Mixed Media Day Green Team 14-15

April 15-March 21
Weekly Challenge - Easter

This week we are creating for Easter over at Cuttin' and Stampin'
We are using Imaginise Welcome Spring collection and Paper Smooches Spring Fling stamp set both of which you can find at the Cuttin' and Stampin' facebook store
Michele from Stuff By Belle here today and I am sharing a card I made.

The label is cut from  Paper Smooches die (also available at the Cuttin and Stampin store).  I used my Distress Markers and water brush to paint these images, did some fussy cutting and poped some pieces for dimension.  The speech bubble is from Um Wow Studio and is covered in Distress Paint and then stamped with archival ink. 


The ribbon is seam binding sprayed with Color Shine.


And a little something on the inside too!


 You still have a couple of days to get your Easter project linked up on our challenge blog.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Until next time...get inky often!

Step-by-Step Wednesday - Green Team #14-15


April 15 - 21st, 2014
Easter Projects
Hello Everyone.  There are so many things going on today and this week.  I hope everyone has their taxes done and are ready for Easter.  Her at Cuttin' and Stampin' the Green Design Team has been working on Easter Cards and Projects.  
This week we are featuring the Imaginise Welcome Spring paper collection and the Paper Smooches Spring Fling stamp set.  



My Step-by-Step post this week is all about background paper!  I have created my own background paper with Glimmer Mist and Matte Mist.  



To start out, cover your work surface with something to keep the mist from getting where you don't want it!  Then start misting!


I used some watercolor paper and misted on some Plain Jane Baseboard paint in Water, Fire and Tiger Lilly.  Then it's got to dry!


After it dried, I used an EKSuccess punch to punch the holes in the side......I saved the punches for an effect later on.  Once it was punched, the colors didn't seem very "springy" to me.....they were a bit too dark.  So, using a moistened paper towel, I wiped off some of the color.  Since it was sprayed on watercolor paper, this didn't tear the paper up.  After it was lightened, the colors still weren't grabbing me.  So I grabbed some Glimmer Mist in Sand and sprayed it again.  It's now lighter and more shimmery!


This is where the holes come into play!!  I saw this beautiful tag on Pinterest that used the punched out holes as added dimension........sooooo........I took some of the punched holes, adhered them to the background and then used some Glossy Accents to give them a little pop!  I added some green gems, used some prima flowers, stamped an egg on patterned paper and my sentiment and there you have it!

This week the Orange Team is creating projects using the

Hey there, Karen N here from Craftily Yours. Seriously, could that stamp set be any cuter? And that paper is SO perfect with it! When I saw this set, I knew that I just had to get that unicorn inky. As our challenge is rainbows or Easter, I decided to color his mane in rainbow of colors! I really "need" more of that cute flower washi tape!


I also decided to decorate the inside with the rainbow stamp to keep the theme going! And the sentiment is, of course, perfect! :)
