Inspirational Friday with Mariëtte

I needed a birthday card for a man and as it's autumn and his house is situated in the middle of a forest I came up with this lay-out.

Lovely autumn colors and falling leaves. The background texture is done with a 3D embossing folder, colored with distress oxide sprays and randomly stamped the fall text on it 

The leaves are stamped with several colors of archival inks and covered with a thick layer of clear embossing powder. The leaves are adhered to a panel stamped with the wood structure stamp

I used those handy clips for holding the leaves when heating the embossing powder. I received them as a gift from a student during my workshops in Olympia, Washington at Art'n Soul. Such a clever idea and I use them often.
I love how the colors of the leaves pops when heat embossed.

Les Trésors du Mercredi avec Carole / Wednesday's Treasure with Carole

Sur un papier aquarelle travaillé avec les Nuance, j'ai utilisé le pochoir de feuille avec de l'encre Distress. J'ai collé une retaille de papier coordonnées aux couleurs de mon projet. La grande feuille d'érable a été créée avec la cache et découpée par la suite sur ma carte.

Treats on Tuesday with Christine- La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with the card I sent to Marianne for the October swap Mariette organized on Facebook.

I started with a page I created when I did Kellee Wynne's "The Layered Page" on line course (thanks Ellie for pointing me toward this one 😏). 
I originally made the pages into a book, well two actually using Kellee's instructions. 
This is the page as part of the book before I cut the first page off, I turned the image so you can orientate your self to the card.

I added stamping and stencilled using crackle paste to add more depth to the page then stamped the flower image and using a Sakura Micron pen I etched the edge of the flower then fussy cut the image. I've explained this process using the same stamp in a previous post.  I stamped the sentiments and cut them and used the individual words.

Ellie's creative Monday / Lundi créatif d'Ellie

Ever thought of stamping with a light color and use this image to watercolor it? 
.. that's what I did here. 
I stamped the yellow flower, a daisy with a light brown stamping ink, and used watercolors to paint it. I also added some darker accents with a brown marker. 
I added the flower, which I fussy-cut, to a page in my art journal. 
The page was made with parts of a paper-napkin. I also added some blue one-stroke watercolor flowers for a nice contrast..

Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam

Welcome back to Magenta Super Saturday – thank you for visiting today.

I have one last shaving cream technique to share with you today.  I’m using a stencil again, but this time I’ve added some gold embossing using the “Flowers All Over” stencil.

To create this card, I started by using my powder tool on a piece of white, 80# cardstock.  I taped the stencil to the cardstock then colored in the flowers and shapes openings with a VersaMark pen.  I worked on one section at a time – coloring approximately a quarter of the stencil openings.  I removed the stencil and covered the inked area with gold embossing powder.  After heat setting the embossing powder, I allowed it to cool for a few seconds, then replaced the stencil and repeated the process until all the stencil openings had been embossed.  I did several of these pieces because I wanted to make a bunch of cards at one time.

To create the colored background you see in the picture, I prepared my shaving cream and alcohol ink using the process you can see here.  After the cardstock was dry, I cut the panels to 4 ¼” x 4 ¼”.  (I could have started with this size cardstock but I have a bunch of pre-cut A2 cardstock that I grabbed when I started these cards.) 

Next, I cut the panels across the diagonal, creating two triangle pieces.  I also cut some 4 ¼” square gold cardstock into triangles in the same way. 

I splattered some gold paint on the front of a white, A2 card.  I layered the stenciled piece over the gold piece, then adhered it to the card front with the long side of the stenciled piece along the folded edge of the card.  

Use scissors to trim off the edges at the top and bottom of the card.   I also stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock and embossed with gold embossing powder.  I cut the sentiment piece and a piece of gold cardstock with oval dies, then adhered them to the front of the card.
