Not to worry I haven’t injured the snowplow guy but only because I know they wont let me have sharp objects in jail and I don’t think I could survive without crafting. Actually the man is a sweetheart. He is our park handy man and if he thinks one of us
I love pure white cards but I’ve never been able to create one before. Today I finally managed to resist the urge to add color somewhere. I began by embossing with a no name EF that came with my Cuttlebug. Next I created a frame with MS Garden Trellis punch and added my bow. I arranged a bouquet of two sprigs of leaves with Sizzlets Leafy branch die and flowers from my stash on a one inch circle then tucked it under the bow. I then added three MS LG Monarch Butterflies and Recollections pearls to the corners, the butterflies and flower centers. Finally I sprayed the entire card with Shimmer Mist Sparkle. This was difficult to photograph, couldn’t get it to show but it really does sparkle IRL.
Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace does magical things with paper, ribbon and Spellbinders. She also uses punches in ways that boggles my mind. For my frame I followed Becca's turorial for Perfect Mitered Corner with Punch here.My bow is also a Becca creation she calls a Peg Bow. You can find that tutorial here. I’d love to make a bow maker like hers but space is at a premium in the Closet. Instead I’ve pushed my pegs into a few layers of foam board. The bottom layer is wide so I can weigh the whole thing down with my Cuttlebug. I can remove the pegs and fit the pieces into a small space.
My computer has been acting up quite a bit lately. I am no computer whiz kid but I am going to try to figure out what’s going on, hopefully I wont blow it up. If you don’t hear from me you’ll know I did something wrong.
Have an Amazing Day!
