fun cards this time

When I was showing the differences in the 5 clear stickles that Ranger has, I used this stamp.  As you go from left to right, you can see how the color of the glitter changes.  But they are simply the 5 shades of clear stickles!  If you size your samples just right - you can turn them all into cards and there's no waste.

When I first saw this stamp at a show up in Denver, I absolutely had to have it!  I laugh every time I use it!!!  The "cup" is made using metal repousse techniques on Amaco's pewter.  Very dimensional.

One of these days I'm going to make 2 of the very same card and show one with stickles and the other without.  Even adding just a drop on the background paper makes all the difference in the world!

This is a very simple technique.  Just distress inks on white paper.  I diecut out the dress form and put stickler, embossed distress paper behind it.  Then added the diecut arch over the "window".  I love the look and it's just so easy to do!

Are you starting to ask when the cards will end and I'll get on to something else?  Not yet!!!
