Life. Live It. featuring 7 Gypsies and Tattered Angels

Today I want to share: Life. Live It. featuring 7 Gypsies and Tattered Angels. This project was because I picked up a mixed media pack of 7 Gypsies paper and a few bottles of Tattered Angels glimmer mists, all of these products are from Canvas Corp Brands.

There were all kinds of papers and some burlap in the mixed media package from 7 Gypsies so I knew I would find something to play with for a fun project. I decided that I would pull some of the zebra note cards that were in my package and cut them in half to make an ATC. An ATC also known as an Artist Trading card measures 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches in size. This is a perfect size to use up scraps of paper, or to try a new technique.

Digging through the package of mixed media paper I found some striped paper and a sheet of stickers. I then remembered that I have a set of label stamps from 7 Gypsies. Of course that caused me to play with the stamps for a while trying to decide which ones I wanted to use. These are the self inking kind and apparently I had not used these in a while so I had to reink and test. I was having fun testing.

Once I decided on which of the stamps I wanted to use, I pulled out some scrap paper and stamped a label and then used a circle punch. I used one of the glimmer mists to alter the zebra paper to have a purple shimmer.

While the Tattered Angels glimmer mist was drying I pulled out another piece of the 7 Gypsies paper and cut a piece of the striped paper for the card. Thinking of how I wanted the design to look I decided that I needed a couple more embellishments.  One was the scalloped edge circle punch from Stampin Up. I used the punch on black paper for my label. And then I found some black brads and some white rose trim.

White glue was used to adhere all of the layers together, adding pop dots under the label. I stamped an ATC label for the back so that it is ready to give away.

I’m very pleased with the selection of papers in the mixed media package from 7 Gypsies. I think I’ll get more of these packs in the future.

So what did you think of my project Life. Live It. featuring 7 Gypsies and Tattered Angels? Does this inspire you to pull out those small bits of papers and make an ATC? Love to see what you create.

Wanted to share what my work station looked like when I got done playing. lol

Chuck Carson Collection for Brutus Monroe Shaker Card

My guest post for the Chuck Carson Collection for Brutus Monroe Shaker Card Featuring the Spooky Selfie stamps as a member of the Inspiration Team.

I’m excited to get to use a new line of stamps for the first time. It’s like when you hear about someone getting an advanced copy of a book or a product before everyone else does. I got stamps before the public so that I could create art! I was stoked!

The other thing I’m exited about? Getting to post my artwork on a mixed media website. These are things I’ve been wanting to do for a long time but kept putting things off. I didn’t seek the opportunity. You can talk about doing something for a long time, but if you don’t take action then you will never reach your goal. Well I took action and I’m working on a long term goal. Follow along my journey and I hope you enjoy while I share art and learn about new products and meet new people.

Go check out this Shaker Card with a video and let me know what you thought.
