The World is But a Canvas with Video Tutorial

A few weeks back, I shared with you that I was chosen to be on the Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko Video  Artist in Residence Team.  I'm so excited!  I won't officially start posting on the blog until January, but thought I would give you a sneak peak of things to come.

The leaves and the dragonfly were made with the Vertigo film (that is one of the coolest products ever!)  If you would like to see more on how I made this, then please watch my video.  If you enjoy it - please subscribe to my YouTube channel!

Winter Woodland Card

    I've got a mixed media card to share with you today that will work for Christmas and beyond. A winter woodland scene was created using stencils, embossing folders and stamps. You could easily change the sentiment for any of your winter holidays. 008_edited-2  
Winter Woodland Card Supplies:

  Step 1. Use White Picket Distress paint over the area that will be covered with the stencil. Then lay stencil on top.

 Step 2. Mist with the blue spray. 


Step 3. Remove the stencil. Allow to dry.

Step 4. Emboss with the folder. Sand the raised image.


 Step 5. Stamp the sentiment with watermark ink. Heat emboss with silver powder. Stamp the holly leaves white white ink. Color with pencils. Die Cut the sentiment.
 Step 6. Add a bow to the sentiment panel and apply to card with foam adhesives.  
Step 7. Glue microbeads to the bottom of the card and star sequins to the sky area.

 You can create similar scenes for different seasons. The chalkboard embossing really makes a lovely design. Thanks for stopping by. ~Gini
