Tutorial | Coloring with Alcohol Markers and Digital Delights by Louby Loo


Hi everyone! I want to share with you a coloring tutorial that I did using Spectrum Noir and Digital Delights Digis. I love Wendy's images and find that there are a multitude of ways to color them. We have explored several different coloring options over the last few tutorials. Finally we take on Alcohol Markers. I love the blending and layering that can be achieved with Alcohol Markers! I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Weekly Challenge | Seize the Daisy!

It's time for a new challenge with Digital Delights by Louby Loo! This week at Delightful Challenges our challenge is Seize the Daisy! Daisies are my favorite and it gave me the opportunity to use the new bling I had purchased at convention. The crystals were really clear and I colored them yellow with my Spectrum Noir to become my flower centers! I sprinkled some aged white embossing powder along the edges of the card and heat set them for a fun texture on the card. ~I hope you enjoy my card! Thank you for stopping by!

Fairy in a Bubble


  Happy Wednesday everyone! Today on the Globecraft & Piccolo Blog I share this Fairy in a Bubble featuring the Small Traditional Oval Bubble Frame Kit! I love the vintage feel of these frames--it reminds me of the photos in my grandmother's house. Today I've used a free vintage fairy download and printed it on card stock to the 3×5" size 4 times. Next I trimmed out "layers" of my image so that I could stack the layers with foam in between  to make my image dimensional. I added a small butterfly charm (I removed the hanging loop) embossed with Bahama Aqua to the stack under the globe. I adhered my layered image to the back of the Traditional Oval Bubble Frame. As I was using the frame sideways, I removed the photo stand backing so that I could display on a shelf with a floral frog.
I next used the bottom ring and layered enamel powder using the enamel powder adhesive to adhere the powder to the chipboard. I began with Bahama Aqua and then added Mermaid Tears. Next I used a music background stamp with the adhesive fluid and Deep Blue Sky. I then used the middle ring and layered Poodle Skirt and Aged Pink.
To Adhere the layers I used a white heavy body glue and held it closed with clothes pins until dry. I added my little metal roses to the base to echo the roses in the fairies hair. I edged around the large frame with a black marker to finish off the edge of the chipboard.

  I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by today!

A Jazzy Note for You!



  Happy Wednesday everyone! Today on the Globecraft and Piccolo Blog I share a "note" card to send to your friend to "jazz" up their day! I love the way emboss powders make simple card stock look like rich metal! I stamped my background notes using the Enamel Powder adhesive with Micro White powder on Kraft card stock. I then layered on colors of chalk to get the colored background. Next I tore the edges and curled them a bit and added more adhesive to dip the edges in my favorite Victorian Bronze!
I die cut 2 alto saxophones...I used one as a template for applying the shadow and highlight with chalk on the center of my card. I "double dipped" the embossing on the 2nd one. First I applied the adhesive, sprinkled Victorian Bronze and then heat set. Next I applied another layer of adhesive, sprinkled with Gilded Rose and heat set. Finally I embossed an ATC Bubble Background with Victorian Bronze and trimmed apart sections to float around my Saxophone.
I mounted this on a piece of black card stock to enhance my metal embossing...the inside of the note will have a slip of white paper to make writing with normal utensils easier! 

  I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by today!

Dropping by to say "Hi!"


 Happy Tuesday everyone! Today on the Cheery Lynn Blog I share a card to say "HI!". I layered the scallop and classic circle stackers to create a card base I cut and shaped flowers from a coordinating paper pack to created the small gardenia's, sweet Christine's  and the small tea rose. Pearl beads and prills create fantastic centers for these flowers. I glued down blue card stock to a thin piece of card board to die cut the letters "h" and "i"--I outlined the letters with black. I touched the edges of the blooms with Wink of Stella and coated the letters. I completed the card with pen-stitching around the card.

Blingy Steampunk Train Card

  Happy Wednesday everyone! Today on the Globecraft and Piccolo Blog I share blingy steampunk card. I layered a background that was stamped and embossed with detail copper. The edges were distressed and embossed. Vintage black was also sprinkled in the bottom corner and embossed. 
The gears were embossed with detail black, detail copper and vintage black...the open gears were stamped with a speckle stamp while still molten. The solid gear was stamped with a detailed steam train stamp. Bling was added to the open gears by cutting apart the Bling on a Roll and gluing it down individually along the curve of the gear.
The final focal element is created by melting a pile of ultra thick black emboss powder and mixing in detail copper on a craft sheet. I stamped the steam train image into the molten powder. If you attempt this and do not like how it looks remember you can remelt it and start again! After the stamped emboss powder dries, use the scraper tool to gently lift it off the craft sheet.

Hunter's Sunset


  Happy Wednesday everyone! Today on the Globecraft and Piccolo Blog I present a few new release products paired with the Piccolo Powders and 3D Enamel Gels! There are a few frame bubble kits in the most recent release and they are great for stand alone art in your surroundings--they cone with an easel back that can be glued on to provide support for your project.  They have generous mats to make a lush layered home decor accent! 
I began by marking where the opening would be on the base chipboard and brushing a coat of glastique in the oval. The glastique seals the chipboard and in this case allowed me to create a sunset scene with the gels. With a rainbow of gels I created a sunset background in a field by brushing on color in layers.  Once satisfied with the effect I set it aside to dry. 
I next embossed the elements for my scene with black detail emboss powder and Vintage Black. The layers were embossed with Brownstone, Vintage Black and Vintage Silver. Before laying each element I edged then with Black Marker to finish off the edge of the chipboard.


  I hope you enjoyed my project! Thank you for stopping by today!
