Let’s Celebrate

Morning, what have you got planned today? I’ve got to tidy my craft desk, hopefully find my small Dylusions journal!!, and then it’s head down and on with some DT work.

 

 

Step By Step

1. Cut a circle, I’ve used a Tattered Lace circle die, from white card stock.

2. Used a circle stencil, which had various sizes of circles, with Creative Expressions Colour Cloud blending ink and a Smoothie sponge. I used only one colour for the circles, Smudged Charcoal, applying more or less colour to create the variation in shades.

3. Stamped the solid tulips, from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, with black Generation INX.

4. Stamped the tulip sketch outline , also from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, using a Versamark ink. Used white detail embossing powder and heat set, I used an anti-static bag before using the embossing powder.

5. Used a Derwent Graphik paint liner pen to add sketchy outlines to the grey circles.

6. Stamped the Let’s Celebrate sentiment, from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, with black Generation INX.

7. Using a circle die, I cut the centre from the larger circle background. Cut larger circles from black card stock, matted and layered the two sections onto the black card stock.

8. Cut two circles from white card stock to create the card blank. Scored one of the white circles, approx 1″, used red super sticky tape on the small scored area. Adhered the two circles together to construct the card blank, trimmed a sliver of card from the bottom of the card blank so it wouldn’t roll.

 9.  On a piece of white card stock, stamped the Hooray sentiment and edged with the tulip sketch outline, both from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, with black Generation INX. Matted onto black card stock.

10. Adhered to background and sentiment to the card blank, added some small coloured gems to the background and the sentiment.

It’s Your Birthday

Afternoon, a late start because my fur baby is not feeling well. Nothing too serious but he’s feeling sorry for himself, he’s spent the morning sitting on my knee having snugs, it’s good job he’s not a big dog!

Sharing a little birthday card today, simple to make but I loved how this one turned out.

 

 

Step by Step

1. Created a master board using Dylusions paints and a brayer.

2. Trimmed master board to size, stamped the flower, from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, using Archival inks.

3. Used an Imagination Crafts stencil, black Archval ink and a blending tool to add the circles to the background.

4. Stamped the text, also from the Stamps By Me – Hooray stamp set, in black Archival ink. Inked the edges with Black Soot Distress ink and a blending tool.

5. Matted onto white card stock and adhered to a black card blank.

Step by Step

1. Took a piece of white tissue paper, slightly larger than the 5×7″ canvas board, scrumpled up the tissue paper. Applied a coat of matte Mod Podge to the canvas and stuck down the tissue paper. Applied a coat of matte Mod Podge over the entire canvas.

2. Once the Mod Podge was dry, used a Creative Expressions mini stencil and DecoArt white modelling paste to create additional texture to the background.

3. Once the modelling paste was dry, used Faber Castell Gelatos, in orange, yellow and red shades, to cover the entire canvas. Sealed the FC Gelatos using DecoArt Matte Medium and a sponge.

4. Once the Matte Medium was completely dry, used DecoArt Metallic Lustre Wax to highlight the texture in the background.

5. Using white card stock, stamped the butterflies, from the Stamps By Me Lamination Butterfly stamp set, with Distress inks and black Generation INX.
