Poinsettia Pattern

Seasons Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing project with a "Merry and Bright" theme. Think lots of glitter, holiday cheer, and lots of red & green.  My card for today is pretty encrusted with the beautiful Twinkle Glitter from Stampendous. The shine in real life is holographic and beautiful! My full instructions to recreate this card is below.

8. Sprinkle on Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set.

9. Using the Large "H" Fitted Frame, die cut the sentiment.

10. On the stenciled layer, apply a line of On Point Glue all around the perimeter. Sprinkle with Twinkle Glitter.

11. On the card base, apply a line of Tear It Tape across the bottom of the card and across the right side.

12. Sprinkle with Twinkle Glitter.

I love that you tinted your embossing paste, and flowed it so carefully on your background, Alison - it made a beautiful texture and sheen to complement the amazing sparkle of your glitter! Beautiful sentiment, too.

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…
