Addicted to Stamps & More #118 Holiday

Tuesday, October 21, 2014


Time for another Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge...this time our theme is holiday.  If you are like me it's high time to get started on those Christmas cards!

Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps:


And, up for grabs are three digis...free is good right?  Why don't you play along?

After seeing the most awesomely talented Jennifer McGuire playing with some new watercolors, just had to order some.  I must say the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors are amazing.  Rich gorgeous colors, some metallics...LOVE THESE!

I've stamped my poinsettia image in Versamark and heat embossed it in a sparkly white color.  Next, each area was colored with water and then I dropped in the colors, adding more layers if required. That piece was die cut and placed over a dry embossed piece of green card stock.  Then, I added a die cut sentiment, some sequins and wooden stars.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Ranger Watercolor paper, SU! Always Artichoke and Bravo Burgundy
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps:  Penny Black Festive Florals
All the other stuff:  Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, brush, Big Shot Pro, curved die (?), Lifestyle Crafts Chain set of embossing folders, Ranger Frosted Crystal embossing powder, heat gun, embossing buddy, Studio Calico wood stars, Simon Says Stamp sequins, adhesives

Add a Little Dazzle and Fancy Pants Blog Hop Day 4

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Welcome to another exciting week as we team up with another company. This week we are partnering with Fancy Pants Designs and both teams have been busy creating some amazing projects you are going to love. Time for Day 4 of this week-long blog hop.  Get ready to be inspired by some amazing projects designed with Fancy Pants Designs beautiful patterned paper and accessories as well as  Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets. Let the fun begin!



And here's my project for today:



Couldn't help myself...had to make another one of the ornaments :)  This time, I used a white gift bag, and added some of the Fancy Pants Me-ology paper to dress it up.

Then I die cut some snowflakes in Baby Blue metal.  Here's a close up of the ornament:  



I've used the Baby Blue craft metal to make the background and the bow.  The sweet little deer is made with Brushed Bronze craft metal.  I've added some snow to the trees and then dropped more into the ornament before sealing it up, thus making a snow globe.   Cool hmmm?

Looking through my stash, I happened to find some ribbon that matched the Baby Blue craft metal perfectly, so tied a little bow on the handles of the bag.  

You may indeed see more of these ornaments before Christmas, as I am hooked on making them!

I've simply covered the larger of the pillow boxes in this gorgeous vintage style paper from the Fancy Pants Me-ology Collection Kit.  Tied a bit of ribbon from my stash around it with one of the cool buttons from the Button Set.

Next I die cut a doily in the Brushed Bronze metal and wrapped it around the side of the pillow box, adhering it with Ranger Glossy Accents.  Then, added a couple of little dies cut from the Ephemera Pack and done!

Fun way to package up a little gift for someone special don't you think?

Add a Little Dazzle and Fancy Pants Blog Hop – Day # 2

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Welcome to another exciting week as we team up with another company. This week we are partnering with Fancy Pants Designs and both teams have been busy creating some amazing projects you are going to love. Time for Day 2 of this week-long blog hop.  Get ready to be inspired by some amazing projects designed with Fancy Pants Designs beautiful patterned paper and accessories as well as  Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets. Let the fun begin!


And here's my project for today:


I've used some of the Fancy Pants Me-ology paper to wrap a band around the gift and to die cut some stars. More die cut stars in Add a Little Dazzle Polished Purple and Golden Glimmer were added too.

And, as you can see in this picture...I've used their white corrugate paper to die cut the scene. The backdrop was die cut in Add a Little Dazzle Polished Purple metal, as was the sentiment.  The bow and backdrop for the little house were die cut in Golden Glimmer metal.  Fun hmmm?





This ornament is simply adhered with removable adhesive and lifts off the packaging for the recipient to hang on the tree.  So really...two gifts in one!

Add a Little Dazzle and Fancy Pants Blog Hop – Day # 1

Monday, October 13, 2014

Welcome to another exciting week as we team up with another company. This week we are partnering with Fancy Pants Designs and both teams have been busy creating some amazing projects you are going to love. Join us today as we kick off Day 1 of this week-long blog hop.  Get ready to be inspired by some amazing projects designed with Fancy Pants Designs beautiful patterned paper and accessories as well as  Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets. Let the fun begin!


Here's my first project for the week:


When I saw these cute die cuts from the Fancy Pants Ephemera Pack, I knew I wanted to create the illusion of  a mirror.  So I simply used the back of a piece of Add a Little Dazzle metal sheet behind the oval die cut and added the "shine" die cut.  It was hard to photograph, but I know you get the picture *grin*.  Just in case you aren't aware, all of the Add A Little Dazzle metal sheets are colored on one side and are aluminum on the other.  

I've paired it with some fabulous Fancy Pants Me-ology paper, a sticker from the Sticker Fundamentals Sheet as well as a couple more die cuts from the Ephermera Pack.  A fun and quick card to make, just by using die cuts and paper.
