7. Drag Instant Dry photo paper through wet ink. Heat set.

8. Dab photo paper in wet ink again and heat set. Repeat until you achieve the desired look.

9. The chalk finish of the Distress Oxide Ink can rub off of this paper, so you may choose to buff it off with a tissue for a more vibrant look.

11. Glue the dogs to the photo paper.

12. Attach photo paper to card base.

What a WOW piece! I love color and am so impressed with the way you blended it so perfectly here! This is an explosion of color and energy, yet everything looks amazing balanced and is a feast for the eyes. I love the background and how it pairs with your central images so well.

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.

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

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…
