Sweet of You Frond and Vase

Hello out there! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects for "A Season of Thanks." Today, we all wanted to thank YOU, the Stampendous customer! To show our appreciation, we have created many different thank you cards. My full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
RS-H328- Sweet of You Stamp
DWLM2006- Small Fern Frond Metal Stencil
DWLM196- Tall Vase Metal Stencil
DWDGP- Gold Embossing Paste
DWLM2010- Paste Spreader
DWDPK- Palette Knife
DWNHB-9- 3/8" Stencil Brush

Other:

Beacon Adhesieves- Zip Dry Glue
Eyelets
Vellum


Directions:
1. On Mixed Media White Paper, tape down the vase stencil and emboss with Gold Embossing Paste using the Palette Knife and the Paste Spreader.

2. Once the paste has dried, tape the fern to the top of the vase and add color with the Stencil Brush using the middle color in the Fresh Greens Kaleidacolor ink set. Use the darker tones as you work your way out on to the fern's tips.

3. Flip the stencil to the other side (be sure to clean the stencil first!) to have the image face the other direction and to create more visual interest. Repeat the coloring process.

4. Add a third fern leaf to the vase.

5. Crop the image.

6. Dip an Ink Blusher into Summer Sky Memento Ink and buff the color around the edge of the cardstock.

7. Using Spiced Chai StazOn, stamp the Sweet of You stamp on to a piece of vellum.

8. Die cut the image with the small "H" Fitted Frame.

9. Attach the vellum to the vase with eyelets as shown in the photo.

10. Create the card base out of Madras Blue cardstock, cut to 6 1/2" x 10."

11. Using Potter's Clay Memento Marker, color in just the 'thank you" of the Sweet of You stamp.

12. Stamp the "thank you" up each side of the card base, recoloring the words after each impression.

13. Ink the edges of the card base with Golden Glitz Delicata ink.

14. Glue the layer with the vase to the card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Your stenciling and stamping are beautiful in those fabulously jewel-like earth tones! Love the shading in your ferns, and the border around your masterpiece. Gorgeous card, right down to the vellum sentiment.
Thank you another great inspirational card.
Great card! I love the way you stamped "thank you" on each side like a border.

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…
