This week’s Freshly Made Sketches #199 challenge is:

FMS Final 199-001

I decided to use SU! Watercolor Wings stamp set for this challenge. I stamped the larger butterfly in Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay inks and the smaller butterfly in Tangerine Tango and Tangelo Twist with Daffodil Delight accents and sequins from the Watercolor Wonder Kit (love that kit). The bottom of the card is accented with a strip of Cherry on Top DSP and washi tape from the Watercolor Wonder Kit (did I already mention, I LOVE THAT KIT).

In August, I am offering a Technique class featuring a hot glue mask/stencil. I found this technique on a YouTube channel with the Frugal Crafter and it looked like such a fun technique, I knew my stampers would love to learn how to do this in a class. Check out the YouTube website.

I found a small silicon mat I had purchased from Stampin’ Up! and forgot all about it until I cleaned out my tool bag. Lo and behold that was one less supply I needed to buy for the class. LOL  I hate to admit but this happens quite often to me; you know, you buy something just because, never use it, and one day you just happen upon it and become quite happy to have found it just in time for a project. Anyway, I broke out the glue gun with one glue stick left and heated it up. I really wanted to make a lot of hearts joined together (see the tutorial) but my glue gun didn’t want to cooperate. It wanted me to make something that would look good with globs of glue. How about a tree??? That worked well. So a tree making I did go.

Once I made my tree and let it cool for a few minutes. I made up the ink mist. I had two spritzer bottles and put 1/3 alcohol, 3 – 4 drops of ink, and filled with water (for lighter inks, you might want to put 5-6 drops of ink). I laid the hot glue tree on some watercolor paper and spritzed the yellow at the top and the orange half way down to the bottom of the card. On my next card, I will take something heavy and put on top of the paper so it doesn’t warp (I still can get the edges to lay flat on the mat).  Once the spritzed ink was dry, I sponged some Wild Wasabi on the branches and down at the bottom of the card for grass. I went back with a really, really old SU! stamp set Watercolor Minis and stamped leaves and grass with some flowers. Since the card had a modern/abstract feel to it, I stamped “You are a fabulous work of art” as the sentiment. Here is the card!

Hot Glue Card

This scrapbook page was a page I made for my friend as an example of a traditional scrapbook page using Project Life cards. I didn’t want traditional scrapbookers to feel limited by Project Life’s photo sheets, but rather the card sets could be used on a more traditional page.

Her son had gone to some type of swim park with his friend’s and she had captured the moment with pictures she wanted to place in a scrapbook. I didn’t have any 12×12 SU! new 2015-2017 in-color paper (Watermelon Wonder); so, I took a piece of Very Vanilla 12×12 and adhered the solid side of the new envelope paper to the Very Vanilla base. Hey, it worked. I used Project Life cards to add commentary areas and sentiments. I then wanted a 3D effect. I took baker’s twine and punched out banner shapes from the Project Life cards and adhered them to the twine (some with glue dots others with dimensionals. I used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, and Pool Party card stock as coordinating colors for the mats.
