For my projects today I’m using some really awesome new coordinating new products! I looooove dies that coordinate with stamps, don’t you? I also used one of the new die sets as a stand alone project.

My first card features the oh-so fabulous Santa from the Tis the Season Stamps . I LOVE this Santa!! I used the stamp and coordinating die from Tis the Season Dies to cut this cutie out 3 times.  And I used another super cute stamp from Santa’s Flight to really make the card “POP!”

LisaAdametz-Ho3-10202015-1Santa’s shades were made shiny were Black Enamel Accents and White Enamel Accents were used for the pom-poms on the hats. He was colored using Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Art GRIP® Color Pencils.

This is the second card I made and I neeeeeeeded to get watercolor-y. :) So I broke out my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set.  After cutting the watercolor paper to size I loosely watercolored a background using colors I thought would be pleasing for Fall/Autumn.

LisaAdametz--ThankfulGourds-10202015-1Place a piece of watercolor paper onto a piece of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Adhesive Sheets, remove the liner paper and burnish well. Place your die on to the paper and run through the die-cutting machine. By doing this you have a perfectly die-cut piece with a sticky side that still has a liner on it  — which can be removed when you are ready. I love these sheets!

I then very lightly watercolored the blooms and leaves from the Gourd-jus Dies set. After adding some thin strips of Little B washi, I simply adhered everything down — lifting the liner from the backs of the die-cut pieces and adding teensy pieces of foam to the back of the falling leaf.  There’s not much left to completing this card. Stamping the sentiment and adding the embellishments…but the finished result is so lovely.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today as much as *I* enjoyed making them for you. These blog hops are so fun. Make sure you hop on over to the phenomenal SANDY ALLNOCK’S Blog to see what gloriousness she has created!

Oh Happy Day

Oh Happy Day it  IS! It’s the weekend, right? And I have a brand spankin’ new tag over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today using a stamp set with that VERY sentiment. :)

It’s a mixed media tag with a LOT going on. No tutorial this time, sorry! But there’s watercoloring going on, I made a background using my new Gelatos®, used a stencil with Whipped Spackle…lots & lots of stuff!! The stamped flowers were created by watercoloring some paper, THEN stamped, and die-cut. I created the layered effect by using the different thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares that Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® has. So easy!

Here’s a side view… can you see all that dimension?!!?

Hope that your day is a happy one!

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.

Grateful for You

It’s almost Thanksgiving. Just a few short days away. I really can’t believe it. And this year has just flown by, hasn’t it? Hopefully it’s not just me that feels that way.

It’s my turn over on the Design Memory Craft blog today and I’m sharing a card that I made with a beautiful stamp and die set from Technique Tuesday called I Give Thanks that was designed by Teri Anderson.  Here’s a little look at the stamps and dies:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So you can see how beautiful these work together, but also how awesome the stamp set would work alone as a “Thank You” set, too.

I decided to make a card showcasing this set and how wonderfully the Design Memory Craft products work on a variety of textures. I didn’t go crazy with the textures… but most inks or pens wouldn’t stand up the way that these do.

ANYWAY!! ;) I made another video. And I apologize in advance for sounding like a weirdo. New meds make me sound really confused (ugghh!) and I had a heck of a time with my audio.  This is one of the reasons I like to use music, to be honest. Oh well.  Maybe I’ll find a good external microphone on cyber Monday? Hahha! Hope you enjoy the video and be sure to check out the full size card on the Design Memory Craft blog.

Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving!! Or if you DON’T celebrate Thanksgiving? Hope you have a great week. :D
