Welcome to My Royal Blog Tour Castle!

Welcome to my castle!!  I am honored to the Queen of this castle! The tour runs from November 5th through November 8th, after which all links forward and back will be removed. I always try to bring you something ‘over the top’ for the tour… and I hope you enjoy today’s samples featuring the simple yet elegant “Plant Hope” Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!  Plant Hope is one of my favorites, along with a very long list of others Smile 
Isn’t this fun?  I always enjoy the Royal Blog Tour Events… so many talented artists, great ideas, and fabulously creative bloggers to visit!  I’ve been stamping away preparing a variety of projects, and something for everyone!  Today’s projects will range from Clean and Simple, to Multi-Layered, and even a special Brayer card for you!  So, get cozy in your coach and enjoy the excitingly creative ride!
First up… a little brayer technique sunset card I made for my DH’s Birthday… he loved it!!  And, I love my brayer!  It’s such a fun and easy way to add color to a card or scene.  Of course, I had a fabulous brayer teacher… Yes, I’m a fan of the fabulous MZ (aka the brayer Queen)… But today I get to be a Queen… so hope you enjoy my cards and my castle!

Next… A Vintage themed card featuring lace, ribbon, fabulous antique brads, and mini library clips… I live in Florida.. so you have to see a couple palm trees! 
RBT_Vintage_SharonField

Still playing around with this wonderful stamp set… This time with vellum and a banner greeting.  I love the woodgrain stamp behind the vellum, don’t you?  The edges of the Crumb Cake Cardstock were distressed with the cutter kit.  The Designer series paper on the lower half of the card was embossed using the vintage wallpaper textured embossing folder and then some of the color was removed with a sanding block… pretty cool, huh?  I love the mini library clips, and they were a perfect rustic touch to this very masculine and woodsy card!

Here’s a simplified or or “Clean and Simple” version of the same card…
RBTCAS_SharonField
And… how about an Asian theme?  I love the vellum shoji screen… not crazy about my foreground bonsai though!
RBTGeisha_SharonField

Here’s another sample using Medium Weight Window Sheet and of course the ever so lovely Plant Hope Stamp set!
RBT_window1After inking my brayer with Marina Mist Classic Ink, I added color to the very vanilla cardstock from the upper right corner twice… the tree images were then stamped, and Old Olive “grass” was sponged onto the forest floor.  Clipping the corners gave the card a little more interest and depth… all in all it is a very simple yet elegant card to create.  Look very closely, do you see striations in the sky (vertical lines or puddles?) In person, that’s really a very special and interesting watermark effect created by placing tombow multi glue directly on the window sheet to attach over the stamped image… almost like peering through a rainy window.

Everytime I come across an Oriental/Asian card I feel that I have been given a gift. I love the use of the 'shoji screen' cut out with the juxtaposition of the Oriental figure behind it in silhouette. I would like to take it one step further and add oriental paper behind the figure. Great idea and use of elements.

Sharon,

You've out done yourself again. Those trees look like they are about to jump out and get you, they look so real.

Super Duper Job------ Well Done!!!

Wow - beautiful effects with the brayer. It looks quite artistic! I love the 'snow' effects on the tree branches from the sanding.

Thanks for offering candy!

Your projects are just lovely! Great use of the stamp set. I particularly loved the CAS and stepped up versions of one of the cards.

All your cards are gorgeous Sharon!! And yes, I finally have internet again!! Love the 2nd card the best with all the BLUE.. so pretty!! Congrats on a very creative post!

Joyce Spear said...

WOW! As usual, I'm blown away by your talent! Each one of these projects is wonderful -- but the Asian one is my absolute favorite! I think the bonsai tree works well the way you have it. I may need to pull out my lattice die and see if I can do something similar now!
