Get Messy!

Today we are going to get messy! Ripping pages from books, finger paint, and because that's not messy enough! We then will grab our stamps and ink pads.

Rubber stamps used:

Additional items needed:
  • Imagination
  • Scissors
  • Alcohol markers
  • Acrylic paint
  • sharpie marker
  • Ink
  • An old paper book
  • Thick Card Stock
  • Glue 
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
1. Cut your card stock paper to size. I made mine into postcards 4" x 6." 
2. Rip pages from you old book. I then tore off the edges adding texture. Before gluing the book page to my card stock.
3. Slap on the acrylic paint the messier the better it'll look. There is no right or wrong way. I used my fingers paint to paint the postcards with. Use as much or as little paint as you wish. I used blue, white and black around the edges.

4.While the paint is drying its time to stamp. Get your little sea dude and sea weed out and stamp them on white card stock.
5. Color them anyway you wish. I used my alcohol markers.
6. Cut out your stamps. If you lose any details you can take your sharpie marker and draw them back on once you glue you stamps in place.
7. Add the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the eye and the monocle eyeglass.

Hope you enjoyed this messy postcard. 
If you have any questions feel free to message Lasheet and if you choose to make your postcard tag her and Blank Page Muse. Thank you, happy crafting!! ♥

Enough Tag

 Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya, and I am back this month with a vintage inspired tag I created using the Photo Booth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp and the ornate frame from the Love, Faith and Family Vintage Art Rubber Stamp Full Sheet


BPM: Photo Booth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp 

BPM: Love, Faith and Family Vintage Art Rubber Stamp Full Sheet

MISTI Stamping Tool

Waterproof Black Ink 

Paper Cutter 


Craft Knife 

Watercolor Paper

Watercolor Paints, Chalk Inks and Water Base Inks 

Watercolor Brush

Kraft Cardstock Tag

Various Patterned Cardstock Scraps 

Thread, Cheese Cloth, Cording and Seam Binding  

Diecut Machine

Tim Holtz: Botanical 3D Embossing Folder

Tim Holtz: Tiny Clips

Sequin and Gems

Various Diecuts and Punches

Enough Sentiment (from the computer) 

Foam Pop Dots

Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive 

The first thing I did was cut out a tag, place into the Botanical 3D Embossing Folder, run through the diecut machine and then lightly ink over the raised areas with a couple different colors of blues and light green chalk inks.

Next stamp the Photo Booth Woman Stamp onto the a piece of watercolor paper, cut out and use an assortment of watercolors and inks to paint the image. Lightly ink the edges with a chalk ink to add a "faded look" to the image.

Stamp the ornate frame with the love sentiment in the center onto a piece of watercolor paper. 
Use a craft knife to cut the love sentiment out of the center of the frame and scissors to fussy cut out the excess and the around the frame.
Watercolor the frame a light brown and once dry lightly ink over the edges with a gold ink.

Adhere the ornate frame to the tag, glue a piece of patterned cardstock to "frame" the woman image, a larger piece of patterned cardstock off center and a decorative diecut together before adding foam pop dots and placing onto the tag.

Attach a Tiny Clip to the top of the woman image along with loops of thread.
The bottom corner of the tag adhere loops of thread, cording bow, cheese cloth and a tiny piece of seam binding.
I added a fussy cut butterfly (from a piece of cardstock), flower diecut with a sequin and gem and leaf sprig, a tiny gem to the decorative diecut and the enough sentiment that I printed from my computer and glued toward the top to finish off this tag. 
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Rainbow Flowers

  Hello friends, so glad you stopped by! I am working on cards this month for Blank Page Muse. To create this card, I used a large background stamp and a sentiment stamp. Blank Page Muse background stamps cover a whole card front. 

Supplies - 
White cardstock
Black cardstock
Archival ink in rainbow colors

I love making cards! Here is how to create the above card - 

1. I used a stamping platform, attached the Scribble Daisy Collage stamp to the platform then using the colors, stamped them each separately until you have the rainbow on your card. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. 

2. Lay this panel aside to air dry a bit and stamp the sentiment on to a scrap of white cardstock then glue this onto a piece of black cardstock.

3. Glue the Scribble Daisy panel onto a white card front then add the sentiment.

You now have a wonderfully colorful card to send to a friend.

Background and Focal Point Stamping

 Hello friends! Teri here posting this fun springy card made using one stamp for both the background and the embellishments!

Teal is one of my favorite colors! I created this fun slimline card using the Lotus Flower with Small Dragonfly Stamp.

There are two components for this card! I started by stamping the background using both the flower and the dragonfly stamp on white cardstock with grey ink. I always start near the center and stamp outwards rotating the stamp to assure good coverage. Once I was finished, I die cut with a slimline die. This piece was mounted on a Slimline base with a Teal cover.

Next step was to stamp additional flowers with black ink on Cougar 80 lb cardstock. After coloring with Copics, I fussycut them out individually and arranged them on the front of the card.

The final step was to add this cute sentiment Always keep your face toward the sun.

I do have a fun video documenting the process here:

Thanks so very much for stopping by today! I hope you are inspired to try background stamping. Be sure to check out the huge variety of stamps from Blank Page Muse.

Hello Sunshine

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here again dreaming of hot summer days.

Cut cardstock 5" x 5" and stamp the umbrella in the center using several colors of ink.  Add color to the background with Distress Oxide Inks creating a small sandy section to break up the card.   Make the top portion of the panel a little darker than the bottom portion.

Mat the panel with blue cardstock before adding to a card base.  Stamp the phrase and place it on the left side with foam adhesives for dimension.

Use Stickles to add some sparkled to the umbrella and add a little to the sand.

Spring Floral Cart

 This month the design team was challenged to create projects with a nature theme. So, today I am super excited to share this stunning flower cart card I created using one of my favorites stamps  Flower Cart Line Art Style Rubber Stamp for cards by Rick St Dennis.  I just love coloring this image and bringing it to life! I just love all the details in this stamp. 


Supplies needed: 

Blank Page Muse Flower Cart Line Art Style Rubber Stamp for cards by Rick St Dennis

Mixed Media Paper,  Water Color markers, water brush, card stock, archival ink

Start by stamping your Blank Page Muse Flower Cart Line Art Style Rubber Stamp for cards by Rick St Dennis onto mixed media paper. Using watercolor markers, trace lines of your stamp 

Using a water-brush, spread watercolor ink out to color your cart. I added a few touches of the golden brown ink to give my cart a even more weathered look.  
Continue coloring your image.  It helps to color different flower areas and then move to a different area so your colors don't mix. 

Continue coloring and bringing your image to life. 

Once completed and dry, mat your image onto car stock and then again onto mixed media papers. Cut corners of you mixed media paper and then mat onto card stock again and add to your card base. 

I hope you are inspired to try coloring these images!

Collage Art Journal Page

Hello, Monique here, today I have made an art journal page.

Lately I am very much into putting collage pieces on my art work.  It's a great way to use up some of you old papers you have laying around. They don't always have to stay the way they are, you can use Gesso or paint to make them match your page. This page has a bit of a vintage look but of course you can go for any look and colors you like. Remember there are no rules or mistakes in art journaling, so go and fun playing in your journal.

Supply List:

Flower & Bird Skeches stamp set SC97

Matte Medium


Water Soluble Crayons

Distress Ink (Rusty Hinge)

Paper scraps

Colored pencils

See detailed instructions in video here:

 here some close up photo's

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day! I'd love to have you follow/subscribe on my YouTube channel

Dragonfly Journal Page

 Hello and welcome to another tutorial. I am Suzette, a guest designer here at Blank Page Muse. In today's tutorial, I am going to show you how to make a journal page using the small dragonfly stamp by Pam Bray Designs. The optional theme this month is nature and I think a dragonfly is one of the most beautiful creatures in nature. 

The supplies I used in this project are:

Follow the steps below:

Step one:

Apply the texture paste to the journal page. Work in a random pattern leaving lines and peaks. When the texture paste is dry, add some watercolor paints to the page. Allow that to dry.

Step two: 

Stamp the dragonfly onto the white card stock with embossing ink. Sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat until it is melted.

Library - 1 of 1.jpeg

Step three:

Using watercolor paints, fill in the white areas of the dragonfly. Highlight any areas with a black gel pen or pigment pen. Cut out and set aside.

Step four:
Stamp "Happiness is..." on white cardstock using black pigment ink. Cut off the word happiness, go around the edges with the ink also, and set aside.

Step five:
Gather your dragonfly, corrugated cardboard strip, handmade paper, black card stock, and the word "happiness." Decide how you want to layer them and where you want to glue them. 

Step six:
Attach each layer with glue and use foam tape to attach the dragonfly. Stick it onto your journal page. 

    Your finished page.

    Thank you so much for stopping by! I do hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
