Why is this so exciting because I’ve always been a clean and simple artist but since Creativation this year I’ve been so intrigued with mixed media and stencils.  I met Mary Beth Shaw while at the show and was amazed at what she shared with me.

So I bought my first stencil and my life hasn’t been the same since!!

Here’s a sneak peek:

Distress Techniques Day 4

Hello everyone!!  I’m back again with another days work from the Creative Chemistry 103 class.

I skipped Day 2 and 3, but I will come back to it.  Today I will show you what Day 4 is all about.

Day 4 was all about Distress Crayons.

I bought two sets when they came out but I wasn’t a fan of them.  I couldn’t get them to do what I wanted.  Another design team member showed me how I could use them and I was ok with that.  Then this class really set the record straight.

Take a look:

Distress Tags 4

The different techniques are:

  1. Distress Crayon Smudge
  2. Distress Crayon Textured Resist
  3. Distress Crayon Watercolor Resist
  4. Distress Crayon Blended Background
  5. Distress Crayon Layered Coloring

Totally awesome right!!  I love these different techniques!!

Simple Stenciling with So Suzy Stamps

Hello everyone!  I’m here with So Suzy Stamps.  This month the design team is doing a year in review and I was given the month of February to showcase.  Do you remember what stamps were released in February of this year?

No worries, I’m going to refresh your memory.  Starting with this Hello Friend Stamp set!! I’m going to show you how to combine simple stenciling with stamping.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (SSS)

See, simple stenciling with stamping.  I used a retired Stampin’ Up! Stencils and Distress Inks Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door.  I took my time and blend the colors together from both directions.

Once the blending was complete, I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Ink.

I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops to create the black accented dots the the card front.

How fun was this!!

What do think? Please let me know below.

Now don’t forget to check out So Suzy Shop for all of her new goodies in her store.

Supplies used:

Nuvo Ebony Black

Our Next Stamp March 2016 Blog Hop

Mar2016-hopbadge-547x329

Hello everyone!!  Yayyy, I love this blog hop featuring new products from Your Next Stamps makes squeal!! LOL!!

This release is super cute!!  Yesterday’s sneak peek was fun.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Stephanie’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom of this post and start at Anita‘s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the Cool Easter Chick stamp set! I showcased that card yesterday during the sneak peek.  If you didn’t see it here it is.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday to you (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Little Darling Fairy Godmother, Spellbound Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Clarity Stencil Strips, Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Old Paper, and Twisted Citron, Recollection Black Cardstock, Recollection White Cardstock, Tombow Extreme Adhesive

This card was super easy to create!  I blended the colors using the stencil then stamped the sentiment three times.  I added the gumdrops for an added finish.  Sometimes we just need really simple cards.

Happy Easter (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Cool Easter Chick, Black Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, Versafine Onyx Ink, Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing Powder, Prima Confection Watercolor

Here is another simple card but with a little bit more flare.  I did a little watercoloring and then stamped the sentiment right on top of the dried watercoloring. I added some clear embossing powder on top of the stamped sentiment before it dried to give it an extra pop after it was heated set. I added some gumdrops.

Boom!! Done!!

I have a confession:  This Happy Easter card was suppose to be my sneak peek card but I posted my Spring card by mistake.  That was my favorite card, I guess I was super excited about it.  Sorry for the confusion. 

So, what do you think?  I had so much fun creating these cards to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite?  I would love to hear from you!
