Sometimes mistakes are a good thing...

Hello crafty friends!

Yesterday and today I have been obsessed with the new The {Stamps} of Life stamp set owls2love.  I really really want to add the new club member pre-sale stamps to my collection (I won't ruin the surprise if you are not a member...yet) ;)  as they will go perfect with this set.  Maybe next week.  We'll see how much fun money is left after bills are paid this month.  :(  So I just worked with what I have.  :)

I have always thought that I had a white embossing powder in my stash.  I see the jar in there all the time and think one day I will need white embossing powder.  Well...I finally got to use it. I wanted to make this solid owl stamp a ghostie.  You know, stamp it and then emboss it white.  Well, turns out that said embossing powder was clear.  "WHAT?!", you say.  Yes it is true.  So I thought, ok, I will use the other one with the sparkles right...wrong, that is just a clear with sparkles.  UGH!!!!  Then I spot a bottle of silver that I have never used.  It was from Stampin'Up which I haven't been to a party for over 10years so this is really old, and wonder if it still works.  Yes it does!  But not the look I am going for.  :(  LOL!  So here is my sample:

     clear........................silver.....................sparkly
So, I rolled with the clear and love, love, love how my homemade designer paper turned out.  What do you think?

I think Stephanie would be proud.  :)

Here are a few of the cards I made (I will share the rest tomorrow)  




Until tomorrow...

  1. So here's the thing: since your birthday is in one week, since I'm your CA buddy, and since we're friends, this is how it's gonna roll. You personally text me or email me which one of those new stamp sets you want and voila - it's yours for your birthday. And no saying no. (I "no" how you are.) XXOO
