Guest TTCRD July - Luggage Easel - Paris - Love Where You're At

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/GuestTTCRDJuky_LuggageEasel_Paris_LoveWhereYou'reAt.html


After winning on the TTCRD blog (June 14 - 20) I was asked to be a guest designer, which I accepted. I was able to choose a digi design from "Dr Digi House of Stamps" and choose the "Bits n Bobs - Luggage" Image.

I enlarged it, cut out and colored with colored pencils, then used various embossing folders as texture plates and ran a colored pencil over the high points to add textural marks. (wear and tear on the vintage luggage... BIG GRIN)

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCJuly16_EaselSunriseLily_ECDHappyBirthday_FriendshipIsn'tABigThing.html
I was in a mood to play with the Sunrise Lily flowers from Heartfelt Creations... (stamp & die set) The flowers on the front are very 3D, standing over 1/2" h... the ones on the floor are a lot less high and can almost lay flat. Love the way it turned out. The purple front piece uses one of Tim's techniques that I really love doing "Faux Marble" using acrylic daubers including Picket Fence.

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image. Enjoy

MC July/16 - Daisy Rosettes - Sunflower - You Make Me Smile

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCJuly16_DaisyRosettes_Sunflower_YouMakeMeSmile.html
I'm doing a DT spot on the Quietfire Digital blog today. Suzanne from Quietfire Design came out with a bunch of rosette electronic cut files (eCut) available on the Silhouette onLine store and I had to use the daisy one... which I turned in to a "Sunflower". I was in a mood for something sunny since we've had a bit of dismal type weather. At least it's cool at night to sleep. Usually this time of year I need the fans going...

Anyway, I'm using the "Daisy Rosette" & the "Sunflower" eCut files.

Tim's Wk 6 - Stencil Techniques - Inpiration - Laugh - Memories tags



Absolutely loved the refresher for the stencil techniques. So many http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/Tim'sWk6_StencilTags-Memories-Laugh-Inspiration.htmlgood ideas. There are so many techniques out there you keep forgetting so many of them...

This week's challenge was to use 2 or more stencil techniques on one tag or card...

The first tag I created using the Acrylic Dauber monoprint. The 2nd tag I did a monoprint using Distress pads, and for the 3rd tag I used a 2nd generation print from that same Distress pad stencil with lots more water... Then I added various techniques to each tag.

MC June/16 - July 1 - Enjoy Your Day

So Canada Day is around the corner... July 1st - and I thought I'd use one of the newest Silhouette files from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store HERE to celebrate the occasion.

Real simply made. Opened the file on my mat and increased the size to 5"h and cut from white cardstock. Colored and outlined portions of it using a Distress marker "Festive Berries"

Side folded a white card 4.25"w x 5.5"h. Adhered a piece of 2.5"w Sookwang tape to the center of the card, then adhered my cut file. Created some release paper masks for the edges of the #1 and carefully sprinkled a minute amount of Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Regal Red", burnished. Then sprinkled the rest of the card with Stickles dry glitter "Star Dust".

Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx and pressed down solidly with my stamp to get a good impression.

Voila. It's now ready to mail to one of my Canadian Friends...

PS Suzanne also created some US files for the 4th of July. A Lantern & July Motif;

I'm also using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design "Twirl and Enjoy" 3pce set

And it fits for this challenge:
Craftin Desert Divas  red/white & blue (I omitted the blue since I'm Canadian...)

http://yogiemp.com/NittyGritty/THChemistry101/TH101_ChallengeWeek3_Days8-9_BFly.htmlI combined the 2 techniques for this weeks lesson... I'm not enamored of painting my stamps with acrylics, but must admit it gives a nice result. Just have to make sure the stamp gets cleaned immediately...

Love Tim's giant layered butterfly and inking the embossing folder with the acrylic dauber gave a nice result. And the perfect pearls sprayed on in the negative spaces.
