Club Scrap Holiday Blog Hop

Thank you so much for visiting my blog
after you have seen Trica's awesome project

If you loose your way, you can always go to
the Club Scrap Blog,where you find
all the participants for the hop.

I choose the Homemade Holiday paper collection
to use for my projects.

Sharing with you today I have a 
scrap page, a light project and a 
Hanukkah card with a technique tip!

Ijust had to have the Homemade Holiday paper
and unmounted stamps. I have been having so muh fun
with my grandson in the kitchen, so this paper is
just perfect to use for my weekly scrap pages.

You find the Holiday colection papers and stamps HERE.

I am abig fan of the keepcalm sentiments
and so this one was perfect and so true.
Cooking and baking is a wonderfulway
of keeping the kids busy and calm.

I used the gingerbread man stamp on
shrink plastic. Colored with pencil and made a hole
before shrinking to add as an embellishemnt to the picture.

And this is just the cutest project to do. On the
Lakes blog hop I had an easellight card and while i was
searching for some more ideas I came acros this wonderful
idea at Splitcoaststampers, where you can find
 the complete tutorial and download the template.

Here is the video tutoral, so you don't have to search.

I used a sheetof Homemade Holidays paper
to print the template on the backside and 
used stamps from Gnome for the Holidays
to decorate this paper lantern.

Again I stamped some of the cookie images on
shrinkplastic and used them for embellishemnts.
(don't forget topunch the hole before you heat it!

The roof is not fastned so you can easily add
the battery-powered tea light inside.

As today is also the first day of Hanukkah
(this Jewish Holiday lasts for 8 days),
I have made a card with the Homemade
 Holiday Collection paper in combination with 
the Hanukkah stamps from 2006.
Yes, time for a new set....hopefully next year.

Here is the finished Hanukkah card
with a wonderful easy background technique
that makes the background sparkle.

For this you need the cheapest bleach,
a plastic container,
kitchen towel
goldden glimmer mist
and your rubber stamps.

Fod the kitchen towel in a way that you have 4layers
and put this in the plastic container. This is going to
be your stamp pad. Pour some bleach on it
and add glimmermist spray for the sparkle.

Use your stamp on this stamp pad for
stamping on dark paper for the best result.
Sometimes you have to try a few pieces.
You do not see the effect right away. it needs
alittle time for the best effect and to be dry!

After using your stamp, clean it by holding
it under the tap with running water a minute
and dry it off. I have used bleach more often
for stamping and it hasn't affected my stampsat all.

Well this was it for today.
You need more inspiration?
Hop on  to the so talented Wendy

Carolyn said...

Great stuff Hetty!! I love how you added the sparkle to the bleach as an all-in-one step for stamping!

Hetty, you have been busy - great projects and cards. I have used the bleach stamping technique, but never with glitter spray - I love glitz!! I'll have to try that

Karen Wyngaard said...

I love it all! Wow, you were super-productive for this hop. So much eye-candy to look at. I think my favorite is the lantern. No, maybe the layout of you and Owen baking cookies. Ah, geez, I can't pick a favorite. Happy Hannukah to you and your family!
