Absolutely Fabulous


Yes...it's TGIF Eve! :) Today's 'bold and new' card has a punk style to it...well, at least I think so! The chandelier is actually a STICKER! Isn't that weird? Probably not for you, but I don't care for stickers too much. I saw these American Craft beauties and had to have them. I thought of a way to use them so they don't look like stickers. I apply them to my cardstock, then cut them out like I do stamped images or even rub-ons. I added rhinestones to the light and stamped the sentiment on pattern paper. It is a very basic card, but packs a lot of color.

Tonight, I finished altering some baby wood blocks and can't wait to share them with you and how they are used. I plan to use them next weekend and will be able to share the results the week after. Stay tuned! Oh yeah...they aren't for me...for those thinking 'those' thoughts! :)

I haven't forgotten about the How to Stamp PTI Guidelines video I promised. I plan to record and edit it by the weekend showing a new card!

Happy Thursday to ya!

Oh you clever, clever girl! I dont like stickers either and have also been eyeing off the chandeliers - now I will have to buy them! I also love creating backgrounds and just brought my first three sets from Papertrey Ink. Cant wait to start playing! You are very inspirational! I love all your cards and you have a lovely signature style.
