Life in the Fast Lane

Good morning one of the new products appearing at CHA was Clearsnap's Memory Essential Terrific Tool Tips . Here's a fun way to use the Tips.

Using the square tip, alternately dab Wisteria and Creamy Brown across white cardstock.

Using Cat’s Eye Dark Brown, run the ink pad between the patterns created by the other inks.

Cut the paper to 5"x5" and ink the edges with Dark Brown. Mat onto a piece of lavender cardstock, then mount onto a brown card base.

This is a look at the final background I created.

Cut a scalloped shape from a Spellbinders die and adhere to the left side of the card, adding a strip of brown cardstock to finish.

Stamp the image on white cardstock and color. Cut the image into a rectangle and corner round the edges. Ink the edges with Dark Brown ink, then sponge Creamy Brown around the image.

Mat with cardstock and adhere to card front.

Stamp sentiment in Dark Brown and emboss with Pearl Embossing Powder. This provides just a hint of sparkle. Ink edges with Creamy Brown and mat with cardstock. Adhere to card with foam dots.

I added a rhinestone swirl to the card, but it did not stand out – so, out came my Smooch and I painted each rhinestone.
