Christmas Craft Haul and Projects Using the Supplies

I shared a video on utube recently showing the supplies I purchased with a gift certificate my daughter gave me for Christmas.  Here is that video.  I have to tell you I am loving the Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  Why have I been wasting my time with a tape runner?  Glue is the way to go in a lot of instances and I just needed a good glue and this is it!

This week I used some of the supplies to create a few cards.  Here is the link to that video.

I created two cards.  This first card is a baby card and I used one of the images from the Penney Black Stamp “Happy Times” there are lots of cute images in this stamp set so I am looking forward to using them again and coloring the images.  Here is a picture of that card.  

The next card I made I used the stamp from Studio Katia.  It is a large panel of flowers.  I stamped it out and colored it with copic markers.  Does your auto correct change copic to topic.  How annoying!  I wanted to make a sympathy card and I realized I have very few sympathy card sentiments.  

I cut around the panel of flowers and adhered some brown card stock underneath to bring more interest to the card itself.  I used the only stamp I had “Heartfelt Sympathy”  and that completes card number 2.  I am entering this card into the SSS Wednesday Challenge.

Instructions
  1. Heat the vita fiber mix for about 4 Minutes until bubbly in a heavy bottom pot. Add all the other ingredients and place in a 8” square pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. Place in the fridge for several hours or overnight. Then cut into bars. I like to place sea salt on the top of the bars when I am pressing them into the pan.
Recipe Notes

See how easy!  Sometimes I like to add a couple tablespoons of Nut butterr to the vita fiber and/or some cinnamon for a different taste.

SSS September 2017 Card Kit – Birthday Card

I made a video showing how I created this birthday card from the September 2017 card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I am entering this card in the following card challenges.

SSS Wednesday Challenge

 

Here is the link to the video.

I also made some other cards using this kit.  Below are the photos.

For this card I used the rainbow stamp and stamped it so it formed a circle.  I colored it using sharpies.  I found the fine stamped image easiest to color with fine tip points.  I used copic markers to color the card above and it was challenging to stay in the lines! I stamped the candles, sentiments and other images with memento die ink.  I used a versa mark ink pad and stamped over the double rainbow image and applied clear embossing powder several times to make the image have some dimension and shine.  I cut out that circle and then used to die circles to create the yellow frame around the rainbow.  I finished off the card with some sequins.

The next card I made was inspired by a video I saw from Kristina Werner.  I used glossy accents on the heart rainbow image which is directly stamped on my panel.

The last card was the inspiration for the card I made the video on.  It has just a slightly different version of the above card.

 

New Potato Rendang

I bought a recipe book called the Big Vegan.  I have had it for awhile.  But today I decided to finally try a recipe. This one is  a winner!  I love curry and while this isn’t exactly curry  it is similar.   The recipe describes the dish as Malaysian.  The citrus creates a fabulous flavor to the dish.  This will join my rotation of favorite recipes!  Give it a try.
