In the past, I have tried to add a bit of sparkle to die cuts with embossing powder and it has never quite worked the way I hoped it would. Then I made a bit of a mess trying to use a product for the first time and went to YouTube to figure out what I should have done. In the video was a bit about using it with embossing powder on die cuts, and Viola! This is what I have been trying to do. What a great effect.
Bright and colorful and full of happiness and joy! This little girl just seems to be having the best day. I love that. Summer as a kid is so very different than summer as an adult. Something that this last weekend was very apparent to me. Two of the kids were spending time over here and it was nice watching them enjoy the joys of summer.
Can you find the butterfly? I was having fun channeling my inner hide and seek book authors making this card. I could have made it a lot more difficult, but I think that it is still fun that the butterfly isn’t completely obvious at first glance.
Summer vacation has officially started! Which means I will do what I can over the next few months, but I may not be posting quite as much. Nieces and nephews take precedence at this time. Sorry, not sorry. Priorities and all…
New stamps! It is always so much fun to get new stuff to be creative with. Yesterday I just couldn’t help myself I needed to make a card right away with this stamp set. I love all of the swirly designs and this one is just so fun and pretty.
