Mint Chocolate Mica Gloss

I think it was Vicky that made these cards a while ago using Mica Gloss inks.
Don't they look like mint chocolate!
You can put Mica Gloss in a spritzer with water and spray for backgrounds.  
You can stamp with it and onto it and off of it.
You can paint with it.
Mica Gloss is a really versatile product that we love.

Handstamped Pencil Pots

While you are sitting at home munching your way through Christmas,
if you manage to empty any of the small Pringles crisp pots then keep them.
You could decorate them and use as pencil pots.
On these ones Lesley stamped onto kraft card and then glued onto the pots,
alternatively you could cover them with stamped or decorated napkins.

Wishing you a Happy Christmas

At the shows I have travelled to this year this has to be the card I was asked about the most.
Lesley made this card for one of our Christmas Cardmaking Weekends using her 
Winter Wonderland stamp set.
Everything is stamped in Vintage Photo Distress ink onto slightly textured card and then with 
a waterbrush the colour has been moved around a little.
It is as simple as that.
Stamping does not have to be complicated and involve lots of colouring if you don't want it to.
It can be easy and uncomplicated or it can be involved and technical - it is entirely up to you.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas
Sarah & Vicky

Mica Gloss Shadow Boxes

Either myself of Vicky made the Kimono shadow box and Lesley made the one with the JudiKins lady.
The kimono is stamped and embossed in black onto black glossy card, it has then been painted with Mica Gloss - alternatively you can colour a sheet of black glossy with Mica Gloss using a brayer and then when dry stamp and emboss on top.
The outer border is a mosaic of images some stamped with Mica Gloss and others are glossy card brayered with Mica Gloss and then stamped with clean stamp, the clean stamp takes away the Mica Gloss leaving the black image like the fan and lanterns.
Then there are panels of Roxs and Micro Glass Beads in between separated with Paper Cords.

My Bucket

If you popped into the shop on Saturday you would have seen me decorating this bucket.
It started life as a metal yellow bucket from our favourite Swedish store.
After a couple of coats of white paint to dull the yellow and act as a primer I was able to cover it with napkins using a watered down pva mixture.
The pink polka dot background is a printed napkin but it is the second layer of the napkin and not the top layer which is a very bright pink.
The Grunge Flowers, stems and leaves I stamped onto plain white napkins using Stazon (you can use Archival and heat set).
I then tore out the images and applied them on to the bucket using the same pva mixture.
You need to let it dry in between layers.
I did put some glitter glue inside some of the flowers and leaves.
I have yet to apply the top coat of Mod Podge but then it should be ready to put a pot plant in and give as a gift.

I know it is a little late for Christmas inspiration this year but I wanted to share these with you as I like them so much.
Lesley created these at Stamperama Flitwick in October.
The snowflakes from our 3D Snowflake set have been embossed in white and then the card has been coloured with distress inks for the different colours.
Remember to buff the embossed areas after colouring so the white shines through clearly.
The same technique has been used on Wish Upon A Snowflake.

Patera Necklace

I believe I used air dry clay for the design inside the Patera.
Black air dry clay rolled onto a Clay Squisher and then I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to get the right shape but you could cut with a knife and then leave to dry.
Once dry I coloured with blue Mica Gloss.
I used a liquid glue inside the Patera like Diamond Glaze or Glossy Accents and then filled in the gap around with micro glass beads.
You could then cover with a glaze or resin to protect it but I have left mine open for texture.

We have patera currently on sale @ 70% off in different shapes, sizes and colours.

Take one Ikea mirror and . . . .

We used the black version of the mirror and then covered with acrylic paint.
The embellishments are made from mini canvases, stamped images behind acrylic,
shrink plastic, Tranz-it, melted embossing powder poured into moulds and a cookie cutter placed over JudiKins Clay Squisher stamps.
Air dry clay used in a mould and then painted with Mica Gloss, stamped Stampbord or EcoArtboard.
The list is endless.
