It's Summer Time

Today is the grand finale to the week long hop with the Stampendous DT and the Dreamweaver DT.  If you have missed out this week go over the the Stampendous blog and hop along.

I decided to use the glitter and create a gift box using the sweet sun stencil.

I covered the surface of the box with the double sided sticky paper and applied the orange and yellow glitter.   I rubbed the stencil with a soap to prevent the surface from sticking to the sticky paper. I then sprinkled the ultra-fine orange glitter over the surface.  I then lifted the stencil and sprinkled with the yellow glitter. I then cut it down.  I layered the sun onto the glittered box.


To go with my gift box I created a coordinating card to create a gift set:

 I originally had planned to create charms that would be used on a bracelet.  I Sponged StazOn ink through the stencil onto shrinky dink. I cut circles using circle dies and punched a hole in the top. I then held them with my stylus and heated it up with the heat gun. After it cooled down I added a coat of yellow paint on the back of the charm to make the sun pop.  I tried them on a bracelet which didn't look how I wanted them to.  I was inspired by those little sundresses my daughters used to have with charms dangling along the top half of of the sundress. I paired the charms on my card with the lovely Stampendous Jumbo Cling  border stamped in orange. I added the birthday sentiment from the Stampendous Soaring Sentiments in the bottom corner.

I was having so much fun with the stencils and glitter I decided to create a mini card.


I used glitter to color my scene. I used a series of post-it notes to cover the stencil areas I didn't want to cover with glitter.  I mixed in the micro glitters from Stampendous.  Ice Blue Micro GlitterRoyal Ultra Fine Jewel Glitter and   Silver Micro Glitter.       Sunshine Yellow Micro Glitter, Orange Micro Glitter, Black Micro Glitter.
