Today’s Card: Hello There

Almost every time I work on an specific project, I like to create a couple of variations of it. Today I am sharing  another version of the card that I shared Monday on the Hero Arts blog.  This card also features the Potted Succulent and Small Potted Succulent woodblock stamps:

For this card I heat-embossed the images with Copper Embossing powder.  Then, I colored the Potted Succulents with Chameleons pens. Additionally,  I die cut the shapes with their matching frame cuts. It is hard to see, but I also put FSJ Journey Glaze over some of the leaves.

To create the background, I white-embossed a woodblock stamp called Kelly’s Wood Grid over a white card stock panel. After that, I carefully colored some of the tiny squares with markers, and I also put FSJ Journey Glaze on them. It kind of reminds me of those tiny tiles that are used  in kitchens as backsplash 😉

Anyway, after that I adhered the panel over a card base, and then I die cut a piece of foam with the Succulent frame cuts to add dimension (I explained a little trick for that on the HA video, click >>>HERE<<< if you want to see it). I adhered the potted succulents over the panel, and I finished my card adding a simple sentiment from a set called Many Everyday Messages.

RG Celebra’tions Card

Hi! I am  back today to share a card using the Celebra’tions Collection by Richard Garay. I like a lot this collection because it has so many products that you can mix and match to create cards, layouts, party favors, etc. You name it! 😉

mg_celebrationscard2

To create this card I  made a card base with Cool Caribbean card stock. Then, I adhered a patterned paper rectangle on top as a background. I like the happy colors of the patterned paper of this collection!

Next, I used a stamp & die set called  Special Day  to create the main elements of my card. I stamped the balloon images using different colors of ink as well as the banners images (FSJ Banana Cream, FSJ Watermelon Fusion, FSJ Cool Pool, FSJ Huckleberry Fusion).

After that, I die cut all the shapes with their matching dies, and I arranged them on top of a Whip Cream card stock rectangle. I adhered the balloons with some Journey Foam squares.  Additionally, I hand-draw the balloons strings and I stamped and die cut the sentiment.

Finally, I matted the panel with vellum paper, adhered it over the card base, and I embellished my project with some gemstones and Enamel Elements.

FSJ Planner + RG Make Amazing Happen

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am back today to share another project using Fun Stampers Journey and Richard Garay products. I recently received the new FSJ Journey Girl Planner, and I have to confess that I was a little nervous about using it. It is so nice and neat that I did not want to mess it up. I have seen how other crafters make a good use of it, and they are so creative when it is time to make shine their planners, so I was a little bit intimidated.

Well, after seen so many fantastic planner ideas on the internet,  I felt inspired and I created a divider for my planner using a couple of stamp sets from the Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay, and this is how it turned out:

mg_planner6

I made a double sided divider using the original divider as a guide (the one that it came with my planner). I am including the easy steps and supplies below so you can see the process.

plannersteps3

1. Make a rectangle from Whip Cream card stock using original divider measurements as a guide. Stamp sentiment with Berry Black ink and Flowers with different colors.
2 & 3. Use a mask to block flowers, and then stamp leaves.
4. Stamp a couple more leaves and small flowers randomly.

plannersteps2

5. Laminate divider. Trim excess with craft knife. Round Corners.
6. Use original divider as a template to draw where holes need to be punched.
7. Punch holes.
8. Connect holes to edge by trimming a small piece with scissors. Now the divider is ready for your planner.

Additionally, I decorated part of the planner with the Make Amazing Printed papers, and little pieces of decorative tape. I used plain 2×2″ sticky notes and I stamped flower images on them.

I am still in the learning process of the planner world, so I have yet to use paper clips and other items to embellish my planner. As time passes, I’ll keep on utilizing my planner and planning my weeks more creatively!

RG Journey Girl Locket

One of the things I love about my Journey Girl Locket is that I can always give it my personal touch. You can use it to display some of the pretty charms  that are available for purchase or  maybe to display more personal things like a picture or something that you have created. Tomorrow is going to be St. Patrick’s Day, so I thought it would be fun to make a shamrock for my  locket . Check it out:
