Onto some craftiness!

I’m showcasing two stamp sets today.  Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Spa Day by Brandi Kincaid and Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Wonky Backdrops by Julie Ebersole.

The first card that I made just makes me giggle. I used Copic Markers to color the cutie from the Spa Day stamp set, the candle, some flowers and cucumbers. Then I used the coordinating die set and die cut them all out, plus the face mask. I also used the ARC Crafts Cherry wood Veneer Envelopes (what I had on hand) to die cut the mirror. Love that stuff and it makes the mirror more homey looking. The mirror’s bulbs were created using the 4mm Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh, and coloring them with a bright yellow Copic.

I also used the Essentials By Ellen Designer Dies by Brandi Kincaid Mirror, Mirror to create the mirror. The phenomenal quote is from the Spa Day Stamp Set.

My second card is a little bit different, but I hope you like it. I’m using the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Wonky Backdrops by Julie Ebersole for this one.

The beautiful yellow cardstock was stamped in Versamark repetitively with the polka dots to form the background (using the MISTI) and then heat set using a clear embossing powder.

Then using the large dots from the set I used Distress Inks to create watercolor spots/blobs/dots. ;) Once dried, I stamped over them with Versamark using the sketchy wheel designs from the same set and heat embossed with a gold embossing powder. Using a stamped/heat embossed sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Mirror Mirror by Brandi Kincaid completed the card. I just love how graphic this card is and shows the many ways you can use the stamps from the Wonky Backdrops set.  It’s a keeper! HA!

I hope you enjoyed my cards today. I know I had fun creating them. This is a really great release that has something for everyone. So onto your NEXT stop! The always amazing Sandy Allnock!! Enjoy her wonderful creativity and the rest of the hop.

I am so excited to showcase the drop-dead GOR-JUS Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps, Season to Sparkle by Julie Ebersole and the coordinating die set Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Season to Sparkle by Julie Ebersole.  This set is so amazing. I think my jaw dropped when I saw it for the first time. So, so pretty! The sentiments included in the stamp set are just perfect, too.

I was going for a bit of a Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis feel with my watercoloring.  What do you think? And rather than use silver embossing powder I used pewter. I love that it’s a tad less “harsh” in tone. Y’know? The pewter EP looks phenomenal against the jewel tones from the cardstock and my Aurora, too. So happy with this card. :)
Here are what the stamp and die sets look like.season-to-sparkle_thumb

For my second card I used the stand alone Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Geo Tree by Julie Ebersole. This card is so much prettier than what you can see. Which bums me out. The tree behind the geometric tree is water-colored with Distress Crayons in bright Greens and Blues. And a few sequin “ornaments” have been hung. I love the effect.   The shiny bits are FOIL!! 

lisaadametz-believe-10112016-blog

I wanted to keep this card simple, so NOT normal for me…I know! To do this the geometric tree shape was die-cut out of Essentials by Ellen, Woodgrain Embossed Cardstock. Everything was layered from the back panel up. And to add a bit of dimension? 3D Foam Adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, of course. The final touch was a few more sequins and another stand alone die: Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Believe by Julie Ebersole.

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® & Altenew Blog Hop

Hi everyone! And welcome to to my stop on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® & Altenew Blog Hop!!

For my card I’m using the Altenew set Lacy Scrolls and what I did was create a watercolor-type background with them using dye-based inks. I then stamped a separate flower, fussy cut it and popped it up using Thin 3D Foam Squares, Mix – White. To create additional interest for the background I created a bit of “splatter” paint simply by mixing Donna Salazar’s with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Pigment Powder in Pink and Gold with a little bit of water, dipping a thin paintbrush into the mixture, and flicking it onto the background.

LisaAdametz-Peace-11202015-blog

I used a die to create the panel (super easy and NO measuring!) and also a die for my word “peace” which I cut FOUR times! I used the 4″ x 6″ Adhesive Sheets on the back of a piece of light gold card stock so after I ran the pieces through my die-cutting machine it was super easy to adhere them all together. No messy strings…just stick them together! Perfect!

I used my always trusty E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser to adhere the patterned paper to the card base. And 3D Foam Squares, White – Regular to adhere the panel to the patterned paper card front.

Simple ribbon, twine, pearls, and enamel dots finish it off for an elegant card to give to anyway in need of a pick-me-up. 

Here are some close-ups:
