Personalized Collage Canvas with Infinity Engravings LLC


Hello and Welcome back!  Todays project is a mixed media canvas utilizing chipboard letters and bright colors to create a fun, bright and exciting piece of art.  Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel where I filmed the tutorial from start to finish.  I had my nephew in mind when creating this piece, so I used his favorite colors and embellishments that would resonate with him, such as feathers because he loves birds and nature and an anchor because he loves going boating and the water.

 Here is my supply list:
8" X 14" canvas
Tim Holtz Postale Tissue Wrap
Dina Wakely Heavy Body Acrylics:
  Tangerine and Lemon
Dylusions Acrylics:
  London Blue, Cut Grass, Vibrant Turquoise
Dreamweavers Crackle Texture Medium
Lindy's Stamp Gang pigment powders:
  Curiouser Chartreuse, Tweedle Dee Denim
  Lucky Shamrock Green and Tilt-A-Whirl Teal
Shimmerz Jelly Bean Green Paint
Paper Studio Chipboard Letters
Creative Medium in Gold
Tim Holtz Mini Stencils Set 3
Mosaic Star stencil
Metal Embellishments
E6000 Metal Glue
Prima Soft Matte Medium
28 Lilac Lane Buttons







I included several close up shots of the canvas to give you an idea of the texture created by combining texture pastes with stencils and how the colors transition one into the next.




Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me today!  I'd be happy to answer any questions you have and I'd also love to know what you think!

Neat & Tangled "Bible Journaling" Card Series with Tupelo Designs LLC

Neat & Tangled Bible Journaling Card Series #1 with Tupelo Designs LLC

Welcome back!  Todays card is the first in a series of cards I've done using the Neat & Tangled Bible Journaling stamp set.  I had the ink blended background sitting on my desk from another project and having the layout of stamps in mind, I put the two together to create an inspiring and ethereal card.  I always have an eye out for stamp sets that allow me to share and express my faith, so this set was perfect for that.  While it's designed for use in a Bible, I wanted to share how to use it in cardmaking, since that is more in my wheelhouse.  Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel if you want to see how I created this card and stay tuned as I have 3 additional cards coming up in the series with a fun surprise to wrap up!

Neat & Tangled Bible Journaling

Floral Shaker featuring Concord & 9th with Tupelo Designs LLC

Hello there!  Todays project is a Vellum Shaker using 2 stamp sets and a die set from Concord & 9th.  Wildflowers is one of my favorite sets from Concord & 9th, so having the images condensed into a collage image was right up my alley.  I also did some ink blending and finished it off with some die cut butterflies and sentiment.  The smile sentiment makes it suitable for a birthday, thinking of you, hello or even a sympathy card.  By changing the sentiment, it's suitable for a congratulations or recognition of achievement.  Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel and be sure to subscribe, like, and let me know what you think or if you have any questions in the comment section below the video.  Below is my supply list.

Engraved Chipboard Technique with Infinity Engraving LLC

Engraved Chipboard Technique with Infinity Engraving LLC

Hello and welcome!  Todays post is this card featuring a Chipboard technique using layered embossing powder and a stamp.  Here is the video on my YouTube channel demonstrating how to achieve the engraved look.  Below is my supply list.

Supplies:
Faith die cut chipboard by Infinity Engraving LLC
Cosmo Cricket Aquarelle Just Add Watercolor stack
Versamark
Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder
Ranger Enchanted Gold embossing powder
Glossy Accents
Lawn Fawn Stitched Square dies
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies
Script stamp
Watercolor paints (I use Daniel Smith)
Patterned Paper

You can use any embossing powder, including Ultra Thick, for this technique.  It does seem to work best with opaque, metallic finish powders, but give it a try with any powder you have and decide for yourself!  You can use chipboard and cardstock with it, but make sure your cardstock is good quality.  The thinner the cardstock, the more likely is it to warp.  Leave any questions in the comments and I'll do my best to answer.  Thanks for joining me today! See you next time!

Much love,
Jasmine

Pining for You Shaker with Tupelo Designs LLC


It's summer in Michigan and that means lazy weekends spent at the lake fishing and roasting marshmallows over the campfire.  That was the inspiration behind this adorable shaker.  In the video on my YouTube channel, I show you how I did it, from start to finish using a shaker kit from Queen and Co and the Warm & Fuzzy stamp and die set by My Favorite Things.  Listed below are my supplies with links ;)  Just a note of caution: these shaker kits are crazy strong with static electricity so I do not recommend the use of microbeads.  They will jump and stick to all the exposed adhesive, making the foam unusable (I learned the hard way ;).

Supplies: (*denotes item supplied to me by TDLLC)
*Queen & Co Window shaker kit
My Favorite Things Warm and Fuzzy Friends stamps 
My Favorite Things Warm and Fuzzy Friends die-namics
Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock

Embossing Enamel Chipboard Technique with Infinity Engraving LLC

Hello and welcome! Todays technique is not new, but really quite fun and versatile.  It's an easy way to add texture and dimension to chipboard and cardstock.  I used Ultra Think Embossing Enamel for this project, which comes in black and clear, but you can use any embossing powder with this technique.  The difference between embossing powder and embossing enamel is the size of the grains; UTEE is just bigger granules where powders are a much finer mill.  You do need to use a sticky ink, as the bigger granules will fly off the project if the ink isn't sticky enough.  Distress ink, for example, will stay wet long enough to use embossing powders with it because of the finer mill, but it's not sticky enough to hold onto the larger granules of UTEE.  Here's the video on my YouTube channel, demonstrating the process for you.  Be sure to subscribe so you don't miss anything to come!  I also have other Infinity Engraving videos on my channel for you to check out!  Here's what I used in the video.

Supplies:
Castle Chipboard Die cuts by IE
Ranger Black UTEE
Perfect Pearls: Grape Fizz and Biscotti
Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After stamp and die sets
Simon Says Stamp inks: Duckling, Melon, Hollyhock and Hot Mama
Inky Antics Cloud Stencil
Copic Markers: BG (01, 09, 15, 23) C (1, 3, 5, 7)
Wink of Stella Clear
Momento Tuxedo Black
Tombow Power Tabs
Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock
Spectrum Noir Cardstock
Glossy Accents
Little Things Sequins

Watercolor Peony Posey with Tupelo Designs LLC


Todays card was inspired by the colors of Grand Traverse Bay in the summer time; blues, teals and turquoise.  The stamp is Peony Posie by IndigoBlu and is a fairly elaborate image, so I wanted to keep the background simple and understated.  I used a simple wet on wet technique and just laid down stripes of color and after it was dried, I added a few sequins to finish it up.  Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel and don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss out ;)

Supplies (*denotes item supplied to me by TDLLC)
*IndigoBlu Peony Posey
Archival Black Ink
Daniel Smith Watercolors:
  Pthalo Blue
  Mayan Blue
  Blue Apatite
  Pthalo Turquoise
Arches Pink Label watercolor paper
Silver Brushes: 3/4 and #8 Round
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die
Concord & 9th Written in the Stars stamp set
Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder
Versamark
MISTI
Scor-tape
Glossy Accents
Clear sequins

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me!  You can do this technique with any colors and any watercolors.  Gansai Tambi and Koi are two other palettes that I have that are great quality, affordable watercolors that are a little more crafter-friendly.  Daniel Smith are professional grade paints and as an artist, they are my favorite.  However, don't let not having a specific product stop you from creating with what you do have.  I promise you, improvising is something we designers do constantly!  So don't wait until you have this or that to be creative; you can do fantastic things with the supplies you have (even if it's just your kids crayola colored pencils!).  See you next time!

Much love,
Jasmine
