Ustream for Limor Webber Designs


Hi everyone I'm really excited to announce today, that I  will be doing a special Guest Spot on Limor Webber Designs Ustream channel.  Limor is an amazing Mixed Media Arts who has recently launched a new line of stamps with IndigoBlu. Tonight we are going to play with these stamps and create a mixed media canvas! 

Please join me on LIMOR'S Ustream Channel:  Http:// at 7p.m. MST (9 pm Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, and 6 p.m. Pacific) on Tuesday, February 17, 2015.

We are going to make this canvas from start to finish. 

 Here are a list of supplies if you want to follow along:  

Ephemera Butterflies (2)  I cut mine from scraps of scrapbook paper
Canvas Board - 9x12
Tullip Dimensional Paint - White
Microbeads - Black
Chipboard   Cutting the heart shape
For the chipboard butterfly, I used a chipboard mini album that I had in my stash.  However, if you don't have one, I'm including a pattern here for you to download and use as a template for cutting the butterfly out of Med. Weight chipboard.   I don't recommend recycled packaging as you will see both sides of the butterfly and you don't want the printing visible through the painted layers.

Here is the butterfly.  Please print at 100% so that the size is accurate (click the image below to see the full size).

February Sketch and Dare Challenge for Die-namites


Hi everyone, Where did January go?  Yep it is now mid February and time to start thinking about Valentine's Day. I feel like Christmas just ended!

Today I would like to remind everyone about the Sketch & Dare Challenge at Die-namites Dies.

 The dare this month is to use a heart!


 I used the Summer Branch and Heart Doily Dies from Die-namites for my card today:

 For today's card,  I also wanted to highlight a few yummies
recently released  by IndigoBlu
IndigoBlu FlitterGlu Kit in Box
A5 Tuff Storage Box
FlitterGlu (50ml with Easy clean nozzle)Phat Foam
Scoochy sponge
Palette Knife
1x Winter Dawn
Instruction Sheet
All you need to get started, in a box.
This kit includes everything you need to start producing fantastic foil effects. Simply choose your stamp and have some fun creating great cards and decorations.

I chose the new Splattered Heart Stamp that was designed by my good friend Limor Webber.  I love the grungy splatter effect and thought it would make a great accent with the foiling.
Together these products helped produce the drama needed for this card.  I love how the delicate Summer Branch Die easily takes the foiling after it has been die-cut.  By combining the splatters from the stamp with the Flitter foil, I was able to give my card the look of Fireworks!
Here is a process video showing how I made this card:

I love how easily I was able to add the flakes to my delicate die-cut.   Foiling is so HOT right now, so this system makes it super simple to create dramatic cards, that remain flat enough to mail! 

Thanks for stopping in today,
