My go to printer brand for years has been HP. I also use their ink supply service where I pay a monthly fee and they send me ink cartridges as needed. It comes out to be a lot less money this way. The HP Envy Inspire is a great-priced machine that will produce beautiful prints.

And if you are looking for a great crafting weight paper for printables, I have been using HP Project Paper. It is heavier than copier paper but not quite as heavy as cardstock. It is a great medium weight for layering, folding, and more!

DIY Watercolor Butterfly Ephemera

Using stickers from the Dollar Tree you can watercolor them in a variety of different colors and designs. DIY ephemera is unique and can save you money. Using the sticker from the Dollar Tree was easy but you could alternately die-cut your shapes as well.

The close-up image gives you a better look at some of the details on the wings. This was a very relaxing and enjoyable project. I love the results just as much as the process of painting them.

Having Fun with Punches

for Tag it Tuesday

tag and card

This week’s tag is colorful and playful. I pulled out a variety of coordinating papers and my round punches. After punching out a bunch of circles, it was time to play.

papers

The card stock I am using came from CutCardStock. I picked colors and weights that went well together.

punches

I grabbed a variety of different sized circle punches. Use what you have on hand. This technique is meant to be playful and expressive.

inside card

I had so much fun making the tag I used the left over punched circles and made a birthday card. They coordinate well together. I even added a few circles to the inside of the card.

Paint Swiping Technique

Tag it Tuesday

both tags

This week’s tags use a paint-swiping technique that can end with very different results each time you do it. I am using premium paint from DecoArt that has a slightly transparent appearance.

tags in process

The image above shows the tags in process after the paint has dried. The colors are so vibrant on their own, that it was hard to add additional items on top of the paint.

Video Tutorial:

The close-up image shows how the paint bends together. *This premium paint by DecoArt has been discontinued. If you find it available, buy it now. I am happy to have a few tubes of it for future use.

Making Little Houses with Kokorosa

little houses

These little houses were so fun to make using a die from Kokorosa. This is a great project to use up small pieces of cardstock. The dies also work well with small die-cutting machines.

die-cutting

The dies fit perfectly in a Sizzix Sidekick machine. I was able to cut a variety of little houses in no time at all. It was really fun to mix and match the different colors to make the houses.

Tag it Tuesday – Donations

finished tag

This week’s tag is created with materials that were donated to me by DecoArt, TCW, and AALL & Create. I started with a painted piece of cardstock. The cardstock had paint that was left over from another project but I knew I wanted to use it. The colors were too pretty not to do something with them. So I cut the piece into a tag.

materials

Using a stencil from Divinity Designs, I covered the tag with stencil butter from TCW. I knew I wanted a stencil that wouldn’t cover too much of the paint colors and this floral design worked well.

In this close-up image, you can see how well the colors work together.

A Simple DIY Foil Technique for Tag it Tuesday

finished tag

This week’s tag uses aluminum foil for an embossing technique. Using aluminum foil for crafting offers a variety of different looks. I applied foil onto the cardstock and then embossed it. From there, I roughed up the embossed image and applied ink.

embossed foil

Here is a close-up look at the embossed foil and cardstock. You can see some of the sanded surfaces on the raised image. This step is optional and is not needed if you want to add ink. You do need to be gentle if you choose to sand the foil because it can tear easily.

Freebie Friday – Floral Paper Bags

Foil Technique and a Die

with Kokorosa

Finished card

This card can be used for so many different occasions. I am not sure which makes it more beautiful, the die or the foil technique. Together they are exquisite.

Kokorosa provided the Bubbles Background Board die for this post. If you would like to get the same die, here is a discount and link.

It is so interesting how the foil looks like it is on top of the die cut, doesn’t it? The close-up shows the colors reflecting well.

The close-up image shows how the double-layered paper appears embedded by the embossing. The cutout circles remind me of a compass and now I think the word wander would have been a great choice! Have you tried this technique?
