Arabesque and Moroccan Mesh

Hello! This week,the Stampendous DT is sharing projects that use the new Moroccan Tile 6x6 stamp. Well, I had realized that I hadn't shared a card I had made with the Moroccan Mesh stencil that came out in January, so I thought it was a good time to share that with you.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
W197: Arabesque Stamp
FMS4084: Moroccan Mesh Stencil
EP222: Carnelian Pearlustre Embossing Powder
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes Perfectly Clear Stamp Set
DWNHB-9: 3/8" Stencil Brush
MPW811: Mixed Media White Paper

Other:
Neenah: Desert Storm Cardstock
Imagine: VersaMark Ink, VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem, Memento Ink in Potter's Clay, Tear It! Tape
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Dot, White Foam Squares
Teal Satin Ribbon

Directions:
1. On a piece of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" Mixed Media White paper, tape down the Moroccan Mesh Stencil.

2. Using the Stencil Brush, apply Turquoise Gem VersaMagic to the entire piece. Remove Stencil.

3. On another piece of Mixed Media White Paper, stamp the Arabesque image with VersaMark Ink.

4. Sprinkle Carnelian Embossing Powder on top of the stamped image, shake off excess, and heat set.

5. Cut around the shape of the Arabesque stamp.

6. Create the card base out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, cut to the size of 4 1/4 x 11."

7. Adhere a piece of turquoise satin ribbon to the bottom of the stenciled layer using Tear It! Tape.

8. Stamp the brushed "Hello" stamp on to a small piece Mixed Media White Paper using Potter's Clay Memento ink.

9. On the card base, apply VersaMark ink to the 2 vertical sides.

10. Sprinkle Carnelian Embossing Powder on to the sides, shake off excess and heat set.

11. Apply white foam squares to the bottom of the Arabesque image and adhere to the stenciled layer.

12. Attach stenciled layer to the card base with EZ Dots.

This is a pretty quick card to pull together, and the color possibilities are endless. It would be fun to make a stationary set as a gift with each card featuring a different stenciled color. I may need to do that myself! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what the rest of the team is sharing today. 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…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
