Glue Dots + CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop

Hello everyone -- welcome to the Glue Dots and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop. You hopped on over here from Kim Rippers blog. Today I wanted to share my new favorite product from Glue Dots -- the Glue Lines products -- but Glue Dots has been around for along time and they have a lot of really great products to choose from. 

I bet you're wondering what I really love about the Glue Lines...right? Well let me tell you -- these 1" lines of glue are perfect to permanently attach items to your paper projects and give them a little bit of dimension. They are pretty easy to use, just tear a piece of the cellophane strip they are packaged on and attach it to the item you want to attach to something else. The BEST part -- the cellophane stays on the Glue Line until you decide you're ready to attach it. This little feature allows you to prepare a large amount of items without having them stick together AND you can move it around on your project until you're sure where you want it to be.  

To make this card I used some Masking Fluid to mask the lines of the spider web and then painted Black and Indigo Acrylic Paint over the paper. Before it was dry I sprinkled some salt (my favorite technique) over the paint. 

When the paint was COMPLETELY dry I used an eraser to remove the masking fluid. For the sentiment, I stamped and embossed the word Boooo! using White Embossing Powder on Vellum and attached it to the bottom of the card. 

Then I used the Glue Lines to attach the Black Glitter Bats. Such an easy card, and the Glue Dots Glue Lines sure make attaching the bats super easy.

Make sure you visit the Glue Dots website to see their entire line of products as well as visit their blog today to see the AMAZING giveaway they are offering you!

Make sure you hop on over to the Glue Dots Blog because they are hosting a giveaway. Also,  be sure to check out the other amazing artists participating in the hop today! You're next stop on this blog hop is Melanie East, and I've included the entire list in case you forget where you are headed! 
THANK you for dropping by and THANK you Glue Dots for letting us try your amazing products!

Midnight Oasis

I've been a bit enamored with how my art translates to bags, tops and scarfs -- and I thought I'd share one of my recent favorites.

I created this canvas for work, and it's one I really love. I know this sounds cliche, but it kinda painted itself and I was only the guide for the brush. 

Just look how lovely it is on this sleeveless top!

And this great tote bag!

Here's a little gift from me for you to use, it's good until October 10th!

Note: $20 Gift Card code can be used multiple times, but only once per transaction. $20 gift cards can not be used towards the purchase of gift boxes or cotton pocket squares. The code FavArtist20 can be used multiple times, but only once per transaction.

I hope you'll take a minute and check out my Vida shop, but in the meantime -- thank you so much for stopping by!

Bella BLVD and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Bella BLVD and CardMaker Magazine blog hop! I'm excited to share my project and quick little video using the AMAZING stash of Illustrated Faith products that Bella BLVD sent me! Also, make sure you hop on over to their blog because they will be hosting a pretty awesome giveaway over there.

I'm not much of the type of person that can write and draw in my Bible, it just doesn't feel right to me. I remember as a kid my Mom caught me with some crayons coloring in hers and she scolded me pretty bad. I guess that's probably why it makes me feel uncomfortable, like I am doing something wrong. If you're like me, you can still use the amazing Illustrated Faith products in a companion journal or even for your card making endeavors.

Today I wanted to share this colorful card I created with the Bella BLVD acrylic paints and the Friendship Die Cut shapes.

 Here's a quick video showing how I created the background. You'll need mixed media paper, water, a non-stick surface and kosher salt.

Once my papers were dry, I trimmed them to 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", rounded the corners and wrapped a piece of olive green ribbon around the center before I attached it to my card blank. Then I added the sprigs of leaves and the flower box -- which was on 1/8" thick foam tape.

The final step was to cut the sentiment from an old hymnal and glue it to the pretty flower square using a glue stick. If you were working in your companion journal you could easily create some found poetry to convey the parts of the Bible that you were thinking about.

You're next stop on the Bella BLVD and CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop is: Becki Adams

Vida Showcase

Today I wanted to share my Vida shop with you -- and also a $20. Gift Code when you order -- and I'm pretty sure you can use it on anything in the shop. The sleeveless tops and scarfs are so beautiful, especially these two!

I think the sleeveless top would be perfect with a super cozy sweater this winter. I can't wait for my scarfs to arrive -- the $20 coupon code expires tomorrow night -- so make sure you take advantage of the savings!

THANK you so much for dropping by, have a wonderful THURSDAY!

So MANY new #stamps, so little time!
