Daily Art Practice – Day 47

Hello and happy Thursday! Today´ s art piece is done and dusted again. I did a bigger (full) page this time again.

I used Distress Paints again on the background, then added the daily almanac piece as a circle and plenty of asemic writing behind it.

On top of all that there is date stamp rows – very random and some dried out baby wipe fabric ruffled and a fortune cookie sentiment on top of that.

The lady on top is a Dina Wakley stamp and was colored with Distress Crayons. The rays are a Tim Holtz Sizzix die-cut metallic paper that got inked with alcohol inks. Finally also some circles made with Gelatos and Stabilo all black.

Today´ s stamp sentiment is again by Klartext (Denglisch) and translates to: “Look at them go!”. Wishing you a fabulous day,

Good Stuff layout – Dani Peuss

Hallo ihr Lieben! (*for English, just hit the translate button on the right sidebar*) Ich habe wieder gescrappt!! Dieses Mal ein Layout mit gaaanz viele Herzchen :).

Die Papiere stammen wieder aus dem Dani Peuss Februar Scrapbooking Hauptkit und die sind meine absoluten Favoriten seit langem. Ich mag die fröhlichen, bunten Farben, die mich an Zuckerwatte erinnern, wirklich sehr. So habe ich mich dazu entschieden, ein Valentinstags-Layout zu gestalten. Dazu gibt es auch ein Start-To-Finish-Video auf meinem YouTube Kanal & hier natürlich auch :).

Am Hintergrund habe ich Distress Paints in hellpink, hellgelb und minzgrün verwendet. Alle Links zu den Produkten findet ihr übrigens in der Auflistung am Ende dieses Postings.

Die Herzchen habe ich mit den Elizabeth Craft Designs Herz-dies und meiner Big-Shot Die-Cutting-Maschine geschnitten. Der Stickerbook, der im Kit inkluidert ist, ist übrigens genial, da sind so viele verschiene Arten von Sticker drinnen. Wirklich etwas für jeden Anlass. Dann dazu die Ephemera und man ist gleich im Embellishment-Himmel ;-). Das sieht man auf meinem Layout auch gut, dass ich dort angekommen war ;-).

Das Stempelset, den ich verwendet habe, ist übrigens auch von Dani Peuss (Klartext Nr. 1243 “Die Story“). Da habe ich den Spruch einfach passend gemacht, in dem ich die überflüssigen/unnötigen Wörter einfach durchgestrichen habe.

Ich hoffe mein Layout inspiriert Euch auch zum Scrappen!! Wünsche Euch viel Spass dabei!

Trifecta cardmaking in monochromatic style – STAMPlorations

Hello and happy Sunday! Starting this October, you will see me create cards with step-by-step and/or video tutorials using the STAMPlorations 3S-products. What is that, you ask? It´ s Stamps, Stencils and Stickers -> 3 S´ s – also known as Trifecta cards. Today is my first share and I am sooo excited! See, these are the things I really, really like to use! You know by now that I love to use stencils – always have and always will. And stamping, well, there is hardly any piece I make that I don´ t add stamping onto. And clear stickers are just a perfect addition to my design style. I hope you will enjoy my Trifecta posts throught this design team year!

For my first feature post I´ ve decided to use just one of each products and create 3 different cards with the exact same products. Slight modifications in color and placement result in different kind of cards. And still they all are easy to do and even make multiples of, while you are at it anyway.

On my first card I used the Discs stencil with transparent gloss texture paste mixed together with Mustard Seed Distress Paint to create the texture to the card background that I had previously misted with yellow spray ink. Next I added stamping into the open area of the background using the Hello You stamp set and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide. After that I took a piece of yellow patterned paper and stamped and fussy cut the camera images and arranged them onto the card background. The stamp set used here was again the Hello You set. For finishing touches I added a Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiment that I had matted with the same patterned paper I used on the camera images. After finishing all the steps I adhered the paper onto a slimline sized card base and outlined the edges with a black pen for more contrast. 

On my second card I used the same Discs stencil with transparent gloss texture paste mixed together with Peeled Paint Distress Paint to create the texture to the card background that I had previously misted with kiwi-toned spray ink. Next I added some stamping into the open areas of the background using the Hello You stamp set and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide.  However, I didn´t like the look of it, so I changed my plan and just added more stamp ink with a water tank brush over the stamped areas (good thing, this ink is water reactive, so you can correct as you go!) to create different toned green areas to the background. I also did some paint splatters on top of it all with the Distress Paint tone I used with the paste previously. That adds nice contrast to the background and pleased my eye more than the randomly stamped sentiments! After that I took a piece of yellow patterned paper and stamped and fussy cut the camera images and arranged them onto the card background. The stamp set used here was again the Hello You set. For finishing touches I added a Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiment that I had matted with the same patterned paper I used on the camera images. After finishing all the steps I adhered the paper onto a slimline sized card base and outlined the edges with a black pen for more contrast. 

On my third card I used the same Discs stencil with transparent gloss texture paste mixed together with Pcked Raspberry Distress Paint to create the texture to the card background that I had previously misted with light pink-toned spray ink. Next I added some stamping into the open areas of the background using the Hello You stamp set and Bubble Gum mid-tone shadow ink.  After that I took a piece of pink patterned paper and stamped and fussy cut the camera images and arranged them onto the card background. The stamp set used here was again the Hello You set. For finishing touches I added a Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiment that I had matted with the same patterned paper I used on the camera images. After finishing all the steps I adhered the paper onto a slimline sized card base and outlined the edges with a black pen for more contrast. 
Here is a quick photo step-by-step for deteails: 

Step 1: Add spray ink in green, pink and yellow tones to slimline size cut white cardstock.

Step 2: Mix Distress paint in Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint with Transparent Texture Paste and apply thru the Discs-stentil onto the backgrounds. Notice how everything is tone-in-tone for a more homogenous look. Also if you add the stencilng only partially, you can create a totally different backgorund look!

Step 3: Now add stamping with the Hello You stamp set to the background using stamp inks in similar tones. I used Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber, Bubble Gum Shadow Ink and Moved Lawn Distress Oxide to add to the monochromatic look of the background.

Step 4: Stamp camera images on matching toned patterned papers and fussy cut them. Then arrange onto the card and adhere on place. Finish the pieces off with Shine Bright Clear Sticker sentiments and adhere the finished pieces onto card bases. 

You now have yourself three monochromatic slimline cards created with Stamps, Stencils and Stickers (Trifecta magic!) and even though we used the exact same products on all three cards, the results are still very different due to used colorus and placement.

And pssst… if you now want to stock up on your STAMPlorations stash, here is a nice discount code for you to use:

Thanks for stopping by today – I hope I could inspire you to try out the 3S-combination yourself!! Have fun!

Art Journal Page

Hello and Happy Friday! Are you ready for a creative weekend? I sure am! The sun is finally starting to show itself a bit more which immediately uplifts me and get´s my creative mojo going! Today I am sharing an art journal page with you which actually would be perfect for a Monday post – sentiment wise, that is :).

Here is what I did:
For this page I used plenty of  STAMPlorations stencils with Distress Paints, some gesso, Posca pens and rub-ons by 7gypsies.

There is also a stamp sentiment by VivaLasVegaStamps hidden in between various layers. It says: I am still a rat in a cage… Also the star stamp is by them too. The flies on the page are by 7gypsies – Parchment Rub-Ons from the Grow set.  The stencils I used are my own designs; Cornflower, RagRug, Dream Flower, I just went with my feelings while creating this page and this is the end result of my intuitive creating session. I´m already Looking forward to the weekend and some creative time!!!

Wishing you all a lovely, crafty weekend!!
