Day 4: card

Day-4

I have used the itty bitty stamp sets “Live your Art” and “Beautiful Disaster” (Follow the links to get yours.)

The “Beautiful Disaster” stamp was colored in with Galetos, then misted with a water mister. The “Live your Art” stamp was stamped with SU’s ink Cool Caribbean. I used teal staples to staple down the Live your Art words.

I used a Spellbinder die for the circles. One circle is Pool Party CS, and also Whisper White CS.

Behind the image is a strip of card stock that I created by using various stamps from 2 different stamp sets: “Music of my Heart“ and  “Sing a New Song.“ You might remeber post day 2, I told you all how I made the one strip behind the main image? Well this is another strip of that “made” paper. I cut it to the size I wanted then ran it through a paper crimper. Then added some of the pink Galeto to the paper, to tie it all in together.

Behind that, I created some more paper. With Multi-Media grade paper I sprayed “Fire Works” spry ink over a doily, it made a really really cool impression, however it ended up getting covered. I really like the Fire Works brand sprays, because they come out sparkly. The blue and white Baker’s Twin is from Pizzazz-a-Plenty. (When I just wen there to get you the link, I noticed she is having a BOGO sale!)

The 3 embllies are “In Color Boutique Details #130938” from Stampin’ Up!

GIU-girl-day-2

My main stamp used is “Bloom & Simplify” the artist is Angie Blom for Unity stamp Co. I like Angie Bloom’s style! She has more stamps set for Unity click here to check them all out! I have colored my image with Prismacolor pencils. I stamped the sentiment and image with Chocolate Chip ink, I sponged the edges with Baked Brown Sugar ink from SU.

I created a collage sheet using the music stamp from “Music of my Heart,” 2 stamps from the set “Sing a New Song,” and the strip of words from the “Bloom & Simplify” set. I know I did all that and you can’t really see it, but my strip turned out pretty cool looking I think. The other strip of paper behind the main image is the back side of the polka dotted DSP. I added a clear button and 3 butterfly brads from SU. The burlap is from JoAnn’s Fabrics.

Here is my Day 1: card

GIU-girl-day-1I have used the stamp set “Kokeshi Cuties,” created by Samantha Walker for Unity. I have colored her in with Copics. I added a SU tiny pearl in the flower in her hair.

Behind my girl stamp is 2 different size Sizzix dies. Then the strip of Bravo Burgundy was dry embossed using a Cuddle Bug embossing folder from an “Asian” set. I then use a metallic gold Gelato and rubbed it onto the strip, over the raised flowers.

Behind the strip I stamped the stamp called “Dots for Sure.”  I used the same metallic gold Gelato and rubbed it onto the stamp, then with my mister I sprayed water on it and stamped it. The back ground DSP is from DCWV “The Far East Stack.”

Dots for Sure - IPS 129This is the “Dots for Sure” stamp.

Kokeshi CutiesThis is the “Kokeshi Cuties” stamp.
