EONAC8 and SSNOTIME129

This card is actually for 2 challenges - Susie and Allison's Everything Old is New Again #8 which is to use a tool you just HAD to have and haven't used and Sharon's Stamp Simply #129 to use a punched border. I HAD to have the Tattered Angels glimmer mist when it first hit the scene. Searched all over and finally found some at a scrapbook store in a nearby town that has since gone out of business. I got several bottles and had to go on a huge search to find them today. I wanted to make a blingy card using some of the new BG paper I picked up today and also my new labels nesties (sorry, don't remember which number they are {eta - they're labels ten}). I thought these little gems (you remember, the ones in the jewelry department that work so perfectly with paper crafting) would bling this up nicely and yet something was missing. Presto - Glimmer Mist - now can someone tell me how to keep the paper from getting all curly? The punched border is a MS punch - isn't it darling?


Card base is Rich Razzleberry. Punched layer is More Mustard. DP is from BG's Kioshi collection. Purple die cut is Plum Pudding from PTI. Sentiment is from Well Scripted by SU. A nice mixture of the wonderful choices we have out there in the grand world of paper crafting. I celebrate the diversity and the creative freedom that it allows me!

Thanks for visiting today.

Oh, yummy card! I bought some of that glimmer mist a couple years ago and I have never used it. Actually, I tested it on a piece of cardstock once and when it curled up I gave up. If anyone answers your question about that please let me know how to fix that. And buying gems in the jewelry department - is that less expensive than a craft store? Love your card. Thanks for joining us.

You already have the new BG? Argh! Sometimes I hate living in Canada...hee hee! Darling! I have a bottle of copper glimmer mist that I used quite a bit on the altered frames I made for my MIL. I liked it a lot for chipboard in particular. I really like the pizazz it added here!

I was going to comment on your amazing shimmery cardstock! What a great idea.
My scrapbooking friend uses a lot of glimmer mist, she sprays lightly and lets it dry, the cuts and does what she must.

Beautiful card! I love the look of the glimmer mist. I've never used it before, so no tips here. I love the new label die shape too and how you accented the ends with jewels! Best, Curt
