A sailor is an artist

Hey everybody, a very Happy Saturday to you – and it’s the last day of July! Hope you’ve had a good week! I’ve been busy in my studio and that makes me a happy camper! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a masculine nautical-themed card featuring our Boat & Lighthouse Brads, which are new in the store this month, and paired them with our Anchor Brads along with our Wide Sky Washi Tape and Water Washi Tape! I use these two washi tape patterns together a lot because they create the coolest water/beach scenes ever!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layer from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock which I covered with Wide Sky Washi Tape and Water Washi Tape. I fashioned a cliff from CutCardStock 80# Sandcastle cardstock and then stamped some birds and shoreline greenery. I stamped a large sentiment in blue ink on white cardstock, trimmed the strip and adhered it across the top of the sky portion of the panel. I added Boat & Lighthouse Brads and an Anchor Brad,, and adhered the panel to the card base. The finishing touch was the addition of two Blue Enamel Dots on the sentiment strip.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, embellished it with a strip of Red Skinny Washi Tape and a strip of CutCardStock 80# Wild Blueberry cardstock, stamped the sentiment in blue ink, and layered the panel on the blueberry cardstock.

And one more peek… loving how this turned out! These new brads (paired with the anchor brads and washi tape) make awesome nautical masculine cards!

dragonflies canvas

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week and have something really fun planned this weekend! I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a pretty mixed media canvas featuring the new Dragonfly Brads in the store which I paired with Purple Enamel Dots and White Pearl Bling. OMGosh, these dragonflies are SO pretty! I love dragonflies (as much as butterflies) and these really spoke to me!

This took about a week to make… understanding the mechanics of mixed media, you need to let each layer dry thoroughly before applying the next, plus I was also working on projects for other teams. I covered an 8×8 stretched canvas with white gesso. Using a spatula and two dot stencils, I applied Ranger opaque matte texture paste over random areas of the canvas. I also applied Tim Holtz distress grit paste with a spatula and a doily stencil in random areas to cover the rest of the canvas, and then added another thin layer of white gesso. I spritzed a variety of glimmer mists and color washes randomly over the canvas, lightly hit the entire canvas with water in a Tim Holtz distress sprayer and let it all run together. The fun part is you never know what you’re going to get, lol! Some areas are darker/lighter than others and it’s totally random!

I stamped randomly over the canvas with writing and texture stamps using purple archival ink. I smeared glue in a few places with my fingers and sprinkled on glitter glass but unfortunately you can’t see it in any of the photos but the sparkle is real! I found the dragonflies meaning online and typed it in a purple font on my laptop, printed it on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and cut it with a hexagon die. I layered it on a slightly larger purple hexagon die cut and adhered it to the canvas. I added a variety of paper flowers from my stash (some colored with sprays and glimmer mist), along with a purple seam binding bow and a purple crafting cord bow, and a little wooden gear that I sprayed with green glimmer mist. I then added Dragonfly Brads, Purple Enamel Dots and White Pearl Bling to complete the canvas.

Here are a few shots going around the canvas showing the colors and textures.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! These dragonfly brads are gorgeous and really add to a project!

Relax… unwind

Hi everyone! Another Saturday has rolled around and we are that much closer to Christmas! Yaaaaay, my favorite time of year! We literally have just a couple months of hot weather out here in Colorado (that’s why we moved here) so we’re looking forward to some cooler temps coming! We have very little humidity so the hot and cold temps are much easier to tolerate. I’m happy to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a beach card featuring some of the new Flip Flop Brads that hit the store a few days ago… they are so cool! And of course, I had to pair them with a Sun Brad and a Seagull Brad along with Wide Sky Washi Tape and the Water Washi Tape to complete the beach scene!

Beach scenes are so much fun to create with washi tape and brads, and of course torn kraft cardstock for the sand, and makes for a super simple no-fuss design. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a panel cut from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock which I covered with Wide Sky Washi Tape and Water Washi Tape and rounded all four corners. I added torn strips of CutCardStock 80# Sandcastle cardstock for the sand along with a Sun Brad and a Seagull Brad. Using the Dare 2B Artzy Flip Flops Stamp Set, I stamped the Adirondack chair in Teal Zeal ink on CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock and while it was still wet, I sprinkled some Ranger Clear embossing powder over it and hit it with the heat tool. Remember I mentioned a while back the clear embossing powder in my stash that I apparently dumped some white embossing powder into because it now embosses with white specks in it?! Well, this is it… and I cannot bring myself to throw it away because it looks so freaking cool! I cut the Adirondack chair with the coordinating Dare 2B Artzy Flip Flop & Adirondack Chair Die and added it to my scene. I added the Flip Flop Brads and stamped the sentiment from the Dare 2B Artzy Flip Flops Stamp Set in Jet Black StazOn ink to complete the front of the card.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel and embellishing strip from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock, and a wider embellishing strip from CutCardStock 80# Sandcastle cardstock. I adhered the strips, rounded all four corners and stamped another sentiment from the Dare 2B Artzy Flip Flops Stamp Set in Teal Zeal ink, then layered the panel on the lagoon cardstock.

And one more look… so smitten with this card! The sky and water washi tape along with this assortment of brads makes the best beach cards!

I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a super cute new home card featuring our Fish Stamp Set and coordinating Fish Brads along with some Blue Enamel Dots!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a dark gray marble layer which I adhered to the card base. Using the My Favorite Things Fishbowl Die-namics, I cut the fishbowl and all the elements from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Aquamarine cardstock, CutCardStock Basis 80# Aqua cardstock, CutCardStock Brown Bag 70# Kraft Paper, CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Gumdrop Green cardstock, CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Jellybean Green cardstock and assembled it. I added the Fish Brads and adhered the fishbowl to the card front. Using the Fish Stamp Set, I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added several Blue Enamel Dots to complete the card front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with horizontal strips of the gray marble cardstock, CutCardStock Basis 80# Aqua cardstock and CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Aquamarine cardstock, stamped the sentiment in turquoise and black ink, and layered the panel on the Basis Aqua cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! The coordinating stamps and brads are SO much fun to play with!

Greetings from the Herd

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun tri-fold good luck/congratulations card featuring our Animal Stamp Set along with our Cow & Goat Brads, Pig & Sheep Brads, Horse/Pony Brads and Wide Sky Washi Tape!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel which I covered with Wide Sky Washi Tape and a green cardstock pasture. I added die cut grass and a hand-cut fence to keep the herd in, lol! ;) I added the Cow & Goat Brads, Pig & Sheep Brads, and Horse/Pony Brads to complete the front of the card.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone 65# Jellybean Green cardstock, and embellished it with a section of die cut grass, a green cardstock pasture and a cow brad. I stamped the sentiment in dark green ink and layered the panel on the jellybean green cardstock.

I cut a second white cardstock panel along with a folded panel from the jellybean cardstock (to fashion the third fold), stamped another sentiment in dark green ink and adhered the panel on the inside. This was a fun one!

Hey Foxy

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun birthday card featuring some of our very cool critter and mushroom brads along with with washi tape and pearl bling!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock as well as a layering panel from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I also cut embellishing strips from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock and CutCardStock Granny Smith cardstock which I adhered diagonally to the front panel along with a couple strips of our Copper Skinny Washi Tape, and then adhered the panel to the card base.

Using the Prickley Pear Stamps Magical Enchanted Day stamp set, I stamped the sentiment in dark green ink in the upper right corner of the front panel, and then stamped the wreath on a Solar White cardstock scrap, colored it with alcohol markers, and cut it with the coordinating Prickley Pear Stamps Fox & Wreath die. I cut several more plain wreath die cuts from CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock which I adhered on top of each other for dimension and then adhered the wreath to the front panel. I added some Clear Star shimmer to the wreath for some interest. I then added two Fox Brads on the wreath and two Lawn Mushroom Brads just below the wreath. The finishing touch was the addition of three white pearls.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock and CutCardStock Granny Smith cardstock as well as a strip of Copper Skinny Washi Tape, then stamped the sentiment in the dark green ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock.

And one more look… so smitten with these fox and mushroom brads! They really emphasized the magical nature of this adorable wreath!

how the SHELL are you? note card

Howdy, friends! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m delighted to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a super fun ‘just because’ note card featuring Shell Brads, Sea Shore Brads and Fish Brads which were just the ticket to pair with this adorable Brutus Monroe stamp set!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, and rounded the bottom right corner. I stamped the image in the bottom right corner, colored it with alcohol markers, and added a stamped sentiment and a few more bubbles drawn with a micron pen. I brushed on a super light layer of Ranger tumbled glass distress ink for just a smidgeon of color, and added the Shell Brads, Sea Shore Brads and Fish Brads. I adhered the panel on a piece of blue craft foam and then to the card base. The finishing touch, after adhering the inside layers, was adding Nuvo Ivory Seashell Crystal Drops to the pearl in the shell.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and layered it on CutCardStock Basis Medium Blue cardstock. Since this is a note card, I left plenty of room to write a custom message.

And one more peek… really loving how this turned out! Super easy CAS design that would be so fun to mass produce to create a set to give as a gift! Might have to think about that for a minute! ;)

An apple a day tag

Hi everyone! A very Happy Saturday to you – I hope you’ve had a great week! They sure are going by fast these days… Christmas will be here before we know it, lol! Okay, I see your eyes rolling! ;) Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a get well tag featuring some awesome brads with a matching stamp set and my favorite enamel dots!

Using the CUTplorations Stitched Tags Nesting Dies, I die cut two stitched tags from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and one from CutCardStock Basis 80# Red cardstock. I created a faux tablecloth by stenciling Ranger fired brick distress ink onto an ARTplorations Checkers Stencil with a blending brush and cut it into strips. I adhered the strips to red cardstock strips and then to one of the white cardstock tags. Using the Apple Clear Stamp Set, I stamped the basket in brown ink on CutCardStock Basis 80# Light Brown cardstock, fussy cut it, and adhered it to the lower stenciled strip, and then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in brown ink. I put four Apple Brads in the basket and one outside the basket along with an apple core. I adhered the two white cardstock tags to the red one, and then threaded three ribbons through the hole at the top of the tag and tied them with bamboo crafting cord. The finishing touch was the addition of three White Enamel Dots across the bottom.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! Such adorable brads and stamps!

I covered a strip of Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock with Fox & Flowers Washi Tape and adhered it to the left side of the card base. I cut stitched rectangles from Papertrey Ink Autumn Rose cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock along with a stitched oval from CutCardStock Royal Sundance Linen 80# Burgundy cardstock, and layered them together. I stamped the sentiment in white StazOn ink, added two Feline Brads and a Pink Enamel Heart, and adhered the piece to the card front. The finishing touch was adding some White Pearl Bling.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of burgundy and rose cardstock, stamped the sentiment in dark brown ink and layered the panel on the burgundy cardstock.

I stamped the sentiment in teal ink in the lower left corner and added some Green Enamel Dots to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of patterned paper and strips of Skinny Gold Washi Tape, stamped the sentiment in teal ink, and adhered the panel to the inside of the card base.
