Glimmer Mists & Buttons

I've no completed cards to upload to my blog today.

So... here are the stamps that my friend Marion brought home from the US before Christmas.

Today I had lunch with my friend Kandy, who is a quilter and textile artist. After a delicious lunch, with a pasta sauce involving vodka :), she brought out a big bag of polyester organzas and satins and her soldering iron and we made buttons. The scraps or solid pieces of fabric have a piece of template plastic placed over them, then use the soldering iron to trace round a metal template. If you look at the first heart I made I was a bit heavy-handed with the soldering iron when I made holes for my thread to go through! Fun embellishments and totally unique.

Finally, my parents bought me some Glimmer Mists which I played with yesterday. Usually I just use all the sprays I have at random, but here the only added spray was Gold to the candy apple red on one page. Some are left sprayed, some are wiped across with kitchen roll to even out the colour. One of the blues has bubble wrap applied to it and several have cling-film spread across, which is one of my favourite ways to use them. Aren't they gorgeous?


  1. Don't you love the glimmer mists! There are so fun. And pasta sauce with vodka hmmm. Sounds right up my alley.

  2. What great stamp sets, wonderful embellishments, and beautiful background papers you created! She made some wonderful picks on those stamps!!
