New Groovy Glitz

We have received some new product, and it's time to highlight one of our smaller brands - Glitz. You may be familiar with Glitz for Doodle Rollers and other various rub-ons and stamps, but they have other product too!

I like this Maya Bird stamp because it is so versatile! I could very easily see it on a holiday card, but it'd also work for something Springy or Summery. The script writing adds some interest and offers an opportunity to color in a contrasting way (if you want to get super-detailed) or just let the background colors through. I think it'd be cool to highlight certain areas of the bird with gemstones, like the tail, wings, or underbelly. Or you could order a bird's nest and make a nest/ branch for the bird to sit on.

Vintage Extras

I LOVE the flower that is on here. These Vintage Extras rub-ons are perfect for any project, particularly one you might be entering into the Simon Says Stamp & Show Vintage Challenge! The man and woman squares remind me of traveling - I was highly amused by the different signs in different countries and made sure to take pictures. I like the ransom note-like letters at the top too.

Create a Card Vol 3
Ever feel stumped on what kind of card to make for someone? With Create-a-card, your problem is solved in a matter of minutes! It offers 100 ready-to-print cards or you can make your own by photo-shopping in papers and accents onto a template you select. The card-making collection themes include Halloween, Birthday, Christmas, Thanks, and Hello/friend, and there are 99 paper backgrounds. There's so much that you can do with this kit - it's really a steal!!

Hoopla
Hoopla die-cuts are great for scrapbook pages and birthday cards. You could either cut up the die-cuts and have lots of "April" pieces, or use the whole thing for a month page accent. It'd be neat to take highlights from each month and make a scrapbook with 12 pages or chapters. You could also create your own calendar with whatever images and papers you want and use these die cute for the month titles.

Tulle
Tulle is one of my favorite kinds of ribbon because it is so elegant. You could also tatter the edges to give it a rough look, depending on the project. It'd be neat to sew it on with a contrasting colored thread and I've seen lots of people get creative and use tulle for netted parts of their card or project.

Have other ideas of how to use these products? Post 'em up for a chance to win blog candy!! If I pick your idea, we will send you the 2010 sweet things idea book from Penny Black (it's 11 pages of stamps and ideas) - a special opportunity since it's not listed in our store!!

Have a lovely day!

  2. I could see the bird popped up for dimension or even given a second generation stamping as though he was flying. Scrapbooking older generations reminds me of vintage. The tulle makes fabulous ribbons on gifts.

  3. Fabulous products! Ideas? How about:

    Maya Bird: A collage/windchime type of project stamping the bird onto thin metal sheets in copper, gold and silver. Another idea would be to make a coaster out of polymer clay and stamp and ink this image into the clay for a unique coaster.

    Vintage Extras: The cameo would look great rubbed on a glass jar holding hair clips or ribbons. The international man/woman images could be rubbed on the front of 2 different bathroom cabinet drawers to distinguish his and hers.

    Hoopla - great for creating a family "important dates" mini book to give at Christmas so everyone has these important dates at hand.

    Tulle - I love to use it in white when making wedding cards - I make a wedding "dress" using a heart (dry embossed with lace)for the bodice and then white tulle and ribbon for the dress.

  4. On Vintage Extra rub ons the man and the woman squares would be useful in a dollhouse. People make extraordinary dollhouses, and these would perfect in any kind of store on restrooms doors xD

    I wonder if that cameo could be rubbed on a oval fragment - it would be extraordinary cameo jewelry.
