Imagine and Flourishes Blog Hop

Hello! Today is an exciting day, because the Imagine team is hopping along with Flourishes. I decided to use the My Cup Overflows clear stamp set, because coffee has been a bit of a requirement in my life lately.


I started off by stamping the images with Rich Cocoa Memento ink, and then I colored the mages with a few Memento markers. I die cut the colored images with a Fitted Frame from Stampendous.

I found some deep teal cardstock that I used for a nice layer. I stamped it with the fun coffee beans that come in the stamp set, and i used the Rich Cocoa Memento ink again. Another mat was made from a rich elderberry cardstock to pull out the purple in the coffee cup. I layered everything on a white card base.

A huge thank you to Flourishes for this wonderful blog hop! If you'd like to see more, please visit all of the hoppers by using the links below. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
