Card from a new friend....

This weekend I attended the Stampin' Up! Fall Regionals in Winnipeg.  This was a gathering for all the demonstrators in Manitoba. It gave us all a time to meet, share, and create together.  

I met a wonderful new friend from Brandon, Pam Perrault, who gave me this card!  Isn't it beautiful!  

She used the Flower Fair framelits and Flower Patch stamp set as well as the Work of Art stamp set.

I LOVE how bright and colorful it is.  Thanks Pam!!!

Product Spotlight: Crystal Effects

Crystal Effects is a water based clear lacquer that adds depth and texture.  It will appear cloudy as you apply it, but will dry to a clear shine.

Features and Benefits:

  • gives a high gloss shine to any image
  • creates amazing 3-D effects
  • applicator tip is tiny and provides great control
  • distributed exclusively by Stampin' UP!
  • water based for quick and easy clean up
  • dries completely within an hour if applied in thin coat
  • non toxic
  • acid free
  • product #101055 7.95 page 204
Tips and Tricks: 
  • use at room temperature
  • always store upright
  • prior to use place upside down in a cup, allowing air bubbles to rise to the top. 
  • when applying keep your nozzle down until you have completely finished adding it to your project
  • apply slowly
  • allow to completely dry before handling....several thin coats are better than one thick coat. 
  • do not use a heat tool- it will bubble and ruin your project
  • because it is water based, it can cause SU markers or ink to bleed- so carefully apply thin coats
Some Great Uses for Crystal Effects:
  • an adhesive for embellishments
  • simulate water drops or dew
  • add to eyes to give them a glossy look
  • to glue DSP to a button
  • use with dazzling diamonds to add a pop of sparkle
  • use as icicles on winter projects
  • re-glue stamps to wood blocks
  • use to create the illusion of glass when applied over a vase, eyeglasses, windows etc
  • use as a fray check on ribbon ends
  • coat top of brad with crystal effects then dip in glitter
