Aloha...

One of my favorite ways to use die cuts recently is to create patterned paper with them. I used the new Crafters Companion Lace Bloom 3D Flower for todays card. I die cut the flowers in light orange cardstock and adhered them to dark orange cardstock. Such an easy but fun technique!

Stampendous and Art Anthology

Welcome back! Yesterday I created a "SNOW" banner and woke up to the first snowfall of the year. Maybe if I post a summery card today, I'll wake up to summer weather ;)


Supplies Used:
Art Anthology (Juicy and Hottie Spray)
Spectrum Noir (PP5, PP6, FS8, CR1, CG3)
Beacon (Zip Dry, 3 in 1, Fast Finish)


I laid the mask down and sprayed two colors of Art Anthology spray on white cardstock. To blend the colors, I sprayed water over top. 


I die cut two sizes of butterflies. I stamped Floral Tapestry on the smaller butterfly and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers.  I covered the larger butterfly diecut with Fast Finish and sprinkled glitter over. I layered the butterflies and embellished with a button/bow.

Stampendous and Art Anthology Week...


Stampendous and Art Anthology are teaming up to bring you lots of inspiration this week! I used the Small Clear Scrap Pennants as the base for my banner.


Using Clear Scraps 12 x 12 Nordic Snowflake Mascil, I stenciled on White Dreamweavers Paste. While the paste is still I sprinkled on Stampendous Crystal glitter. 

I diecut a snowflake from chipboard using the Stampendous Snowflake Die Set. I painted this and the chipboard letters with white acrylic paint and sprinkled on glitter. The snowflake will become the "O" in my title. 


I diluted the Blue Sorbet paint and Hottie Spray and painted the Stampendous Snowman Warm Ears Cling stamp image. 



I added some of the Art Anthology Sorbet and Sprays to the Creative Palette and diluted them with water. I pressed white cardstock down on the Creative Palette. Lift paper off and repeat if desired. I used this paper behind the alphabet chipboard pieces.  


Whats a blog hop without some prized! Want to know what you can win?
