  • ISC June Release Day 3 -Rainbow Brite

    I had a hodgepodge water color background sitting on my desk from another project and used it for my flower and greeting oval. I stamped the petals in several places then pieced them together. The oval frame was also sitting out so I scribbled inside an embossing border folder w/ markers and embossed across the bottom. The butterfly was punched out of the same background as were the little circles on the top corners. I used more of the rainbow bg for the middle layer. The finished card measures 4.5 x 6.25 (A6).

    For my card, I used the Notebook Paper image to create the frame around my sunflower panel. It’s stamped on ivory c/s and I used a lt pink marker to add a little color. The sunflower was colored with markers, cut out and attached on top of a circle frame. Under the circle frame is a dictionary tag (Tim Holtz). The sentiment was die cut and I cut a stamped daisy in quarters and attached them in the corners.

  • ISC May Reworking the Butterflies

    Best of 2011

    Instead of a new release, this month we’re taking images of our choice and reworking, or using them again. Betsy says she gets a lot of request for more art using some of the butterfly images. We all buy images, maybe use them a few times, then move on to new stuff.  So this month, we’re using images from our stash and let me tell you, I used a whole bunch of different images from a lot of different releases. And I’ll mention here that NO Designer Paper was used. A lot of background images and inks were used to create the different looks.

    For inspiration on this first card, Betsy provided a link to a couple of pictures and I chose this Montage. I went very literal for my card. For the blue and green background, I used several texture background images from Textured  Backgrounds and Dimensional Elements Edges 1.  For the tan panel, I colored the inside of the embossing folder w/ a green marker and embossed it. All edges were sponged w/ the tea dye and chocolate inks. The frame was shortened to fit the central panel using a SAMJ and after coloring the butterfly w/ markers, I cut it out and attached it on top. The finished ivory card measures 5.5 square.

    Supplies:

    Stamps: ISC -Textured  Backgrounds,  Dimensional Elements Edges 1, Beautiful Butterflies III, Fruitful (frame), Tropics (greeting)
    Paper: ivory, blue, sage, tan
    Ink: VersaFine Onyx, Ancient Page chocolate, Distress Ink Tea Dye, Colorbox white pigment
    Accessories: Cuttlebug Bird Call embossing folder, Tombow markers, brads, small pin, SAMJ (stamp-a-ma-jig)

    On the second card, I used sponging and masking to create the main panel. A while back, I saw this card by TheresaCC when she was the featured stamper at Splitcoast. I loved the layout but didn’t have a chance to try it out until now. I stamped and masked the daisies and background leaves then stamped the daisies again on a separate piece of c/s. When I saw that the ribbon placement would cover the original images, I cut out the second set and attached them on top. The pink, blue and green inks were sponged onto the white panel w/ the image masks in place. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5.

    Supplies:

    Stamps: ISC – Oriental Nature Elements, Nature Silhouettes II, Nature Silhouettes III, Artful Décor, Silhouette Butterfly ATC, Marvels of Nature III (tiny butterflies)
