What Happens When You Put Paint on an Embossing Folder – CYCI #145

CYCI 145 Color Challenge

Wow, I’m in the middle of Creativation and between all this crazyness I felt experimental 😛 If you want to check out pictures and videos live from CHA, check out my Instagram and Facebook account. I’m posting all the updates there. But now to my experiment. I saw a pin somewhere from someone using paint on an embossing folder and I remembered that I have like three laying around, unused. After grabbing the paints that fit to today’s CYCI challenge, I started spreading the paint onto my craft mat. I used a brayer to get the paint from the craft …

Magical Fairy Cards lets you Believe in Yourself

believe

Hi, I’m back for Kat Scrappiness and I have the cutest fairy stamp to share with you. At least I think it’s a fairy with her elegant posture and the puffy skirt. And I wanted to let her swing from something, so what is better than a sentiment die cut 😛 I started by die cutting the base of the card, the sentiment and a doily as the ground for the fairy. I decided to die cut a second doily and colored them with Distress Inks. It creates the perfect magical background for the little fairy, don’t you think? Then …

Video: So Suzy Special – Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven

Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven

Brrr, winter…Even though I’m living in California I need my warmer temperatures back. The only good thing about winter is snow (some might disagree with me), especially when you didn’t have snow for 3 years now. Good that So Suzy has such cute winter sentiments like this one: “Snowflakes are kisses from heaven.” *squeeee* I just recently made a trip to IKEA (needed some craft furniture 😛 ) and I also brought some napkins home. Because these had snowflakes on them I thought that they would fit really good to the sentiment, so I created a mixed media style card …

Snarkfest is upon us and of course I’m in the middle of the festivities 😛 If you would like to join us just visit our Facebook group Snarky Stampers. Till January 21st we are having a big party with snarky cards, hilarious memes and amazing prizes.

I’m just saying let’s remove all the warning labels and see what happens.” I started by applying …

Lovely, Amazing You – Notecards for Your Valentine

Lovely, Amazing You

Lovely, amazing you was the first sentiment that jumped at me when I looked at the Newton’s Nook “Happy Little Thoughts” stamp set. I love stamp sets like that. You can use them all year around and they fit to so many occasions, it’s not a fancy set or one that follows a specific trend. You can use it on any type of card with numerous techniques. Today I decided to create two little note cards using this stamp set and two more from Lawn Fawn. I started with blending three Distress Inks onto the card base. To get an …

Throw on a Crown – Celebrating Snarkfest

throw on a crown

New yhear, new challenges. Welcome to the Can You Case It challenge #144 using the colors Aqua and Watermelon. Because we are currently celebrating Snarkfest in the Snarky Stampers Facebook group (feel free to join 😉 ), I wanted to create a silly card. The colors are perfect for my new gummy bear stamp set, so I went with three of them and I chose the “Throw on a crown” stamp from So Suzy Stamps. I started by stamping the three bears onto vellum, fuzzy cutting them and coloring them with Copics from the back. That gave them a more …

Snarkfest 2017 – Second Chance Art Journal Page

Snarkfest Art Journal

Man, I haven’t shared an art journal page in forever. Shame on me! Good that we have Snarkfest going on in the Snarky Stamper Facebook group and I was in the mood for some fun. And fun always includes smearing around with paints and a snarky sentiment. This it’s the “Second Chance” sentiment from So Suzy Stamps 😉 I started by painting three different Dylusions paint onto the background, Postbox Red, Squeezed Orange, Pure Sunshine. The easiest and fastest way is by using a baby wipe and to avoid fuzzy paper with this technique, it’s best to Gesso it before …

Sailing Away to a Land Full of Dreams

I haven’t posted a canvas in long while. That’s because it always take some a while to finish one, so I kind of need to kick myself in the butt to start one 😛 Today I wanted to share my “Sailing Away” canvas that I just finished. I remembered to take some pictures, but it doesn’t cover the entire process, so I try to describe the steps as good as I can. I started by spraying some Dylusions inks onto the canvas, followed by smearing Dylusions paints on top. The paints are not opaque, so the pattern of the inks …

Video: A Sparkly Thank You With Nuvo Glimmer Paste

sparkly thank you

Hi and welcome to a new year full of amazing adventures! Let’s start with a new video showing you how I created this sparkly Thank You card using Nuvo Glimmer Paste and some really neat dies. I’m starting to try products in different ways, that’s why I’m using the Glimmer Paste as a paint, versus a modelling paste. I think it turned out really nice 😛 You might have seen that I used gloves for this technique. In general you don’t need to worry about getting the paste off of your hands. I just used gloves to keep the glimmer …
