Hidy Ho Stampers,
So yesterday was St. Patrick's day. What would St. Patrick's Day be at the Valder household without our traditional Shamrock-Shaped Meatloaf and Green Mashed Potatoes for dinner (for normal people it's corn beef and cabbage – well that says a lot about us, we are NOT normal). So take a look.
That IS a shamrock!
They were greener than the picture looks! mmmmm
and here is the asparagus with shredded cheese!
Okay down to work! My card of the day today is all about the All Dressed up suite! Today I used only the dress form. I own a real dress form (I call her Lillie) and she goes with me to my "shows". I put all my handmade Jewelry on her to sell. So this dress form suite is near and dear to my heart.
Lillie – I found her at the neatest store in downtown Schenectady, NY.
The store is called Bliss and it's sooooo way cool! I love, love, love her stuff!
The dress form is collaged first. This is how you do it.
Take a piece of cardstock (whisper white or very vanilla) 5 1/2 x 2 3/4. Start ripping Designer Series Paper (I used the Tea For Two pack) and rip them into small pieces. For the next step you will need your Silicone mat because you need to get the snail adhesive close to the edges of the designer series paper. Just randomly rip and stick making sure the dress form fits on your decorated piece! It should look like the picture above.
Next you want to run it through your big shot. Notice I did not cut it square on the page. That is because I wanted certain colors to appear on my card. So you can twist and turn until you see what you like through the framelit. Cool huh?
