Make Today Beautiful with Inspired by Stamping

Today I would like to share with my "Make Today Beautiful" Card using Inspired by Stamping Creative Tags, Single Fancy Frame and Happy Occasions Stamp Sets along with Graphic 45 Bohemian Baazar Paper Collection. I layered my pretty pattern paper on to a 4 x 9 Kraft Card base, added a bit of white lace ribbon and brown twill to the top of my card before I wrapped a sheer brown polka dot ribbon around the card and tied a pretty bow.
I stamped my label with Bahama Blue and ArtPrint Brown ink, fussy cut it and the tag that I stamped with the ArtPrint Brown ink, layered them with pop dots and placed the label next to the bow.
Here is a closer look at my card. I hope you try your had at multi layering and always remember to decorate the inside of your card. Hugs Pammejo

Fall Candle Jar with SinCity Fall Collection 2 Stamps

I wanted to share with you today how to take an ordinary candle and make it extraordinary, decorate your mantel with it or give it as a is still a special accent....
I started with a candle that I picked up at my local craft store for 1/2 price....can't beat that can you....
and using my my Fall Collection 2 stamps from SinCityStamps  (which there is a coupon on my side bar that is good til Oct 1st). I stamped my pumpkin onto white card stock twice, coloring both images in with my Copic Markers, fussy cutting them both out and layering them together to give dimension.....

I tied black twill around the jar making a bow prior to placing my pumpkin on with pop dots....add a Martha Stewart spider to help hold the twill into place. 
I added three different colors of twine around the brim of the candle jar, added a bubble to hang from it and tied it in a bow so that it would fold into the twine. I also added a bit of Couture Creations Glitzin' Glamour Crystaline to the leave along with a bit of bling. I hope you try making a fabulous jar candle this week....hugs Pammejo

Thanks Card with SinCity Fall Collection Stamps

Fall is in the crisp air and beautiful leaves...a time to give today that is what I would like to do with my "Thanks Card"....I am so thankful to have SinCity Stamps add me as a designer to their fabulous art team, to have beautiful paper like the  Robin's Nest Paper to work with, fabulous inks and markers....funny to give thanks for some big steps and small in my creative journey. I have so many people and opportunities to be thankful for that words sometimes are not enough...I am sure you know what I am trying to share....
so for my card...I started by placing Robin's Nest Black and White papers to my Kraft card base, stamping the Thanks sentiment from my SinCity Fall Collection Stamp Set. I also stamped the leaf from the set twice...once on a 2" white square and then stamping a second to a piece of white card stock, coloring with my Copic Markers and layering them to the top of my card front once I had my leaf fussy cut out and layered to the top of my mats. I tied my black sheer ribbon to the top of my card so it would go on top of my scallop border but under my matted images. I hope you take time today to give thanks for your creative journey.

Sweet Friend Card with Inspired by Stamping

Good Morning Sweet Friends....can you believe it is the beginning of is so hard to believe how fast the year has went by....but there is still time to think about all the fun times that we enjoyed over the summer and maybe do a few more BBQ, picnic, etc.
Today I want to share with you a fun card to send to a "sweet friend" of mine just because I miss her....I used Inspired by Stamping Mason Jar Summer Add Ons and Beautiful Iris Stamp Sets. I stamped the Mason Jar Summer Add Ons fruit twice with green and red ink, fussy cut them out and layered them together with pop dots. I used the Sweet Friend sentiment from the Beautiful Iris Stamp Set stamping it on a 1 1/2 x 1 3/4 piece of paper with red ink, inked the edges with brown and butterscotch ink and layered the image on a second piece of paper with pop dots. I place all three pieces over the top of my inch ribbon border that I had placed on my card, along with a pretty bow.
Placing a flag banner that I fussy cut from a piece of the paper and a small strip at the bottom of the sentiment along with some gemstones to finish my card.  I hope you take a moment and send a special friend or two just because...I know I enjoy receiving them in the mail. Hugs Pammejo

Smile Card with CSW Distributers

 Hello it is Pam here today sharing with you my "Smile Card" using Couture Creations Petal Pleasures from the Fresh & Fun Collection. To begin with I went to the archives of my mass paper stash and found some Bo Bunny papers that I had forgotten about....I am sure if you are a paper crafter/scrapbooker you understand what I mean by the "archives" of paper stashes....anyway...I began by placing my pattern paper to the top of a Kraft 4" x 5 1/2" paper.
 I ran my Couture Creations Petal Pleasures through my die cut machine using Core'dinations Color Core paper....once I had accomplished this I sanded it lightly with my Couture Creations Sanding Block and adhering it to the top of my paper with my 1/4" Double Sided Adhesive Tape. I placed small clear gemstones from Couture Creations in the centers of each of my flowers.
Adding a fun strip of matching paper and a sticker border to the top of the Petal Pleasures center prior to placing your fussy cut flowers on to your card front with Couture Creations Foam Mounting Tape. I hope you enjoyed my card today and that it made you Smile... Make sure to check out the CSW Distributors Blog to see what the rest of the design team has been up to....I am sure you will be completely inspired. Hugs Pammejo

Watering Can with SinCity Stamps Fall Collection 2

My sweet friend Eileen Hull sent me her fabulous Sizzix Watering Can die to try....what can I say but that it is amazing....I so love it with the stamps I designed for SinCity Stamps called Fall Collection 2by Pam Bray. Today is the first time I am using my sunflower and dragonflies from the set. I stamp them with black memento ink and colored with them in with Copic Markers.
I colored several images so I could fussy cut some to create layered embellishments, added them to skewers I wrapped with green floral tape. 
Once I had all the pieces cut and layered, I added Glossy Accent to the center of each of the sunflowers and dragonfly bodies. Allow the Glossy Accent to dry completely before placing them in to your watering can that you have covered with Graphic 45 French Country paper.
 I added a fun sheer distress yellow bow to the side of the flower, adding another or the dimensional dragonflies to the top of the bow. 
Beads make fabulous legs and I added a couple to the bottom of my decorated watering can to complete my project. I hope you stop Eileen Hull Blog  and SinCity Stamps to check out all the fabulous products, inspiration and of course my New Stamp Line....Hugs Pammejo

Peace Card with Couture Creations Peace and Joy Embossing Folder

Can you believe that the holidays are just around the corner, so it is never to late to start thinking of making your Christmas Cards, decorations or gift giving ideas....Couture Creations has a new Wrapped in Joy Embossing Folder Collection so get ready to see some amazing inspiration from the design team. Today I would like to share with you my non-traditional  "Peace Card" using the Peace and Joy Embossing Folder.
I started my card by running a 5" x 7" piece of white card stock that I cut on my Couture Creations Precision Trimmer through my embossing machine.
I repeated with my purple and blue card stock along with some pretty stripe paper.
I love to fussy cut so that is what I did with my Peace from the blue card stock as well as following the embossed lines to cut the stripe piece using my Precision Scissors....may I say these are fabulous, so precise.
I rubbed the Purple Glitzin Glamour to the top of each of the ornaments with my finger tip and with a piece of scrap paper I kissed each ornament to pick up the Glitzin Glamour that may have gone on of the image line.
I then took the paper piercer from the Handheld Essential Kit and with them tip placed a bit of the Aztec Gold Glitzin Glamour over the top of each of the string embossed lines.
I used my Couture Creations Foam Dauber and a bit of Concord Grape Ink to ink the edges of my white card base prior to putting it together.
I layered all the pieces to the top of my purple card base using Couture Creations Double Sided Tape.
Add the "Peace" embossed image that I had previously fussy cut to the top of the stripe strip with Couture Creations Foam Tape.
Making sure to place a pretty bow to the top of each ornament....
of course make sure to add a few Blue Gemstones to the strip and "Walla" you have just made a lovely nontraditional holiday card.
You can see all the Wrapped in Joy Collection on the Couture Creations Website. Hugs Pammejo

SinCity Stamps Art Journal Page

Art Journaling Pages are all the rave right I thought why not give it a, so here is a sneak peek at a part of my page using SinCity Stamps Art Journaling with Terri Sproul Stamp Set and  Birds and Clocks Stamp Set.
 So here is my first let me share with you a few of the simple steps to make it but remember every page will be uniquely done because no can control the spray of the mist, the depth of the modeling paste, etc but you will get an over all feel of the project as you read on....
 I began by die cutting out to large Tim Holtz tags, one from chipboard the other from a piece of white card stock, gluing them together (I use glue sticks) and adhered them together.
I stamped my Art Journaling brick background stamp with the Memories Black ink, stamped it in a couple of places on the tag. I then used another of the background stamps and this time I inked the stamped, stamped on a piece of scrap paper and then stamped on my tag to give it a muted look.
I sprayed the tag several times with Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange, Postbox Red, and Cut Grass Green Dylusions Spray. To get the look I wanted I sprayed several light coats of each color, dabbing off between spray, letting it dry and respaying. It took a bit to do it but you can speed up the process by using a low temp embossing gun. 
I stamped my Clock Stamp from the set onto white card stock using Memories Black Ink, cut it out....
Sprayed it with the Lemon Zest, Postbox red and Vibrant Turquoise using the same technique I shared on the tag. 
I stamped my calendar page that I am using for my art journal book the two different flourishes from the Art Journal Stamp Set using Memories Black Ink.....
I also used the word journaling stamp and Memories Crimson Ink at the bottom of the calendar page, I sprayed the page with Lemon Zest and Melted Chocolate Dylusions Spray and allowed it to dry before I continued.....
Once dry I used a stencil, modeling paste, and a palette knife to put my texture along the page sides and the circle clock I have cut out. Make sure to allow the modeling past to dry completely or you will have a smeared mess.....
 Once the paste has completely dried I laid my tag down to get placement for the Art Stamp I was going to be stamping on my page using Memories Art Print Brown Ink, Mare sure to move your tag before you start stamping......and once finished stamping adhere into place.
 I added a few brads here and there to my project.....

Along with metals, gemstones, a flourish I painted with a Red Pepper Paint Dabber, ribbon, word stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle....

Make sure to check out all the fun stamp sets at SinCtiy Stamps, please feel free to follow our SinCity Stamps Blog and we also have a Pinterest account if you aren't aware of that. I also hope you try your hand at art journaling I know I had a great time making my first page and the Memories Ink stamps are the way to go when using sprays and mist. Just sayin'.....Hugs Pammejo
