Team Tuesday - I Like You. You're Weird with Jeanne Streiff

Happy Tuesday!

I love to make backgrounds.

There are so many great stamps, inks and paints out there to use along with my Mini MISTI that I rarely use patterned papers anymore. Sometimes I just make backgrounds so I usually have a pile around to play with when I am ready to make a project.

Today's project uses a background I made with my Mini MISTIColor Burst and stamps from Technique Junkies.

I made a simple white card and then stamped my flower image (Rose Doodles) and phrase (Double Weird Sayings) with black Archival ink and then sponged some blue and yellow ink around the flowers. I used the same blue ink to splatter. 

I stamped my flowers on a Color Burst panel (Alizarin Crimson, Lemon Yellow, Orange ). The MISTI is fabulous for stamping on textured watercolor paper. Stamp as many times as you need to get a perfect image.

I colored the leaves and stem with markers and the cut out my flowers and layered them on my card.

Like these stamps? I have a 10% off code for you!

Taylored Expressions: Card 1

In April, I was invited to teach a workshop at Taylored Expressions.  The staff there is amazing and has a passion for cardmaking.  The store is just beautiful and full of color.

This was one of the cards that we made in the workshop.  The Graphic Greetings Birthday stamp is a block of sentiments.  I did a masking technique for the different colors.  I will post the other cards later in the month.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the video.

Oh, Hello with Ilina

Hi stampers!
Welcome to another Team Tuesday. Ilina here today with a card using the just released Concord and 9th new Oh Hello Turnaobut set that is made to work with the Original MISTI.
For my card I am using some Neenah white 80lb card stock and I stamped the image 3 times : A Muse Margarita pigment ink, then Mermaid pigment ink and the last one is using Versafine Onyx Black ink pad.
Next I stamped the sentiment on black card stock using Versamark ink and embossed in white and cut it with the just released Globe die set.

Next I adhered the panel onto black card base, adhered the sentiment and added some black Nuvo Crystal drops
Watch the video below, to see how this card came to be.
