trisha too: an Easter bonnet?

Well, I had planned to make you an Easter bonnet piece
with some of those fabulous Milliner Misses stamps,
but a spring cold had me in its clutches!  ***atCHOO!***

So please allow a little look back, to a very Easter bonnet-ish 
looking tag that I posted last summer.  It uses (of course!)
a Milliner Miss, that milliner net background stamp from
the Just Sayin' plate, plus the sweet roses and French 
sentiment found in the Floriculture set.
Now tell me, doesn't this look like an Easter tag to you?
Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Vicki Robertson: Just Sayin' Canvas Mini Album

I am delighted and honored to be a new member of the Rogue Redhead Design Team.   When my stamps arrived,  I was truly inspired by the quality and design of each stamp.  I wanted my first project to be inspiring not only to you, but myself as well.

Mixed media projects have recently become an addiction of mine.  What better way to show the versatility of my Rogue Redhead Stamps than to combine them with a host of other mixed media crafting products. we go with my "Just Sayin" Canvas mini album featuring the following Rogue Redhead Stamps: Behind the Scenes, Milliner Misses and Just Sayin' .  The listed stamps are available for purchase in the Rogue Redhead Designs Store.  This mini album will be used to house some of my favorite quotes for future use on craft projects.

I created the cover of my mini album with two pieces of chipboard and  two pieces of self adhesive canvas. The chipboard dimensions are 5" x 5" and the canvas measures 5 1/2" x  5 1/2".   Cutting the canvas slightly larger allows for an overlap around the edges of the chipboard.

I stamped the canvas with the Behind the Scenes Handwriting Background Stamp.  Next, I used multiple distress inks to color the canvas.

Before adding any more texture to the canvas, I adhered it to the front and back chipboard pieces and added patterned paper to the inside of each cover.

 Using Versamark Ink, I stamped the Behind the Scenes Reverse Sequin Waste Stamp onto the front cover of the album, sprinkled it with clear ultra thick embossing powder and heated it. After the embossing powder cooled, I added more ink to grunge it up and misted the cover with two different spray mists to add some shimmer.

The pages in the mini album are made from craft paper layered with patterned paper.  I stamped the background on all of the pages with the Behind the Scenes Reverse Sequin Waste Stamp and the matted layer with the Behind the Scenes Handwriting Stamp.  Next, I used the flower from the Just Sayin' Set and stamped several flowers on each page in three different colors.  To add shimmer to the pages, I again misted with two different spray mists.  I used washi tape, buttons, twine, and tags to embellish each page differently.

A chipboard vintage telephone painted with acrylic, stamped with one of the Milliner Misses and misted with color was a perfect touch for my "Just Sayin" mini album theme.

I assembled the cover and pages and punched aligned holes through the entire thickness tying it together with hemp twine.  Using the Just Sayin' Stamp, I stamped and embossed the title tag.  I also stamped the different shapes from this set to embellish the cover.  A couple of buttons in the corner and my mini album is done!

Debi Ryan: ATC Misses

I have an ATC to share with you today. I've sponged the background then stamped with the Script stamp from Behind the Scenes. In black Archival ink I've then stamped the Misses. It's hard to see but I've also dry embossed in one corner a Paris Postmark. The sentiment "Good Friends Are Always in Fashion", finishes it off. I think this is a great sentiment, don't forget to join in the Rogue Redhead Rebel current Challenge- Sentimental Focus.

Our New Rogues

We are pleased to announce the addition of Krisha and Vicki to the Rogue Crew!

As usual, we will let our new artists introduce themselves through their own words and their art!

Meet Krisha

My name is LaCretia Ogle but I go by Krisha, a nickname given to me by the kids I babysat in high school. I live in the northern end of the southern part of California. about 100 miles north of Los Angeles. I am married, this year will mark 40 years together.  I have two grown sons, two beautiful daughter-in-laws, three granddaughters and a grandson due today!

I have been doing all sorts of crafting and painting since I can remember. I was an art major in high school and in the short time I was in college.  I have taken independent drawing classes and oil painting classes ever since I have been married.

I have been rubber stamping for almost 20 years, back before everybody had blogs and the yahoo groups were the only way to reach out to others with the same interests. I went to a Stampin' Up! party to buy and alphabet set for scrapbooking, the rest is history.

I have been published in Sommerset Studios and Stamping Arts and Crafts.  I have also been commissioned by friends and customers to create special cards for them.

I really haven't thought about having a style. I like to do everything from CAS to pile-it-on mixed media!  I also enjoy doing Zentangle or tangle-doddle and love to work in my art journal.  I scrapbook, probably have 4 going right now.  I enjoy oil painting, but haven't had the oils out in a long time. I have recently discovered mixed media canvases and have fallen in love with them. I dabble in just about anything and everything. I own every type of painting/coloring medium there is on the market. I am also very interested in photography and am looking to take some classes in that field.

Here's Krisha's introductory Rogue creation:

You can find more of Krisha's creations on her blog, Krisha's Keepsakes.

Meet Vicki

Hi, I'm Vicki Robertson. I love art in all forms and crafting has been a life-long hobby for me. Paper, scrapbooking, mixed media and altered art are a creative outlet for me.  This wonderful hobby has provided me the opportunity to make and meet many friends.  I enjoy sharing what I have made and preserving family memories for future generations.

I am currently the Creative Team Coordinator/Blog Boss for CropStop, Design Team Member for My Sketch World and a Staff member at Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.  It is with great delight that I am now a member of the Rogue Redhead Design Team.

Here's Vicki's introductory Rogue creation:

You can find more of Vicki's creations on her blog, He"Artful" Validation of Vicki.

We would like to welcome our newest Rogues!  You'll be seeing their art starting in April!

Colleen Oxford: Relish Holder

It's snowing again!!!
Yes, New England has woken to another white fluffy morning.

So I really wanted to create something with Warm Bright colors. 
One's that we will hopefully be seeing soon :)

I started out with a plastic drink mix container.
Rogue Redhead's Relish Reading and Behind the Scenes stamp plates.
Stampin' Up's Tango Tangerine, Pacific Point and Real Red inks.

I cut a piece of flexible white paper and stamped the bubble wrap background stamp from Behind the Scenes using the stamp off technique to give some depth. Then I used the 2 book stamps from Relish Reading and randomly stamped around. 

I then adhered the white paper around the container and glued some ribbon to the bottom.
On a separate piece of white paper I stamped the girl holding the book from Relish Reading, colored her in and stamped the sentiment on top. Finishing by cutting the image out, popping it up, adhering red flowers around the image and adding a few pearls.

Barbara Washington: Books

This month the Rebel Challenge is sentimental focus. I chose one of the sentiments from Relish Reading. The adorable image of the two children is also from that set. Since I wanted to focus on the image and the sentiment, I chose a very simple background. A band of color sets off the look of the card. I used Pan Pastels for the color and stamped the image in black for dramatic effect.
Why don't you join in the challenge before April 7, 2013 for a chance to win a $15.00 Voucher to the RRD store!

Helene Huber: Feeling Sentimental

Have you checked out the latest Rebel challenge?  Ink up a sentiment or quote and make it the focal point of your creation.  Here's mine:

I used the sentiment from the RRD003 Floriculture stamp plate.  The honeycomb background stamp is from the RRD010 Getting Grizzly stamp plate.  I thought they paired up nicely.

Flower is from Stampin' Up.  Seam binding, which I crinkled up with some water, is from my stash.  Papers: Canvas Home Basic horizontal note card; Stampin' Up Very Vanilla card stock.  Inks:  Coffee Archival for stamping; Ranger Tea Dye Distress  for edging.

I'm anxious to see what you come up with as your sentimental focus!

trisha too: a sentimental atc? maybe . . .

Well, okay, no, it's not sentimental in the traditional sense of the word,
but in keeping with the latest Rebel Challenge, the focus of this atc
is, in fact, on the sentiment:

The background papers are mono prints, but I added stamps from the
Behind the Scenes plate for added depth.  And the sentiment is from 
the Relish Reading plate--makes sense, right? 

(Wanna know a lil' secret?  I didn't leave the atc like this . . . if you want
to see the rest of the story, you can come take a peek HERE.)

Debi Ryan: Floriculture Blues

Here's a quick card I've made this afternoon, using some of the stamps from Floriculture. I've masked and then sponged the background with 2 shades of blue, then stamped using the stamps from Floriculture in the same shades.

And then some little details to finish.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Colleen Oxford: Nature Notes Thank You

I hope everyone is enjoying this Beautiful Tuesday.

After all the Holidays and Birthdays lately I'm in need of stocking up on my Thank You cards.  I took inspiration from a stack of ink pads that have been MIA. While cleaning yesterday I found them and thought what great colors.  I used the NEW bubble background from Behind the Scenes and the flower and sentiment from Nature Notes.

Color Inspiration:
Real Red
So Saffron
White and Black

Hope you have a chance to have a look around and find your inspiration :)

Barbara Washington: Two Amusements

I decided to create a tag for my post today. Actually, I had used a tag for picking up extra distress stain from my non-stick mat. I really liked how it had turned out, so I decided to use it for this piece. I stamped the tag with the bubblewrap stamp from the new Behind the Scenes stamp set. I added a harlequin die cut along the right side of the tag. I stamped the boy from Relish Reading and cut him out. His jacket and hat were paper-pieced. The sentiment is also from Relish Reading. The tag ribbon is made from tissue tape. (a Tim Holtz idea) It was a quick and easy tag to make, but I think it turned out great.

Simple Set Saturday: Pattern and Texture

I am always finding myself with too many scraps of designer paper and not enough Thank You cards.  My project today will solve both my problems.  You will not believe how quick these simple cards will go together.  Once I finished this set, I realized these would also make great hostess gifts! 

All you need to get going is some designer paper with a subtle pattern, a couple Cuttlebug folders and a simple image and sentiment.

First, I trimmed down my patterned paper to 5.0" x 3.75" and ran each piece through the Cuttlebug with a folder with a distinctive pattern.  I then used a coordinating Distress Ink and dragged the ink part over my dry embossed paper to highlight the pattern.

Next, I stamped the flower silhouette from Nature Notes using the same coordinating Distress ink.  On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the sentiment, also from Nature Notes, and creating an oval shape using my Creative Memories oval cutters.  I matted image, sentiment and embossed panel in black using a 1/8" border.

Hope you liked these simple notes!  Share your makes if you try it out!

Helene Huber: Shaped Card

Happy March First!

I love this trio of gals, Olive, Kitty and Belle, from the Milliner Misses stamp plate.  

Using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Curved Rectangles dies, I created a shaped card by positioning the die on the card so that the left fold would stay intact.  I then cut two more sizes for the nesting effect.  Sanding the edges of the middle one adds depth.  The smallest one also has the embossed edge. 

I used a sheer ribbon which allows for accent without detracting from the stamped image.

Additional products used:
Copic markers
Stampin' Up and DCWV papers
The Ribbon Boutique ivory organza
half pearls from stash 

Here's hoping you have a great weekend!  Helene aka 2amscrapper @ LOTSA SCRAP.
