Crystal Effects Birthday

Hi Stampers!

Sorry I skipped a few days of blogging - I was away over the weekend, visiting my youngest brother in Bethlehem PA.  I absolutely love going out there - it's so different from Pittsburgh - and they always treat me like a princess.  They always make me feel very special and LOVED.  That's the best kind of visit :)

Today's card makes use of a product called Crystal Effects.  It can be used as an adhesive, as a coating for embellishments, brushed over a stamped image - lots of things!  Here, I brushed it over the stamped image of the candles and flames to add some texture and shine to an otherwise ordinary card:

Wondering about that stamp?  Here's a little secret - it's one of our wheels!  I peeled up the rubber image from the wheel and trimmed it down to a length that would fit on one of our clear acrylic blocks.  Then I mounted it using some of the mounting stuff we sell (can't think of the name right now - lol!!).  I've never gotten the hang of the wheels, but love some of the images.  Voila!!  A flat stamp I can handle.

I used Stamp n Write Markers to color the rubber, then "huffed" it with my breath to re-moisten the ink and stamped.  Love it!!

Happy stampin'!
