Silhouette Art!

Happy Friday folks...I love Fridays!!  We have a busy home-improvement weekend that includes painting Alexa's room, putting up her shelves and finishing her new desk from Ikea.  Also visiting the flooring store to pick new carpet for upstairs bedrooms & basement rec-rm and bedroom and tile for lower foyer.  And I have to fit in a few projects as well LOL..so not much sitting for this gal.  I leave next Friday for a weekend away with my Mom & Alexa to see my Luke Bryan and Florida-Georgia-Line...whoot!  We have pit tix...that means SUZANNE WILL BE UP CLOSE & PERSONAL with my Lukey...sooooo excited!!  Then next Sunday we leave for SC and Alabama for college tours thru Wed for Alexa (SC Univ and Auburn Univ)...then finish up with 5 days in Hilton Head, SC.  We love it there...SC is my future home one day soon :)  So anywho, that leaves just a few days next week to get projects done and stuffs...not much time! So tomorrow starts a whirlwind of activity...can you hear my hubby sighing already???? heeheehee

I will have my FL pics and stories on my post on Sunday for you all ok?  New project too!  Have a great weekend everyone!!

I have new posts on the "Bitz of Me" Blog too if you wanna scoot-a-loo over & see!  More fun stuff to come after this weekend when I actually get some half-finished projects DONE LOL!

 

********************************

Silhouettes!!


Today is a NEW SCACD release..whoot!  I'm so excited to share my projects...as they will be on the walls of my new office soon!  Following on the fantastic Blank Canvas Collection, we are excited to present the SCACD Blank Canvas Collection #2 & Natures Direction Set. Building on the original release (recently featured in Craft Stamper Magazine), this new collection will take you on further creative adventures as you mix and match the stamps and use a variety of techniques. Perfect for beginners and seasoned mixed media enthusiasts alike, these stamps will grace cards and paper-crafting projects as beautifully as they will altered canvases and other mixed media projects. 

Check out the yummy 6x6 paper pads on sale HERE too! 

International friends can get the stamps/dies at Quixotic Paperie.



I LOVE Silhouette Art...so pretty and elegant and I knew I wanted some for my office but man its PRICEY to purchase.  Well I have all the tools to make my own so that's what I set out to do with these stamps!  Simple black frames I got at Michaels and they were on clearance too + coupon so they each cost $4 and the smaller one was $2...so $10 for frames.  The background papers are from an older 12x12 MME collection I had....FREE.  So for $10 I had art for my office...it doesn't get much better than that huh?

The two images above are from the "Blank Canvas Collection #2"...there are many different versions of stamps for all kinds of art in this set.  The dancer/leaper "Leap of Faith" comes in line art also so you could paper piece her, paint her, etc (the women stamps are sold in pairs). So many options with this set of images so make sure to check them all out! I embossed the images with Stewart Fine Detail Embossing Powder in black...I love the coverage of this powder.  I emboss with Versamark pads (I have it in the Dazzle color too)...I'm old school and it works good so why change right?  I embossed on shiny-coated white cardstock...I like the gleam of the paper with the images.


Can you tell how much I love these...squeal!! LOL!  And so easy to make as well!



This Inspire Stamp is FREE with the purchase of both the "Blank Canvas Set #2 AND Nature's Direction" Sets.  I love it, perfect for my office!  I embossed it as well but changed the background paper to a darker version so it would coordinate but stand out as well! (It would great colored too)

Now I am the last stop on the hop...but you can start at the beginning at Elaine's Blog Here to see everyone's fabulous projects!!
