CARD: Welcome Little One & Image Transfer Goo-f.

After getting my Fedex shipment together for this weekend at Art & Soul, I settled in to work on a project.  I've been working on a party favor for my friend who is hosting a baby shower this weekend.  It's one of those cute candy bar wrappers.  Of course, I cannot find a candy bar to test it on.  Is there a Hershey Bar in the house?  Nope!  LOL.  Hopefully I can post it soon.

But that project got me thinking that I should make a card to give to her too – and since the expected bundle is a boy… I went with the obligatory blue.

Thankfully a new sketch was posted on 2 Sketches 4 You (Kazan #25) to get me started.  Here is the result.



  • cardstock and epoxy sticker from Aurora line by Prima
  • star clipiola and velvet ribbon from Creative Impressions
  • star nestabilities and tags 5 dies by Spellbinders
  • paper distressor by Tim Holtz for Tonic
  • Chocolate and Grey Flannel ink by CTMH
  • Frost Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels
  • texture plates from Sizzix, exclusive set for Stampin' Up

Otherwise, I'm looking into attending a Michael deMeng workshop up at Absolutely Everything next month.  I hope to get a closer look at the project this weekend.

And why is it when you really want a technique to work – that it just WON'T???  I was patiently waiting for my image transfer to work this morning — twice.  Both times I kept losing vital body parts or the face.  That won't do, since it's my Dad (as a young boy), and it's for a Father's Day canvas.  *(I don't think he reads the blog – else I'm in trouble now…)*  Having parts of his picture mangled just doesn't suit the theme KWIM?

Anyone have a foolproof image transfer method to share?  I tried using Adirondack Paint Dabber paints, and also Matte Gel Medium as the 'goo' (a Claudine Hellmuth description, that I adore!) — both with a laser printed picture on text-weight paper.  The problem came during removal of the paper bits.  Suggestions?

I'm halfway remembering that Claudine will be at Art & Soul, so perhaps I can pickup some of that fantasmic looking multi-medium while I'm there.

So no canvas to show off yet.  Workin' on it…
