Last night, Judi Daugherty was awaiting the birth of her granddaughter, Judi's first grandchild. While Judi waited to hear from her son about the progress of her granddaughter's arrival, she 'baby-doodled' at the store.

I wish I could doodle and end up with something as good as this in just one afternoon.

From Outlines Rubber Stamp  . . . another good note:  the paper pad they used has been put on order.

Stacked Flowers

Silicone - Dimensional Clear
Pearl Pen: Cream
Pearl Pen: Lt. Blue
Kaisercraft: Chapter One
The Ultimate White Glue
Scotch Mounting Tape

  Cards by Jenny Gropp

All of these cards feature printed-paper from Kaisercraft’s Chapter One paper pad. 

 CARD 1Stamps: 
B-539 Thank You Square Small
C-684 Plain Petals Small
G-1042 Pointed Posy Large
E-1039 Round Posy Medium
Using printed-paper from the Chapter One pad, stamp the images and cut them out as shown.

I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with Clear EP.
 Create a square tent style card with white card stock.

Cover the left side of the card with the floral paper.

Use a Cuttlebug embossing folder for white middle panel.

Add the curved piece on the right side of the card.

This piece is on a punch out page in the paper pad.

After adhering, cut the edge of the card base along the curved line.
Gently curve the cut out flowers.

I add a dab of Ultimate Glue in the flower center.

 Dimensional Silicone is used to pop up the petals.

I squeeze just a little bit out and then use a toothpick to scrape it off the tube and apply it to the flower.
Put the layers together as shown.

When the silicone dries it will keep the “bend” in the flowers.

The final two flowers are secured together with a brad, one stamped and one fabric white flower.

I added these with a dab of Ultimate Glue in the center, no silicone.
You can see the dimension achieved by using the Dimensional Silicone.
 I pulled one more punched out piece from the back of the pad and added the scallop black border alongside the ribbon length.

Here is the finished card.
H-108 Clematis Large
E-111 Clematis Medium
C-577 Clematis Small
Stamp the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat emboss with Clear EP.

Use vellum and also printed-paper from the pad to create the flowers.

The little tag is part of the paper pad. I added a small kraft card stock mat to help frame the sentiment tag.
 Create the card base as shown using white card stock for the base.

The striped paper and word paper is from the pad.

I added a die cut (My Favorite Things Dienamics) to add detail at the bottom and half of a die cut along the top edge.

Along the bottom I added a strip of the striped paper in the middle of the die cut.
Tie a loopy bow using Jute String and adhere it to the top of the tag.

I gently bent the tag, adding some slight curves.

I used silicone again under the curves to help keep them in place and not straighten out.
Add the flowers to the card front.

I used silicone under the bottom two only.

Keeping the silicone close to the center on the vellum flower so it would not be seen.
The top vellum flower is added with just a dab of Ultimate Glue in the center, no silicone, as it would show through the vellum.
Using a Cream Viva D├ęcor Pearl Pen add small pearl embellishments in the bottom right corner.

Also add a large center pearl in the flower center.
Here is the finished card.
E-657 Striped Petals Large
C-1079 Happy Birthday to you…
 Stamp the flower twice, using Versafine Onyx Black and heat embossing with Clear EP.

Cut them out.
 Stamp the birthday sentiment along the bottom edge of the card.
 Create the card base as shown.

The card opens tent style at the bottom and is A2 in size.

 I used a Corner Chomper to round all four corners.
 Start adding the flowers; I also added a dab of silicone under the flowers to pop them up.
 Use a Light Blue Viva Pearl Pen to add a large pearl embellishment in the flower center.

You can see it does not meet the edge of the stamped center.
 Gently tap the underneath side of the card to help the pearl “settle” and spread out evenly to cover the entire center area.

A larger pearl takes more time to dry, so be sure to put it up somewhere that it will remain undisturbed while it hardens.

I allow them to dry overnight before they go in an envelope.

Coloring With Brushstixs (Tutorial & Video)

"Hello Everyone!

Today I have a detailed tutorial with a video for this tag project featuring two of Penny Black’s new transparent sets (Flowers Sweet and Wishes) along with Tsukineko’s Brushstixs. 

These mixed media brushes were released at CHA and come in a wide array of styles.  The foam tips are fabulous for all sorts of projects and applications.  Plus, they are washable.

Below are detailed instructions for the tag as well as a video included in Step 3 that shows how the Brushstixs were used for coloring.  Enjoy…..

Step 1:  Die cut an oval from white cardstock.  Leave the metal die over the cardstock and apply Sea Breeze VersaMagic ink with a jumbo sponge dauber. 

Step 2: Remove the metal die and dust the cardstock with an anti-static pouch.  Stamp the flower and sentiment with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.  Set aside.

Step 3:  On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the flower with Onyx Black VersaFine ink and heat emboss with clear powder.  Color with Brushstixs and Thatched Straw, Mango Madness and Red Magic VersaMagic inks.  For a visual reference using the Brushstixs, please view the video.

Note: The leaves on the main tag were also colored with Brushstixs, Aloe Vera VersaMagic and Tea Leaves VersaMagic.

Step 4: Trim the flower and spray with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

Step 5:  Align and attach the flower element to the prepared tag with dimensional foam.

Step 6:  Add a decorative ribbon.

Have a great weekend...."

Kathi Peterson took these surplus bags that were given to her to make re-usable tote bags she could sell to raise money for the Washington Youth Academy Foundation. She gesso'd over the company logo that was on the bag, and then applied the wording. There is a limited number of these bags, and Kathi is selling them for a $10 donation.

To find information on the Washington Youth Academy, go to www.wyafoundationcom. I think you'll agree the donation goes to a worthy and great cause!
