Polkadots and Pine's Paint!

Hi everyone, hope you're having a great summer so far. The girls and I went into town early today to do some shopping. We picked up some sidewalk chalk...3D at that after I heard my friends Val and Pine talking about it. I also strolled down the magazine aisle which I MUST do every time I hit the stores. We then hit an antique mall that I've never been to. I found just what I was looking for...an old wire milk basket. I'll show you what I'm going to with that once I get some photos taken. The girls wore me out so DH has them and is fishing right now so I have some quiet time.

So here's today's post. A while back my good friend Pine (Heather Nichols) did some projects using craft paints. Most of Pine's wonderful creations include Kraft cardstock and white ink....and lots of paint. So I took on one her challenges to use paint on a project and I'm just now getting around to posting them here. Please visit Pine's blog HERE to see her wonderful creations and scroll down to the May 8th post to learn all about using paint on your stamps.

I made a fun little set of notecards using pink craft paints (cheap acrylic kind found at any craft store)and the Papertrey Ink set called Polka Dot Basics. You'll notice that I use that set a lot....gotta love the polka dots!! Notice that I also tried stamping on some of Nichole's glassine bags...works great, just allow time for the paint to dry.For my envelopes, I used Stampin' Up! long Kraft envies. I covered the flaps with Papertrey Ink patterned paper and stamped the giant polka dots on both sides of the envelope with the pink paint. For the notecard, I used Spellbinder's new long rectangle Nestabilities, aren't these a fun size? These are *no fold* cards, you just write on the front of them.
To repeat the polka dot design, I also stamp some smaller polka dots on my notecards, using the pink paint again. I made a horizontal band of patterned paper for the top and then added a final circle accent stamped with the cute little two step strawberry from the Papertrey Ink set called Green Thumb, one of my favorites.

Well, I'm off to enjoy the evening. We rented Bucket List, Funny Farm and Son In Law to watch this week. I'm going to get the popcorn and movies ready and put on my jammies.....it's funny that in the summer time all I wear is shorts and a tshirt.....then I get ready for bed and I just put on more shorts and a tshirt! I am SO stylish! I'm also going to fix me an Arnold Palmer. I believe my friends just mix lemonade and iced tea....I'm trying to cut out the Diet Coke so I'm switching to these for a change. I'll let you know how it turns out. Have a great evening everyone!

Mmmm, yummy projects, Mish! And I practically have Arnold Palmer's on IV around here. It's all I drink anymore since I gave up all cokes, diet or regular years ago. Use the Crystal Lite lemonade and no calories too!

Karen said...

Great project. I must admit that I haven't tried painting with my stamps yet. I want to know what you think of The Bucket List. I have been wanting to see it, just haven't gone to rent it. I hear it is very good. Enjoy movie night. Thanks for sharing.

Love the note cards. Are the nesties the large or small set? Haven't tried paint but have plenty of it to use. Please give us a review of Bucket List. It's one that I'm interested in renting. Enjoy your movies. :)

Lovely to see some different type of projects. Wow, I dream of getting me some Nestabilities. They make such a different to a card!! Been trying to find out where I can buy some here in South Africa, but so far no luck! Enjoy the movies

I'm addicted to your site and visit every day - your sooo talented. I never heard of an Arnold Palmer - is this half lemondade and half tea (any kind)?

Patsy said...

Great project. I have not used paint yet, but I have some I am going to try. I love seeing your inspirations.

Sherrie said...

I love the note cards (as I do all of your projects!!). Thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas!

Dang it!! I just orderd my first Nestabilities. The circles and squares....now I need the long rectangles!!! These are so cute!

Nessie said...

Super-cute cards - as usual! And I love Polka Dots as well!

Shari said...

I love this set! I really like the pink with the kraft paper too!

Tara said...

This project is so cute, then again I love all of your projects. You are so talented and I appreciate you sharing that with all of us out here. I visit your site every day. I have been looking at the nestabilities and want to purchase them but I have a question. Can you use other die cutters besides the cuttlebug? I already have the sizzix with all of the pads. Do you think this will work?

Stefanie Staniak said...

Oh Mish, I'm in awe again. You just have to stop doing this to me. If I didn't have to come to work everyday, I'd be visiting you so my brain could absorb some of your talents!! Love this note card!

MichelleY said...

Totally ADORABLE....so cute I'm calling polka dot rule! LOL! Love the pop of baby doll pink on kraft....LOVE IT!

Whimsey said...

Love the projects; adorable! Also love the movie Bucket List; one of my all-time favorites. We lost DH's dad 18 mos. ago at the age of 66; he had so many things on his 'bucket list' so we really related to the story. Hope you enjoy!!!

Mish, again, another AWESOME project -- wherever do you come up with these projects? And how much of a stash of cards do you have? I love the tutorials of making lots of cards at once. You have great ideas! I do the same! It's nice to have them on hand. Now if I only sent them out and used them... that's another story! And I have to tell you. Since your kids have been home from school, you have not been blogging much and I am having Mish withdrawals. Seriously! You are my absolute FAVORITE blog - for sure!!! Keep it up! I always get giddy when I see in my google reader that your blog has been updated and can't wait to check out what you've been doing and/or designing! Judy H.
