Vellum in disguise.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever used paper to disguise something? I know we often use embellishments to disguise our goofs when leaving a smudge or fingerprint on our paper. But how about using paper to cover?

In this case I am talking about vellum. When a piece of Designer Series Paper is too bright then use a piece of vellum as an overlay. When a piece is too dark use a piece of vellum as an overlay. When you want accents on a card that aren’t the main focus use vellum. Just remember if you use a stylus to have a light touch. And if you use a heat tool to emboss move it away an additional inch or so and keep it moving more. Vellum scorches and warps much easier.

Happy Crafting!

Embellishments instead of errors.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever created a card or project and not known what to put to finish it? Did you already glue it together and wish you had stamped? Then use embellishments!

In this case I had already glued the pocket on and knew that this needed something. I thought of stamping first but knew I really couldn’t with the folds. Instead I reached for the Frosted Flower Embellishments.

Happy Crafting!

Shimmer paint with an aqua painter.

It’s Technique Tuesday!  You can color the embellishments with the stampin’ blends or the shimmer paints. Simply dampen the tip of the aqua painter and then dip into the paint.

Embellishments in disguise.

Embellishments are not just to pretty things up.  Sometimes they are used to hide a fingerprint, smudge, or even a glue dot.  In yesterday’s class a crafter used a glitter enamel dot to hide the bump from a glue dot.  Don’t think your card is ruined until you have tried everything.

Happy Crafting!

P.S.  If you need a retiring list for the Holiday Catalog please let me know.

Alcohol markers color more than paper.

Have you tried the new Stampin’ Blends, the alcohol markers?  Did you know they can color more than paper?  You can color tile, glass, embellishments, and more!  Take a look!
