WSW14 Uncorked

 

WSW14 Uncorked

 

Challenge Dates :

Saturday, June 14 - Monday, June23

 

Challenge :

Stamp on a wine cork or similar bottle cork to make a 3D stamped project.  No flat sheet cork.
You must make a finished project that includes stamping, for example a finished fan pull ready to hang.  If you make the
pendants or sliced magnets,  please make at least 3 to satisfy this challenge and be entered for a RAK.

Here are a few examples:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I found these pretty pendants, or charms on Pinterest.  There is an excellent tutorial on the Fiskars site. These would also make cute wine glass charms or magnets.

 

 

Or, you might want to make a wine cork key chain following the super tutorial on ArtsyVaVa's blog (thank you for permission to share!) 

Or how about a Christmas ornament or fan pull?  

Here is a youtube video for wine cork magnets.  Please remember that for this challenge you must stamp on your cork.

I'm sure you can find lots more cork projects on Pinterest or Google.  I would have included more here, but I didn't want to post pictures of items people have for sale. 

 

Tips:

1.  I found the easiest way to cut cork was a big kitchen knife as shown in the magnet video.  I sharpened my knife first and it worked very well.  Some use an exacto and a rocking motion, so that's an option.  (I like the large kitchen knife)

2.  Sand.  I used a Tim Holtz sanding block to sand the surface of my cork disks, wiped away dust and painted with acrylic glaze.  My full size cork had so much printing on it that I didn't think my stamping would show up so I sanded it off.  Now I have a clean cork surface to work on.  Good for stamping, maybe not if you want a momento of a special occasion bottle of wine.

3.  Experiment with paints, stains and inks.  I used Silks acrylic glaze and decided I needed two coats.  I also tried Ink Tintz (similar to Tim Holtz Distress Stain).

4.  Plastic cork might work, I had no trouble slicing it .... but the hole from the corkscrew shows.  Natural cork is self-healing, no hole.  I prefer you use real cork, however if artificial wine cork is all you have, you might consider covering the hole with a gem or some other embellishment.

5.  Screw eyes.  I couldn't find one, so I used a jewelry eye pin.  Use what you have.  A screw eye would probably be easier.  I poked a hole in the cork with a piercing tool, cut my eye pin to approx. radius of my cork, stuck the pin in some glue and then inserted in to my pre-poked hole.  It feels pretty sturdy, but I haven't worn my pendant yet.

 

I'm still working on my own samples, but I think you can get the idea from the examples above.  I'll update the blog when I get a chance.  Please share your experiences with this challenge on the WSW14 Uncorked discussion thread in the Stamping Forum

 

Nitty Gritty :

You must upload a picture and brief description of your stamped cork project to the twopeas stamping gallery being sure to check the challenge box for WSW14 Uncorked. Then reply to the WSW14 Uncorked discussion thread in the Stamping Forum with a link to your gallery post.

You may combine challenges as long as the requirements for all are met and as other challenge hosts allow.

There will be a small RAK for a random name drawn from all entries.

I hope you have fun!  I can't wait to see what you create!

WF14 Mask Your Stamp

Winterfest 2014

Saturday, February 8  -  Monday, February 17

 

 Mask Your Stamp

 

This is a form of masking that some of you may not have tried yet.  It is really useful!  In this case we are masking our
stamp to keep portions of it from getting inked, rather than masking our paper, as has been discussed quite a bit on
the stamping forum.

 

Object : Stamp just a portion of an image or sentiment.

 

Rules :

1.  Make a project that uses just a portion of a stamp, using the technique of masking your stamp.  I prefer you mask a background or image stamp rather than a text only sentiment stamp for this challenge. If you want an extra challenge, why not both an image and a sentiment? (not required)

2.  Upload a picture of your project and also a picture of the full stamp so we can see what you masked.

3.  Check the challenge box for this challenge "WF14 Mask Your Stamp" when you upload it to the stamping gallery.

4.  Copy the URL from the gallery and add a link to your project in the discussion thread on the stamping forum.

5.  You may combine this with other challenges.


 

Here are 2 examples to illustrate why you might want to mask your stamp.

Example 1:

Say I want to use just a portion of a background stamp.  Shari Carrol shows one way to do that in her video for Hero Arts.  She uses a small ink pad to ink just a few stripes from a striped background.  But what if I don't own any small ink pads, or as SU calls them "ink spots"?  Or what if the details on my stamp are too close together to be avoided by an ink spot?  By using masking tape, washi tape, or other low tack tape, I can mask off the parts of the stamp I don't want to use, tucking the tape in and around tiny details.

Stampendous - Music Score   The stamp  Mask the unwanted portions by taping over with masking tape or washi tape. Ink 

Ok.  You've masked (I ran out of masking tape so I used gray washi tape on the bottom section).  You've inked.  Now STOP!

Do not pass GO until you remove the tape!

 

Now you can stamp it to paper.

  TaDa!

 

If you forget to remove the inky tape?  This is what you get! That is not the look we are going for   !  Not naming any names ... but it happens!

Example 2:

Here I wanted to use the sentiment, but it didn't fit in my stamped star so I masked out the scalloped circle border.

  

 

(I used a stamp positioner to help put the sentiment in the star.)

 

Now, could we have done this by masking the paper?  Well, maybe.  However in the music script example, I would have had to be very precise to get just a few lines of music in the unmasked area of my card.  Any slip, and you miss a pizzicato or a slur!  In the case of the star?  I think it would be difficult. 

In addition, just think of the custom sentiments you can create.  You can mask away "birthday" in a "Happy Birthday" stamp and make it say "Happy" anything.  You can combine fonts and type sizes by using the "happy" from one stamp and the "birthday" from another.  What if you are not a fan of the phrase "Season's Greetings"?  You can just say "Greetings" or you can take the "Christmas" from another stamp and make your own phrase "Christmas Greetings".  

Go take another look at your stamps; images and sentiments, and see what you can create!

There will be a random drawing from all qualifying entries for a small RAK.

SOF13 How do you feel?

Stamptoberfest

Challenge Dates : Saturday, October 12, 2013 - Monday, October 21, 2013

 

SOF13 How do you feel ...

about Felt?

 

I was struggling this year to come up with a challenge.  In 2009 I had thought of felt, but that idea was already taken … so I’m bringing it back this year!  

Challenge :  Use felt somehow, some way on a stamped card, ATC or any new project of your choice.  You can stamp on the felt, diecut it, emboss it … however you want to use it.   Your project must include felt and some stamping/inking.

Rules :  Your project must include stamping and felt. 

              It must be new for SOF13. 

              You can combine it with other challenges that allow combining.

Link it up :  Please check “SOF13 How do you feel?” in the member challenge box when you upload your project to the twopeas gallery.  That way your entry will show up here at the bottom of my blog.  Then go to the discussion thread in the stamping forum and give us the link to your project.  Please share how you used felt in your gallery post and/or discussion thread post.

If you need some inspiration … here is the link to Stampingmathilda’s 2009 challenge blog where you can see her samples as well as the projects of those who participated.

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/userblogpost.asp?id=43007

Thanks for playing!  I will draw a name from a hat (your name goes in once for each project you submit) and mail you a RAK.  Non USA addresses are not a problem.

WSW13 Read All About It!

WSW13 Read all about it!

Challenge Dates: Saturday, June 8 through Monday, June 17

 

I've been admiring projects that involve stamped images over text paper, and I'd like to see and do more!

 

The challenge :  Stamp on text


The twist : to double your chances in the RAK drawing, stamp your text first, then stamp an image over it.


Combining challenges : ok by me

 

Requirements :
1.  Stamp an image over a text background.  Your text can be ready made (newspaper, dictionary, printed paper) or, for extra credit,
 self-created (use any text stamps you may have, alpha stamps, a greeting repeated multiple times to create an area
of text ...be creative.)

2. Upload your new, finished project (card, ATC, tag, scrapbook layout, home decor ...) to the two peas stamping gallery and check the box for this member challenge.
     Describe your project and the source of your text.  Include "WSW13" and "Read" in your upload title

3.  Provide a link to your gallery post on the discussion thread in the Stamping Forum.

4.  Comment on at least three other "WSW13 Read" challenge entries.

I put a sample card in the gallery.  And here is the art journal page that partially inspired this challenge.

Have fun!  Happy WSW13!

Challenge

WF13 Layered Stencil, Mask, Stamp

 

WF13 Layered Stencil, Mask, Stamp

Saturday, February 9th - Sunday, February 17th

 

And the winner is : djc (Daria)!! Congratulations!

 

This challenge is to use a mask, a stencil and at least one stamp.  The title says "layered" but you will end up with a single layer.  You can embellish it if you want (gems, glitter, etc) but keep it basically a single layer.  Of course if you want to mount it to a card, go ahead and mount it however you want, kwim?

Your creation must be inside a shape.  Mask off a shape, and create inside of it, and use another mask on the inside.  So your first step will be to make a mortise mask.  For this challenge it can be stamped or a reverse die cut, or taped off.  

Daniel gave a good description of a mortise mask in his masking thread here.

You will understand better after watching the video that inspired this challenge.
Heidi Swapp's video (used with permission, thank you!).

 

The object of this challenge :

1.  Create a mortise mask
2. Mask, stencil and stamp inside it.  (Heidi didn't mask inside, but I would like you to try it.  Lay down a mask, and then stencil over it.)  You do not have to use spray ink, use what you have.

3.You can add stamping after you remove the mortise mask (as Heidi did), or not, it's up to you.

 

The rules

1.  This challenge can be combined with any other WF13 challenges except for stencil and masking challenges.
2.  Your project does not have to be a card, or even a finished object.  Mine is in a technique journal for now.
3.  Your project must be new,  uploaded to the twopeas stamping gallery with this challenge box checked, and linked to the discussion thread in the stamping forum.  Please share a few comments in your thread post or gallery post.

 

Here is my sample with a description in the stamping gallery.  It was done in a Canson 140lb watercolor notebook.  

Here is the link to the discussion thread on the stamping forum.

I hope you have fun!
Any questions?  Just ask me in the discussion thread or send a peamail.

Note : Heidi Swapp's video was part of an internet event hosted by Nathalie Kalbach called Creative JumpStart 2013.

Challenge

SOF12 Stamp a Tangle

Stamptoberfest 2012 is here!

October 13, 2012 - October 21, 2012

 

 




Challenge : Look at the patterns in your stamps, all of them, not just background stamps and make a stamped "zentangle".  You can make it in a traditional zentangle tile size, generally 3 1/2 inch square on watercolor paper  (I'm not concerned about what paper you use) or  stamp your tangles (in our case stamped patterns) inside sections of a stamped image.

Rules :

1.   At least one of your patterns has to come from a non-background stamp.  In my sample you will see I used the pattern on the back of a bug and the leaves of a tree.
2.  All tangles must be stamped (not hand drawn).
3.  You don't have to make it in to a finished card, just a finished tile or image.  If you do turn it in to a card or another item I will enter your name twice in the drawing for a RAK.
4.  Your gallery post must include two photos, the first being the tangled tile or image, the second being a photo of the stamps used to create it.  If you incorporated it in to a finished project, add a photo of that too.
5.  Upload your entry to the stamping gallery and check the box for SOF12 Stamp a Tangle.  Then get the URL from your gallery post and leave a link to it in the discussion thread on the stamping forum.

That's it!  I hope you'll see your stamps in a whole new light!

I'm sorry to send you to another site, but I had trouble figuring out how to pre-load my tutorial photos to twopeas without you seeing them before the challenge started.

So, please go to my blog (old, but I resurrected it for SOF12!) to see a picture tutorial of what I'm asking you to do.

If you are not familiar with authentic zentangle, please visit Rick and Maria Thomas' site at
  www.zentangle.com.

If you can combine this with other challenges, more power to you!

WSW12 Hangover Zentangle Challenge

WSW12 Hangover Zentangle Challenge

June 19, 2012 to June 24, 2012

 

Challenge : Use zentangle to fill in a stamped image (either part of the image or all of it).                    Create a new finished card/ATC/or project using your newly tangled image.

Rules :

1. Use at least one "official" zentangle pattern from this website by
Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, www.zentangle.com    You'll find videos for two of the patterns I used, Betweed, and Mooka under the "Video" link on the website.

2. Shade your patterns using pencil and a blending stump, or your finger :)  That works too! Shading makes such a big difference.  It adds a lot of dimension, and it isn't hard to do.

3. When you upload your project to the gallery make sure to:

a.  Tell us about the stamp you used, an untangled image would be nice, but not mandatory

b.  Give the names of the zentangle patterns used if at all possible, so we can find out how to draw the pattern.  Credit the person who came up with the pattern if you are able.

c.  Check the challenge box "WSW12 Hangover Zentangle" and link your gallery post to the discussion thread in the Stamping Forum.

I hope you have fun with this!  Maybe a little quiet, focused time with zentangle will help your "Hangover" week laugh

Sample : You can see my sample with description, in the stamping gallery.



Personal note, not required reading for the challenge :)

I missed WSW12 as we were in Colorado celebrating my daughter's graduation from Univ. of Denver.
She can now proudly add MSW after her name as she earned her Masters in Social Work.  She's already working full time for Jefferson County in Family Assessment Response (? I think that is what her dept. is called?).  She also earned a certificate for Animal Assisted Therapy and can't wait to adopt a dog to train and use with her families!  (Some of you may remember, this is the same daughter who served 2 years in the Peace Corps in Mali, West Africa. She's back in the states!  Hooray!)  My husband and I also celebrated our 30th anniversary while we were in Colorado with a trip to Estes Park to hike the Rockies.  We put over 30 miles on our hiking boots (not all at once thank goodness)!  We capped off our stay with a trip down the alpine slide at Heritage Square amusement park in Golden.  Our first date was a trip to the alpine slide at Song Mountain in Tully, NY!    Just had to re-enact our date!  Oh, and while we were gone, we became grandparents to a new puppy in the family!  Our 2nd daughter adopted an 8 week old dachshund mix.  So cute, though many people think he has more german shepard in him than dachshund!  Time will tell!

I've been meaning to do this, so now I will finally do it!   I've rinsed the grounds off a filter and saved it, but that's as far as I got.

Let's see what you can do with a used coffee filter.

Not a coffee drinker?  If it's tea you drink, carefully empty the contents of your used tea bag and stamp on that!

I just made iced tea in a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Pot.   I'm saving the coffee filter that held the loose tea.  If you have an Iced Tea Pot, that filter is eligible for this challenge.

The Challenge :

 

 

House of Refuge Raffle QuiltAfrican DancerAfrican Dancer border close upWhite PineappleQuilt Display
For a slightly better view you can look at these quilt pictures on my FLICKR account.

 

Make a project, card or other creation, inspired by quilts.  You can use the pictures provided as inspiration or just go with the general theme of quilts; traditional quilts, crazy quilts, contemporary ... anything goes.  Techniques and tools are unlimited, inking and stamping, punching, piecing, piercing, templates ...

Have fun with it!


1. Your project must contain some traditional stamping (as opposed to digi), even if it is just a sentiment.

2. Don't forget to check the box for this challenge, WF11 Inspired by Quilts, when you upload a picture of your project to the gallery.

3. Please add a message and a link to your gallery post in the discussion thread in the Stamping Forum.

4. You may submit projects used for multiple challenges as long as they are newly created for Winterfest.

 

The Samples:

 

My friend, Barb, and I went to a quilt show a few weeks ago.  The quilts were made by the Martin County Quilters and displayed at the House of Refuge.  A few days after our outing, I saw this punch tutorial by Becca at www.amazingpapergrace.com (you can also check out part 2 and part 3 of the tutorial).  Even though I didn't have the same type of punches, the tutorials and the quilt show inspired these cards.

 

You can click on the pictures to go to the gallery posts describing these samples.

Sample 1

 

 

Sample 2

Here is the punch I used to make the quilt blocks.  I experimented with the size of the white squares to get a punched design I liked.  I cut the purple squares to fit the slots. EK Success Wrought Iron Corner Slot punchEK Success Wrought Iron punched corner
