Technique Tuesday July 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing one stamp set from Technique Tuesday July 2018 Release!! Yes, the summer has finally arrived here in NYC. I’m so excited about that. I love the warmer weather and this new release.

Let’s take a look:

Beautiful Dragonflies

Here’s how this card was created:

  1. Cut a piece of watercolor paper and tape it down to a study surface.
  2. Wet the paper with a lot of water.
  3. Decide on the colors you want to use from Prima Watercolor Confections Essence and add them to the wet watercolor paper loosely.
  4. Heat set the watercolor.
  5. Stamp the dragonflies from the new Beautiful Dragonflies stamp set in black ink. Do not stamp so hard. You want a faded look for parts of the dragonflies.
  6.  Stamp the sentiment using Embossing Ink.
  7. Sprinkle Antique Gold Embossing Powder over the stamped sentiment.
  8. Heat set that embossing powder.
  9. Adhere the watercolor panel to the card base.
  10. Use We R Memory Keepers 3-Way Corner Punch to round the corners.

Simple yet elegant!

How to Stamp on a Canvas Bag

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to show you how to stamp on a canvas bag using Technique Tuesday Cherry Blossom stamp set!!

Let’s take a look:

Cherry Blossom Stamp Set

I love the simplicity of this stamp set and the way it looks on this canvas bag. Stamping this image was easy with the Memory MISTI.

Let me show you how:

Place the Canvas bag in the Memory MISTI at the bottom right hand corner.

Memory MISTI

Add magnets inside the bag so that the bag does not move in the process of stamping.

Memory MISTI Magnets

Place the stamp where you want the image to appear, close the MISTI door and the stamp will stick to the plate. Now the stamp is positioned in the right place each time you stamp.

Memory MISTI

Stamp the image using ink that is waterproof since paint will be applied to the image. I used Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

Now its time to add color to the image:

Now it’s to pick the paint.

I went with QoR watercolors because I could blend the colors in the small space.

Memory MISTI

Nice and easy.

What do you think? Will you try stamping on a canvas material? I would love to see what you create.

Happy Day with Concord & 9th

Concord and 9th

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today showcasing the yet another stamp set from Concord & 9th August Release.

Today it’s all about balloons with the Happy Balloon stamp set!!

Let’s take a look:

concord & 9th happy balloon

I love how the balloons can be used as hot air balloons too.  This stamp set is so versatile and can be used all year round.

Here’s how I created this card:

Simple stamp the solid balloon using Altenew Deep Iris Ink.

Using the decorative balloon stamp and the basket stamp, stamp the image using Altenew Black Ink.

To finish the card off, stamp the sentiment right under the balloon.

Nice, clean and simple.  This card is so doable and the possibilities of making a couple of these cards are great.

Art Journaling – My Magical Garden

Second Post for today
If your looking the the Altenew Traveler’s Notebook post, click here


Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a new found love of mine.  I recently started keeping an art journal and I’m having an amazing time with it.

I’m a beginner and I totally love getting my fingers dirty with paint!! It is totally freeing to just play!

Once I finished getting my paint down and dried, I used Lavinia Stamps to add my magical garden.

Take a look:

Lavinia Stamps

I love how this turned out!! I love that I created it!! I can’t wait to give this a try again.  I’m such a clean and simple crafter that when I see pieces like this I’m amazed.  It all makes sense to me now.

I’m going to enter this into the Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge. I miss those ladies so I’m stopping by to share my work with them.  I hope I’m able to amaze them.

{Clean and Simple} CASology – Grow

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 created a couple of cards in different sizes using this super cute stamp from a new company to me called Raw Market Shop! They are located in Singapore!

I found them on Instagram and have been hooked since.  I placed three different orders because I’m a bit obsessed, LOL!!

The photo below is a picture of the first order that I placed:

This stamp set says, “no rain, no flower”, which is perfect for our cue card today.  Flowers will not grow without water.  This stamp set is called No. 11 Floral Stamp.

For these cards, I simple stamped the image on Neenah Desert Storm 100lb cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I love the simplicity of these cards.  They can be used for any occasion.

Super Clean and Simple!!
