Hello everyone! Donna here for our weekly Project of the Week at The House That Stamps Built. I thought I would start Monday morning off with bright and cheery Glittered Embellishments.

You will need: scrap card stock, punches, die cuts, glitter, a Xyron (you may substitute double sided adhesive or postal tape), and Glossy Accents (optional).
Punch out as many shapes as desired with punches or die cuts, I would just double a few the first time:

The easiest way for the next step is to run them through a mini Xyron. If you do not have a mini Xyron you can cover one side with, postal tape or double sided adhesive sheets (prior to cutting or punching your shapes out):

Remove adhesive and cover with at several colors of glitter, I use about 3 glitters per shape, including a silver or gold for shine:

Burnish well using your finger tool or a bone folder:

You can stop at this point and have beautiful embellishments:

Or take it one step further and add Glossy Accents for the look below:

I hope I have inspired you to try making some glittery embellishments for your cards or scrapbooks. Thanks for visiting.

Donna here with the Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions. I choose Distress Oxide Cling Wrap Background and had a lot of fun with this. I hope you will enjoy my tutorial and give this technique a try. I will be posting more cards at a later date that I make with more of the fun backgrounds I created!

The supplies you will need are: cling wrap, Oxide Distress Inks, (you can substitute watercolor powders or watercolors), a spray bottle of water, watercolor paper (you can substitute a good quality glossy card stock).

I am going to explain two versions, both are fun and striking, the second version requires more time patience.

Version one:
1) Spread cling wrap on your work surface. Smoosh Distress Oxide inks on the cling wrap, on my second go round I did not overlap them as much and liked those results better.

2) Spritz liberally with water.

3) Set card stock (4 /1/4 by 5 1/2 “) on the ink. Press down and scrunch the cling wrap a bit.

4) Flip over and scrunch cling wrap up and add any more colors to achieve desired look and more of a scrunched look.

Second version:
After laying the cardstock down on the Distress Oxide Inks flip over and let dry completely, no heat tool, be patient.

Complete cards as desired:
Version 1 using Repeat Impressions 6113-W Life is not…

potw7317-dt6

Version 2 using Repeat Impressions 9009-W Butterfly (sm) and 3404-C, Random Dots.

I hope you enjoyed this technique and will give it a try. I would enjoy seeing your creations!

Position as above and then remove colored cardstock and tape the white cardstock in place with double sided tape, be sure it is in the position it will be in when the card is put back together as above:

potw5817-dt3

Stamp images, be sure to overlap some edges especially corners and get a pleasing overall look:

potw5817-dt4

Tape white pieces to colored cardstock:

Assemble and embellish as desired:

My inspiration for this card was:

potw5817-dt7

Yes, it really was a Kleenex box, this was in a multipack and every time this box was on my bathroom counter I would think what a pretty card it would make, so here it is!

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and my Kleenex inspired card. Have a wonderful week and I hope you find time for some stamping!

Hi everyone, Donna here and it is my week to share a Project of the Week for The House That Stamps Built, using Repeat Impression stamps. I choose creating a Brusho background.

Start by gathering your supplies: Brusho’s, Watercolor paper (cut into fourths, trim later), Craft sheet or other waterproof surface, spritzer bottle filled with water, and 2 paper towels.

potw31317-dt1



Choose 3 complimentary colors, I chose yellow, orange, and blue.  Sprinkle two colors lightly on your paper, you can always add more.

potw31317-dt2



Spritz with water with a light touch until colors begin to blend.

potw31317-dt3



Add third color and spritz again.  Add more Brusho as needed and more water as needed.

potw31317-dt4



Continue to spritz and you can tip to blend the colors.  Area’s that muddy, get too wet, or that you want to lighten dab with the paper towel.

potw31317-dt5



Continue the process until you get the look that you want to achieve.  You can air dry or speed up the process with your embossing tool, it will not change the look but will cause some warping.

potw31317-dt6



Some people prefer to wet the paper first but I get more control with the method I showed, experiment with both and see what works best for you.

Assemble as desired using Scor-tape:
I used Repeat Impressions 708-K Rebecca and 4525-K Sunbeams for my card:
