Glitter Brush Pen for the Win {Scrapbook.com}...




Hey there crafty friends!  I am back today with a new card using a super fun new marker from Scrapbook.com.  This new Glitter Brush Marker is an amazing way to finish off your projects with an awesome shine.  Check out my clean and simple project....


Scrapbook.com and Hero Arts

To create this card, I used Scrapbook.com's Domed Blenders mixed with some Altenew inks to create a blended card panel.  Next, I grabbed a full white card base and die cut the Hero Arts Very Merry Tree Die out of the front. 

Scrapbook.com and Hero Arts

I layered the blended panel behind the tree die cut card base.  I love how that instantly creates a blended tree.  Next, I added Lime Green and Christmas Red Stickles around the front of the tree. 

Scrapbook.com and Hero Arts

Its so hard to see but I used Scrapbook.com's Glitter Brush Marker to line the sentiment only.  I love the shimmer it added.  This new brush marker is amazing.  Lots of glitter in the clear liquid that comes out.  It doesn't discolor your project at all.  Just adds lots of shimmer!

To finish off the card, I used the Make it Jolly set and stamped this adorable sentiment on the inside.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge...


Hi crafty friends!  It's time for a new sketch challenge over at MFT.  Each week, MFT shares a new sketch to play along with.  The Design Team shares inspiration and there are even prizes!  Stop by MFT to learn all about it.

Today's sketch has LOTS of possibilities.  I went the clean and simple route using the new set Panda Pals.....


MFT Sketch Challenge

I grabbed the new Stitched Circle STAX and a piece of plaid paper from Sweet Celebrations Paper Pack to create the 4 circles.  Next, I stamped and die cut those adorable pandas.  I added a simple smile to each bear with a black marker.

Last, I heat embossed a sentiment from the new Smile Maker Stamp set and added it to one of the circles with foam tape.  I added all the circles to a scored card base and finished it off with a tiny heart.

Here is this week's sketch.....

TE Blender Brush Blog Hop...


I am super excited to be joining Taylor and some friends today for a Blender Brush Blog Hop.  If you haven't seen these amazing rainbow blending brushes over at Taylored Expressions, head over and check them out!  They are AMAZING and OH so cute!!



The Blender Brushes are 6" long and have white bristles, which for me is the best part.  You can definitely keep track of the ROYGBIV and use one brush per color.  Taylored Expressions hit the mark there when they came up with this concept.    You an also get a caddy to go along with the brushes.  This keeps them all in one place and they look oh so cute on your desk!


Here is my project for today.  We mostly used blender brushes to.....well blend....but today I am using them to apply ink to a stamp....


Taylored Expressions Blender Brush Hop


To create this card, I pulled out the brushes, a rainbow of ink and my FAVORITE striped background stamp.  Using the brushes, I brushed ink on to each stripe of the stamp until I had the perfect rainbow.  Brushing the ink on gives a totally different look than just applying it with the ink pad.  It blends the ink if there is any overlapping and it gives the overall image a soft brushed look.  


Taylored Expressions Blender Brush Hop

I cut the striped panel down just a little and popped it up on a white card base so the you can see a little of the base on the top and bottom.  Next, I heat embossed a sentiment onto a circle of vellum and added that to my card.  I finished the card off with some clear drops.

I posted this pic on IG awhile back but had to share again.  I love the color in the brushes just as they sit on my desk and almost work like a great piece of craft room decor!

MFT and Friends...


Welcome to December MFT and Friends! It's release day!  Each month MFT releases an amazing assortment of stamps and dies and today they are all available in the MFT Shop.  We are getting together with friends to share one last project or 2 using the goodies from the December Release.  

MFT and Friends

When I saw Panda Pals and Zippy Zebras, I felt like they were made just for the Clean and Simple stamper.  Since I don't usually do a lot of coloring, I may have done a happy dance!  :). 

MFT and Friends

These little guys were so easy to stamp die cut and add just a tiny bit of color to. 

MFT and Friends

I used my Misti to line up the sentiments and then popped up the little zebras with foam tape. Each card front is popped up on a white card using fun foam for that matted dimension.  

MFT and Friends

Stop by the MFT Blog to learn all about today's release.  You will see inspiration from the rest of the Design Team and friends!

Hope you have a great day!

Here is today's card....

Spellbinders

To create this clean and simple card, I used a masking stencil to create the square background.  I added some Glitter Spray to the square after the ink blending.   Next, I did cut one of the kit dies and then cut them in half.  

Spellbinders

I attached the insides of the 2 pieces of the die to the square and then finished the card off with a small sentiment.  So easy!
