I used this week's sketch at retro sketches to begin my card for my first personal therapy session. lol
I could think of only one stamp set that I wanted to use on my card. The fabulous Hostess set, Carry On, of course!
Food solves all a woman's problems, right? ;) So the next time I feel an overreaction coming on, I will eat a cupcake! I rather like that challenge...until my hips start to grow probably! I was talking to my dear friend and fellow demonstrator, Aimee Cretsinger, and she shared with me another way to use Dazzling Diamonds to cover an entire image...adhesive sheets! I stamped my sentiment and die cut it with the Window Frames Collection Framelits. I then put it inside an adhesive sheet and used my bone folder to rub the adhesive onto the image. Then all I had to do was pour the Dazzling Diamonds onto the cardstock and shake it off to get rid of the excess. This was so much easier than using Heat & Stick Powder! Thanks for the tip, Aimee!
