MC Aug/16 - CAS - ECD Noel - Let It Snow

I got a couple new die sets by Dee's Distinctively. Love them. Today I'm using the "Pine Tee" 3 pce set

Also using one of the newest A Way With Words dies on the inside by Elizabeth Craft Designs "Noel" also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design "Let It Snow...large"

I side folded my white card (5.5"w x 4.25"h).  Cut a piece of glossy paper a bit larger than my card and created the sky by applying dots of blue alcohol inks on a felt pad and then just swiping it across the sky area. Dribbled a bit of blending solution. Adhered to card front and trimmed down.

Die cut a bunch of the pine trees from white cardstock, sponged Distress "Pine Needles" all over then hit them direct to paper with the pine needles and "Forest Moss". 

Tore a piece of paper to give me a contoured line to sponge some "Pumice Stone" and "Weathered Wood" to create shadow areas.

Adhered my pine trees. Spattered white gesso all over.

punched out a 3/4" circle and sponged a bit of the pumice and adhered to card - my moon...

Stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

On the inside stamped the trees (Deep Red "Winter Pines") using the moss all over and then the pine needles here and there.

Die cut the "Noel" from blue cardstock, inked with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek "Blue Sparkle" embossing powder.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_OneSheetCard_ECDAutumn,HappyBirthday_LearnToWrite.html
I showed the gals at our last get together how to construct this one sheet card fold structure to add to a card... Of course that gave me another insert to work with, so had to use it somehow... It's been feeling a little like fall lately, so thought I'd go with that theme. I still haven't done anything with the ones I made in July - have to get to it...


I'm using one of newer  "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs  ("4 Seasons - Autumn" 4pce set) and the "Happy Birthday" 2 pce set; also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_EaselMacarons_ECDHappyBirthday_Possibility.html

I LOVE Macarons. I think they're my favorite cookie. I try to avoid them as much as possible since they are loaded with refined sugar... but every once in a while I get tempted - sigh!! so I thought I'd make some faux ones that look more like Macarons including the traditional little "feet". BIG GRIN.

And I wanted to pair it with one of the newest electronic cut files from Suzanne available on the Silhouette onLine store "Fabulous". Those thin strokes on the Fabulous are really, really thin, but so worth the effort of getting them carefully of my mat. the word just looks so "FABULOUS..."

No Escaping It & True Magic

http://yogiemp.com/Calligraphy/Artwork/NoEscapingIt&TrueMagic.html

http://yogiemp.com/Calligraphy/Artwork/NoEscapingIt&TrueMagic.htmlThought I'd throw in a bit of calligraphy for a change... Our Guild put out a challenge to create something with one of two quotes they chose. We'll see all the different result with it. I decided to do something with both quotes.

I still had one more alcohol technique to do from Tim's 103 class using a straw or other air propellant to move alcohol inks around. I used my airbrush machine. I remember doing this a long time ago with a straw. Several of my cards were published in one of the card making magazines at the time.

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any image. Enjoy

Then I was in a mood to create autumn leaves with the ink - didn't turn out how I wanted so ended up sponging the leaves through a die cut stencil... Love the colors.

It's a CAS card - rare for me. You can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image. Enjoy

MC Aug/16 - Quill - ECD Thank You - Thoughtfulness


http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_Quill_ECDThankYou_Thoughtfulness.htmlA very productive day at quilling again. Love when that happens... Came home and immediately created the card, finishing the inside today. Am very pleased with it although the coloring on the image should be more a peachy background. C'est la vie.

I'm using the new Quilled Creations "Highlights" quilling paper. Loving them, they are one color on one side and another color on the other. The one I'm using for the flowers is pink/purple.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_Quill_ECDThankYou_Thoughtfulness.htmlI'm using an A Way With Words die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Thank You" also available on Quietfire Design HERE

MC Aug/16 - Faux Lace - ECD Thanks

I'm loving doing this faux lace technique and especially after figuring out an easier way to do it. BIG GRIN
Haven't done anything on the inside yet. Will wait until I need to give it to someone and put the appropriate saying  there...

I'm using an A Way With Words die "Thanks" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I side folded my 5.5"w x 4.25"h white card. Embossed the front using Elizabeth Craft Designs "Flower Mosaic" embossing folder. Sponged all around using Distress "Brushed Corduroy" and then "Tea Dye".

I created the faux lace, placing my tape on my craft sheet, moving the tape around to create holes and lacy areas using a very pointy balled stylus, then pressed my white cardstock over the tape, lifting it from my craft sheet. Sprinkled with some gold and copper glitter and some Stampendous "Crystal Snow". Burnished.

The frame around the lace is from my stash - alcohol technique on glossy paper and then die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Fitted Frames 1 - Lace Rectangles" set, using the negative portion.

Adhered a piece of Gold/Gold Sari ribbon on the diagonal lower right corner. Adhered the frame assembly, then the bow on top.

Die cut the "Thanks" twice. Inking with Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and embossing with Emerald Creek Era Powders "Charred Gold' embossing powder. Adhered it off set to the 2nd layer which was colored with a dark brown marker, then onto the card.

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_PunchFlowersFauxLace_ECDForeverFriends_ThoseWhoFind_EnjoyYourBD.html

So I found an easier way to do this faux lace technique... applying the tape to a craft sheet, moving it around and then pressing the cardstock down and lifting the tape. Real easy on the fingers this way...

And while I was at my last get together with the gals, made a bunch more of the punch flowers. I tried spraying them with Spray Starch which helped a bit but no where as stiff as I would like,,, so need more experimenting. But really like the results of them this time.

Finally getting around to doing another of the techniques from the Tim Holtz 103 class - Alcohol Landscape Painting Technique. I'm pleased with the results and it goes really fast... I worked on Yupo which is a really nice material to work on although it's not heat stable so embossing something is tricky...

MC Aug/16 - Faux Lace - To Create - The Only True Gift - HB


http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_FauxLace_ToCreate_TheOnlyTrueGift_HB.html
One of the gals from our quilling group will be teaching/demoing the "Faux and Fancy Lace Technique". I remember doing this technique eons ago - everything old is new again... So I checked back to see my instructions and created a new card to bring with me for show and share. It's wicked on the fingers... I need to find my adhesive eraser.

Another gal from quilling brought a card with flowers similar to those purple ones, so I said I'd try to mimic them for here. They're made with a circle punch from a smoother type of mulberry paper. It's very malleable when wet.


http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCAug16_FauxLace_ToCreate_TheOnlyTrueGift_HB.htmlI'm using a couple quote, sentiment and design element stamps from Quietfire Design.
