It’s looking a lot like winter on Mushroom Lane.  Love all the new additions to the Mushroom Lane line of stamps from Riley and Company. For this project I used the Snowman House (ML-2418). You can get this one and the rest of the Mushroom Lane line at Riley & CO.

Lisa’s Look at Tim’s Tag for September 2016

tag9-16-1

This month I played with the techinques Tim used. I liked using the Distress Paints on the background. You can check it out here. Then I worked at using the Yupo paper, the alcohol inks and the Archival Inks. (Check out Tim’s technique here.) I just didn’t like the results I was getting. So I went with plan B and tried the Speciality Stamp Paper and the alcohol inks.  I was happy with my results. Then for embellishments I used some foil tape to create the leaves. I loved how the tags turned out so much I made a card for my husband for his birthday. (I will add a picture later. I forgot to take a picture before I gave it to him.

The ladies in class at Cafe Crop enjoyed making the tags.

Tickled Tuesday at Riley & Company

It’s Tickled Tuesday at Riley & Company. Check out what some of my MooseMates, Katie Skiff and Joy Stagg came up with this week. Here is what I have been working on.

With it being Back to School Time, I used the Mushroom Lane School House to create a shadow box that a teacher could place on a desk or shelf. I used multiple layers for the schoolhouse to create dimension.

I also created a card for the in honor of the end of summer and beginning of fall.  I used the A Fallen Leaf stamp for the sentiment and solid card stock and inks for the leaves. I love how the leaves look somewhat realistic.

The Painter Riley and Life is Art was a fun card to make. Love the sentiment… it is so true.

Tickled Tuesday at Riley and Company

MushroomLaneHouse2.1I have been loving the new Mushroom Lane Stamps at Riley & Company. Today I am featuring Polkadot House and House 2. I stamped multiple images of each and colored them with colored pencils. For this one I used some mulberry paper for the background and added cotton balls for the clouds.  I even used sand for the pathway.

Here you can see some of the layers.  The roof has 3 layers and the roots in front are two layers.

Here is the Polkadot House in purple and greens.  Again I used multiple layers for the house.

Fourth of July Celebration 2016

July7This Fourth of July was special celebration for our family. My daughter’s fiancce was home on leave. This is the first Fourth of July they have spent together in the same location.  So I sent them out to have fun and take lots of pictures (of course).

July3

For my layout, I started with 2 – 8.5″ x 11″ pieces of Basis Blue Cardstock. I edged it with some red, white, and blue ribbon from my stash.

July1 July2

Next, I used my eClips2 to cut out the fireworks and my title. I used CCS Silver Glitter Cardstock and Basis Red Cardstock. The fireworks die cut is from Miss Kate’s Cuttables. As you can see the silver layer is very detailed. It cut easily once I increased the pressure setting one step (from the heavy cardstock setting on the eClips2). I saved the pieces I removed from the centers to add to my fireworks.

July4

I attached the layers and added some additional silver streamers.

July5

I also cut a shadow layer for my title.  Love how the glitter paper sparkles.

July6

Some of the pictures I also matted with the CCS Silver Glitter Cardstock or Currency Cover Silver.

July8

I created a second layout in a 12″ x 12″ layout for my daughter’s book. I left space for her to add her own journaling.

Thanks for checking it out.
