Elegant Wall Art Gallery in Seconds

Today I'm going to show you how to create Elegant Wall Art Gallery in Seconds.....for just pennies...check this out....

Wall sunlight

No, I am not an artist! I cannot even draw stick figures well--even my handwriting is atrocious (right, Diane?)! But this wall art is simply exquisite and I created it in just seconds...the base art is a sheet of Designer Series Paper from that elegant set Fine Art Florals. There are multitudes of beautiful designs in that set for creating cards and memory albums...but this one leaped from the set and screamed---I'm Wall Art! And so, it is.

I added a couple of accent pieces...see the butterflies in brass foil paper....

Butterflies sun

I also stamped and added two flowers using the 2-step stamps from the Art Gallery stamp set (Blushing Bride and Poppy Parade ink) and adhered them to the flower field with dimensionals--this adds a bit of interest and depth to the entire layout...

 


Flowers sun

Of course, you can change the complete look of the art by changing the frame color--but I chose white to enhance the bright fresh look of the art...by changing the frame to black and changing the butterflies to black the entire feel is different.

So grab a sheet of this exquisite designer paper and a frame--see what your Art Gallery looks like!

155233

Touch of ink - flowers

This time instead of using the solid images to do our coloring for us, we're using Memento ink so that we can color the designs with the Stampin'Up! Blends alcohol markers. The ink flows on so smoothly with the Blends that it's truly a joy to color with them.

Sale-a-bration Touch of Ink - Hummingbird

Today we'll be creating with the Sale-a-bration Touch of Ink - Hummingbird! This beautiful 2-step stamp set is really quite easy to stamp with and....if you are not an avid coloring stamper, the solid images are a quick solution to add color to your outlined stamped images. 

155233

Touch of ink - hummingbird

The solid images roughly match the outlined ones and are not intended to be a precise match for coloring---so it's even easier to do quick stamping because there's no tedious matching of the two stamps. The effect is a more casual design rather than a formal one.

You can earn this beauty free..that's right, during Sale-a-bration you can earn this set when you purchase $100 in Stampin'Up! products...that is as long as supplies last. Since this set is quite coveted I would recommend obtaining it sooner rather than later.

Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #2

Today we're creating again with Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #2! I loved the beauty and ease of the card we created on Tuesday so I carried over the design for today's card.

Raspberry card

We used the  Holiday Rhinestones again for this card but this time we used he green (instead of blue on Tuesday's card) One of the benefits of the Holiday set of rhinestones is that there are a multitude of colors so you can always find a coordinating color.

With a slight switch in colors, this card can also be created with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and ink for the berry and have yet another great fun and easy card.

Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #1

Today we're creating with the Sale-a-bration Berry Blessings #1!

The Berry Blessing bundle has a lovely stamp set with a pack of coordinating Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper! And, yes, this bundle  also coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set & coordinating punch in the Spring mini (officially called the Jan-June Mini)!

Here's today's card:

Blueberry card

If you love to color you can use your Stampin'Write Markers or your Blends (alcholol markers)--you can even use your Blender pens & ink pad. But...if you are in a rush (who isn't these days) or if you simply don't like to color, there is the two step stamp that will color it in instantly for you. 

I love the blues in this paper so I chose to do our first card with the blueberry stamps and leaves...the set also contains 3 very verses that cover a multitude of occasions.

One of the really fun points of the designer paper is that one side is all about berries & the other side has gorgeous coordinating colors but in more geometric patterns. This means you can mix and match the designs to create some pretty wonderful projects like the card above.
