Visit the list of blogs below and leave a comment on each by Nov 27, 2012 at 11:59 PM PST. Each day we will be sharing a brand new list of blogs with brand new projects for you to explore, be inspired by, and create from!
 
 

My first project is a card using a combination of awesome products from our sponsers.

 
 
 
Globecraft Memories Products:
Silver Enamel Powder
Enamel Powder Adhesive
Glastique

Pattern paper: Authentique Festive and Peaceful lines
Punch: Fiskars
Stamp: Hampton Arts
Ink: Clearsnap
Adhesive: Tombow

I first punched some snowflakes with the Fiskars medium Snowflake Punch, then covered them with Globecraft Memories Piccolo Enamel Powder Adhesive and Vintage Silver Enamel Powder.  As each snowflake cooled, I added additional Silver Powder to create 3D snowflakes.  I finished with a light layer of Glastique to make the snowflakes come alive.


I cut the Authentique Festive paper to create my card base, then cut the Peaceful snowflake paper for the center of the card.  The "Peace" Hampton Arts stamp was a perfect mate for the papers and snowflakes and I stamped it with Clearsnap Ink directly onto the Authentique paper. 

To finish, I created an oval mat onto which I added the snowflakes to finish off the card.  To make the snowflakes pop off the oval, I used Tombow Power Tabs to provide some dimension.

My next project is a local craft store find and I knew it would be perfect for this blog hop!



Globecraft Memories Products:
Enamel Powders:  Copper Kettle, Cranberry Wine, Temple Stone, Mossy Glen
Enamel Powder Adhesive
Glastique
Piccolo Card Decor set #2

Pattern paper: Authentique Festive
Adhesive: Tombow
Twine: The Twinery - Cappuchino, Maraschino
Ink: Clearsnap Mix'd Media Inx

I began by adding Cranberry Wine Enamel Powder to the top and bottom of the ornament.  I was very generous because the powder goes a long way and the excess goes right back into the jar.



Once this first layer was heat set, I added a combination of Mossy Glen and Temple Stone to create a metallic look to the edges of this wood ornament.



Once I was finished with these areas, I used Authentique's Festive paper line and traced the outline of the ornament on the back of the paper and then cut it out.  I used Clearsnap's Mix'd Media Inx around the pattern paper before adhering it to the wood base with Tombow Mono Liquid Glue.  I then cut up several additional pattern papers and inked all edges before adhering them across the center of the ornament with Tombow Mono Adhesive Power Bond.



Using Piccolo Card Decor set #2, I coated each piece with Copper Kettle three times, heat setting between each layer, then added some Glastique to the pieces when they cooled.  The Glastique made the elements easy to handle and very pliable.  Since I had the Glastique in my hands, I used the Glastique as an adhesive to adhere the pieces to the ornament.
To finish the ornament, I cut some scraps of red cardstock and adhered them before wrapping some Maraschino Twine around the ornament's base and some Cappucchio Twine around the ornament's top.  Then I twirled both colors together and tied them to the top of the ornament and created the hanger.


 
 
I want to send a big thanks to the sponsors of this hop who generously provided products for this blog hop. 

Thanks for stopping by today and remember to visit each designer's blog for a chance to win some fabulous prizes.
