Festive Friday #2

It's Festive Friday time again.  I am off to CHA today.  I am very excited....  Why you may ask???  Sakura Hobby Craft is bring out a new line of product with my name on it...  OMG...  don't wake me..  I like my dream life...  So today I had to show off a little of my new line..
Here is what I did and what supplies I used:
Supplies:
Terri Sproul Mixers - Jewel Effect - Ice Blue Pearl
3-D Crystal Lacquer
Creative Paperclay®
Dew Drops - Aqua Marine
Ribbon
Merry Chirstmas Stamps from Michael Strong
Fiber
snowflake cookie cutter
Palette Hybrid Inkpad - New Canvas - Stewart Superior
Snowflake stamp
Miracle tape - this is the best stuff for ribbon and more...

Directions:
1)  roll out Creative Paperclay® to about 1/4" thick.  press snowflake cookie cutter shape into the clay m(remember to add you hole while clay is still wet).  Set aside to dry...
2)  cut black cardstock to 4/14" x 5 1/2" - Mix "Ice Blue Pearl" with Crystal Lacquer.  Paint onto black cardstock.  let sit for a few minute for the lacquer to dry.  then ink up your snowflake stamp with "New Canvas" ink and stamp onto background...
3  Stamp "Merry Christmas" onto light blue ribbon.  Adhere ribbon to bottom of card with my Miracle tape.
4)  When you Creative Paperclay® snowflake is dry - sand if needed...  Then I mixed more of my "Ice Blue Pearl" mixers into more Crystal Lacquer and painted the snowflake..  Add a few Dew Drop while the lacquer is still wet.  Works great as an adhesive...  add some fiber and I am done...

I like this project because they get a small gift with the card.  Great for  a teacher or neighbor..

Now it's time for you to hop on over to Leslie Blog..  the rest of the list is here - just in case you get lost...

Festive Friday #1

WOW, what a year, 2011 has gone away and now we are starting over....  It's a brand new year and a great time to start making those Christmas Cards - YES, I did say Christmas Cards...  I do this Festive Friday Christmas Hop all during the year.  On the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month (except Dec) I will host this Festive Friday Blog hop.  Where I hope to inspire you to make some of your Christmas Card early.  I know its seem crazy, but I really love having all different Christmas Cards for the first time ever...  So I have to do it again.
here is my first card of the year.
Supplies:
Stamp: "There is No place like Home"- Viva Las Vegastamps!
Creative Paperclay - you can purchase at Viva Las Vegastamps!
Mold from Articus Studio
Embossing Plate:  Tim Holtz
ribbon
Mica Color "Vintage" UsArtQuest 
Memories Dye Ink " Sepia" - Stewart Superior
Miracle tape from Viva Las Vegastamps! - Can't live without this stuff - works so good on ribbons. 

I just got a new set of Mica color from UsArtQuest called "Vintage" so I had to play with them.  Adore the colors of this palette.    First I embossed the tree image on top Cream Cardstock.  then I just started to paint.  I used the green color on the tree tops and the brown color on the trunks, then I added some of the blue around the edges.  LOVE.....
I had this Creative Paperclay Pointesseta  and paint again using the Mica Color from UsArtQuest.
Stamp "There is no place like Home" with my Memories Dye ink directly on the cardstock.  Added the ribbon with my Miracle tape.  the only way to glue down a ribbon.

Here is the rest of the team - stop by and see their  Christmas Cards too.  Your next stop is Leslie's Blog. 

Hope you leave me some love.....
