Moth in Pink & Plum

The moth is a never been used 3D die. Once cut and embossed in white layering weight cs I smeared the plum ink pad across the moth. Then I added the pink with paint brush and water color. I smeared the die/folder with black ink pad and pressed the piece into the wet ink. Attached to the bg piece created by dragging the white copy text vellum through buckskin color ink pad pressed on the glass mat. Scored the edges then attached to fun foam that is attached to white cs base in the mini slimline size. Added the stamped sentiment strip and stamped in black antenna.

Watercolor through a Stencil

The focal image is on the inside of this card with the hand cut window and die cut frame on the front. I added a layering weight cs in white to the front inside panel that is colored with black marker to highlight the dot frame. My image piece is the other half of a previous project of monoprint with stencil and blue oxide spray. I placed the stencil back down and used water colors and a wet brush to color the image. Sentiment strip was printed on sticker paper and attached on the inside of this creation.

First fall

The calendar may say it is mid September but our leaves are not showing any signs of fall so I have been holding onto the summer mode till today. This is for my brothers birthday and he will appreciate the vibrant colors. This started as a piece of red cs that I heat embossed in gold these stamped leaves. Sponged the edges with ink from a brown ink pad. Added the Silhouette cut sentiments and then a few splatters with black and white gel pens. The gold accents are sticker paper with dry embossing from a leaf stencil. All is mounted on white cs base.

As You Like It: Round or Straight Corners It is very rare for me to round any corners. Many ways they don’t look right and only one way to get it perfect.

Use Stencil to Stamp

The dinner party was a success and now we need to send a thank you. To create the blue bg I used my favorite stencil, turned into a stamp, I had sprayed the blue oxide through the stencil onto the flap of an envelope so there was residual on the stencil. By placing the wet side down onto some white copy paper text vellum it stamped this monoprint. After cleaning the stencil and allowing the bg to dry, I placed the stencil back down and added the fall colors with bristled dauber then added some details with markers. The block pp is printed on the copier then a few block colored in the markers. Layered the pp and image on mini slimline white cs. Sentiment is a single stamp that I cut apart. Stamped lower portion in white embossing powder on black and the upper portion in black embossing powder on white. Layered the pieces together then fussy cut the white to create boarder effect and attached.

Note Card Box

We have a dinner party coming up and I wanted to make the hostess a gift. This box is cut on the Silhouette out of layering weight cs. Image is stencil with black shimmer paste on same cs then trimmed and attached. Inside the box are 8 different note cards all from the same stencil using different techniques. I also included sentiment strips on sticker paper, should she want to add any sentiments to her note cards.
