Creativity...at Last!


Glitter a Go-Go, Glitter card stock and regular cardstock, Sizzex machine and cuddlebug machine, Embossing pad, die cuts, mermaid stamp, prisma colour pencils, gems, scissors, glue pen

Simon Says-Anything Goes
Crafty Creations-Anything Goes
Color Throwdown-Coral pink, periwinkle blue, Grass green, Sandy Colour-CTD532

Finally! I actually have made 3 other cards but I have not posted them yet plus I tried making ornaments using my alcohol inks which was fun but getting the white paint inside the ornament to make the glass balls opaque was a challenge since I bought think paint. The messy story will appear later on this year once I spray them with a glossy finish.

I had so much fun creating this card and card making makes the bad crap disappear like a fart in the wind (To quote from Shawshank Redemption). I stamped and coloured the mermaid and fussy cut her out. I added the sparkle and used hairspray to set the sparkle so it would not come off on one's fingers. I used my cuddlebug machine to roll the sandy coloured cardstock, in the embossing folder, through, and adhered it to the glitter cardstock and adhered that to the blue cardstock. I took a new diecut and used the sizzex to roll the blue paper, and then the green paper, to cut out the design. So easy and fun! I glued all of it down including the mermaid and then added some gems to complete the look. The little sentiment can be used for anything and almost anyone. I would never give this card to my hubby but that idiot in the ballgown at the Oscars would be happy to get this:)

I hope I can post every week if not more on my card making. Time will tell:) Have a great week!

  11. This is absolutely amazing. I am totally impressed with the fussy cutting you did on the mermaid. That must have taken forever. I also like how you corralled the glitter with hair spray. Good call. Lovely card.

  19. I love this! I'm a huge fan of anything beach-y. I'm in the process of turning my house on the prairies into a beach house until I get the hell out of here and move to an island.

    Beautiful work, Birgit.

  20. Hi there, Birgit! Sorry I haven't been around the blog much. I had a difficult 2018 and 2019 is somewhat rocky too! I'm finding it hard to get creative and my craft room is full of memories I'd rather not relive every time I pick up a stamp or die. But... things can only get better right? Enough about me... I am in love with your glittery sparkly blingy card. And you're right - it would be totally wasted on a man! xxx
