                  Sasayaki Glitter ~ New Release ~ Beach Frog

                  Good Evening Dreamers

                  WOW did you guys notice this is an evening post? Not the norm for me but I have some fun news.  This post is my first official post as part of the Design Team for Sasayaki Glitter.  My first project is for the new release and I used Image #102 - Beach Frog
                  ~

                  Card Recipe
                  I uploaded the digital stamp into Craft Artist and sized it to just smaller than a portrait A2 sized card and printed it onto Copic X-Press It cardstock. Image was colored in using various Copic, Pencil, and Distress Oxide inks. Background was sponged on with a light hand and a stencil for the sky and just barely kissing the paper with the sponge dauber for the sand. Glossy Accents added to glasses, polka dots, and starfish.

                  Victorine Originals ~ Challenge #11 ~ Pearls and Lace

                  Good Morning Dreamerz,

                  Today is the start of Challenge #11 on the Victorine Originals BlogThe theme for this challenge is: "PEARLS AND LACE".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
                  Wedding Couple Silhouette


                  Card Recipe:
                  I used a MISTI stamping tool to complete this project. I first created my background using a piece of silver foiled paper from my stash cut down to A2 size, then I used Distress inks and a blending tool to color in the non foiled parts of the paper. I had a nice sentiment from my stash that I stamped in black ink for this layer.  For the wedding couple I started with a scalloped edge die cut piece of vellum and stamped the couple with versamark embossing ink and applied Altenew Golden Peach embossing powder and heat set with my heat gun. Assembly was fairly easy yet tricky. I glued the foiled layer to my card base, then I applied tiny double sided micro glue dots to the backside of the velum embossed couple (Tip: If you apply your adhesive to the reverse side of velum try to pick an embossed part of the image so the adhesive does not show) I laid the vellum layer on the top of the distress foiled layer and used a strip of adhesive lace from my stash to hold it in place. Lastly I used a tiny bit of bling to highlight the sentiment that is visible under the vellum.

                  Soccer Ball Slider Birthday ~ Victorine Originals

                  Good Morning Dreamerz,

                  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals BlogHere's my inspiration for you using: Soccer Ball (1440-B)


                  Card Recipe:
                  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb used for all paper except black heavyweight cardstock from my stash used to create silhouette of soccer play that was cut using my Cricut Explore Air. I stamped the soccer ball using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, fussy cut the soccer ball and applied versamark embossing ink over the whole ball. I applied WOW clear embossing powder and heat set using my heat gun. I repeated this process a couple times so that my ball has a very glossy look to it and to make it even stiffer.  I then went about creating the background. I took the Lawn Fawn grassy border die and die cut a scratch piece of paper to use as my stencil/mask. Using various colors of green distress inks I blended the grass as shown.  For the sky I used various blue distress inks and my blending tool to achieve the look. To create the slider channel I used the My Favorite Things DIE Namics Surf & Turf  dies.

                  Whisper "I Love You" ~ Victorine Originals

                  Good Morning Dreamerz,

                  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals Blog. In keeping with the Wings theme I chose to use Wings Set 10580-X for my inspiration today.



                  Card Recipe:
                  I used an acrylic block with the 2 wings set very close together and stamped them in a random pattern on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb card stock  using Distress Oxide in Broken China, the little butterfly body is from my stash stamped with Hero Arts Soft Granite. For the top layer with the sentiment I found a quote online that I have really loved for many years and I used my Serif Craft Artist 2 program to type the text and get it just the way I wanted, once I was satisfied I printed it off then die cut the layer as shown in the finished project. Both the sentiment layer and the butterfly layer are matted on a dark grey layer. Lastly I attached all layers as shown to a side folding A2 sized piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb card stock

                  ATC ~ Oddball Art Stamps

                  Good Morning Dreamerz

                  Just realized I had nothing on the blog to post for a few days and thought I would share a few ATC's with you.  What is an ATC you ask? I will do my best to explain. An Artist Trading Card aka ATC is a baseball size card 2.5 x 3.5 inches that you can use any medium to decorate.  For my ATC's I chose Watercolor.





                  Well Dreamers, that is all for now, have a great day and see you all in a few days.

                  Camp Create Day 5 ~ Delightful Die Cutting ~ Happy Birthday

                  Good Morning Dreamers,

                  This morning I am sharing my card for My Favorite Things Camp Create  using the Delightful Die Cutting Technique



                  After watching the Delightful Die Cutting Tutorial Video I learned the best technique ever on how to align and line up those die cuts that need to to have just the right spacing and so that each piece goes exactly where it should be.  I have quite a few men in my life with birthdays coming up and I always struggle with making cards that are geared towards men.  So I set out to make a few using this new technique and after the first few I had a full on assembly line and was able to knock out quite a few in different colors in no time at all. Here is one of the ones I made, I kept most of the cards to a very limited color scheme relying on the different black and white patterns on the paper that I used for the candles to be the focal point of the card.

                  Card Recipe:
                  I started my project using the largest die from the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched dies to die cut the very bottom base layer of my card from some blue paper from my stash. I then gathered up a bunch of the black and white pattern papers that I had a huge scrap pile of and I used those to die cut the candles using the Die-namics Birthday Candles die. Also from my scrap pile was a bunch of self adhesive silver glitter paper that I decided to use for the candle flames. The hearts were cut from white cardstock and then colored in using a copic marker. Once everything was die cut I set about using the technique from the video and WOW so so easy, no clue why I had never thought of this before. 
                   I glued the the whole thing to the front of a side folding piece of A2 sized card base of black heavyweight cardstock from my stash

                  Camp Create Bonus Bonfire ~ Awesome Ombre ~ Your Hugs

                  Good Morning Dreamers,

                  This morning I am sharing my card for My Favorite Things Camp Create Bonfire Bonus project using the Awesome Ombre Technique



                  Card Recipe:
                  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb for the stamped layer cut to 5.5 x 4.25.
                   I used the all over stamp Everything Floral from Hero Arts embossed with white embossing powder.  I used Distress Ink Peacock Feathers to achieve the Ombre effect on my card. A stitched rectangle die from my stash was used to trim down the layer. I took Distress Ink in Ripe Persimmon and used a sponge applicator to color another sheet of cardstock, once done and dry I stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Lots of Hugs stamp set using versamark and then white embossing powder. Cut down the sentiment to a strip and attached with adhesive. I glued the the whole thing to the front of a side folding piece of A2 sized card base of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb cardstock.

                  This week we have a new challenge at Come and Get It, with our Sponsor being My Besties. Our challenge is Pink, Blue, Purple, & Yellow. I have used the image called

                  Camp Create Day 4 ~ Monochromatic Magic ~ Tickled Pink

                  Good Morning Dreamers,

                  This morning I am sharing my card for My Favorite Things Camp Create using the Monochromatic Magic Technique


                  Card Recipe:
                  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb for the stamped layer cut to 5.5 x 4.25.
                   I used the all over stamp Fantasy Floral from My Favorite Things.  To get the colors from dark pink to light pink I used 3 different shades of chalk ink from my stash. I then used a stitched rectangle die to trim down the stamped layer. Then  I took the mid tone pink and used a sponge applicator to color another sheet of cardstock, once done and dry I took the darkest pink and positioned the paper so that just the flowers would be stamped and stamped them so that I could fussy cut them out as seen in the picture.  Again using the darkest pink I went around the edge of a top folding A2 sized card base of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb cardstock.  I did this to tie in the whole Monochromatic theme. I glued the stamped layer to the card base, then the fun began, LOL. I used some silver thread to create the embellishment that would lay under the fussy cut flowers, then I glued the flowers down on top.  The sentiment is from the Tickled Pink stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I masked off the bottom part of the sentiment so as to only emboss the TICKLED PINK part on my black cardstock with white embossing powder.  I used My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Banner dies to die cut the sentiment. To affix the sentiment I cut a thin strip of black foam and glued it to the back of the banner to give a little dimension and then glued to the front of the card as seen.

                  Victorine Originals ~ Challenge #9 ~ Wings

                  Good Morning Dreamerz,

                  Today is the start of Challenge #9 on the Victorine Originals BlogThe theme for this challenge is: "WINGS".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
                  Wings Set 10580-X



                  Card Recipe:
                  I used an acrylic block with the 2 wings set very close together and stamped them in a random pattern on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb card stock using versafine embossing ink along with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder.

                  I used Distress inks and a blending tool to blend the Theme colors onto the embossed layer, once I was happy with my blending I flicked water using my fingers onto the layer, let sit for a few seconds and then used a paper towel to blot up any excess water which gives a very soft subtle distressed look to the layer. For the top layer with the sentiment I found a quote online that I have really loved for many years and I used my Serif Craft Artist 2 program to type the text and get it just the way I wanted, once I was satisfied I printed it off then cut the layer as shown in the finished project, I stamped one last butterfly using Antique Linen Distress Oxide and then again using my ink blending tool I went around the edges giving a soft subtle shade of color. Lastly I attached the butterfly layer to a top folding A2 sized piece of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 120lb card stock, added a layer of fun foam cut to size on the sentiment layer and attached to top of butterfly layer. For water drop embellishments I used Kat Scrappiness Sparkling Clear Droplets in assorted sizes
