Blueprints Cupcake

Happy Monday!

Can you believe it's October already! I'm so relieved that cooler weather is heading our way. I'll be leaving for Wisconsin in a few days and hope it's somewhat chilly. Of course last year, it was blazing hot and we went to a Packer game in shorts.
 
Towards the end of each month, I organize and put away the remaining supplies from that month's Club Scrap collection. I bring out stamps from other vendors and create some goodies with my neglected stamps and dies. This process allows me to dust off some stamps, find some long lost supplies and also cleans off my work space in the anticipation of the newest release.
 
I'm so in love with the Tim Holtz Blueprint stamps but I sometimes have a hard time creating artwork with them. Thanks to Pinterest I've come up with some fun color combinations.

Club Scrap paper. Tim Holtz stamp and die. Stickles. Copics and Gelatos for coloring and splash. Cuttlebug embossing folder.
 
This card was created for the Card Concept Sweet and Sour challenge. I thought these bright colors would be great for a birthday theme. I chose to do a mixed media style and use Copics, Stickles and Gelatos on my card panel. Even used a drop pearl for the flame.

Orchard Watercolor

Welcome to September's Artist Team Blog Hop brought to you by Club Scrap. This month we've been challenged to incorporate watercolor techniques with our projects. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to dust off those Faber-Castell Gelatos.  If you just happened on the blog hop today because you're a regular reader of my blog, and you'd like to view the entire hop, you can start back at Club Scrap. If you're already hopping and linked to me from Tina's Blog, you're in the right spot. Gelatos are acid-free pigment ink sticks that can be used with or without water.  I love the bright colors and creamy texture of the Gelatos.  The fact they look like lipstick tubes is kinda cute too. 1. Directly color the stamp with your gelatos. I usually start with the lightest color first and work to the darkest. 2. Mist water directly on to the stamp. 3. Stamp image onto paper.  I used all sorts of papers: cardstock, watercolor and mixed media papers. I d…
