CAS Fall Challenge 118

Good evening - spent 3 hours today driving with my son who is learning how to drive.  The one nice thing about driving this time of year, is all of those beautiful fall colors - it is just so beautiful out there!!  We saw lots of deer out too, it was a perfect day for a drive!

This was a perfect challenge for today's crafting project:  Clean and Simple Fall/Halloween Challenge #118

I used Club Scrap's newest kit 'Scandanavia' with their adorable Fox and Owl's to create these two cards!  Nothing fancy here - just clean and simple.

2017 Club Scrap Retreat ATC Cards

Well it is RETREAT time again - my absolutely FAVORITE time of the year!!!   I look forward to this trip more than any trip of the year.  I get to see all my favorite girls from Club Scrap in living color and real life!!  I get to hug and laugh and even shed a few tears (usually at the end when we have to say our goodbyes) with the best gals you will ever meet!!  We have so much fun - there is a ton of fun workshops, gorgeous Club scrap paper to caress, and lots of pampering!!

The first night we exchange ATC's with at least 6 others as sort of a meet & greet activity - I created a few extra, as I have many more friends that I have accumulated over the years!!  Here is the ATC I created this year.

Supply List:
Card board (I recycled old boxes)
Gesso
Crackle Paint
Bamboo Skewers
Hemp fiber
Rubberstamps
Ink

Instructions:
Cut 2.5x3.5 pieces of cardboard from old boxes.
 Paint card board with gesso.
 Cut (3) slits out of short sides, and (4) slits out of long sides - vary what the slits look like, as shown:


Use the "book page" stamp on chop sticks in black ink, then cut to about 3inches long, then ink with light brown ink, as shown.
 I then cut out some Fleurs de lis (rubberstamp script image and ink with brown ink).  I then glued 3 chopsticks together and added a Fleur de lis on top, let dry.
 Add a wrapping of Hemp fiber around the chop sticks.
 Rubberstamp sentiment on white cardstock.  Cut out each line, ink edges.  Adhere chopstick bundle and sentiment to ATC as shown.

Orchard Blog Hop

Orchard Blog Hop!!


So today I am working with Club Scrap's digital Orchard kit. These photos are all of my son who is a senior this year. We did a PRE session, just to do a trial, to see if *I* could do his senior photos - so these are from that session.  His real photo session, he cut his hair and has super short hair and looks like a entirely different kid altogether.  BUT I still loved these photos - so I scrapbooked them - digitally using this awesome kit!

September Artist Team Challenge

September Artist Team Challenge

September's challenge is to incorporate watercolor techniques into your projects. We could use any technique that results in a “watercolor” feel. I found a cool technique I wanted to try where you use 'alcohol' to repel the watercolor, pushing the color away leaving a lighter tint of color exposed. The results were gorgeous.

Supplies:
Watercolor paper
Dylusions spray
Alcohol - I used nail polish remover
Stamps
Black ink
White gel pen


Instructions:

1. You are going to want to hurry and do the next two steps quickly - so have step 2 supplies all ready to go, right after step 1. You don't want to the dylusions spray to dry before doing step 2. Spritz watercolor paper with 2 shades of dylusions spray.
2. While the dylusions spray is still wet, put nail polish remover in small dish and use toothbrush or Q-tip to spritz or dab alcohol onto the wet spots, the color will move and leave cool designs as shown:
 3. Once dry, stamp images in black ink.
 4.  Using white gel pen, outline stamped images.
 Add sentiment and mat card.

Here is the another three versions I made using same technique:

Happy Birthday Dad!!

Howdy Bloggers - Today I wanted to share the card I made for my dad's birthday - Today we are celebrating his 75th birthday!!  Its not his actual birthday today - I didn't want to post the card before I actually gave it to him, which would be today.  Today is the day when we could all get together for a big party, so I am excited to see everyone and have a fun day!

I started by dry embossing some card stock from the Club Scrap Garden Shed kit.
 Then I used rubberstamps from the Club Scrap Lakes kit, and stamped as shown:
 I then, outlined various spots with white gel pen to accent:
 Then I put the whole kit and caboodle together as shown:
 I made a matching envelope:

Club Scrap Lagoon Blog Hop

Lagoon Blog Hop!!

Hello and welcome to today's blog!!  It is a tough one here today - as I sit here typing - my house smells like SKUNK!!  Yes this morning at 3:30 am my hubby got up to go to work and walked the dogs and one of my two dogs got skunked, then proceeded to tear through the house into our bedroom and hid under our bed.  

Anyways, I was abruptly woken up to lights being thrown on and hubby grabbing the dog and cussing out that darn skunk....

I got up and set the air purifier out into the main room running on full bore, set up the diffuser with some lemon oil running, while hubby started washing the dog.  

Apparently the dog didn't get sprayed too bad, because a single bath seemed to do the job 

(thank you thank you thank you).  

BUT my house still smells - not HORRIBLE - but as I sit here - it SMELLS....

ok, enough of that...

So today I am working with Club Scrap's Lagoon kit.  I created a journal page in my mixed media journal.  There is a lot of steps to this page with a number of stages where you need to wait for drying time - but I really like the way it turned out in the end.  The photos were hard to take, the reflection of the lights on the metallic paints made it difficult to get good photos.  I really liked the saying from the rubberstamp, so by using the digital kit, I was able to print it out separately, enlarge it, and use it in the journal page.


Supply List
Mixed media paper/journal
Gesso
Paint (Teal, Yellow, Copper, Silver)
Rubberstamps
Modge Podge
Gel medium
Color burst
Versamark ink
Embossing powder (verdigris - regular - Inkxpressions - Creative beginnings)
Charcoal Pencil
Stencil

Instructions:
Cover mixed media paper with white gesso, then paint over with teal acrylic paint, while still a little wet, wipe off some of the teal paint with paper towel.


Paint some yellow acrylic paint in various spots as shown:

Once acrylic paint is completely dry, use versamark ink and stamp 'seaweed' images, heat emboss using verdigris embossing powder as shown:

Stamp "circles" image from Club Scrap Pattern Play kit with blue acrylic paint in various spots as shown:

Tear up some paper and stamp with "book" image from Clubscrap Literature kit and ink edges as shown:

Adhere pieces to page in various spots as shown using bookbinding glue or modge podge:

Use gesso and acrylic paints and your finger to go around edges of torn pieces to blend them onto page as shown:

Punch out a bunch of circles and then stamp "book" images from Literature kit as shown:

Adhere to page using modge podge/bookbinding glue as shown, trim off the overlap:

Once dry, outline circles with a charcoal pencil - use your finger to rub the charcoal, will give sort of a shadow effect.  You can go around torn pieces as well.


Using Clubscrap stencil from Dec 2011 - I mixed some Color Burst powder with Gel medium to create little yellow circles in various spots around the page, as shown.  Let dry.

Using Club Scrap DIGITAL kit - print out images.

Cut out images and tentatively place on journal - once you have them where you want them, adhere using modge podge/book binding glue.  Trim pieces that overlap page.

 Use acrylic paints, watered down to fairly think paint to color in the printed images as shown:

 Outline the 'saying' cutouts with copper paint and the 'image' cutouts with silver paint.

You can't really appreciate the metallic paints in the photos - they look way better in real life - but they do look pretty snazzy!!  Here is the final - I ended up coloring the fish more teal than yellow and adding more accent to each of the cutouts and spreading with my fingers to blend.
