Cute - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Today I have a super cute layout of my daughters pets….they are just so adorable! I used the Flying Unicorn Oct kit papers and added in some Creative Embellishments goodies!
Again I will say that the CE Distressed Text Stamp is my fav and I use it in the background on all of my projects…just adds that little extra touch!
I tucked in a Large Clock Face chippy behind the photo! I left my chippys naked for this layout, the natural color was perfect!
The title chippy is from the Boy Word Set and I just attached it on top of the cluster.
That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the new Oct challenge …. Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page… Take care and happy Scrapping!

Pumpkin Card - Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! Today I have a Build a Card tutorial. It is super simple to make. I wanted to do a pumpkin card and that is where I started. I made two cards..the first is with an older Prima collection and the 2nd with the yummy October Kit from the Flying Unicorn.....Here is the card made with the October kit before we get started.


I cut out one full size pumpkin shape, another piece I cut smaller and the top piece is the oval one. When the 3 go together it makes up the pumpkin. I did not have a template I just free cut it with scissors. I added some distress ink to all of the edges for depth.


Add some cardboard behind the two smaller pieces.


Cut two pieces for the background of the card, the top layer about a ½ inch smaller, Ink those edges too! I also inked up all of the Creative Embellishments chippys with the distress ink.

Glue the background layers together and add some faux stitch stamping.

Glue the pumpkin together and add the same stamping on the layer edges.

I added some burlap string to the bottom of the card and just attached with a stapler.

Attach the pumpkin to the card leaving some of the burlap string showing. Start to add some embellishments. I added flowers, chip board pieces, string, sequins and a few other things!



Here are my finished cards. I also added in some Shimmerz Goldie Lox mist and drops of Good As Gold Inklingz to finish the cards off. Well that is it, that is my pumpkin cards!

Off The Page Pumpkin - Shimmerz and the Flying Unicorn Oct Kit.

Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have a fun Off the Page Pumpkin from my Flying Unicron Oct kit. The pumpkin is paper mache and actually quite big! First I painted it white with gesso. Next I added some crackle paste and let that dry over night. Time to add some soft pastel colors with some yummy Shimmerz!
I used 3 Sprtiz colors to cover my pumpkin..starting with the lightest to the darkest. After each coat I sprayed water on it to soften the colors as I wanted my finished project to be soft pastel colors. First up was one of my favs…….Tuscan Sun Spritz.
I added some Terra Cotta and than 4 Leaf Clover Spritz…drying between each color with a heat tool. I just love how when it seeps into the cracks and shows slightly darker.
My finishing touches are drops of Brass Knuckles and Sun Kissed Inklingz with some touches of Gesso on the embellishments.
On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a sample for FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration and watch out for giveaways and links to the NEW Shimmerz Shortz videos! Take care and happy Scrapping!

terrifying - Creative Embellishments Oct Challenge

Hi everyone! A new monthly challenge revealed on the Creative Embellishments Blog today! Always fun to create holiday layouts…I had to get super creative with this one. No Halloween papers and no Halloween photos…what to do. So I used some older 13 ARTS papers and edited a photo of my daughter to make her into a zombie, hehe.   
I love the new Skull Flourish Corner Set…would be awesome on any project! The twist is to use a piece of metal and I added a metal ring in the cluster.
I added some Distressed Text Stamping in the background and my title chippy is from the Scary Word Set. All of the chippys are just finished with a coat of black gesso.
Don’t forget to join in this months challenge for your chance to win a store gift certificate!  Check out the store for all the NEW Halloween chippys! Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page. Take care and happy Scrapping!
