Mixing It Up!

Well I am back from vacation and thought I should give you all something new to look at so here goes!!
I did a little mixing it up on this card...A little TAC and a little Spunky Stamps- add a little cuddlebug, scalloped punch, and We-R-Memory Keepers embellishments and whalaaa. I love this card! I learned a little trick making this...I bought these cool embellishments thinking I could use my regular setter on them...NOT SO MUCH! I smashed the jewell in the center the first time I tried and had a hard time getting the thing to set because they are heavy metal. I don't have a Crop-A-Dile...and as much as I'd love to buy one...I keep holding off- thinking the last hing I really need is another eyelets/hole punching tool. (yes, I have used it and yes it is awesome!!) So how to solve my problem. I took my little wire cutters that I have for jewelry making and pre-snipped splits that naturally occur when you set an eyelet. I then tore a cotton ball in half and put it on my mat so that the front of the embellishment would have something soft to rest on- mouse pad might work well also. With the slits already cut in the back of the embellishment the metal bent down so simply! It was great and although it sounds complicated at was an easy, cost effective answer! Flower Stamp: Spunky Stamps all other stamps TAC.
