Cone Gift Holders | SU Convention Display Boards


The gold vellum paper screams like fabulous tissue paper or that beautiful paper you see inside the folds of envelopes... and so that's where my inspiration came.


This type of gift holder can be used for so much including flowers or liquorice, etc.

hello Jack! | SU Convention Display Boards


Oh those cheeks!!!
This time I used the Seasonally Scattered stamp set as a title.  I used pool party and bermuda bay markers to colour the stamp and then stamp it on the paper.


You'll notice that I sponged pool party ink on the page over top the patterned paper with the stencils.  I still love that quiet effect.  You've seen me do this a lot and I am always drawn to the circles.  Despite my crazy manner, I usually stick to the basics.  And in my book, circles are basics.


And again, I've used the Moments Ago digital brush cut outs.  This time I sponged pool party on the white cut out.

Make Today Amazing | SU Convention Display Boards


This is a lot of gold and white.
It was fast.
I like fast.


Note: Careful - not all photo paper are created equal. I embossed this Amazing Birthday stamp directly on the photo paper.  This Canon Selphy paper is waterproof and sturdy... you still need to be careful but you've got a better chance not to melt your photo. I love the effect!

Modeling Paste + SU = Awesome Card

This was my swap card to some special people...

It's pretty awesome... up close at lease. There are several steps involved for this card... but the big thing is that it involves dimension and texture, as well as water colouring, machine sewing and resist embossing.

You can see the dimension here.

Here's the deal - Stampin' Up!'s new stencils are amazing so make sure you check them out!




It doesn't take long for that to dry but while you are letting that dry, I created the water-colour circles. This circle is from the Sweetie Pie stamp set, which is available online (not in the regular catalog).



Use the circle frame lit, to cut out your circles. 

The "awesome" is once again from the Moments Ago digital brush cut out from my e-cutter.

Sew it together and your done!!
WOOHOO!

Dear Artisans | AWW

Dear Artisans,

I [heart] you. You know why.
But most importantly... there's no limit to your awesomeness and I can't wait to see where this adventure takes you.

The end.

This card is our 2013-2014 Artisan swap card and each card has a little note to them.  We've really clicked and I know we'll be friends for a long time.

Do you know anyone that is awesome?
Wanna make this card?
It's easy.

Using modelling paste (more on this on Thursday) plus re-inker, swipe that through the stencil using a palette knife or old gift card. Then slap together anything you find on your craft table.  Stitch and glue.  Yup.  Its that easy. ;)
One last project for you to share in my reign as Artisan next week! 
But so many fun things to continue.  Make sure you are following me via Facebook, Bloglovin', Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!

Now, please check out the amazing Cindy's project!
