Try It Tuesday~ Gelatos and Darkroom Door, making a background!

Hi guys!
Thanks for stopping by for Try It Tuesday!
I have a set of cards I created using Gelatos and a Darkroom Door
 background stamp.  

  First on watercolor paper and then on white cardstock.

Instructions~
* All you do is rub the Gelatos over the background stamp.
* I sectioned it off and did one color at a time.
* Use a spray bottle with water and wet the rubber stamp after you have applied the Gelatos.
* Let it sit a minute, to mix with the Gelatos.
* Lay your watercolor paper over the stamp and press all around the area.
* Lift the watercolor paper off and let it dry.
* Cut the stamped background to the size you want and mat it on your card.
* Stamp a focal image on the background you created.
* Add embellishments and sentiment.

* Do the same thing for the white cardstock~

They turned out different and unique!  I saw this on scrapbook.com. and wanted to give it a try!

Clear Scraps to the rescue~

Hi guys! I have a scrapbook page that I created using strips of paper from my scrap bin and stencils by Clear Scraps The paper had some stains but I thought I could use it for cards or a craft project. Clear Scraps to the rescue~

April4

*  I took the 3 different papers, different manufactures and adhered them to cardstock.
*  Then using the 12 x 12 Chevron stencil the stains were covered up easily.

April5

* Then I thought I would add a little "pretty" to the already pretty Mirror Butterflies 

CSMRbutterflies-2

* Using the 6 X 6 Spiral Dots stencil the "pretty dots" were added to the Butterfly.

CSSMspiraldots6-2
* I love how you can recycle damaged goods by using cool products by Clear Scraps!
* StazOn ink was used to stencil on the paper and mirror embellishment.

On her way~ a scrapbook page with Quick Quotes!

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the new Gypsy Road Collection by Quick Quotes. I had fun with this collection and loved the results of the completed page.

I used border punches and then shaded them with Peach Tree PowderPuff Chalk Ink around the scalloped edges. I loved the look the shading gave the scalloped borders.  It really defined the scallop!!

I used Antique Linen PowderPuff Chalk Ink to lighten the area where I wanted to put the title of the page at. This is my granddaughter ~ Crafty Diva.  She's my kind of girl! 10 years old.
