Tie Dye Paper Tutorial

Hello to all my bloggin' friends. Today I have a fun tutorial for you. I have been using this technique for quite awhile and finally decided to share my "secret" on how to create it with all of you.

What you'll need:
 Distress Inks in various colors, Glimmer Mist or Smooch Spray in matching colors, white cardstock, Cutrtlebug and favorite folders, Distress Ink in Black Soot.
 First smudge the colors all over your cardstock, make sure there are no white spaces.
 (I know, mine has white spaces) then spary the matching Glimmer Mist over the same colored areas.
 It will look something like the above picture.
 When the sprays are dry, cut into the sizes you want to use. I used 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. Then run these cut pieces through your Cuttlebug using your favorite folders.
 Using Black Soot Distress Ink sponge the ink over the embossed areas. This will really make the embossing stand out.
 Now pick your favorite design and create your card with it.
 I used Sassy Happy Birthday II for my card. I love the way it turned out. I popped the senti of course and added some bakers twine to finish off the card. Very easy and very fun.
Don't forget to stop back December 2nd for DT6 final blog hop and the start of the Grinch Game.

Thanks for the helping hand

Hello bloggers! Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a great day! I'm here today to bring you an elagant Thank You card. I used the Thank You set by Creative Vision. I absolutely adore this set. I know I say that about all of them but until I got this set, all my thank you cards had the same saying, now I'm versitile! On to my card:

I used some paper from Creative Imaginations that I've been hording (I'm so bad at that). I made the cut with my cricut from the Home Decor cartridge. I love this frame.
I had some paper flowers and some already crinkled ribbon that I pulled a thread out of to make it sinch up like it is.
Finished it off with some liquid pearls and some Glimmer Mist. Oh and don't forget the pop dots to lift the frame. Aside from bling, the next best thing on a card is pop dots! Hope everyone is having a great day, thanks for stopping by.
Don't forget to share a little comment love.

Halloween Wreath

I know halloween is over but I'm just finally getting around to posting pictures of the wreath I made. Go figure. I saw this wreath and fell in love and knew I could make one just as cool. So here's mine:
 Found a cute little skeleton to add to mine. I made all the orange flowers myself out of ribbon.
 Added some feathers and some black roses to go with the raven.
Also found some black bling for flower arranging so I added some of that with some sprigs or purple, orange and green tulle and pearls.

Thanks for stopping.
