Can You Case It #159, A Sketch Challenge

Hello!  I have been off the crafting grid for a couple of weeks, but now I am back.  It was so great getting back in my studio.  Today, I finished a guest book I have been working on and I created this card for the Can You Case It Challenge.

Here is my card:



This card features stamps from the Hello New Life stamp set (Unity Stamp Co.).  This set is absolutely gorgeous.  I colored the flowers with water soluble oil pastels (Prima Marketing Inc.).  The mason jar is a metal sticker (Jolee's).  Pattern paper is Webster's Pages.

I really love how this card turned out.  Come join us on Facebook.  I can't wait to see your art.

Keep crafting in love and peace,
Dawn

Enjoy Mixed Media Canvas Album

Hello friends!  Today I am sharing a mixed media canvas album (Prima) that I altered.  I really, really love how it turned out.  The cover features loads of shabby chic goodness.








 It's graduation season so I thought this would make for a great guest book.  It could also serve as a Sweet 16 guest book, a Quinceanera guest book, or an art journal,  This book is filled with 50 sheets of various papers (heavy weight white card stock, heavy weight cream card stock, and heavy weight pattern paper).  There are also two envelopes included inside, metal clips and metal hangers with banners.

The cover features various inks (Prima Marketing Inc.), floral stems (Prima), a mini cloche (Prima), light bulb (Prima), metal watering can (Prima), a metal garden sink (Prima), a wood clock (Prima), a resin butterfly (Melissa Frances), and die cut paper (Heidi Swapp).

This item is available for purchase in my ETSY shop, lovepaperetc.etsy.com.  It is ready to ship.

Thanks for visiting.

Until next time,
Dawn

Can You Case It #156, Ombre Challenge

Welcome back friends to our weekly challenge!  I have to admit, this challenge was somewhat of a struggle for me.  It took me several takes to get this ombre background.  It's way late and now I'm thinking I didn't follow the guidelines for this challenge (LOL).  It's been one of those weeks.  Here is the inspiration:

Here is my card:



The background was created with a stencil (Art Anthology) and Stampin' Up inks.  Colored pencils were used on the guy stamp (Dina Wakley).  Sentiment is from June 2014 Kit of the Month (Unity Stamp Co.).  I also used die cut paper (Heidi Swapp) and a strip of pattern paper (Authentique).  Film strip is Tim Holtz and screws are Prima.

I really appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope this challenge inspires you to create.  Please come back again next week for another challenge.

Until next time,
Dawn

Savvy 7-May 2017-Blog Hop-May Flowers

Welcome to this month's blog hop!  I am really excited about this one because I absolutely love flowers.  It is finally spring and everything is blooming.  The flower I used on this card is absolutely gorgeous.





The flower and butterflies are from the March 2016 SMAK Kit called breathe it all in love it all out (Unity Stamp Co.).  The sentiment is also Unity.  It comes from the set, include yourself in beauty.  In creating this card, I inked white card stock with various inks (Tim Holtz and Stampin' Up).  I then stamped flower and butterflies.  I used Prima water colors around the flower and in the center.  A colored pencil was used to fill in the tiny flowers inside the large flower.  The sentiment was stamped last.

[inlinkz_linkup id=712610 mode=1] Thank you for hopping with us; make sure you come back the first Sunday of each month.

Until next time,

Here is my card:




For this card I used some products I just purchased today at Adventures in Stamping in Akron, Ohio: Distress Oxide Inks (Tim Holtz) and this stamp called Best Gift (Technique Junkies).  This stamp caught my eye because of the beautiful sentiment and the layout which is perfect for this sketch.  I really love my new Distress Oxides.  If you haven't checked them out yet, I highly recommend you do...they are amazing.

Until next time,
Dawn
