Teddy Bo & Co. Throwback to the 50s

Hello and welcome here!   Just popping in to share my latest Teddy Bo & Co. card, it's Bea from the 50s, it's part of the June membership pack.  You can check out the action over on the Teddy Bo Facebook page!

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
I coloured Bea and the jukebox using Prismacolor pencils.  I decided to keep the background to the card simple so that it didn't outshine the image.  I even paper pieced the border on the wall.  Instead of making a larger card to put my image on I chose to keep the card base small so that it had a more 3D effect...and I think it really showcases the image.


 Recipe:  Prismacolor Pencils (I had started a list of the colours I used but then when I got to the jukebox I forgot to keep track, oops.)  Bazzill CS-white, black & turquoise, Teddy Bo Digital Image June Membership, Foam Squares, Glitter CS.

Enjoy,
Deneen

I made a hanging ornament this month.  I used a 3 3/4" diameter styrofoam ball as my base.  I covered it with 4" wide organza ribbon and then added Arianna Lace Die diecuts and the flowers are from the Birds & Blooms set.  I stamped the flowers and cut them out using the matching die, I then coloured the tips of the flowers using Faded Jeans Distress Ink, I then shaped them using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.


I attached the flowers using a straight pin, I then added Silver Ice Stickles to the centers to hide the pin.

Teddy Bo & Co. May Inspiration with Bea

Hello and welcome here!  It's time to share some Teddy Bo & Co. inspiration.  This time I have a discovery I want to share with you.

Card Size:  4.25" x 5.5"
 
There was some conversation going on on the DT about whether or not you could watercolour a digital image.  If you can get your paper to go through your printer it might just work.  Here's what I did...I printed my image on watercolour paper, let it dry overnight and then hit it with my heat tool for added measure.  I didn't have any issue with the ink bleeding.  I have a Hewlett Packard inkjet printer, I had to help the paper get started feeding but once it started it was fine...I used Strathmore 140lb paper.  






 I used Distress Inks to colour my image.

Distress Inks Used:
Dress - Tattered Rose & Wild Honey
Fur - Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo & Wild Honey
Flowers - Faded Jeans
Background - Pumice Stone

Recipe:  Paper-not sure, sorry:(, My Favorite Things Inside/Out Stitched Ovals, Spellbinders Lacey Ovals, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders, Bazzill CS-Mocha Divine, Strathmore Watercolour Paper Cold Press 140lb., Distress Inks, Foam Squares, Flowers.

Enjoy,

Heartfelt Creations April Blog Hop

Hello and welcome here!   It's time for  Heartfelt Creations Alumni May Blog Hop and this month I get to start us all off.  You can find the Blog List at the end of my post!  At the end of the month, past HC DT members get together for a Blog Hop full of inspiration using some of our favorite Heartfelt Creations collections!



By visiting all the stops and leaving a comment on each, you'll be entered for each comment (one per blog) to win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Heartfelt Creations store! Contest closes Monday May 1st midnight EST.  The winner will be announced Apr. 3rd on the HC Blog and Facebook page.  Good luck and have fun!

 Card Size: 6.25" x 6.25"
Doesn't it feel Spring-y!?!  I used the Flowering Dogwood Collection and since I don't have the matching stamp set yet, I used my Botanical Rose stamp set and Distress Inks to make the flowers.

I used the Eyelet Oval die as a mat for my flowers and pinwheel.

I layered some of the flowers.  I also shaped some of the same flowers differently.  I love how you can get different looks with the same stamp set.

I love the dimension you can achieve.  People are always amazed the first time when you show them how a flat piece of cardstock jumps to life when you ink and shape it.


For my pinwheel I made a little template for the individual vanes, I traced it and fussy cut it out 7 times.  I then folded them and joined them together to make my finished pinwheel.  As an added surprise I die cut one of the Arianna Lace dies and folded it to attach to the center, I finished it off with a rhinestone.


Recipe:  Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood Collection, Botanical Wings Die, Botanical Wings Stamp Set, Eyelet Oval Die, Arianna Lace Die, Classic Leaf Stamp Set, Classic Leaf Die, CTMH CS-White Daisy, Bazzill CS-green, CTMH Ink-Whisper, Distress Ink-Dusty Concord, Scattered Straw, Faded Jeans & Aged Mahogany, Foam Squares, Rhinestones, Viva Decor Glitter Holo Iridescent. 


Now it's time for you to hop on over to Kathy's Blog.  Good luck with the contest!
Enjoy!
