Laurel Burch Birthday Corners

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is featuring bright and colorful projects that feature Laurel Burch stamps. We are so lucky to get to work with Laurel's fun artwork, and I am excited to share a few projects with you this week. Today's card uses some images from the Birthday Corners set. I recommend using a stamp positioner if you have one if you'd like to duplicate this card, but it's not required. You may just need to take a little more time to line things up. My full instructions are below.


Supplies: 
Stampendous:
SSCL108: LB Birthday Corners
DCP1009: Spring Border Dies

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Concord Jam, Atlantic Shore
Imagine: Memento Markers: Pistachio, New Sprout, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Rose Bud, Grape Jelly, Lady Bug, Summer Sky, Bahama Blue, Lilac Posies, Lulu Lavender. VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black. Rose Bud Memento Ink
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ-Dots
Tonic: Time Holtz Stamp Platform
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Pink Cardstock


Directions:
1. Cut a 4" x 4" square of Mixed Media Paper.

2. Use Stamp Platform to line the Floral corner stamp up at the 2" mark.

3. Ink the stamp with VersaFine ink and stamp on to the Mixed Media Paper square.

4. Rotate the square, reink the stamp and stamp the image.

5. Repeat step 4 two more times to get 4 stamped corners on the square.

6. Color the images using the Memento Markers listed. I colored the same part on each of the 4 stamped images at once, to keep myself from getting confused.

7. Trim 1/8" off of each side of the square.

8. Cut a 4" x 4" square of Atlantic Shore cardstock.

9. Create the card base out of Concord Jam cardstock, cut to the size of 4 1/4" x 11."

10. Die cut the floral Border Die out of pink cardstock.

11. Lightly tap the die cut border with Rose Bud Memento Ink to add color to the piece.

12. Glue all layers.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Stampendous team over on the Stampendous Blog. I will be adding this to Imagine's Raspberry Color Challenge via Instagram. I just love color challenges! I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, which is "In My Garden." 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…
