Sassy City

Hello Friends! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is sharing projects that use the new Sassy City Perfectly Clear Stamp Set. This set is filled with pretty silhouette stamps that make whipping up a quick card very simple. I made this one in about 10 minutes! My full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
SSC1279: Sassy City

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Sky
Imagine: VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne
Artist's Loft: Watercolor Paper, Watercolors
Scrapbook Adhesives: E-Z Runner

Directions:
1. On a piece of watercolor paper, loosely paint a sky and grass using 2 shades of blue and 2 shades of green.

2. Let dry.

3. Stamp the park scene on to the watercolor paper using Nocturne Ink.

4. Stamp the bicyclist using Nocturne Ink.

5. Stamp the sentiment also using Nocturne Ink.

6. Create the card base out of Sky Cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

7. Tear the edges of the watercolor paper to fit on the card base, allowing a border of blue to show.

8. Adhere the watercolor layer to the card base.

How easy is that?! I would like to make this with different colors of paint, to give the sky more of a sunrise/sunset kind of feel. Making a bunch of these quickly in different color variations would make a great gift. I'll be back soon with more projects. For now, please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog for more projects using this stamp set. 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…
