A month ago I attended a fun evening in Vancouver, Canada with some of my CTMH friends. We were treated to a "Base and Bling Buffet". It was a table spread with bowls of charms, bling, pendants and chains to make a necklace. The amazing thing was how fast and easy these lovely necklaces are to make. My friend Julie has posted photos of her "Base and Bling Buffet"
My R’s for this card are “Re-use, Recycle”, “Red Ruby” card
stock, and “Retired”. I’ve seen the dryer
sheets and glitter technique used on cards and so decided it was time to give
it a try. I researching the “how-to”, I
discovered there are basicially 3 ways to adhere the dryer sheet and
glitter. 1) Glue stick (which I used) 2) Spray adhesive, and 3) Zyron
Adhesive. While the glue is "wet" adhere both the dryer sheet and sprinkle with glitter. That simple! Here’s the finished product. Just remember that some stamps lend
themselves to showing through the dryer sheet and the "snowy effect" better than others and that a “wet”
adhesive will need permanent ink for stamping to achieve a crisp image.
Finally! I have the photo to show the "dryer and glitter sheet technique". Great for a winter scene. I got home late Sunday, 10 PM, it was an awesome weekend. Then needed to get up and work, I'm still wiped out! I cannot wait to retire and I will be able to crop, blog and play with paper guilt free.
In case you get lost along the way Linda's blog has a complete list of participants! Hope you enjoyed all the "R" inspired fabulous art. Plan to join us in two weeks for letter "S". Addendum: 9/6/14 I arrived at Camp Ghormley at 8:30 last night, the internet was down, and I had just driven 5 1/2 hours - 3 hours from Bellingham to I-5 with traffic from "stop and go" to "parking-lot" with occasional "near normal"/"speed limit" flow - CRAZY!!. I was tired after the long trip plus a crazy busy week. So I'm working on cards and experimenting with techniques. This is the first one I finished. The "R's" Ruby Red cardstock and ink, Roses, Random, Repeated stamping on a Triple Stamp Card. I found these on You Tube and Pinterest.
