Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Monthly Archives: November 2009

I just got this new sheet of stamps from Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps. It’s called Mouser-kins! Aren’t they cute?? I’m part way through the sheet trying out each image, so here’s what I have so far.

All the cards use Prism Paper, Spellbinders dies, Copic markers, Ranger inks and P K Glitz Glitter. I’ve also used the CPS144 sketch and some Mojo Monday sketches as a starting point for the card designs.


Glitter Glitz color is Eggplant


Glitter Glitz color is Lemonade


Glitter Glitz color is Crystal


Glitter Glitz color is Pink

If you like the sheet as much as I do, Heather has it on special through Nov 30, so take advantage and order it now!

So, Stephanie at The Stamps of Life is giving everyone a motivation to use her stamps – a contest! Nothing like the chance to win something free to inspire one’s creativity!

Ok, well that’s not the only thing to inspire. How about a great sketch from Mojo Monday? Yes indeed, coupling those 2 with Prism Paper, what a great combo! The result is below. A cute Christmas card that’s quick and easy with some simple cuts and punches. Imagine the scraps you could use up!?…

Do you remember that song from Styx? Ok, maybe I’m dating myself, but it was such a catchy song in a sort of mechanical way?? 😀

Here’s a simple ATC using all metallic embossing powders from P K Glitz – Gold, Silver Max and Not So Rusted Penny to be exact. All gorgeous colors and too cute for my Mr. Roboto.

How can you go wrong by adding glitter to a page, especially a holiday themed one?

Taking the BasicGrey Challenge this week, I added P K Glitz‘ Glitter Glitz (crystal, NST copper and china red) and E P Lite (copper penny) to my 6×6 recipe page. Can you see it? Sticky Tape and a glue pen worked great for the bottom section and chipboard ornament. The brads were covered with E P Lite for further glitz enhancement. I love my glitz!

I do love my glitter and embossing powder! Here’s a pretty simple card using up scraps (yea!). The leaves are punched from WonderFilm and Glitter Glitz’d. The words are heat embossed. What is WonderFilm? It’s a cool clear adhesive that has incredible sticking power —–> offered from P K Glitz. The glitter AND embossing powder is from P K also. Super because the glitter matches the embossing powder! I just love the sparkle!

I was lucky on 2 occasions recently – one was to go to Kentucky for a long weekend before all the leaves dropped and two, was able to work with the 3 Bugs Autumn line!

Kentucky was beautiful and a little cooler than I was expecting :). The colors of autumn really made up for it though. I just love the oranges, browns and yellows of the season. Not enough to move into a part of the country that has that though!

The Autumn line is really fun! It has all the great colors you expect for Fall plus patterns that match. I love that on many of the papers, the back is solid colored. Also, I like being able to distress it myself if I want. The addition of a cool grayish blue was a nice touch.
