Peace on Earth

Season's Greetings! Today, I am sharing a new card tutorial featuring some of the wonderful products from Imagine. We were given the themes of "White" and " Shimmer and Sparkle" for the month of December, so I decided to combine the 2 into one card.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Creative Medium: Chartreuse
Sheer Shimmer Spritz: Sparkle and Frost

Other:
Stampendous: Peace on Earth Stencil, Palette Knife
Tombow: Foam Tape
White Cardstock: 1 smooth, 1 textured
EK Success: Corner Rounder

Directions:

1. Tape the stencil to smooth white cardstock. Scoop out some Chartreuse Creative Medium and glob it at the top of the stencil. Be sure to have the Creative Medium spanning the entire with of the stencil.

2. Holding the palette knife at a 45 degree angle, spread the Creative Medium in a single, smooth sweep across the entire stencil. If any spots are missed, you can touch them up, but try not to overwork the Creative Medium.

3. Remove the stencil and wash off any excess Creative Medium. Let the paste dry on your cardstock.

4. Trim the dried piece and use a corner rounder punch on each corner.

5. Spray with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Sparkle. You can see some of the sparkle in the photo above. In real life, it glimmers so beautifully. But it's tough to capture it on camera. You can also see the pretty opalescent green shimmer of the Chartreuse Creative Medium.


6. Create the card base with a textured white cardstock. Cut to 8" x 5 1/2." Spray the card with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You can see the shine in the above photo. Again, it is much more visible in real life.

7. Using Tombow's foam tape, apply 4 strips across the back of the stenciled layer for rigidity. Press on to card base.

The card is finished! It's subtle, but elegant and full of shimmer ans sparkle. I hope you'll give this white on white look a try!

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…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
