MC Sept/16 - Daisy - ECD Hello, Friend - A Friend

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCSept16_Daisy_ECDHello,Friend_AFriendt.html
Boy was I disappointed with the way the Distress pads inked the Altenew "Spring Daisy". I normally swear by Distress for inking and water coloring techniques, but they sure didn't work this time... After messing around with several color versions, I finally got frustrated and said to heck with it and inked the heavy detail stamp with Picket Fence and embossed with white embossing powder. Sheesh, who would have thunk it would turn out OK...

Love the trellis I created with Tim's Trellis die and Emerald Creek "Hammered Metal" embossing powder 

PS: the vibrant pink on the inside of the card is pretty close to the color it's in real. I wasn't able to get the photo of the front of the card to match - sigh!!

MC Sept/16 - CAS Alcohol Sky Birch Tree Scene - Have Yourself A Merry

The sky is the cut off piece of the previous sky card I uploaded a couple days ago - it was sitting on my desk and I figured I might as well use it... So I created another birch tree background to die cut.

I created the alcohol snowy background on a glossy type paper using and felt tool and inking the felt with a good sized dot each of "Denim", "Stream", "Sailboat Blue" and some blending solution, pouncing and twisting my felt tool to avoid repeat patterns. I then added a bit more blending solution and created a few streaks across the sky.

To create the snowy effect, applied a clean felt to my tool and added MINISCULE dots of blending solution (about 4) and gently pounced here and there. NOTE: the less blending solution on your felt, the smaller the snowflakes...)

To accent some of the snowflakes I applied a bit of blending solution on my craft sheet and used a fine tipped paint brush, picking up some of the solution and adding to the snowflake dots here and there. 


The birch trees: Applied "Teakwood", "Pitch Black" alcohol ink and some blending solution to my felt applicator and pounced. Then die cut using Sizzix Thinlits "Birch Tree" die.

Adhered both elements to my side folded white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h)

Stamped the little bird (Inkadinkado "Winter Birds") using Distress ink "Fired Brick" and fussy cut around it, adhered to branch.

Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas..." 3pce set) using Versafine Black Onyx on white cardstock and clear embossed, then just cut a wavy line along the top and bottom.

On the inside, stamped the bird, again with Distress pads and clear embossed. Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "Christmas Is The Day..." 9pce set) with the black and clear embossed.

MC Sept/16 - Alcohol Sky - ECD Let It Snow - Christmas Is A Piece

quietfirecreations.blogspot.ca

My turn on the Quietfire Creations blog today and I created a very quick and easy CAS card... I created an alcohol snowy sky and pulled from my stash a background paper for my trees made from Brushos, some gold powder, coarse salt on watercolor paper. I get in to those days where I just feel like making backgrounds and then have a bunch to choose from when I need them... Greens are one of my favorites to make.

MC Sept/16 - Alcohol Birch Tree Scene - ECD Peace - Joyeux Noel

Well I had a wonderful day with the gals yesterday showing them how to do the various alcohol techniques I've been uploading for the past week. BIG GRIN. And of course I ended up making a bunch more backgrounds and things... Only the sky background on this card was done in the demo. I had the idea to do a birch tree background and forgot to do it... so when I got home created one right away - my brain doesn't hold my memory very long anymore. Sigh!!

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

I'm also using a Silhouette file from Suzanne "Winter Wonderland" and a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design "International Merry Christmas" 6pce set

Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h)

eCut the deer ("Winter Wonderland") from white cardstock and colored with Distress pads in "Antique Linen all over and a touch of "Walnut Stain" on the hoofs and antlers. eCut a blackout layer and adhered the two together.


The sky is a marbling technique using "Snow Cap" alcohol ink and several other colors with a touch of blending solution on a craft sheet, then the paper is smooshed through the inks a few times.

The birch trees: Applied "Teakwood", "Pitch Black" alcohol ink and some blending solution to my felt applicator and pounced. The die cut using Sizzix Thinlits "Birch Tree" die. Adhered the deer under some of the trees prior to adhering to the sky background and trimmed down, then onto the card front.

On the inside, stamped the tree line (Just For Fun) using Versafine Black Onyx. eCut a smaller deer and colored as above, then adhered to inside.

Stamped the sentiment with the black and clear embossed.

Sponged the sky area with some "Salty Ocean"

MC Sept/16 - Alcohol Ink Sky - Here and There - Deep Within


http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCSept16_AlcoholInkSky_HereAndThere-DeepWitnin.htmlI was lucky enough to get a whole bunch of photo paper (the kind used in automatic photo printers at our local big box store - Superstore...). Wasn't sure how good it would work since photo paper is not recommended for alcohol techniques. But luckily this paper works beautifully - I think because it didn't have the traditional upper film layer yet, which it gets as it's going through the machine. So it's basically just a glossy paper - I think. Whatever, I'm happy I got so much of it. I can experiment to my heart's content without thinking of the expense of wasting regular glossy paper. So I tried the various techniques I love using with alcohol inks... I'll be giving some to the quilling gals at our next session and maybe doing a bit of a playday...

http://yogiemp.com/HP_cards/MiscChallenges/MiscChallenges2016/MCSept16_AlcoholInkSky_HereAndThere-DeepWitnin.htmlAnyway so far I've got 4 cards done with 2 more on my table, so I'll be uploading 1 per day for the next few days BIG GRIN.

MC Aug 1/16 - Round Easel Macarons - ECD Party & - Celebrate HB

quietfirecreations.blogspot.ca
My turn on the Quietfire Creations blog today and I thought I'd make a tutorial on how I make my Macarons. BIG GRIN. I love Macarons and if it wasn't for the excess refined sugar in them I'd probably eat them every day... So I try to stay away from temptation...  PS the tutorial uses fat oval shapes, but I tried it with a round punch and that works just as well, giving a different perspective. BIG GRIN.
