Wacky Watercooler May Blog Hop – Celebrating the Carry-Overs



Hi All and Welcome to the Wacky Watercooler May Blog Hop! I am honored to be a Member of The Watercooler Wednesday Team! However I am not a Stampin Up demonstrator so with that said, the set I am sharing with you today is called Birthday Bloomsand is in the new catalogue! Any questions about this, please contact your Stampin Up Demonstrator and I am sure they can help you further.

I love this set because it is so versatile! I am going to share with you today three different projects all using this set! In all three cases I have used watercolors to color in the flower. By just changing up the colors, changing the sentiment, adding a piece of trim, a doily, an embossing folder, basic shape cutting dies, we can take a card from a quick simple card to something a bit more elaborate!

Craft Fantastic Time For Some Cardmaking!

Hi All!  I love using my Craft Fantastic supplies for different types of projects, so today we will look at some cards featuring Craft Fantastic's amazing new image sheets: Tea Time and Watercolor Inspiration!

First up this card features images from the Watercolor Inspirations image sheet, Fantastic Glaze & Glue and our Long Glass Rectangles. While this is a really simple card it is really elegant, fun and on trend.
 This next card is again simple although it may not look it! This card is simply a 5x7 decorated card base, a black fancy die cut, our Southwest Tray with a  Large Glass Round, an image from our Tea Time Image Sheet, Fantastic Glaze & Glue and a cute little ribbon bow to finish off this card.
Finally this third card, while also a pretty basic design, also features images from the Tea Time Image Sheet. The look and feel of this card is much different from the one above. This one is more casual, and uses both the Mini Glass Squares, the Xtra Large Glass Squares, and  Fantastic Glaze & Glue.
So what do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know how you like these!
 
Hugs,

Craft Fantastic Bling It On Teachers Gift

Hi All! Today I am bringing you something a little different. I think we as crafters like to be able to use our supplies in many different ways. Today I am using two sizes of jewelers glass (Tiny Glass Rounds and Mini Glass Rounds) , our fabulous new Tiny Glass Bling and our Fantastic Glaze and Glue.

So here is our project. I started out with just a plain unfinished basic wood frame from one of the big box stores.

 I used basic craft acrylic paint in white first as a base coat. Then I took several other assorted colors (light pink, light blue, lavender, yellow and quite literally put a few drops on the end of a paper towel and dabbed it on the frame. This gave me a pretty base. I then let that dry.

Next I took two different sizes of the glass rounds and used a few coats of glitter nail polish on the flat side of the glass and I let that dry.

Next I had some paper flowers and some color sprays. I placed these inside a showbox. If you have never worked with color sprays, they can get away from you rather easily. (I know this because the first time I used them I accidentally got some on one of our dogs. Lets just say our gray and white schnauzer was rather colorful for a bit.)

Spray the flowers inside the box. I then used a heat gun to help along the drying process.

Now you are ready to assemble. I used the Glaze and Glue to attach the flowers to the frame, then used the Glaze and Glue to attach both assorted pieces of bling as well as the jewelers glass on to the flowers.

And there you have it!




Please let me know what you think about this project! Did you like it?
