Spotlight on Carol, aka HB at SCS









Mine is a bit simpler because I need to send this in the mail and didn't think the bling along the grass would do well with USPS. A patient brought me some treats last week when she came in to get her teeth cleaned. Boy, did that make my day!!! So, hint hint, if you want to make your hygienist happy, bring her a treat next time you go in for a cleaning :)


Recipe:

Stamp: SU! Heard from the Heart (111644)

Papers: SU! Bashful Blue, Paper Studio.

Ink: Basic Black

Accessories: Felt Flowers from Target (dollar spot) , Pink Gem by Paper Studio.


This was the quickest card!!!


I am adding Carol's blog on my list. She makes gorgeous cards! Go check it out!

Iridescent Iced Cupcake!!

I finally got a chance to play with my Sizzlits Cupcake from the new SU! catalogue. So much fun and so many possibilities!!! I got the sketch from this card by Kristina Werner. I don't need to add her blog on my list... it's been there for a long time because I totally love her blog!!!


To make the "frosting" of the cupcake sparkle, I covered the entire surface of the paper with Versamark. Then coated with a thin layer of Iridescent Ice. Heated with heating tool. Careful not to burn your fingers :) and voila!!
