Stocking Die Ornaments with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Friday, December 15, 2017

My niece asked me if I would come to her school today and help her first grade class make their Christmas Ornaments. I said Sure, and knew right away which die I was going to use with Fun Foam to create their ornaments.

I chose the Christmas Stocking Die of course.

My niece doesn’t know it yet but I called my sister and asked for a picture of my niece when she was in first grade and put it on my samples. I can’t wait to see the look on her face when I show her the samples. Haha I wonder how long it will take her to realize that’s her on the stockings.

This first one is super simple:

All the kids will have to do is glue the top piece on the stocking and brush it with gold glitter glue.
This one is a little bit longer process:

On this one they would have to glue on the sequins as well.

I wonder which one they will pick?

Liquid Color Painting with Glenda Calkins

Share Button

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Today’s technique in my Online Techniques class is the Liquid Color Painting. This fun technique is one I’ve been doing a lot lately but it’s also one needed in the technique book so you don’t forget this fun and easy technique.

I Love the Herald Angels Bundle and decided it would be the perfect set for today’s technique.

I embossed the Angel using Clear Pigment Ink and embossed in Black; then die cut out with the coordinating framelit. You do not need to emboss with this technique but I like to.

I paired the Herald Angels stamp set with the Vintage Notes Stamp Set.

For the Sentiment I stamped onto Whip Cream card stock and punched out with the punching system; same for the Scallop Black punched piece.

Here is the shopping list for today’s card:

Holiday Clips & Keepsake Pocket Die!

Share Button

Saturday, December 9, 2017

I’m on my way back from Phoenix AZ where I attended the Leadership Team meetings with Fun Stampers Journey. While in Phoenix I participated in a Swap. The swap was to be something to do with the A5 Planner.

It had to be for January, February, or March and be either clips, pockets, or pages for the A5 Planner.

I went with February and chose to use the Keepsake Pocket Die and a Valentines Day Theme.

I paired the Holiday Clips stamp set with the Be Mine Bundle because they both had the cute little Cupids in them.

For the Cupid Clip I covered him with Journey Glaze to make it sturdier.

For the Pocket I embossed my cupid and die cut him out with the coordinating die.

The Bubble Gum card stock was embossed with the I Heart Embossing Folder. I wrapped the Whip Cream Twine around and tied a bow and added the Sparkle Heart.

To finish off the pocket I added some Silver Sequins.

The Deal of the Day is a Bundle of Sequins in all Beautiful Colors!

BD-0362 Journey Sequins Bundle

Includes:
Pink World / AC-0112
Blue Skies / AC-0113
Bloom Time / AC-0114
Special Celebrations / AC-0115
