Debbie | Mixed Media Tag

Hi Friends!  Debbie with you today sharing a mixed media tag.  This tag has lots of stenciling using Rebecca's medium sized Enchanted Vine Stencil and Flights of Fancy Stencil

Start with a large manila tag. Lay the  Flights of Fancy Stencil on the tag and begin adding color spray beginning with the lightest color first. Continue until your tag is covered with color.

When dry, using modeling paste and a palette knife, radomly spread a thin layer over the tag.

 Allow the paste to dry or dry with a heat gun.

Add Versa Mark over the dried modeling paste and then apply Copper embossing powder and heat emboss.

Add some Random stamping to the tag.

To finish the tag add your main stamped images and title, embellish with flowers.

Susie | Watercolor Art Panel

Susie here today to share a project I created by combining one of Rebecca Baer's collage stencils with Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders.

I used the medium sized Cascade stencil from Rebecca Baer Designs for today's project:

I started by laying the stencil on top of a 6"x6" piece of Mixed Media Art Board.

I chose Turquoise, Chartreuse and Lime Green Color Burst and sprinkled the tiniest amount of concentrated powder into the openings of the stencil.

Next came my favorite part!  As I spritzed it with water I could see the colors activate and start to blend!  I removed the stencil and let it dry thoroughly.

Using waterproof, permanent black ink, I stamped a female figure directly onto the art board.

I re-stamped the image onto white cardstock and then heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  I trimmed out just the corset area of the figure and adhered it on top of the original stamped image.

I used the Turquoise Color Bursts to color these flowers and then cut them apart to create a skirt for my figure.

I used a heat gun to make sure the background was completely dry before I stamped and heat embossed the sentiments.  I added horizontal lines with washi tape and 3mm black rhinestones.

To finish things up I adhered an engraved metal token and a piece of turquoise rhinestone over the heart of the stamped image and stamped some tiny hearts on her sleeve.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie

Shilpa | Stenciling with Pan Pastels

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here

I've created today's canvas with Rebecca Baer Flights of Fancy stencil and Pan Pastel

Here is the making procedure.....

I kept the stencil on the surface and applied Versamark ink all over surface.

I removed stencil and started applying different colours from Pan Pastel randomly on the surface. Colour adhered to the area where  I applied Versamark ink. ... revealing the beautiful stencil design.

Pan Pastel Silver colour added depth to the design.

I chose Sizzix Dragonfly die cut image as my focal point. I've also done texture stamping with black archival ink. For finishing touch, I adhered sequins and diecut word "discover"!!

Do try this technique with different Rebecca Baer stencils!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, see you in couple of weeks!!

Karen | Stenciling on Glass

Happy Wednesday!

I've been playing with my Snow Flurries Stencil from Rebecca Baer.

I used 5.75x5.75 sized stencil.  It does come in 3 sizes.

 It was hard to get a good picture!

I did two layers.  One using a frosted silver and blue enamel glass paint by DecoArt.

 As you can see below-I had some trouble with this side. But it didn't matter once I did the 2nd stenciling layer. It was covered right up!

 After the first layer was dry, I did a 2nd layer with a stenciling brush.

 Here's the finished product!  Can be used as a candy dish, or put a lighted candle inside for some sparkling light!

To finish off the top edge, I dabbed frosted silver all the way around.

Irit | Snowflake Card Duo

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my  post made for Rebecca Baer  with two cards as my inspiration for you.

On my first card I used  Rebecca Baer snowflakes background and add this " your own kind of wonderful " sentiment.

For me, the one who lives in a sunny hot country with close to zero snow, snowflakes are a kind of a wonder. We maybe have a bit of snow once in 4 years and Winter Wonderland for us is a kind of a fairy tale. I made a sentiment with Honey Bee stamp set and made with special card for a special, wonderful anyone. And also I made a small tutorial for you to follow if you wish:

1. Use texture paste over the Rebecca Baer small sized Snow Flurries stencil. This size of  stencil is just perfect for the cards.  Let the paste dry.

2. Add a mix of Tattered Angels mists over the dry  stencilled image. Wait between the layers unless you want to get a " mad" over your card.

3. Die cut the dry background with stitched rectangle die and glue it over the white die cut base.
Stamp Honey Bee Stamps sentiment made with Beautiful Life stamp set. I used black pigmented ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Then I hand cut the sentiment and glued it with 3d foam glue.
The last, but not the least: mist the whole card (including the sentiment ) with gold mist and add a few gold sequins.

The second card was made to show you how the very same Rebecca Baer stencil can look so different when you use another colors of mists and make it more pastel.
So I made the background in the same way with the very same Snow Flurries small sized stencil and the very same texture paste. Then I just misted with two Tattered Angels mists and the background was all done. Stamped image and a sentiment (Two Paper Divas) were colored, hand cut and glued over the card.

Martha | Fanciful Ornaments

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a great product that I discovered a few months ago and I love it. This product is from the Rebecca Baer Inc. store - it is called Masonite and it comes in different designs that you can manipulate to create your own design. In today's project I used the Masonite Fanciful Ornament Kit. These innovative ornaments use a variety of components to create twenty-eight different variations from simple to sublime. Take a look to my first ornament.

Creating this was very simple - here you will see how to make this:


Choose your Kit: Check out this PDF to make your selections. The drop-down menu below lists each kit as shown on the PDF and identified by I, II, III, and so on through XXVIII. The same PDF also serves as your guide for assembly. -Or- create your own variations using our ornament components and embellishment multipacks.


Start the process of painting the surfaces. I decided to use Ann Butler Iridescent in different colors to create this. I took the solid heart first and used three colors: Iridescent Berry, Sheer Russel and Tangelo.


Paint the detailed heart too. To create texture on it you can use GooseBumps from Imagine Crafts before applying the Iridescent paint. For this piece I used Iridescent Sheer Russel, Sheer Gold and Tangelo


Now that the paint on the solid heart is dry, you can create a special texture on it with one stencil. For this I used the Paisley Swirl Petite Background ST-830 from Rebecca Baer Inc. I just placed the stencil over the heart and applied a layer of GooseBumps. 


Take the small piece from the kit and cover it in GooseBumps too. Let it dry and paint with Iridescent Sheer Gold and Sheer Bronze paint.


Now that all the pieces that I selected from the Masonite Fanciful Ornament Kit are finished, it is time to assemble it. Masonite components should be assembled using RB Gel, which bonds with acrylic paint so layers can be assembled either before, during, or after painting. Embellishments can be mounted in the same manner. Alternatively, for added dimension, the embellishments can be mounted using foam adhesive squares


Finalize your decoration with your personal touches.
Here is another version of the same pieces. Masonite parts can be connected by other means such as jump rings, ribbon, wire or twine where they are not mounted directly on top of one another and secured with gel.


Hope you liked my ornament today and got inspired!!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
