Cyclamen

Spring is almost here! I can feel it. And I cannot wait! Today, I wanted to share a card I made that feels very much like Spring to me. Although in my area, Cyclamen are houseplants, the stamp and stencil I used makes me think of all the wonderful plants that will soon be sprouting in my garden.


Supplies:
Stampendous:
P294: Cyclamen Stamp
DWLJ825: Jungle Leaves
SSC1239: Spring Sentiments
FREG041: Shabby Green Embossing Enamel
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper
STF082- VersaFine Onyx Black Ink
HT400: Embossing Heat Tool

Other:
Zig Clean Color Markers: 043, 044, 045, 046, 081, 082, 303
Imagine: VersaMagic in Tea Leaves and Aspen Mist, Kalediacolor in Vinyard, Lilac Posies Memento marker or ink, Sponge Daubers
Bazzill: Snapdragon
Beacon Adhesives: Zip Dry Glue
Directions:
1. Stamp the image on to Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine ink.

2. Color using the markers listed above.

3. Loosely fussy cut the image and set aside.

4. To create the leaves background, tape the stencil to a piece of Mixed Media paper. Using sponge daubers, apply ink starting with the blue shade in the Vineyard Kaleidacolor. Sponge randomly, and do not cover the entire stencil.

5. Next, use the Aspen Mist ink, followed by Pear Tart. You may want to go back and add a little Aspen Mist again to help blend the colors.

6. Add a little of the green shade in the Kaleidacolor pad. Be sure to use a different sponge dauber for each color.

7. Remove and clean stencil.

8. To make the card base, cut a piece to 6 1/2" x 10."

9. Make a border around all four edges using Lilac Posies ink or marker.

10. Sprinkle the edges with Shabby Green and heat from underneath. Do only one side at a time.

11. Stamp a sentiment from the Spring Sentiments set in VersaFine on the leaves background.

12. Glue all layers with Zip Dry.


The stenciled background is so pretty, and it works so well with the purple cyclamen flowers. 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…
