Triple post for you

Hello! I've been a little out of it with a sinus infection, so I thought I'd make up for it with 3 new pics for you.

First one is a sample of "cracked glass" using Crystal Effects. You can also do this with the thick embossing powder, but I think I told you I was working on CE samples and it's just another way of using what you have kind of a thing. The key is to keep it in the freezer for a while and crack it as soon as you take it out, otherwise it won't be hard anymore. I stamped the rose from Wild Rose in Bravo Burgundy, stamped off once, then directly on vanilla CS. Covered entire thing in CE, waited a few hours for it to dry, then put it in the freezer. That was layered on Choc. Chip , layered on Bravo Burgundy with Choc. Chip ribbon and all on Vanilla CS with Mother's Day stamped in Bravo Burgundy from All Holidays.

OK, next is another Crystal Effects sample. Here it is simply drawn on the cardstock in a swirl design and also in the circles of the flower although you can't really see it here. Colors are Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst. Doodle this was stamped in Craft White. This makes a fun scrapbook page with some dimension very quickly.

Last, we have a simple card from my World Card Making Day Event. I had cards that could be made in less than 5 minutes. OOh - quick thought - maybe I should submit them to Take Ten magazine. What do you think? Here I used Really Rust, Old Olive and White CS. I markered Really Rust and Old Olive inks on the flower and wheeled Boho Friend in Craft White ink. Sentiment finishes it in Old Olive.

I'm planning on working on more things once my head "clears up", including a tutorial, so check back in a day or 2 for that. Have a great day!
