Yayyy, I’m back again with another look inside of the Design Teams work and a new stamp set close up.

Check out what I created for you:

clearly planned i am

I love this sentiment stamp set because its full of encouraging sentiments.  although its a faith base stamp set, it doesn’t leave anyone out.  I used this stamp set to set up an encouragement page for myself when I open my planner.

Here is what the I Am stamp set looks like:

{Clean And Simple} – Warm

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

I love the simplicity of this card.  Waffle Flower BBQ Saying stamp set was perfect for this cue card. I wanted to make people feel warm when then look at the simple watercoloring behind the sentiment.

The watercoloring was created with a Tombow Dual Brush Marker – 847 Crimson.  I swipe the marker on a piece of plastic, sprayed a little bit of water on the plastic and used the plastic to add the color in the corner of the cardstock.

Once the watercolor dried, I used Versafine Onyx Black Ink to stamp the sentiment on top of the watercolor.

To finish the card off, I used We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board to round the corners.

Clean and Simple!!

What do you think?

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

super sweet stamp set

Here’s a look at the Super Sweet stamp set that I used:

I really love this stamp set.  It reminds me of the summer time, which happens to be my favorite season.  I can’t wait for it to arrive.  Here in NYC , the weather was amazing here.  It reminded me of the summer so I decorated my pages to remind me of all of the fun things the summer brings.

Second post for today
If your looking for the CASology post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Florals!

Take a look at my card:

To create these cards, I used Concord & 9th You are Enough stamp set paired with Clearsnap Colorbox Pinwheel Ink.

  1. I stamped the solid part of the flower first using different colors from Clearsnap Colorbox Pinwheel Ink.
  2. Then I used Versafine ink to stamp the flower outline.
  3. After that I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Ink.

Super quite and easy.  I love this stamp set for the sentiments included.  They are so powerful and encouraging.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

{Clean And Simple} – Commencement

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

LOL, don’t you just love this billy goat!!  When I saw this cue card, I immediately thought of the Hipster stamp set.  Then I thought to myself, do I have graduation cap?  The answer was YES!!!! I looked for the Crazy Things stamp set and the Crazy Talk stamp set!

Perfect!!!  My younger brother is graduating from college this Friday, so he will be the recipient of this funny card.  I hope he doesn’t mind my humor.  He isn’t an old goat, he is a very intelligent young man who I am super proud of.

My parents has 6 children and he is number 6!!  So this moment is felt by all of us.

He is off to law school next!!  I solute you brother!! Congratulations!!

I used Copic Markers to color the image in.  Nice and easy!

Super Clean and Simple!!

Mono Prints with a Gel Press Plate

Second Post for Today
If your looking for the Best Blogger Contest 2017 Finalist post, click here.

 

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!!
