Glimmer gone wild!

You are going to love this technique!  Leave it to Dawn Griffith to come up with something as WOW as this!

 Start by stamping an image with a good solid outline onto a piece of window sheet with Memento ink.

Mark this side with a B so you know it is the back side.

Turn it over and color with Stampin' Blends.  If you color over the black lines of the back side, the black ink will bleed.

Let it dry and color again if you want darker colors.

Adhere several glue dots on image (still on the backside), then adhere to piece of Silver Glimmer Paper.
Cut out both pieces together then finish card.

Scrap tags

I don't throw anything out!  Paper pieces, embellishments, die cuts, even pieces of twine make awesome tags.

Here are a few I made for customer bags this month.

Stenciled sign

Ever think about using your framelits to make a stencil?  Well, it works!

I had been looking everywhere for a stenciled laundry sign to put between the windows in my laundry room.  Then realized I could make my own stencil with Stampin' Up!s large alphabet framelit dies.

 First, I found a piece of scrap wood that was just the right size and painted it a flat black.
 While that was drying, I used my Big Shot and cut the letters L A U N D R Y from a heavy piece of cardstock using the Large Alphabet framelit dies.
 I placed my stencil on the piece of wood, taped it down so it wouldn't move, and stenciled it with white paint.
 I like to distress my painted signs a little, so I used fine sandpaper and sanded some of the paint off the edges and corners.
Looks pretty good, don't you think?
