Felt Flower

Hey there! It’s another #texturaltuesday over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC and I’ve made a super cool Felt Flower on a canvas that I hope that you’ll check out. The link is right HERE <—.

Today’s project is a feature that all the Ellen Hutson designers are doing this week and that is to work with felt in their projects. It was really fun! I always love making felt flowers and the canvas that I made for today is certainly no exception. 

Here is a look at the canvas with the felt flower.

Felt Flower

The die for my flower is from Memory Box (it is the Plush Ranunculus) and the felt is from Taylored Expressions (the assorted yellow -orange). 

Making projects like this is so much fun! I was able to get super painty with the background.  And, though I got carried away with the sequins, I really like how this turned out. The big, bold felt flower really makes this small canvas so happy.

The full tutorial and *tons* of photos for how I made this canvas is over on the CLASSroom blog , so please head over there for more information or if you’d like to just see how I made the canvas.

As usual, all of my supplies are listed below.  If you have any questions on the products, please send me an e-mail or comment below. Thank you!!

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!

It’s Planner Time!

Yeah…It’s Planner Time! (Sing that to “It’s Hammer Time!“)

In case you didn’t know I’m a new Design Team member for a super cool new stamp company run by my friend, Ashley Harris, called Your Everyday Stamps. My inaugural post (<–click here!) as a DT member of the YES Team goes live TODAY and it’s featuring the Plan It Daily stamp set which is a really awesome planner set (see? Planner Time? Get it?). And since planners are all the rage with the cool kids I thought I’d do my own spin on it.

Since I’m more of a mixed media person and totally unorganized (though I have multiple planners) I had to do something I knew would work for me.  I explain my thought process and the whole works on the YES Blog, so please join me there for my step-by-step pics.

But, here’s a quick peek at what I did:

Doesn’t look like much from this pic, does it? :D But, I had a great time. And I had to keep it simple so that I *would* use it.

Stop by and check it out, and let me know what you think! I always love to read your comments and thoughts.

HAPPY MONDAY!! Woohoo!

Gardenia Bloom Girl

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! :) I have a brand spankin’ new post featuring the Gardenia Bloom Girl on the Bloom Girls Design Team Blog. For today’s post, I’m using one of my very favorite techniques to create the background using Gelatos®. So, if you have hopped to my blog for the Seasons Givings Blog Hop (the post below this one) today’s post for the Bloom Girls features a technique to learn in case YOU are the lucky winner. :)

I love this stamp. If you’re into making cards, layouts, art journals, or canvases the Gardenia Bloom Girl is a wonderful size. You can use the entire length of it for a canvas, art journal or layout. OR…just pick a smaller portion to stamp (like her beautiful face!) for a card. The card that I made is a standard A2 size. (4 ¼ x 5 ½”)

Here is a (very generous) sneak peek of this beauty:

LisaAdametz-Gardenia-Create-2I really hope that you’ll pop on over to see how this technique is done. I have a YouTube video showing how I made a similar background on my YouTube channel that is shown on the blog post as well. ALL of my videos can be found under the yellow header on the right “Follow Me On:” and clicking the YouTube icon.

Enjoy the card and I’ll see you back here soon!

**Don’t forget I’ll be announcing the winner of the giveaway in January 8th.**
