MFP's Tutorial Time 73 ~ Two Toned Resist

Our tutorial this week is just wonderful and this is definitely something I will do again and again. Some mixed media going on here!  I used Cracked Hello and Dogwood Blossoms to make this creation. I stamped the cracked bg in black and sponged on ballet blue, daffodil delight and cameo coral. In versa mark I stamped my dogwood blossoms and embossed in clear. Next, I sponged not quite navy over entire paper and wiped off excess with a tissue to make the blossoms stand out. I did the cracked bg again for the butterfly and embossed in clear but didn't like it so I did it again in black and embossed entire butterfly. The bottom layer was done without the resist part. This was so fun. Head on over to MFPspeedytv and to check it out!  You could win the stamp set pictured below.

TTSTV 72 on MFP speedy tv-Stamping with fruit

Okay, so my first card I LOVE...though it took some tries using my apple slice.  I was so excited over it, I forgot to emboss anything over top of it. If I had to do over again, I probably would use the group of lemons in this set embossed in silver. My second card was my first attempt with the apple slice. Obviously, I had too much ink on the apple...Though I love the end result.

MFP's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop-Day 1-Journal


Here is my submission for this fun blog hop.  I used a composition notebook, added my designer paper, cut to mostly fit and then sanded the edges. Added some liquid pearls for the berries and the sentiment was done in gold embossing powder. I used an old die cut tree....I have NO idea where it came from and used a bit of always artichoke and some clear ep to brighten it up. I haven't decided if I will keep this or give to my friend.

Have fun,

And head on over to the other DT's blogs

Just Us Girls #211, Diane's free digi

My gf MariLynn turned me onto the Jugs challenge and to Diane Noble's beautiful free divi!  Thanks, Diane. I had so much fun creating this. I scrapped some super thick lace that I attempted painting with watered down acrylic paint in mushroom. I ended up using a doily and stickler...among other things!  Thanks for the fun challenge.
I used MFP's set Glad Glads to create this card which is 6x6

TTSTV 71- Clay embellishments

o
Good morning and happy Friday! Our challenge today is lots of fun! Clay embellishments and surprisingly, I didn't have to travel to the store to get some. Though my girls are grown, I found some in our little odds and ends craft drawer in the kitchen! I stamped my panda with staz-on and let him dry and then trimmed around him.
Head on over to MFPspeedytv to play along and you might win the stamp set below!

TTSTV 70-Faux cloisonne by Ginny

I have to tell you all that this hasn't been my week with blogger or yahoo. This is the first chance I've had to get this card posted correctly!  Ginny's tutorial this week is faux cloisonné and I LOVE it. It reminds me of my mom as she loved cloisonne jewelry. Head on over to mfpspeedytv to check it out.
I stamped it in versa mark and embossed in gold. Next, I used pearlescent watercolors to paint it, fussy cut it out and placed a clear layer of shine over it.

Have a great weekend.

I did this for last Friday's mixability challenge on SCS...to do whatever we wanted. I swiped my spectrum pad over white CS and then whitewashed a thin layer of white acrylic paint, let that dry and swiped some more of the spectrum pad over top. Also done for the Free for all which was texture.
For this creation, I used some old SU! dp, stamped my scarecrow on white and paper pieced his hat, pants, arms and hands.
