i have spent most of this week on my craft room re-organization. WOW am i exhausted but it is really really nice! not from a house beautiful perspective but from a functionality perspective – which is really what’s important and it is also a whole lot cheaper! of course now i will have to get used to where i have put everything. that usually takes me awhile 😛
i DID clear off a space to make a quick card in the middle of the mess for this week’s Twisted Thursday Challenge on The Outlawz challenge site. This week is “fave technique” and i have so many it was tough to pick one. BUT while cleaning up i came across a box i created awhile ago and knew what i wanted to do:
yes the card is super simple but with that background it still rocks! i got it from the magazine Crafts ‘n Things – LOVE LOVE LOVE that mag! and it is very simple to do. simply smoosh your versamark pad onto your cardstock in a few random spots, cover with embossing powder and heat. next, smoosh it a few more times in different spots and repeat with a different powder. finally do it one more time in other areas with a third powder. be sure to leave some of your cardstock uncovered.
i used powders from Stampendous’ Frantage collection which i recently reviewed for Craft Critique – these powders ROCK! very unique! i added a couple layers of felt from Felt On the Fly and a fall yoyo on some raffia and finished it off with a glittered skittle in the middle. i will have a piece on the Clover yoyo makers and kanzashi flower makers on craft critique soon!
i hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
