It’s another Fran•táge Friday at Paper Craft Planet, brought to you by Stampendous. Learn something new & win some stamps … woo-hoo!
This week we’re playing around with embossing enamel. The Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel adds a great effect especially for Christmas Crafting.
Here’s the layered Christmas ornament we’ll be making:
The supplies you’ll need include embossing enamel, Cling Jumbo Pine Drift stamp, clear Christmas Ball ornaments, oh yes & have a stash of buttons.
The embossing enamel looks great when you add small amounts on the branches of the tree. I just painted a bit of glue where I wanted the enamel to high-light. I also used some more buttons for ornaments on the tree.
In order to get the layered look, just stamp a few times & cut out what you want to use. Use textured paper for a tree-like look. I also only used part of the stamp on this project, it’s a very versatile stamp set that way.
Now take a mason jar of buttons, some super sticky tape & sit down in front of the tele for a show or two & cover the ornament with buttons:
Add your focal point and a ribbon and there you have it!
Thanks so much to the folks at Stampendous for these fabulous products and the giveaway!

This is for the Tuesday, Dec 14th 3D Challenge, 3d92, “Cute as a Button Ornament”.
When I first saw this, I had to give it a go. Pipecleaners, Buttons, Brad & mini-eyelet is what I used to make this little snowman ornament. This would be a good one to do with kids, but me being a big kid, I had a blast with it.
You can use buttons & pipecleaner/wire alone or add some eyelets & clip a brad for the nose, like I did …
Share your ideas & give it a go & we’ll put it in the 3D92 Album. We’d love to see your snowmen, Santa’s, Reindeer, Christmas tree!

Hiya! So I’ve changed up my blog, just a bit. I’ve had it for almost 2 years & baby toes-banner are not part of my everyday. My beloved, patient DH, is back in town & I was bombarding him with questions about wordpress and blogging and what is CSS & why can’t the programmer just make is so that Chartreuse Green is called that, instead of “00ff00″. My brain doesn’t work that way–I just don’t understand it at all. So I gave up trying to figure out how to change the coding myself (much to hubbie’s relief) and found this program called Artisteer, which was a huge help for me trying to mess around with Wordpress. Anyhoo, there’s my scoop on how I go about sprucing up my blog. The digi frames I used are from Rhonna Farrer and Carina Gardner. Otherwise, the rest was just playing around in illustrator & photoshop. Still some funky stuff going on with links/lists, but I’ll work at that another weekend.
Onto more fun stuff! The Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge this week, #71, 13 going on 30. Fun & colourful!

I watched ‘Tristan and Isolde’ on YouTube, had never heard of it before, but throughly enjoyed the love story. I think the whole idea of romantic tragedy appealed to me from the idea of living in the moment. Perhaps never seeing a loved one again to rejoicing in simple reminders until you do meet again. Make sense? This card reminds me of the secret doors from the movie & the coral bracelet that Tristan made. I made mine from Flower Soft & a piece of ballet slipper elastic. :) The technique of the the wood is called faux bois can be found at SCS.
The ring ‘Coral Bracelet’ ring on the door …
