Thanks for stopping by.
Advent Day No. 4 and it’s Thursday’s Blue Blog.
So I thought I’d showcase Madonna
and some fabulous embossing glitters.
So off to the cupboard to find Madonna.
Well God bless my daughter Grace, because last time she was home she organised my stencils into folders.
Just take a look at this…
At the front there are mini graphics of all the stencils
in this particular folder,
so I can flick straight to the windows and there they are!
But where Grace’s storage system gets really intelligent is
she even labelled each aperture,
so I know what’s missing and where to put it back!
We have Stencil Folders for different sizes too:
and today, I think we should have a special advent offer,
but read on…
Madonna Stencil it is.
She comes alone or in a set of 5.
Again, there’s a special offer on the stained glass windows:
Attach her to a sheet of Designer paper,
and dab Versamark through the stencil.
Remove the Stained Glass stencil and cover the inky image with the wonderful Ranger glitter embossing powder.
Always shake it up well first,
to distribute the white and glitter equally.
Black and White are December’s product of the month
Let’s just take a side step here and
look at how these glitter powders work.
Usually, glitter powders are quite translucent,
and depend on the colour you apply underneath.
These are opaque – not transparent –
which is great for full festive coverage!
Dee turned me on to these powders; and I must say, they are super.
Back to Madonna.
Here, she’s embossed on a lovely blue patterned paper.
See how the white is just dusted with glitter?
In order to make the embossed Madonna more prominent,
rub ink over her with a make-up sponge.
Faded Jeans on Thursday’s Blue Blog is cool.
Here’s the magic:
The ink stains the paper underneath,
but you can wipe it off the embossed work.
Stain the edges with a blending tool and the same ink,
tear the bottom edge and mount & layer on dark blue.
Thread some ribbon through two holes top left and right.
Make a little tag using the International Christmas Greeting Set.
Attach the tag to the ribbon and tie it in.
Last thing to do? Clean the stencil
and put it back in its little stencil home!
So there we are.
Advent Day 4.
All the special offers during this advent will run until the 31st December, so provided nothing sells out, you have loads of time to consider.
SO there’s a 5 for the price of 4 on the Stained Glass Stencils
Stencil Folders. Let’s see…
How about a 3 for the price of 2 ?
If you’re going to start a meaningful storage system,
you need at least 3 folders!
You can order 3 of any one size online, but if you want 2 of 1 size and 1 of the other, you’ll have to call Jan and do that on the phone.
Have a great day!
