sheets and then I used the label dies to die cut the frame shape out of the fun foam. I also applied the adhesive sheets to the purple cardstock and die cut a frame using the same dies. Lastly I die cut the label shape from a piece of acetate for the window of the shaker.
Once all the die cuts were made for the shaker part of the card all I had to do was assemble the pieces. I placed the acetate on top of the fun foam and then the purple frame on top of the acetate. Then I turned the piece over and filled it with some Cartwright's Sequins and Martha Stewart Micro Beads-Blue Topaz, Kunzite (pink). To finish it off I added the stamped die cut to the back. Making shaker cards with die cuts is easy peasy. :)
To finish off the card I used the two largest die templates in the S5-230 Romantic Rose set and made a couple of die cuts for the background of the card. I also added a few white pearls.
