Glittered Backgrounds and Vellum Flowers

I have some lovely vellum flowers to show you along with some beautiful glittered backgrounds.


First, pop over to the Scrapadabadoo Blog 
to watch the video on how to do these
awesome glittered backgrounds using
glitter, stencils, and adhesive backed paper.


Now, for the vellum flowers.
They are very easy to make and you will get stunning results.


I have used vellum and the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die for these.

This first video shows how to color the vellum and how to make the large flower. 




The second video shows how to make the daisy type medium flower and the smaller  yellow flowers.

Gold and Teal Butterfly Card


I have been playing with some new sprays. I really like them. Here is a sample of the new Prima Color Bloom spray in Antique Gold. (cardbase and square mats)

My favorite color of the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, Tibetan Poppy Teal, was used for the teal panel and all the stamped backgrounds. Next I embossed that panel with an Anna Griffin embossing folder and went over the raised areas lightly with Antique Gold Gilder's Paste.

The teal colored tiles are stamped with VersaMark and LSG Midnight Teal embossing powder. (Looks black in picture but changes to teal color when you turn card.So Cool!)

The ribbon is from my stash. Even though you can not tell from the picture, the stitching is teal colored so it is a perfect match.

I made this card to play along with the Scrapadabadoo Crafts FB challenge. The challenges are bi-weekly and just for fun. Feel free to join us.

Prima Color Bloom spray in Antique Gold

Encrusted Rose on Scrapadabadoo Blog


I am in love with this card. In love with the roses.
I used the  Frantage Encrusted Jewel set from Stampabilities to emboss the backgrounds on the card and tag. Then I added the glass glitter from the kit on the tag and butterfly. Which are awesome. But it is the roses that are the most stunning.


Hop on over to the Scrapadabadoo blog for more details and a tutorial.
