{Clean and Simple} CASology 206 – Art

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

This week’s cue card:

Week 206 - Art

Take a look at my card:

Follow Your Art (CAS)

I’m participating in Kathy’s coloring challenge but this time I’m playing with colors not just coloring.  I want to really learn how colors work so I will work with watercolors for much of the time to see how different colors react with one another.

This cue card is perfect for that!  I’m working with Rubber Dance Stamps who happens to be our sponsor this week!!

The stamp set that I’m using is called Artist Plate!  Its perfect for this week’s cue card!

I stamped the set of paintbrushes using Colorbox Archival Wicked Black Ink and the sentiment using Clearsnap Colorbox Bluebells.

I used Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor to add color to paintbrushes.  I used Scarlet Lake, Cadmium Orange, Cadmium Yellow, Sap Green, and French Ultramarine.

Super simple and easy.

I made more then one card.

Follow Your Art

Nice and easy!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

The Ton Spring 2016 Blog Hop

Second Post for today
If your looking for CS Take It Make It Inspiration Post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m super excited today.  I was asked to participate in The Ton’s Spring 2016 Release Blog Hop!!!  Yayyyyyy!!

Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 7.04.16 AM

I was totally siked when Effie reached out to me and asked if I would like to hop along with her team.  I jumped at the opportunity to work with her fabulous team.

Enough about my excitement, lets get started on this hop!! If you arrived here from the talented Eunji blog then you are on the right track.  If you arrived here on your own, you will want to start at the beginning, The Ton blog, as to not miss any of the amazing projects!

I’ve created two cards for this awesome hop.

Card Number One:

Happy Birthday (ton outside)

When I first saw this Bokeh Burs Star stamp set, I fell in love.  Such a pretty stamp set with so many things that you can do with it.

I knew it would look super pretty embossed with some distress inks blended on top.

Here is how this card was created:

  1. Stamp the image using Versamark ink in the center of the Recollection White Heavyweight cardstock.
  2. Apply Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on top of the stamp image and heat set. This will resist the ink that will be added on top.
  3. Lay your card flat on your table and start applying your first distress ink Mustard Seed.  Tap off before you apply your first coating of ink.
  4. Then blend the next color, Spiced Marmalade, to create a pretty blend between the two colors.
  5. Next blend the last color, Festive Berries, to create a contrast between the other colors.  Together all three of them are amazing.
  6. Make sure you cover all of the white embossing powder with the distress ink so that everything pops.
  7. Now you can stamp the sentiment in the center of the star using Versafine Ink for a clear, crisp impression.
  8. To finish the front of the card off, add several Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequin randomly.

I hardly ever stamp the inside of my cards.  I decided that this card would totally rock, with a sentiment on the inside.

Happy Birthday (ton inside)

Use Versafine ink again to stamp the sentiment for a crisp, clear impression.

What do you think?  Isn’t this set fabulous!! I think so!!

Card Number Two:

hello (ton)

Isn’t this just fabulous!!  This stamp set is called Brushed Hello.  I love everything about this card.  From the background to the “HELLO” sentiment. Everything about this card screams BOLD!!!  I love it.

Here is how to create this card:

  1. Tape down the Clarity Stencil to the cardstock so that it lays flush over the paper.
  2. Select two-three colors to blend.  The colors used above Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon.
  3. Use the Clarity Stencil Brushes to blend the colors over the stencil.
  4. Check out the video below on how I achieved that look. Its a 5 minute video from start to finish in real time.

  1. Trim the blended cardstock down to the desired size.
  2. Stamp the Hello sentiment from the Brushed Hello stamp set using Versafine Black Ink. Then stamp another sentiment if you like.
  3. Add rhinestones to finish the card front off.
  4. Adhere the card front to your cardbase using Tombow Stamp Runner Adhesive. 

Finished!!  What do you think?  I love both cards using both of these stamp sets.  Such a great way to bring in Spring!!

CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Inspiration

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for February.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Text Me!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use text or script background stamps, or text paper in your projects. Any language, any style. Old book pages, bits torn from magazines, scrapbooking papers.. whatever you can find! … The ‘text’ part does NOT include sentiments, phrase or single word stamps…. think backgrounds!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Thanks on text (TIMI)

I love how this card turned out!! I used Clarity Stencils-Chinese Lantern and Clarity Stencil Brushes to create the pattern on the texted pattern paper.  These two products are my favorite supplies this year thus far.

This is how I created this card:

I placed the stencil over the pattern paper and used two different brushes to apply the Distress Ink Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn.

stencil and brushes

Here is where the magic happened, I moved the stencil over slightly to the right and applied BoBunny Sugar Glitter Paste, Yummy!!

I let the glitter paste dry and cut the unknown text pattern paper down to 4 by 5.25.

I adhered the pattern paper to the black cardstock with Tombow Extreme Adhesive because I needed the pattern paper to stick securely to the card base because of its weight.

Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks three times and adhered them together and onto the pattern paper using Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.

I placed a heavy book on top of the finish card to assure the die cut sticks to the pattern paper.

Take a closer look:

Thanks on text 3 (TIMI)

Thanks on text 2(TIMI)

 

There you go!  That’s how I created this card.
