JULY FRAMED ART INSERT

July’s Framed Art insert turned out to be so much fun!  It’s a celebration of the 4th of July, Ice Cream Day, Lollipop Day, Don’t Step-On-A-Bee Day, Tour de France, and just summer!  The 4th of July frame used the Black Magic technique – so much fun – it actually looks like fireworks!  I had never used this technique, so it was a fun technique to try using our fabulous watercolor pencils.  I used another one of our wonderful digital images called Sweets for the Sweet and turned it into a 3-D image by punching out the circle pinwheel with a punch and popping it up on a dimensional.  Using My Digital Studio, I sized one of the “sticks” to fit a 2 x 2 inch square and then used one of the pinwheels to become a lollipop and sized the pinwheel to fit a 1 inch circle.  I then printed them out along with just the circle image which we then punched out with our 1 inch circle punch, added some Dazzling Diamonds, and then popped it up with a dimensional to create a 3-D look.  I then used our very small hand-held 1/16 punch and punched two small holes on either side of the “stick” and threaded up some silver thread and knotted it and tied it in a bow so it looked like it was a ribbon actually around the stick.   The canopy square turned out cute-cute and looks like a real canopy!  I hope you enjoy looking at July’s insert!

MAY FRAMED ART CLASS

Hi Everyone!  Well, just finished up the May Framed Art insert and there’s so much celebration going on!  First – Mother’s day is in May, along with Memorial Day – we can’t forget those who have served and given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, and this insert is in celebration to ALL of us wonderful women who “do it all – backwards and in high heels” even!  LOL!  Also, one square is for all of us to remember to get your mammograms!  Ok – here is May’s insert:

This one is the one all my stamper’s made:

Here is my own personal family insert – notice how I highlighted my mom – the “Queen Mum”!  She’s TOO CUTE!  Also, this month we celebrate our granddaughter Addison’s 8th birthday – Happy Birthday Addison!  I also, for the first time in an insert, used a digital download (Fashionable #129883 for $7.95 – includes many other images and sayings too).  What was VERY COOL was that after I had downloaded the image, resized it to fit, I then used a Versamark marker, went over the image, and then heat embossed it using Irridescent Ice which darkened the image and gave it a beautiful shiny and glittery look – then topped it off with bling!

For the Stars and Stripes square, I used our red and silver glitter paper but needed blue, so I made my own glitter paper by taking some Marina Mist and patted it into my Versamark pad, sprinkled Heat and Stick powder over it, heat set, then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over it, tapped it off, and then heat set again and voila!  Blue glitter paper – very cool!  I created the hat using the top of a water bottle – LOL!  Here is my personal insert:
