Did you know June 1 is Donut Day? Hey, any day is a good day to celebrate with a donut, but here at CSI, we’re celebrating with a delightful Case File inspired by California designer Lianna Hee.

Feel free to interpret the Case File in any way that inspires you, or for our traditional clues, scroll down to the bottom of this post.32083881_753173058404418_4069384240540680192_o

How Jowilna solved the Case File: Evidence: solid white background, scallops, hearts, dots, circles, texture paste. Testimony: Juggling life; journaling in a circle; inspiration words for my title

I used my Fireworks sprays from Imagine mixed into texture paste and stenciled through a dot stencil to achieve the coloured dots.
This is part of solving the case and also using some of my favorite products and techniques.
Will you play along this month?

POP Paint transformations in 5 minutes.

posted in: Chiswick, Techniques | 0

I love how you can practically transform and change the look of anything with POP Paint.
Even better when it takes something pretty and turn it into something amazing.
I had this little gifted bunny in all white, but just thought he would look a lot classier and funky in a bit of a black chalk board effect.
Because lets face it everything looks better in black chalk board.Painted bunny_main

For this card I used the School Days Stamp Set. I used the sentiment stamped acorss the background in Black VersaFine Clair repeatedly with only
1 sentiment stamped in a different colour to make it stand out.
The circle element was stamped on a Rose coloured circle, and my star inked in VersaFine Clair as well.
A bright pink strip coloured with the VersaFine Clair runs across the top section of the card.

A few diamante and ink splats finished off this quick and easy card.

For my card I used a combination of VersaFine Clair ink to create a bright and beautiful background.
On top of my background I stamped the fun pattern from the Totally Stamp Set in Black VersaFine Clair.
Layered on top is the simple sentiment finished off with the paint swash detail.

Precious_hop_JN_Main
Such an amazing and versatile stamp set filled with loads of stamps to create a ton of sentiments.
I love basic and versatile stamp sets like these that can be used in a myriad of ways – and these sets are of an amazing quality.

Stenciled Celebration Cards.

POPcards_detail5
I absolutely love creating paper projects using my POP paints. This range of paints is truly so versatile and with the new bright and vibrant colours you can’t go wrong.
Today I created some vibrant celebration cards that can be used for birthdays and other special occasions.
POPcards_main
step 1 – Stamp your sentiments from the Chiswick stamp set onto white cardstock using permanent black ink like StazOn or VersaFine. Trim the sentiments to the size you need.
POPcards_step1
step 2 – On your craft sheet add a small amount of texture paste and POP paint in Burst.
POPcards_step2
step 3 – Mix the paint and texture paste together to give you a nice thick consistency of coloured paste.
POPcards_step3
step 4 – Create a coloured background. I used a variety of paints and inks to create a colourful mixed media background.
Stencil a pattern on top of the coloured background using the orange texture paste mixture.
POPcards_step4
step 5 – Leave the paste to dry completely. Adhere the stenciled background piece to a folded card.
Stamp flowers onto white cardstock and use some of your watered down Burst paint to paint the flowers.
Adhere the flowers and sentiment to the card and finish off with sewing and a few diamante.
POPcards_detail1
And a second version using some of my Haze paint combined with watercolour paint to create a purple flower.
POPcards_detail3
POPcards_2
And in a few minutes I created a couple of different cards using the same supplies – multitasking and creating a range of the same cards all at the same time really saves time and
you can build up quite a nice stash of cards ready to go at any moment.
