Flowering Canvas

If you are looking for the start of our blog hop, go HERE.  The hop ends on 4/29/15.

Flowers,  flowers, flowers, I so love thee.  Hi it's Ann from the Design Team here at Linnie Blooms and also from the blog: Annmakes.  Spring has finally arrived and I look forward to gardening.  In the mean time I am making some cards with flowers as my inspiration.

To make this card I coloured the Linnie Blooms Canvas flower with some water colour paints in a "Poppy Red".  The canvas takes the paint very well and retained the shimmering of the metallic paint. The stem of the flower was made by sewing the Green Shabby trim (Linnie Blooms) in the zig zag stitch on the sewing machine straight onto the paper, before adhering to the next layers and then to the card.

The centre of the flower was made  by hand sewing on a button with some embroidery floss.

The sun and clouds were made from card stock and some steel dies. I also used some  dimensional glue dots to give the sun dimension.

The sentiment was stamped on and coloured.

Products used:
Canvas Flower from Linnie Blooms
Shabby Trim in Green from Linnie Blooms
Cardstocks in Blue Glitter, and Brick Fat Plaid from The Robin's Nest
Shimmering Water Colour in "Poppy Red" from Colourarte
Stamp , VS4911 series 7 from Studio G
Ink from Ranger Archival in Jet Black
Dies "Hello Sunshine" from Sizzix
Button from Dollar Tree
Embroidery floss in Black from DMC

Sweet Spring Banner by Dawn

Hi All....Dawn here with another project using Linnie Blooms awesome products.
This is my Sweet Spring Banner...simple and fun to make.  I hope you like it. 

 I used 6 Linnie Blooms pennants, 4 small flowers and 2 butterflies. I painted them with Gelatos...I love the soft colors I get with them.
 I stamped the word Spring using pigment ink and then outlined the letters with a PITT marker to make them pop.
 I wrinkled the flowers and made sure the edges were shabby...I like that look. Then I doodled around the edges with Diamond Stickles to give it some sparkle and I added buttons to the centers.  I dotted the pennants with the Diamond Stickles.
 I also outlined and dotted the butterflies with the Diamond Stickles..I tied the centers with dyed ribbons.
 I glued all the pieces onto a ribbon leaving about 2 inches between them. Then I tore pieces of a coordinating fabric and tied in between the pennants.
 Happy Spring everyone!

Be sure to check out the Linnie Blooms website for all these products and much more and connect with us on the Linnie Blooms Facebook page for lots of cool ideas. 

Thanks! Dawn Mattson :)

"Magic happens" LB Card

Hi !!

Here is Noe with a new project from Linnie Blooms… It´s time for a Card!!

(Hola!! Aquí Noe con un nuevo proyecto para Linnie Blooms… hoy toca tarjeta).

I love Linnie Blooms products because we  may use them whatever project we want: cards, Layouts, mini albums, home décor… even to make our own accessories like bracelets or earrings… and whatever you may think about!!

(Me encantan los productos de Linnie Blooms porque podemos usarlos en todos los proyectos que queremos: tarjetas, LO, mini álbum, home decor… incluso para hacernos nuestros propios accesorios como pulseras o pendientes!! Y todo aquello que se nos ocurra!!)

Here  we go!! This is my Project… I hope you like it!!
(Vamos allá!! Este es mi proyecto… espero que os guste!)

To make it I used this Linnie Blooms Products:

Other products used:

- Cardstock.
- Dimensional paste, inks, gelattos.
- Glossy Accents
- Lace
- Feathers

Step by step:

-          In the first place, let´s go create the background of our card… For this we dyed dimensional paste with our ink, in my case, using gelatos and dylussions sprays.
(En primer lugar, vamos a crear el fondo de nuestra tarjeta… para ello teñiremos nuestra pasta dimensional con tintas, en mi caso, usando gelatos y dylussions spray).

-          Place your stencil over cardstock  and tape down and spread dimensional paste over stencil. Remove it and let it dry.
(Colocaremos nuestro stencil sobre una trozo de cartulina y le aplicaremos cubriendo nuestra pasta dimensional. Retiramos y dejamos secar).

-          To make de flower we used a piece of lace… using a needle, passing the thread through one of the edges, from one end to another and then we pull the ends to form flower. We will use gesso and some ink to dyed it  and will stick on it our small canvas petal flower (painted ussing gelatos).  Above all, sitck some embellishment like button, bead or paper lollipop.
(Para hacer la flor, usaremos un trozo de encaje y usando una aguja pasaremos el hilo por un de los bordes de un extremo a otro y luego tiraremos de los extremos para formar la flor. Usaremos gesso y tintas para teñirla y colocaremos sobre ella nuestra flor de canvas, teñida con gelatos. Encima de todo colocaremos algún embellecedor como un botón, una perla, o un acordeón de papel).

-          We also dyed canvas small pennants  using gelatos and place them in an upper corner forming a banner.
(Usando gelatos teñiremos también los banderines de canvas y los colocaremos en una esquina superior formando una guirnalda).

-          Place sentiment in the center card and finally check glossy in some details of the background relief.
(Colocaremos el sentimiento en el centro de la tarjeta y finalmente echaremos glossy en algunos detalles del relieve de nuestro fondo.).

Work done!! I hope you enjoy so much make this card!!

(Trabajo hecho! Espero que disfrutes mucho haciendo esta tarjeta).

Painted & Glittered Canvas Feather Earrings

When I received my Linnie Blooms products in the mail and saw the Canvas Feathers, I just KNEW that I wanted to make a pair of Feather Earrings with them.

So, here they are - everything old is new again - trendy graphic Feather Earrings!

Here's What You Need:

Americana Paints by DecoArt - Purple Cow, Petal Pink, Fuchsia and Lavender
Paint Brus #2 Round; Palette; Water Basin; Paper Towels; Hole Punch 1/8"; Jump Rings (2); Earring Wires (2) and Needle Nose Pliers (2); Stickels glitter glue by Ranger in Purple and Star Dust.

Here's How I Made It:

1.) Draw in sections on each Canvas Feather with Tombow Dual Brush Pen.

2.) Paint sections of Canvas Feather using Americana Paints, let dry.  Base coat back of both Canvas Feathers with Purple Cow, let dry.  Apply small amounts of Stickles glitter glue  over dry paint and swipe off excess with finger, so just a bit of sparkle remains.

3.) Punch hole at top of each Canvas Feather

4.) Open Jump rings with two pairs of pliers.  Thread Canvas Feathers through jump rings, then thread on earring wires.  Close jump rings.

5.) Create your own color combinations - the possibilities are endless!  Wear with your favorite outfit OR give as a gift to your favorite teen or tween!

Wishes for a Special Day

Hello, I am Ann from the Design Team here at Linnie Blooms and today I have this sweet Birthday card intended for a Special Lady.
It started out as a plain white card, then with some lovely stamps and stencils from the Linnie Blooms Collection along with Stampendous products and some colours from my kids art supplies, I made this:

First off I started with a blank card.  I traced inside the  "Angel" Stencil with some wooden colouring pencils.

Followed by stamping with clear embossing ink and the "Stitched Doodles" stamp from Linnie Blooms and covering with clear holographic embossing powder which was heat embossed.

Once cool I placed the stencil back over the card making sure to align the stencilled and embossed part, and then covered with a beautiful blue ink.  I let that dry.

I placed the mask of "Angel" over the coloured image and weighed it down with some spray bottle caps.  I sprayed some blues and greens from my kids old spray writer markers.  I let that dry.

I used a Stampendous sentiment stamp with some black ink and stamped the Birthday wishes sentiment.

I added drawn in details with pens and glued on some sequins.

Products used:

Linnie Blooms:  "Stitched Doodles" stamp
Linnie Blooms:  "Angel" Stencils/Mask
Stampendous:  "Birthday Wish"Clear Stamps
Ranger:  "Holographic" Embossing Powder
Ranger:  "Peacock Feathers" Distress Ink
Ranger:  "Jet Black" Archival Ink
Stampin' Up!: "VersaMark" Watermark Stamp Pad
Sakura:  Micron pens 05, #21, #36, and #117
MegaBrands:  "RoseArt- Blast Effects" Dual Action Spray Writers
Crayola: "Pink" colouring pencil
Laurentien: "Cream" Colouring pencil
Michaels:  "Recollections" Card
Multi-Crafts (Dollar Tree): sequins
Tombow: "Mono" adhesive

I hope I have inspired you to look at your supplies and how by using Linnie Blooms products you too can create your own little works of art.
