Good morning!  WOW what a busy, busy week.  I’m still not fully settled into the studio . . . and it’s definitely not set up the correct way yet!  When I was trying to work last night I couldn’t remember where I had put anything . . . I walked in circles trying to find different things I KNEW that I had carried downstairs and put away!  More time . . . that’s all it will take . . . more time for me to work and get the kinks ironed out and things put where I’ll remember where they are!

Today is my day to post on the eclectic Paperie Blog!  I’ve stepped back to my stamping roots and made a tag with lots of techniques.   I’m needing to find some mojo (which I think is on an island somewhere, with cabana boys and little umbrellas in its drink).


I hope you’ll join me on the eP Blog for more details and photo!

Thanks for stopping by here today!

Good Tuesday morning!  I’ve got one more Wendy Vecchi inspired card today.  I can’t say that this is going to be my last one  . . . because I’m having way too much fun making these!  I’m absolutely relishing the fact that I finished 3 cards yesterday and typically it takes me close to 2 days to finish a project anymore.    I even like the idea that they are completely flat and easy to mail . . . AND THE BEST PART . . . they are still mixed media!

That’s it . . . mixed media on a mini canvas . . .  easy peasy lemony squeezy!

Plus because I’ve been using Spellbinders™ Matting Basics Die Templates for die cutting the paper I’m working on, then using another for the card base, all the guess work is taken away.  I’m telling you . . . . a quick (less than 10 minute die cutting) card!  For my stenciling I’m taping down the die template to the paper and using a stencil brush to add the ink . . . it can’t get any easier!


While waiting for Kate to pick up Hadlee today the idea for this one came to me.  Well actually, I was napping and Mallory was messing with Hadlee . . . the flowers (Inspired by Nature) and some of the background stamping (Sanded Background) are old SU favorites that I keep hanging onto.  The sentiment “Thanks” is from Quietfire Design – Thank You (set of 4), and was stamped in Archival Jet Black.

Once again I used Broken China, Bundled Sage and Wild Honey Distress Paint for the background.  The flower stamp was colored with Tombow Markers and when I misted the stamp, I accidentally picked up my Mini Mister filled with Copper Perfect Pearls  . . .  so, I had to add some copper splatters from my Krylon pen.  The heart was stenciled with both Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass.

That’s all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Well, I just couldn’t help myself!  I headed back into the studio to make another simple layered card with what looks like plenty of white space.  Well . . . white space for me!


For this card, I decided to work with my new Distress Paints for the background.  I smeared down some Broken China, Wild Honey and Bundled Sage on my craft sheet.  Misted them all with water and then drug through my damp watercolor paper.  The paper had already been die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ A2 Distressed Edges.

Instead of die cutting a stencil for the heart, I used the Classic Hearts die template itself as my stencil.  I taped around the edges with painters tape, but sadly I missed some on the top edges . . . that’s where you can see a blue halo . . . I like it!  The heart was outlined with one of my Zentangle Pens.

Oh and before I removed the Classic Heart die template, I over-stamped the script background from Studio 490 Live and Make Art in Antique Linen.  The sentiment, Wish, from Studio 490 Just Word Art, was stamped in Archival Jet Black.  The numbers background from Art Parts was stamped along the side in Shaded Lilac.

Using my new, just received, Studio 490 Stencil, Wildflowers & A Bird, I added a flower in White Embossing Paste.    The flower was colored with Distress Markers in Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord and Walnut Stain.

As a final embellishment to the image, I couldn’t help my BAD self . . . I spritzed on some gold flecks with my Krylon Gold Leafing Pen.  Thank goodness I was able to find some new ones recently!

All I can say is . . . Thanks for the inspiration Wendy Vecchi!  I’ve had a blast making these cards!
