Do Something Creative Every Day!

Happy Friday Friends!


Father's Day is here, and I am still in love playing with the Crafting Forever set (143955). What a beautiful gender set for guys/gals.

I am also using the Jar of Love set (141587). When I saw the pens, I immediately thought of inks in a jar.

I stamped the smallest jar onto Watercolor Paper (122959) and fussy cut the jar, and then use the Dapper Denim ink pad (141394) to color the jar. I then stamped the sentiment "Do Something Creative Every Day." in Dapper Denim ink.

The pen is stamped on Whisper White cs (100730) remnants, and color the Lemon Lime Twist, and also fussy cut the pen and aligning the nib to the end of the scrolly sentiment.

Crafting Forever!

Happy Friday Friends!

Bam! The creation begins. When this set "Crafting Forever" stamp set, on page 181, 



came out ... this was the first on my list. I love all the stamp pieces in this set!

I started stamping my paint brushes in a pot set with archival black ink on watercolor paper as I really want to show off the 2017-19 inColors. Below is a quick reference of the inColor Collection.




Each color is painted on with my aqua painter brush (103954) on each brush creating the color scheme in a rainbow arrays. The pot is watercolored on with Cajun Craze ink (126965) making the left side darker showing the shade. 
I cut the watercolor paper to 2" x 5-1/2" and it is adhere to a piece of basic black remnant strip. Then this piece is adhere to the base card.

I stamped the Crafting Forever sentiment in archival black and that is all to it.

Sail Away!

Hello Friends!

I have been trying to get back into momentum since my Cuba trip, and have been waiting patiently for my new orders to come in.

I have been playing around with the High Tide (143006 - $32.00 CDN) set in the meantime and wanted to see what I can do with piece. This set is a 16 piece photopolymer stamp set and is a two-step stampin'.

If you are new to stamping, two-steps stampin' means:

Two-Step Stampin'
1] Stamp the base image.
2] Position and stamp the overlay or adjoining image.


Creating a solid image. To achieve the effect, a QUICK TIP is to use lighter ink for the base image and darker ink for the overlying image.


While creating, I picture this image as a background with a sail sailing through the water.

1. I cut a color theory paper stack (144193) to 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".



2. The upper left corner I sponged the sun and rays with Crushed Curry ink (131173) and on the right I stamped lighthouse the base stamp in Pool Party ink (126982) and the overlay stamp in Real Red ink (126949).

3. Then I stamped the seagulls in Archival Black ink (140931) and trimmed this piece down by 1/16" to have it fit behind the Whisper White cs Thick (140272). The front of the cardstock has a window opening.

4. Still keeping with the color theory paper stack I used the blue paper and the Dapper Denim ink (141394) to create the waves. There are two sets of wave here. 1 main piece for the base card, and additional one for the slider portion.


5. My vision was to create a sailboat through the waves, so I used the Swirly Bird stamp set (141749), the sailboat stamp, and started stamping away and fussy cut the boat out.


6. You are probably wondered how I got the large sail. I actually free-hand cut the right side of the sail by hand and keeping in line with the width and the height (3/4" w x 2-3/8" h) and making sure that I captured the two-tone crushed curry with the white stripe and piecing them together.


7. The slider part was cut with an xacto knife to create a slot so that the sail can slide freely from one side to another.
