Tips & Techniques Tuesday: Stickle-Enhanced Welded Titles



Happy Tuesday!  Karen N here from Craftily Yours, and today, I'm super happy to show you a fun technique to create Stickle-enhanced Welded Titles.  Sounds complicated!  It's not!  I'm showing you how I do it on a Silhouette Cameo, but you could also do it with regular cut letters from your die cutting machine.

Step 1, on your Cameo, first type the letters you want to cut.  Step 2, draw a very small rectangle at the bottom of your letters.  Step 3 is to select the entire image and right-click.  Scroll down to the "weld" selection.  Since I wanted "thick" letters, I copy and paste the new image a couple more times....then CUT.  



Next, I cut the images and glued them together.  I wanted to end up with blue letters, so I colored them.....ummmm....blue!



Now, go NUTS and pile on the Stickles!  Here, my OWH is shown with True Blue Stickles. 



Easy sneezy way to make your own unique, glittery, fun titles for scrapbooking pages and MORE!!  I used this title (and others) on my design team entry for the Distress Stickles Linky Party.  Be sure to join us...

Craftily yours,

Karen

Mixed Media Monday Distress Stickles Anything Goes



Hello, it's Ann from the blog Annmakes, and the Design Team here at All That Stickles.  I have a page from my art journal to share with you today in which I used several Distress Stickles.  I hope to inspire you to enter the Linky Party with your own version of our current theme:  "Anything goes with Distress Stickles."



One of our very nice sponsors is The Stamping Chef and I got to use this awesome digital titled "Rock My World".  It is done in my art journal with a mix of medias: paints, inks, colouring pencils, papers, collage, stamping, etc... all that is missing is the kitchen sink! :)  I used the following Distress Stickles:  Fired Brick, Picket Fence, Rock Candy, Barn Door Red,  and Scattered Straw.  Over at my blog I list all the yummy ingredients I used.  I hope to have inspired you to get down and stickly (New word).  Thanks for viewing and have a great week.

Featured Fan Friday: Deanne, Part II


Please welcome back our second Featured Fan this month, Deanne from A Little Bit O' Paper!

I LOVE Candy Corn!!! I bought a HUGE container of them, and I didn't like the old plastic container, so I decided to decorate a jar for them! Easy peasy! Just a strip of paper around the jar, and some little embellies, on it as well as something on the jar lid, and I had a sweet jar for my Candy Corn! Of course, I HAD to add Stickles!!! Some Orange Peel and Lavender and my jar is all sparkly! Yay!



Thanks for stopping by!

Tips and Techniques Thursday - Dimension and Colour to Stamped Images


Hi there! It's Laura here at All That Stickles!
This week I had a little goof so Tips/Techinque Tuesday is Thursday!
I wanted to start my Christmas cards and I thought this would be perfect.
I am going to use Stickles to colour my whole image.

First I stamped the image with Lilac Mist (I wanted a very light blue)
Stamp is Bright All Night (CTMH)

I added Eucalyptus Stickles to part of the trees.


Then I added Holly Stickles to the trees for more dimension and colour.


I added Icicles Stickles all over the blue part of the stamp to make it sparkle.



Then I decided I needed more Eucalyptus Stickles for more dimension.


I then added some Icicles Stickles on the main card.. 
just scribbled all over the cardstock.


Here is my whole card...


Think of the fun cards you could make..
Snowmen, snowglobes, candles..etch
Have a great day!







Pile Up Wednesday: Halloween Edition

Hello Stickles Lovers! Welcome to Wednesday!!!! Cathy here from the ATS Design Team bringing you another Pile Up Wednesday. I have FOUR creations to share with you inspired by our current Halloween Linky Party. A few are from my archives but they all show you varying ways to achieve a Stickles Pile Up. What's a Stickles Pile Up? It's just like it sounds, either you add a lot of one color of Stickles or you use several colors on the same project.

Here's a peek at the cards I created.

Here's the first creation, quite clean and simple with just a mini Pile Up.
Stamp: Pumpkin Kitten (Beary Wishes)
Stickles: (Orange Peel, Baby Blue, Distress Straw)
I did the basic Pile Up technique of applying Stickles along the lines of the image. I outlined the pumpkin with Orange Peel, added Baby Blue to the kitten's bow and Distressed Straw to the flowers. This is the nice and easy way to start a Pile Up.

My second card uses the method of adding copious amounts of Stickles to an entire area of your image. Another easy way to get a Pile Up.
Stamp:Witch 1 (A Day for Daisies)
Stickles: (Lime Green, Magenta, Cotton Candy)
I had this awesome designer paper from DCWV that created the perfect back drop to my witch. A bit of fussy cutting and she looks like part of the scene.

This photo shows where I applied Stickles. Her dress has a solid layer of glittery goodness. I wanted to give some dimension to her hat so I only applied to the shadowed areas.

Card number three has a CAS layout with the Stickles Pile Up on the image. I combined several Stickles coloring techniques.
Stamp: Pumpkin Love Witch (Torico) 
Stickles: (Purple, Lime Green, Lavender, Black Diamond, Copper)
I outlined the pumpkin in Copper, used Black Diamond on the shadows of her hat and boots, a solid layer of Lime Green on her hair, and heavy accents on the shadows of her dress with Lavender.

My last creation has quite the Pile Up. This time I mixed in some Distress Stickles to the mix. They have a chunkier matte look than Original Stickles which work well with Halloween images.
Stamp: Attie Pumpkin (Pattie G) 
Stickles: (Black Diamond, Orange Peel, Cotton Candy, Gunmetal, Mystic Green; Distress: Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Milled Lavender)
I angled the pic on the left so you can see where I applied Stickles. There's not much space that's free from glitter! If you look closely at the grass you can see Mystic Green as the border and Distress Peeled Paint filled into the grassy area. See, they are a little different. I used Orange Peel on the outlines of the pumpkin and filled it in with Distress Spiced Marmalade. The kitty is decked out in Gunmetal and Cotton Candy; Distress Milled Lavender provides the sparkle stars around the image and Black Diamond adds the right amount of shine to the pumpkin face. I opted to leave the kitty's eyes sparkle free and added Black Enamel Accents (another awesome Ranger product).

That's all I have for you today. I hope you will join my Stickles Pile Up movement and share your creation. The clocks ticking, but you still have time to join in the Halloween Linky Party. 

Thanks for coming to the Pile Up! I'll see you with another creation in a fort night.
~ Cathy, ATS Design Team

Halloween Mixed Media and Blog Hopping

Hi there All That Stickles fans, if you are hoping to see what is "Hopping" with the team, have no fear that is still going on and just go back a post or click here.




Today is Mixed Media Monday time with Ann from the Design Team and the blog:  Annmakes.http://annmakes.blogspot.com




Here you are, my Trifold Screen for Halloween.  I used a lot of Stickles on this baby, and a lot of Ranger's Distress Inks, Glitter, and Embossing powders.  I had a blast making this and I am proud to actually use it as a decoration, along with last week's coffin in my home.  If you go to my blog:  Annmakes, you can read all about ALL the supplies I used to make this.  For now let me share with you just which Stickles I used.  Of course I used "Rock Candy", as always and there is "Spiced Marmalde",  "Orange Peel",Walnut Stain", "Black Diamond", and "Paprika".
I hope this inspires you to make some Halloween themed projects and why not link up to our Linky Party and share your creations.  Thanks for viewing.

Featured Fan Friday: Marji, Part II


Please welcome back one of our Featured Fans for October, Marji from Tiggerscraps!

Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat!
Isn't that a horrible rhyme, lol, makes me giggle though.
I grabbed lots of goodies with this one, edible and not so much.
I used a cute Witch Boot file from Creative Kuts and added lots of sparkle with my Stickles.


 I made a swirl with the purple tulle and added a fabric covered button from Pinque Peacock with some shear ribbon tassels underneath.


 I created the spider webs by drawing a swirl with the Stickles then taking a hat pin and scraping from the center out, dragging some glitter glue with it. I then just dotted all around with the other 2 colors.



 I added a beautiful splendid swirl also made by Pinque Peacock to the buckle. It's made with 3 Girl Jam ribbon. I tied up some candy bars with the purple tulle then tied it with a cute orange ribbon and topped it off with another fabric covered button from Pinque Peacock.


Fun? I hope you think so, I had a lot of fun making it!
