Spring has Sprung...by Peg


I am wondering who is seeing Spring out there, because it's not me.

Calgary is still lightly snowing.
We are still trying the break the shackles of winter here, but hope and crafting makes it feel like spring could come.
So with the possibility of Spring on the horizon, we want (maybe even need) to see a warm up featuring flowers!


Craft it, Picture it and Link it. #ECAPRIL2018

Hi Everyone, it's Peg and I wanted to share a quick little canvas I created using some of the new baked texture embossing powder. Sometime ago in a class with Wendy Vecchi, I learned that you can apply Archival ink from Ranger Ink to a non porous surface like glass and embossing powder will stick to it. Well, with my beautiful new supply of Emerald Creek powders, I wanted to see what I could create. I applied the ink and powder and was wowed. CAUTION glass gets hot, so hold it with a tool while heating and cooling.
I colored up some of the flowers from Tim Holtz and added them to my antiqued container. I then glued it to a 4X4 canvas. Happy Spring!

Hello! I am here to share my first Emerald Creek DT project. The theme this month is flowers and I thought Thinkerbelle was the perfect canvas to decorate my card! This is also my first experience with Emerald Creek embossing powders and I can say that I am in love with them! 

I started with coffee archival ink as I wanted the piece to have a vintage feel to it. 

I colored Thinkerbelle with various watercolor paints, alcohol markers and ink pencils. I antiqued the edges with archival ink. 




I framed the card with the absolutely beautiful Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder! The charred gold was the icing on the cake for this one. It added the perfect amount of antique gold yumminess to the edges. I felt it gave the piece a truly vintage feel. The card was finished with a scrap of sari ribbon.

Finally Spring has arrived over here in Vienna and there's an end to snowfall and chilly temperatures (instead they have risen from quite cold to extremely warm for Springtime within two days!). On my balcony the daffodils are in full bloom and their bright yellow against the green leaves inspired this rather clean and simple Spring tag.


I decided to highlight some of my favourites (besides the Baked Texture line) among Emerald Creek embossing powders from Kim's amazingly wide range and use them to create dimensional flower embellishments with loads of bright colour and shine.


And I just love the Clear Ultra Thick Gloss enamel that I put on top of some of the flowers and sprigs!


Happy Spring Time!

Hi friends! Karla here today with a beautiful mixed media card for April's challenge - Flowers! I've create a lovely card that could work for either a feminine or a masculine card using the Vintage Timepiece Stamp as my focal point.


Here's a look at the inside and the envelope using the beautiful Carnations stamp.


You can check out the process video HERE (or watch below) with lots of tricks and tips for using your embossing powders!

Hi everyone, for today's project I was in the mood to play with the new Distress Oxide colors and test how they react when used on a Gel Press. So I created several tags in blue and orange shades, knowing that I wanted to use the blue ones as the base.

After I was done, I stamped the flowers onto the orange tags and fuzzy cut them out. In addition I stamped one of the flowers onto a piece of tissue paper. Before adhering the flowers, I added a bunch of textured layers to the tag though, some of them stenciled with darker Distress Oxide, some of them then heat embossed with several Baked Texture powders.



After I adhered the flowers to the tag, I also added a small fairy to one of the tags. I finished them up with a few final touches, like edging the borders with brown Distress Oxides. If you'd like to see the entire process, you can watch the video here.

First up is Me! 

I had some ideas and decided I just needed to break with the work flow (79 packages packed and shipped in 4 days with 73 of those in the last 2 days) and craft for me.




So I grabbed the Gladiolas, Freshly Picked and Large Oak stamps. I stamped them using Stazon and did a light bit of colouring with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. 

You can't see the shimmer in the photo but it held and gave a bit of accent when I did the next part.

I Grabbed the Vintage Beeswax and layered over a couple of times using my Ranger Emboss It Dabber and heat tool and I loved how bold and rich the images became.


 


I am not sure where I will go with these pieces but I loved getting this result.

Stay tuned, it's creative month so I will blog up a bunch of photos for the cards I make at the end of April. I love the Card weekend. Plus we are doing a couple of gigs so we have lots of prep coming after this week, because I will be finished with the package catch up.
