Brusho Crystals... contained

The other day I wanted to create a card using the Brusho Crystals but didn't want it to let it spread all over, because I wanted a somewhat clean look... I did achieve it! Scroll down to see how I did it..




I lightly taped the watercolor paper onto grid paper and then used masking tape to create the clean border. The lines from the grid paper helped me keeping the open inner area a straight shape!




I almost forgot to take a picture of the masking in progress so I took one after I spritzed it a 2nd time with water and stood it up so the water could run off

Paper pumpkin to the rescue

Today I want to start out with an apology to you all for not posting for several days in a row. I normally try to at least post 5 days a week, but the last two weeks been very hectic and I couldn't get it done like I want it to. But as they say, it will always get better again :-) and so here is to starting to blog again

Tiday I'm showing you two cards that I've made with a paper pumpkin kit. I am so happy that I am subscribed to this wonderful Stampin' Up! service because it helps me to make quick cards when I need them...

And I used them as thank you cards for stamp club orders this month...





So if you are finding yourself in a bind to make cards at times and don't want to design from scratch maybe you want to consider trying out paper pumpkin as well? Let me know if you need help with that...

Love the Metal rimmed Pearls?

Well.... if you do love them... you need to stock up on them while they are still available. Sadly they will be retiring with this catalog. So I am going to use mine up and started with some today...


A little tip... I used the tape and tear under the ribbon so it would not slide, since I used it around the card front...

I've added a mini dimensional under the banner to make it come to life a bit...
