Pin ItThis is my first post back as an official Dreamweaver Team member!  What fun start with a Stampendous Cross Promotion!  Welcome to another "Dream-Pendous" week of inspiration! The Stampendous team and the Dreamweaverteam are collaborating once again with all the fun toys in both team's arsenal. Of course, as usual, there will be great prizes available for those who comment throughout this week. In face there will be three prize packages available to win. Each will have a great selection of Dreamweaver Stencils and Stampendous images and dies...one of which being the new "Blossom Beauty" face image as shown on the badge above.

This is my finished piece! So my supply list is as follows:
WorldWin Cardstock
Glossy White Cardstock

Damask Stencil
White Embossing Paste
Several colors of Art Glitter
Face Stamp and Floral Stamp
Sakura Glaze Pens
Crystal Sheet from Connie Crystal
Glossy Accents
Pop Dots
Brilliance Ink from Tsukineko
 Step 1: Make color background with glossy paper and Alcohol Ink.
Step 2:  Secure stencil to paper and spread paste.  Remove stencil then sprinkle with glitter colors of choice. Let dry.
 Step 3: Stamp face with Brillance Ink.
Step 4: Stamp Flower and Die Cut out with matching Die.

 Step 5: Color areas desired with glaze pens
A closer look.  With the shimmer paper under the Glaze Pens it really looks pretty
I layered the face on the background and trimmed everything to fit.  I did pop up one eye and added the Connie Crystal sparkle to one eye and the flower center.  I like it really well and hope you enjoyed this as well.  Now HOP on to the other blogs!  Please leave a comment at each stop along the way.

Happy Creating!

Easter Egg with Unity Stamps and Ann Butler

Pin It

I decided to try something new.   I know, shock!  I started with the supplies as follows:
White Makins Clay
Ann Bullter Crafter's Ink
Ann Butler Designs Stamps from Unity
Egg Stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils
Earth Safe Finishes from Ann Butler
Crystal Sheets from Connie Crystal.

I rolled out the air dry clay pretty thin and stamped the designs.  I then used an craft knife to trim around my egg stencil.  I like the metal stencil for this as it is more stale.
Next I let it air dry for a a bit then added the iridescent Earth Safe Paint.
Yes, I went around the edges with the ink.  I placed the crystals to see what would look the way I desired.
A little closer look...
I finished with I ring of Crystal Sheet around the egg for the perfect finishing touch.  I added magnet to the back for a a fun Easter Egg Note holder on the fridge!

Hope you liked my EGG-STRA special project! Just think what other seasonal decorations could be made!  Ornaments, Pumpkins, Shells, Shamrocks and more!!!
Happy Creating

EZ-De's Faux Quilt Square

Pin It
I have been so excited to be part of Ann Butler's Design Team.  Love the stamps from both Kelly Crafts and Unity!  This Craft ink that not only works great on paper and fabric, but are in wonderful colors.  Today I have created a frame-able Log Cabin quilt block.  Let's get started.

Unity Stamps Doily Picnic
Kelly Craft EZ-De's 1" Rail Fence Set A
Clearsnap Ann Butler's Crafter's Ink
Connie Crystal Crystal Sheet White
Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive
Worldwin Papers Treasures Honeydew

These are the two sets of stamps I used.  I picked the square out of the Doily Set I wanted to use and stamped it in yellow.  I just guessed on center and came close.

 Next I picked the shortest rail and stamped around the square.
I then got the next longer rail and stamped around the images.
I stamped the longest rail for the final layer.  I then trimmed the paper to have a slight edge.  I used a paint brush and the pink ink to edge the "quilt block".
I added color to the Prima blank flowers to give them color to match.  I added a crystal sheet bit for the flower center.  I assembled the flower using Art Glitter adhesive. This was added last to the project.
I mounted it on Worldwin Treasures in Honeydew.  I used the dry paint brush to apply a little ink around the the image.  I also cut the crystal sheet in single strips and attached to the stamped quilt for my "stitching". The flower was added and it is now ready to frame!  I mounted it on SmoothFoam for now and may put it in a scrapbook dimensional frame!
Thanks for checking this out!  Hope you will check out all the projects on Ann's Blog! Until later, happy creating!  Leave me some love in the comment section!

Fun With Dazzle It

Pin It

I have had to opportunity to play with this fun new product from Dazzle-It!  They make fun chains for jewelry making in new trendy colors!  This is what I did with some of the purple chain!  I didn't want to just use it as a chain so I incorporated the chain into the design. I had two different sizes of chain so used the larger gauge for the chain and the smaller gauge for the design.
I had the key and added the chain with some lovely Connie Crystal beads.  I love this chain!  Love the color mixed with  the gold.    Now a closer look!
I love that the key had it's built in "catch" to hold the key.
I used the chain as the connector to the key! I just love the bling!
Hope you liked what I did with Dazzle-It!  I really enjoyed getting to play with this product! Make sure and visit ALL the blogs today!

Art Glitter Stunning Shirt!

Pin It
For our designer blog hop we are sharing a technique we love/project.  This is a great project for a class or just for friends getting together.  I bought this shirt at Christopher & Banks.  It is just a winter shirt,not a holiday shirt.  It had a little bling already going on, but if you know me, a little is NEVER enough!
 I added a lot of Art Glitter ALL over!  Created the look of snow/ice on the roof, you know, like I have had IRL all winter!!!  It really adds a lot.  With the special Designers Dries Clear Fabric Glue it is just fab and will not wash away!

 I really blinged up the bird!  Just love this shirt!
You can do this for any season, any theme and any time of year!  What is great, people can bring their own shirt and make it sparkle!  LOVE Art Glitter!

Happy Creating!

Kelly Crafts EZ De's Quilt Card

Pin It
My first post on my personal blog for Ann Butler's DT!  I love these Hexagon Stamps!  So I used Ann's Ink and covered a full piece of card stock from Worldwin.

 They are so easy to line up!  Love it so much, and I changed colors as I went as well.

 This is the full sheet covered!  I then cut them in 5 1/4 X 4 inch pieces.

 I inked the edges of the base cards.
 Stamped and embossed the one patteren in a couple of colors and then used the Alphabet Stamps to make monograms.  I attached them to the card fronts with a pop dot and then edged them in ink also.  Once everything was attached I had to add some bling from Connie Crystal!

 This makes  lovely gift set for a friend or any family member!  Hope you all have a very creative day!
