Precious Metals

5 03 2010

I challenged my Secret Sister to create something different for this week. My choice was using an alumnium can to see what I could come up with. I was able to run this through the Big Shot using the lattice die cut. It made a really great, non traditional card. 🙂 I used the Beautiful Butterflies embosslits for accent. Pretty in Pink, Whisper Whited, Going Gray, Basic Black were the colors. The brads are pink rhinestones.

Here’s a closer look.

Praying for You Dryer Sheet

5 03 2010

I used the topnote, Whisper White, the Thoughts and Prayers stampset. I used markers on the stamp, stamped the image, then rubbbed SU’s glue stick all over the image and surrounding paper. Then placed the dryer sheet over it gently pressing it into the glue. I  poured dazzling diamonds on the dryer sheet. Framed with the topnot, added ribbon and tag.
