Pink Your Christmas

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing Christmas projects featuring stamps from the Pink Your Life collection. I used the Whisper Friends Gift Wrapping stamp for my card.

I stamped her with VersaFine ink in Onyx Black, and colored her in with Tombow Dual Brush Markers. I used a couple of Fitted Frames to die cut the colored image, as well as a mat.

The background of the card was super easy to make. I used the Fruitcake Kaleidacolor ink pad from Imagine. I simply rolled the colors on to my brayer, spritzed the brayer with some Ink Potion No. 9, (this helps the ink to move better and to blend) and then I rolled it on to my Mixed Media White Paper from Stampendous. Once it dried, I added my colored image and mat to the layer. My card base is red, and I added a line of Imagine's Tear It! Tape to the lower portion of the card, and added my all-time favorite glitter- Multi Crystal Glitter Mix. It's gorgeous. I also added a little sentiment from the Holiday Expressions stamp set.

That's my finished card. It came together nice and quick, which is super important at this time of year. Please visit the Stampendous Blog to see more Pink Your Christmas cards. Thanks 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…
