Easter Egg Juggle

Greetings! All this week, the Stampendous Design Team has been playing along with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog. It has been a pleasure sharing projects that feature the sweetest little mice. Since Easter is right around the corner, I decided to share a project with Easter Egg Juggle. This card has a lot of layers, and it was fun to create! My full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
HMQ19: House Mouse Easter Egg Juggle
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes
EP514: Bright Pink Embossing Powder
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Coral Rose, Sky, Wildflower, Yellow Corn
Bo Bunny: Kiwi Vintage Double Dot #12KV913
Imagine: VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black, VersaMark Ink
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 028, 041, 047, 048, 049, 064, 069, 071, 093, 094, 202, 302, 803, 901
Pale Gray Cardstock
Scrapbook Adhesives: Tape Runner, Foam Squares


Directions:
1. Stamp the House Mouse image on to Cason Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black.

2. Color the image using the Zig Clean Color Markers listed.

3. Die cut the image out with the Large Q Fitted Frame.

4. Die cut Coral Rose, Sky, Wildflower, and Yellow Corn, also with the Large Q.

5. Create the card base out of pale gray cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

6. Cut a mat from Kiwi Vintage Double Dot, cut to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4"  and attach to the card base.

7. Glue the cardstock die cuts together, rotating each color slightly. You may want to add some foam squares to the highest layers, as they will be so far off of the card.

8. Add the stamped layer to the top of the die cut stack.

9. Glue the die cut stack to the card base, being careful to keep the stamped image straight.

10. Stamp the sentiment to the mat with VersaMark Ink.

11. Heat emboss the sentiment with Bright Pink Embossing Powder.

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…
