I love it when you come across something super cute in your stash you totally forgot you owned, These toppers from Hunky Dory (I think, these are years old) were a great find and enabled me to make a couple of quick fun cards.
I made a heart to hang from my tree, but as it's not overly Christmassy you can display it all year round.
The heart was a polystyrene shape I had in my stash, I covered this with scrunched up tissue paper.
which I painted with red acrylic paint.
I roughly stamped over the top with a harlequin stamp and distress ink before sprinkling with black embossing powder and heating with my heat tool. I like how the polystyrene will bubble under heat but if you don't you need to keep moving the heat tool not letting any area get too hot.
On a non-stick mat, I scrapped some layers of gold acrylic paint which I left to dry overnight. I carefully peeled them from the mat and glued them to my heart using a gel medium.
Using a very small amount of white paint I stamped the dot stamp to add some lighter areas. To finish off I doodled with a white paint pen and glued some black ribbon to the top so the heart could hang from my tree.
I am sharing a journal page today, I created using stamps from The Artistic Stamper, pop over to there blog and take a look. There is still a couple a day to enter the November challenge, the theme is quotes.

My team project was created on canvas board using Gelatos and a small amount of white acrylic paint. I put down a layer of colour on my board from the pigment sticks, I chose three colours for the background, once the colour was down I blended them in using sponge (Love the product, but I'm not too keen on touching it with my fingers), Then I sprayed some water on one of The Artistic Stampers background stamps and pushed it into the Gelato to remove some of the colour.
Then to add a small pop of contrasting colour and rubbed some red Gelato onto a different background stamp sprayed that with water and randomly stamped over my board. The white acrylic paint was added by applying it to the bottom of different sized lids and using those as stamps before the final splattering of black acrylic paint went over the top.
On a separate piece of card, I stamped the large light bulb and filled it with butterflies, before glueing it to the board. To finish I went around everything with a paint pen and added my quote.
Thanks for popping by, please leave a comment to let me know what you think.
