Party Peeking

Hello! Today I wanted to share a card that I made quite some time ago, but never got around to posting. Does that happen to you too? You get a bunch of posts pre-written, but some of them just never go live? This is one of them, and shame on me for it, because this Party Peeking House Mouse stamp is so adorable! And that bright background? Super easy to make. Check out my full instructions below.

4. Cut another piece of Mixed Media Paper to 5 1/4" x 4."

5. Click the Kaleidacolor inks together, and roll your brayer on to the inks. Spritz the brayer with Ink Potion No. 9 to get the colors to blend and migrate better.

6. Roll the brayer on to the Mixed Media Paper in an up and down motion, being careful to not roll the colors diagonally. Let dry.

7. Create the card base with Banana Pepper cardstock cut to 5 1/2" x 8."

8. Create a mat of Mint Julep, cut to 3 1/2" x 4 1/4." Round the corners.

9. Adhere the Kaleidacolor background to the card base.

10. Tilt the Mint Julep mat and adhere on a diagonal.

11. Tilt the House Mouse image in the opposite direction of the Mint Julep mat, and adhere.

12. Glue 5 flat cobalt blue sequins to the card using On Point Glue.

The coloring of the stamped image took a bit of time, but the rest of the card came together nice and fast, which is great. 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…
