I haven fallen in LOVE with the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint! I have used it for snowballs, these cute cotton balls, and even popcorn! It is a true treat watching it puff up from the heat gun!

TIP: Use a liberal amount on your image; then gradually get closer to the wet puff paint. If you are too close at first, it will move around. Starting further away lets it set some as you move closer in. But, not too close, I have had mine yellow from getting too hot too! You can go back over it if needed to make it puffier. I didn’t put enough on the first project and I went back and added more. Worked like a charm!

To make this card, I stamped the milk can onto the Mercury Glass Acetate sheet with StazOn and fussy cut it out. I then stamped the foliage and the sentiment onto my Crumb Cake piece of card stock Next, I colored the images with the Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella Clear. I distressed the edges of the paper with the edge of my scissors and then followed that with a Early Espresso sponge. The base of the card was stamped with the Birch Background and Crumb Cake ink. I wanted it to be subtle so I stamped off onto my grid paper first, then the Whisper White Thick.

I finished the card off withsome Copper Trim. I am so ready for fall!

Funky Cupcake


Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone while making a card?  I definitely did with this one!  I love the Pop of Pink DSP and this heart design that is in that pack.  I then used the Sparkle embossing folder.  It reminds me of the old signs in Vegas for some reason.  I went with the bold colors for the cupcake too! Melon Mambo stamped off and full strength.  Then added Rose Red for the little details.I figured I could make the sentiment a geometric shape by just fussy cutting.  What do you think?

I made this for one of my Creative Kits by Mail a few months ago.  I love the colors and how they blend and pop! I used Shimmery White Card Stock

I am trying to get back on track after my double mastectomy, so stamping is slowly coming along.  I plan on having some new exciting projects soon!
