a2z Scrapbooking June 2015 Challenge

Second post for the day

If your looking for So Suzy Stamps New Release, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with a2z Scrapbooking today with our June Challenge!!!

Our new challenge is sure to please you this month!!  Our challenge this month is New Beginning!!  Use any Hero Arts product to create anything that fits your fancy.  This will be fun and interesting.  The possibilities are endless.

Check out the card I created for this challenge:

So, I’m taking the new Online Card Class Mask-erade and Shari Carroll taught us how to create a background using liquid masking.  I thought it was such a cute idea that I wanted to try it myself.

Here is how I created this card:

1. I cut my watercolor paper panel down to 3-3/4 x 5-1/2.

2. I stamped the Hero Arts Three Artistic Butterflies with Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

3. I covered each butterfly with Incredible White Mask and let it dry.

4. Then I stamped Tim Holtz Mesh & Linen with Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink right on top of the butterflies.

5. Then I used Hero Arts Bubble Confetti Stencil and Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed and added different ink spots to my card panel.

6. I let my card panel dry and then I used my fingers to remove the dried liquid mask.  In the process of removing the mask, my paper tore.

image1(4)

7. To fix that, I used a little bit of glue to attach the ripped piece back.

8. I attached my card panel to the front of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue cardstock.

9.  I attached the card panel to the card base with tape.

10. I die cut Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Congrats out of black cardstock 3 times.

11. I stacked the die cuts on top of each other and adhered it to the card front.

12. I stamped another sentiment from that same stamp set underneath the die cut.

13. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the die cut for added interest.

I had a lot fun creating this card.  So what do you think?  Let me know below.

Amazing isn’t it!! I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge.

First for me…….

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today playing along with AAA Cards Challenge and the Muse Challenge #79.

I wanted to take this time to say Thank you so much to the ladies over at the Muse Challenge for choosing my card for Honorable Mention.  I really appreciate it. If you missed the card you can find it here.

Now on to this week’s challenges.  I had a lot of fun creating my project for these challenges.

AAAcardGame14

Muse VD

Both of these challenges used Water-coloring, which happens to be my favorite.  I decided to do something a little different then what your use to seeing.

I created a TAG!!!  Yes, a tag and its not on a card.  This was a bit of a challenge because my working area was smaller then a normal card size.  I wasn’t sure if I needed to fill all of the space or should I leave some empty areas.  It took me one hour to decided just on that.  LOL!!!

Take a look at my TAG:

Watercolor Thanks

To create this tag:

I used a piece of watercolor paper and my Koi watercolors to create my background.

I cut my tag using Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo 1 Dies.

I cut my thank sentiment using Simon Says Stamps Thanks Die out of Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock 4 times from some dimension.

I used my Stampin’ Up! Bitty Butterfly Punch and Elegant Butterfly punch to punch out four butterflies, 2 from my scrap watercolor piece and 2 from Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.

I added My Mind’s Eye White Enamel Dots to the center of the butterfly for detail and more contrast.

I punched a hole in the top of my tag using Stampin’ Up! 1/8″ Circle Handheld Punch.

I added 2 pieces of retired Stampin’  Up! ribbon and tied it with Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Bakers Twine.

Thats all!  Very easy and fun to do!! I hope you give it a try.  I will be making more tags from now on.

Huh..Black Butterfly?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #170: Masking with Die Cuts.

How cool is this effect! What you have to do is cut masks out of dies that have matching stamps. You create an easy one-layer card that will be striking.

Have you ever seen a black butterfly?  They are just as pretty as the colorful ones.

black__white_butterfly-1152x864Photo credit

So for those of you who know me, knows that I’m going to draw for my beautiful butterfly stamp and die set.  I have to say this is my favorite set.  It works with everything.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Butterfly

Here are the steps to creating this beautiful one layer card.

1. I cut my butterfly out using my Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful die and some Inkadinkado masking paper.

2. I place the masked butterfly down on my cardstock where I wanted it to be.

3. I sponged Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, and Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Pad with sponge daubers.

4. I removed the masking to reveal the colorless butterfly surrounded by the beautiful background.

5. I stamp the butterfly detail in Versafine Onyx Black Ink using Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful stamp set.

6. Then I stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint stamp set using the Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I decided to use the black ink for my butterfly and sentiment so that they will really pop out of the colorful background.

What do you think?  Let me know by leaving a comment below.

A Rainbow of “Butterflies”

Second post for today

Hello everyone! I’m back again with another post for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes!

For this card, I wanted to display Stampin’ Up! new In Colors and other products in a fun way.

Take a look:

A little something cute

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out a butterfly from each of the new colors.

The sentiment comes from a new stamp set called Something To Say Wood Mount Stamp Set and I stamped it using the Lost Lagoon Ink.

I layered two different pieces of the new Moonlight DSP Stack on top of the Whisper White cardstock.

For the finishing touches, I added rhinestones to he butterflies.

Very easy to make.

So tell me, what do you think.

Can’t Get Enough Of Butterflies..

Hello everyone!  I’m so excited to be back again with another entry for Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #168: Baby Wipe Stamping.

Yesterday, I created an extra butterfly so I’m using that butterfly on my card today!  I paired my butterfly up with my new stamp set from Stampin’ Up! Work of Art and the new in colors.  Beautiful!!

You are a fabulous work of art

After viewing what others have done with their cards, I’m going to try some of my other stamps.  I thought you needed to have a coordinating die for this technique but my fellow card makers show me otherwise.

Do You Have Petal Power?

Hello everyone, I guess your asking yourself what is petal power?  Guess what I was wondering the same thing.  I thought it was a cute title so I decided to go with it.  LOL, LOL!!!

No for real, petal power is when a flowers petal stand out from the rest of the flower.  What do you think?

Well my notebook today, has petal power.  The petals are so vibrant and rich, I just love it.

Papertrey Ink’s  Make It Monday #167 Challenge is DIY Notebooks!  Yes, notebooks.  So cute and irrepressible.  I couldn’t wait to participate.

Take a look at my Mini Notebook with tear out pages:

Mini Notebook

Mini Notebook side

This mini notebook was so easy to make, I just love it.

Here’s how:

1.  I cut all of my card stock and back chip board to 2-3/4 by 4-1/4.

2. I stamped “read this” sentiment from PTI’s Clip Tips on all of my colored card stock inside my notebook.

3. I stamped my flowers, butterflies and hello sentiment on my front cover.

4. I attached a piece of pattern paper to the top of the cover and to the back of the book with glue.  The pattern paper will hold all of my pages together.

5. I added double-side adhesive to the middle of the pattern paper.

6. I made sure all of the pages of my books were attached to the adhesive.

7. Then I used my hand to crease the front and back of the book.  All of the inside pages should be adhered to the double-sided tape.

WALA, your book is made and ready to use! The double-sided tape allows you to tear the pages out of the book and put it back.

Isn’t that amazing!
