My Stickease & Stickers Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us this month!  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley’s Blog.

Giggle Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Sophia My Stickease (retired), Clear Sparkle Flourishes, Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Green Glitter Glitz, and Stardust Glitter Glitz.

The Sophia Paper Pack was one of my favorites.  I still had some left along with the coordinating Stickease so I decided to use them for this challenge.  These are both retired but I also added in some current product.  The most common things I do with My Stickease is add 3D Foam Tape to add dimension, and add more embellishing to them in some way.  You could use brads, ribbon, sparkles, or my recent favorite – Glitter Glitz.  On my layout, I used Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Stardust Glitter Glitz.  I also used Green Glitter Glitz to add some color and sparkle to the scalloped paper at the top of the page.  One more secret was the placement of the Stickease “buttons”… the scallop was a scrap that I had with my papers and it was a tad bit shorter than what I need for the page.  I used these button stickers to fill the gap!

Apple Picking Layout

Apple Picking Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Clementine Paper Packet, CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, CTMH Almond Glitter Glitz, Making Memories paperie greenhouse stickers, and Kaiser Pearls.

One of my goals this month is to use up my Clementine Paper Packet so you will see a bit more with this paper and then I will be done!  For this layout I took two of the zip strips that were cut from the tops of the papers and put them together to make the decorative border in the center.  I used Glitter Glitz to the edges of the scalloped circles to add some sparkle to the page.  I used this sketch from Inspired Blueprints.

Fun to be One Layout

Supplies used: Echo Park Little Girl papers and stickers, Doodlebug Designs stickers, CTMH cardstock (retired), and CTMH Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel.

For the white glittery border strip, I “painted” white cardstock with the CTMH Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel, let dry, and attached.  This is a great way to add glitter!!

Fall/Thanksgiving Layout

I have a Thanksgiving layout to share with you today.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, Olivia Paper Packet (retired), Bronze Glitter Glitz, Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold, Artiste Cricut cartridge, Gold Metallics Marker, and inks (Autumn Terracotta, Olive, & Cocoa).

To get the different colors on the leaves, I first inked in Autumn Terracotta, then using sponge daubers added Olive and Cocoa before stamping.  I love the look!   All the stamps I used are from the Seasons stamp set which is included in the Art Philosophy Collection.  The title is cut from the Artiste cartridge.

October 2012 Technique Blog Hop – Rock ‘n’ Roll Stamping

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the Rock ‘n’ Roll Stamping Technique as shown on page 31 in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.  This is an oldie but a goodie!

This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique.  So if you are starting here, just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Kindred Heart’s Blog.

Supplies used: Die Cuts With a View Just Dreamy Stack, Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Collection Kudos stamp set, and Close to My Heart Red Glitter Glitz.

My rock n roll stamping technique is used for the circle border along the center of the page.  I first inked the image in Cranberry, then rolled in Outdoor Denim before stamping.  The glitter glitz was used to create the dots and the border, how cool is that!

I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme:

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto Judy Faye Garner’s Blog where you will find some additional artwork highlighting this technique!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought of my variation and happy hopping!
