It is snowing here and very very cold outside !! And I went shopping LOL , I wanted to get some craft items to make some valentines cards. I was going to go yesterday , but decided to wait til the kids were in school today. And when we got up...there was lots of snow on the ground .
Anyways , I got my stuff and decided to make a card for a challenge over at TrimCraft useing some of my new items.
I got some new Cuttlebug embossing folders . They are soo pretty !I also got some new stamps,border punch, papers, ink, rub-on images, flowers, glitter glue and a few other things as well .
I have only tried glitter glue a few times so I wanted some good glue and got the Glitz-It range...only a couple of bottles incase I dont like it. And I have not used rub-ons before so I thought I would try that out as well.
So the papers on this card are not my new ones. These are from a site called PaperCraft Inspirations. I wanted to see how they printed off and if I would be able to use them. They turned out really nice. Its a Valentines set they have for free ! I like free stuff LOL.
The stamp is by Magnolia, I did alter her a bit after I stamped and coloured her in. I cut off the side ribbons. I used Whisper Strokes markers, Glitz-It glitter and Glitz-It pearlescent glue, and my Sakura Glaze pens on her.
I embossed the white card with my Cuttlebug embossing foler, and then took the Crystal Glitz-It glue on some of the raised images.
