Happy Birthday - Chipboard Quotation

Candy here and today I have a card that features the Happy Birthday - Chipboard Quotation and the Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circles SM - Turquoise Rhinestones.  The design paper for this 6" x 6" card is from Heartfelt Creations Enchanted Mum Paper Collection.

I added Viva Decor 3D Stamp Paint in Metallic Violet to the Happy Birthday - Chipboard Quotation using a sponge.  I then added an Iridescent Rhinestone for the dot on the "i".

I adhered the Purple Sleek Strips 12" Rhinestones, cutting to fit, to the design paper.  Then I die cut green and yellow Bazzill cardstock using Spellbinders Celtic Medallion 2. The Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circles SM - Turquoise Rhinestones fit around the outer edge perfectly and the Nestabling Heart - Circles Hot Pink Rhinestones fit around the inner circle.  I added a Turquoise Rhinestone to the center of the Medallion.

Have a great day!

Heat Embossing your Title!

Susie here today with a mixed media layout featuring a title made with one of Want2Scrap's Fancy Chipboard Words and a little embossing powder!  
I created a textured background using modeling paste and the brick stencil from Want2Scrap, using ink to blend it into the background.  I layered on papers and embellishments before topping things off with pictures of my mother-in-law from 2 very different times of her life.

I created the title by applying dark brown ink to the Fancy Chipboard Word and then added clear heat embossing. It is so easy to alter Want2Scrap chipboard using paints, inks and embossing powders.  You can quickly create a custom embellishment to match your layouts and projects!
I tucked a piece of LeCreme Swirls Finesse behind some ephemera and it is done!

Here's a close up of the photo of my mother-in-law as a young girl.  What a cutie!

Be sure to check out the Want2Scrap onlind store to find the perfect chipboard title for your layout!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!

Want2Scrap Nice Normal Family

Hello Want2Scrap fans - it is Linda here, sharing a card using Want2Scrap bling - and one of the fun stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle - Chicken Run stamp set. 

I have inked the image using Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko Memento Inks along with a White Gel Pen to add some highlights to the Chickens.  The green grass has been cut using a Die from the Woodlands Mushrooms and adhered using double sided tape and 3D Foam Tape.  The sentiment has been stamped to the top portion of the Pierced Ovals. 

The image has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Ovals .  Gesso is applied to a Stencil to add texture, then it has been sponged using various inks.  I have used my sponge daubers and not added any extra ink - they are usually 'fully loaded'!

The patterned paper has been embossed using Donna Salazar Designs Chicken Wire Em-bossing Folder and lightly sanded with a sanding block. This has been layered onto a precut card base using A2 Matting Basics B Card Creator Ribbon and a double bow have been added, the image layered onto the patterned paper using 3D Foam Squares.

I have added some of the Baby Bling Rhinestones - Silver - 100 Count - 2.5mm randomly through the stenciling to add that shimmer that only Want2Scrap bling can.  Beautiful Bling Borders has been trimmed to each corner, along with Baby Bling in brown.

  • Sparkle N Sprinkle: Chicken Run stamp set
  • Spellbinders: S2-194 Woodland Mushrooms; S5-132 A2 Matting Basics B Card Creator; SCD-007 Celebrations Pierced Ovals;  SCP-014 Cuddle Cream Paper;

Mixed Media Canvas Blooms with Bling!

Susie here today with another mixed media canvas that is blooming with Want2Scrap bling!

I created the background on my mini canvas using Violet and Ultramarine Blue Color Bursts pigment powder.  I started by misting the canvas with water then I tapped out a tiny bit of each powder.   As the color started to develop I tilted the canvas back and forth.  I also used a wet paintbrush to move the water color around a little bit.  I even had fun with my heat gun, blowing the color around a bit more before finally drying the canvas.

I used an adhesive alpha to add the word "bloom".

Using a baby wipe, I gently patted the area over and around the letter stickers, removing a layer of color.

When I peeled the letters off, the darker original color reveals the word.

Next I applied purple ink through the Mosaic stencil from Rebecca Baer Designs.

Love the result!!  Now it is ready  for some pictures and embellishments!

As I was working on this canvas, I found that I used way too much water and Color Burst color!  I used a paper towel to wipe the excess up off of my craft mat and quite frankly I decided all of that gorgeous color was to good to waste!

I cut out lots of flowers so I could layer them together and then added an 8mm Orange Rhinestone in the center!

The final touch is a small piece of the Fancy That Bling Border!

Coffee Before Talkie

Hello Want2Scrap fans - it is Linda here, sharing a card using one of the fabulous sets from  Sparkle and Sprinkle who have been so very generous to the Design Team.  Now it has to be said that anything COFFEE has my attention straight away - I just had to have the Espresso Yourself stamp set - and how about that sentiment - LOL - love it!

The base and base layer have been cut/embossed using Spellbinders S5-172 A2 Curved Matting Basics B Creator.  The Sparkle and Sprinkle image has been coloured using Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Markers and cut out by hand/fussy cut.

The Seth Apter Coffee Rings Etched Dies work perfectly with this image and have been cut using brown cardstock.  They have been adhered to the pattered paper using liquid glue.  A little bit of sponging has been added randomly around the coffee rings, accentuating the beautiful Baby Bling Rhinestones Turquoise - 100 Count - 2.5mm.  The Coffee Cup has been popped up on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares

and the sentiment - I believe it speaks for itself!! Wink:wnk

Bling On the Canvas!

Susie here today sharing another mixed media canvas featuring Want2Scrap bling!
I started my canvas with an Ultramarine Blue Color Burst watercolor background.  The cute little umbrella image is from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Splish Splash stamp set.  I heat embossed the image with Black Opaque Embossing Powder.
Next I wanted to try something a little different.  I used clear embossing ink and stamped the "Splish Splash" sentiment all over the canvas.  I sprinkled Waterscape Semi-Transparent glitter on the canvas and was pleased to find that it stuck to the canvas!
I wish I could tell you my experiment was a success...but I can't.  I knew I needed to secure the glitter somehow.  First I tried Workable Fixative.  It kept the glitter from falling off but was not a permanent solution as you could brush the glitter off.  Next I tried Acrylic Sealer Spray and it did not work either.  I ended up brushing off as much glitter as I could and then re-stamping and heat embossing with the Platinum Embossing Powder. I heat embossed the sentiment across the bottom of the canvas in Black Opaque Embossing Powder and then I reached for my bling!

Want2Scrap Teardrop Bling looks so cute sprinkled all over this canvas like raindrops!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!

Want2Scrap's Rainbow of Bling!

Hello!  Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a mixed media canvas that features a rainbow of Want2Scrap bling!

I started by creating a water color pallet with 5 bright shades of Color Bursts.

I free handed a simple arch shape from the upper right of the canvas to the lower left.  I started at the bottom with purple, letting each color dry before I added the next band.

The Design Team recently had an opportunity to choose some products from Sparkle N Sprinkle, one of our Cross Promotional Partners.  I fell in love with the silhouetted images and sentiments on the Splish Splash Rubber Stamp set!  I stamped and heat embossed one of the images and a sentiment with Black Opaque Embossing Powder.

I collected coordinating colors of bling for each color band of the rainbow.  I didn't actually have yellow in my stash, so I substituted with the Irridescent Rhinestones (which I think are my favorite anyway!)  I chose the 3mm size from each of the packages.  The fact that the bling is self-adhesive made it really easy to accent a portion of each color band with approximately 10 gems!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
