How to make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists

Being on the CCB Design team we are doing an experiment. For this I decided: How to make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists would be a perfect opportunity.

How to make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists

The idea, Feb 17th is Random Act of Kindness Day. On this day the Canvas Corp Brands (CCB) Crew Members will create works of art and leave these for others to find.

Each piece of art will have the #CCBRAK written on the art and we will take photos and post to social media. The hope is those that find the works will go on social media and post that the found the items.

So I decided that I would make Mixed Media ATCs with Texture Paste and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Using CCB products.

Join the Canvas Corp Brands Collective to see all of the items that the Creative Members are making.

Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul

Sharing a Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul and Bonus How to make a Laurel Burch Wild Horses Card. Having the opportunity to visit local shops is a wonderful thing. It is good to visit those local shops to help them stay in business.

Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul

For this shopping excursion, I had a mission to find a few supplies for upcoming projects. Looking around Paper Arts I found some really cool looking dies that I knew would be perfect for projects.

Drove over to Hobby Lobby and picked up a watercolor journal that I will use for a Traveling Journal Round Robin I’ll be at the end of this month. There was a really nice spiral journal that I feel will be perfect. I’ll have to remove a few pages as we are doing a monthly journal and there are 12 of us in the group. While there I also picked up a pad of watercolor paper to make a journal for another group. This journal will be a watercolor journal swap.

While at Hobby Lobby I wondered over to the clearance section and found a fun die set that says Celebrate. When I saw the letters I saw – Create, Art and knew there were more words I could create. In fact, I did a google search and found a website WordMaker where you can type in the letters and it will tell you the words that can be made. This will be a fun purchase.

At My Hearts Fancy, I found a beautiful Laurel Burch Stamp Wild Horses. Recently while in Santa Fe New Mexico I purchased a beautiful Laurel Burch tote bag that has super cute puppy dogs painted on the outside.

When I walked into My Hearts Fancy I saw a new display of Laurel Burch Stamps and knew that I needed to get one. The Wild Horses stamp spoke to me so I purchased that stamp.

Video of the Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul:


Once I got home with all my goodies and shared them in the video. I had to make a card too. Pulling out the Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven and a few colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Party Pink, Denim Blue, True Turquoise, Night B4 Christmas.

Stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven using my MISTI. Heat set the ink. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – Party Pink, Denim Blue, True Turquoise, Night B4 Christmas. The pinks were on the right and the blues were on the left.

Heat set the sprays. Then using a paint brush I colored the areas that I wanted darker.

I love the shimmer that Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists add to projects. This stamp will be one I’ll enjoy playing with over and over.

Hope you enjoyed my shopping Paper Arts, My Hearts Fancy & Hobby Lobby Haul and Bonus How to make a Laurel Burch Wild Horses Card.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

WOW Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun! I had the best time at Creativation and then an extended vacation after the show.  There was so much to see and do during the event!

It was a blessing to be able to attend the show thanks to Canvas Corp Brands. Mind you I did work, I worked hart. The Canvas Corp Brands booth is an elaborate booth. Filled with so much inspiration that it can take more than three days just to see everything.

One of my art works was on display in the booth!  It was such an honor to see it on display where it could be seen by everyone.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

The Window in the lower right corner is mine.

Being a part of the crew to put the booth together was a blast and hard work. Once the booth was done that is when the fun began.

There were times I got to walk around the show and see lots of things and even try a few of the products first hand.

The Rinea Paper Foil company also had a booth and I got the opportunity to work for a few hours with the owners. It was so great being able to get to know the owners. Sometimes you don’t understand the passion one has until you meet then in person. Diane and AK are awesome people.

One of my favorite things was being able to create a mini hat at the Charity Wings Booth. This organization does awesome work and the ladies that were working the booth were super sweet.

Here is a hat made with Tattered Angels Papers and Mists, the photo was taken by our Finland visitor Lena Holmstrom. She was such a joy to have in the booth and to hang out with.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

Another of my favorite things was connecting with people that I only knew on the internet. Several of them I walked up to them and said, Hey I stalk you on the interweb. It was funny. Some loved it some gave me a “look”.

Carol Dube was the best. She just smiled when I took a selfie at her side. It didn’t bother her one bit. lol She even gave me a couple sheets of her gelli prints she was making. I felt blessed.

Creativation & Shopping Haul What Fun!

There was so much that I got to see and do that I made a video that is entirely too long, but I hope you enjoy seeing the goodies and can hear the joy in my voice.

If you ever get to go to Creativation (or whatever they call it next year) please go you won’t be disappointed.

Cricut Globe – Let it Snow

Today I’m sharing my Cricut Globe – Let it Snow project for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge #293 – Snow Sponsored by Pretty Cute Stamps. Challenge this week is to have a snow theme and use at least one Cricut cut in the project.

Cricut Globe - Let it Snow

What a great time to use a snow globe than this? The globe is from the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge. It was cut at 4.5 in. tall. The top most layer was removed as I wanted to stamp on the top layer and not have holes cut through the image.

Used Brutus Monroe snowflake stamps from the Oh Deer set. Stamped in Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Tumbled Glass and Brutus Monroe Ink Cornflower.

Brutus Monroe Stamp Set Oh Deer was used. This little fat deer makes me laugh every time I see him. Stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven on a scrap of white card stock and then fussy cut. Water colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Cork, Tattered Leather and It’s Black. Also used White High Impact paint by Tattered Angels.

Cricut Globe - Let it Snow

VersaMark Stamp pad was mashed onto Deer image and snow globe then Ranger Clear Holographic embossing powder was applied and heat set. This gives the appearance of being inside a snow globe.

Let it Snow from Printworks Stamps was stamped in Brutus Monroe Embossing ink, embossed with black embossing powder.

Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Brushed Corduroy applied to base of the snow globe.

Cut white card stock at 4 in. x 5.25 emboss with Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. Use Tim Holtz Disressed Ink Tumbled Glass and blending tool to add color around the edge. Mash VersaMark stamp pad to embossed image, cover with Ranger Clear Holographic embossing powder, heat set.

Blue card stock cut at 4.23 in. x 5.47 in. adhered as the first layer on a standard A2 greeting card. Layer Snowflake background. Assemble snow globe and adhere on top of embossed layer. Use pop dots to adhere Deer on top.

Video on how to make this card.


Super Fun greeting card! Love sharing this Cricut Globe – Let it Snow. Hope you enjoyed seeing how it was made. If you would like to purchase the finished card for $10.00 including shipping click here.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

A Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas project. Little paper roses fill a mini 3 in. x 3 in. canvas. Rinea foil, Brutus Monroe ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Sizzix die, and a Silhouette image were used to create this Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

Being on the Rinea Design Team gives me the advantage of getting to play with beautiful foil paper. For this project I chose silver, light pink and mint green foils.

The Sizzix Bigz Die – Flowers, 3-D by Beth Reames was used to cut the flowers. Rolling the flowers with a quilling tool makes the flowers come together easily.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

Used Brutus Monroe Sea Chalk ink around the edges of the canvas and swiping a little across the top as well. Then a few spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists – True Turquoise and Iridescent Gold coat the canvas to give a beautiful shimmer.

Recently I acquired a new wreath die and used this to cut the mint card stock. The wreath was adhered with hot glue.

A pink scrap of card stock cut with the Silhouette Love image. Cut at 3 in. Adhered with a light glue.

Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas

I arranged the roses around the canvas and adhered with hot glue. I just love how this little canvas turned out.

Here is a video of the whole process.

The Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas is a beautiful mini canvas that would be perfect gift for Valentines or even for Mothers day.

Who would you give this Love Roses Mixed Media Canvas to?

Bubble Background & Embossing ATC

Sharing a Bubble Background & Embossing ATC (Artist Trading Card) from the Maremi’s Creative Cafe #52cafecards Challenge. I joined the Creative Cafe just over a month ago and have loved very minute I’ve been in the Facebook group. There are so many talented people in this group. Go and join now, you won’t be disappointed.

Marta has begun a challenge. #52CafeCards. A weekly challenge where a word prompt is given based on the alphabet that we are allowed to interpret into an Artist Trading Card.

Since this weeks prompt is Bubbles I decided to try a technique I saw on the internet a while back. Fill a bowl with water and dish soap. Blow bubbles and then spritz with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Rake your paper, or in this case the ATC through the bubbles to pick up the color. Simple enough.

Items used for Bubble Background & Embossing ATC:
Diamonds Stamp set
Sterling Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink
Detail Ink Raven
Aubergine Chalk Ink
Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist, Party Pink, Pop Rocks, Turquoise Blue
White card stock
Purple card stock cut to 2.5 in. x 3.5 in.
Pink tread
white glue
Heat tool
Bowl
Water
teaspoon of liquid dish soap
Long Straw – I used a bendy straw so that I knew which end to put in the water vs my mouth.

Here is a video of how I made the ATC.

My suggestions, Use a large bowl and use one teaspoon or more of liquid dish soap. Blow lots of bubbles. Heck if you have a kid, have them blow the bubbles for you. lol The more bubbles the better. When the spray hits the bubbles they tend to pop. So the more layers of bubbles you have the better.

Fun technique. I’ll try this again. I may even hook up a small air pump from a fish tank to make the bubbles for me! Wish I would have thought of that before my video! lol

Hope this gave you another great idea of how to make a fun ATC. Using Bubble Background & Embossing ATC sure looks good to me!
