Welcome to the Pennywise Blog Hop!


“Thanks for hopping along on our Pennywise Arts community blog hop! If you happened to stumble upon us the hop begins at  Pennywise Arts and the next stop is Impressions Delight the full list of participants are below. There will be a fabulous prize drawing from blog hoppers that leave a comment on every blog entry of the hop, so make sure to let us know you were here!

My creation is a 6"x6" card featuring clear translucent microbeads from Pennywise Arts. The stamped image is from Sweet Pea Stamps. The paper is DCWV. The frame is a Spellbinders die cut, as are the flourishes.



To get this look cut a frame, spray with color, such as Glimmer Mist, and attach the beads all over with Diamond Glaze. After it has all dried, use your finger to knock off beads in small areas to give it a distressed look and more texture. Stamp, color and trim out your image and then mat on a 4" x 4" piece of paper. Overlay the frame and attach with foam tape. Attach your framed image onto a 6" x 6" card stock base. Embellish with gimp, ribbons, flowers and flourishes. (The umbrella embellishment was from a cocktail - painted with a 18K gold paint pen). The flourishes have a few of microbeads painted gold.

I hope you have enjoyed your stop along the way - happy hopping! Below are all of the hop participants in case you get lost!
