Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember

Hi everyone and happy SeptSTAMPtember® ! :) I was so VERY luck to receive a stamp set to play with from Simon Says Stamp in order to create some sneak peeks and show what I can do for their HUGE release for their month long awesomeness that is STAMPtember®.

I had a ton of fun playing with this stamp set which is called You’re So Sweet.  Here’s a pic of the full set and you’ll see more from me throughout the month using the set, too.

And here is the card that I created with this yummy stamp set!

OrangeYouSweetLisa

 

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I used a bunch of my Gelatos® (Blood Orange, Mango, Tangerine), then stamped the oranges over it using my Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in Black #199. Then I stamped 3 more oranges and used my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils in #’s 111, 115 & 117 (from the Yellow Set) AND the Gelato® in Blood Orange to watercolor the oranges. The combination of colors really made the colors POP! I added just a dot of white to the centers using the Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in white (#101)

The oranges were popped up using the small, black 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® and attached to a panel of watercolor paper. Then I stamped the sentiment and a sweet little heart using a black pigment ink (onto vellum cardstock) and I heat set that with a clear embossing powder. I wrapped it around the card front and adhered the whole darned thing. :) I colored the inside of the heart with the watercolor pencils (breaaaathhhe) and added some dash lines. That’s it!

There are a lot of possibilities with this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and I’m so happy that I got to play with it. I hope I’ve given you a few ideas, too.

STAMPtember® is sure to inspire from so many artists from near and far! Stay tuned to their BLOG

Thanks so much for joining me today!

3D Foam Butterflies

Hi my friends! It’s been a busy week and I have a new FUN card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.  I’m using one of the Designer Foam shapes - 3D Foam Butterflies ! They are so fun and so super versatile.

Here’s the card I made, but I hope that you’ll check out the card on their blog so that you can see all the awesome supplies that I used on it.

LisaAdametz-3DFoamButterflyCard-1

They have all kinds of different fun shapes! I can’t wait to have a bit more time to play and have some fun with some of the other shapes, too. But, if you all know me then you KNOW I can’t resist these pretty butterflies anyway. ;)

On just a quick side note: Did any of you get to tune in to the Ustream class that I had with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft last night? It was my first one!! I was super nervous and I ran out of time to complete the project. I had such a great time, though. I’m already brainstorming for my next one. :)

Thank you ALL for checking out my blog, for being followers, and for being the amazing people that YOU are.

Hazel & Ruby Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m up on the Design Memory Craft blog today as we participate in a blog hop this week with Hazel & Ruby. It’s been a super creative week already and I’m super excited to be playing along in this hop. LOTS of fun things to be creating with.

I made a really fun and easy canvas using supplies from both companies.

SheSoardCanvas

I think it’s super cool! But someone (who lives in my house that is not my cats) was telling me that it looks like it says “She scared”. That kind of bummed me out. In which case, I change the color scheme to orange and black and make it a Halloween canvas, I guess. *sigh*

Whatever! I like it! And *I* think SHE SOARED!! Please go over to the blog to see how easy a canvas like this (soaring or not) is to make. ;) Plus, there’s lots of prizes, too! Comment here and tell me I’m not crazy, then go over there and comment to WIN!! Yayayayayyy!!

Hugs!

Bloom Girl – Hope Canvas

Hi crafty friends. I hope you’ve had a great week. Mine has been exhausting! So many things going on! But one of the highlights has definitely been making this canvas using the Hope stamp for the Bloom Girls Design Team.

I used Gelatos® in Iced Chai, Iced Coffee (from the new Steampunk Collection), and Gold Champagne to create the background,  the Hope Bloom Girl Stamp was colored with Faber-Castell watercolor pencils, and then I added a variety of Jamie’s beautiful Bloom flowers to embellish.

Please check out the Bloom Girls blog for other angles, close-ups, and more information.

And don’t forget there’s still plenty of time to play in the August challenge. It’s a MONTH LONG CHALLENGE and tons of fun. Seriously…would I lie to you? No way!!

Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you next week with LOTS more. :)

Thank You Burlap Tag

Hi friends! I have this really cool Thank You Burlap Tag up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.

LisaAdametz-ThankYouTagBurlap-1

 

I hope that you’ll check out the blog to see how I made it.  You’ll also be able to see all of the awesome adhesives and supplies that went into creating it.

I’m a firm believer that you can never have enough Thank You’s on hand and this unique tag featuring the texture of burlap and the beautiful flowers will surely be appreciated. The tag wasn’t difficult to make and I’m sure that whoever YOU make one for will really love it! :)

Wishing you all a wonderful and CREATIVE week!

Bloom Girls August Challenge

Hi! I’m so super excited that today brings the very first Bloom Girls monthly challenge. We’ll be posting an inspiration photo on the Bloom Girls Design Team Blog every month (the first of which you can see right below) and from that photo let your creativity SOAR!! You don’t even  have to use a Bloom Girls stamp!! (But, if you have any, please do…wink, wink.)

 

August 1 Challenge

 

So, for the Bloom Girls August Challenge you can see the gorgeous colors that Jamie chose and the stamp featured is “Free Spirit”. Isn’t she beautiful? Use anything that you see and get inspired!! :)

Here is what I created:

AugustChallengeLisaA

 

She is soooo much prettier in real life. I’m fairly certain I need a different camera lens or SOMETHING to be able to capture all the loveliness in my canvases. It’s getting frustrating. There’s a lot of shimmer, shine, and depth that’s just not coming through. :( I hope you like it anyway.

Jamie’s stamps are amazing and they have so much detail.  If you’re into mixed media or coloring with Copics…they’re perfect. Make sure to check out the blog to see what the other designers have done! And play along. Most of the flowers are all part of Jamie’s line, too. So many beautiful things!

And, last but NOT least, there is also a wonderful prize package up for grabs from Jamie to one randomly selected participant so you will really, really, really want to play along!! ;)

Wishing you all a wonderfully creative and inspirational week…

If you’ve already been checking out the first two days I’m sure you’ve been WOW’ed by the projects on both blogs! You just can’t go wrong with the papers by Graphic 45 paired up with the dimension, keepsake envelopes, and wonderful adhesives by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®

I hope you enjoy the easel card that I made using the oh-so-stunning Couture 8 x 8 paper pad  from Graphic 45. I paper pieced, fussy cut, and used almost every form of adhesive that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® makes!! ;) I haven’t made an easel card in forever so this was fun to make.

Dimensional Window Card

Hey there! Happy Sunday. :) I have a fun dimensional window card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today.  It even comes complete with a snazzy tutorial that I made just for you…yes, YOU! :)

LisaAdametz-BurlapBows-1

 

I wish you all could see just how cool this card is. The inside of the card fits perfectly into the front of the card. And the vellum sentiment doesn’t interfere in the slightest. It’s just so lovely. I may be a tad proud. Although, my photography skills are sorely lacking. Sorry. And…apparently I’m a vellum addict.

Anyway! Thanks for joining me today to see the window card I made. Tomorrow starts the Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog Hop that’s going on all week long. It’s going to be awesome. I’ll be up on Wednesday, but be sure to stay tuned all week long for giveaways!

Beautiful Tag

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve all been having a great week and have had a chance to participate in the Bring Back Nice Blog Hop below. :) Today I’m bringing you a tag that I have up on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog. It was really easy to make and I love this stamp set from Donna Downey sooooo much!  I’m calling it my Beautiful Tag. :) Original, huh?

BeautifulTag

 

All the steps to make the tag are on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today, so please stop on over to see how easy it is to make. And those flowers? Gorgeous, right? Part of my DT package for the Bloom Girls. Everything just flowed together making this tag. The colors of the Gelatos®, the colors of the flowers….the stamp set!! All so beautiful! I hope you think so, too.

Thanks for stopping by today! More to come soon! Yay! :)

Bring Back Nice Blog Hop

Bring Back Nice Banner

Hi! Lisa here and welcome to my stop on the Bring Back Nice blog hop! You should have reached my blog from Tiffany Kummer’s blog (LINK), but if not, you can always see the full blog list below and start at the top of the hop.

Our mission is simply to Bring Back Nice. Ashley Nguyen Newell started the movement on a Facebook page also called Bring Back Nice and it’s a simple mission. Find ways to be nicer to each other. Say Thank You more often. Pay for someones coffee. Send a card for no reason. Put your phone away when having lunch. We’ve all gotten so caught up in our own lives that we’ve simply forgotten HOW to be nice.

I made a little box using my Silhouette (nothing fancy), but for anyone that leaves me a comment on how YOU’VE been nice and enters in the giveaway I’ll have a $25 gift certificate to Ellen Hutson available and yes, this will be open to International commenters, too.
