Today is full of Possibilities

Hi there,

today, we are showcasing our favorite vintage image over at the A Day for Daisies Blog:

  • color the cute A Day for Daisies Vintage Fairy Ring Two image with Delta, Touch Twin Brush Markers and a white gel pen
  • add Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to her wings and her dress
  • create a background on a tag cut from Mixed Media cardstock using Distress Paints (Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Iced Spruce, Tumbled Glass)
  • stamp the Lavinia Stamps Spotty Toadstools with VersaMagic (Eggplant) and color them with Twinkling H20s (Twilight, Cafe Latte) and a white gel pen
  • tap the Clear Emboss it Dabber onto the Memory Box Stardust stencil and heat-emboss the resulting stars and dots with WOW! Bluetiful embossing powder
  • add some splatters with Finetec Mica Watercolors (Sterling Silver) before adhering the fairy
  • ink up the edges of the tag with Distress Ink (Dusty Concord) and dye a piece of seam binding with that same ink color before threading it through the hole of the tag and tying it into a bow
  • add the sentiment using Idea-ology Small Talk Stickers

Hi there,

it is time for our April Challenge over at the Skipping Stones Design Blog. This time we are having a Sketch Challenge:

 
  • create a background on a stitched watercolor paper panel using the Skipping Stones Design Funny Coffee #1 stamp set, the Memory Box Drip Rings stencil and Distress Ink (Ground Espresso)
  • spritz the panel with plain water and add droplets of pearlized water
  • adhere a strip of brown foiled cardstock near the bottom of the panel and use foam tape to mount a stitched panel with the sentiment from the same stamp set on top
  • cut out a stitched circle from watercolor paper and stamp the coffee cup from the same stamp set with Versafine (Vintage Sepia) 
  • stamp one of the butterflies from the Skipping Stones Design Dandelion Dreams stamp set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Frozen embossing powder
  • color the cup with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a waterbrush

Stamp Connection #12

Hi there,

connected through our love for card making, blogging and being from Germany we (Cornelia from Stempel Spass and I) decided to create a monthly project within predefined requirements. We are going to show you the result every 3rd Sunday of the month and this is our 12th transatlantic get-together!

Our requirement for this meet-up was:
"create your own background with small stamps"

To see my creation for the Gerda Steiner Designs Blog Hop click here

  • stamp one of the adorable little sheep and the grassy hill from the My Favorite Things Ewe are the Best stamp set onto a stitched panel cut from watercolor paper with Versafine (Smokey Gray) and color the scene with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and a waterbrush
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine (Onyx Black)
  • cover the sheep with Multi Medium Matte and apply Sparkling White Flocking on top
  • add Glossy Accents to the heart
  • cut out another stitched panel and stamp the little flowers from the set with Memento (Gray Flannel) and color them with DIY, Delta and Touch Twin Brush Markers
Now make sure to hop over to see Cornelia's Creation.
