Grateful Shaker Card

Hello! Can you believe that it is the last day of August? July took it's sweet time, but August just flew! It makes me so sad that Summer is coming to an end, but I am looking forward to the Fall. Last week, I got to go to the Scrapbook and Stamp Expo in Edison, NJ where I had an amazing time with my husband and met up with a couple of my crafty friends. I also got to meet Gina K, which was the highlight of the day! She is just wonderful, and I was so excited to see her demonstrate the Wreath Builder in person. Of course, I had to get one, but alas...the Wreath Builder Templates were out of stock. The Autumn Wreath Builder stamps were still available, so I grabbed one of those...and here I sit as I wait for my Templates to arrive. But, I couldn't wait any longer to use my new stamps, so I used them to create a non-wreath card.

I enjoyed making the card so much that I decided to do a FB Live to teach my crafty friends how to make it as well. If you would like to get all of the details on how to make it, please check out my FB Live video HERE.

I started off by die cutting a circular window using a die from Elizabeth Crafts. I then stamped the circle from the Autumn Wreath Builder inside the opening, right on to my card base. Then, using the Kaleidacolor Inks in Creole Spice from Imagine, I inked up some of the leaves using two colors at a time and stamped them in the circle on my base. Next, I stamped and embossed my sentiment and the added the leaves on to my top layer. I created my shaker with But First, Coffee Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground, and added a few sequins to the top layer of the card with On Point Glue from Imagine.

I hope you check out my video. I have really been enjoying doing these FB Lives. I'll have more to share here on my blog, as well as on Facebook soon. 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…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
