Sparkle and Shine-Foiling

This was stamped on water paper.  The stamp is from Stampers Anonymous "Illustrated Garden" and was stamped with Versamark.  Ranger Sticky embossing powder was added to the stamped image and melted.  Gold foil was then rubbed onto the stamped image.  Water colors in shades of red and green were used to color the flower with a blue border added.  The sentiment is Penny Black.

Sparkle and Shine Day 1-Glitter

The new Sparkle and Shine Online Card Class began today with different ways to use glitter.  The card shown here uses the Glitter Die Cut Inlay demonstrated by Jennifer McGuire.

Using wide score tape a 4.25 by 5.5 white card stock was cut with a Taylored Expressions Ornate Frame Cutting Plate.  Portions of the tape were removed so that the mint glitter could be adhered to the card base.  The card needed more contrast so a black frame was cut and offset a little to help finish the card.  The greeting is from Penny Black -Stitched Flowers.  Adhesive was put on the wood butterflies and gold glitter added.  Have to say it was not the big glitter mess that I expected.  A small amount of glitter went a long ways as it was pressed by hand into the tape.  Hope you enjoy.

Ink Cube Storage

I was reading a storage forum and just had to order this to store my ink cubes in.  This is a  large 5 drawer jewelry and cosmetic storage unit.  I found mine on Amazon, but they are available from other sources.  My drawer with the Altenew inks has room for 28 cubes in it and with room to remove them (I have some pushed back so you can see there is room).  It is about 10 1/2 inches wide, 7 inches wide and 6 inches high.  Always trying to find a better way to store my supplies so thought I would share this.

Looking Back

It is always fun to look back and see what you may have been doing in your crafting.  This card was one I posted April 2nd six years ago.  My first blog post was April 2010.  I am hoping to get back to more frequent posts in the near future.
