Archive for the ‘Embossing/Dry or Heat’ Category

Such a wonderful assortment of birdhouses on the Etsy board Stacy chose for this week’s Inspiration Challenge (IC685). After much browsing, I chose THIS. I really liked the text/writing on the bird house & the cute little yellow birds. 

After stamping, coloring & die cutting the birds, I set about constructing a birdhouse. Originally I made one that I wrote all over, but it just didn’t look right. Then I made one that I stamped a text all over, but it looked too busy. So I made a white one, added a little embossing & attached it over the text one so that just the edges showed. I added a die cut ground & grass (from left over acrylic paint bg) & put the greeting on a “sun” shape. I know the birdhouse is a little close to the ground, but I ran out of real estate on the card front, lol. 

Here’s a look at the inside. And below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today’s CAS Challentge (CAS516) is to use round things. My greeting in on a scalloped circle & backed by a plain circle. 

My CAS card was really just that. I had the embossed bg in my stash (it is a Belleek technique). I added a larger lilac layer & a sheer bow & done!

Such a super site for the Inspiration Challenge (IC684)! After much browsing, I chose THIS. It reminded me of a lovely stamp I have but have not used.

I used my Misti to stamp the image onto watercolor paper & stamped it once w/ lt green ink on the leaves & again w/ pink ink on the flowers. After watercoloring it, I decided the image outlines didn’t show up enough, so I stamped over it w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder. I used an angled border die to cut the bottom & insert a piece of flower print paper, before putting them back together. The gold stripe edges are washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
