Sorry for the sporadic posts as of late.
I hope you are all keeping well.
My Grandson Connor's Birthday is in 5 days.
He will be 4 years old. (Love him so much!)
First I made the Doggy Birthday card and
then wondered how friendly it looked for a 4 year old.
I think I'll give him the Happy Dino Card and
save the puppy one for next year! LOL
The Very Cool Doggy Stamp is from Rubbernecker.
Sweet Dino Stamp is from Paper Makeup.
All Star Kid Stamp is from Inky Antics
Grandson Stamp is from the Stamp Barn

I just love surprises! I hope you do as well.

I would really appreciate you posting this Candy on your blog.

Thank you for your patience.

Masculine Card, A "Love Life" Card and a Tutorial

Lets Call This Technique "Manipulated"
There will be more cards using this
technique to come.
You can also put a vellum or mesh over these.

The picture below looks terrible!!! I couldn't get
a good photo for some reason. The photos above
look a little more like real life.
For the Background You Will Need:
You will need to know that you will be wasting some ink.
White glossy card stock
Alcohol inks (several colors/lights and darker colors)
StazOn or Memories ink
Very important: non stick craft mat
something to cover your work surface.
A few folded pieces of paper towel
TUTORIAL:
Try to visualize what your scene will look like.
Now realize that it will never come out exactly
like you imagined. LOL
You can do an abstract design or scenery.
I prefer scenery.
Always apply lightest color first, as in most art!
Hold card stock (over some folded paper towel) -
on an angle and apply the first color of your
alcohol inks.
***Touch the edge or corner of card stock on the
paper towel to allow the excess ink to be absorbed.
You want the ink to flow down your card,
while you manipulate where the flow goes,
by tilting your card stock to different angles.
ie: if you are doing a nature setting then you
might want to start with the sky. I would start with
Yellow and manipulate your card so that the yellow
ink only flows where you want it. Then incorporate
your different sky colors. I always use yellows, orange,
reds, purples a few different
blues, and I always use some metallic pearl mixed with
the blues. Then for the middle ground you may
want earth colors. Maybe flat or maybe you might create
some mountains.
For the foreground you might want some hilly areas.
Just use your creative imagination and see
what you come up with.
Stamp your choice of images over this background -
using memories or stazon ink.
Some will turn out better than others.
If one turns out bad then use your spellbinders
to frame the good part of it or just make butterflies out of it. lol
JUST HAVE FUN and
BE FEARLESS WHEN CREATING ART!
Hugs,
Dorothy
P.S. one day I might learn how to make a video and upload it.
Be patient!

Dorothy's Been Playing......

These are some fun backgrounds I did today....
I will try to post at least one finished card
tomorrow, along with the instructions for these backgrounds.
These are so much fun to do, and you never know
what you will come up with.
Cheers,
Dorothy

Thinking of You / Funky Background

Finally!
You get so many different looks with
different backgrounds
Take a Ziploc bag and place a piece of heavy
CS inside. Make your CS just slightly
smaller to fit snug in a the Ziploc.
Now take white glue and randomly draw
a design onto the Ziploc bag.
Set aside for approx. one hour.
Then cover with different embossing
powders and heat until melted.
cut any remaining plastic away.
Have Fun! xo

For someone very special...

A Mother's Day Card I did for my
Daughter-In-Law.
Sorry I couldn't post these earlier.
Janis gets email updates of this blog.

Below is the card my 7yr old
Granddaughter Jazzy did for her Mom.

All Jazzy's design!

I always have some backgrounds embossed,

some die cuts done and lots of punched out

goodies hanging around. Jazzy came over with

a glass stone from her back yard. Within 5 minutes,

I turned around and this card was layed out.

Often, Jazzy leaves me scratching my head!

Beauty.....

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
TO ALL THE BEAUTIFUL MOTHERS
OUT IN BLOG LAND!
xo
For the background I first sprayed it with a few
color wash colors. Then I painted over it with Sheer
Gold Glaze by Delta and immediately wiped it off
leaving just a fine coating. Once dry, I gave it a
couple of squirts of spray webbing by Krylon.
The Butterfly and flower center were
explained in an earlier post

Flying.......




Emboss with Cuttlebug, swipe with versa mark
and emboss with sparkly powder.
Bought the flowers in the wedding section at Micheals
I spray painted the flowers with 18K gold plate krylon.
(spray outdoors!)
Butterfly and lettering is QuicKutz
More to follow later

No MoJo = Easy cards.....

I haven't been feeling very creative lately.
However......I am working on some fun stuff now.
Hugs,
Dorothy
The Stamp is from The Stamp Pad Company

The Earth is starting to laugh!

This is a cute little bouquet of flowers that my
Granddaughter Jazzy picked for me.

This time of year it's like the Earth is waking up

from a long winter's nap. So much life all around us!

Buds on the trees and cute little baby sprouts everywhere!

Flowers are blooming and Children are out playing!

I know it puts a smile on my face.

The inspiration for this card came from the flowers
Jazzy picked or me. Thanks Jazz! xo
This is a real cut and paste card. All I did is glue
everything together and distress.
