Hope your holiday Sparkles :)

Hey everyone!  I have a fun tutorial on how to use Modeling paste with embossing powder.. I hope you love it as much as I loved creating it! If you would like to see more details..
I had soo much fun making this card. I tried a technique that I haven't seen anyone do yet.. so maybe this will be new to you as well. 

I adore and LOVE white on kraft :)

I used a pop of red to make it feel extra Christmasy .. lol is that a word? I am making my own words up now lol well I hope you enjoy this video and the new technique. :) hugs

One of the COOLEST background techniques EVER!

Hey everyone! I am here with a way cool, fun, and a little unusual technique for you. I wanted to show all of you how to use ordinary salt to give your backgrounds the perfect look. This is the perfect technique for those night skies, under the sea themes, or if you just want a cool tie dye look. :) 
This has to be my favorite way of using this technique.. it turned out amazing with a little shine too :) 

this was cool if you wanted a really soft look..

perfect for underwater scene!

This one would be PERFECT for a nights sky with white embossing on it..

Here they are all together :) 
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! If you have any questions let me know :)  HUGS

It's Hump Day!!!

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! First I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU!!! To everyone who supported Libby and stopped by her blog and youtube video to leave her love.. she is so excited to have her own "friends" online.. :) you made her whole week..!
Everyday here is crazy.. I have a fun card and six matching tags to go along with it, to share with you..
Warning! This is going to be a little picture heavy! ;)
I wanted the tags and card to share a theme.. but not be the exact same.

On each balloon I placed a little stickles over the dark part of the balloon.. this does 2 things...draws your eyes to the shading, and gives it a little sparkle.

So I made sure to do the same stamping and filling in the dots on all the tags and the card. This makes them all go together. Along with the black strip of paper..

Dimension was the key to this card.. and I had a blast making this set..

I really love how it all turned out :) I hope you all enjoy the process.. Thanks so much for taking a peek.. hugs


Lots of dots :) 
When I saw this picture.. all I could see was spots and dots.. and the randomness of the pictures not being in a line.. that's why I chose the background check stamp :)
