I had the opportunity to do some experimenting with Diamond Glaze for a "How'd They Do That" tutorial I posted yesterday over in the My Favorite Things Forum on Splitcoast. The glittery spider web on this card was my favorite project! Check out the whole tutorial HERE.
The sentiment and spider are from the new Ghoulish Label Set by My Favorite Things. I adore this set - such a fun, unique mix of Halloween-themed images! The papers are all from the Twilight collection by Memory Box. The skinny ribbon is from the Spooktacular Ribbon Collection by My Favorite Things (out of stock at the moment, it looks like) and the black Swarovski crystals are from the Spooktacular Adornments collection, also from MFT. It's hard to see, but I created a frame using the Labels 4 Nestabilities and popped it up from the card base so that the web appears to be floating (it's actually on acetate). Here are a couple of shots that show that a little bit better.
I'm not normally much of a "technique" stamper, so this was really fun!
My older two kids started school yesterday, one in third grade and one in kindergarten. I'm so proud of myself for surviving my daughter's first wardrobe crisis (it seemed a bit cool out for the first day outfit we'd picked out) and for not breaking down in tears as the afternoon kindergarten bus drove away. It was hard, though! Now tonight, I'll take my youngest to preschool orientation - yikes! I feel like they're ALL flying the coop! Actually, my little Gabe-Gabe won't start school until November, when he hits that magic 2 1/2 mark. But he'll get a chance to meet his teachers tonight. And I'll get a chance to see if he's even remotely ready for school (I'm thinking not)!
Happy Wednesday, friends!
