Parchment Candle Card

Here's a little Christmas inspiration for you today using the new Parchment Candle from Stampendous.  I made this Christmas card to have an old time feel and gave it some bling, using the Frantage technique with the embossing around the image. You always have to have a little bling at Christmas!

Here's how my card was made;
1.  Stamp Parchment Candle on white cardstock with black ink, color with colored pencils, cut out and sponge around the edges with Antique Linen ink.
2.  Randomly apply Gold Dot Sparklers and add Glossy Accents to the flame and set aside to dry.
3.  Stick a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Sticky Panels onto a kraft color card and place the image centered on top.
4.  Sprinkle the edges of the Sticky Panels with the Gold Encrusted Jewel Kit and emboss.
5.  Sponge the edges of the card with Antique Linen ink.

Thank a Teacher

Today I'm excited to be sharing my first post as a member of the Rubbernecker Design Team!! I saw them at the Arlington Texas Scrapbook Convention and really liked their wide variety of humorous stamps along with their two part watercolor stamps. So when I saw they had a Design Team Call, I had to give it a go and I'm happy to say they picked me!

For this weeks Challenge, the theme is "Back to School" and I thought a teacher would really enjoy knowing that they are appreciated for all of their hard work. 

I used the Poppy Trio, a two part stamp and the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch Dies to make this fun shaker card. My secret to making shaker cards is to die cut the window frame from two panels of cardstock. That way you glue down one panel onto your card, with out the diecut center.  Next you stamp your sentiment on the center piece and glue it into place. I to this for several reasons, 1. I know the sentiment will be aligned in the window and 2.  I know where to place the foam tape around the window.

 Join in on the challenge on the Rubbernecker Blog by clicking HERE.  They're giving away prizes, first place is a $25.00 gift card and for 2nd place a $10.00 gift card, good to use online at

See a video on how to use the two part stamps HERE.

Road Trip

Here's a sentiment that makes life a little bit better if we just remember to live by it.  It's from the Campground Perfectly Clear Set from Stampendous and it works perfectly with the new WF Travel Perfectly Clear Set.

Here's how I made my card;
1.  Stamp images from the WF Travel Perectly Clear Set, color with colored pencils, cut out and set aside.
2.  Sponge blue and purple inks on a white panel, splatter with water to give a water drop look.
3.  Use Fitted Frames A to die cut a frame in the card.  Use the same die and one size larger to diecut a white frame and glue around the opening.
4.  Glue acetate to cover opening by gluing to the back.
5.  Stamp sentiment on a white panel that is slightly larger than the sponged panel, with black ink and emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
6.  Apply strips of foam tape around the sentiment making sure it won't be seen through the frame.
7.  Put sequins and beads in the foam area and place the window panel on top of the foam.
8.  Glue cut out pieces to the front of the card as shown.

Fabulous Flamingo!

I usually keep my Blog posts to strictly crafting, but to explain my flamingo card, I'll share how it came about with some personal stuff.

This month my husband and I moved our daughter and her husband out of state.  My husband rode in the U-Haul with our son-in-law, Tyler and I drove with my daughter, Melanie.  This was a life changing time for me, having Melanie and Tyler so far away where I can't just jump in the car and see them any time I want, an hour and a half later.  Now it's a two day drive or an expensive flight to a small town airport, since the big airports are a couple of hours away, I'll be saving my pennies! 
On the road, her little dog Okie's in the back 
but she's black and blends into the seats. 

Well in June a few of my friends and I took a road trip to Arlington, Texas to attend the Great American Scrapbook Convention and we had a blast!! It was the first time I was on a girls get away since I've been married (cough, cough 30 years).  We will be doing it again, that's for sure!

Melanie loves flamingos (I have no idea why hahaha)  so when I ran across this 3 part clear flamingo set with a die, I just had to get it!  Now I'll have to come up with a bunch of layouts so I can use it over and over again, since I plan on sending a lot of cards.

4.  Glue the Cream panel to a blue card and inlay the cut out snowflake using Zip Dry Glue.
5.  Place strips of foam tape around the snowflake making sure all of the strips are butted up against each other.
6.  Sprinkle the Glass Glitters and Fragments on the snowflake and set aside.
7.  Glue acetate to the back of the decorative paper panel to cover the snowflake opening. Wrap the decorative paper panel with ribbon and mount to the foam tape.
