The pear is back
Topic: New Work

This is my favorite of the watercolor stamping I did this week. I used the same techniques, just different color-set.

I actually used 4 colors on the pear stamp and then to move color into the open area I misted the paper and smeared color into the center from the edges. 

This is mounted on gold metallic card and the puffy vinyl sticker says 'thinking of you'

Fruit of the season
Topic: New Work

I just picked up this stamp on clearance and had to try it out with the watercolor technique. The stamp was colored with two tones of green marker. After stamping, it leaves the center plain, so I colored yellow marker over the whole thing, leaf included.

It was rather plain-looking so I added a whole unit of Heidi Swapp rub-ons.

Sketchy Floral Stamping
Topic: New Work

This card is made with the watercolor markers on a rubber stamp like yesterday's. However, in this case, when the image was lighter than I wanted I inked it in another color and over-stamped it. 

I added some yellow coloring 'inside the lines', mounted on coral cardstock and added a vellum sticker.

Watercolor Stamps
Topic: New Work

It's been a long time since I tried this stamping technique. I inked up a rubber stamp using watercolor markers, misted with water, stamped on handmade paper and immediately dried with the heat tool.

The image was just a bit loose for my taste so I did some very spare line enhancement with fine-tipped watercolor markers. 

This is mounted on metallic cardstock and a vellum greeting sticker is added.

Stitched in Purple
Topic: New Work

This probably looks familiar. I chose another way to stitch this pattern by Lisa Burns. After folliwing all the holes closely, I decided that the outer row looked unfinished with the holes so far apart, so I placed another hole between each and did another round of stitching. These outer lines are more in keeping with the center grids now. 

I finished this off with a clear text sticker and some floral dorner stickers from the dollar store.

Escape
Topic: New Work

This photo is from our trip to Alaska in May. Skagway is such a quaint little town and I love the photo ops.

For this simple card I used rub-ons for the lettering, mountains, raccoon, and footprints. Then I chose cardstock in rose and cream to pull out the colors of the buildings.

Branching Out
Topic: New Work

This branch is stamped on watercolor paper using brown stamp pad. The branch and blooms are colored with watercolor markers. 

I wasn't happy with the color of the text stamp using brown ink so went over the lettering by hand using the darker of the pinks from the flowers.

Maroon cardstock and a strip of mulberry paper are the finishing touch for this.

Sunflower and Swirls
Topic: New Work

I made this little card to show the grand-daughters about coloring in rubber stamped images. BIG HIT!

I mounted mine on a Cuttlebug background and gold cardstock - both chosen to complement the watercolor markers used in the illustration. 

I used a single word stamped in green for the greeting.

Rose in Bloom
Topic: New Work

I was teaching my grand-daughters how to use the Cuttlebug and made this backfround as a sample. After we had been running everything in sight through the machine we decided to add some color. I used a small 'Whisper' inkpad brushed over the raised text. 

The center sticker introduced more colors so I was able to match it with this piece of eyelash yarn. The last touch was to add corners and a greeting using gold peel-offs.

Pastel Dragonfly
Topic: New Work

Here's another do-up of the dandelion and dragonfly - this time in pastels. I started with pink cardstock and stitched using white and soft green. Then I backed it in green cardstock. 

I used a single-word white rubon and added the rest of the text using white gel pen.

Accordion Folio
Topic: New Work

At mention of an accordion folio I was intrigued so I went online and looked at a few examples. I made up my own way of construction and produced this sample. For assembly it uses three 12 x 12 cardstock and three 12 x 12 patterned paper. Then I used a coordinating paper for decoration and cardstock for tags for the pockets.

The overall book is 6 x 6 inches.

 

I used  4 x 4 cardstock blocks on each page for mounting photos. More photos can be mounted on the 4 x 6 tags. The tags have ribbon pulls and the book ties closed with more ribbon.

Line Upon Line
Topic: New Work

This is another rendition of the stitching pattern by Lisa Burns. I used metallic gold thread on burgundy cardstock. 

Though you can't tell from the photo, the first mat is also glittery metallic as are the greeting stickers. The green card is actually almost moss green.

When is someone going to invent a digital camera or scanner that renders TRUE COLOR?

Calendar illustrations make great cards! This bird was trimmed close and the colors echoed in three tones of cardstock. I added a band of satin ribbon and a bow. 

Clear stickers were added as flowers and text.

On the Move
Topic: New Work

I used tones of cardstock that would draw out the sunset colors on this magazine illustration. I just loved the look of these horses running wild.

Gems of Alaska
Topic: New Work

I picked up these rough amethyst at a store in Skagway, Alaska. The owner picks them up when he is out hiking and tosses them in a box by the register. I tried to get ones that matched well in three sizes.

I used wire-wrapping to connect them and create this pendant. I had the silver chain on hand to finish it off.

This is pretty close to life-size.

Pansies in Thread
Topic: New Work

These stitched pansies are my own design. When I prick out designs I often layer and prick through 3-4 sheets at once. This allows me to stitch several cards without the tedium of all the prep work.  

In this case I used scrapbook paper with a faux quilt pattern.

Good Luck Kanji
Topic: New Work

Stitching stickers are used for corners in this Kanji character card. I designed the character for stitching and worked it in blue metallic thread on green card. The tassel is created using more of the blue thread and all the elements are mounted on cream cardstock.

Stick & Stitch
Topic: New Work

These clear stitching stickers were placed  on a green background and stitched with green metallic thread. Green holographic stickers are used as accents in the medallion.

The stitched stickers are mounted on cream cardstock.

Borrowed Elements
Topic: New Work

I borrowed this illustration from my d-i-l's blog, turned it into a 3D card, backed it with plaid to mimic her blog background, and added a text sticker and silver peel-offs.

This made a perfect card for the family's house-warming.

Flower Tile Card
Topic: New Work

This 3D illustration with a tile background works up so beautifully. I gave it a background of scrapbook paper and a vellum text sticker to finish it off.
