Wreath on the Door

The Wondrous Wreath stamp set from the Holiday Catalog is wonderful.  It is such a beautiful image yet it is so easy to do.  Your family and friends will be very impressed to know that you made this card just for them.

Christmas DoorI just sponged the edges of Very Vanilla rectangles and adhered them to the "door" front.

Window Sheet Flower

This technique is lots of fun.  It's almost like Shrinky Dinks — do you remember those. 

Window SheetI stamped the flower image from the Flower Shop stano set onto a piece of Stampin' Up! Window Sheet using Stazon ink.  Turn the stamped piece over and color the flowers with the Blendability markers.  Punch out with the coordinating Pansy Punch.  Hold the flower with a pair of tweezers and using the Heat Gun apply hot air to the plastic (be careful not to burn yourself).  You can see the plastic start to thicken and curl, move around the flower until all the petals are done.

I used a Candy Dot Base Brad and colored it with the Daffodil Delight Blendability.  Adhere the flower to card front with glue dot.  Then I punched a hold in the center of the flower, insert the brad and attach the piece to the front of your card.

The ladies thought this would be fun with a fish stamp — you could color it with the Night of Navy and Coastal Cabana Blendabilities.  So many ideas to play with — give it a try.

HELLO Blendabilities

This card was made in this month's Blendabilities class.  This is a favorite technique of mine.  I stamped the flower border image from Bordering Blooms stamp set with VersaMark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  Once it cooled down I used the darkest Rich Razzleberry and the medium Old Olive Blendabilities to color over the white embosses image.

Colored EmbossingThis technique kind of reminds me of my kids playing with a Lite Brite.  I'm not sure why but the colored image on the black background just reminds of that.  We then colored the Rhinestones with the darkest Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities.  Hello from the Hi There stamp set is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink.

If you haven't tried the Blendabilities yet, I highly recommend them — they are loads of fun to use.
