Woody Christmas

Greetings! This week the Stampendous team is featuring projects with "Trees." Christmas trees, spooky trees, stenciled trees, etc. For my project today, I decided to use one of my favorite Christmas images from the July catalog, Woody Christmas. Now, I'm a fake tree kinda gal, but there's something special about the way this old woody has been decorated that makes me excited for Christmas. My full tutorial is below.

TP102: Gold Tinsel
DCP1006: Fitted Frames Set B

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Evergreen
Zig Clean Color Markers: 010, 022, 034, 038, 044, 051, 062, 065, 068, 072, 090, 091, 095, 260, 302, 400
Imagine: Summer Sky and Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, VersaMarker, Sponge Dauber
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Ranger: Water Brush
Kraft Cardstock

Directions:
1. Stamp the image on to Mixed Media Paper using VersaFine ink.

2. Color the image using the Zig Clean Color Markers listed. Use a water brush as needed.

3. Using the VersaMarker, apply dots to the ornaments on the wreath and garland and heat emboss with Gold Tinsel.

4. Die cut the colored image with the Large "P" Fitted Frame.

5. Ink the edges of the die cut image with Summer Sky Memento.

6. Die cut a piece of Evergreen Cardstock using the Small "R" Fitted Frame.

7. Create the card base out of Kraft Cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

8. Using a sponge dauber, ink the edges of the card base in a circular motion, beginning off the edge of the card and working in, with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

9. Using the Rich Cocoa Ink again, apply color directly from the pad to the very edge of the card base, keeping the line thin.

10. Adhere the two die cut layers to the card base.

This is colored so realistically that I can almost smell the pine scent and feel the metal of the car! You did a pine 🌲 and dandy job on this lovely card! TFS!

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…
