FLLC Glass Candle Holders & How To ( Reloaded)

*ETA* For some reason this post wasn't showing the pictures. I deleted it and reposted it I hope it works now:) Sorry for the double post for those who are google reader.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! Yesterday I stamped on a mug and thought to myself this background would be so cool on glass. So I ran to Walmart and found these cute glass candle holders the triangle one was .97 cents the rounded square one was $1.23. I used stazon to stamp the background. I had a lot of questions and emails asking how I stamped on the mug so I took a picture to show you. I hope that helps! Just remember to apply a lot of pressure so the ink makes good contact. If you are using craft ink the stamp will slide and will get muddy looking if you press to hard. With the Stazon ink on the glass you need to work super fast because the ink dries fast. I cleaned my stamp with hot water and soap between stamping each side.
You can find this awesome Damask background stamp at Flourishes LLC

WT153 FLLC Damask Mug

Hi there! Today I wanted to try this idea I had for the new Damask background stamp from FLLC. I inked up the stamp with craft white ink since it's not mounted it's a clear stamp I laid it on the mug and slowly applied pressure. The design goes right up to the handle on either side. I used a sponge and white craft ink to sponge the top and bottom edge. I also sponged the handle. Fill it with your favorite treat. This is for decorative uses only!! I have no idea if you can wash it. I do know you can dust it:)

New KSS Stamps & Leslie's Challenge?

Hi there! Yesterday was a fun mail day. I had several new stamps waiting to be inked up and loved:) I was so excited to play with the new 3-Step Adornment set from Kitchen Sink Stamps.
Leslie made the most gorgeous card creating a beautiful background from scratch, you know paper, ink and stamps. Leslie asked if anyone would be interested in doing that type thing as a challenge. I got so excited and made this journal. I used vanilla cardstock and stamped the French Script in black. I used one of the stamps from Looks Like Spring and Wonderful Wings. I stamped all kinds of smaller stamps in Choc. Chip, Bravo,Saffron. For the tassel I used Saffron, Cranberry and Bravo. I cut it out and attached it with foam tape. Then I disstress the heck out it using several different disstress inks. Finally I tore a piece of paper and sponged along the torn edge to make the slight pattern. This was a blast to make I hope you like it!
Have a great day:)

Fantasy Floral Surprise! Are U Ready? ( Tutorial)

Hi there! What a exciting day Flourishes LLC will be releasing it's first background stamps! I have a little sneak peek for you as well as a new use for the large flower in the Fantasy Floral Garden Set. Are you ready?

1. Start by stamping the large flower with Jet Black Stazon ink (you will need four flowers).

2. Cut,trim and color the flowers as shown. I used Stampin' Up! Marker's ( Mellow Moss, Cameo Coral). I used a black sharpie to go around the edges and to make the tips darker.

3. Punch a circle out of black cardstock using the 1-1/4" punch. ( Stampin' Up! )

4. Arrange the four flowers as shown and adhere to the black circle. * See the finished card below for the placement of the flowers* Sorry I forgot to put it in the picture!
5. Use a decorative brad for the center.

The background for this card was made using the " New" Positive and Negative Damask Background stamps from Flourishes LLC. I Just love these backgrounds! I softened the edges with a sponge and cameo ink. So what did the finished card look like?

There's more! the sentiment is new also. I love the font and the fact it's larger than all other Flourishes words! Can you stand it? I'm trying hard to keep it together at this point to show you the compianion gable box I made with the card to match.

Now adjust your eyes...a different color and design same background stamp! for this card. I stamped both the positive and negative and punched them using the 1-1/4 square punch for the background. Layered on black cardstock.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I hope you will continue to visit my blog and find inspiration.
