Merry and Bright Friday!

Merry and Bright Banner

It’s been Merry and Bright all this week with some great ideas for holiday projects!  In case you missed them here are MONDAY and WEDNESDAY‘s posts. Next week we’ll be sharing with all of our Laurel Burch images for Christmas! And there will be Prizes, be sure to tune in Monday! Today, we’re sharing awesome cards to add a little, special, sparkle to Christmas.

In addition to our great holiday stamps this year, we released some awesome new essentials. Have a look at some of these wonderful products!

First up is our brand new Twinkle Glitter! This vintage-looking glitter adds a ton of sparkle wherever it goes. We like to add a focal piece on top of our Sticky Panels and then fill the rest of the exposed adhesive with this blingy wonder. The random sizes and shapes of the granules just fill up the space and sparkle and twinkle when you turn the card. Stunning!

Here’s a swatch (you can click on any of these pictures to visit the products or projects on our website) so you can see the grain size and shape variations, it’s really cool.

It comes in a beautiful, big jar, so you have lots to play with!

It was a huge favorite with our Design Team this year. Here you can see a sample by Kristine Reynolds using the Twinkle Glitter behind our beautiful Pinecone Decoration stamp. You can see the extreme level of twinkle this glitter throws out!

Another great new product we released this season was our Ice Pink Embossing EnamelIce Pink joins last year’s Rose Gold and Iced Blue in the Frantage Embossing Enamels line. These pearly metallics are holiday perfect! Photographs cannot do them justice!

This terrific sample from Louise Healy uses the Ice Pink Embossing Enamel over the top of Silver Embossing Paste  and the Ornament Mix stencil to create a fantastic molten magic card! It’s magical! You can find the directions and supplies on our website here!

It’s the 29th Day of Halloween!! Doomsday!!!

31 Days of Halloween 2017 Banner

Halloween is almost here!  😀  And almost over! 😦

We’ve had so much fun this month, sharing our great Halloween products and projects with you.

We have a super special guest today! Candy Colwell shared this FANTASTIC project over on mixed media artist and stamp designer Andy Skinner’s blog the other day, and WOW… we had to contact her right away to ask if we could share here, too!

She showed us that she had even more fantastic projects, and now we’re just a little fangirl over her wonderful work. She’s been using the amazing Andy Skinner stamps, both new and previous, and it’s wonderful!

Take a look at her Doomsday Clock! (you can click on the pictures to be taken to the tutorial)

His arms move to the “time” of your choice! The skulls dangling from chains on his wrists…. the faux finishing… the great greyboard gates and bits from Tando Creative… oooooh… swoon! Candy used a ton of great products to make this fantastic project, including:

Candy was kind enough to point us to another fabulous piece of hers that she did for Andy Skinner’s Blog – (again, clicking the picture will take you to the tutorial).

This is The Bird Brain –
