Two Paper Divas~ Happy Trails to you...

Happy Friday Crafty Friends, I'm back to share with you an lil' make I made for
http://www.twopaperdivas.com/shop/


using the newly released Howdy. I love this set for masculine cards and the DT gals have made some ADORABLE makes using it for Girly cards too, so be sure to check out the blog here to see them all!

I used DP from Recollections and paper-pieced the Cowboy boots and fussy cut them out. Added a little White Gelly roll pen for some added "pop"...that's man code for "Bling". hehehe. I adhered it to a circle die cut that I used Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed Distress Inks on so they boots would stand out. For the Cowboy hat, I stamped the image with Walnut Stain Distress Ink onto watercolor paper I applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink onto and spritzed with water to get a weathered and worn look. I watercolored the band of the hat with some more Walnut Stain. I love Two Paper Diva stamps because you can bend and manipulate the stamps to curve like I did to apply the sentiment onto the circle. ;o)



Some twine, enamel dots and a Bingo Card from my stash finished off the card to keep to the masculine feel of the card. 

and here's the inside of my card using the same design as the front:

Because I was having so much fun with this set and already had my Distress Inks, I made another card to share with you...I know, I know...awesome right? LOL


Using Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Squeezed Lemonade and Walnut Stain Distress Inks on Watercolor paper with the Ranger Mini Blending Tool, I created the base of my card and added some water droplets for added texture. Then I used an old Stampin' Up spot Stamp in Walnut Stain to create some added texture to my base. Stamped the cool "Howdy" sentiment and cowboy boots onto my card as I think it makes another fun Masculine card that could be used for any occasion. 

and here's the inside using the Cowboy Hat and another fun sentiment from the set:

Please stop by next Friday for another fun Make using this month's New releases...it's "DREAMY" ;o)

a2z Scrapbooking Supplies~ Sew Stylish!

Hi crafty friends, I'm here with a little vintage make I made for
https://a2zscrapbookingblog.com/


using digital images from  Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 
and Hero Arts Sew Crafty DK027. I wanted to show you how to dress up your digital Images with a little distressing and some embellies from your stash. 
 
I used  images from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 and Hero Arts Sew Crafty DK027 Digital sets. These sets are both jam packed with crafty goodness! So much to use and work with. 

I printed the Stylish Ladies from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016  set in Sepia onto white cardstock and trimmed around the image and distressed the edges using the Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool and then inking the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I adhered this to a piece of scrap from my stash that looked like fabric to me and distress the edges of that too. Both pieces were mounted onto Kraft cardstock cut to 4.24x5.5' and made into a top fold card. 


I then used a Chipboard Dressform I had in my stash and covered it in Gesso and then brushed on some "Scarab Beetle" Twinkling H20's which lends a vintage feel and color to it. Some Ivory Mesh and Rose Ribbon and gold pearls from my stash finish it off.

Next I printed the a sentiment to tie my theme all together from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 set and mounted inked the edges with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I printed and cut out a spool of thread from the Hero Arts Sew Crafty DK027 set which I colored in with my Spectrum Noir Markers.

There you have it, a shabby chic card made using Hero Arts Digital Images, a little distressing and some embellies from your stash!

I colored the "Spotlight" piece that I die cut with a heart die and highlighted the image with Spectrum Noir Markers

Mounted it onto the card with 3D Foam Tape.

Faery Ink~ Watercoloring with Tottie Breezy Fae!

Good Morning Crafty Friends, I'm here to share a card I created for

using the newly released Tottie Breezy Fae. How cute is she??? 
I wanted to practice my watercoloring using my Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.


I printed her onto some Strathmore Watercolor 9x12 sheets and colored her with the Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and Tim Holtz Water Brush and fussy cut her out and mounted her with 3D Foam Dots. I used DP from stash and a  Hero Arts "Hope Your Day Shines" (Retired) sentiment in Blazing Red Staz On ink. Finished with some buttons and twine.


Here's a closer look at the image- I learned to let your image DRY after printing before watercoloring...but all in all not too bad. :o)

I hope I've inspired you today to get crafty and try some watercoloring! Don't forget we also have a fun "FLOWER POWER" challenge over on FB- Come play along with us! 


Happy Craftin'!

Two Paper Divas~Dream Big!

Happy Friday Crafty Friends, I'm back to share with you an lil' make I made for
http://www.twopaperdivas.com/shop/

Today I have a card using the newly released 
Dream Big and Rose Bouquet sets. I just love how simple, yet empowering this sentiment is!


I started with a 5.25'x5.25' piece of Watercolor paper and embossed the Rose Bouquet with White Embossing Powder. Then I went over it with Poppy Red Twinkling H20's and spritzed with water til I had the desired effect I wanted. 


I embossed the  Dream Big sentiment with Black and Red Embossing powders and then layered it onto a Spellbinders Lacy Circles die cut on metallic black CS with some 3D Foam Pads. Added some Black Silk Ribbon and bling button from my stash to tie it all together..no pun intended. lol!

a2z Scrapbooking Supplies~ Thank you Wreath!

Hi crafty friends, I'm here with a little Spring Wreath I made for
https://a2zscrapbookingblog.com/

In keeping with our Watercolor Challenge this month, I turned a Christmas Wreath into a Spring Thank You card!

I used CL907 Layering Wreath and used the flowers in the set to make it a Spring Wreath! The matching dies are on sale here in the shop!

I started by spritzing some Dylusions Spray in Pure Sunshine onto Mixed Media Cardstock. Once that was dry, I stamped the wreath using the green from AF324 Kelly's Outdoor Inks Set  and Hero Arts Lime Green. Then I stamped the flowers from the set using the Pink and Blue from  AF324 Kelly's Outdoor Inks Set andHero Arts Grape Juice.I finished with the bow in Hero Arts Red Royal, because what's a wreath without a bow???? hehe I added a sentiment from Hero Arts "Year Round Sentiments" (Retired). I glued the base down onto some Orange Recollections Cardstock.

There, a fun and vibrant Thank you card....you can never have too many of those. ;o)
