It's time to do the Blog Hop

I am so excited to join this group of designers from Dreamweaver Stencils and Core'dinations as well as the fabulous designers on the Stampendous team for our 

 SANDY Claus is Coming to Town!


Of course, there will be prizes, and we give away the best…this time with a mix of funCore’dinations products as well. To be one of three prize package winners, follow the posted link lists each day, leave a comment, and winners will be selected from these comments at the beginning of next week. This is what you might win:

I saw the Dreamweaver Stencils I received it was going to be a traditional color Christmas card all the way.

  1. Tear and adhere Vintage Green cardstock onto bottom of A7 Kraft card.
  2. Dry emboss the Xmas Tree stencil with a burnisher/stylus onto Chalk Core cardstock and then sand with the Sand-It Set.
  3. Add contrast by replacing the stencil over the sanded image and using white paint and a stencil brush to highlight areas of the tree.
  4. Glue down to card base.
  5. Adhere torn strip of Vintage Ruby cardstock along the bottom of the card.
  6. Stamp Vintage Couple with Versamark Watermark ink onto vellum and then cut out and place on the card with Thin 3D Foam Black Squares (Scrapbook Adhesives)
  7. Add differing sizes of DODZ adhesive dots around the tree in three successions for each color of glitter.
  8. Use a Big Brush pen to draw a rough border line on the chalk core cardstock.
  9. Glitter the star last, because it's always the last thing to be added. :)

Here are the collaboration products I used on my projects.

Haunted MIX{-Ability} Challenge

It's a haunting Friday in the Mix-Ability forum! Jeanne is hosting the challenge this week and she's asked us to create using a Halloween theme or Halloweenish colors. And here is how I took the challenge:

My favorite mixed medium is paint and for backgrounds, so I used some halloweenish colors and my Creative Palette to create the monoprint background. I stamped Tangled Border around the edges with acrylic paint that was pounced onto the stamp with a damp sponge.

I stamped Punkin Pals and colored with Copic Markers. Here are the colors if you're interested.

G82, G94, YG05, YR23, YR24, YR27, E08, Y17, V15, V17, V20, RV63, T4, T6, T8, W9 (with Copic Airbrush Adapter Set 3)

I created a sticky note mask by stamping off the image on a sticky note and then cutting it out and placing it over the colored Punkin Pals. Then I used my Copic airbrush tool with a copic marker to darken the paper around the image before trimming around the image. I used a piece of denim and colorless blending refill to create a texture on the Punkin Pals.

MIX90: Haunted Mix!

Stamps: Punkin Pals, Tangled Border (Stampendous)
Paper: White Sulphite (Pacon), Eggplant Envy (Stampin' Up) purple stash
Ink: Tuxedo Black  (Tsukineko), alcohol markers and colorless refill (Copic), acrylic paints (Various Liquitex, Amsterdam)
Accessories: Creative Palette Monoprinting Palette (Stampendous), silk binding ribbon (Hug Snug), Copic Airbrush Adapter Set 3

Some of the products from this project I found for a Quick Buy!
