Sparkle, Sparkle, Sparkle

Welcome to the Club Scrap's Artist Team Blog Hop. If you've arrived here from the very talented Donna's blog you're in the right spot. If not, make sure you start at the beginning to see what Karen has created for you.

Do you wonder where I get many of my ideas for cards, layouts and projects? Well wonder no's the Club Scrap Forums!  It is filled  with amazingly talented crafters. We have monthly challenges that push me to think outside the box, try new techniques or just plain use up my stash (so I can buy more.)
Today I've chosen to show you how much fun the Tools and Stash challenge can be.  This challenge is designed for you dust off those long forgotten tools or embellishments. This month we're challenged to use a liquid form of sparkle.  Stickles being the most obvious, but I wanted to push myself a bit. Don't get me wrong...I have nearly two dozen Stickles colors.
This first creation I used Stickles on the berries just to warm myself up and get going ;-)

Club Scrap papers, tags and ribbon. K&Co. snowflake. Darice embossing folder.
This second beauty's sparkle is created by using a little bit of water on a paint brush and painting on silver PanPastel. A little trick we learned in Retreat from Jac several years ago.

Club Scrap papers, tags, stamps and ribbon. Dazzles stickers.
The next card has liquid sparkle I concocted by mixing several drops of the the metallic silver re-inker with water in a mini-mister, creating my own metallic "glimmer mist". I spritzed the background panel allowing several large drops to form for character.

Club Scrap papers, ribbon, ink and tags. Sequins.

And last but not least my new favorite...Wink of Stella pen!

Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Woven Strands blog hop! If you've arrived here from Lilian's Leaf Studio you are in the right place.   If you've happened upon the hop, please don't miss anything and start with Karen at Club Scrap. When I first received the Woven Strands kit from Club Scrap I immediately thought of our family reunion after seeing the stamps.  The tree and quotes were just screaming "family".  I gathered up my photos, chose the papers that complimented my photos and then found a layout in the Idea Deck that worked with my photos.  Here I chose the 5 of Clubs from Volume V. I left a few elements out and added a few of my own. I really liked the woven circles but they were 12x12, so I just cut them down to meet the 8.5x11 requirement for the directions.  I added one of my favorite quote stamps from Tahiti on the paper strips. Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
