I used glimmer mist after the inking and a spritz of water to make it shimmer and glitter. I cut the circle for a moon and the landscaped stitched die for the silver glittered ground.
Booclose
One last close up of my ghosts. I added bling to the babies eyes. I used a total of 5 dies on this card all Poppystamps except the Open Studio by Memory Box circle. I hope you enjoyed this card, it was really fun to make, I had purple fingers when I was all finished!

Birthday Bear Card

Welcome to my blog! I was a busy girl yesterday I made 14 cards! 12 were using my fuse tool! I am really loving that tool for shaker cards!

Sorry for the shadows, the sun is out and its already 91 degrees here in Northern California! It should get to be about 104! This is the MFTSTAMPS Birthday Bear et along with the Jumbo Peek a Boo Dienamic. I used Copics to color and silver embossed the sentiment.
Have a great Sunday!

Bear Get Well Card -Rubbernecker Stamps

Welcome to my blog! Wow did I have a busy fun filled weekend at the Scrapbook Expo in Santa Clara this past weekend! I made a few samples for Rubbernecker and thought I would share one of them with you today.


I embossed the bear using Ranger fine detail black embossing powder, then I water colored him using my Kuretake zig real brush clean color pens. The background he is on is a die cut rectangle sponged with distress ink. Patterned paper is Basic Grey. The brown cardstock was diecut with mama elephant die.
Here are just a few pictures from my weekend with one of my best friends Sue!
 Spellbinders class....

 We conquered and received 4 buttons to get a medallion lanyard!
I won the first prize in our Kuretake class a color chart for my watercolor markers! Sue won right after me!


Have a great Day! I'm off to see The Band Perry in Murphy's!

Somewhere over the Rainbow..poppystamps

No you are not in Kansas anymore! Welcome to the Poppystamps Blog! Today I have a glittery card for you. What started out as a great easy(or so I thought) idea took me about 5 hours to complete. I will explain why as I go...

I took one of my double sided tape sheets and cut the rainbow die, I then removed one side of the tape to add all colors of the rainbow in order...

Separate glitter
No here is where I made my mistake( hopefully you can avoid it if you give this glittery technique a try). I then started to remove the back side of my glittered rainbow pieces and thought I'd just adhere them down. Well the tape by itself is very flimsy, I suggest adhering your double sided tape to card stock for stability and then cut to glitter.

And here is the finished card! You can see through with just the tape. Next time I will use cardstock backers. :) Have a great Day!

MFT Penquins!



 Just a quick Card post before I head off to my second job!




Using a Memory Box Co stencil,  I created the sunny background for my happy little penguins! The stamps are from My Favorite Things! I am addicted to their stamps and dies! The sentiment is also from them. The stitched landscape dies are from Poppystamps.


Have a Great Day!

I love to make my own backgrounds using Memory Box Stencils and ink! Using a sponge I smooched the ink through the stencil, then turn the stencil and repeat with and additional color.

For the Sentiment I dipped it in versamark then clear embossing powder and heated it then it looks like wet frosting!
