Warm Sun and Gentle Breezes

Good day, fellow crafters. it's Tamara once again, with a new post where I am

going be showcasing my latest card created using Blank Page Muse products! 

As soon as I saw the sets I am showcasing today, I thought of someone special

who loves sunflowers, butterflies, and the color yellow. I ordered them right

away and added them to my craft stash. This card is beautiful yet simple to

make, so let's get started.



You will need the following:

 Blank Page Muse

 Butterfly Breezes

 Blank Page Muse

Blocks Pattern Stencil

 Black ink pad

 Yellow ink pad

 Cardstock –white and yellow

 liquid glue

 masking

 paper trimmer


To craft your card, start by selecting a background panel. You can use one you’ve previously

created or make a new one based on your preference. For this project, the

chosen panel features light pink and various shades of yellow. This panel will

serve as the basis for your stamped images, so choose colors that appeal to

you.


Next, use black ink and the Butterfly Breezes stamps to stamp the images onto

the panel in the colored area of your choice. You can either let the natural

color of the background panel stand out or add additional coloring to the

images. Once stamped, or stamped and colored, fussy cut the stamped images

and set them aside for later.


For the background panel, you will need a piece of white cardstock, the 

 Blank Page Muse Blocks Stencil, and some masking tape. Because the stencil

is smaller than an A2 card, masking is necessary. First, secure the white

cardstock to your work surface and then secure the stencil in place. Mask off

the area where you don’t want ink, and use yellow ink and an ink blending

brush to apply the color. Once completed, remove the stencil, realign it on the

opposite side of the panel, secure it, mask, and ink blend this side of the panel.

Allow it to dry fully.

The last stage is to assemble the card. Using a paper trimmer, cut the inked

background panel to its final dimensions. Trim a piece of yellow cardstock

slightly larger than the finished background panel to create a mat. Once both

sheets are to size, use liquid glue to adhere the background panel to the mat,

then adhere the composite to a white card base. Once dry, orient and adhere

your sunflower and butterflies to the panel. Finally, using the sentiment from

the Butterfly Breezes stamp set and black ink, orient and stamp the sentiment.

With that, your card is complete.

The stamps I used can be found by following the links in the materials list or

Rainbow Colored Mushrooms

Hello! Welcome back to the BPM blog. So glad you are here. I got my inspiration from today's card from a washi tape. I love the colors of the mushrooms that I thought of re-creating it.


 

I am using the following Blank Page Muse stencils:
The mushroom stencil is my most used BPM product to date. I just can't stop coming up with ways of using it!

Simply choose the colors that you want your mushrooms to be, (I went for a rainbow of colors for my mushrooms), then place the stencil over a white 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock. 


Mask off the mushrooms, leaving only the caps to be colored. Use your daubers to add and blend your colors. When all the caps are colored in, then mask them off and repeat the process with the stems. 


Feel free to add a dot of white enamel with a stylus to the mushrooms caps for some fun detail.
 


You can cut this into a strip to mimic a washi tape. But I decided to create a scene on this panel for a note card.

I hope you like today's project. Please visit my blog, Maria Giselle's Creative Cuts, for more details.

Wild Berry Thanks

 Hi there, crafting friends!

It’s design team member Walter back on the blog with you today. I had mentioned in my previous post that I'd be making a card using a scrap from the Wild Berries card panel that I had cut out.  I'm here to share with that you today!

I hate to see really nice scraps go to waste.  I generally save them to put them to use in another card.  It's an easy way to stretch your craft supplies as well as your budget.


Here's what I used to make it:

 Here's how I made it:

  • Stamped the Wild Berries background stamp onto a piece of vellum with black ink and colored in the berries with a blue alcohol marker.
  • Adhered the stamped & colored vellum to a piece of white card stock.
  • Added double sided foam tape to the Wild Berries circular scrap, aligned it with the stamped & colored image, and adhered it to the panel.
  • Adhered the panel to the A2 card base.
  • Cut an A2 sized frame from black card stock, colored over it with a metallic silver glitter marker, put double sided foam tape on the back of it, and adhered it to the card.
  • Colored a scrap piece of white paper with the metallic silver glitter marker, glued a sentiment onto it, and glued it down to my card.

Wonderland

I love my Alice stamps from Blank Page Muse!  Today I am sharing a card that will be a part of my Alice journal. The painting of the roses takes place in The Queen’s Garden of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice encounters the Gardeners painting the white roses red.  They accidently planted white roses instead of red.  If the Queen of Hearts discovers this error, their heads could be at risk!

Stained Glass Flowers

 Hi there, crafting friends!

It’s design team member Walter back on the blog with you today.  You know the old adage "April showers bring May flowers"?  Well, it's certainly true in regards to this card design.  I wanted to capture that in my first project for the month and my thoughts immediately turned to the gorgeous Stained Glass rubber stamps from I Brake for Stamps.  I decided on using stamp #4 as the focal point and the Wild Berries rubber stamp from Blank Page Muse as the background.  I really like the way that they look together!



Here's what I used to create it:

 Here's how I made it:

  • Embossed Stained Glass Flowers onto vellum with black embossing powder; colored the image with alcohol markers; adhered a piece of acetate over it.
  • Embossed the Wild Berries background stamp onto black card stock with silver embossing powder; colored in the berries with Brutus Monroe Creamy Blue Aqua Pigment.
  • Used a circle nesting die to cut a whole in the center of the embossed berry panel; adhered the stained glass panel behind the berry panel with double sided foam tape.
  • Adhered the panel to the card base with double sided foam tape.
  • Stamped sentiment onto piece of scrap gray card stock, glued it down to a slightly larger scrap of black card stock, and adhered it to the card base with double sided foam tape.



 

The black embossed lines, combined with the effect of the alcohol ink on the vellum and the shine of the acetate, truly mimics the look of a stained glass window.  I love it!  And it's a lot of fun to create.

Block Stamped Birthday Card

Hello! Welcome back to the BPM blog. I am glad you are here. I got my inspiration for today's card from a stenciled card with a block design. I thought of recreating the design using stamps instead. 

 

I am using stamps from the Blank Page Muse Scribble & Scratch Mixed Media Set 2 Art Rubber Stamps. I arranged the stamps in a way that it will fill up a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white cardstock panel. I stamped the image using different dye inks. 

Once I was done with the stamping, I did some masking so I can blend ink on images using the same colored ink. I light handedly blended the ink so as not to cover up the stamped image. 


This technique of block stamping with ink blending can be used not only on cards. You can recreate this on a larger panel and use it as a scrapbook panel, a notebook cover, a gift wrap...lots of possibilities. 

I hope you like today's project.

You Make Me Happy

 May The Dragons Be With You


Good day, fellow crafters. It's Tamara, and today, I'm excited to be showcasing my latest card!  Dragons have always intrigued me due to their representation of strength, wisdom, and fortune in many cultures. Particularly in Eastern mythology, they are viewed as protective figures, offering guidance and safety to humans. This card celebrates these powerful creatures, highlighting their significance and the respect they garner across cultures. Join me in discovering the symbolism and artistic portrayal of dragons in my latest design.





To get started, you will need the following:


To craft your card, start by selecting a previously created background panel or a freshly created one depending on your preference. In crafting, prioritizing efficiency and resourcefulness by utilizing any leftover inks, paints, or watercolors is key. Make good use of any leftovers as "dips" for white cardstock, allowing the paper to soak up the remaining pigments. Using a piece of acetate as your artist's palette, simplifies the process, though a glass mat works just as well. This approach not only saves time, money, and materials but also provides a unique foundation for each card you create. This particular piece was a really good fit for a “golden” dragon, so it was exciting to use it. The next step is to employ the Little Draco stamp by Carmen Medlin Designs. Apply black pigment ink to the stamp and press it onto your background panel. At this stage, you can decide to either let the natural color of the background panel stand out or choose to add any additional coloring to the image. In this case, by not adding additional color this allows the intricate details of the stamp to integrate seamlessly with the vibrant hues of the background.

With black ink and the sentiment stamp from the You Make Me Happy stamp set, add your sentiment next. Lastly, trim the background panel to its final dimensions as well as a black mat for added visual appeal. Then use liquid glue to adhere the background panel to the mat and repeat the process to adhere the composite to a white card base. With that, you can call the card complete.

The stamps I used can be found by following the links in the materials list or you can find them with a quick search on www.brakeforstamps.com and  www.blankpagemuse.com
