Carabelle Studio Stamps Card Not My Monkey by Debra James

Carabelle Studio Stamps Card Not My Monkey

Hello there..There is something about this MONKEY from CARABELLE STUDIO Stamps that just makes me smile each time I see him/her. I just had to ink up the stamp again to use on my Carabelle Studio Stamps Card Not My Monkey.

I created my background using Dina Wakely Paints and watering them down ever so lightly and smooshing onto a piece of watercolour card.

Then I used a couple of other  CARABELLE STUDIO STAMPS – The clouds came from “INNOCENCE” and the frame from “LES BASIKS #2” and stamped this directly onto my background base with Black ink.

I stamped the MONKEY onto a piece of white card and then using my Tim Holtz DISTRESS CRAYONS added just a touch of colour to the crown and the wings and then cut out.

Of course I had to add some splatters with my Posca pens.

I found the perfect sentiment from Tim HOLTZ Chit Chat stickers to add to my card gluing it towards the bottom.

Im not sure who I will give this card to yet but I’m sure the right recipient will come along soon, lol..

Till next time, Bye for now, Debra.

Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go! with Melinda Sweetman

Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go

Hey everyone and welcome once again to the Anna’s blog! I’m excited (as always!) to be here sharing my latest creations for Anna’s and here is my Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go.

This month I got to play with the beautiful and fun Heidi Swapp Color Fresh collection and here is  the first page I created titled Way To Go!

Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go

Before I started I had chosen my photo and a fun technique I have seen a few times recently! I was lucky enough to receive the stamp set that came in this collection and really wanted it to feature on my page.

Starting with 4″ x 12″ piece of smooth card I got to stamping! I started with the biggest pieces and worked my way to the smallest. And for the really little stars I grabbed a stamp from my stash and and added in some tiny stamps! I made sure to use a permanent ink for my stamping.

This collection has so many beautiful colours and patterns that choosing a background was proving difficult! I narrowed it down to this beautiful paper called Paint The Town.

IMG 8761 300x225 - Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go! with Melinda Sweetman

Using the paper to guide my colour choice I picked a few mists and added lots of splatters. And, of course, gold 😉

IMG 8762 300x234 - Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go! with Melinda Sweetman

I added in a couple of layers of paper behind my photo starting with the B side of Note It and then Spectrum. I thought the white from Spectrum did a great job of separating the background from my photo.

IMG 8758 300x225 - Heidi Swapp Color Fresh Layout Way to Go! with Melinda Sweetman

Time to add my title and embellish! I love the Color Fresh thickers and how they are all different colours so used those for my title.

The new Annabelle acrylics are so great, I just love them! The Word Pack 3 Success in White helped me pick my photo to begin with so I chose 3 of those to embellish with and create my visual triangle. Added to those were some ephemera pieces and some stickers from the 6 x 12 sticker sheet. And a black acrylic number 9 from the Annabelle set Number Pack 1 Black.

And because I love them so much I added in some of the Annabelle black acrylic stars along the horizontal line my embellishing had taken on!

I added my journalling, some machine stitching in white and the date to complete my page. You can see my full process video below!

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed my first share with the Heidi Swapp Color Fresh collection! I can’t wait to share with you my other creations!

Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Braver, Stronger, Smarter by Kim Ewins

Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Braver, Stronger, Smarter

Hello again, Kim here to share my Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Braver, Stronger, Smarter.

This is my final project created using the Kaisercraft Enchanted range. A fabulous range from Kaisercraft, suitable for many creative projects!

Today I have a layout to share with you all. My layout is titled Braver, Stronger, Smarter and features my youngest daughter, Sidney.

Sidney is quite the perfectionist in all things she does. The last couple of weeks she has been sitting her trial HSC exams, so the pressure she has put on herself has been great. I am sure she has done very well.

Let me show you my layout ‘Braver, Stronger, Smarter’

ACC kais enchanted lo3 270x300 - Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Braver, Stronger, Smarter by Kim Ewins

When I first received the Kaisercraft Enchanted Range the sheet of 12″x 12″ Kaisercraft Enchanted Idyllic really caught my eye and I knew I wanted to feature it for one of my layouts. I took the  Idyllic sheet and using a stencil and some Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Black Soot black Ink added some background interest. I then mixed some Prima Finnabair Art Basics – Heavy Gesso with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical shaker in Cathedral Pines Green. Once combined, I used a leaf stencil and the coloured gesso and added some texture behind where I wanted my photo to sit. I then let this dry. Next I took the Idyllic sheet from the  Kaisercraft Enchanted 6.5″ x 6.5″ paper pad and trimmed around 4cm from one side, I stuck some cardboard to the back of this section and stuck it on my base paper. Then I stuck the 4cm strip cut from the 6.5″ Idyllic paper across ways. (check out the photo’s). I also cut some cardboard and stuck it to the back of my photo and then stuck it in place.

ACC kais enchanted lo3cu1 212x300 - Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Braver, Stronger, Smarter by Kim Ewins

Next I painted my chipboard pieces with some dark green acrylic paint, let dry and then stuck it in place. Next I added some fussy cut elements cut from the 6.5″x 6.5″ pad, inking the edges of these, using a blending tool and black ink, I then tied a double bow using some satin seam binding and stuck that down.

My title was on one of the description strips so I trimmed it down and backed it with some black cardstock and glued it down once I was happy with placement. Lastly I added some splatters of black and green ink.

The Kaisercraft Enchanted Range has been a lot of fun to create with and it would be fabulous for creating male and/or female projects with!

I do hope you have enjoyed reading about how my layout was put together and also looking at a few close ups. I hope I have inspired you to get a little (or a lot) creative?

Thanks for stopping by to view my Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Braver, Stronger, Smarter.

Until Next Time

Kaisercraft Enchanted Tags by Kim Ewins

Kaisercraft Enchanted Tags

Hello again! Kim here to share my Kaisercraft Enchanted Tags.

Here are some gift tags I have created using the magical Kaisercraft Enchanted Range HERE.

I have created two tags, now these aren’t my usual type of style, but I really enjoyed making them!

Here let me show you….

ACC kais enchanted Tags 279x300 - Kaisercraft Enchanted Tags by Kim Ewins

To make these tags I first cut two identical black bases from thick cardboard. I then covered one side with a clear glue, using an old credit card I smoothed out glue, leaving a nice even layer of glue. Next I took the Kaisercraft Enchanted Paper – Picturesque and I stuck the tags to the reverse side (green side), lining the papers up to feature the birds on the paper. I then waited for the glue to dry. Once dry I trimmed away the excess paper and then I machine stitched, twice around one tag and just once around the second. I then added some large Ric-Rac and a Prima flower to each tag. For the first tag I added some Kaisercraft Enchanted Collectables (the gorgeous leaves), a sentiment/quote from the 6.5″x 6.5″Kaisercraft Enchanted Pad. I stuck the quote to some black cardboard, let dry and then trimmed it and stuck it in place. I also used some Kaisercraft Wooden Flourishes on both tags and also some stamens I had floating about!

The final touch was to punch a hole in the centre top of my tags and thread through some satin seam binding.

Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Dreams Do Come True by Kim Ewins

Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Dreams Do Come True

Hello, hello! Kim here with you today to share my Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Dreams Do Come True.

This is my second layout created you the Enchanted Range from Kaisercraft.

Today my layout features not only the gorgeous Enchanted Range from Kaisercraft but also one super cute photo!

Let me show you my layout….

ACC Kaisercraftenchanted LO2 275x300 - Kaisercraft Enchanted Layout Dreams Do Come True by Kim Ewins

For this layout I started with the Kaisercraft Enchanted – Wonder 12″x 12″ sheet of paper. I then took the 12″x 12″ sheet of Enchanted – Utopia paper and trimmed a section to fit the lower section of my base paper. I distressed the edges of the trimmed Utopia paper and stuck in place using double sided tape. Then using some of the Kaisercraft Enchanted Collectables I arranged some of the flower elements in the top right corner. Once happy with placement I stuck these down and trimmed off any overhanging pieces. Next, I glued a little muslin around the lower edges of the Utopia paper. Then, I took out my trusty sewing machine and added two lines of stitching roughly 1-1.5cm in from all four sides.

I also stuck some muslin to the upper edge of the Utopia paper section. Next, I double matted the super sweet photo using matching papers from the Kaisercraft Enchanted 6.5″x 6.5″ paper pad, Adding cardboard between each of the layers. I also stuck some lace around one of the matts to create a little interest. Once happy I stuck my matted photo in place on my layout. Next I added in some of the collectables, (with some of the toadstools I added some cardboard to the back before I stuck them down), some fussy cut flowers, and a few little gingham bows. I decided to use one of the sentiments which I found in the 6.5″x 6.5″ pad as my title ‘Dreams Do Come True’ adding a touch of muslin behind it and also using a cardboard to give it height. Lastly, I stuck the quote in place, as I thought it added a little something. I liked the extra pop of red!
