Concord and 9th Geode


I like to play with rocks. My grandkids like to play with rocks. I have actually found geodes in my childhood home's yard! They were quartz, and about the size of a softball. So, when I discovered the Geode stamps and dies from Concord and 9th, I knew I had to have them.


Here is the video of how I made this card. Check it out for all the fine details!

I used Gold Tinsel embossing powder to heat emboss this image on watercolor paper, then spritzed color onto the image. Spritzed again with Pearlized water.

Then I used and embossing pen to clear glitter emboss the very center of this.

There are coordinating dies for this set, so I cut it out.



To create the dark shell,  Soft Suede ink was sponged on the edges. The panel behind the geode is embossed with Bright Days embossing folder from Fun Stampers Journey.

The part of the sentiment is stamped in Fresh Fig and clear heat embossed,  and the center part is Gold Tinsel heat embossed, all on vellum.


There is a heart geode image in this set, and I thought it would be perfect for the inside. It was Gold Tinsel heat embossed on vellum, then die cut.

This last sentiment was also Gold Tinsel heat embossed on some sponged and spritzed white cardstock before diecutting and adhereing this all inside the card.

I really enjoyed making this card, and I hope you enjoyed the process!

Stamp Review Crew: Incredibly Like You

https://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2018/11/first-frost.html

Hello friends! It has been a while since I have been able to participate in a Stamp Review Crew hop, and I am excited to share with you all again. We are using the Incredible Like You stamp set this time, and it has a nice mix of images and sentiments. This was either an All Attendee give away or a Prize Patrol at the November OnStage event, and is not something I would have gotten for myself. After being a demonstrator for over 12 years, I have accumulated many, many flower sets. That being said, this is a lovely set with some awesome sentiments!

If you are following along in order, then you have just arrived from the delightfully talented Lauren Alarid's blog.




My first project is panel of watercolor paper that I sponged then spritzed with Pearlized water to blend and get some drips.



I stamped the two step flowers in combinations of the same colors, then fussy cut them. Added layers of vellum die cut with a die from the Stitched Labels framelits set with a sentiment on sponged ans spritzed cardstock and white heat embossed.



The card was looking a little washed out and needed a pop of something, so I started with added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers. That wasn't enough, so I added some black dots to the centers of the flowers.  That seemed to do the trick.



For this card, I wanted a quick, simple rainbow card.



Perfect for those moments when you need a fast gender neutral card.

That is it for me I hope you enjoyed my projects.

Next up is Nikki Spencer and she is sure to have something incredible!

Hero Arts Jellyfish Party with Video


Hey friends! How about some marine life this time? I created these cards about a month ago and finally had time to get the video edited and a blog post written. Honestly, I intended to get this published next week, but I accidentally uploaded the video to YouTube as a public video right away! Oops. I am still learning lots about doing videos.



Since I made a video with the whole process, I am going to be brief here. Please go check out the video for the nitty gritty details.

This is a single watercolor panel cut in half with a Papertrey Ink On The Round wavy edge die and adhered over a White Satin Pearl embossed panel.

This one uses the Lil' Inker Stitched Diagonal die to  create a recessed area to put the embossed sentiment.


The inside is stamped with a jellyfish from the March 2019 My Monthly Hero and the Concord & 9th Grateful for Everything stamp set.


This uses the die cut left over from the previous card over a Subtle embossed white panel. The sentiment is from the Thankful Leaves Turnabout from Concord & 9th in white embossing.


Inside is a sentiment from the Thankful Leaves Turnabout stamped in a gradient with Pool Party and one of the reactive blue inks from the March 2019 My Monthly Hero kit.


I made some "bubbles" of jellyfish on this card, and added some stamped and die cut jellyfish from the March 2019 My Monthly Hero kit. The sentiment is from the MMH kit also.


Extra die cuts and another jellyfish stamped directly inside the card. 


More bubbles, but over a white panel embossed with White Satin Pearl. And a different sentiment from the March 2019 MMH kit.


This background was a watercolor/smoosh technique with reactive blue inks from the MMH. And White Satin Pearl Jellyfish Party embossed over the top.


And the last card, I used a full panel. I just couldn't cut this one up!


I even used the scrap on the inside!

Kindred Stamps and Thermoweb


Hello friends! I am playing with the You're a Scream stamp set from Kindred Stamps, and some products from Thermo-Web to make this all star slider card. I am excited to play with the Glimmer Gel and the Metallix Gel. They are both so light and creamy, and so shiny!


 I used the Turquoise Sea Glitz Glimmer Gel with the Metallix White Pearl with the Star stencil from Kindred Stamps to create this star background.



 The Star stencil with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink here on the slider panel. And Candied Apple Distress Ink for the red pieces.



This big fella is colored with Copic markers. The sentiment over his feet was an oops. I stamped it on the panel before adhering him on, and he was too tall! So I took some vellum and Black heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it right over his feet and the previously stamped sentiment. 

I used these colors:
R20, R22, R24
R39, RV69
W0, W1, W2
 

I also created a video of this card creation using the Lawn Fawn Double Slider dies.



I made a video with my own template for a double slider card. Check it out!

I did record the making of this monster slider card, but my daughter and her family surprised me with a visit this week and I have not had time to edit it. Hopefully soon!

Kindred Stamps Release: Peace and Love

Hello Kindred friends! It is time for the April Release from Kindred Stamps, and I get to be groovy with you all! I know I say this every time, but I really did have so much fun playing with the Peace and Love set. I love it!


My first project was this cup shaped card using the Honey Bee coffee cup card die, which just happened to arrive the same week at this stamp set.

I did a bunch of sponging, spritzing with Pearlized water, and spattering with clear water.

Then I heat embossed the peace sign in White Satin Pearl and White embossing powder. I think they look like bubbles.



The belly band slides off, and has most of the embellishments on it. The flowers are sponged and diecut with Spellbinders Layered Colorful Blooms dies and Nuvo Drops in Galaxy Violet.

The hippie girl is colored with Copics, and I wrote them all down. But that list is at home, and I am in Florida. Just got off a cruise ship... I will have to add that info when I get home. On Tuesday! 😏 Prepared, aren't I?!

Edited to add:
Hair: Y21, YR24, E99
Skin: E11, E00, R20
Dress and Flower: V000, V01, V04
Mouth: V000, R20
Boots: YR24, E99


Even the inside got some sponge and spritz love! The sentiment is from this stamp set also.

The top portion of the card has a diecut panel with insert tabs for a gift card.


Next I had to play with this awesome VW van. I love all the graffiti on it! The Swirl stencil was the perfect background accent here because the bus is pretty big and makes for a quick cardfront.


I started the background by sponging the 2 colors over the entire panel, then applied the stencils and sponged the same colors over the top. Of course, there was spritzing involved.  😁

Van:
  • BG11, BG13, BG15
  • RV04
  • YR16
  • Y04, Y06
  • N00, N1, N3, N4, N5, N7


Ok, I am really, really happy with the way all of these projects, but this is my favorite. At least for how the techniques and how quickly the idea gelled and came to life.

I did a double stencil technique. First with the Swirl stencil, then with the Comic Dot stencil, without removing the Swirl stencil. LOVE!!


I colored the lava lamp with Copics, list to come later. I also used the Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze Clear and Stardust pens.

Edited to Add:

Aqua: BG11, BG13
Purple: V000, V01, V04

I used mostly the same colors for everything, to keep things simple. And because I actually really love this color combo! It is a new one for me. OK, that is the last of my projects for this post. Enjoy the rest of the release!

The entire Kindred Stamps April release will be available Friday, April 26th at 8am PST/11am EST. Be sure to subscribe to the Kindred Stamps blog to see a daily line up of sneak peeks from our amazing Design Team and see the full product release on Friday!

Kindred Stamps: You're a Scream


I have a quickie for you this time, as I am about to leave on a much needed vacation. This little one-eyed fella is from You're a Scream, and I think he is adorable!


I had created this background a couple of months ago, and it seemed perfect for this sentiment and character.

I used an Action Wobbler to boost the Wow factor!



I colored Mr. One Eye with YG11, YG13, YG17, W00, W1, W3, and W5.

I used Distress Inks to do the background, and I think the colors were Squeezed Lemonade, Mowed Lawn, and Crushed Olive.

He would be awesome in a rainbow of colors, and peeking from little windows. Of course, the ideas are flowing now when I don't have time to act on them. Go figure.

Until next time!

Kindred Stamps: Mythical Kraken


Who doesn't love a cheesy joke?! Mythical Kraken is full of punny fun! This set is in Last Chance mode folks. You want to be sure to get yours while they last! It was one of the first sets I got, and I have to confess that I had not played with it before now. Shame upon I! It is so stinkin' cute!!


I had a great time coloring him. Since he is a mythical beast, you can really play with the colors. Here is I used:
  • W2, W3, W5, B04
That's it!

The background was a turquoise dye ink, blended into a piece of watercolor paper, then spritzed with Pearlized water and allowed to drip down the panel and dried with a heat tool. Then spattered with water.

The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, then clear heat embossed.

And a bunch of fish were stamped in the same turquoise ink, then a Clear Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen over top to a little shine and dimension.


And the punch line on the inside! I had to scatter fish and ships all around it.

The fish are stamped with the same turquoise ink, then a blender pen is used to color them in. I went over them with the same Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pen in clear.



For a little set, this one really is loaded with goodness! I love the "I am a sucker for you" pun with the tentacles!!

When I started this tag, I was going to color each individual tentacle. But changed my mind when I was sponging the cardstock for the heart. This still looks awesome, but took a fraction of the time. Plus, there is no bleed through like there would have been with Copics.



The sentiment is Brass heat embossed on the sponged and spritzed cardstock. It is easier to see in real life, but not much. Maybe white would have been better. What do you think?

So, are we ready to make this set fly off the shelves? I know I am glad it is in my stash!
