Mermaids, Joy Clair & Rinea

Hello stamping friends!

I have a brand new card to share with you today for Joy Clair Stamps PLUS - we are collaborating with Rinea all month long too!  So you are in for a treat - shiny, pretty foils combined with gorgeous stamps make for some amazing creating!

Today I'm using a new release called "Mermaid at Heart". I think this is going to be one of the most popular of this release - it's just so pretty and I love all the sentiments!  I combined it with the Princess Foiled Paper Variety Pack from Rinea.




Check out the HANDMADE CARD I created:



I used some ShinHan Alcohol markers to color the tail - it works perfectly on the Rinea Foiled Paper!






Thanks for stopping by today!  I really love reading all your comments :) 

Until next time,

Artsystamper Mermaid Series - Part 4

Hello friends!



Happy Tuesday and Welcome September!  Where did the summer go?

Here it is!  Part 4 - the grand finale of my Mermaid Series for the Artystamper design team. I hope I have given you many ideas to use your Mermaid Wishes Digital Stamp Set .

Here is handmade card #4:




I had made a mermaid scale background using various Glitters Galore colors, so I thought it was a perfect fit for this final card!!  A bit of tulle and a whole bunch of Nuvo Crystal Dew Drops perfected the final card along with another cute paper clip anchor.

Thanks for stopping by and following my Mermaid Series!  What stamp set will I use for my next series of cards? You will have to come back in 2 weeks to find out!!

Rinea Fall Burlap Banner

Hello friends!

Happy September!  I have a beautiful Rinea creation to share with you today!  We are having fun this month collaborating with Joy Clair Stamps!  I hope you enjoy all the designers have in store for you.

Here are the products you will need for this project:
(I used these colors from the pack:
Starstruck Marigold Orange
Glossy Ruby/Gold
Glossy Marigold/Gold
Glossy Mocha/Gold)

Joy Clair Fall Greetings Stamp Set

Liquid Adhesive

Burlap
Jute Twine

Stazon Ink

Chipboard Pieces

For this project, I did a few different techniques.  First, using the Glossy Mocha/Gold foiled paper, I covered two leaf/feather style chipboard pieces. I sanded off the edges to mold to the chipboard, then inked the edges with Stazon Ink & did some random stamping with a leaf stamp.



I used a chipboard tag and covered with Glossy Marigold/Gold. Set this aside for another step.


I stamped a few of the different leaf images onto all 3 glossy colors, then fussy cut them out.

 

I handcut a pennant shape from my burlap fabric (I just picked this up from our local fabric shop).

I used the "Give Thanks" sentiment from the gorgeous stamp set for my tag, using Stazon on stamp it. I used a variety of the fussy cut leaves to decorate the tag.  Once I had all my pieces, I tied some jute twine around the elements, then glued them down to my burlap pennant.



 



 

I love how beautifully this turned out!  Sometimes simple is beautiful, don't you think?

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog!  I love to read your comments -they are always an encouragement.
Have a great day!

Artsystamper Mermaid Series - Part 3

Hello friends!



Happy Tuesday!

I know you are excited for Part 3 in my Mermaid Series for the Artystamper design team.  Have you picked up your  Mermaid Wishes stamp set yet?

Here is handmade card #3:



I just adore pre-colored digital images. I'm not the best coloring artist, so when I can just print and go, I am in love!!!  You can see the tail peek out from under the die cut circle - it actually pops up when laying flat!  How about that cute little anchor paper clip? Too cute!  And of course...I can forget the Nuvo drops to decorate.  

I hope you will check out the shop to grab this beautiful set. I look forward to sharing the Grand Finale Part 4 in two weeks!

See you soon!

Joy Clair & Thermoweb Collab

Hello stamping friends!

I have a some brand new cards to share with you today for Joy Clair Stamps! Guess what? We've partnered with Thermoweb this month for an awesome collaboration!!  

For these cards, I used the following products from Thermoweb:

Deco Foil Foil Transfer Sheets - Shattered Glass, Jade, Pink Quartz

I used the BOSSBABE Stamp Set from Joy Clair too! I thought it went perfectly with the gem nature of the shattered glass!  I also used the "Proverbs 31" Stamp set for one of the cards. 


Check out the HANDMADE CARDS I created:

It's really hard to photograph the metallics! It's soooo pretty!




I loved how the Starry Night and regular toner sheets picked up the Decofoil Transfer! I don't have a fancy machine at all - just a cheapo laminator :) I first laminated the Starry Nights pieces, then used the foil again to mirror transfer the image onto the regular Toner Sheets! So much fun!  I can see myself really getting into this method!

 

 

 

It's really hard to photograph the beauty of the shattered glass! It reflects all the colors so GORGEOUSLY!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I really love reading all your comments :)

Until next time,
Jess

Flower Power with Rinea

Hello friends!

I'm back again today with another beautiful Rinea creationToday I'm sharing a card that I made most of the same materials I used in my first Rinea project this month! It's cool that you can take the same materials and create something entirely new!
Here are the products you will need for this project:
Image Stazon Pigment Inks - Piano Black, Shamrock Green
Flower Die Cuts
Liquid Adhesive
Assorted Punches
Embossing Folder
Nuvo Vintage Drops
Cardstock

To start, I took some of the Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled paper that I had stamped with Oma's Postcard & Shamrock Green Pigment Ink and ran it through a quilted pattern embossing folder. I had a leftover piece from my Fortune Cookies with the circle cut out, so I used that as my overlay! I trimmed it down to fit exactly over my base piece and glued it down with liquid adhesive.
I used the Starburst Sentiment Stamp with Piano Black Pigment Ink to stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment onto a piece of Silver/Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper, then punched out with a circle punch. I also punched a piece of Emerald/Emerald Starstuck paper using a scalloped circled and layered with my sentiment.

At this point, I felt like I really needed an extra focal point, so I grabbed a pretty flower diecut that I had in my stash. Didn't it work perfectly? I adhered it with some liquid adhesive and then popped up the sentiment.  A few layers of cardstock were added in the background to frame it and voila!  To embellish just that little extra, I used Nuvo Vintage Drops on the quilting to look like tufts.

Have a great day!
