Pennywise Arts Blog Hop

Thanks for hopping along on our Pennywise Arts community blog hop! If you happened to stumble upon us the blog hop starts here: Pennywise Arts. You should have reached my blog from Bridget's blog the next stop is Evelyn's blog. There will be a fabulous prize drawing for a blog hopper that leaves a comment on every blog entry of the hop. So make sure you let us know you were here!

My card was made with my favorite colors pink and brown. I stamped the butterflies with brown ink then covered them with o'so sticky powder. Next I heated the o'so sticky powder with an embossing gun and sprinkled on clear mini micro beads. I did the same to the center of the flowers. The border on the card was done with o'so sticky tape and brown micro beads. Using micro beads adds a wonderful touch to any project. I wish my pictures came out better; I am still working on that. Click on the picture to enlarge.

The Pennywise Arts Yahoo group is a community of stamper/crafters from all over the world that share a passion for art, swaps, micro beads and friendship. Established in 2003 we have grown deep roots and lasting relationships. We welcome new members and look forward to meeting you! Our blog hop is a special event to help us get to know one another. We hope you'll hop on board!!

Instructions for heated beads technique:

1. Stamp an image with embossing ink, versamark or your favorite colored pigment ink.

2. Sprinkle o'so sticky powder over the inked image and tap off the excess.

3. Heat the image just until the powder turns to liguid- it will be shiny.

Shoebox party in Kingwood!

My craft group here in Kingwood had a shoebox party.
We had 7 ladies participating. We all brought a completed project and kits to share with everyone. Here are my finished projects. I am still learning to post the pictures, so I am not sure how this will post.
The pictures take up 2 post, so scroll down to see all of the projects.
