Karen | Autumn Scarecrow Card

Warning!! Picture heavy! Well-just 6 of them!! LOL

I totally LOVE how this card turned out and wanted to share each step with you.


 I started with 140lb Strathmore watercolor paper and embossed the sentiment and scarecrow with black embossing powder.  I then colored it in with watercolors.

 Did detailing of coloring on the scarecrow.

 I applied DecoArt Texture paste using Rebecca Baer's Moroccan Tile and Vine stencil ST-604b (size 5.75x5.75) and allowed to completely dry.

 To finish, I used faber castell gelatos in red first-blending in with my finger in an oval on the outside of the figure and then brown on top.

 Here's a close up of the stencil pattern!! Gorgeous!!

 I hope you'll go over to Rebecca Baer's website and do some shopping for your own stencils.  They add character and pizazz to every design!!

Irit | Resin Bookmarks

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my October tutorial made with Rebecca Baer's delicious stencils.
Also I already made a couple of bookmarks before (I am a book worm, so this is my must to craft item), but this time the technique is different and I made them over simple kitchen  foil and covered with a layer of resin to make it like forever.
So here are the steps for this project:
1.  Make three strip of a chipboard in bookmark size and cover them around with a kitchen foil. Use Heavy gel medium (I used Golden, but any heavy gel medium is good) with Rebecca Baer Mosaic Medium size stencil over the all three pieces together. Let the gel medium dry and it takes TIME! 

This is how it looks after you take the stencil off- gel medium is still white. But after it's dry it becomes pretty much clear.

3. Use a few of your favorite Staz On inks over the texture. Just rub them over and over and you can also mix some of the primary colors to make more colors. Those inks are perfect for  non paper surface.

5. Add a thin layer of Gaze On medium over the colored pieces.
This medium  was made to make Staz On ink permanent no matter what. Let it dry.

6. There are no photos of resin filling step as I had to work without moving the covered pieces to the light to take photos. But it's just " mix resin according to instructions and the brand and cover the colored bookmarks from the front. Do not touch them for 24 hours. Now make another portion of resin mix and cover the back side and let them dry for another 24 hours."
Use your hole punch (heavy duty one) to make holes on the top  of the bookmarks and tie a piece of lace or ribbon on the top. 
You can't see it , but  those bookmarks look and feel like a piece of glass and you can still see all stenciled texture.

Martha | Stenciling with a Brayer

Hello everyone, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using the brayer technique with one of my favorites stencils, Arabesque Background - ST 301.S. This technique is one of the simplest and with it, you can obtain amazing looks and results. Take a look at my card:


 Create this is a very simple process:
  1. Cut the base of the card. I used Chocolate Chip card stock, the size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2".
  2. Cut a second layer using Very Vanilla card stock. Originally I cut this 5-1/2"x4-1/4" but then I resized to 4"x5-1/4"
  3. Secure the stencil Arabesque Background over the card stock using Rebecca Baer Masking Tape.
  4. Ink your brayer with Kaleidacolor Ink Tomato Vine and spray it with Ink Potion No. 9
  5. Roll the brayer over the stencil.
  6. Repeat the process until you feel that the color or free areas are covered.
  7. Remove the stencil and wash with warm water.
  8. Let the card stock dry.
  9. Cut the Delicate Flower Wreath die three or more times using different colors of coordinating card stock and paste it over the stenciled piece in different positions using glue dots.
  10. Stamp a message and paste over the stenciled layer.
  11. Paste the stenciled decorated layer over the card base.

I hope my project inspiring you and come back soon! Thanks so much for stopping by.

Debbie | Snowflake Tag

Hi Friends! Debbie with you today sharing a  fun tag created with Rebecca Baer's Medium Snow Flurry Stencil.

Winter is right around the corner and so are the holidays, hard to believe this year flew by so fast already!  In honor of Winter I created this fun tag made with a different and fun technique.

I started of with a large manila tag and stamped it with a musical background stamp using StazOn Ink.

Place your stencil over the top of the tag and rub glue onto the stencil and tag.

Add Perfect Pearls to the tag, and spread with a brush.

Shake off the excess and spritz with water.

Heat emboss and watch the adhesive pop up with texture!

Ink with Memento Ink and Embellish your tag! 

Thanks for stopping by Rebecca's blog today!
