Stampers with Attitude Bling it Up Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop!! The Stampers with Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  This month the Stampers with Attitude are going to be showcasing artwork which has been blinged  up (Is that a word?  In the paper crafting world it is!) You should see some awesome flashy artwork on this hop. Keep in mind that a blog hop is just a big circle so if you have just come from KIMBERLY MOSS ~ Kim’s Paper Crafts, then you are in the right spot and you will find your next blog at the bottom of this post.

For my Bling it Up I designed a card with a lot of shimmer and sparkle.

SWAA - Bling it up

Here is the inside of the card.

SWAA - Bling it up inside

For this card I trimmed a 1/2 inch off the bottom of the card which allowed for the peak-a-boo look to the inside of the card.  I also could not resits trying out our new ShinHan markers to color the balloons. I love the way they color – they are really AWESOME!!!  They will be available August 1st when the new Annual Inspirations goes live.

The supplies I used on this card are:

  • Daisy White cardstock 1385
  • Lollydoodle paper pack X7193B **
  • Pink Glitter paper Z1922
  • Pink Glitter Gems   Z1807
  • Hollyhock Zipper Lace Z1826 **
  • Joyful Birthdays B1419
  • Balloons M1037
  • Hollyhock Ink pad Z2128
  • Hollyhock cardstock 1246

** denotes retiring items so be sure you order these before they are retired on July 31st.

Countdown to Spring/Summer Idea Book ~ 4

Welcome back to my countdown to the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  We are only 4 days away until you can order the new products.

Today I will be showcasing two new products Lagoon Zipper Lace Z1917 and White Marquee Enamel Shapes Z1961.

Lagoon Zipper Lace White Marquee Enamel Shapes

I have been doing a one page scrapbook page representing each of my son’s first 12  months.  On each month I choose one 5 X 7 photo and highlight the milestones from that month.  Since I have started designing my layouts and having my photos printed using Studio J, my layouts are finished before I get my photos.  I really like doing it this way so when I am designing the layout if I need a photo that is smaller or larger then I just pick the size using the no limits layout in Studio J.  Before I would pick mostly 4 X 6 photos and then realize I wanted it in a different size like 3 x 3 or 2 x 2 and the photo would not work so I would have to have it reprinted anyway.  Now I don’t waste with printing photos I don’t use.

11 months using zipper lace

With this layout I used several paper packs – Later Sk8er, Surfs Up, Footloose and Chantilly.  I also used the stamp set One-Way Border stamp set C1561.  To create the splatter I used Lagoon, Sweet Leaf and Outdoor Denim re-inkers.  I used the techniques that are described at the end of the Artbooking Made Easy video ~ Love, Love, Love which I posted on my blog here.  Instead of using a dauber I used Q-tips so the dots could be smaller and then use a little flick to the Q-tip which was heavily soaked to create the smaller splatters.

Happy Crafting!
