About Me

My Photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Dress for success....

Isn't that what they say, dress for the job you want? Well, I guess this says that I want to dress pretty fancy for my next job, can you see me making cards all dolled up...bwahahahahahahahaha.... Not really sure about the gown aspect of dressing up, but I love to dress up. I have a blast doing it. After all, I am a GIRL and isnt that what we do???
This is an iris fold stamp from Stamp N Plus Scrap N, I'm part of the DT. This was way too much fun and its a great way to use up scraps too. First, I stamped the image on very vanilla cs and then cutout the dress and kept the piece that I cut out....it has all the lines stamped on it so I would know where to lay the folded paper strips. There are detailed directions on the SNPSN website HERE. There are tons more stamps besides this one for iris folding. Look closely and you can see a brown sparkly spatter. Thats the metallic powdered chalk that is for sell on the site too. I mixed it together with water (following directions) and put it in a small spray bottle, and spritzed away. Its best to try it on scrap first to see how far to hold it out to get just the right amount of spritz you desire. The iris folding went together way faster than I thought it would, and the effect is so wonderful. Wouldn't this make a great prom card???
Until later, Glamourous Glams...........Gotta split.............TFL !!!!

Wow Crystal, I have never heard of this before, What a fun new idea. I dunno, I enjoy throwing the hair up, cleaning the house, then feeling at liberty to stamp my little heart out, or well, blog myself to death too
