WHEW i don’t know WHERE the day went today!  i am on work overload as i prep my cricut classes on top of my usual work load – of course pezzy has not napped in like…FOREVER!!  BUT i have been getting to bed around 8:30 to make up for my entirely too early mornings!

i broke out the Viva Decor 3D Glitter Gel again today and had some fun – so much that i made TWO cards AND a video!!  my cards both use background techniques from the book by nancy curry: Texture Effects for Rubber Stampers – this book just ROCKS!  thanks for the tip susana!  Susana also got my intrigued by another book – i will provide an update once it arrives!  on to the cards!

this card is the one featured in the video below:

i used a page from Basic Grey’s Lilly Kate love this collection!  the swirls on the blue background are from a really cool Prima stamp set you can get >>HERE<<

next i made a stencil with my cricut, the pagoda cartridge nd the sturdy cardboard piece that comes in SU paper packs.  watch the video for a thorough tutorial on creating both the dragonlies on the background and the dragonfly embellishment.  they are done using this incredible 3D Glitter Gel from Viva Decor.  it is some very cool stuff to play with.  it is a thick colored gel base with matching sparkling glitter AND silver microbeads mixed in.  Susana has lots of colors available in her store now.  i think this stuff will be INCREDIBLE on acrylic as well…

here’s a side view to show you the thickness of the gel – pretty neat stuff!

here is another card i did using a stencil – this is for today’s color challenge over on SCS:


i used Inkadinkado stamps for this background.
