Porpoise Fun Windowrama

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is "Under the Sea" projects. I am really excited to share this card with you, because it uses the Windowrama Die set. I have so much fun making these shadowbox-type cards. Below are my full instructions.
Supplies:
Stampendous:
QS5028: Porpoise Fun Stamp Set
DCP1012: Windowrama Die Set
DCP1005: Fitted frames Set A
FRG10C: Shaved Ice

Other:
Bo Bunny: Powder Blue Vintage Cardstock #12BPV968
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 021, 037, 044, 047, 062, 063, 065, 072, 091, 092, 097, 302, 303
Imagine: On Point Glue, VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne, Tear It! Tape
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Ranger: Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans, Ink Blending Tools
Acetate

Directions:
1. Stamp the Porpoise Fun image on to Mixed Media Paper with VersaFine Clair Ink.

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

3. Die cut the colored image with the circle from the Windowrama Die Set.

4. Die cut two panels of the Windowrama out of Powder Blue Vintage Cardstock.

5. Die cut the circle out of one of the Windowrama panels.

6. Cut a piece of acetate to fit behind the window and adhere with Tear It! Tape.

7. On the inside of the back piece of the Windowrama, apply Faded Jeans Distress Ink with an Ink Blending Tool, making a circle slightly bigger than the die cut colored image. This will create a halo effect around the image.

8. Stamp the sentiment on Mixed Media cardstock with VersaFine Clair ink.

9. Die cut the sentiment with the Large "B" Fitted Frame.

10. Ink the sentiment lightly with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

11. Adhere the colored image, sentiment, and seal up the Windowrama with Tear It! Tape.

12. Apply On Point Glue to the lower half of the circle, and sprinkle on Shaved Ice.
I love this happy little porpoise! He's such a cutie. And pairing him with the Windowrama Die set adds fun dimension and interest. I hope you'll get the Windowrama for yourself. There is so much you can do with it. Be sure to visit the rest of the Stampendous Team, you can get their links over on the Stampendous Blog. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
