MC Dec/14 - Gold Leaf Thanks

I did this card on Monday and haven't had a chance to upload it. Sigh!! My quilling group celebrated my 65th BD on Wednesday (which is really only on the 21st...but who says I can't celebrate early). I'm celebrating again at work on Wednesday coming and then again on Sunday. Yes!!!

Anyway I was in a mood to do a bit of gold leafing... it's been a while since I've done any and I sure could use a bit of practice. i tried this time using the Sticky embossing powder as the adhesive. Was OK but nothing to write home to mother about...

Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). Stamped the leaf borders with Versamark and embossed the top section with Rangers Sticky embossing powder and the bottom one with Stampendous "Stamp n Bond"). Although the Stampendous one let the leaf stick more, it was also more pebbly. So really neither was to my liking.

Stamped the "Thanks Fill 'r Up" with Versafine Toffee and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Used a Quickie glue pen on the "T" tails and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Gold". Cut a piece of gold marbled paper for the body of the "T. Shadow outlined the letters with a taupe colored pencil.

Used my hard rubber mallet to selectively emboss the corners using a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Heritage set). Sponged some Distress "Weathered Wood" around the edges.

I'm using Quietfire Design sentiment stamp

And it fits for these challenges:
Inspiration Avenue  words that speak to you
Squigglefly  #4914  emboss or die cut
Facebook Card Making Challenge  silver & gold as main colors
TTCRD  #9 - 15 anything goes
Penny's Challenges  #207 anything but Xmas

MC Dec/14 - Quill Bells - Be Naughty & Snowmen Fall From Heaven cards


At our last quilling session one of our members was showing the group how to make bells. Even though I've done them before... I got in the act too, and wouldn't you know it, just as I needed to use them, they are lost on my desk somewhere. Sigh... so made a few more, this time I colored one side of my quill strip with a silver Krylon leafing pen. Dried, then did a very tight coil and shaped my bell, gluing the inside to keep the shape, then pressing down on the round shape to make it an oval shape. Added the little clappers. So cute...

I side folded my white card (5."w x 4.25"h). Used a Spellbinders die and my tan mat to dry emboss the frame design on the front. Hit the high points with Distress "Iced Spruce" direct to paper. I rarely use this pad, but really like it for this winter card.

Die cut some pine sprigs (Cheery Lynn) and while still in the larger piece of cardstock, hit it direct to paper with Distress "Forest Moss" then with a sponge and "Pine Needles". Removed from cardstock and adhered to card front. Adhered my quilled elements the pine sprig (that has glitter applied to the needles) and bells.

Tied a double loop bow from red ribbon and tied white wire thread around the center which I then wrapped around a bamboo skewer to create curled tendrils.

To see a pictorial tutorial on how to make this bow, click HERE

PS I had won a bunch of ribbon from a recent challenge on "Little Scrap Pieces", so have been using them. Is a really great selection...

Inked the quote stamp ("Be Naughty, save Santa") with Distress mini pads "Barn Door" and then here and there with "Black Soot", stamped and clear embossed.

On the inside stamped the Celtic Tree ("Celtic Christmas" 4pce set) one of the newest stamp sets from Quietfire Design using Versafine Toffee and embossing with Queen's Gold, then stamped the Celtic snowflakes using "Stormy Sky" and clear embossing. Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Click on any image to enlarge. Enjoy
Side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h). Adhered a marbled mulberry paper edge to edge.

Embossed a piece of white cards (Sheena Douglas "Snowflakes"). Since I don't usually clean my folders, this one still had some blue ink on it which got transferred to my cardstock... Used the side of a Distress pad "Stormy Sky" on the edges of the cardstock. Adhered to card front.

Had a leftover glittered snowflake  from a previous project that I had eCut. Adhered all my elements (quilled bells and glittered pine boughs, 2 loop fork bow - see instructions HERE)

Stamped the quote "Snowmen Fall From Heaven..." on white cardstock and cut close to stamping, inked edges with the blue pad, then layered to a blue scrapbook paper from my stash...  then on to card front.

On the inside stamped (Inkadinkado "Holiday Silhouettes" set) the snowman with Versafine Black Onxy and the snowflakes with the blue Distress pad. Stamped the sentiment "Let it Snow" small size (Quietfire Design) with the black. Sponged some blue "Tumbled Glass" around the edges.

Double Loop Fork Bow - tutorial

http://yogiemp.com/Crafts/Double%20Loop%20Fork%20Bow.html
One of our Quilling members showed  us how to make a double loop bow with this weaving technique on a fork. We had fun and were impressed by the neatness of the bows. For a fork it's best to use narrow ribbon, but I use a slightly wider ribbon most times, so decided to make it with my quilling comb. Works great too.

inside of card

I love the Impression Obsession snowflake, a beautiful design, but what a pain to die cut... even with my Crossover machine. I've also tried it with my Cuttlebug and my Big Shot Pro... Frustrating!!!

I did cut out a bunch. I also made myself an eCut file of the outside edge which I ran through my machine with the die and my tan mat to emboss the design. That worked well, then hit the high points direct to paper with Distress pads. I really liked the way those turned out... but that's for a later post.

These cards use the actual die cut elements... You can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any image. Enjoy.

Copperplate class with Renate Nov 2014


http://yogiemp.com/Calligraphy/CopperplateNov2014.html
http://yogiemp.com/Calligraphy/CopperplateNov2014.htmlLast weekend I took a 2 day Copperplate workshop taught by Renate Worthington, one of our Guild members. I LOVE Copperplate and taught myself using various exemplars I've come across and then using Joe Vitolo's free video lessons on my iPad. And with Renate's class I picked up a few more tips on making life easier... I really need to PRACTICE - Big Grin.

Here are a few samples from the class. Click on any image to see more samples and some descriptions etc. Enjoy.

MC Nov/14 - Mittens - Let it Snow

 I've been itching to do a card with mittens... Then there was the Card Maker Magazine challenge calling for flocking... a match made for heaven...

Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). Stamped the circle quote ("Snowflakes are Butterflies..." 6pce set) Using Distress "Festive Berry" and touching with "Mowed Lawn" then misting with water.

Used a snowflake embossing folder (Sheena Douglas) and my hard rubber mallet to emboss where I wanted... Sponged "Tumbled Glass" around the edges.


Hand cut a pair of mittens. I had some snowflake release papers on my desk from a previous project, so used one of them as a mask and sponged over it with "Worn Lipstick". Applied Quickie Glue in the snowflake and sprinkled with glitter (eCraft Designs "Warm Diamonds"). Trimmed a piece of Sookwang tape for the cuff and applied white flocking. Tied a couple bows with a burgundy toned narrow ribbon and adhered to each mitten cuff, then adhered a ribbon linking both. Adhered to card front.

On the inside, stamped the "Merry Christmas" Snowflakes (2 pce set) using "Salty Ocean" & misting with water. Stamped the "Let it Snow" with "Chipped Sapphire" also misting with water. Sponged some blue around the edges.

MC Nov/14 - Shadow Box - Xmas Joy


Suzanne from Quietfire Design came up with a lovely shadow box decorative piece (available on the Silhouette online store HERE) and I wanted to make one... It is so versatile. (I had an added detail the little snail on the right hand corner... and this JOY word is just some letters)

I eCut, scored, colored, stamped and assembled it. Love the way it turned out... (size:4"w x 5"h x 3/4"D)

I used Distress "Festive Berry", "Forest Moss" for the outside frame details and side edges, clear embossed the frame details.

On the inside I used "Tumbled Glass". Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx.

The word "JOY" was inked in red and Sticky embossing powder applied, heat activated and Ritz micro fine glitter (Regal Red) sprinkled on.

Snowflakes are Martha Stewart punched elements (although there are snowflakes available in the Silhouette file). Also embossed with Sticky embossing powder and sprinkled with Glitter "Crystal Snow" and then some Stickles "Star Dust" glitter.

The deer was sponged with "Antique Linen" and then with a touch of "Vintage Photo".

MC Nov/14 - Merry Xmas Tree - Textured Words & A Smile is the Best cards



and here are the 2 smaller versions of the card I posted yesterday... I mentioned yesterday that I came across a calligraphic xmas tree that I really liked and decided to try to create it... I used a 1.5mm parallel pen and Sumi ink - I would have used a large pen nib... but my other pens seemed to be dried up, so just grabbed whichever worked... I guess I should do a bit of cleaning and filling up. sigh!!

Both cards are 4.2"w x 5.5"h side folded white cardsotck.

On the blue one I added faux stitching using a Sharpie pen. Added balls with a Pilot G-Tec red pen and dots with a Sharpie. Then added some small rhinestones. Layered it on to a dark blue cardstock then to my white card.

On the inside stamped the wreath (Stubby Stampers) using Distress Mini pads, misting with water. Stamped the "Textured Holiday Words" (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Black Onyx.

On the green card, used Prisma colored pencils to add some color in the corners. Sponged the edges with a dirty green sponge, layered it to a Bazzill monochroamtic green textured cardstock, then to my main card. Added gel stickers as ornaments and tied a small narrow ribbon bow.

On the inside stamped the pinecone branch (Stubby Stampers) with Distress, misting with water. The quote (Quietfire Design "A Smile is the Best") with the black.

MC Nov/14 - Merry Xmas Tree - It's Beginning to Look

I came across a calligraphic xmas tree that I really liked and decided to try to create it... I used a 1.5mm parallel pen and Sumi ink - I would have used a large pen nib... but my other pens seemed to be dried up, so just grabbed whichever worked... I guess I should do a bit of cleaning and filling up. sigh!!

I changed a couple letters and made it narrower, but basically it's very similar. I then scanned it and printed it out on 110# white cardstock. I hate the way my printer prints which is why I hate doing digis... so went over each letter with my pen to get rid of those little dots and missed ink areas... Then I decorated.

On this one (I made 2 smaller versions coming soon...) I used an HB pencil and paper stump to add shading. Sponged around the edges with a dirty red sponge. Used a Quickie glue pen to make the glittered ball ornaments adding Stickles "Star Dust" glitter and then a Pilot G-Tec red pen.

Adhered it to a red textured cardstock and then zig-zag stitched around the edges. Punched a hole and added a silver brad star then adhered it to my side folded card front (5"w x 7"h).

On the inside: embossed the design onto a separate piece of white cardstock using Cuttlebug "Lace Tree". Note: I cut the embossing folder apart so that I could angle it here and there, then used my trusty hard rubber mallet to make the impression. Sponged the red and then some brown all over. Adhered to inside of card.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design - It's Beginning to Look..." 4pce set) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Stamped the Santa ornament (Flourishes) using the black and colored with Prisma colored pencils. Added a narrow red ribbon as a hanger. As a final touch added the lace trim on the left edge making it more vintage type card.
