1. Stamp Ornament Warmth image on to Mixed Media Paper with Nocturne Ink.

2. Color the stamped image with the Spectrum Noir markers listed.

3. Die cut the colored image with the Small "P" Fitted Frame.

4. Create the card base out of Classic Cherry cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

5. Die cut pine boughs from the Build A Wreath die set using Mint Julep and Evergreen cardstock. Be sure to flip some pieces of cardstock over and die cut the back side so that you have the boughs going in both directions.

6. Die cut the bow out of Stampendous Mixed Media White Paper.

7. Cover the bow with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Champagne Embossing Powder.

8. Repeat Step 7 if necessary.

9. Stamp the sentiment on Stampendous Mixed Media White Cardstock with Nocturne Ink.

10. Die cut the sentiment with the Large "K" Fitted Frame, keeping the sentiment on the left side of the die.

11. Attach the sentiment to the lower right side of the card base, trimming off the excess.

12. Glue all layers.

I love the shine on the bow and the dimension that the pine sprigs give to the card without adding too much bulk. And of course, that House Mouse stamp is so sweet! Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more wonderful 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…

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…
