Masking with Rock 'n Roll

A few techniques rolled into this one! Masking and Rock 'n Roll! The thanks was masked with a piece of sticky post-it-note punched out with the Wide Oval Punch.Then the leaves were stamped over it. After stamping the mask is pulled off and ta-da complete! The leaf stamps were first inked with More Mustard but immediately rolled around on the Cherry Cobbler ink pad - this creates the Rock 'n Roll look - before stamping onto the Very Vanilla strip of card stock..

Supplies
Stamps: Autumn Splendor, Thank You Kindly
Ink: More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder

Manitoba Flood


Just had to make a page about the controlled breach of the Hoop and Holler dike along the Assiniboine River in Manitoba. Had we not left Manitoba just over 3 years ago we would have been dealing with this, sand bagging, worrying about our new home and a possible evacuation. So scary.

Because there were so many pictures online I decided to make up a layout using My Digital Studio. It took me about an hour because I took a little bit to decide what photos to use first. I need to go back and make more pages still. Very easy in MDS - I selected a prearranged photo layout and went from there.

Digital Supplies
Stamps: Bliss, Texture
Colours: Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz
Paper: Pear Pizzazz Text Designer Series Paper

Ribbon Rose

Satin Ribbon Roses are so cool, although I'm not too impressed with my very first rose. Next time I think I need to have a longer piece of ribbon as my rose looks kinda plain. To get the look of the satin rose I slightly melted the ribbon with the Heat Tool. Melting the ribbon took a lot longer than I thought it would.

I just had to dive into the Creative Crew Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers for today's card. The Colour Focus for May is all Neutrals with a splash of colour. First a piece of Very Vanilla card stock was run through the Big Shot and the Vintage Wallpaper folder then sponged with Crumb Cake to accent the raised images. To finish off the card I added a piece of Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon,  my first Ribbon Rose and lastly the sentiment.

Supplies
Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Ink: Crumb Cake
Paper: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon, Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Vintage Brad, Wide Oval Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Strip, Heat Tool, Sponge, Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder
