Llama Curio

Hello hello! Today I am sharing a card I made with one of the newest Stampendous Curio stamps, the Llama. He is a fresh take on a llama that had come out previously, and this time, as I mentioned, he's a Curio stamp. That means that he's a wooden wooden sculptures ideal for decorating your crafting area or giving to crafty friends. On the back of each, you'll find a matching rubber stamp in the finest gray rubber, closely trimmed, with a foam cushion. Check out my card with the Curio stamp beside it.

You can see that the stamp is nice and big, so it's a perfect focal point for your creation. Here's a shot of just the card.

I wanted to go with a wintry feel for this card, so I stuck with aquas, teals, and greens for coloring the llama's presents and accessories. 

I created my background with Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, and Broken China. I applied the colors in stripes with my Ink Blending Tools and then spritzed with water. I also added a bit of color to my craft mat after the first layer of color was dry, spritzed the mat with water, and put the cardstock into the wet ink to pick up the splotches. After that, I chose my sentiment from the new Holiday Wishes Perfectly Clear set and stamped it in Twilight VersaFine Clair Ink. Next I added 2 types of snowflakes from the Skating Penguins set with Delicata ink in Silvery Shimmer.

That's it for me today. I'll be back tomorrow with a new card featuring some Sparkle Blends! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more fabulous creations. 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…
