School Girl Crystal

 For my inspiration this month, I would like to highlight Bizzy Bec's Miss Cherry Martini Collection of digital stamps.  They have been in the shop for quite a while now, but they are great digital stamps to use on teenage girl cards.  I love all of the images, however, today I am working with "School Girl Crystal" for a card for  my eldest grand-daughter' as she enters her second year of high school.

"School Girl Crystal" digital stamp

Now I am off to buy the rest of the Miss Cherry Martini collection, didn't realise Crystal was the only one in my stash.  Don't forget to join in our January Blog Challenge "Anything Goes".  You still have time!

Double Embossing with Altenew 3D Flowery Field.....

Hi everyone Karen here.

Today it is my turn to share on the blog.  I have seen a few cards lately when looking at google for fresh ideas on double embossing using two embossing folders.  It looked a lot of fun so thought I would have a go.  

For my first emboss I used an old Sizzix embossing folder from my stash and then followed over the top with my 3D Folder from Altenew.  When it was first done I was not too sure if I liked it or not, but after adding some Palette  Pastels over the top it just seemed to pop.



Supplies used:

Altenew 3D Embossing Folder - Flowery Field

(although not currently listed most of the 3d folders can used for this technique and the above folder if available can be ordered through Bec at the store)

Taylored Expressions Die and Stamp - Simple Strips Birthday

Lawn Fawn Die - Stitched Rectangle Frames 

(not currently listed due to postal issues)

Palette Pastels - info available on my blog 

sequins from stash 


Thanks for looking.

Our new challenge is up and running so hope you can join us.

Until next time - Happy Crafting

shadowed and coloured with Nuvo Powders adding extra 
with Metallic Coral to the centre.
Sentiment is again from my favourite
Added some gold thread behind it.
Attached to cream linen card base.

That's it for my inspiration posts for this year.
I hope you will come and play in our

for our December Challenge.
Love to see you there.
Winner will receive a Mystery Stamp
from the Store.

Tim Holtz Stamps - Bird Crazy

 Recently I did a mixed media challenge at a virtual retreat.  The prompts given were journal page, paint, book print pages torn up, stencil or black marker with triangles and of course a vocal point.  I decided to use a Bird Crazy stamp for my vocal point.


                                 

I had so much fun doing this, I did another page using Tim Holtz Stamps - Bird Crazy  This time I used yellow and red paint, bubble wrap, a stamp from my stash I haven't used for ages (cracks), Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers, a cat stencil and a black Posca.


Products used from Bizzy Bec's

Poinsettia Christmas....

Hi everyone.


Karen here, it is my turn today to share with you my latest creation.


I have had this Pointsettia 3D die in my stash for some time and I have finally got an opportunity to use it.  Although this is not currently listed in the store, I am sure if it is still available Bec would be able to order for you.  I have taken inspiration with the foil for my card from Google, but have used Silver instead of Gold to highlight the Pointsettia.. 

Before embossing I inked the inside of one side on the embossing folder with Distress Oxide in Crackling Campfire and Speckled Egg, spritzed it with water, then run my cardstock through my BigShot.  When dry I stamped around the edge of the cardstock using an older Stampers Anonymous Stamp called Fragments  (from my stash)  and Archival Stamp Pad in Hickory Smoke and also inked around the outside edge.  I then  painted the Pointsettia with Tim Holtz  Distress Resist Spray and ran it though my Mink Machine to set the Silver Foil.

Before mounting to my card base I run some Finnabair Alchemy Wax in Brushed Iron  around the black cardstock to co-ordinate with the foil.

Although it does show up very well, I have also stamped and embossed in silver at the bottom of the card. 



Supplies used:

Tim Holtz 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder - Pointsettia 

(not in stock but can be ordered if available)

Tim Holtz Distress Oxide - Crackling Campfire & Speckled Egg

Finnabair Alchemy Waxes - Brushed Iron

 

Thanks for looking - until next time


Happy Crafting
