Snippet busting mixed media style ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  We’re nearly at the weekend again; I really don’t get how these weeks flash by so quickly lol! 
Whilst I’m here and I remember I want to say welcome to my two lovely new followers Diane and Jo.  I really hope you’ll like/love what I create when I’m playing with card, ink, paints, stamp and anything else I might want to use lol!  If you ever have questions leave me a comment and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can, if you’re easily contactable through Blogger or Google Plus.  If you don’t have an account at either it means I won’t be able to contact you.  So if you have a question make sure you let me know where I can get back in touch with you.

I have a snippets card to share with you today and here it is … 

 
Another little A6 one - I love this one! 
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Tando Creative Challenge Colour pallette


This card was created using snippets from the other cards I’ve shared this week along with  other paper snippets that are in my box.  I stamped the butterfly and coloured her with my lovely Spectrum Noir Aquatints.  I used the inks without diluting them this time and I love how bold and bright the colours are. 

I've enjoyed my week of making cards but I hope to take a break from card making for a week lol!  I'm behind with my MM arch tutorials from Ink Stain Roni, I've not done many experiments recently and I need to sit down and play just for me: for my journal. So that is the plan for Sunday.  

Tomorrow and Saturday will be busy with a quick tidy and dust before Luke (younger brother), Bethan and mum come for dinner on Saturday evening.  I'm so looking forward to that.  Two weeks have passed since the last time brother and Bethan visited and although it’s gone quickly I have missed them.  Part of that is because I know that Luke & Bethan aren’t only fifteen minutes away anymore and for some odd reason I’ve found that really hard to cope with – hopefully it will improve with time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen xx

A CAS card Mixed Media style ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  Well my title says it all today.  I have a card I’ve created following a challenge sketch.  I was playing with a NBUS set of Sheena Douglass stamps, my lovely Stamplorations stamps, acrylic paint, a Staz On IP and a die cut scrap of paper to create my own mask.  Here it is …

An A6 card this time! 

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
I don’t ‘do’ CAS cards normally yet I loved creating this one!


When I saw the sketch at Stamplorations I really, really, really wanted to play along.  However I originally had the idea that I would die cut a piece of DP and stick it to the card and then over stamp and heat emboss.  Last night I finally had the time to whip up a couple of cards.  I had the Spellbinder’s Classic Circle dies out because I had used them on the card I created for the DCWV challenge.  There was a lot of wet supplies on my desk and the Americana acrylic paint was one of those supplies and I had a ‘what if’ moment lol!  So I die cut a circle from a scrap of old paper which was going to be recycled and I grabbed stencil tape, Cut N Dry Foam, a snippet of white card, and the DecoArt Americana acrylic paint.  Once I had applied the paint through the ‘aperture’ I grabbed another white snippet and did the same.  I popped both of them to one side to dry whilst I made sure all the paint was used and cleaned from my non stick mat.
 Next is my saying I am a stamp addict lol!  I have two boxes on my desk.  One of the boxes is jammed with new stamps that were (a) challenge wins or (b) stamps purchased with birthday money last year or, finally, (c) Christmas presents, lol.  The other box has stamps in that I have used but not much so they are out to be played with before being sorted and stored. 
I am embarrassed by how many new stamps there are however if I won more I would grab them with grubby painted and inked fingers lol!  The larger box with NBUS stamps isn’t bulging as much as it was previously.  Although previously I had two boxes full of stamps waiting to be used lol!  I do have quite a lot of stamps into the use again soon box but I’m not too worried about that – because they have, at least, been inked at least once lol.  So now maybe you can understand why I don’t buy any paper pads right now.  I’m still trying to stick to my 2012 pledge of use it up before purchasing more papers.  It’s actually, mostly, been quite easy to do and that’s because of how bad my back is rather than not wanting them any more!  I am a norty girl lol!!  Or rather a norty middle aged female!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x

Get your sunglasses on ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week has started well.  I’ve another of my experiments to share with you today and it's very bright!  I loved creating this card, I got to use up some old stash too and here it is …

 
A 5" x 7" card 
A final look

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:

Recently I took part in a blog hop and won a stamp set (it also contained a stencil and a mask) and a Dreamweaver stencil.  When I saw the stamp set I had won I was, embarrassed to admit this but I like to be honest with you all, disappointed as it is so completely not what I thought I would win and not my usual style.  I wouldn’t have purchased this stamp set for myself and that is also a blessing, well to me it is.  However I am stubborn.  I was determined to try the stamps out.  I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this stamp set is grunge style and I really thought I’d loathe it.  Now you all know what I’m going to say next, come on, be honest you know you do lol!  I love it!  I knew the stencil and mask element would be very useful for me but I’ve fallen in love with the stamp set too!  See those large blobby dots – they are one of the stamps (there are two more) they are one of the stamps and I’m so excited about playing with the other two now.  As soon as I can I will be grabbing my paints and ink pads and having more fun lol!

The painted part of this card started out as a rather dull piece of card that I had inked with Distress IP, but I hadn’t inked it heavily so it was a tad blah, well to me it was lol!  I grabbed my lovely DecoArt Americana paints and slapped the vibrant blue acrylic paint over the card.  I normally dilute these paints with white acrylic paint because these colours are bold, almost neon.  However this time I grabbed a piece of Cut N Dry foam and added a smooth coat of blue paint and then used the stencil with the pink acrylic paint.  Once dry I grabbed the blobby stamp and over stamped with an old Brilliance multi colour IP.  Because I am trying to organise and edit my old stash and I was amazed to find that this  Brilliance IP  is still really juicy!  I didn’t want this piece of card to be glossy so I took my heat gun and dried the ink.

Several years ago I won some die cuts from the lovely Lee, aka Craftyloops, and I have finally started using them, lol, it’s all this sorting and editing of stuff: I have found a lot of shapes (especially flowers) some of which I die cut ready to use and then completely forgotten about them.  So these die cuts turned up recently and as I had some paint left on my craft mat I painted them with the acrylic paints too.  I rolled the flowers and applied glue to those and I over stamped with the Brilliance ink on the flat daisies too.  A snippet of left over DP, some ribbon from the box I won from Hazel and I was done!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x

A couple of stamps that I'm crazy about right now ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend was lovely and your week has started well.  On today’s project I have used a stamp set I recently won and a small Visible Image Butterfly stamp that was also a win from one of their Facebook Challenges.  I played with stamps, paint and ink to create this card …
  
A little A6 one! 

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Unruly PaperArts Challenge April Prompt Inspired by the photograph


Recently I took part in a blog hop and won a Stampendous stamp set (it also contained a stencil and a mask) and a Dreamweaver stencil.  When the stamp set arrived I was, embarrassed to admit this but I like to be honest with you all, a little disappointed.  It is not what I thought I had won and most definitely not my style. 
To be blunt I wouldn’t have purchased this stamp set for myself and that is also a blessing, well to me it is.  I am stubborn and I was determined to try this set of stamps out before completely ‘writing them off’ so to speak.  I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but this stamp set is grunge style and I really thought I’d loathe it.  
You know what I’m going to say next, come on, be honest you know you do, lol, I love this stamp.  I knew the stencil and mask elementwould be very useful but this first stamp I have fallen in love with, lol.  The large blobby dots, they are one of them; there are two more waiting to be played with.  Now I’m excited about stamping with them and as soon as I’m able I’ll be grabbing my paints and ink pads and having more fun lol!
The strip of dotty card that is in the middle was one I created using Cut N Dry foam to colour the card.  It’s a technique I’ve come to love because it’s easy and quick.  It’s made a big difference to how my painted and stamped card looks once dry.  Using it with paint/s gives a smooth finish, dries quickly, and because no water is used the card doesn't warp.  Also it’s a technique I recently learnt playing along with the PaperArtsy Challenges.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week  ttfn Karen x

Two Cards for Christmas Card Club and Another Card for Rudolph Day ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your weekend is going well.  It’s Christmas Card Club Weekend!  That came around very quickly!  I actually have three cards to share with you today.  The first one is for the last challenge I missed out on because my back was playing up really badly.  This week I’ve tried to catch up which is why I have three cards instead of two and here is what I created for our lovely Rachel’s #8 Vintage Style Christmas Card Challenge …

 
Quick to make and some more stash used up! 

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:

I don’t create vintage or distressed Christmas cards so Rachel’s Challenge was a good experience for me.  I tried to create this card in a vintage style but it didn’t look right, lol, so I grabbed a DIP and added ink on the edges.  I hope this one fits Rachel’s Challenge lol!  One huge bonus is that I finally used up a printed sheet from when I was on a different DT in 2014 and it took me ages to find who the BG was from.
Next up it was our lovely Mrs A’s choice and that was #9 Stars Christmas Card Challenge …
  
A little A6 card great for posting

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:

And finally the card I created for our lovely Mo’s monthly Rudolph Day Christmas Card Challenge …
 
Another one bites the dust!

Lemon & lime with many inks ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was good and your weekend has had a good start. 

You may need to cover your eyes lol!  This card is bright and pops off the page.  However I love these fresh spring colours because they are so vibrant and make me feel warm!  I spent sometime trying to use snippets and ended up this gorgeous card I created with inks, IP’s and Lavinia stamps and here it is …

For a sketch ...

Hello lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was good!  It went very quickly again, lol, but I am so very happy it is nearly the weekend!  I’m having issues when sleeping so I feel completely worn out from that and from the incessant back issues so I am looking forward to having a ‘lie in’ this coming weekend lol!

While I am here and while I remember I want to say welcome to my two lovely new followers.  Please welcome these two ladies Laurie and Pamellia.  I really hope you’ll like/love my playing with card, ink, paints, stamp and anything else I might want to create lol!  If you ever have questions leave me a comment and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can.  I have been asked questions by followers that don’t have blogs and are not on Google Plus, if you have questions please leave a comment and details of where I can contact you.

Today I've a ‘not MM card’ to share, well it was bound to happen sooner rather than later lol!  I used markers to colour the flower and leaf stamps which I sprayed lightly with water before stamping onto a die cut circle and I used ink to stamp the butterfly and sentiment.  It was fun, easy and quick to create and I’ve not had to worry about getting my fingers covered with wet paint, like I normally do.  I have more MM projects on the go as well as some Christmas cards which I’m hoping to share with you soon.  Anyways enough waffle here it is …

 
A 5" x 7" card 
A final look

 Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Inspired by Stamping Challenge IBS93 I copied the sketch & was inspired by the photograph & used three of the colours which are part of the colour scheme

When DH and baby brother swapped the furniture that was in our dining room with the furniture in my craft room I found more 20cm square DP stacks.  I’d completely forgotten about them and as I really like these HOTP papers I’m determined to use them as quickly as possible. 
I still have a wallet of A4 paper which I need to get in the post to a buddy of mine.  However once they’re posted I know I’ve made a big dent in my hoarded designer paper pads this past year.  It’s taken me a long time to get to this point, I think it’s three or four years since I last purchased a paper pad or purchased a magazine because it had a paper pad I liked the look of.
However I’ve quite a lot 15 or 20 cm square papers to use and it’s taken me a long time to get to this point but it feels so good!  The next thing to work on really diligently is to go through my stamps and see if I can sell any of the ones that I no longer use.  Twenty years of purchasing wood mounted stamps, unmounted stamps and clear stamp means I’ve lots to sort!


You will be seeing a flurry of posts over the next week or so.  Because I’ve not been up to creating or finishing my calendar pages and mixed media arch experiments.  I’m determined to get them finished and entered into the regular challenges I like to play along with.  I also need to put some time aside for working in my small journal.  I have been using pencils to sketch in my larger journal and I want to draw and colour some of the images I’m practising right now.  BTW when I say practising I mean that I am obsessively sketching when able lol!  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend  ttfn Karen x

Mixed media with a pretty geisha (photo heavy) ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well.  I have a Brusho Watercolour Crystals background, a snippet of stencilled mop up sheet, stamped and coloured with watercolour pencils pretty geisha, WOC flowers, a leaf, and a snippet of embossing paste and WOW EP experiment.  One heck of a lot of media was used to create this card and it feels so good to use some of the many background experiment card/paper sheets I have created.  Here is today’s card …

  
An A5 card  and the side view
A final look

Just to let visiting DT’s know there are more photographs and a quick description of how I created my masterboards below – so you might want to push on and not read all of this post.

Created for me and especially for these Challenges:

Unusually I’m happy with the end project.  I played around with a lot of the paper/card sheets I had coloured/experimented with.  I wanted the Brusho Crystal background as visible as possible but I also wanted to use some snippets and textured backgrounds I’ve created. 

  

I love the different colours and textures, I am ending up with many mop up papers which I alter or add more media to them.  The photograph above is of a 305mm square piece of paper that I used to mop up my overflow from too much water and too Brusho Watercolour Crystals.  Once the paper was dry I attached a large stencil and used my Versamark IP to dab through the negative parts.  I then removed the stencil and added different colours of EP.  I love the texture, bling and multiple colours from the EP and some shapes/letters/& numbers are more visible.

I used cereal packaging to create the photograph above textured piece.  I cut roughly A4 size and add embossing paste with a knife.  I added a thin layer first and left that to dry before going in and adding a generous amount of the paste then I used a plastic fork to add pattern and texture marks through the top layer of the paste and I threw EP all over it, left it to dry completely before using a heat tool to melt the EP.

Once I was happy with the size of the papers and the way I had arranged them I grabbed some of my WOC flowers and a leaf from The Works and came up with this layout.  The card didn’t look right with just the geisha as the focal point so I played with flowers and leaves to come up with the result I really wanted.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment.  I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x

Mixed media, stencil and stamp ...

Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well and Happy Hump day to all of you!  I have been playing with loads of snippets, card and paper, stencils, paint and felt tip pens again.  Because my fibromyalgia is flaring quite badly right now I have simple and non fussy MM card to share with you.  It was fun to play with the stencil and paints to improve my skills with that and the bonus was that I used two snippets from the never ending snippet pile.  Here it is …
