Blooming Globe

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team has been sharing projects from the brand new October Catalog. I am loving so many of these stamps, and I hope that you do too! Today's project features the Blooming Globe stamp, coincidentally, with another type of rainbow background (did you see my post on Monday?). I guess I'm getting all of these bright, cheery colors out of my system before the 31 Days of Halloween begins in a few days! Check out my directions on how to recreate this card yourself below.


Supplies:
Stampendous:
P314: Blooming Globe
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Yellow Corn
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 022, 023, 026, 027, 029, 030, 032, 040, 041, 045, 047, 050, 051, 052, 081, 082, 083, 084, 090, 099, 200, 202, 220, 222, 302, 803
Imagine: VersaFine Ink: Onyx Black, VersaMark Ink
Ranger: Distress Oxide Inks in: Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, Ink Blending Tools
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Strathmore: Smooth Bristol Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: Tape Runner
Water Spritzer Bottle


Directions:
1. Stamp the image with VersaFine ink on to Mixed Media paper.

2. Color the image with the Zig Clean Color Markers indicated.

3. Cut the image out. I chose to leave a white border around it.

4. Cut a piece of Smooth Bristol Paper to the size of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

5. Using Ink Blending Tools, swipe each of the Distress Oxides across the Bristol Paper in a horizontal line, in rainbow order.

6. Blend the colors as necessary to get a fully blended rainbow.

7. Spritz the Distress Oxides with water to get them to react. Blot off excess water after letting it sit for a minute or two to get lighter colors. Let dry completely.

8. Create the card base out of Yellow Corn cardstock, cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."

9. Temporarily place the Blooming Globe on the Oxide background to figure out placement for the sentiment.

10. Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Detail White Embossing Powder.

11. Attach the Blooming Globe to the background, and the background to the card base.

I hope you enjoyed the previews this week. If you missed any posts, please visit the Stampendous Blog for all of the links. 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…
