Aloha Guys!

Today I have 4 Christmas tags for you using Gerda Steiner Designs Snowman Friends and Deck the Halls stamp set.  The card stocks I’ve used are from PaperTemptress.  I made my tag out of a Neenah Desert storm card stock.  I added the snow banks using the Mica metallic card stocks and some vellum to create more interest.  I’ve made a snow background for my snowmen.  I’ve colored the snowmen with some Faber-Castell Designs Memory Crafts Art grip aquarelle pencils.  I hope you enjoyed these tags and if you did, please like, comment and subscribe.  I appreciate you stopping by and I’ll see you next time.  Thanks again 🙂

Aloha Guys!

Today I wanted to share some tips on how to use the WRMK Next level embossing folders.  I was making some card sets for gifts and I really like the impressions these folders gave but unlike ordinary embossing folders, I had to use different a different sandwich to run it though.  I’m using these gorgeous Mica metallic card stocks from Papertemtress today.  The combination between these Card stocks and the embossing folder, it came out beautiful.  I just added sentiments from the Paper smooches, Bold buzz work and the cards were finished.  Very simple and elegant card.  I’ve used 2 set of the embossing folder, Geometric and Gemstone.  I hope you found this video helpful and I’ve also attached a tag I’ve made using Brusho and another Paper smooches stamp.  If you’d like to see a tutorial on this, please leave me a comment.  Thanks again 🙂

Aloha Guys!

Today i’m here with Tupelo Designs LLC and I have an Art Journal for Beginners.  I say for beginners because I am also a newbie with mixed media, so hopefully you can pick up some tips along the way.  I’m going to try my best to create 1 Journal/Mixed Media a Month.  Let me know in the comment, if you like that idea.  My inspiration came from a quote I found on Pinterest, which said ‘If kisses are were Snowflakes, I’d send you a Blizzard’.  I absolutely love this quote and inspired me to create this page, filled with snow and snowflakes.  Since I’m still new to mixed media, not everything turned out as perfect as I planned.  There were some trials and errors along the way, and I hope this helps you if you are new to this as well 🙂

I’ve used tons of different products for this journal, and I think that’s the fun behind it.  Using different mediums to create multiple layers.  As a card maker, I kind of had to think outside the box.  Meaning in card making, there’s only so much layers you can add before making the card  look cluttered.  In mixed media, you can add layer over layers to create added interest and that’s what I’m beginning to understand.  I also get to use variety of products, that I normally wouldn’t use for card making and that’s always fun.

For this page, I made the snowman and the snowflakes my focal point, along with the quote of course.  I wanted to create a beautiful Blizzard of snowflakes for the snowman to send.  That’s when I realized, I didn’t have any snowflake stencils.  So I just used one of my snowflake die from my stash and created my own stencil, just using paper.  I used Rangers texture paste to create dimension to some of my snowflakes, leaving enough room for my book page snowflakes.  I’ve used some Gelatos, paints, stamps, inks, sprays, etc…

I cut out my snowman and some additional snowflakes from an old book page.  You can view the step by step video up above.  I tried my best to film as much as I can and I hope this helps you if you are new like myself 🙂

I appreciate you for stopping by and please subscribe, follow and comment.  It’ll help me out a lot!  Thanks again.  All the supplies will be linked below, if you’re interested in any of the products I used today.  Thanks again and see you soon 🙂

How to Achieve Depth using Inexpensive color pencils

Aloha Guys!

 

Today I want to share how to achieve depth using some inexpensive colored pencils.  I’ll be using some Gerda Steiner Deisgns stamps,both rubber and photopolymer.  I accidentally purchased some Reeves color pencils, thinking it was watercolor pencils.  I threw away the packaging so I can’t return it.  Since it can’t be returned, I decided to try them out.  These pencils are not as pigmented as an artist quality pencils,creating more wax blooms than colors.  In this case, you need to layer on multiple colors to achieve depth.  You actually have to work a little harder to get the look of dimension.  You can use a solvent, such as gambol but I like to do the blending with the pencils if I can.  I hope you like this card and try this technique with your pencils.   I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe, follow and leave me a comment.  I always enjoy reading all the comments.  Thanks again.

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m doing some watercoloring, and I’m using this inexpensive watercolor set to color in my images and create my background.  The stamp set I’m using is Wplus9, Going Places.  Super cute stamp set.  you can either tuck in the critter in the hot air ballon or you can have them hanging, like I did on this card.  I wanted to share that you don’t necessarily need to spend a lot of money, in order to watercolor.  You can start out with a set like this and see if you like it.  Then you can decide if you want to spend a little more.  I created a background doing some embossing, which will resist the watercolors.  I’ve embossed some clouds with white embossing powder and added just 2 shades of Blues, just dabbing the watercolor to the paper.  I didn’t want to make the colors even, since were creating the sky portion.  I stamped the hot air balloon and the rabbit on a separate sheet of watercolor card stock and watercolored them as well.  I fussy cut them out so that I can pop them up on to our background.  I made a pretty ample card today.  I hope you like this card and I thank you so much for stopping by.  I still have the GIVEAWAY going on until tomorrow, Thursday at Midnight so go head over to my Youtube.  Subscribe and comment of your chance to win some prizes.   I appreciate you guys so much, thanks again!

Aloha Guys!

Today I’m sharing this journal page I made using one of the Prima stamp set that I had.  I’ve been wanting to use her for a while.  I also used Brusho crystal watercolor powder to color her hair.  I wanted the bloom it creates when, it’s sprayed wit water.  I kind of over did it I think, so at the end, it looks a little blurry to me.  I also wanted to use the vintage bags that Tupelo Designs LLC, packages their order in.  It’s a gorgeous vintage bag, which I thought it was perfect in the background.  I’ve added some Double Scoop Gelatos and blended it with my finger.  I also used some copper and gold sprays I had in my stash.  You can view the video for the complete process of this page.  It didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to, but I think it’s okay.  After all, I’m still learning and I had a lot of fun making this page.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again.  I tried my best to put the supply list below but some supplies are missing…sorry.

CAS Card Using PaperTemptress’s Card stock

Aloha Guys!

Today I have another CAS (Clean and Simple) card for you using PaperTemptress card stocks. I have this image that I colored using the Heavenly White 120#, which I have a tutorial for. I’ll leave the link below if you want to check it out. I mentioned before that this card stock does not bleed though the back, so it’s perfect for those one layered cards, using your alcohol markers.  I kept this card pretty simple, because I wanted to use the Pink Ice Parchment paper.   I didn’t want to cover up too much of the card stock, since it has this unique design and color to it.  I back it with the Hot fudge card stock, I love the pink and the fudge.  I’m also using the Ski blue stripe vellum to emboss my sentiment.  I thought the light blue matched perfectly with this color combination.  I stamped the sentiment out with versa fine onyx, so I can emboss it using my clear embossing powder.  This vellum has a great weight to it, so it didn’t even warp as I was heating up the sentiment.  I added some details with some sequins, black belly roll pen and my Signo white gel pen.  Pretty simple but I really liked how it turned out.  I hope you enjoyed this card and there’s still a GIVEAWAY going on right now, so scroll down to check that out.  I may be choosing 1 additional winner, since Patricia from PaperTemptress was generous enough to donate 2 paper packs.  Yay!!  More the prize the better, right?  So don’t forget to subscribe to me Youtube channel and leave me a comment to be entered in the drawing 🙂  Check out the PaperTemptress’s Blog to see all the Design team’s inspirations.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll catch you next time 🙂
