Hello, friends! I'm back today with another beachy pineappley project for you! Can you tell I slightly LOVE just about anything tropical and beachy?!! I'm desperately trying to hold on to the last bit of Summer (before school starts next week), by scrapping one of my favorite photos from our vacation a few short weeks ago (I am SO ready to go back)! I hope you'll join me today over in Ellen Hutson's the CLASSroom for all the details on how I created this page. As promised, I've included detailed photo instructions on how to create the stamped watercolor pineapple I used here and on my pina colada card in the post below this one. I look forward to seeing you there! Continue reading

Hello, and welcome to the Late Summer 2016 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop . . . I’ll be showcasing several of the new stamp sets and dies in my post today! First up, I'm using the awesome Stay Golden stamp set and coordinating Stay Golden dies (All bold products are linked below in the supply section): (Click on the photos below to shop these products!): To create this card: (Click on any photo for a larger view) I absolutely adore pineapples and this set has some FABULOUS coordinating sentiments ... I couldn't pass up this pina colada one (since it's one of my favorite tropical drinks)! The pineapple stamps are offered in a 2-step type stamp for the largest pineapple (with separate greenery top), and two smaller one-piece solid pineapple stamps! You can either use the large pineapple two stamps together, or maybe just the criss-cross outline, if you want the option to hand color it with markers or pencils = great versatility! To create the large pineapple "cup" I used #52 Bright Yellow Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker on the solid pineapple, lightly spritzed it with water, then stamped it onto watercolor paper. Once the base was dry,... Continue reading

Yes, folks -- August arrives on Monday, can you believe it? The summer is almost over and school will be starting soon, so that makes it time for another monthly calendar from me! (Click on any photo for a larger view. All bold products are linked below in the supply section). This month's calendar uses a brand new Fall Pink Ink stamp, Apple Stand #2275H. You can see all the newest Fall/Holiday stamps from Pink Ink HERE. The calendar grid is one I made on my computer. I sized it approximately 4.50" wide x 3" tall, to fit inside the largest stitched scalloped Frame in Frame 2 dies from Taylored Expressions. The calendars are shown at left (click on the photo for a larger view), with outlines of where the die will cut. I have made the calendar available as a free download for you (without the die outlines, so you can just trim and use however you'd like), which includes August through December ... Enjoy! You can download the calendars HERE: Download 2016_calendarsAug-Q4_SharonHarnist For future quick finding, the download will also be included on my Download page HERE. Now for that cool background ... Here's how it was created:... Continue reading

Hello, Friends! My family is headed to the beach soon and I can not wait to feel the warm sand between my toes and listen to the crashing waves! That is DEFINITELY what inspired today's card! All of these fun stamps are from Pink Ink Stamp Co -- the great Beachtown Fence, Beach Sign, and Sandy Toes sentiment. Let me tell you how this card came together (All bold products are linked below in the supply section): After stamping the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, I tore a piece of scrap cardstock to use as a mask to create the waves. I placed the mask along the bottom 1/4 of the card, where I wanted the edge of the waves to meet the sand, then I softly airbrushed Copic B00 along the the edge of the torn mask. (I have moved the mask upward a little in the photo, so you can see where the airbrushing occurred). In all of my airbrushing, I am getting close to the stamped fence/images, trying not to get too much overspray onto the image ... This is my lazy way of not having to use a mask! You...

I hope you all have had the chance to try out Taylored Expressions’ beautiful new ink pads -- I’ve used them two different ways on this 8-inch scrapbook page -- for watercoloring the background and selectively inking the sentiment title! This page is about a wonderful milestone in our family … our oldest daughter received her driving permit this past Fall {sniff!} so, of course, it HAD to be documented! That great "Memories" frame I used is part of the Retirement Sale currently going on at Taylored Expressions so if you like it, you better scoop it up quickly! You can shop the Retirement Sale HERE. I hope you'll join me today over on the Taylored Expressions blog for all the details about this scrapbook page!
