Our designers have so many choices with this theme, baby, wedding, rain...You'll definitely want to see what we come up with each week of April! Today I have a Bridal Shower card to share with you that is beautifully glittery and because of all of this wonderful glitter, I could only get a good picture of it outside.  Here is how it was made;

1. Use the double glitter technique (click HERE for video tutorial)  to glitter the LJ924 Bride stencil using Crystal Micro Glitter on the bride and Sea Green Ultra Fine Jewel Glitter for the background on Double Sided Mounting Paper.
2.  Mount this piece to a white card along with two strips of glittered paper to the right side.
3.  Stamp sentiment from the Loving Memories Perfectly Clear Set in London Fog Memento ink on white paper, pop up on card and add rhinestones.

Stencils and Stamps


I'm so happy that Stampendous! is now the proud owner of Dreamweaver Stencils because they work perfectly together.  Here is how my card was made.
1.  The background paper was made using the Creative Palette Rectangles (click to view product and video tutorial available) and acrylic paints in pink, white and copper.  While you have all your supplies out, be sure to make extra bacgrounds for future use! I primarily make cards and the Creative Palette Rectangles is my favorite Creative Palette out of the three because it is small and in my mind easier to use for my smaller panels.
2.  Once dry the circles are painted with white acrylic paint and stamped randomly. Let dry.
3.  Using Dreamweaver Stencils Matte Black Embossing Paste, paste emboss Open Butterfly Stencil, remove stencil and while wet sprinkle with Black Micro Glitter and let dry.
4.  Randomly stamp Carte Postale on panel with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
5.  Stamp Penned Thank You with Versamark ink and emboss with Twilight embossing powder.
3.  Add pink rhinestones to the center of the butterfly and you are done!

Thank you for stopping by :)

Rain Dance


Today's card, uses the Creative Palette from Stampendous! to make the background, using Radiant Neon re-inkers.  This process was so much fun and the possibilities are endless!!  Here is how it was made.

1.  The background paper was made using the Creative Palette Rectangles.  Radiant Neon reinkers in Electric Pink and Electric Purple were squeezed onto the Palette and brayered.  The squares were stamped into it without ink to remove the ink from the Palette to get the lighter shade.  Then white cardstock was placed on the Palette and rubbed before removed to dry.
2.  Stamp Rain Dance from Stampendous onto paper with Memento ink and apply Dot Sparklers to the umbrella.
3.  Sprinkle the upper left corner with Spoonful of Gold Dust from Stampendous, and heat from underneath so it doesn't blow away.
4.  Layer onto black paper and mount to a gold card.

Baby Blocks


Welcome to the Stampendous-Dreamweaver Stencils April challenge of "Showers to Showers!" Our designers have so many choices with this theme, baby, wedding, rain...You'll definitely want to see what we come up with each week of April!

Here is how my card was made.
1.  The background was made using the double glitter technique by rubbing the back of LX7026 Chevron Stencil with Coconut Soap then placing it on Double Sided Mounting Paper.  Sprinkle with China Blue Micro Glitter, rub in with your finger, turn it upside down to shake the glitter off on scratch paper so you can pour it back into the jar.   Remove the stencil while holding it upside down then sprinkle with Crystal Micro Glitter, shake off and mount to a green panel. Set aside.  Here is a video to show how to do this technique, Double Glitter Technique.
2.  Stamp Baby Blocks on white with Tuxedo Black Memento and color with pencils.  Layer onto green and blue papers.  Set aside.
3.  Die cut letters with Dreamweaver Stencils DD005 Duo Alphabet Dies from green paper.
4.  Tie May Arts blue ribbon around the top of the background paper and glue to a white card and add button.
5.  Glue pieces to card as shown.
