Catnap Christmas Q-Set

Hello! Have you heard about the new Qsets from Stampendous? I'm going to share some information about them with you today. Qsets are a new kind of cling rubber stamp. They don't have the picture printed on them. Rather, the picture of the image is printed on the acetate sheet the stamps are attached to for storing. There are coordinating dies, but they are a limited quantity. The stamps are all made in the USA, and you'll find lots of fun Christmas and Halloween stamps to choose from! HERE is a video explaining the Qsets even further. Here's my card, featuring the Catnap Christmas Stamps and Dies.

I colored this kitty with Memento Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut him out, and then I created my background. I cut down a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4." I applied some Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink to my craft mat and sprayed it with water. I dragged the piece of cardstock through it, heat set it and reinked it a few times until I was happy with the results. Then I made sure it dried completely before I went on to my next step. I also inked up the oval that I would be using for the sentiment.

After the Oxides were dry, I used Festive Berries Distress Ink (not the Oxide) on a retro squares stencil (from Dreamweaver/Stampendous) with a small ink dauber. I allowed this to dry while I made my card base. I inked up the edge of my sentiment with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and adhered it and the kitty to the background, and then to the card base.

Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more fun creations using the new Qsets. I'll be back very soon with another project. 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…
