‘Create’ Steampunk Mixed Media Canvas

Hello friends!  Happy Saturday!  Today is my turn to post over at the Brutus Monroe Blog, so be sure to hop on over there and subscribe to get updates and inspiration from the design team using Brutus Monroe products!

Oh I had so much FUN playing around with all of the really cool “Steampunk” products that came out this month from Brutus Monroe!  Today, I’m sharing this mixed media canvas project that I made:

Vicki-BM-SteampunkCanvas

This was so much fun to just get “messy” and enjoy a different creative process other than making a card!  If you’ve been around my blog for a while, then you’ve probably seen me share a different project from time to time.  Sometimes I just like to ‘change gears’!  Hahaha!

So I had this old 8″ x 10″ canvas laying around and thought it would be cool to take several of the Brutus Monroe Chipboard pieces I had and make something.  I started off by taking some wooden letters from my stash and gluing those on.  I then took the Brutus Monroe Stencil of the Month (gears) and randomly added embossing paste through it over the canvas.  Once dried, I then painted over everything with some black gesso.

I’ve used several metallic paints from my stash and using my “finger tool” I went over all of the textured areas of the canvas and along the edges.  I also used the paints to paint over the Chipboard Gear Background which was randomly cut out with my scissors and glued randomly over the canvas.  At first I was thinking it was weird to mix the different color metallics together, but then thought that steampunk can sort of be like that anyway.

What’s hard to capture in a photo is that gorgeous Gilded Sparkle embossing powder over the wings!  It’s stunning IRL!  I’ve heat embossed the Chipboard Wings with it and then I heat embossed the Chipboard Key with the EPOTM (Gadgets and Gizmos).  I went around the edges of it with some silver metallic paint so that it showed up better against the black background.

For the image, I stamped the hat (what a cool hat BTW!) from the Steampunk stamp set with Raven Detail Ink onto an already cut out Alabaster Cardstock from the Steampunk Cutfile.  I colored it up with several different Aqua Pigments and sponged around the edges of it with some brown ink.  I also took some Copper metallic paint and went around the edges too.  I took the heat embossed wings along with that hat image and splatterd them with some black paint as well.

The wings were attached onto the canvas with some black foam tape and then I curled the ends of them that are hanging off the edges.  I attached the heat embossed key in the center of the wings and then added the colored image over top.

For a little bit more texture on the canvas, I decided to take the EPTOM (Gadgets and Gizmos) to randomly heat emboss areas that were sprayed with water.  The water was just so that the powder had something to stick to and then once heat set, I added more until I was happy with it.  I like the look of the embossing where the spray marks are.

Lastly, to finish it off, I’ve used the metal gears, ribbon (tied in bow over top of the key), gold pearls (painted in copper metllic paint), and sequins from this month’s Inspiration Box – as well as another gear (attached in the center of the ribbon bow) and a clock button (painted with black and metallic paints) from my stash that was all glued on.  I also added some silver glitter to the center of each sequins.

Brutus Monroe Steampunk Style

Hello friends!  Welcome to the weekend!  Hope you’re all doing well and have some fun plans!  I have some happy craft time planned while hubby works overtime!  🙂

I am SO excited as yesterday afternoon I received my Brutus Monroe Inspiration Box!  (Unfortunately it has been sold out, but I will link to some of the items below that you can purchase seperately if you’re interested.)  This box was filled to the brim with LOTS of cool items, so I couldn’t wait to make something to share today with you:

Vicki-BM-SteampunkBox

This was something a bit different for me as I don’t believe that I have ever gone in a “steampunk” direction before with my cardmaking, but I had so much fun putting the different metallics, sparkle and shimmer on this!

I started out with a Brutus Monroe Alabaster cardstock base A2 sized and top folding.  I took a piece of BM masking paper and used a circle die to cut out an area.  I used the negative of that piece to go over the entire front of the card base.  I then took the Stencil of the Month along with the sample size glitter glaze from the kit and spread it over the circle opening on the card base.  (Set it aside to dry.)

I then took some paper from the kit and used the embossing folder from the kit to get the texture and then sponged one some Alabaster Ink to bring out the texture.  I also used a circle die cut a bit larger than the circle on the card base to make a frame with it.  I attached the silver ribbon from the kit around the bottom of it and then attached the panel over the white card base.

Lastly, I colored the very cool hot air balloon image from the stamp set called Steampunk (of course!) with not only the Aqua Pigment of the Month, but also some other metallic Aqua Pigments like Penny and Brass!  The roses were colored with a past subscription.  There is a cut file for this stamp set, but I decided to just fussy cut around it this time.  I popped it up over the card with foam tape.  I then took some of the cool sequins from the kit and attached it randomly to the design.

The photo doesn’t do the sparkle and shimmer justice.  I need another video for it! LOL!

Here’s a closer look at the hot air balloon image along with the pretty sparkle from the Glitter Glaze.  I like the different color metallics to play with from this kit!  Even the enamel pin that comes in the kit is adorable!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today using some items from this month’s Steampunk Inspiration Box.  I had lots of fun playing around with it and I know that I’m not done yet!  I have more ideas floating around in my head that I’d like to try, so stay tuned!

Brutus Monroe JunkieFest Class Projects

Hello friends!  Just wanted to pop in and share the projects I made for this fun class I took!  As you know, I am a huge fan of the Brutus Monroe products and I heard that they were going to be at an event called “Stamp Junkie Fest”, which was held during the time I wasn’t well and wouldn’t have been able to go anyway.  I had never heard of it before, but it sure sounded like it was something I would love!  I’ll have to look into that next year!  🙂

Anyway, Brutus Monroe was teaching a class over at the event, but they also offered a fun “JunkieFest 2019 Class Kit and Video” from their store for those of us that were not able to attend!  It was full of lots of cool things and plenty to complete the projects below plus I had some things left over too:

Vicki-BMJunkieClass19-foiltag

The first project was this ginormous, very thick tag!  It measures approximately 9.5″ tall and 5.25″ in width!  I thought it would be cool on a project you frame or hang from the wall.  Thinking about a burlap or something. hmmm…..  Have any suggestions?

Everything you need except the stamps, ink and adhesive come with this class kit.  So the background was foiled (foil included in kit) and I used my own tape adhesive to do that with the stripes for the background.  The wreath was made with a chipboard circle from the kit which the flowers were attached to.   I stamped and cut out the flowers from the BM Spring Wreath stamp set which were colored with some of the Aqua Pigments that were included with the kit.  I used a deco foil pen to create “dots” in the center of the flowers and used the left over foil from the kit.  I curled up some of the edges of the flowers for added dimension.

For the banner, I used one of the sentiments from the same stamp set and stamped it out with the Brutus Monroe Raven Detail Ink over the tag included with the kit.   I decided to change mine up from the way it was shown in class.  So I cut off the end and added it underneath the wreath.  Then I took the twine from the kit, doubled it up and added it as a bow on the bottom of the wreath.  I took a cute bird button from a past Inspiration Box and glued it to the center of the twine bow.  I thought to add a bit more color along the edges of the tag and sentiment banner with the BM Alabaster Ink which I think softened up the edges nicely.

Vicki-BMJunkieClass19-ChromaGlazeCard

My second project was this card!  The background was created with some sample sized Chroma Glazes from the kit.  I chose to use a past stencil I had from the “Stencil of the Month” club (Speaking of which, did you see this month’s?  Wow!)  The Chroma Glazes really blended nicely together…love how it turned out!

I decided to matt my stenciled background onto a BM Macchiato Cardstock A2 sized card base and also create an oval matt for behind my oval image panel.  There was an oval piece and full base card piece that came in the kit, but I decided with all of the Aqua Pigment coloring I did, I needed to use the Aqua Pigment Paper for stability.  I used the Aqua Pigments from the kit as well as pulling in some browns and blacks from my stash.  I mixed colors together to get the look I wanted.   The image was stamped out from the BM Feathered Friends stamp set.  I stamped the branch first, masked it off and then stamped the bird so his tail was behind the branch.  I then stamped the bird again and cut out his claws and attached them over the branch.  It makes it look more dimensional that way and so it really looks like the bird is perched.  I added some color to the background with the yellow Aqua Pigment from the kit.

I took the sentiment from this same stamp set and heat embossed it with some BM Alabaster EP and cut it into a banner to pop up over the card with some BM Foam Tape.  I took the Acrylic Bubbles that came in the kit and colored the backs of them with a yellow alcohol marker and attached them ranomly to the design.

Vicki-BMJunkieClass19-minitags

The final project for the class was making up these set of tags!  These tags came in the kit along with the blue twine.  There wasn’t quite enough to string the 5th tag, so I took a piece from my stash.  Not sure if I was supposed to get 4 or 5 tags…but I got 5! 🙂

I didn’t have the same stamp set that was shown in class, so I thought it would be a good idea to make up some birthday tags that I can add to gifts and/or cards!  So I used the BM “Birthday Circle” stamp set from a past card kit and colored them all in with the Aqua Pigments from the class kit.  I just cut pieces of the twine and added them to the top  of the tags.  Simple, but fun!

Hope you’ve enjoyed my project share from class!  Thanks so much for dropping in today and I’ll be seeing you soon!!  Have an excellent weekend!

I’m back! It’s Been a Rough Patch!

Hello friends! 🙂  Are you still with me out there?  (This is a bit of a long post to catch you up with what’s happened.)

Wow!  It sure has been a while since I’ve been able to even TRY to get back into things.  This was a really abrupt and rude unplanned disappearance from me and I was getting worried for a while about how I would even begin to start up again!  I actually feel pretty “rusty” and unpracticed from my abscence and I have a few things to share with you too!

Firstly, I want to thank you ALL from the very bottom of my heart for your wonderful comments, personal e-mail, cards and social media contact that I’ve heard from many of you.  There were days that I just went to tears hearing from my fellow crafty friends as it came on a few days that I REALLY needed it the most!  I thank you SO MUCH for that and it really helped to get me though some difficult pain days.

So what happened was a worsening of something that I believed to be a minor back issue that I thought would resolve on it’s own, but the issue grew worse and more painful to the point that I couldn’t sit, stand, walk or even getting out of bed was painful enough that I had a procedure to try and control the nerve pain.  With this done, along with physical therapy and adjustments to my life style, I am feeling better now.  It’s not COMPLETELY pain free, but it’s tollerable enough to do normal tasks for a period of time until I need to move around again.  It’s just a life style adjustment that I can live with and hopefully fit in with what I love to do which is crafting!  It really bothered me to just “walk away”, but sometimes when your health is in trouble, you just have to do what you have to do and heal.  I have just learned that SEVERAL small breaks a day are better than none at all and I will pay for it later if I don’t!  🙂  Thanks for sticking it out with me!

———————————————————————-

And so with that, I would like to share a couple of things that actually took way longer to complete than what I would normally take the time to complete and it was actually the very last little bit that I had accomplished before I had to completely step out of my room for a while.  My husband wouldn’t let me go back in there until he was sure that I could tollerate my pain ok.  Still working through the exercises until my follow up Dr. appointment, but I think I’ll be fine from here…I sure hope so as I’m ready to ROCK N ROLL!!!  LOL

I had made a couple of Father’s Day cards that I hand dilevered:

Vicki-Brutus Monroe-Rock ON

This one I made for my brother.  He has always loved his rock-n-roll and we share similar tastes with each other, so I thought this was really appropriate for him.

Although I don’t have a black  light, my brother does and I told him to hold up the card to a black light and the  Brutus Monroe Neon Aqua Pigment watercolor background that I made will glow!  It’s a pretty cool affect!  I used most all product for my card from the Brutus Monroe Rock On Inspiration Box. (They don’t have the card kit available any longer, but CLICK HERE for the stamp set and a few other elements from it.)

I took one of the foilable image panels from the kit and took several of the Neon Aqua Pigments and smooshed them over the background until I was happy.  I tried to foil over it, but it didn’t completely get all of it.  I added the strip of holligraphic paper at the bottom and the stamped elements along with the stars over it.  For the sentiment, I heat embossed it with the Brutus Monroe Mic Drop EP that came in the kit and popped it up with foam tape. (That stuff is so awesome, I had to grab a big bottle!)  He seemed to like it and I think those neon watercolors are pretty cool myself! 🙂

Vicki-NN-FathersDay

And this is the card that I made for my dear ole dad!  This is probably one of my all time faves from Newton’s Nook called Winston’s BBQ.  I think they have had this set for a while, but It’s a great one for masculine themed designs!

I’ve used a kraft cardstock background and stamped several of the images from the set all over the background with the same color of ink.  For the main panel, I stamped Winston, the grill and sentiment together and colored with my Copic markers.  I also sponged some blue ink around the edges of it for a “sky” looking appearance.

I’ve taken a strip of silver foil cardstock and ran an embossing folder through it to place across the center of the card.  I used some foam tape to pop up the image panel over top.  All of these layers were placed over an A2 sized white top folding card base.

I was happy to give dad a smile that day!  He likes to cook on the grill.

Of course, last but not least, I wanted to share a card I had completed for a guest design card meant for June and that was completed at the end of May, but I was unable to share it before I had to leave for a while.  This is the card I gave to my husband for Father’s Day and he really does feel like my super hero! 🙂

Vicki-PNDSuperBoyDog-June15

Isn’t this just the cutest?!  I made this card using the adorable Paper Nest Dolls Superboy Owen and his sweet companion Superpuppy too!  I had so much fun blending the background in the different colors!  I added some blue stars stamped in the background.  the city scape behind him was made with a city scape die cut layered a couple of times.  I used some yellow cardstock behind the building for a lighted building affect.  The wall was made using some gray colored cardstock and then a brick stencil with some red ink colored embossing paste to over it with.  Then I just added the sentiment by white heat embossing it over a black strip that I die cut out.

Vicki-PNDSuperBoyDog-June15-close

Here’s a closer view of the coloring I’ve done on the images.  I’ve used a silver gel pen to color in the buckle on his outfit.  I fussy cut the images out after coloring.

Here you can also see the splattering that I’ve done with some white shimmer paint in the background with the blue stars.

If you haven’t yet, PLEASE hop on over and check out the Paper Nest Dolls store, (Digital storeblog and join in the group over on Facebook for inspiration too!  Can’t wait to share more with you soon!!  Their badge and store link are also available on the left side of this blog as well!

————————————————————————– Other news

I actually got a bit of really cool news while I was down and thanks to a lovely craft friend, she tagged me and let me know about this, but my set of Whimsy Stamps “Bee cards” were shown in the Making Cards & Papercraft Magazine for August 2019!  Chosen as a “top spot” editor’s pick right inside the front cover!  I was very surprised and to see what was said about it along with my blog address was pretty cool!  So go get your copy of this magazine!  It’s my first time having a peek at it and they’ve got some pretty neat inspiration in there!

Although I have been in a great deal of pain and mainly dealing with what came with it, of course my husband was great at trying to “distract” me from it and trying to get me to smile as much as possible.  He knew first hand how I was feeling each day and like I mentioned above, he’s my super hero!  So there were a few fun or smiling moments here and there while I was being patient with myself as much as I could anyway.

Vicki-backyard fireworks

I wasn’t able to do much to celebrate 4th of July, but going out in my backyard, my neighborhood seemed to have a pretty cool display!  You can see the half moon at the bottom underneath the left side of the firework.  Needed bug spray, but it was a nice night!

Vicki-Styx Concert

Back in April, hubby and I had gotten some Styx concert tickets and I was worried about going due to the problems I was having.  Of course hubby said not to worry about it as our seats were great with no one behind us so I could sit, stand or whatever I needed to do!  It was loud enough with the music and it took my mind off things plus I could always clap and sing the songs!  🙂  We took a good break in the middle of it so I could move around away from the seat too.  It was a great concert!

Vicki-Black Eyed Susans

In my backyard, I have different flowers and I really enjoy going out in nature to see the flowers, birds, bees, etc.  The flowers this Summer really helped me relax, smile and just enjoy the beauty that is around.

Some days were absolutely horrible, but there are also these days too…

I’m soooo happy to finally be able to write up a post and now that I’m able to start getting back into my stamp room, I’m very excited to be able to come back to my design teams (who were ALL so absolutely wonderful with letting me have the time to heal and recover!  It meant so much!) and I will be along again soon to share new creations now!  Yay!  Hope everyone is doing well and I’ve missed you!

Cute Card Thursday is Square

Hello friends!  It’s “Hip to be Square”, right?!  That’s what the theme of this week’s new challenge is over at Cute Card Thursday!  So please hop on over and check out the inspiration and play along with us!  Here’s the card I’ve made for the challenge:

Vicki-CCT583-square

What better card to make than one for a crafty friend! 🙂   I’ve used a past Simon Says Stamp card kit from February 2018 for this one.  I thought that I would carry the “square” theme throughout the design. – It’s great to pull out past kits and have a play with them!

The stamp set is called SSS Crafty Friends (Still available) and I’ve randomly stamped some of the images on a vanilla colored cardstock and then cut out each one with a stitched square die cut.  I’ve also used the same die to cut out a square piece of decorative paper contained in the kit which also has a colorful square pattern on it.

For the paint pallete image as well as the tube of paint panels, I took some of the watercolor provided in the kit and added it for some color with a water brush.  I took some twine and wrapped it around the top left panel with the hearts and sentiment and then placed the bow over top.  I then added the scissors wood veneer over top which was also included in the kit.  The turquoise colored cardstock base and squared layered panels also came from the kit as well.

Vicki-CCT583-square-close

Here’s an even closer look at the different squared panels .  You can better see the watercolor over the panels as well as the turquoise colored Nuvo Glitter Drops that I’ve added to the paint tube on the bottom panel.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my “SQUARE” card and I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery this week too!  Be sure to stop by the Cute Card Thursday blog and take a look at the rest of the inspiration from the design team!

Happy Spring With Brutus Monroe Beautiful Blooms

Hello friends!  Just popping by to wish you all a wonderful weekend and to share a “Happy Spring” card to make you smile:

Vicki-BM-Beautiful Blooms

I’ve just gotten this month’s Brutus Monroe Beautiful Blooms Inspiration Box (sorry, sold out!) and was wanting to play with the lovely stamp set and products inside!  I also wanted to play with the Buttercup Aqua Pigment released this month too.  (For Aqua Pigment subscribers only.)  If you haven’t tried coloring with these Aqua Pigments, they’re so so pretty! – (See a closer view of my image below!)  They have just released some NEON ones that are so awesome!  You can color them on black cardstock and they glow so bright with a black light over them! -see his video on it HERE (started at 15:30)  Reminds me of those glow in the dark necklaces as a child! – Hope to be trying some soon!

So for my card, I started with the glitter embossed panel from the kit and took the Sea Glass ink pad that came with the kit and ink blended over this panel.  I cut it down and then die cut a scallop piece of the purple cardstock from the kit and then attached it to an A2 sized top folding BM Alabaster piece of cardstock.

Although I really liked the sentiments from this month’s stamp set (Spring Wreath), I wanted it to be Spring-like, so I took a sentiment from last month’s Inspiration Box (Some Bunny) and stamped it with black ink over a piece of vellum and then clear heat embossed it.  I cut the strip into a banner and then ran it through my Xyron machine to get it sticky and attached to the bottom of the card front.

Lastly, I’ve attached the image with foam tape over the card front panel and then glued a bow made with some of the ribbon from the kit.  I then atached some purple colored gems, also from the kit, randomly over the front.

Vicki-BM-Beautiful Blooms-close

Here’s a closer view of the watercolor I’ve done over this image.  First, I’ve heat embossed the image and used the BM Aqua Pigments to color it in.   I’ve slightly tilted it so you can see the pretty shimmer that these Aqua Pigments give to the look of it!  The regular colors don’t shimmer, but the metallics (linked above) do shimmer beautifully!  There are so many cool things you can do with these and maybe some day I can share more! 🙂  I then glued the bow of the wreath image and popped up the wreath to place on the front of the card.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today and I wish you all a very happy Easter!  Thanks so much for stopping in!  See you soon!

It’s Easter at Cute Card Thursday!

Yes!  Hello friends!  Easter IS on the way, isn’t it?!  I remember many Easters ago of hiding the eggs for the kids and then forgetting where I hid all of them myself, so I had to join in the Easter egg hunt too!  LOL!  Do you have any fun Easter memories?

So since it’s Thursday, it’s time for a fun new challenge at Cute Card Thursday!  Obviously, the theme this week is “Easter“!  We look forward to seeing what Easter makes you’re making this week, so come join us!  Here’s my card:

Vicki-CCT577-SSSEgg-stra Sweet Easter

I had alot of fun creating this card!  I couldn’t help myself, I had to snatch up that Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Egg-Stra Sweet Easter card kit. (Sorry, it’s sold out, but you can still purchase the stamp set, Background stamp, egg dies, and stencilseparately from the kit though.  I have actually used all of those items on my card today too!

For the background, I took the jelly bean background stamp and clear heat embossed it and then while I was cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die, I also took one of the egg dies and cut out the center of the yellow card panel.  I cut a piece of white cardstock the same size as the yellow layer and then used the stencil and the Nuvo mousse that came in the kit and sponged it over the white panel.  I layered this piece along with a black heat embossed sentiment over vellum on a strip to wrap around the yellow panel along with a piece of black cord at the top.  I took some foam tape and mounted these pieces onto a white A2 sized top folding card base.  Lastely, I’ve added some clear sequins filled with some Nuvo glitter drops in the centers.

Vicki-CCT577-SSSEgg-stra Sweet Easter-close

Here’s a closer look at this sweet little Easter bunny that I’ve colored in with Copics.  I fussy cut it out and then decided to line up the bottom of it and cut it out with the same stitched die that I used on the yellow background panel.  I kept his ear out of it.

I took the glossy accents that also came in the card kit and covered the jelly beans with it.  I also took a couple of metallic gel pens to make some dots on a few of the Easter eggs and center of wheel.  Up close, you can see some of the shimmer from the Nuvo mousse in the white background egg that I stenciled on.

Lots of fun little details going on in this card, but that’s what I love about Easter…so many colorful and happy things going on!
