Snowman Season


Another week has flown by, like Santa in his sleigh! He’ll be here before you know it, only 38 more sleeps until he comes sliding down the chimney! Are you ready?? Have you been naughty or nice?
Stampendous is going to be nice this week and give away one of their new Santa On His Way stamps to a lucky commenter who leaves a comment on the Stampendous Blog for the week or on those of the Design Team. In case you need to find those spots, here are the links for MONDAYWEDNESDAY and Friday.
Here's how my card was made.
1.  Stamp Snowman Season on Mixed Media White Cardstock with black ink and color with pencils.
2.  Apply Art Glitter Glue to the fur parts of the hats and sprinkle with Crystal Micro Glitter, let dry.
3.  Cut out using a circle die and set aside.
4.  Cut a strip of Double Sided Mounting Paper and use a ruler to draw line on the top carrier paper.  Using a craft knife, carefully cut through the carrier only not the sticky mounting paper. Remove every other strip.
5.  Sprinkle Red Micro Fine Glitter, rub in and shake off excess.
Remove the remaining carrier strips and sprinkle with Crystal Micro Glitter, shake off excess and stick to a panel of decorative paper.
6.  Cut a strip of Double Sided Mounting paper, adhere to the left edge of the decorative paper and sprinkle with Crystal Micro Glitter.
7.  Glue to a red card and pop up Snowman Season with foam squares.

Autumn Glitz

Thinking of You


It's Sweet Sunday Team Inspiration day at Rubbernecker Stamps and I have a card made with the Fall Foliage two part set but I only used the tree.  To make the background, I rubbed ink pads on a long thin acrylic block in Mowed Lawn, Marigold and Straw.  The block was then sprayed with water and the ink was stamped on a white panel.  Once dry the trees were stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with Twilight embossing powder.  Thinking of You was stamped on a white tag, embossed with Twilight.  It was then stamped with one of the small stamps from the Splatter Stains sets in Marigold and Straw, layered on black, tied with ribbon and popped up on the card.

Now head on over to the Rubbernecker Blog and see what the other designers have for you!

31 Days of Halloween, Day 27


Here's my last card for 31 Days of Halloween that Stampendous is playing along with.  To make the card Chilling was stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear.  Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord and Hickory Smoke were sponged onto the image after masking fluid dried on the eyes and lips.

After the image was sponged the masking fluid was removed to reveal the bright white paper.  This was then glued to an orange panel that had been sponged with Hickory Smoke ink.  It was then glued to a black card that was stamped with Industrial in Silvery Shimmer ink.

Happy Halloween was stamped on acetate with black StazOn ink and cut out.  I had to think for a while on how to attach it to the card since glue would show through the acetate.  A large orange rhinestone was placed on the acetate and a dot of glue was placed under it then placed on the card, it worked perfectly.

Hickory Smoke ink was rubbed on white May Arts Ribbon, tied in a knot and glued to the card.  Black and orange rhinestones were then placed on the ribbon.

31 Days of Halloween, Day 22


It's day 22 of the 31 Days of Halloween and the Stampendous Design Team has been making amazing creations all month.  Today I have a card using the Spider Fear Perfectly Clear Set to stamp the spider in black and Spooky Wishes Perfectly Clear Set to stamp the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and embossing with white to make a clean yet creepy card...because anything with a spider is creepy!  To make the spider look like a black widow, I added a Red Dot Sparkler.

I used an embossing folder to emboss the spider web, and have the spider dangling off a string of rhinestones.
