dreamy hello (SSS, Virginias View)


Have you seen the June 2014 issue of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking yet?  There was one category that I couldn't get enough of... Inspired by Song Lyrics.  You'll die when you see which song/idea came to my mind first... they shared my card over on the PC and S blog!

But I get to share another with you here.  This was for the Stamping on Different Mediums category. (And the complete opposite as far as style goes.)


Artsy fartsy. I stamped the floral arrangement and roughly colored it with gelatos which I then hit with a wet paint brush. Added some bright orange accents with a colored pencil.  Then I randomly stamped the airy Posies from Technique Tuesday on acetate with StazOn and stitched the acetate over the stamped panel. Love how it kinda floats over the image underneath. TIP: Use temporary adhesive to hold the acetate in place when stitching, then rub it off.

Playing at:
Virginia's View #3 cuz stitching is a great way to attach acetate to a card
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where it's about Spring Flowers

Have a great day!

ETA:  This card showed up over on the PCS blog today and it's so cool to see what it inspired Go-To-Gal Laura W. to make!


Supplies for hello:
Paper:  CS Bringmann, PP Kesi Art, recycled acetate
Stamps:  Hero Arts/BG, Technique Tuesday
Ink : Versafine, StazOn
Tools: sewing machine
Other: gelatos

Yes I loved that feature in the new PC mag Maria. When I read it over breakfast yesterday I saw your card and was singing it all day! This is a fabulous card I love the effect of using the Gelatos!

Wow. this is such an awesome design with a bit of smart stitching, Maria! Love the pattern from the outlined flowers and the bright colors underneath the vellum! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia's View Challenge! Congrats on the pub, too! You got this, Babe (Maria)!

This card is beyond amazing in every way!! I just love the layering you achieved thanks to the acetate, and the 'messy' colouring is perfect for this mixed media look!! This one should be in a frame and on display permanently!!

Love the idea.... stitching the acetate is such a clean way to adhere it! Everything about your card is so lovely!

Sarah Gray said...
