post pics in the thread ..so we can all enjoy your wonderful art..trade as you go or at the end if you wish....just have fun....

just for a bit of fun...on Friday we will have a challenge..see how many different ATC's you can make using one stamp..you don't have to do this if you do not wish to..but for those of us who want a little challenge just see how many you can make between 5pm and midnight using one stamp..they can be similar but not exact copies..


so come along everyone and have some fun..:D

I got 7 hours before start time, but I already know what stamp I'll be using. Since this is another weekend I'm sure I'll have pop-in guests and maybe I'll make them watch me stamp.

I have about 7 hrs to watch others posting.:cry: My daughter & her guy Sean are coming over for dinner at 7 p.m. She is recently back from 2.5 mths living/working in Milano, Italy. But hopefully I'll get a couple ATCs done and posted between 5 & 7, before they show up, then again after they leave.......... of course. :wub:

I participated in the chunky-a-thon a few weeks ago (my first a-thon). Does this work the same way? We PM folks about trades we are interested in?

Was also going to ask if we were restricted to one stamp and then reread the first post and realized that it was a special challenge for today-duh!

sniisk
02-20-2009, 02:58 PM
I have now made four cards. I don't have scanner now so I'll upload the pictures tomorrow.

4 hours to go here in Kansas City. I just played in the Feb CAT for a few hours and am addicted. Not a big stamper although I have a ton of them...but will give it a try! :cool:

Thanks GoldenWolf for mentioning the one stamp challenge, I had forgotten and was about to dig through the stamp box and fret over what to do...now I can get my old favorite out and just play with it now! Can't wait to see everyone's work.

Glad you like my little angel- I just received the stamp and am hoping to do a whole series of him with absurd "angelic" sayings. We'll see how motivated I am tomorrow. May have to drive to Philly for the afternoon- so I may pass on the rest- we'll see.

Ok--so, I have a question....

I am looking over these beautiful cards...and am wondering how you all get such sharp, clear lines. Also, when you talk about coloring the cards--what do you color them with? And, do you just stamp a black outline image, then color it?

I know...so many questions....but, I am trying to glean all your expertise I can! LOL

Thanks!

It depends on the ink you use..I usually use Archival Ink - jet black or Stazon black when I stamp in black

colouring I use either Twinkling h2o's, watercolour crayons or pencils...
sometimes I colour the card itself and just sramp an image onto it
just depends where my muse takes me..I also love using distress inks...when they stamp they don't have crisp lines..but I like that look for somethings..:D

Thanks!

If you use Ranger Jet Black Archival or Staz on (like Char said) and let it dry, you can then color it without the ink running. You can color with pencils, some of use use Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol, regular water color pencils, paints, oil pastels, etc. I often use a combination of Prisma color pencils and oil pastels...they blend nicely together.

Some people I know emboss most of their stuff and then color with markers.

Well I've only got 3 done been busy making greeting cards. I've had to scan the cards because its gone dark here and the camera battery is being charged up.

21558 sat #1 the background card has scanned lighter than it really is - its the same shade as the card below.

21559 sat #2 the eyelets are purple rather than blue.

21560 sat #3 the image is a dark green with a gold sheen to it.

PICTURES MOVED

It's weird but I have cooked, baked, cleaned our house and even worked almost two hours (I know, it's holiday) today and still made quite many ATCs. OK, it's almost 9 pm. here, but still. The reason is that my husband hasn't been at home. He is coming back after an hour or two and it means that I can't have tomorrow as effective day as a had today. But there is still time to make something today :).

Hey, sniisk, how do you get such nice, crisp scans of your cards with all of those dimensional elements? Whenever I scan anything with dimension, the image comes out warped and blurry. Any tips you can give?

ALL - Sorry, my goof. I came by last night with some cards I made, but I went to the original thread - the one checking on dates. I didn't find this one until now. Oops! Newbie here - lol. I have some things to do this afternoon, but I will be able to participate tonight.

That's interesting!... did she ironed the wrong side and wiped the wax off? I won't take the credit of spreading the wax as that is an encaustic technique.

Theresagram
02-21-2009, 06:06 PM
She spread crayon on her mini iron, spread it on the paper, then wiped off the wax. Then she had a bunch of cards that she'd stamped on, but she was only showing the melting stuff as she was trying to sell her irons and wax.

Hello all! Never got time to make more cards...felt under the weather today and then helped Mr. Tellulah work around the house. I'm just getting around the answering PM's and might have to finish in the morning! So if you've asked me to trade and I haven't responded...I will...just so tired. This was fun, can't wait for the next "a-thon".

Gorgeous cards everyone. I am impressed and inspired!!

I've scanned the ACTs I made today, but I keep getting errors when I try to upload to the main gallery. I'll figure it out (eventually - lol), but if anyone can shoot me a link on how to do this, I'd appreciate it. I used the search tool here but got a zillion threads that didn't seem to be related. Sorry for my stumbling around here. Having fun being creative with the group this weekend, though. :)

I got 5 done! 4 Tip Top Dolls (in various moods!) and one King of Hearts, cause I LOVE That stamp! They are in my gallery, I'll try to transfer them here.

ETA: the 2 with 'brown' at the top, they are TALLER than regular ATCs, the brown is just the background I scanned them on, so their hats stick off the tops of the cards 1/2"-3/4"

Thanks! I love 'limiting' myself to certain media, it always encourages new ideas and such. The backgrounds for these are acrylic stamped papers.

Hey--I got ANOTHER question! Just call me Queen O' Questions! LOL

I made a bunch of the melted crayon backgrounds--and they were beautiful! Vibrant colors.
Well....I have been trying to stamp an image on them, and it keeps slipping on the waxy surface (yes, I rubbed the wax off the card after melting it onto the card) so, the images keep getting all smeared and ruining the backgrounds.

I am going to run out of crayons having to keep making more backgrounds--but, I won't have anything to show for it!

HELP! LOL

Yes I find the same thing...you just have to put the stamp firmly down..press and lift..I find standing while doing it works best.... I have screwed up too many... and I have added pretty paper to some to cover up stuff ups..:D

Patti M
02-22-2009, 03:25 AM
That is the reason I stopped doing the wax backgrounds- I found it too frustrating! A friendrecommended I iron the cards with paper over them to remove the residual wax and that was better- but still a hassle. I prefer DTP with bright stamp pads now- easier for sure!

Tamrantula
02-22-2009, 03:30 AM
Yes--I had none before today, and had never tried them. So, this afternoon I went and bought a black and purple stazon. But, I am having that trouble with smearing them. I am sure it is my technique...just need practice, maybe. I am going to try that idea about standing up, maybe that will give a more even pressure to the stamp? We shall see!

I would never come after you....A-Rod was here (Mariners) before he went east...and he made a lot of people mad with the things he would say! I don't dislike him, and I challenge anyone to say they would turn down $250 million, if it was offered! LOL But, he did have a way of putting his foot in his mouth while he was here...of course, he was very young. This whole steroid thing, tho, is a horse of a different color!

phinnyar, sorry I didn't asnwer to your question. I don't scan my cards. I take the picture with my digital camera :).Thanks! You know what... I think I may have figured out a trick for scanning dimensional cards. I leave the top up and use my hands to press the card down while it is being scanned and so far they've turned out much better. Not blurry as before. So I'm glad you didn't answer right away b/c I think I may have solved my problem of blurry scans. Very cool!


Gorgeous cards from last night, all. Well done!
