Spoon Flower Canvas with Lori

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a fun canvas project that was super fun to make and I love the way that it came together…

20160527_174433 (003) (002) 20160527_174520 (003)

Below I have listed all of the supplies used as well as instructions for creating this 5 X 7 canvas. This would make a great anniversary, birthday or “just because” kind of gift!

Supply List: 5 x 7 canvas, Adirondak Gold Paint, Distress Spun Sugar Paint, Swirl Stencil, Ranger Crackle Texture Paste, Impression Obsession (IO) rubber stamp, Rub-Ons (from my stash..we all have them!), Kaiser Kraft Cottage Rose paper, Ideaology Cabinet Card & Frosted Film, Glue gun, Tacky Liquid Glue, Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Spoon Flower* bit of gold paint along the edges of the flower.

Here is how this canvas came together: apply a coat of spun sugar paint all over the canvas, sides too and let it dry. Using a stencil, apply the crack texture paste in opposite corners of the canvas and let it dry. Next, prepare the cabinet card by painting a layer of gold paint on the front of the card. Cut a piece of the Cottage Rose paper to fit inside of the cabinet card. Be sure to cut the paper a little bit smaller than the card so that it will fit inside. Layer the frosted film on top of the sized Cottage Rose paper and insert into the cabinet card. Stamp the IO rubber stamp sentiment to the right side and centered. Apply tacky glue to the back of the cabinet card and attach to the canvas making sure it is centered. Apply rub-ons around the cabinet card frame and also next to the stamped image. Add gold paint on the front edges of the canvas and along the sides. I used my finger and applied a thin layer of the glitter gel around the edges of the canvas. *Spoon Flower: I used white plastic spoons, cut them down and melted them into the petal shapes. If you are going to try this, make sure your area is ventilated. Once I have enough spoons melted, I glued the pieces together to form and create the flower. The flower was then glued to the left side corner of the cabinet card. The final step was applying a bit of gold paint along the edges of the flower.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and the project that came to be! It was really almost an accident type project and I find that sometimes those turn out to be the best kind!

See you at my next post!

For You Card – with Erica

Hello! It’s Erica, and this month I’m back with a card that uses beautiful new Prima products. I was so excited when The Crafty Scrapper started carrying Prima products again; they have always been one of my favorite brands.

This card uses papers from the new Tales of You and Me collection. I started with a beautiful pink Bazzill cardstock that I layered with an image from the Contes de Toi et Moi paper and a patterned piece from the backside of this paper.

I cut a spray of flowers from the Belles Melodies d’amour patterned paper and gave it some dimension with pop dots.

I added Diamond Stickles to the roses around the young maiden, and layered flowers from Prima’s Box Flowers – Documented Beauty and Tales of You and Me – Love Letters collection. The “For You” tag is also from the Box Flowers set.

A little seam binding ribbon is tucked behind the flowers to add more texture and softness.

Looking forward to seeing you soon at the Crafty Scrapper!

“Creative Chemistry-LIVE”  $85

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between many of Ranger’s inks, paints, and mediums, as well as the “science” behind what makes them work?Creative Chemistry-LIVE is based on my popular online workshop series Creative Chemistry 101/102. This workshop will give you the chance to experiment hands-on and learn a selection of techniques from this series including a few from the upcoming Creative Chemistry 103. This is not your typical project based class, but rather a creative exploration where our main objective is the mastering of technique. We will focus on creating technique tag swatches with step by step instruction labels and assemble them in a Worn Cover Composition Book for a technique reference journal to use throughout your creative journey…

Uncle Sam says “God Bless America”! with Tina

Hello, Tina here with another creative card for you.

In my last class, one of the cards was a triple fold card.  I thought it would be fun to show you how easy that card is to make, this time using the new Patriotic line from Photoplay.

I also made a fun Uncle Sam embellishment to add to the belly band of the card.

To create the card, you will need cardstock cut at 12″ x 5 1/2″.  Score at 2″, 4, 7″ and 9″.

Decorate the panels.  The belly band measures 8 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ and is scored at 2″ and 6 1/8″.

Uncle Sam is super easy to make too!  His hat is white cardstock 1 3/8″ square with two red cardstock strips of  5/16″, and a dark blue horizontal piece.  I added a blue star.  I used a die, but a punch could work too.  I also used dies for both the circle and the scallop circle to create the face.  I did use a small circle punch for the nose.  The eyes and mouth are drawn with a pen.

Easy Peasy!

 Be sure to check out my card when you are at our favorite scrapbook store!

Happy Stamping!

Dream Big – with Amy

Hi y’all, Amy here with a project that’s kind of special to me! The last six months or so I’ve been going through lots of personal changes and growth. When I found this saying on the Webster’s Pages “Painted Passport” paper, I knew I wanted to feature it in a BIG way.


I found this stand down at Carolyn’s shop. (It’s turquoise underneath!) This is not at all what I envisioned doing with it when I bought it.

I sprayed these large letters with Maya Road Black Soot distress spray. Once dry I painted them with Bo Bunny Glitter Paste to bring the pink back in.

Flowers are always a focal point of my projects. The more I can layer the happier I am. Lots of different ones working here and all the colors in the Dream saying allowed me to bring in lots of different colored flowers to the layers.

 Go see Carolyn and the gals down at The Crafty Scrapper for all these goodies and more! And in everything you do – DREAM BIG!

 Happy Scrappin’!

Encouraging Words….

Hi everyone! It’s Gena and I wanted to share a wonderful idea one of our customers, Patrice White, shared with me on Saturday.

Patrice has a friend that has been undergoing medical treatment for a long term illness. As you can imagine that can become very difficult to remain positive everyday and not become discouraged. Patrice had a wonderful idea to send her a scripture each day to encourage her. She will text it to her but then she will write it down on an index card. She purchased the Heidi Swapp Index holder, index card die and a Spellbinder divider die. At the end of a week she will gather the cards and send them to her friend. The friend can them read them while she is getting her treatment. How wonderful is that!


Thank you again Patrice for sharing your idea!
