Technique Blog Hop: Even Easier



Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! This month we are highlighting the “Even Easier” Technique as shown on page 91 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book! This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit our challenge blog at http://technicallyterrific.blogspot.com where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes. You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way. Let’s get started! 

If you are coming from Cherri's Blog, you are on the right track!  

I used the stamp from the Lucy Workshop On The Go. This is a stamp set that coordinates with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. Super easy to create accents. Find the correct image on the cricut and set the size to the same size listed on the carrier sheet. After cutting the image then stamp on it. This stamp set is a base and shade so I stamped the shade, the outline, and the center color. Super fast! 






To see the completed projects check out the images and instructions below. Click on any image to zoom in.

Supply List: Lucy WOTG, Grey Wool Ink, Blush Ink, Creme Brulee Ink, Lucy Glitter Rub-Ons, Bitty Pearls, and piercing tool.


Thanks for stopping by! Please continue onto Judy Faye's Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique! Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation. Happy hopping! 

Additional Instructions: To use the rub ons place your paper under the rub on. You may need to cut it out first. Then press hard with the popsicle stick. Rub over the image until it has stuck to your paper. You can slowly peel the rub on carrier sheet away to see if the whole image has transferred. If not then rub again, peel to peak until the entire image has transferred over.


I then added the bitty pearls over the flowers and other images to complete the look. A great way to do this is to use the piercing tool to transfer the pearls onto your project.



Cut the journaling strips and distress them to break up the look.


For the title I used the Cricut cartridge and simply distressed the letters before gluing them on.

  4. I adore!!! your layout. It would KILL me to use the two sheet of patterned paper on one layout, so I'm going to modify by using stamps instead. Thanks for the inspiration.
