Feline Christmas

Hello! The Stampendous Design Team has been giving some sneak peeks to some of the new stamps that will be in the July catalog this week. Today, I am sharing one of the new Laurel Burch stamps, called Feline Christmas. I really like this stamp, and I loved coloring it. The image is large enough that you don't need to do much more to the card, except perhaps throw on a sentiment like I did. My full instructions are below.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
LBW013: Laurel Burch Feline Christmas
SSC1291: Holiday Wishes
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Parrot
Bo Bunny: Powder Blue Vintage Double Dot- #12PBV968
Imagine: VersaFine Clair: Nocturne Ink, StazOn: Spiced Chai Ink
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 022, 023, 029, 032, 036, 043, 040, 041, 044, 045, 050, 065, 068, 070, 260
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner

Directions:
1. Stamp Feline Christmas on to Mixed Media Paper using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne.

2. Color the stamped image with the Zig Markers listed.

3. Die cut the colored image using the Small "W" Fitted Frame.

4. Die cut a piece of Parrot cardstock using the Large "W" Fitted Frame.

5. Create the card base using Powder Blue Vintage Double Dot, cut to 4 1/4" x 11." If you don't want the entire card to be made of this cardstock, simply cut a panel that is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and create the card base out of white heavy weight cardstock.

6. Stamp a sentiment from the Holiday Wishes stamp set with SPiced Chai StazOn ink. You do not need to use StazOn, I just thought the color was perfect. So any brown you have will do.

7. Glue all layers using EZ Runner adhesive.

What colors would you use for the cat? I purposely shied away from the traditional red and green. I thought that the orange and blue would be fun, and since they are opposite on the color wheel, I knew they would really pop. I'll have another new project to share soon so I hope you'll visit me again when I do. Please visit the Stampendous Blog to see more projects from the team. 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…
