We Are Linked

Hello and Happy Friday! 

Lisa from The Relativity of Paper.

Today I'm over on the SVG Attic Blog

I'm so ready for Spring, are you? So I decided to create something spring-like to have in my craft room. I wanted to create something that I could use as a decorative piece on my desk. The Dressmaker Easel Tag Card from the JGW Just Sew Kit is perfect for this project. 

I used Kraft 12 x 12 cardstock to create the base. 

This easel will sit perfectly on my desk without taking up too much space and brighten my days. 

As always, thanks for joining me. 

Valentine Morning

Wednesday, February 6, 2019

Happy Tuesday and welcome back!
Today I'm over on The Rabbit Hole Designs Blog sharing this Valentine's card. 

 In Monday's post, I talked about using stencils and how it was a great way to kickstart our mojo. In today's post, I'm sharing another creative way to kick start our mojo. Color palettes or color schemes. You can find them on Pinterest or Google color scheme or palette generator. Be warned, you may find yourself down a rabbit hole! For this card, I googled Valentine color schemes and landed on Pinterest looking at this beauty, Valentines Morning

Valentines Morning color palette created by steakapple that consists #fff2d8,#fccdd3,#fca2cf,#d8f4f6,#ade1eb colors.

Immediately, I grabbed five ink pads and markers to match as closely as possible. Then I just let myself have fun! Tip: Don't stop mid-way, push yourself to keep going with it. At first, I did not love the card, but by the time I was done, I loved it. 

How To
  • Stamp images using black ink 
  • Stamp the houses, mask, and stamp the second row
  • Color the images using alcohol markers 
  • Fussy cut or use a Scan N Cut to cut the couple out
  • Stamp the hearts with blues, pinks, and pale yellow(buttercup)
  • Position stamped card panel to a card base (I used a 3 5/8 x 4 7/8 card base because I have a stack of smaller envelopes I need to use)
  • Add 3D mounting foam to the back of the couple and position on the card front
  • Stamp sentiment using black ink and die-cut with a sentiment die

As always, thanks for joining me! 

So-Fishticated Note Cards with Lisa

Monday, February 4, 2019

Hi, and welcome back everyone. Do you ever make note cards? Does every card have to be for an occasion? My husband's grandmothers love to receive note cards with a handwritten message of the happenings in our lives and to be quiet frank, sometimes I want to mindlessly create. Note cards let me do that, and this helps when my mojo is running dry. 

How To Day 1
  • Stencil backgrounds using glitter glaze, transfer gel, texture paste, and stencil paste onto heavy cardstock. Always try to use heavy cardstock to hold up to the paste and gels.
  • Set backgrounds aside to dry
How To 
  • Stamp images using VersaMark Ink, add embossing powder to the inked image, remove excess and heat set with a heat gun 
  • Fussy cut images and set aside 

  • To assemble the two cards above cut two pieces of vellum; I used rectangle nesting dies and run through the BigKick
  • To attach the vellum to the stenciled background, I use Gorilla Double-sided mounting tape, center on the card front
  • Add 3D mounting foam to the backside of images and attach to vellum

How To 
(one difference with these two cards)

  • Die-cut cardstock banner to place behind the fish

Love A Good Boot!

Friday, February 1, 2019

Hi, and welcome everyone. Today I'm over the SVG Attic Blog sharing a fun Valentine's Day card.
Using the Witches Boot Card from the Bewitched Boutique Kit. I love this boot because it can be used for so many things. I did a Birthday Version that you can see here

Every product I used is from my stash. The patterned paper is old Martha Stewart paper, the red twine is, of course, Trendy Twine, the cute little fuzzies are Queen and Co. This card is super easy to cut and assemble. The word LOVE is from the Love Potion #9 Label.

s always, thanks for joining us!
