Floral With Sympathy Card

Good Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today.  The card I am sharing with you uses Victorine Originals' Floral and Sayings stamp set.  I have used this set SO many times (see them here) and I recommend this stamp set to be in everyone's collection!
I stamped the floral stamp with VersaMark and embossed it with white powder.  For the sentiment, I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used the Kaisercraft Mandala die to frame the stamped area.  It was a perfect fit for the card!  All patterned papers are from DCWV's Peri & Peach stack.  To embellish, I added some sequins in the bottom right corner.  Adhesives used include ATG, Lineco Adhesive, and foam tape.
Remember, we have this Mood Board Challenge going on right now! Here is the inspiration photo for it. You can use the pictures, theme, and/or colors to enter.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Vintage Bicycling

Hi Sharon here from Mollie Moo's Crafty Place taking over the blog today, I have a little vintage transport for you:

I started by inking a white piece of card to make it look older. Using the same color ink I used the text stamp and stamped this 4 times covering my card. I then used Kraft card and again with same ink I stamped the Penny Farthing and fussy cut it out. 
My card was assembled using dark brown card to mat my base. I then added my inked card.
 I used foam squares to adhere my penny farthing raising it from the card:

 I added some coordinating nuvo drops.Finally I die cut some words from the dark brown card - I thought they were appropriate because wow! would you ride a bike with a seat like that!!!

A little magic that is Unicorn SPiT

Have you heard of the awesome product called Unicorn SPiT? If you haven't, you're missing out and must get some today!!! It is a gel glaze and stain product that works on so many surfaces! And it even smells good!

For this project, I used the Unicorn SPiT and a piece of wood. I started by sanding down the rough edges of my wood and then doing a little finger painting. Are you sold already?

The Unicorn SPiT is super concentrated so a little goes a long way. I applied my SPiT in circles starting from the center of the board. I then wet the board down with a spray bottle of water. Then I put a piece of saran wrap over the top. I sprayed the saran wrap to help my hands slide over it better, then pushed the paint from the center outward.

Once I was happy with the spreading of the SPiT, I removed the saran wrap. I did a little adjusting using more water, more SPiT and my hands! Yes, you get dirty with this product!

I was sort of going for the galaxy look with my board, so I grabbed the Victorine Originals Large Medallion stamp and got it wet with water. Then I lightly and carefully stamped it a few places on my board, wetting it with water as needed. Since the Unicorn SPiT is a water-based product, it reacts with the water. This leaves a cool watercolor-effect image you can see in the background.

After I was happy with my design, I let it dry and then sealed it. You want to use an oil-based sealer for SPiT projects. And, the polyurethane really makes the SPiT shine! Adding the gloss finish makes the paint look so much cooler! I put five coats of poly on this board.

To finish off my project, I used a Chalk Couture transfer. (Want to learn more and you're local to SumMore Fun's Creation Station? Check out the class schedule today.) Since the board is sealed with the poly, I can erase and change out my sentiment whenever I'd like!
