Happy Mardi Gras 2018!

Mardi Gras 2018 Masks

Happy Mardi Gras for 2018!  My friends in New Orleans assure me than although today is the end of the formal parades, balls and parties, the less formal events start this weekend.  Remember that NO weekends begin on Thursday and go through Sunday or Monday.  Don’t let them tell you otherwise!

I can’t believe I last mentioned Mardi Gras in 2014, when I did an article on Mardi Gras Color Craft.  This was an analysis of the Triadic Color Combination Purple, Green and Gold.  These colors continue to be the main Mardi Gras Combination, but all the other colors get in on the festivities, too.  You can see that from the photo of assorted masks.

This year, we can use Emerald Envy, the Hue from the Green Color Group, instead of Garden Green, the Tone from the Green Color Group, to add brightness and exuberance to the Mardi Gras Color Scheme.  The Color Combination remains Triadic because no Color Groups have changed.  Elegant Eggplant is still the Purple Color Group representative and Gold continues to stand in for the Orange Color Group.  These colors make an energetic Color Scheme for Mardi Gras 2018.

Let’s Look At Brusho® Crystal Colours

Brusho Crystal Colours at the Ready - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Let’s look at Brusho® Crystal Colours now that the Making a Mess with Watercolor Class is over.    I talked about them a little in my Make a Mess, Then Make a Splash post, but not really anything but mentions since.  The Brusho® Crystal Colours are fun, intensely colored crystals that help you create a mess while you’re designing a gorgeous background or coloring in an image.

The Crystals come in a box of 5 color containers.  The Colours are named Brilliant Red, Gamboge, Moss Green, Prussian Blue and Yellow.  You sprinkle these on wet paper, then brush over the Crystals to spread the color.  I used a push pin poke holes in the edge of the lid, then cover them to seal the colors inside.  I made a triangle of three holes that all fit under the base of the push pin.  A thumb tack would also work, but I prefer to protect my manicure with a push pin.

Watercolor Paper gives the best results for using the Brusho® Crystal Colours.  The paper absorbs the water, but keeps the space wet enough for the Crystals to stick.  Using very damp brushes such as Aqua Painters spreads the Crystal Colour well and erases the Crystal specks (for the most part).  Some Crystals may get stuck in the nooks and crannies of the Watercolor Paper and refuse to be washed out.  This will give you a speckled effect that you may like for certain projects.

I will be doing a Real Life Color Coach analysis of each color, with a swatch to illustrate it.  Check back in the next few days for the start of the series on the Brusho® Crystal Colours.

Sunshine Wishes Gallery – Project 3

Woof-Woof Valentine by Rebecca Boling

The Sunshine Wishes Gallery continues with a third project by fellow paper crafter and reader Guest Artist Rebecca Boling.  You may take a look at the previous Gallery projects here:

Sunshine Wishes Gallery – Project 1

Sunshine Wishes Gallery – Project 2

Project 3 is an adorable and whimsical card with a doggie on top of the hearts and the phrase, “Woof-Woof,” which can mean whatever you want it to mean.  With Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip supporting the Real Red hearts, the design works well for Valentine’s Day, birthday, anniversary, get well soon, thank you, or anything else!  The Monochromatic Color Scheme is suitable for male, female, adult or child recipients.

I like the garland of banners and pennants as an embellishment.  These have been punched so they can be threaded onto a length of twine.  You can tape the twine to the back, then decorate the ends on the front with bows of twine.  Glue Dots are great to attach these bows.  Either Glue Dots or Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals can be used to attach the red gingham ribbon bow to the garland.

Thank you again, Rebecca, for sharing this adorable and whimsical Woof-Woof Card!  And thank you for being my Guest Artist today.

Color Scheme for the Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland

Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

It’s time to analyze the Color Scheme for the Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland.  That’s what the Real Life Color Coach (me) does.  I discussed the colors I would use in my Inspiration from Disneland – Leaf Tile article, so now it’s time to go into why the scheme works.

My discussion started with the Neutrals, Whisper White and Very Vanilla.  These colors don’t affect the Color Scheme, they are supporting or base/foundation colors.  I suggested Whisper White to form the background and Very Vanilla as the basis for the leaves.

Tranquil Tide, the Shade from the Green-Blue Color Group, creates the wash and the shadows for the design elements.  Island Indigo is also from the Green-Blue Color Group and can substitute for Tranquil Tide, but is a lighter Tone.  It is Analogous to Garden Green, from the Green Color Group, and so works well together for accenting the Neutrals.

Powder Pink is a Tint of the Red-Orange Color Group and Calypso Coral is the Hue.  These are Complements to the Green-Blue Color Group and create a pleasing, harmonious Color Scheme with sufficient contrast to be interesting.

Cajun Craze is the Shade from the Orange-Red Color Group and fits the Complementary Color Scheme just fine when you recombine the Red-Orange and Orange-Red colors into the Red-Orange Tertiary Color Group.  You may remember that I separated the Tertiary Colors for convenience in creating my Color Charts.

The overall Color Scheme is Complementary Plus, with the Analogous Green & Green-Blue Color Group members complimenting the Red-Orange/Orange-Red Color Group members.  And that’s how we analyze the Color Scheme for the Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland.

Inspiration from Disneyland – Leaf Tile

Leaf Tile Inspiration from Disneyland - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Inspiration from DisneylandLeaf Tile I found – the 2nd idea from my trip this month.  (See Background Inspiration from Anywhere article.)  I’ve been working on a design for a “Winter Leaves” card to use the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set and the Leaflets Framelits™ Dies.  I found this tile and Voila! my design just fell into place.  I will be posting the completed project in a few days.

I will not be replicating this tile, but using the elements as inspiration for the card I’ll be making.  I won’t be using the same Color Scheme as the tile because I’ve had my own in mind for several weeks.

I plan to use the tile’s Color Scheme to inspire a Watercolor project with the Brusho® Crystal Colours.  We won’t be playing with this idea in my Make a Mess with Watercolor class on Saturday, but I may use it in a future class.  This depends upon how well it turns out, of course.

If I wanted to replicate the tile’s Color Scheme, I would start with a Whisper White background and wash it with Tranquil TideIsland Indigo would also work, but there is more Green in Tranquil Tide.  I would keep the wash to shadow under the leaves when they’re applied.

The wave border looks like Powder Pink accented with Calypso Coral.  To simulate, stamp a wave image in Powder Pink, then sponge parts of it with Calypso Coral.  Use the Tranquil Tide wash to add shadows to the image.

Very Vanilla should work well for the leaves.  Cut them out and sponge the edges and ends lightly with Calypso Coral and Cajun Craze for the Brown edges and Garden Green with Tranquil Tide for the Green edges.

Do you have a technique, such as replicating a design like the Inspiration from Disneyland – Leaf Tile, you’d like to know more about?  E-mail me at mary@3amstamper.com and I’ll write about it in an upcoming article, complete with sample.  If you’re having a problem and need help quickly, please feel free to contact my Help Desk at 3amstamperhelp@gmail.com and I’ll get back to you right away.

Background Inspiration from Anywhere

Background Inspiration for Crumb Cake Shaving Cream Technique - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

I saw a Background Inspiration for the Shaving Cream Technique in Disneyland… or was it Disney’s California Adventure?  Anyway, the photo shows part of a panel that is marbled and looks just like a two-color Shaving Cream Technique Background.

I haven’t had a chance to try it yet, but I’m thinking of squirting out a pile of shaving cream on a plastic plate, then tinting it with Crumb Cake or Peekaboo Peach Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill.  I recommend blending the color in gently so the fluff stays and will hold the marbling.  Then, sprinkle a few drops of Soft Suede Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill over the tinted shaving cream and marble lightly.

Finally, press a piece of white Card Stock into the cream and remove.  Wipe off the excess cream and let dry.  If the marbling is too dark, use another piece of card stock and repeat.  This will give you two or more backgrounds.  You can use Whisper White, Shimmery White or Glossy White Card Stocks to make your backgrounds.  I think the Thick Whisper White would be too absorbent and you might not like the effect.  I’ll have to try that, too.

Sunshine Wishes Gallery-Project 2

Love Card by Rebecca Boling - visit http://www.3amstamper.com

The second project in my new Sunshine Wishes Gallery by fellow paper crafter and reader Rebecca Boling, Guest Artist, is a Valentine that can also be used for an Anniversary Card.  This design shows you the flower Thinlit in use, along with the word “love”.

In the previous article, Sunshine Wishes Gallery – Project 1, I talked about the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits™ Dies.  This card uses the flower die-cut in two colors and one of the words.  I also discussed how you can attach the die-cut shapes, especially the swirly ones.

To make the flower on the stem in two colors, die-cut the image twice: once on red card stock and once on green.  The Big Shot™ Die-Cutting Machine and the Big Shot™ Magnetic Platform make the die-cutting easier.  Snip off the stems and attach the green one to the red flower.  The green flower can be used for leaves on another design and the red stem can become a perch for a bird or something.  Hide the join with a red bow.  Glue Dots will keep the bow secure as well as connect the flower to the stem and both to the card front.

The black hearts on a white background paper give a great “love” tone to the card.  The paper is layered on a white card base and looks very elegant.  The red embellishments add touches of fun.  This could also be used as a Friendship card, too.

Thank you again, Rebecca, for sharing this beautiful Love Card!  And thank you for being my Guest Artist today.

Greeting Card Gift Box

Greeting Card Gift Box - visit http://www.3amstamper.com

This Greeting Card Gift Box was designed for cards with envelopes about 1/4” larger than the usual envelopes for 5-1/2” x 4-1/4” handmade cards.  I discovered I needed one when the envelopes from the Color Me Happy Project Kit didn’t fit inside the Acetate Card BoxesI’ve faced envelope frustration before and conquered it as you can see in my articles, Long Note Card Box-Completed and Easy Long Note with Fall Flair.

The Oh, Hello Greeting Card Gift Box has the same 1” depth for the lid and the box bottom.  You can add 1/2” to the dimensions of the box bottom and get a 1-1/4” depth for the with 1” for the lid.  This will make it a bit easier to open the box.

Instead of giving you the exact dimensions for the box, I’m going to give you the steps to make a Greeting Card Gift Box for your own envelope size.

  1. Measure your envelope. Write down the dimensions, leaving room to add.
  2. Add 1-1/2” both ways for the box bottom.
  3. Add 1-3/16” to 1-3/8” both ways for the box top, depending upon the thickness of the box material.
  4. Score the box bottom at 1-1/4” on all sides. Create flaps by snipping from the outer edge to the score line of the longest sides.
  5. Score the box top at 1” on all sides. Create flaps by snipping from the outer edge to the score line of the shortest sides.
  6. Decorate your box top as you wish. I recommend keeping the embellishments flat so you can stack multiple boxes.
  7. Crease all the score lines and adhere the flaps to the box sides. Use strong adhesive such as Fast Fuse or Tear & Tape.

Tip: If you have to piece together your box material to get the size you want, you can adhere a piece of the box material between the join and the bottom edge to get the box to stand flat.  The box top doesn’t really need piecing, just decorate the lower side or cover the join.

My newsletter, 3am Thoughts, is filled with tutorials and tips with even more details than the Greeting Card Gift Box instructions.  You can receive a selection every week for FREE if you join my Mailing ListTo join, fill out the form at right.  You’ll collect 2 free tutorials (valued at $7.95 each) as soon as you sign up!

Sunshine Wishes Gallery-Project 1

Happy Valentine's Day Card by Rebecca Boling - visit http://www.3amstamper.com

I have a new Sunshine Wishes Gallery courtesy of one of my fellow paper crafters and readers, Rebecca Boling.  You may remember her Guest Artistry from the Beautiful You Gallery she shared with me last Spring.

This Gallery features the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits™ Dies from the Stampin’ Up!® 2017-2018 Annual CatalogThe Die Set includes swirly images, such as the hearts featured in this card, and script words.  The Dies coordinate with the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set, but they don’t match.  There are a lot of word stamps included, which is handy to create a number of occasions cards.

Rebecca’s first project is a Happy Valentine’s Day card.  She used a white card stock base and used scrap patterned paper to great effect!  That’s one of the great things about Thinlits, you can cut shapes from the tiniest of scraps… so if you’re a scrap-saver, you’re all set!

You can attach the swirly heart shapes a number of ways.  If you want them to lie flat, you can dot the back with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.  You can also cut them from a piece of Designer Series Paper that you’ve attached to a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet.  This gives the shapes an adhesive backing after you peel away the liner.  If you want a little lift, roll up Mini Glue Dots into burritos and attach them to the back.  The Stampin’ Dimensionals (both sizes) are too large for the swirly heart and are very awkward to cut to size.

To make the Happy Valentine’s Day banner, you can stamp a strip of paper and trim it to fit the sentiment.  A few snips on the ends will create the flag ends and you’re ready to attach it to a larger strip of patterned paper.  The banner is accented with an Enamel Shape in a coordinating color.  Other gel or epoxy shapes accent the card on a cream-colored label.

Thank you, Rebecca, for sharing this beautiful Valentine!  And thank you for being my Guest Artist today.
