Here is my little adorable "Mother's Day" Card!
I took the Die-Namites Die "Momma's Love" which is a baby theme die with 
these amazing Tombow USA adhesive products
to create such a touching "Mother's Day" Card!!!!



Momma's Love

Ah a "Momma's Love"... Do you see the heart? ADORABLE...


I first die cut out the "Momma's Love" Die-Namites Die twice out
of white card stock. Colored the images with my CTMH ShinHanart Twin Touch Markers.
As seen below after I fussy cut out a few images to pop up using Tombow USA's 3D Foam Tabs.
I also used the Tombow USA's Multi Mono Liquid Glue to give the 3D Foam Tabs
extra strengthen to the die cut images.



I am so thrilled with new product....Tombow USA's
 New XTREME Permanent Adhesive!!!
It's FABULOUS....it's such a strong bond it's great for putting paper to paper.


Tombow USA's 3D Foam Tabs are wonderful for adding depth to your cards!


Another FABULOUS product from Tombow USA is the Multi Mono
Liquid Glue and Aqua Mono Liquid Glue..
it's perfect fit for the Die-Namites Dies cut outs...it 
comes out in a fine line for the details of the die cuts flows on easy!


Here is another look at my "Mother's Day" Card!




Tombow USA and Die-Namites were so generous with products I had
to create another project. I decided to create a little panel canvas
to create another "Mother's Day Gift!


Cotton Ball Flowers



I used the Tombow USA's 3D Foam Tabs, Multi Mono Liquid Glue
 as well as the Aqua Mono Liquid Glue
 which is a clear glue it was great to adhere the vintage book paper
 to the canvas panel.
three times in white card stock and colored them all the same with markers.
Adding touches of CTMH inks, doilies and
 vintage Mother of Pearl Buttons to the canvas panel...
this will make any mother happy to display
 on a coffee table or in a photo frame!


Thanks for stopping in today!
Happy Hopping along with us...hugs

Here is my card inspired by the Sketch & Color Dare!

I created a Happy Mother's Day Card, using
distress inks with water for a watercolor effect. 



Butterfly Frenzy

I love the watercolor look with Distress Inks...I use my Kraft Mat to 
rub the Distress Inks down onto the mat. Using my water brush picked up
the ink as my color....brushed on layers after layers creating depth.


I love the textures in my card between the card stock, die cut pieces,
watercolors in ink, with the burlap and Petaloo flowers.....colored in Tattered Angels
Glimmer Mists...right down to the tiny Liquid Pearls dots to add softness.

This will make a beautiful card for a mother's day gift.

Gypsies Moments "Heart with Wings" Art Canvas

Happy Valentine's Day
Canvas Corp Brands

What a great way to celebrate this LOVE Day...than with one of our first Canvas Corp Brands Challenges (see more canvas art on the Canvas Corp Brands blog...they asked us to come up with a canvas to best defines us as a creative person and designer...our style that best suits us. I knew from the moment I saw 7gypsies "Gypsies Moments"  new paper line and 4 x 4 canvas. I started gathering my vintage shabby chic treasures I have laying around my home...to inspire me everyday. 


I also wanted to create my canvas with a "heart with wings"
 and my love for vintage mother of pearl buttons...




Tutorial

Step 1. Take modeling paste and
(this is so fun and great to create your own colored paste)


Step 2. After you blended the mist and paste well...
grab a stencil and pallet knife and smear on the paste over
stencil onto the canvas.


Step 3. Gathering your favorite mist...I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in
 Tattered Leather and Simply Sheer in Baby Blue.
 I also did a white wash over the whole
canvas using water mixed with gesso, then dry.


Step 4. I wanted to give my canvas a antique weathered look and feel.
about a teaspoon full in a tea saucer with water.


Step 5. Brush on glimmer mist wash over the canvas (using 
a brush I control where I want to highlight darker areas).


Step 6. Now I poured the wash over the whole canvas and 
let it set on Canvas Corp canvas then drip excess off the canvas in saucer.

Step 7. Used a heat tool to dry and set the wash.


Step 8. I grabbed my favorite flowers Burlap Textured Blooms by Petaloo
I sprayed these colors on the flower bloom and heat set.


Step 9. I gathered my pieces for my altered heart.
Chip board, Canvas Corp Printed Papers, Heart Die....

Die cut the pieces, glue together, distress the edges, add 
touches with layers of gesso and drying them to bubble...





Step 10. Adding my favorite new papers from 7gypsies "Gypsies Moments"!!




I hope and prayer you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!
