Discover~Learn~Explore


I made this for one of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges over on SCS. It's kind of like VSN, only no time limit! This is just right for me because I am a very slow stamper. I like VSN, but it's a huge challenge for me, and I don't always do my best work. This challenge was to make a tag, and it seems I have been doing that quite a lot lately!

I started out with my favorite Large Tag #02 from Creative Cuts and More, cut from Bazzill Bling Black Tie Tiara. Then I used one of my Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens and Black Cherry Glimmer Mist and Misted away. Then I sprayed one of my favorite CC&M butterfly die cuts, smooshed it into my VarsaMark pad, added SU! Heat & Stick Powder, and finally Art Glitter in Fleur de Lis.

I like to order all different colors of die cuts from CC&M to have on hand. Then, if one of them doesn't match my project exactly, out comes the Glimmer Mist. I'm not very good at planning ahead. I prefer to have lots of die cuts ready and waiting when the mood strikes. Then, instead of having to drag out my bug and my Spellbinders, I just choose a precut die cut drom CC&M. I still use my bug and all the things that go with it, but I dearly love having some dies just laying there begging to be used!!

I get all my Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens here. I used Fanciful Stencils here, but Blossoms is next on my list-they are gorgeous!! Glimmer Mist here. All my Art Glitter here.
