Hello Karenliz here.  Welcome to our Creatastic Blog Hop where we are celebrating our partnership with Susan K. Weckesser.

As soon as I saw Susan’s stamp set called Grandma’s Needle Point, I knew exactly what stencil and stamps I wanted to use for a tiny canvas.

Supplies:
Susan K. Weckesser – Grandma’s Needlepoint stamp set
Susan K. Weckesser – Color Burst 12×12 Paper
TCW251s Mini Branches Template
4″x2″ Canvas Panel
Acrylic Paints
Modeling Paste
Ranger Archival Ink – Jet Black
Golden Gel Medium

I added acrylic paints to the canvas panel. When dry added the modeling paste through the Mini Branches Template and then painted the branches.

I stamped the two little birds from the stamp set on the Color Burst paper and cut them out. To add their nest I cut strips from the same paper and attached them to the canvas with gel medium. Using archival ink I stamped the quote at the bottom.

Too cute right? I love to work with tiny canvas and Susan’s stamps in this set are perfect for them.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Autumn Tag by Lynne Forsythe-

What an honor to be able to create with such fabulous products by
The Crafter’s Workshop and
Susan K Weckesser.

Fall is in the air here in the North Country….
the mountain sides are full of color!
Hence my inspiration for my tag.
Live to Create by Lynne ForsytheI began by laying The Crafter’s Workshop ~ Maple Leaf Fragment on my tag
and spritzing with TA ~ Safari Green Glimmer Mist.
Repeating the process several times.

Live to Create by Lynne ForsytheI randomly stamped with Susan K Weckesser’s ~ Autumn Grunge with
Archival Ink ~ Potting Soil.
Repeating that process using Susan K Weckesser’s ~ Washi stamps.

0002526_0-300x196

I then applied Embossing Paste through
The Crafter’s Workshop ~ Mini Ledger.

SBC_cf-tcw267_0

As my tag had a rather “earthy” feel.
I chose to stay with the theme and used
a branch from my Northern White Cedar
to embellish my Petaloo Burlap Flower.
(it’ll be interesting to watch the branch change color!)

Live to Create by Lynne Forsythe

I accented my twig with a few Petaloo ~ Forget Me Nots.

Live to Create by Lynne Forsythe

How WONDERFUL is the saying from Susan K Weckesser’s “Live in Color” tags??!?!

Perfect way to finish off my tag.
Hope you have enjoyed my Fall Inspired creation
featuring Susan K Weckesser’s products!

Fall tags/Sue Carroll

Hello & Happy October!!

I love Fall…cooler temperatures, vibrant earth tones, pumpkin spice lattes, warm soup and crusty bread…

Speaking of soup…I am a cook, and I enjoy making yummy one pot meals to share with friends and family…and this is definitely soup season!

We have a circle drive, and those who know me well, know that they can drive through for a hearty take home container of soup this time of year!!

To make a gift from your kitchen even more personal…add a handmade tag so the recipient knows it was especially made for them with love:)

…taking advantage of a Sunday afternoon (while my hubby is watching football) I like to create a “stock pile” of tags to have on hand to use for gifts, quick notes, and food tags.

Below is a sample of tags I created using a TCW Stencil designed by Susan K Weckesser as well as her way cool “washi tape” & Autumn Grunge stamps perfect for the fall.

I started this tag project by making some washi tape with plain masking tape!

I am LOVING Susan Weckesser’s fun stamps…they are SOOOO versatile!

Fall tags/Sue Carroll Fall tags/Sue Carroll Fall tags/Sue Carroll

Fall tags/Sue Carroll

I made several “sheets” of washi tape in a variety of colors to have on hand for several projects.

Using the Autumn Grunge stamp with embossing ink, I stamped several white tags.

Next, I took a Pan Pastel in brown, (using a “dime store” make-up sponge) and brushed the color over the stamped image.

I used the same process with the stencil., and outlined it with a fine tip                           Pitt multi-liner black pen.

To finish the tags, I added words cut out from a vintage book.

Hi everyone, what an exciting week we have for you! Have you been enjoying the blog hop going on around here? If you haven’t heard yet, The Crafter’s Workshop and Susan K. Weckesser have been hanging out together this week for a fun blog hop full of inspiration and prizes! I certainly hope you’ll join in the fun!

Here’s my project combining both TCW and SKW goodies:

Miae Rowe_TCW_Live Full of Color (1)

It’s a canvas I plan to put up in my craft room!

I started with papers from SKW called Bouquet and Live in Color and TCW 220 Rain in 12×12.

Miae Rowe_TCW_Live Full of Color (8)
I traced the smallest raindrops onto Bouquet (pink paper) and the larger raindrops onto Live in Color (green paper).
Miae Rowe_TCW_Live Full of Color (2)
Take TCW 481s, some mist and spray over the traced raindrops.
Paint the larger raindrops with metallic watercolors.
Paint the larger raindrops with metallic watercolors.
Miae Rowe_TCW_Live Full of Color (4)
Here’s what you should have.
Miae Rowe_TCW_Live Full of Color (5)
Now take SKW Live Love Create paper and TCW 377s Circle Regiment and TCW 278 Circle Explosion and trace circles that will fit inside the large raindrops.

I painted a dot of metallic blue watercolor paint to all the circles, cut them out and glued them to the large rain drop. These become my peacock feathers. I also sketched out and painted the peacock body on watercolor paper and cut it out. Now assemble the body and all the feathers onto your canvas. At the last minute I dabbed iridescent glitter to all the green feathers to really make them shine. My final touch was to alter an SKW Live in Color Tag and use as my inspiration quote. Here’s some close ups:

Today we have Rita Barakat and Beck Beattie.

First is Rita Barakat with an adorable card.

oct 2014 004100
Hey there creatives! Rita Barakat here to share a little combo of The Crafters Workshop and Susan K Weckesser stamps from Unity! I used the “what’s up Gnomey” stamps set and the TCWV479 Random Stars stencil  to make this fun little card on a chalkboard card. I used bistro markers and PITT metallic pens with the stamps.

oct 2014 003100
I used the random stars stencil with a little texture paste to add sweet stars!

oct 2014 002100

It was so fun coloring in these fun images! I did add a little grass and a border. Using the metallic pens in conjunction with the bistro pens offered a great effect! ( That little acrylic stand is from Deflecto.)  I hope you are enjoying all the projects this week! There is more to come tomorrow! Happy crafting!

Next up is Beck Beattie with a video too!

Hi Everyone, it is Beck BT here again with another Scrapbook page – yes they truly are my love.  I am so excited to be sharing a project teaming up with Susan K Weckesser this week as part of our joint blog hop!  Don’t forget there will be LOTS of inspiration, tutorials, giveaways and fun this week!

Susan’s art is always so inspiring, and I really wanted to capture some of that essence in my page.  What better than to be accented with her adorable painted sentiments stamp set.  The whole feel for the page was really inspired by Susan’s designs which I have been fortunate to work with in the past. I just knew the perfect stencil to team up my design idea with and that was The Crafter’s Workshop ‘Star Shower’ TCW170 stencil.  I also gave my new Gelli plate a whirl to create this fun technique of transferring the stenciled, printed pattern onto the background of my Scrapbook page. To better illustrate how I did it, I created a video of the process.

Here is link if needed

 http://youtu.be/P_SZMHHONzw

To finish off the page I used Susan Weckesser Sentiments Stamp set stamped into some Gesso or blue paint and then stamped onto the page.  I love how they accent the design. Here are some more pictures

I hope you enjoyed my share today Happy Crafting!! xxxBeck BT

Hello there! It’s Yvonne here to share my mixed media canvas using The Crafter’s Workshop TCW 481S and Susan K Weckesser’s stamp.
