The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - All Boy Card Set

Hello everyone! Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have three CAS (Clean And Simple) and quick and easy boy cards to share with you.


Here is a look at the three cards I designed using the SW-04540 All Boy Clear Stamps from JustRite Papercraft.  This is a great stamp set for all the little guys in your life--son or grandson or maybe even a neighbor.  The set this filled with sentiments and images you guys--big and little.


Here is the first card in the set.  For this one I used several of the sentiments in the stamp set and then I used three colors of ink--Momento Bahama Blue, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy.  I overlapped each color of ink just a little bit to blend the colors.  


Here is a very quick ans easy way to do cards with several sentiments.  Simply lay the stamps out on top of you paper in the way you would like them to look.  Once you have them all laid out carefully place a large acrylic block on top of the stamps.  Now you are ready to ink up the stamps.


Here is a look at the second card in the set.  I used all of the same inks and papers for the cards.  For quick and easy layering I used Spellbinders SCD-012 Celebrations Die - Pierced Rectangles die templates.  I love the pierced edge around these dies.


Here is the third and final card in the set.  I used 3D Foan Squares to add a little dimension and then for a simple embellishment I added a few My Mind's Eye Enamel Dots - Record It! Pretty Things.

I hope you enjoyed the cards today and thank you so much for stopping by!

Please be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of the fantastic paper crafting products and the Blog for inspiration from the Design Team.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

ButterBeeScraps Crystal and Patina Flower Filigree Bracelet

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a beautiful new piece of jewelry to share with you.  This is one of those pieces that I just love and I am sure I will be making a few more.


Here is a bracelet that I designed using some of the pretty filigree pieces and crystals from ButterBeeScraps.  


The  Dimensional Bronze Filigree Flower (Item #7635) and Bronze Filigree Embellishment (Item #316-B) are two separate pieces.  I shaped the Bronze Filigree Embellishment (Item #316-B) to curve and fit nicely around the wrist.  Then I added the flower on top.  I used a Patine finish on both of the pieces.  I think the Patina is such a pretty mix with the bronze metal.


Then I added the SS16 Vitrail AB Flat Back Glass Rhinestone to the center of the flower and the smaller  SS12 Vitrail AB Flat Back Glass Rhinestones around the outer part of the center.  I have to tell you these rhinestones are so gorgeous!!  They change colors when the lights hit them from a green to pink and then kind of a purple color.  So, so pretty!


I used bronze chain and jump rings from my own stash for the bottom side of the bracelet.


Here you can see some of the chain and then I added a Antique Bronze Toggle Clasps (Item #CL071-B) on the side.



I hope you like this newest jewelry piece and maybe you will be inspired to create some jewelry.  If you are interested I am going to be making a few more of these and adding them to my Zibbet store.  I will do an update once they are loaded in to the store.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

Day One Stencil Girl and Ken Oliver Crafts Blog Hop


Hello everyone!  Today, is the first day of the Stencil Girl and Ken Oliver Crafts Blog Hop.  Designers and Style Contributors from both teams have come together to create some fabulous projects using products from both companies.  We hope to inspire you!


For my project I designed a 8 x 10 mixed media canvas board and I have a tutorial to share with you.


First I applied a layer of white gesso to the canvas.  Once that was dry then I used the 6 x 6 Rembrandt's Words Small Stencil and added a layer of the crackle texture paste.


Once the crackle texture paste was dry then I misted the entire canvas with water and sprinkled a little bit of the Ultramarine Blue Color Burst on to the canvas.  Here you can see the Color Burst already starting to activate with the water.


I used a large watercolor brush and kept adding more water to move the Color Burst around the canvas until I achieved a look I liked.  If you get more than you would like in one spot you can use a paper towel to lift up a little of the color.  Set this aside to dry or you can use a heat tool.


Sorry, I know it's a little hard to see exactly what I am doing in this picture from all of the texture paste lol.  Here I am using the 9 x 12 Nosegay Stencil and adding a layer of the crackle texture paste.


After the crackle texture paste was dry then I started to watercolor the flowers using Color Burst.  I used Alizarin Crimson for the flowers.  Here you can see a close up of the Color Burst as soon as I applied it to the crackle texture paste.  I love how it fills in all the little cracks and makes the flowers really pop.  I mixed a few colors of the Color Burst to create a darker green.  I used Pthalo Green, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, and Lemon Yellow.


Next I used the Lamp Black Click It Ink to go over the entire canvas board.  Doing this really adds a lot of depth and dimension to the canvas and it picks up all of the little cracks in the texture paste.


To finish off the canvas I created some die cuts using Stick It and the die template from Tonic Studios.  I removed the backing on the Stick It and applied it to the canvas.  Then I added the gold foil on top of the adhesive and rubbed it to to transfer the foil.  I thought this would add a nice decorative element and gold foil it very hot right now.


Here is a close up of some of the flowers with the gold foil along the edge.


I added a few bits of the gold foil along the edges of the canvas.



I hope you enjoyed the tutorial.  Please be sure to visit the blogs listed below to see what the Designers and Style Contributors have created to share with you.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Romantic Wild Rose Thank You Card

Hello everyone!  Happy First Day of Spring!!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a quick and easy card to share with you using the new JustRite Papercraft CR-02162 Romantic Wild Roses Clear Stamps and Spellbinders GLD-016 Baby Buntings die templates.


With the Romantic Wild Roses Clear Stamps and a few different colors of ink you can quickly create a very pretty card.  I started by die cutting the banner shape using Spellbinders GLD-016 Baby Buntings die.  Then I used Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Bamboo Leaves, and Olive Garden Memento inks to stamp the roses and leaves.  For the sentiment I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the CR-02119 Extra Grand Sentiments Clear Stamps.


Here is a close up of the banner.  I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to the flowers and leaves for a little bit of sparkle.  Then I added some  May Arts Pink Sheer Ribbon and a flower from the Petaloo Botanica Collection Pink Minis to the top of the banner.  I used 3D Foam Squares on the back of the banner to add a little dimension.


To finish off the card I added the banner to two layers of pink mats and then a pink card base.

Please be sure to check out The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store for all of the fantastic paper crafting products and the Blog for inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Athena Owl Necklaces - ButterBeeScraps

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a couple of fun jewelry pieces to share with you.  I know so many people love owls and as soon as I saw the new Owl Filigree Embellishment 644-B from ButterBeeScraps I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them--create some jewelry!  I designed two necklaces using some of the new items in the store.


Here is the first necklace I designed.  I just love these pretty filigree owls!  There is so much detail to them.  I added SS16 Clear Pointy Back Rhinestones for the eyes and then I added three of the White Resin Flowers RES003-WH down the center of the owl. 


Next I created three beaded and wire wrapped dangles for the bottom of the owl.  I used Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze Bead Cap CAP052-B, and Bronze 6mm Rondelle BD006-B/CL from ButterBeeScraps.  I also used  Clear 4mm Bicone Crystals,  Clear 6mm Bicone Crystals, and Bronze 4mm Glass Pearls from my own stash.  


I also made a small bead dangle to hang up at the top of the owl's head.


On one side of the chain I created three wire wrapped bead links and alternated with with the chain.  I used the same beads, rondelles, and bead caps as I did for the beaded dangles.


I love how the beaded dangles give some movement to the necklace.


For the second owl necklace I added a little bit of color with the beads and a Patina finish on the filigree.  


I think the Patina finish is so pretty on the bronze metal.  On this necklace I added SS20 Aquamarine Flat Back Crystals for the eyes.  Then I added small bits of chain across the center and a Rhinestone Charms to the center of each chain.  At the bottom of the owl I added a few more Rhinestone Charms and then a larger wire wrapped and beaded dangle.  To create the dangle I used a Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze 6mm Rondelle BD006-B/CL, and a Bronze Filigree Bead Cap CAP114-B all from ButterBeeScraps.  The Aqua Jesse James Glass Teardrop Bead and Two-Tone Aqua Blue Round Glass Beads are both from my stash.


I added another Rhinestone Charms at the top of the owl's head.  


I created wire wrapped bead links for each side of the necklace.  The  Bronze 6mm Rondelle BD006-B/CLBronze 8mm Rondelle BD008-B/CL are from ButterBeeScraps.   The bronze wire, Aqua Jesse James Large Glass Round Beads, and Two-Tone Aqua Blue Round Glass Beads were from my stash.  I alternated the bead links and then chain on both sides of the necklace.


Here is another close up look at the owl.



Over the past couple of months I have sold a lot of my jewelry piece that I have posted here on my blog.  Most of them are sold before I even have a chance to upload them to my Zibbet store.  I have also been doing some custom jewelry orders.  So I am going to start uploading the jewelry pieces to the store at the same time I post them on my blog.  If you are interested in either of the owl necklaces I uploaded both of them to my Zibbet store.  You can click HERE if you would like to check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hugs & Smiles,
Heidi

Market Basket Thinking of You Card - Pink Ink Stamps

Hello everyone!  I am so excited to share my first project with you using Pink Ink Stamps.  I was so happy when Peggy contacted me to join her design team.  I am looking forward to sharing my projects with all of you.


For my first card I stamped the Market Basket image on to white cardstock using Memento Rich Cocoa ink  and colored with Spectrum Noir™ Markers.  Then I created a die cut and stamped the Thinking of You sentiment at the top.  I inked the edges of the die cut with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  The card base is brown with a layer of kraft cardstock.  Then I added a couple layers of My Mind's Eye pattern paper from the Pretty Things Collection.  I added some 3D Foam Squares to add some dimension to the label die cut.  To finish off the card I added a twine bow and some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a quick and easy card to share with you using the new Ken Oliver Watercolor Memories 6 x 6 and Ken Oliver Watercolor Memories Ephemera Sheet


The paper from this collection is a floral watercolor print.  It is so beautiful and very easy to work with.  The Ephemera Sheet is filled with beautiful floral images as well.  With a little bit of fussy cutting and die cutting you can create cards in minutes.


Here is a close up of the calla lily image.  I used  Spellbinders S5-019 Labels Eight to make a couple of layers of die cuts.  Then I added some Blue Iris Seam Binding and 5 mm Black Sequins to embellish the card.  I used the JustRite Papercraft CL-02138 Sweet Posies Cling Stamps to stamp the hello sentiment.  I used  VersaFine Ink Pad - Onyx Black and Ranger Super Fine Embossing Powder - Clear with a heat tool to emboss the sentiment.  I also used 3D Foam Squares in between the layers of die cuts.


The background paper is from the Watercolor Memories 6 x 6 collection and even though some of it is covered it is that matching calla lily paper.

Happy Birthday Card -JustRite March New Release

Hello everyone!  Today, I have a card to share with you using some of the New Releases from JustRite® Papercraft March release.


I used CL-02168 A2 Woodgrain Upcycled Frame Cling Background Stamp and CR-02166 Stacking Sentiments Clear Stamps from the new release.  Now these stamps can be used for several occasions but they are great for creating masculine cards.  I stamped the CL-02168 A2 Woodgrain Upcycled Frame Cling Background Stamp using Rich Cocoa ink and colored the frame with Spectrum Noir™ Markers.  Then I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges of the frame for some shading and the add some depth to the image.  Next I used 484e MIXED RECTANGLE LAYERING DIE SET from Tonic Studios (US) to cut/emboss some rectangles.  *NOTE--Links for the US and UK for Tonic Studios are listed below.  I stamped the sentiment using Rich Cocoa ink and then I used Teal Zeal, Bamboo Leaves ink to stamp some stars from the CR-02144 Bokeh Time Clear Stamps.


Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I tied some twine in a bow around the sentiment and then I added Glossy Accents to the stars.
