From Kitchen to Craft Room!

I have to say, that Gina K sure does a great job with those StampTV videos! And you gotta love it when she saves you money too!!! This last week Gina showed us how to use ALUMINUM FOIL in our Cuttlebug to emboss and make a striking card with!!! I LOVED it!! She suggests you use the "heavy duty" foil but I actually had just bought a large roll and used the regular strength. Just use it carefully so as not to tear it. I used Gina's metallic paste to rub over the embossed foil before adhering it to my card front. The butterfly and words are from the Take Flight set. I'm still working on blending those Copic markers so bare with me. I can't promise "perfect" but I can promise I'll do my best and keep trying. LOL
On the inside I used the Tropical Flowers set and again used another technique that Gina demonstrates on her "thumping" video. I'm hoping tomorrow to do something I've never tried before, so stay-tuned. And uhh...wish me luck. Hee Hee Signature

How fun is that? The butterfly is gorgeous. I still have yet to get the Cuttlebug or the Big Shot. I am trying to justify the cost I guess. I need to work more with my stuff as it is. I want to try more coloring - I think the butterfly would be a good start - it so realistic - one would swear it will fly off the page! I don't have any Copics yet. Gotta take my pooch for a walk - rather he will take me as big as he is but he does walk well and loves to socialize up on the square. Have a great weekend. I want to play with the foil now....maybe we will go to Des Moines this weekend and I can get a Cuttlebug to play with!
