Blossom Breeze

Hello! I have been really enjoying playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges (they have such an INCREDIBLE Design Team!), and this week was no different. The challenge is "All Creatures Great and Small." So I decided to use a House Mouse stamp. Because of that, I am also entering it into this week's House Mouse & Friends Challenge. I'll be using it for the "Anything Goes" side of their challenge.

This is Blossom Breeze, and I colored it with my Zig Clean Color Markers on Canson Mixed Media Paper.

It's been pretty bluster on Long Island this past week, so I thought this was a great stamp to use.

Because there is a lot happening within the image, I kept the rest of my card simple. I used some shades of blue and a little green cardstock from My Colors, and added a stripe of Tear It! Tape from Imagine down the side and coated it with Burgundy Glitter. That's it for me today! 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…
