Crafting at Glacier Speed

Repurposing Dies: Flowers

I didn’t follow the class lesson well because I was inspired to do something quite different…  Why can’t I use a die to make cut-outs that I can THEN use to make an embossing/texture plate?  Well, it’s easier than I thought, and maybe those keurig k-cups aren’t reusable, but the cardboard boxes are the perfect weight for the cut-outs.


  I tossed them randomly on the big shot platform and used a silicone pad in my ‘sandwich’.  Awesomely easy.


Then some distress ink, ribbon, some letters and a phrase… And the real die cut shape takes front-stage in a very subtle way.  Fun!  I made a million this week.  Ok, 10.  But they’re all different. 🙂

    More to come.  I’ve done a lot, I’ve just not been sharing!  My bad.

Copics: white images

Coloring white images is hard…I can’t believe I had any success at all! Eyeglasses and glass containers have dimensional glaze on them. So cute 🙂

Learning to use copics

I can’t wait to share my cards with you.  Sometimes when my ‘crafting at glacier speed’ is slower than usual, you may see some of my favorite sources of inspiration.  Life gets busy fast and time spent is not always the way you would wish it… but artistic expression is one of the few ways I have found that allow for decompression.  I don’t count copic classes in there–those are stressful!  🙂

Leave a comment to say ‘hi’ if you would like.

I’m so glad you’re here!
