Rainbow Greetings Galore

Greetings! Really big greetings, that is. This week, the Stampendous Design Team is showcasing projects using the new Great Big Thanks and Great Big Happy stamp sets. I decided to create a rainbow on my card today, and it was really simple to do. My full instructions are below.
SSC1281: Greetings Galore
SSC1283: Big Words Thanks
MPW811: Mixed Media Paper

Imagine: Memento Inks in- Lady Bug, Tangelo, Dandelion, Cottage Ivy, Bahama Blue, Grape Jelly, Tuxedo Black
My Colors Cardstock: Fireflies
Kaiser: Silver Rhinestones
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner
Stamp Positioner (Not required, but helpful)

1. Cut a piece of MixedMedia Paper to 4" x 5."

2. Stick the brushstroke stamp from the Greetings Galore set to a stamp positioner or to an acrylic block. The stamp positioner isn't required, but it will certainly make creating this card easier. Stick the stamp where you would like the red brushstroke to be. This will allow you to move your card up to restamp the image with each color properly.

3. Place the Mixed Media Paper in the corner and stamp the image with Lady Bug Memento ink.

4. Move the Mixed Media Paper up 1/2."

5. Ink up the stamp with Tangelo Memento ink and stamp the paper again.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 with each of the colors mentioned, in rainbow order.

7. Remove the brushstroke stamp, and adhere the sentiment (from the Big Words Thanks set) to the stamp positioner. Remember to move the Mixed Media Paper back down into the corner of the positioner.

8. Ink the sentiment up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and stamp the image.

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

10. Adhere the stamped layer to the card base.

11. Apply 2 sizes of silver rhinestones to the stamped layer.

The new Big Happy Words and Thanks sets are going to be perfect for so many of the cards folks like us make every day. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more made with these extremely useful sets. 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…
