She was surrounded by BEAUTY

Hello there, it's Eva here today.  I have some creations to share with you using the newest Christine Adolph line, the Sakura.  This is one beautiful line.  Full of lively colors and gorgeous designs.  Hope you find these in the stores very soon.

I created an altered project for my first item using the Aaron Bare Elements box, which is perfect, as you can tuck so many things inside, in my case cards.  I also used Luminarte Twinkling H2O's to paint my project and some acrylic paint.

She was surrounded
 
I first Mod podged my box and added old dress pattern paper just to layer all my painting and papers on.  Then I painted her face and feet with acrylic paint and hand cut her dress out of the Sakura papers.  Painted everywhere with the Twinkling H2O's including the My Favorite Things Die-namics doily.  I handcut some of the pretty branches from the patterend paper and just kept layering it.  I also did a little stamping, for which I used Ippity stamps by Unity Stamp Co.  You can see on this picture some of the layering I added.

She was surrounded1
I added some of the die cut lanterns and in her hair some of the small diecut flowers, which were just perfect size. As a final touch I typed up my sentiment using a distressed font and after I printed it out I painted it in with more pretty Twinkling H2O's.  Hope you like it.

My next project is a card made with the same Sakura line once again.  I used both the papers and the diecuts, in this case the label, which I stamped Samantha Walker's Unity Stamp Co. stamp sentiment on, as it just fit the image perfect.

How Sweet
I used some pretty May Arts ribbon and I paired up a Petaloo flower with Marah Johnson's metal flower brads

List of items I used to create these projects:

Christine Adolph Sakura papers and die cuts (look for them in your local stores)

Twinkling H2O's in the following colors:

Hot Cinnamon #26375

Ginger Peach #26375

Poppy #26376

Guatemalan Green #26378

Olive Wine #26378

Nutmeg #26378

Playful Peony #26369

Pomegranite #26369

Time To Relax

Hey there, it's Tanisha Long here.  I created this beautiful altered Bare Elements Clock using the lovely IOD Beach Cottage collection.  I adore the soft colors and subtle patterns of this line. 

The beach is one of my favorite places to visit so I wanted to add lots of beach elements to the clock starting with the Mermaid paper.  I made it the highlight of this project and then adhered a few die cuts with pop dots to add dimension (making certain not to interfere with the movement of the clock hands).

Alteredclock

Before adding the papers, I painted the edges of the clock with Autumn Leaf Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist.

I also added some twine...

and mesh, layered shells and starfish to add to the nautical feel of the project.

I can not wait to hang this in my craft room!!

Forest Critters

Hi Guys....Nicole here back again today to share another layout I made using the super cute Helen Dardik "Forest Critters" collection and a few fun extras.  Check out the big die cut tree on this layout made using Real Wood and a Creative Cafe felt panel:

IMG_0634

I was able to run the Real Wood sheet through my Cricut with a regular blade using the multi cut option.  then, I simply traced the tree top onto the back of a felt panel, cut it out, and adhered it over the top of the tree...easy peasy and adorable!

Passion for Fashion!!

Hi! Carrie here. I just adore our Melange 'Passion for Fashion' line of papers and embellishments! One of the techniques I'm sharing today is one of my all time favorite things to do on layouts. I'll jump right in and give you the scoop on how to do my favorite technique.

First, I took two sheets of the Dress Form papers.   
21828l 
2) Next, I cut out the dress form image from 1 of the sheets of paper. 

3) Next, I distressed the edges to the cut out dress form, adhered 3D foam adhesive on the back of the dress form, and 'stacked' it directly on top of the dress form image on the second piece of paper. {the whole, uncut paper} I embellished the popped up dress form with a beautiful Petaloo flower to give it a final feminine touch.

Such a simple technique, yet the results add great dimension and visual appeal to the finished layout.

toes in the sand with luminarte

IMG_0295

by Dt member, Jenn Shurkus

Have you guys had enough with Luminarte yet!? I hope not!! 
When I first saw the new stencils from Creative Imaginations, I immediately started to design this layout in my head...


I started with a 12x12 narratives notebook pattern paper
I used the seaweed stencil and started stenciling it along the bottom with kiwi and olive vine. I wasnt worried when the image seeped out of the stencil line, because i new this was going to end up being an artsy layout in the end.
On a separate piece of watercolor paper, I stenciled a few pieces of seaweed, and then stamped over it with a Hero Art definition background. I cut the individual pieces of seaweed out, and edge distressed them. I then set them aside for later.

When I finished the seaweed, I took Mediterranean Color Concentrate on my Ranger Craft sheet, and added water to dilute it a bit, I then did a wash over the whole background, even over the seaweed. This resulted with the seaweed bleeding a bit, but I liked this, made it seem like it was underwater.

Then a flicked some water droplets on the layout here and there. Let is set a minute or so, and then blotted with a paper towel. These end up looking as white as the paper.


On another piece of watercolor paper I stenciled the mermaid. I had a lot of fun with her, taking time to shade her hair, adding texture to her tail with a paper towel etc. I x-acted her out and set her aside. 

I just got some prints in the mail from Hipstamatic (a camera iphone app) and love this pic of my toes in the sand from last summer.
I matted it with some burlap mesh, I have had in my stash forever, using foam tape to add definition.

For the title I used some foam thickers, putting them on my Craft Mat first and adding some medditeranean color to them. I used glossy accents to adhere them to the layout, and some of the color pooled and stained the paper underneath... I LOVE how it turned out! The little words are done with some paper Making Memories letters that I added egyptian gold to.

Then I attached the pieces of seaweed, with foam tape so they were popped up, I did the same with the mermaid.
For final touches I added glossy accents to some of the white water droplets, to make them look shiny and wet. And I added some rock candy Distress stickles to the popped up seaweed.

I know it all sounds like a lot, but when I scrapbook I as much enjoy the process as getting a layout done. I love trying new techniques, and the play time i get at my crafty table!

Blog Hop: Memory Box & Luminarte INSPIRATION!

IMG_0323

Hello everyone! Are you enjoying this weeks SUPER creative posts from Creative Imaginations and Memory Box's Design Team Members? We hope so!!

love card: For this card I stamped The heart/bird collage image on watercolor paper with black versafine ink. Then I spritzed the paper heavily with water. Taking my paintbrush and filling it with color from the twinkling H2O pots, I touched the brush to the wet image. You will see the color move and spread across the wet area. Then I heat set the layer. I feel this brings out the shimmer in the Twinkling H2O's and lets you continue to layer. I repeated this step several times, wetting the paper again, adding color and heat setting, until i got it to look the way I wanted. 
Flick some water onto the image and let set for a couple minutes, then blot with a paper towel. This will lighten and give you water droplets on your image. I then tore around the heart and using the Egyptian Gold Luminarte Dauber, I inked the edges of the heart.

For my background:
Working on my Ranger Craft Sheet, I spritzed Egyptian Gold Radiant Rain directly on the mat. Then I "blotted" the cardstock into the pools, and puddles of shimmer. Heatset in between layers. I love when my craft sheet isn't totally clean and i pick up other colors as well ( see the purple splotch in the corner of the card?) I stamped the sentiment multiple times, not always reinking in between.  
(you can see where I did a similar background on the Valentine Day card here)

I then assembled the card with some ribbon and foam tape to add dimension.

enjoy! 
Jenn

Today is day 5 of our blog hop with Memory Box! Huge congratulations to:

I've been using Twinkling HH20's for a while and I love the results I get. Loved your idea to make the roses stand out and will have to try that tecnique. I'm always glad to see different ideas for the use of H20's!~ barbara lassiter

Hi!! Carrie here! Working with the Memory Box stamps was an absolute pleasure. Thank you Memory Box, for this awesome opportunity! I used my Twinkling H2O's on my 2 projects and I can tell you the H2O's are perfect for these stamps!

My 1st project: Faith, Hope, Love Framed Art {Alpha Background Memory Box stamp}

**I stamped the alpha stamp on a coordinating piece of pattern paper 3 times, then cut the 3 stamped images out and adhered them to my corrugated cardboard.

**I then stamped a couple more times on my scrap pieces of the same coordinating pattern paper. From the scrap paper stamped images, I hand cut out letters to spell 'faith', 'hope', and 'love'. I used 3D foam adhesive to adhere the words on top of the 3 alpha stamped images.

**I stamped the butterfly stamp onto some scrap canvas fabric.

**To add the stamped images to my acrylic decor, I simply cut around the stamped shape, adhered them to my project with Helmar 450 Quick Dry glue, and dolled them up with pearls. So very easy. LOVE these stamps!!

Shimmery Memory Box/Luminarte Cards!

Hey everyone, it's Jenn! I have 2 cards to share with you today. I really enjoyed playing with these Memory Box images.. they work SOOO well with Luminarte!

IMG_0326

hello card: For this card I stamped the bird image in black versafine ink on watercolor paper. I then painted it in with Twinkling H2O's. I kept them very wet, adding a lot of water and heat setting in between once i got an area to look how I wanted.
I wish you could see just how shimmery this image is. the Twinkling H2O's are fabulous for adding shimmer! I cut this image out and set aside. 
I made a watercolor washed background with the twinkling H2O's as well, and used that as the layer on my card. I used the tonic edge distresser on the edges as well.

For the sentiment I stuck the paper sticker letters (these happen to be by making memories) on my Ranger Craft sheet and painted color on them. I then used glossy accents to adhere them to the card. I did a little picture tutorial on this over on facebook the other night... you can see it here

The other layers i used foam tape to add dimension and depth.

IMG_0327


IMG_0319

thank you card: For this card I stamped the image in brown versafine ink, on watercolor paper. I then used my twinkling H2O's to paint the image. I love when you are working with watercolors, because you don't need to be concerned about staying in the lines ;) 

For the layered piece I did a watercolor wash of browns and yellows, similar to what I did for the card above, also using the edge distresser. 

I attached the sentiment strip, and then I wrapped some bakers twine around the image. Using foam tape on both layers I assembled the card.

Day 4! Stamping with Twinks and Memory Box

Today is Day four of our blog hop with Memory Box and another day means another winner!  Congratulations to Denise Bryant "Gorgeous samples! I love the gift ensemble and the pretty yellow card! Scrumptious color! Very spring-y and fresh! That fern print is one of my faves!"

Hi all, it's Alice with today's technigue on stamping with Twinkling H2Os.  Here's an example of what I used.

Twinks-Tech

LuminArteTwinking H2O's

Memory Box

Creative Imagination Brush

Creative Imagination water bottle

 

Stamping with Twinks:

1. Paint using the Twinks onto the stamps (you can use more than one color)

2. Stamp the image on to paper (I used cardstock paper)

3. Set it to dry using heat gun

 

Twinks-Tech2

You could also color in the stamped image as well just like my sample of the card I made.

AC-Memory-Box-Blog2

Another great idea is to stamp your image onto cardstock and then color it in with the Twinks.  Just like I did here with my card.  I also stamped the image with an ink pad as a matching background so that my colored stamped images pop.  It came out so cool...Love it!


AC-Memory-Box-Blog3

Well I hope you enjoyed my little quick and short technique and don't you just love these stamps from Memory Box?

Day 3: Memory Box & Luminarte Blog Hop

Hi Everone, Nicole here to share a fun little frame I made with an adorable Memory Box butterfly stamp and my Twinkling H20's:

IMG_0580

Supplies Used:

Instructions:

  • Cover the Desiree Frame with "Ocean Blue" patterned paper and sand the edges nice and flush.
  • Cut a strip of "Mermaid Noveau" patterned paper about 1 1/2" wide and add a scallop border with your favorite scallopy punch.  Now sand the edges white and adhere it under the photo opening.
  • Then it's time to make your pretty butterflies:
    • Stamp the butterfly twice onto white cardstock using Versamark ink.  Sprinkle black embossing powder over the stamped images and heat set.
    • Paint the butterflies from the body out toward the wings, painting the darkest blue first then blending to lightest.
    • Fussy cut your butterflies out, then add two pearls to each body.
  • Paint your white paper flower from the center out toward the petals, starting again with the darker green and blending to the lightest.
  • When everthing has dried, build your embellisment cluster below the bottom right corner of the photo opening beginning with the green painted flower.  Then, tuck the velet leaves unser the flower petals using glue dots. Before attaching the butterflies, curl the butterflies' wings around a pencil, then bend them inward toward the bodies.  Attach them to the frame(body only) with a strong liquid glue.
  • Tie a lenghth of tulle around the frame under the embellishment cluster and knot just under the butterflies.

IMG_0581

I just love that the finished project!  It looks like I worked on it for hours, when it was very quick and easy thanks to a beautiful stamp from Memory Box and some yummy, shimmery H20's!

Day Three: LuminArte & Memory Box - Simply IrRESISTable

Good morning!  Another day and another winner for our daily giveaway! Today's winner is: I'm going to love this week!! Awesome project!!Janet Zeppa

It's Tanisha here and today's post is all about the resist technique. I created projects using 2 different types of papers along with Memory Box Stamps to show you the varied looks you can get using Luminarte.

For this birthday set, I created my own patterned paper by stamping with embossing ink onto cardstock and then heat embossing with clear embossing powder.  I dipped a paint brush into Ginger Peach Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist and painted (instead of spraying) over the stamped images.  I dabbed a paper towel over the embossed images to pick up the excess mist and the result is a lovely stark contrast between the background color and the embossed flowers.

Cifriendbdayset

I also created matching patterned tissue paper by simply stamping with ink onto the paper.

040311 016

I used the same resist technique on this card.  This time, I used Mallard Green, Burnt Umber, and Yellow Rose twinkling H2Os on Glossy Paper and the result is a stunning watercolor look. 

See how the yellow varies at the top of the card?  That's actually the same color.   I just diluted the paint with more water to give the lighter effect.  Pretty cool, huh?

Supplies Used:

Creative Cafe Calendar

Hey everyone! It's Jenn here, sharing with you a fun card using Memory Box images and Luminarte paints... i just love playing with my Twinkling H2O's!

Wishing you the very best:
For this card I painted Luminarte Twinkling H2O's directly on the Memory Box fern stamp. Lightly mist with water and then stamped it on watercolor paper. I misted the stamp again (without reapplying any color) and stamped again, repeat again. With the 3 background ferns stamped, I wanted a bolder fern for the foreground. I chose a darker green H2O and painted it directly onto the stamp again, lightly misted it with water and stamped on top of existing fern images.

I colorized some Petaloo, color me crazy flower with Luminarte color concentrate, and heat set to dry.

Then i just assembled my card. I used Tim's Tiny Attacher to adhere my ribbon to the card. Stamping the sentiment on a strip of cardstock I then cut it into a flag form.

Memory Box and Luminarte - a Perfect Match !!

Welcome to our second project for today as part of our Memory Box Blog Hop! Dt member, Lynn Kopas has shared a tutorial on making an easy frame using Memory Box stamps and our Twinkling LuminArte H20's!

To read about the hop and learn about how to win prizes, check out this post!

Some combinations are just right .... a perfect match ! This week Memory Box and Creative Imaginations-Luminarte have teamed up to share some very cool projects ! The Design Team at Creative Imaginations was so excited to have the opportunity to use some AMAZING, high quality and very artsy rubber mounted stamps from Memory Box. The combination of these gorgeous stamps and Luminarte Paints are, indeed, a perfect match ! For my project I decorated a 12 x 12 Bare Elements Frame in a mixed media fashion. I started by prepping the frame with Gesso and placing pieces of old music paper, old book paper, vintage sewing patterns, and a ticket along the frame using Mod Podge to adhere the papers.

Sorry for the glare on the altered frame photo - I took this pic LATE at night in my craft room !! 

Next I chose some Luminarte Paints in Apple Blossom, Pink Azalea and Pearl Red.

Luminartes I covered the frame with the lumiarte paints and loved how the paints soaked into the creases and wrinkles of the papers.  I used the same paints and applied them directly to the Memory Box Heart Stamp and stamped multiple images ...

I cut out the heart images, inked the edges and staggered them along the side of my frame.

 I added some rub-ons here and there on the frame, tied a girly pink ribbon around the frame, added a title and was done !! This was a fun project and a great way to combine a GORGEOUS stamp with AWESOME Luminarte Paints. Stay tuned for more great projects from the Design Teams of Memory Box and Creative Imaginations !! TFL !!

More with IOD Wild Spirit

Hi there, it's Eva here again and I am sharing two cards with the gorgeous brand new IOD Wild Spirit line.  Have you been able to pick it up in the stores yet?  I sure hope so, as they are very dreamy!  I love the rich colors of this line!  So let me start with my first card.  I used IOD's Unity stamp set called Provencial Collection - My Dear.  Such gorgeous image and sure had fun painting it with my Twinkling H2O's.  I also used some pretty Petaloo flowers from their Color Me Crazy line.

Beautiful
 
 Here are the steps to create this card:

- Create a 5.5" square card base out of black card stock

- Cut a 5" square from the brown Wild Spirit patterned paper, distress the edges, layer it on a 5.25" square cut from white card stock and adhere all that to card front.

- Stamp image using Memento ink on a piece of plain cotton fabric

- Paint image in with Twinkling H2O's (I used #26378 African Jade, #26376 Lemongrass, #26378 Olive Vine, # 26376 Apple Blossom, 26376 Yellow Rose).  I dried my fabric and frayed the edges a little bit and layered it on black card stock.

- Cut a 2.5" x 5"  wide panel from the blue Wild Spirit patterned paper, distress the edges. 

- Punch a 5" border (I used Martha Stewart border punch) and paint it with Olive vine Twinnkling H2O.  Cut it in half and use that half as a border on the panel, tie crinkled ribbon around it and adhere the panel to the card front.

- Using pop dots add the painted flower image on card front and add the Wild Spirit sticker sentiment along with Petaloo flowers.

My next card again is using the IOD Wild Spirit line and it's a quicker card to put together.

Love to ride
 
For this card I used a Samantha Walker Silhuette cutting file to lay my Wild Spirit stickers on and hopefully you can spy my Twinkling H2O painted half border left from my previous card.

Hope you like these cards and make sure you check your local or online stores to look for the IOD Wild Spirit line from Creative Imaginations along with the very yummy Luminarte Twinkling H2Os.
