simply wonderful

(this is my second post today...for my Clear and Simple Stamps review post, please scroll down!)

Well, they ended up cancelling school completely today because the governor declared a state of emergency.  The roads are only now starting to get bad, so I think we could have gotten away with that half- day that was originally planned!

Luckily, the extra time at home gave me the chance to whip up a card for yesterday's Clean and Simple Card Making lesson (pssst!!  My first ever instructional video is being featured in class today!! yay!)

Yesterday's lesson was all about texture- I used an embossing folder and glitter to add texture to my card.  I was so excited to try out the Stamp 'N Bond powder I got from Tasnim yesterday- it worked perfectly!!  I love how I now have a more painless way to get glitter onto my projects.

  1. Beautiful card, really like the design! I am wondering how you got a gradient with glitter! If you used two or three glitter colors, then that is just brilliant and really detailed work! You know, I haven't been quite successful with this technique, maybe I should get the same brand heat'n stick powder :)
