Wednesday November 21, Foamiran Wednesday




Candy Reid Mills

Wow,  isn't this a beauty? Candy sent directions on how she made her card, here they are.


I used  a Grand Nestabilities Die called Grand Labels Eleven and cut out two pieces of card stock. I put a crease in one about 1 inch from the top with my score pal and glued it to the front piece so I had a large card that would stand up. Then I used - a “falling snow” mask and put embossing paste on the
front.  

I used the Whimsy Die called “ Build a Poinsettia” and cut out a lot of all 3 sizes of the leaves and 3 of the middle calyx, out of Foamiran. I coloured them with chalk and shaped them with my fingers. I added Crystal Lacquer to the centres and dropped gold beads into it.  The sentiment comes from Tailored Expressions. I stamped it with Versamark Ink then gold embossed it. I cut it into the shape and put on 2 sequins.


Thank you so very much for sharing with us today Candy! Your card is just beautiful!

Now, onto Shawn's Store news!

Thursday November 16th - Foamiran Pointsettia Tutorial

Today we are sharing with you a tutorial using the new Stencils at Magnolia-licious.


1. Use a stencil to draw a shape of a smaller leaf on the Foamiran. You can use a toothpick, BBQ stick or anything with a pointy end.





2. This way we have a very clear shape of a leaf on the Foamiran.




3. Time to cut it out.




4. For this card, I need a smaller flower, so smaller leaf. I have to cut off in the place shown on the photo.




5. Now I am using my leaf as a template for more leaves.




6. For one flower, I'll need 8-9 leaves.




7 & 8. It is easy to cut a few leaves at once.





9. I am using a leaf mold to add texture to my leaf. To achieve a nice texture, place the leaf on the iron first (or heat with a heat tool, but don't burn the foamiran) for a few seconds, place it on the mold and press. After a few seconds you will have leaf veins on your foamiran leaf.




10. Fold leaf in half and stretch a bit at the top of it.



11. Time to stick the leaves together. I am using the hot glue, only on the photo, you can see the craft glues as I wanted to show you exactly where to apply the glue.






12. The black line shows you where the glue goes.




13. Here I have the first layer of my flower. I usually use 5-6 leaves for it.




14. For the second layer I use 3 leaves (petals). Cut them slightly smaller to go in the center of my flower. In the middle I am using Stamens or other flower centers.
To achieve colored leaf veins on the light Foamiran, I ink the mold before pressing the leaf into it.




 Now you can add gesso or glitter to finish your flower.


Aren't these flowers gorgeous?!
Shawn has all the supplies needed to make these flowers in the store!


Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you try your hand at making these gorgeous flowers!

Monday, November 13th - Foamiran Flowers



Today Rene has made a cute little Christmas card using Foamiran. She has used (which die)
to cut the Foamiran and then heated it, shaped it, added Stamens, and made this adorable little poinsettia type flowers! I love the look of black and white, with a touch of red, don't you?


Have you started making your Christmas cards? Are you making multiples of the same card, or making different cards for some people? Do you buy some Christmas cards to give out?

Shawns store has so many beautiful colours of Foamiran, and a ton of different Stamens,  Check them out here:

Thank you for stopping by today, and have a wonderful day!

In the store, Shawn has a couple things he would like to me mention.

The DooHickey Kit #17, Silent Night, is supposed to be shipped to him next week!!  Maybe we will be able to get in some Christmas cards using them before THIS Christmas! As you all know they are shipped from Magnolia Sweden, so they do take some time to get here. We will keep you posted as Shawn is updated on the arrival of this kit!

Shawn also has a few of the Vintage Box #5 left. If you're wanting one, you best act fast.
This is a Vintage themed Box, included are mixed products such as: Non-cute rubber stamps, Vintage themed dies, Ephemera, Vintage patterned paper, glitter, pearls, and a beautiful magazine from Magnolia Sweden. These boxes come out 4-6 times a year, in a Limited Amount!

Wednesday November 8th, Tilda in Bath


Karen has used the image Tilda in Bath and Bath Tub from the 2012 Princes and Princesses Collection. The card base is Kraft cardstock, and the background paper is a watercolour paper pad from Hobby Lobby. The saying has been cut out of vinyl and then adhered to the card and the sequins added. The images have been coloured with Copic Markers.

Doesn't this card just make you go awwww. She is so cute! Love the addition of the sequins as well, just makes the card fun!

Thank you for sharing with us Karen!

Oh my, I just ordered some of the new Glitter Stamen from Shawn, and they are just gorgeous! Have you been checking out all the new Stamens he has been putting up in the store? Keep a watch out, as they are being added all week.


I also ordered some of the Silk Foamiran. This stuff is amazing! It's so soft, and easy to use. You don't even have to use an iron at all, it's so pliable.
seriously, if you haven't ordered any yet, I highly recommend you do! Even if it's one sheet to start with. They come in 2 different sizes.


Oh, one more thing before I leave you. Have you seen the paper pads and paper that Shawn sells? He carries Maja, Lemon Craft, and Pion Designs. They all make me drool (gross right?). Lemon Craft has just come out with a new collection, it's purple, and it's making me swoon. I want some, I need some!! Are you listening Shawn? lol I guess the old credit card has to come out!  I'm definitely a purple girl!


Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I wish you a happy day!
