Funny Card

Hi everyone! I made a funny card!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!! ;) It’s actually for my post today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog. And it also happens to be for my dad’s birthday.  Shhhhhh….don’t tell him it’s here. It’ll be our little secret until the 22nd, okay?

Lisa Adametz Funny Card 2016

The card was so much fun to make. I love utilizing a lot of color in my card-making. The background is created by blending Distress Inks over a piece of water-color cardstock. I like the texture this type of paper gives the background. Smoother paper would not make it look this way, but I’m a texture freak.  This is no surprise.

The use of many sizes and thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® are what really bring this funny card to life. Okay, maybe the super cute sentiment, too. ;)

I hope that you’ll check out the blog post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to learn a bit more on how I made this funny card for my daddy-o. 

The stamp set that I used is called Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole and the matching die set is Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole they’re so FUN!!

I’ll see you back here on Tuesday for something super exciting!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for spending part of it with me. ♥

Hello Sunshine

Happy Saturday! I have this pretty Hello Sunshine card up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. It features one of my favorite products: pigment powders.  They are so versatile and can add shimmer and shine in a variety of ways.

Here is a peek at the Hello Sunshine card that I made for the blog today:

LisaAdametz-HelloSunshine-0827-2016-blog

Use Distress Inks (or a similar water reactive dye ink) to create the base colors for the center sun ray by sponging on with a mini-ink blending tool and using water to “bleach” certain areas of color off.

Mix water with the pigment powder to create a very wet, shimmery mixture. Dip a paintbrush into the mixture and tap over the surface to create a splatter. When lightly dabbed off, this can create a bleached effect. Heat dry or allow to heat set. Do this for each pigment powder.

A focal piece such as this Sun Ray (Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Silver Linings by Julie Ebersole) is very easy to create, can be done using so many different colors, and with many different dies as well. And cheering someone up with a “Hello Sunshine” card could be just what they need when they need it most.

More information about this Hello Sunshine card may be found on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog . Thanks!! :)

Always Remember

Memorial Day is a day to remember the fallen. To show respect, and to honor the brave men and women who DIED while in service to this great nation of ours. We need to always remember these brave souls. And that is what Memorial Day is all about. It’s one day of the year that is set aside to do exactly that. To pay our respects. 

I have a card today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to share my respects for those brave men and women. To say that we will always remember.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. — (Source: Wikipedia)

I created my own Flanders Field of poppies using this gorgeous stamp set from Technique Tuesday called Budding Poppies.

I stamped it once, masked off one of the poppies and stamped it again. This creates a look of dimension and there being more when there isn’t any. The coloring was all done with Distress Markers, which I used as watercolors.

The sentiment (which I LOOOOOVE) comes from another Technique Tuesday stamp set called Poppy Sentiments and is one of my all time faves. I just love this stamp set with my whole heart. My dear friend Teri Anderson designed it and the sentiments in this set are the BEST…along with the poppies, of course.

As for me, I know that I will always remember those that came before me and laid their lives on the line so that I could live in a free country. I am so proud to live in a country like ours. We have so many wonderful opportunities and we have to give thanks where they are due.

Wherever you are, I hope that you will bow your heads in a moment of silence and remember…
