Birthday Balloons Card

Hi BPM Fans! Betty here today. Blank Page Muse is known for their huge variety of red rubber stamps and now they are also adding photopolymer stamps for those who love clear stamps! Using one of their new clear stamps called Special Day Set Clear Sentiments Birthday Stamp Set designed by Pam Bray, I've made this beautiful birthday card that can be used for any age. This stamp set comes with stamps and sentiments to also make non-birthday cards. 


I wanted to have some fun playing with the balloons and making a fun distressed oxide inked background. Using some Arteza glitter pens, I was able to add some patterns to each balloon. 

Supplies:
  • Blank Page Muse: Special Day Set Clear Sentiments Birthday Stamp Set designed by Pam Bray
  • A2 top folding card base - white cardstock
  • Black cardstock for mat 5-7/8"W x 4-1/8"H
  • Watercolor paper for card front 5-1/4"W x 4"H
  • Masking tape/paper
  • Scrap cardstock, any color, 4”W x 2”H
  • Solvent black ink pad - I use Staz-On
  • Distress Oxide Ink - Victorian Velvet and Picked Raspberry
  • Blender brush
  • Watercolor pens & water brush OR any watercolors of choice
  • Glitter gel pens
  • Washi tape of choice to match your colors
Instructions:
  • Using the solvent black ink pad, stamp five balloons onto the watercolor paper. Then stamp the sentiment.

  • Place masking tape/paper over the scrap cardstock and stamp 5 balloons. Cut out the balloons and place the masks over the stamped balloons.

  • To ink blend the background, use a blender brush and start with the Distress Oxide Ink in Victorian Velvet. Then add the Picked Raspberry, leaving the area where the sentiment a little lighter than the rest of the card. Make sure the edges are the darkest areas. 

  • Using the tube from the water spray bottle, splatter water all over the oxide ink. Wait 15 seconds, then use a clean paper towel to dab off the excess water.
  • Remove masking from the balloons
  • Using watercolor pens or any watercolors, paint the balloons five different colors of choice. Let dry.

  • Using glitter gel pens, add designs onto the balloons, such as zig zig, squiggly, and straight lines. Use different colors to make them colorful. Also, use the glitter pen to color the balloon ribbons. 
  • To finish the card, add decorative patterned washi tape. Wrap the washi tape ends to the back of the card.

Such a fun card to make! It’s fun using different colors and decorating balloons. Thank you for stopping by. Have a creative week! ~Betty~

Say it by Journaling It!

 Hi Again BPM Fans!

Hope you are enjoying the creations the DT have been sharing so far this month - always such a wide range of inspiration and different ways to use our Blank Page Muse Stamps!

Today I am sharing a couple of tags using a gelli plate and stamps to follow our "Say It" theme for the month!

Hope you enjoy!


Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamps: Correspondence Pens, Ink & Postage Set designed by Katy Leitch
Blank Page Muse Stamps: Art Journaling #2 Set "Journal It" stamp designed by Teri Sproul
Small Gelli Plate
Acrylic Paint & Brayer
Black Ink Pad
Tags
Washi tape
General supplies: glue, scissors, scrap black twine, scrap washi tape.

Instructions:
Start by stamping the ink pot, pens and journal it wording onto white card and fussy cut.


Brayer your acrylic paint over the gelli plate.


Use the wording stamp to stamp over the gelli plate.


Lay your plain tag over the gelli plate and pick up the stamped paint. Allow to dry.


Stamp the excess paint the wording stamp has picked up off the gelli plate and stamp it onto a plain tag - this way you actually create two tag backgrounds at once!


Edge the tags with the black ink pad along with the "journal it" wording. Add a scrap of washi tape and arrange your stamped images onto the tag and adhere. finish off with a piece of black twine at the top of the tag.


Happy Stamping!

I am My Own Women Art Journal Page

 Greetings Chris here and today I am excited to share this art journal page I created.  I am trying really hard to create at least one page a month. 


 Looking back at the page, I see that I must have been thinking about climbing this uphill battle of life of a working mom and wife  in a currently very high stress job who loves to create but has trouble finding the time while trying not to slip back down the slope of life.  So let's get started.  

To recreate this Project you will need:

Blank Page Muse Supplies

 Newsprint Paper Doll Large Art Rubber Stamp 

I am my own woman Sentiment Art Rubber Stamp

Photobooth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp

Alphabet Letter Set Sheet Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul

Other Supplies

 Kraft, brown and Cream Card Stock, wide and thin width lace, jute, brown archival ink


Start by stamping your  Newsprint Paper Doll Large Art Rubber Stamp I am my own woman Sentiment Art Rubber Stamp and Photobooth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp Images onto cream card stock with brown archival ink.  Note: I did not use the male photobooth image. 

 




Stamp L I F E using your Alphabet Letter Set Sheet Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul across the bottom of your art page. 

Adhere wide width lace along the left edge of your journal page. 
Create "tightrpoe" by adhering thin width lace going uphill across the page. 
Tie jute around your art journal page as shown. 
Cut 
Photobooth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp image and mat onto brown card stock. Adhere to wide lace are as shown. 
Detail cut your 
Newsprint Paper Doll Large Art Rubber Stamp  and assemble on your page. 

Finish your art page by cutting your I am my own woman Sentiment Art Rubber Stamped image and matting on brown card stock.  Adhere to your page. 




 

I hope you are inspired to get creative with your Blank Page Muse Stamps.

Layered Leaf Background

Hello friends. I am here today posting for Blank Page Muse.  I loved the variety of leaves in the Leaves Rubber Stamp Set Sheet by Terri Sproul. My design centers around multiple leaves stamped in different Distress Ink colors.


I wanted an unusual color combination, so I selected Olive Green, Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber. 


I began by stamping the center leaf on a cream colored A2 sized cardbase. I recommend always starting in the middle and working your way out so you don't end up with an open space. After inking up the stamps, I spritzed to allow movement. I overlapped the stamps for interest. 


I love encouraging stamps and this one was perfect for this card! I clear heat embossed the sentiment using Seedless Preserves ink on Kraft Cardstock. After trimming it down, I cut a piece of cream cardstock 1/2 inch wider than the strip by 4.25 inches. I inked the edges in Seedless Preserves and mounted the sentiment strip on top.


I trimmed the stamped piece to 3.75 x 5 inches. I cut another piece of cream cardstock to 4 x 5.25 inches and inked the edges with Seedless Preserves. This provides a great base for the stamped piece. The last step was to assemble the 3 base layers and add the sentiment strip.

Love You Card

 Hello friends! Today I am on the blog with Blank Page Muse with a card created for all those June weddings and anniversaries you will have this summer!


Supplies used - 

White cardstock
Black cardstock
Pink Cosmic Shimmer
Twine
Blank Page Muse Love you Stamp (see below)
Heat tool

Lots of how-to pictures on using Comic Shimmer check out my Flamingo Card using Blank Page Muse stamps

I love making CAS cards and this one was quick to put together! First of all, I cut my cardstock down for the card front. I then squirted some Cosmic Shimmer on my table and spritzed it with a little bit of water then dipped in my card, drying with a heat tool between layers of color. I like to dry my card to get the most of my color on the paper.

I then set this aside to dry a bit more on its own or naturally. I then stamped my sentiment (my sentiment is from Blank Page Muse but it is one that I cut from other words. I have a tendency to cut my words up so they are more versatile) and inked the edges with pink ink. 

I then stamped my Lady and Man Clock stamp on the front of my card with Versamark Clair Ink in Nocturne with my Misti. I stamped the image twice to get a good inked image. I then assembled the card by gluing down the sentiment and punching some small holes to add the twine bow. Then glue the black card stock to the card front, then the stamped image to the front of the black cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by!

Baby Elephant!

 Hi BPM Fans!

Can you believe it's June already? this year is going so quickly!

It's Winter here "Down Under" so perfect weather for being indoors creating with my Blank Page Muse Stamps!


Our "theme" for the month is "Say It" - this makes me think of words - so today I have created a newborn card with the word "baby" and I think that says it all to explain the card purpose!


Supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamp: Cute Baby Animals II Set - Baby Elephant
Blank Page Muse Stencil: Hearts Stencil designed by Magda Polakow
Stamped Pattern Paper: See my Post from March
Base Card
Black Ink Pad
Alphabet Die Cuts & Die Cutting Machine
Ink Pads & Sponge
General supplies: scissors, glue, coloring mediums, embellishments

Instructions:
Start by Stamping the little Baby Elephant onto white cardstock and color with your fav coloring mediums. Fussy cut.


Next step is to stencil your base card using the Hearts stencil. Use a sponge and colored ink pads to cover one corner of your card front.


Use your alphabet die cuts and scraps of patterned/stamped card to make the word "Baby".


Arrange your main stamped image with coordinating embellishments - fiber, hessian and adhere to the card front. 


Add your die cut letters and you have completed your card!


Such a perfect soft colored card for a newborn!

Thanks for joining me!

Happy Stamping!

Sharon

Summer Wildflowers Greeting Card

 Summer greetings from Chris!   I love my flowers and especially love getting glimpses of wildflowers along the side of the road or when out on a summer vacation. 


When I saw these stamps in the Blank Page Muse store, I knew I just HAD TO have them! 

These stamps can be used as 1 larger set or cut apart for individual stamps. I choose to use them as one stamp. 

To recreate this card you will need:
Blank Page Muse Supplies

Fabric Swatch Texture Art Rubber Stamp

Other Supplies

Kraft Card Base; Kraft, brown, white, and green card stock; Punches - leaf vine, circle;

Shape scissors; Brown ink; Printed sentiment on white card stock;

Jute; Burlap flower


Start by cutting your kraft card stock to be slightly smaller than your card base.  Using brown archival ink, stamp Fabric Swatch Texture Art Rubber Stamp repeatedly to create background. Note: the background edges will show. 



On white card stock, stamp Summer Wildflowers Postoids Collage Art Rubber Stamp.  Trim stamped image and then mat onto brown card stock. 


Wrap jute around matted Summer Wildflowers Postoids Collage Art Rubber Stamp image.  Add to your stamped background piece.  Punch leaf vines and adhere to card front as shown. 



Add Burlap flower to card front. 

Print sentiment and cut out using punch or shape scissors.  Matte sentiment onto a circle punched from brown card stock. Finish your card by adhering your card front to the kraft card base.
