Bartles

Hello! The Imagine Artist in Residence is sharing projects with dogs this month. So I decided to do a scrapbook page featuring my dog Bartles.

Isn't he adorable???
Supplies:
Imagine:
Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa
Sheer Shimmer in Sparkle and Frost
Fireworks! in Pear Tart
Sponge Dauber

Other:
Stampendous: Crusade Stencil
Xyron: Creative Station and Tape Runner
Quik Kutz: Diesel Alpha Dies
May Arts: Twill
Heidi Swapp: Heart Stamp
Prism: Cardstock

Directions:

1. Start by cropping your photos. Choose your background paper by pulling out a color from the photos. I went with an olive green to match Bartles' color. Then choose 2 coordinating additional cardstocks. I went with 2 shades of brown. Tear 1 sheet to a width of about 5." Tear the second color to the width of about 3 1/2."

2. Die cut the name of your furry friend, or a cute sentiment. Then, spritz the letters with Frost Shimmer Spritz. Let the letters dry.

3. Tape down a background stencil starting in the corner. Only tape a piece across the top so that you can lift it like it's hinged to see if you like how the ink has been applied. Make sure that the stencil is one that lines up easily with itself so that you can continue the pattern across the page. Using a sponge dauber, apply your ink. I used Rich Cocoa Memento.

This is how I tape down the stencil. I can easily check to the way the pattern is coming along. I didn't want to go for a solid pattern. I like it broken up. Continue across the entire sheet.

4. Spray the background with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle and let dry. *None of the pieces have been glued down yet.

5. Using twill ribbon, use a paint brush to apply Pear Tart Fireworks! I loved the paw prints on this ribbon. Stamp a heart on the right side of the page. Then, using the straw from the Frost spritzer, apply some Sheer Shimmer to the heart.

6. Glue down the accent cardstock and photos using a Xyron tape runner. Then, using the Creative Station, apply adhesive to the letters and the twill ribbon. Apply all of your pieces and you're done!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
