Card using Cricut

I made a card last week using my cricut. I have been neglecting it lately and its been gathering dust so thought it was about time I had a little play. Using my Wild Card cartridge I made a card in the shape of a house with a matching door envelope. Everything was cut out and all I had to do was stick it all together, how easy is that :)

I embossed some vellum to look like frosted glass for the door envelope, added a brad for the handle. The cute little tree planters were cut using the icon, I did the same on the card for the door and window with embossed vellum and I added a few rubons.

Thanks for dropping by and I would like to wish each and everyone of you a Safe and Happy Easter! xx

Glimmer Mist

Every second Friday one of the Design Team members over at the wonderful Let's Scrap community provide an interesting tutorial and once again it was my turn :)

Glimmer Misting

This is such a fun technique and really simple. I am sure we all have some sort of Glimmer mist spray in our stash, if not check further down this tutorial and you’ll find a quick and easy substitute. Mists are generally water-based, archival safe, acid-free and non-toxic that add a touch of glimmer in a fine mist to your projects.
Step 1: Firstly gather all of your supplies.
Step 2: Arrange your mask, stencil or objects onto your flat surface.
Step 3 : Spritz your project with a lighter spray of glimmer mist at first, keep spraying until you get desired colour and coverage.  To achieve a subtle misting affect spray from a distance.  You can add additional colours if you like.  
Step 4 : Remove mask carefully (at this point you can add a liberal amount of embossing powder or UTEE adding a great texture and effect), allow to air dry or you may wish to use a heat gun to speed drying process. (of course your heatgun is required if you went the extra step with embossing powder!)
Step 5 : Finish off with embellishing and decorating your card, layout or project as you wish.
Alternatives to masks are chipboard pieces, negative images, leaves, flowers, die-cuts, mesh, the list goes on. You can even create unique backgrounds without the stencils, mists help alter the colour of your paper. Go be creative and have FUN!

Making your own Glimmer mist Spray

Small misting spray bottle filled with water
Ranger Perfect Pearls (colour of your choice) or Shimmer paint
Adirondak Alcohol Ink (few drops)
Mix Well!

Hope you enjoyed this quick and simple tutorial. Have a very scrappy day!
