Mechanical Steampuck Birthday Card

Welcome back and Nancy, here, to share another male card made with the Sizzix Mechanical die set along with the fun Prima Marketing Rusty Pipeline mould along with other gears, cogs and a stamp set in my Steampuck stash.  I was able to find an ole Tim Holtz embossing gear folder and used black heavy cardstock.   I sponged the gears and cogs with my new favorite Prima Marketing Redesign Brass wax along with another Prima Marketing Firebird wax and Charcoal Black.  The Tim Holtz top hat stamp - Imaginery is similar to Tim Holtz Crazy Thing stamp and die set available at The Rubber Buggy.  I stamped and fussy cut mine after stamping the set with Ranger Distress Oxide Tea Dye ink and embossed it with a clear embossing powder. I found a clock from the Craft O'Clock Plum in Chocolate and used it in the center.  I colored parts of the stamp with a red Copic marker.  I wanted a black top hat but found that the color blended into the background so I had to go lighter.  I used Prima Marketing Redesign Brass wax with Prima Marketing Firebird wax on the Prima Marketing Rusty Pipeline mould casting.  I used an epoxy resin for my mould and let dry over night before coloring and adhering to my card.  I used the small pipes  in this mould for this card.   I added a few other metal embellishments from my stash and adhered these to the card with Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Glue.

You Brighten My Day with Simple Stories

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  


I wanted to create a bright and colorful card using one of the frames from the Simple Stories - Simple Vintage Farmhouse Garden Chipboard Frames set.


I wanted the frame to stand out but wanted some background dimension  on the card so I used the Ciao Bella Blossom Stencil.


I used Ranger Distress Oxide Ink in Abandoned Coral, repeatedly moving the stencil around the card.


I poured Ranger Clear Embossing Powder over the stenciled design and used the Sizzix Making Essentials Anti Static Funnel Tray to catch the embossing powder.  I usually get embossing powders and glitters everywhere, but this tray made it so easy to keep the embossing powder from exploding.


I think it made a wonderful background for the card.


I cut a panel of Simple Stories Vintage Farmhouse Garden to fit behind one of the frames, then adhered the panel to the card.  Inside the card, I added another sheet of paper from this collection to finish.


The phrase was stamped with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink, die cut with Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Circle Die and matted with a larger die.

Stamperia Hortsenia Shabby Chic Birthday Card




Welcome back and Nancy, here to share a shabby chic card made with the gorgeous Stamperia Hortensia paper.  The colors of lavender, purple and greens of the beautiful Hortensia flowers coupled with butterflies will bring a delightful reminder of the smells of these beautiful flowers and sights of fluttering butterflies and springtime birds around your area for late spring and early summer.

For details:
  • First, create a 5″ x 7″ top fold card base from heavy white cardstock which I prefer 110 wt.
  • Next, mat a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2″ panel of floral design paper from Stamperia Hortensia on purple cardstock measuring 4 3/4" x 5 3/4". Continue with layering as much as you want cutting 1/4" less for each layer.  I love using double layering or more on many of my shabby chic cards.
  • Now fussy cut the sentiments from the paper pack.  Add the Stamperia Hortensia chipboard sentiment to the center along with the dragon fly and buttlerflies chipboard. NOTE:  Stamperia Hortensia chipboard images are also found the the cardstock of Stamperia Hortensia paper pad.  
  • Now tie a double loop bow with purple seam binding ribbon.  Adhere to the card and then add handmade flowers with a 5mm flat back pearl in the center or Wild Orchid Craft flowers.  
  • The inside card with covered with the Stamperia Hortensia paper.  I scan part of one page and used my Photoshop to type in the birthday sentiment.  I adhered it with the Beacon 3-n-1 Advanced glue.

Stamperia Hortensia is available 12" x 12" or 8" x 8"

So get crafting and have a fabulous  day and thanks for visiting.

Catch Your Dream Journal

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  


I found this Scrapaholics Chipboard - Catch Your Dream - an amazing element to work with.  At approximately 8" x 2 3/4", it stands alone as a perfect embellishment.


I used assorted Ranger Distress Oxide Inks to add color - Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Ground Espresso, and Mowed Lawn as my first layer of color.


I added Ranger Distress Oxide Ink in Faded Jeans for a final color.


Once all the colors were added, I added Ranger Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.  Since I am forever getting embossing powder and glitters all over the place, I found the Sizzix - Making Essentials Anti Static Funnel Tray by Tim Holtz invaluable!  Now all my powders stay within the confines of the Funnel Tray and easily pour back into the original jar.


I wanted to add this piece to a journal and the store has tons of journals you can use to document your dreams.  To add a touch of color to the background I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays.  Each set of sprays are highly pigmented and achieve amazing results.   


What a great way to remind yourself of what it is you want to achieve/do in your life.   Alternatively, you could even use this piece on a canvas and hang on the wall so you see it every day as a reminder of what you are chasing.

Lawn Fawn Cactus Birthday Card



Welcome back and Nancy, here, to share a fun birthday card for my grandson who requested a cactus card for his birthday from all of the adorable Lawn Fawn stamps in my collection.  Easy peasy birthday card that was stamped and fussy cut with the Lawn Fawn Year Ten stamp collection for the cactus and flowers and first colored with Copic markers.  The hills were cut out with the Lawn Fawn Slimline Stitched Hillside border and sponged on the Ranger Crackling Campfire and Ranger Wild Honey ink for the hillside and sky.  I sprayed on the Lindy's Stamp Gang Shimmer Spray-Victorian Bouquet using the purple spray for the sky and green bottle for the hillsides.

I cut out a sun from my Brother's Scan and Cut and stamped on the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Circle Sentiments that also has the sun glasses with this stamp set.  


  So get crafting and have a fabulous  day and thanks for visiting.

Collect Beautiful Moments

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with lots of fun products from the store.  




This beautiful floral stamp is a Magnolia Stamp - Meadow Daisy - and is a perfect size for a card front.  I stamped it with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink, then colored it with Copic Markers.  I used Ranger Distress  Ink in Speckled Egg to add color to the sky using Ranger Mini Domes Ink Blending Foams, and used Copic Markers to add the ground.  The image was die cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies, then matted on Lawn Fawn Kraft cardstock.


Collect Beautiful Moments is from Stampers Anonymous Tiny Text stamp set and it was also stamped with Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Ink directly on the card.


Using Ranger Ice Stickles in Twinkle, I added dimension to the Daisy petals.  Next, I added Ranger Liquid Pearls in Copper to the Daisy center.


What beautiful moments will you collect today?

Thank you for visiting.

Stamperia Cosmos with Prima Marketing Nocturnal Element mould


 
Welcome back and Nancy, here to share a fun card made with the gorgeous Stamperia Cosmos along with the Prima Marketing mould-Nocturnal Elements.  In the evening and looking up at the night sky in wonder with beauty of the moon and stars and the animals and birds looking for their prey, the Stamperia Cosmos with the Prima Marketing mould-Nocturnal Elements are gorgeous together.





I created a U-Tube on my techniques to creating the casting from the Prima Marketing Nocturnal Element mould.  I am starting to get the hand of this and wanted to share what I have found successful so far working with these moulds using an epoxy resin which is much easier than working with clays, etc. for me. 

I used both a hot glue gun and Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Glue. to adhere the casting on the card and prefer the glue. 

This time I used the Prima Marketing Clear Gesso on the castings and let dry before sponging and brushing on the waxes on the moon and stars.

I added two Prima Marketing Finnabair Melange Art Pebble to additional accent to the card.  I am really loving the Prima Marketing waxes and especially the Prima Marketing Redesign Wax-Brass that was added to the stars along with the Prima Marketing new wax Old White and some of the older Prima Marketing metallic waxes.  

 Have a fabulous crafting day and thanks for visiting.
