Getting Thrifty with the CCEE Stampers
I am posting this at the last possible moment due to issues I had with this week's CCEE Stampers challenge. Well, it wasn't really the challenge itself, which was to make your own embellishments (buttons, brads, etc.). The lack of time was the issue. I had a card made on which I created faux brads, as I did on this final card. However, before they could dry, I had a DUH! moment and placed papers on top of it. Smushed brads and ruined papers were the result. So then I decided to make faux buttons......a similar sad story. I went back to the brad idea, but was smart enough to put the card in a safe place to dry. I made my brads by punching out small circles and then putting a 'bubble' of crystal effects on top to add dimension and shine.
I did use two designer papers as was required along with the faux embellishments....however, I failed to use an embossing folder, the third requirement.....would have been easy to do, I just forgot that part.
Now....travel on over to the CCEE Blog to see the fabulous embellishments created by the rest of this friendly and fabulous team.
