Nuvo Glitter Paste - 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store

Happy Hello!!! I have a gorgeous card to share today for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. I have been doing a little playing with the Nuvo glitter paste - it is so stunning in person! It's really hard to capture it on camera but I did my best.


I started off by stamping my flower from Concord & 9th stamp You Are Here. I colored it with my copics markers and cut it out with my Scan N Cut machine. This flower would look stunning in any color! 



Next I started on my background. I adhered a striped stencil down to my cardstock with some painters tape so it doesn't slide out of place. Using a small spatula I started to spread a layer of the Nuvo Glitter paste onto my project. Once I was satisfied with the amount of glitter paste on my project, I removed the stencil and quickly washed off my spatula and stencil. Don't let it sit because the glitter  will stick to the stencil. 

I let the background sit for a few hours (actually 5 hours by the time I was able to get back to it lol) ... and started to put my project together.  My base is 5" x 5" so I trimmed the stencil piece down to 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" so there was a little border of white. I love how this glitter paste looks on the dark cardstock. It's almost iridescent! In the picture above, you can actually see the blue. I stamped my sentiment on a small strip of white cardstock, lined everything up and adhered together.

Bookmarks - The Greeting Farm

Happy Hello and Good Morning! I almost forgot to share these! My daughter and her friend asked for a new bookmark  (before school ended) so I created these fun ones! They were really quick to put together. I laminated both of them so they didn't get ruined from wear and tear.

Unfortunately, these were last minute creations so I do not have a complete supply list for you.



The background I created with my distress inks. My images I colored up with my copics and cut out with the Scan n Cut to add to the bookmark before laminating them. I used A Lil' Magic stamp set and Little Fairies stamp both from The Greeting Farm.

Thanks so much and Happy Monday!

Challenge #9 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store

It's time for a new monthly challenge over at 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store! 

Our Challenge is ....
ANYTHING GOES!
Please use something from the store for your chance to win $20.00 store credit!

Visit the 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store Challenge blog to find out the winners from the previous challenge.

The Challenge will end July 11, 2017 at 12pm EST so be sure to link your entry on the challenge page.

For my challenge project today I created a card with The Greeting Farm and created my won background.

I cut out a circle with a circle die out of acetate. Instead of using the circle I used the negative piece. I laid that over my card and then placed my Tim Holtz dotted background stencil over the top of the negative piece. Using my distress ink, I applied a layer of ink. I continued this process around my card, cleaning the stencil in between each so I don't mix colors.

For my sentiment, I used Happy Birthday from the All Cats set from Gerda Steiner Designs. I heat embossing it onto black cardstock using Nuvo White Embossing powder.

 Once my image was colored up, I cut it out with my Scan n Cut machine and popped it up with foam squares.

Big Wheels - C.C. Designs

Happy Hello! Welcome to Tuesday!! I'm really having fun making my own backgrounds lately.

For this card, I created my own stencil. I took the Starburst Plate from Sugar Pea Designs and cut it out on acetate to create a stencil. I placed the acetate on top of my cardstock and used some painters tape to hold it in place.

Then using my Fossilized Amber Distress Ink Oxide, I gently went around the entire card to create this fun burst! I removed the stencil and lightly applied some more ink to the middle of the burst. Once I was satisfied with the background, I trimmed it down to 4" x 5 1/4" and attached it to a black piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Before I do anything else, I want to stamp my sentiment in the top corner using Memento Black Tuxedo Ink.

With my copic markers, I colored up this fun little guy riding his big wheel. I then cut him out with my Scan n Cut and attached him to the middle of my card with foam squares. To finish off the card, I added a few drops of  Nuvo Crystal Morning Dew Drops.

Gerda Steiner Designs All Cats!

Happy Hello Everyone and welcome to Monday!! I have a super fun card to share today guest designing for Gerda Steiner Designs.

I love the All Cats set and it went perfectly with my new pawprint stencil! This card is super easy to make but has so much character! 
I matched some distress ink with my cardstock and applied that to my card with the stencil. I cut out my sentiment strip with my flag die and added the fun "Stay Pawsitive" sentiment from the All Cats stamp set.

This cat image I thought was just hilarious so I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, colored it with my copics and cut it out with my Scan N Cut machine. I attached my card base and stenciled background together, added the sentiment strip and used foam squares to pop up my grumpy kitty. To finish it off I used some matching Nuvo Crystal drops.

Isn't this release amazing!? I say that all the time but it's true every time I say it ! 

I have this fabulous card to show you today using the new Fancy Florals and Bugs and Kisses from the May release. I thought they made perfect combo! I even have a process video for you so be sure to keep scrolling through to check it out! 

For this card, I randomly stamped the three individual flowers from Fancy Florals with Simon Says Stamp Clear ink all around my paper. I also added some leaves and a couple bees from the Bugs and Kisses set just to fill some spots. I then added my Nuvo white embossing powder onto all my stamped images and heat embossed it.
Once that was cooled, I applied some distress ink oxides to my background. I love the oxides because they blend so smoothly together. I dabbled some water splatters onto my distressed background to finish that part of the card off. 


The sentiment I just simply stamped onto my strip of white cardstock. My card base (black) is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  Once I had everything glued together I added a few sequins and Nuvo crystal drops. This was such a fun card to create!

I immediately knew I wanted to make another card with my acetate for t his one. I used my dies and cut out a bottom for my sand ...and top for the clouds and adhered straight to the acetate. On the inside I applied some water-like patterened paper. Oh my gosh this turned out awesome! The fox I colored up with my copic markers and cut out with my Scan n Cut.. I definitely love this machine and it was totally worth the money spent lol ..
