Hello everyone!!  I’m here today sharing my mono prints that I created with a gel press plate!!

I was introduce to Gel Press Plates at Creativation!! I watched Marybeth Shaw, the founder of StencilGirl Products, demonstrate how to use them!! She made me laugh with this quote, “It’s Not Done Yet”, she was referring to her plate that still had paint on it, even after she created a bunch of backgrounds.  I was tickled.  So when I arrived home I had to pick one up.

Now I have 4 different plates and still want more!!  LOL!!

Take a look at what I created today:

I played with February 2017 Mandalas, Circle and Spheres Collection by Maria McGuire stencil along with Vicki Boutin Arylic Paints Set 2.

I love the results that you get when you use the gel press plate and stencils.  You will never get the same print twice.  That is the beauty of this technique.

Check out what I created with this print:

 

I totally love this!! This card turned out perfect!!

I’m entering this card into the Muse Challenge #214. Anita Bowden is the Muse this week, check out her card:

I did not see her card until after I created my prints.  So I was inspired by the press plate, the paints and the stencil.  My card just so happen to fall right in line with Anita’s.  Thats creativity at its best to me.

So what do you think?  Please let me know below!!

Hello – Muse Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing with the Muse Challenge!!  I can’t tell you the last time I had a moment to play along with them.  This was one of my favorite challenges to play in before I became super busy with DT work, LOL!!!

The Muse this week is Anita Bowden, here is her card:

Take a look at my card:

Hello (Muse)

I decided to create this card because I looked out of my window about an hour ago and realized that it was snowing.  This is our first snow fall for the winter season.  I’m not happy about it. I’m not a fan of the snow.  So I thought this scene went perfect with my how my outdoors looked like.

This card was easy to create.  I just die cut Your Next Stamp Houses on the Hill Die and adhered it to a piece of Recollection Black Cardstock for contrast as did Anita.  Then I used Tsukineko Radient Neon Amplify! to add my snow.  My sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  It was a single hello stamp that I received as a thank you for ordering.

Super easy and fun.  I made this card in 5 minutes.

Heartfelt Thanks – Muse

Hello everyone!!  I’m popping in really quickly to share my card for the Muse Challenge this week!!

Yes, its been a while since I played and the opportunity presented itself so I jumped on it.

This week’s Muse is Anita Bowden. Take a look at her card:

Now take a look at my card:

Heartfelt Thanks 1

To create this card, I used My Favorite Things Jumbo Dot Cover-Up and created a stencil.  I used Distress Ink Scattered Straw, Spun Sugar, Evergreen Bough, and Shade Lilac to create my circles.

Stencil and Inks

I simple pounced the ink onto the paper.  Once that was done, I removed the stencil and trimmed the card panel down and added to the black panel and then add that to the card base.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Circle Scribbles Die to cut a piece of vellum.  Then I die cut Paper Smooches Heartfelt Thanks sentiment out of black card stock.  I attached both to the card front using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

Super simple and fun to create.

So what do you think?  Does my card fit the Muse?

Take a look at my card:

Our Friendship Grows (MUSE)

I totally love this stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  Its called Our Friendship Grows.

To create this card, all I did was distress the background with Distress Ink Broken China and Mowed Lawn.

Then I stamped and die cut three of the flowers.  I used Copic Marker E33, E35, E37 to the center of the flower.

I attached the flower with foam adhesive and used my ruler and Copic Multiliner to draw in the stem.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the center of the flower.

I stamped the sentiment using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.

I trimmed my card panel down and adhered it to the card base.

Super easy and Fun!!

You will see more of theses flowers this week.  Such a pretty set of flowers.

Take Your Time To Smile

I love the way this gold flower looks.  So classy!!

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut Neenah Desert Storm cardstock to an A2 size card, 4.25 x 5.50.

2. I cut my card panel to 3.25 x 4.75.

3. I used Create A Smile Botanical Love to stamp the big flower in Versamark ink and embossed it with Ranger Enchanted Gold then heat set it.

4. I added Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape and Stacked With Love Washi Tape to the side of my card panel.

5. I attached my card panel with foam adhesive.

6. I added Your Next Stamp Black Gumdrops for added interest.

Lets take another look at that flower:

Take Your To Time To Smile 3

Isn’t it pretty??  I love it.  It sparkles in the light.  I have to use this embossing powder more often.

03 - March - MineNow take a look at my card:

Feel Better

I use some of the products from my Simon Says Stamp February 2015 card kit to create my card.

To create this card it was pretty simple.

I masked off both sides of my card base by 1″.

I cut different size strips of the pattern paper from the kit.

I adhered the pieces and stamped my sentiment.

I added sequins and I was done.

I love how this card turned out.  The colors are fabulous.  I hope I get to use more of this kit.

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

Spring Chicken..

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Muse Challenge #98.  The Muse is Marion Vagg.

Take a look at Marion card:

IMG_3471

When I saw Marion’s card, I knew I want to use my new Simon Says Stamp Birthday Farm Animals and die!!

This is such a nice and simple card that I wanted to follow suit!

Take a look at my card:

Spring Chicken

Isn’t this chicken just the cutest.  I think he looks so cute.

Here are the Copic colors that I used:

Chicken: R35, R37, Y21, E50, Boo, 0

Gift box: R24, R27, R29, R46, BG13, BG15, BG18

I used the matching die to cut the chicken out and I pop him up with foam adhesive.

I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Clean and Simple to its finest!!  The hardest part to creating this card was choosing which Copic colors to use.

So what do you think?  Let me know below.
