Miss You a Lot

Hi  everyone, Steph Ackerman here on this lovely Spring Thursday.  It's a little dreary today, but the flowers are beginning to bloom!

Today I'm working with Aidan, a Julie Nutting stamp from Prima.  Masculine cards can be a challenge but working with Aidan, you can create a fun and potentially whimsy card.

 
I began by using Wendy Vecchi embossing paste with Tim Holtz Splatter stencil to create some background texture on a panel of cardstock.  I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink then adhered the panel to the card.
 
 

Aidan was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then fussy cut.  He was lightly colored with Copic Markers before adding clothes using Graphic 45 papers.  The sentiment is from WPlus9.



Thank you for visiting.

Travel album: More process

Hi everyone!

Pi here and I'm continuing my mini serie, where I'm documenting my process in putting together a travel album using Simple stories snap collection You are here.

You can find the set up plan HERE,
#1 process video HERE.
#2 process video HERE.

This week I really feel that I have grown in my process. Usually I'm not a quick embellisher and it takes me litterly hours to make one filler card. But this time I'm super happy with what I made and it came together so easy. It must be that everything is already coordinating. This is bad new for my huge stash that will just continuing sitting there as I will start buying collections from now on - LOL!

Heartfelt Creations stamp and die set to create a beautiful swirl card with tutorial


hi.... Bev here today. I am thrilled to day to share this card with you...I was inspired by spring theme and mood board. What better inspiration than flowers and colours.

I am using my newest Heartfelt Creations products from The Rubber Buggy. It prompted me to get out my copics again, use Delightful Daisy stamps and dies along with the Tim Holtz ranger mini ink pads to create some cards. 

Instructions:
I started by stamping the images and the sentiment as per above. I then coloured this section using Tim Holtz ranger mini ink pads and a finger sponge.


These stamped and die cut flowers are coloured with some Tim Holtz ranger mini ink pads with finger sponge.. but then accented the shading with copic markers.


Using my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower shaping tool kit I mold my flowers.


You start on the back side and work them until they curl to you liking.


You can see some signo white gel pen accents on these pieces also.. they were added before sculpting the flowers. Above are 3 different sizes.


Here is a double layer flower. When you turn them over you mold and shape just the centre piece to flatten the flower.  If you want double or triple you glue the centres inside each other.



On my finished card you can see some background flat inked flowers, some single shaped flowers and some double layered sculpted flowers. It great to mix them up. Some flowers are placed on top of the background coloured flowers.. some left plain. On this back ground I used a tan ink to lightly colour the white background, I inked the outer edges and cut the slanted shape for dimension. A print pattern is in the background and lots of fun ribbon accents this card.


You can also see the liquid pearl dot trailer in this photo.


Here is the photo shot showing the fabulous 3D depth in this card.
I enjoyed sharing with you today.

Hockey Birthday

Hi  everyone, Steph Ackerman here on this lovely Spring Thursday.  And finally the sun is shining and there is a hint of the flowers that are yet to come.

I love this Hockey Boy from Stamping Bella.  It would make a wonderful card for the hockey player in your life.  After coloring him with Copic Markers, he was mounted on Bazzill brown cardstock.



The background paper is from Graphic 45 and the sentiment is from Art Impressions.



Thank you for visiting.

Snail Mail Decoration with Netra

 Hey everyone ! 
I know you have seen the growing popularity with term "Snail Mail". 
I mean, we've all heard of sending letters, but only recently have I seen it go into the 
scrapbooky, crafty, realm. Well, Ive been bitten by the bug. 

I created a card, so to speak, where a letter can be slipped, or slipped onto. 
Not your plain on envelope. I love the way it came out and I used TONS of 
products from the store. 

I hope you like the project. I also hope that you decide to jazz up 
your next "Snail Mail" letter.

Travel album: The process continues

Hi everyone!

Pi back again and continuing with my travel album.
You can find the set up plan HERE and the first process video HERE.

This week I found I was more true to my own style.

In short, I have learned that I don't have the time to overthink or put to much effort in finding the perfect balance or even a straight line. Thus I have been forced to embrace the imperfection.
I have learned that in the end I'm glad that I have the story told, rather than focus on everything that could have been better layout-wise.

My goal is to fill the pockets and I do that by starting with the largest photos and continuing with the smaller. Then I add my jounaling, then I add my filler cards and last I embellish.

However, I do only manage to print a couple of photos at the time, otherwise I will forget how I intended to put them together. Thus, pending back and fourth between the steps I just told you about.

Spring Daisies

Hi  everyone, Steph Ackerman here on this lovely Spring Thursday.  And finally the sun is shining and there is a hint of the flowers that are yet to come.

Thinking about spring has lead me to creating cards using Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp set and the coordinating Delightful Daisy Die.



The flowers and leaves were stamped and die cut using the coordinating dies - makes perfect cuts every time.  The flowers and leaves were painted with  Prima Marketing Acrylic Paints and allowed to dry.  They easily formed into shape once dry using the Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.



The background of the card is a sheet of Bazzill Gumdrop cardstock.  Pattern papers were cut into triangles and placed on the cardstock, then May Arts Sheer Ribbon was wrapped around the panel before adhering to the card.   Using a brad I adhered the flower to the ribbon and placed the leaves underneath.

Travel album: The documenting begins

Hi everyone!

I'm here with a process video of the first pages of my travel album.
You can find the set up plan HERE.



For the first page you'll see me quickly pimp some of the snap cards.
Then the second page is mainly photos and I change the card I put there in the set up part.
I have some trouble placing the letters "CINQUE TERRE" and that takes me forever, I almost gave up. I have printed a map to the snap page which I want to highlight, so I added a geotag where we started. I also used some die cuts from the snap pack and enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed the process and will come back for more next week.
I'm having a bit of stage fright, when the camera is recording, so I'll  see how I proceed :)
