Elements of Excitement!

Pinecone Ornament by Kristine Reynolds

This week we’re celebrating those cool Elements that make our holiday cards so exciting. And we’re offering a special shout out to our newest family favorite, Twinkle Glitter!

Fran’s Glitzy Adhesive Technique and Encrusted Adhesive Technique are perfect for making a glittering area of bling behind any focal point layer. They’re super easy to do! Just apply a layer of our Sticky Panels, adhere your focal point on the adhesive area, then sprinkle your favorite blings on the remaining, exposed adhesive… Voila!! If you use embossing powder, you’ll want to heat it, but you can mix embossing enamels, glitters, mica, color fragments, glass glitter and more for some ultimate excitement.  There are sooo many looks you can achieve!

 

As you can see, the Design Team has lots to share with you today!! Click below to see more of their great projects, some of them have more than one, because they posted on Wednesday as well! Leave everyone some love so we can enter you in the drawing to win a jar of Twinkle Glitter. (contest details are HERE from Monday).  AND, in case this doesn’t give you enough to work on this weekend, here are some videos of Fran demonstrating this incredibly fun and easy technique.

Wonderful Winter Snowflakes and Friends

winter-friends-title

Today we are letting you in on a little-known secret about our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets. Look for an orange triangle in the upper right corner of the packaging and you will find a free template inside! Yep, the template complements the stamp set amazingly and our Winter Friends are complete with a snowflake stencil.

Here are two projects shared earlier this week that took advantage of the template and created a great backdrop for the Winter Friend characters.

Winter Friends by Janelle Stollfus

There are so many great snowflakes in the template you may think we have it covered, but there is a flurry of options on our website in our Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s Metal Stencils that are terrific for all your winter projects! Be sure to visit our website to see projects using them, there is a project waiting for you to try!
